Baby #2...need a girl's name!


We’re expecting our second baby this summer. We have a daughter named [name]Emerson[/name] ([name]Emme[/name] for short), but I want to go with something more traditional with the second baby. We have a boys name picked out (family name), but are struggling with the girls name. Names I’m considering, but am not sure if they “go” with [name]Emerson[/name] are:


Also…I need middle name suggestions!

I agree that these names don’t go with [name]Emerson[/name], but I [name]LOVE[/name] all of them! I think you should go for it, especially if you call [name]Emerson[/name] by a more traditional nn like [name]Emma[/name] or [name]Emmy[/name].

My favorite on your list is [name]Vivian[/name] (but I would spell it like this), which also used to be considered a unisex name at one time.

Some other names you might like, if you feel strongly that you want the sibling names to match:

Preference from your list is [name]Adelaide[/name], as i dont consider this a traditional name and thus in keeping with your more unusal [name]Emerson[/name].

[name]How[/name] about [name]Elliot[/name] nn [name]Lottie[/name] or [name]Ellie[/name] x

I think [name]Charlotte[/name] and Viven go great! Here are a few of my sugestons:
[name]June[/name] ( this goes really well with [name]Emmy[/name] but not really emmerson…)
[name]Kelly[/name]- I usually avoid “common” names but emmerson and [name]Kelly[/name] are so cute together! Depending on how often you call emmerson [name]Emmy[/name] you could call her Kell so the names don’t rhyme if that matters to you.
[name]Felicity[/name] - Flyss for short!

[name]Hi[/name]! I love every name on your list, but agree that they don’t “go” with [name]Emerson[/name].

The middle name’s flow depends on your last name, but you may like:

[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]
[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]

Names like [name]Emerson[/name] you may like as first names:

Good luck! :slight_smile:
