Baby girl due in 5 weeks!!!

Hello! It’s been a while since I visited because since before 20 weeks I had a name picked. Many of you may remember it, [name]Finch[/name] Firefly. When I found out it was a girl in [name]January[/name], Firefly felt a little off. I still love it and its still on the list but I added [name]Finch[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name] to the list just in case. Now that baby is almost here, I started to panic about her name. This is my last baby and I want to love love love the name. I don’t know if I still feel that way. I brought up [name]Happy[/name] to my DH last night because its a name I’ve been dragging along in my mind since the beginning of my pregnancy. And he really likes it and can imagine it being our girl’s name. Only problem is I CANNOT find a middle name I love. So I’m bringing the list to the hospital but I need help completing it. Any suggestions for [name]Happy[/name]'s middle or quirky edgy firsts. Lets hear it!!

[name]Finch[/name] Firefly
[name]Finch[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name]
[name]Happy[/name] ???
??? [name]Happy[/name]

What about [name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Happy[/name]? [name]Happy[/name] probably sounds better in the middle so it doesn’t sound like an adjective.
Go with your gut!

I agree with wrenmaple. [name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Happy[/name] is sweet, quirky and works. Any adjective in the first slot runs the risk of turning the name into an object/descriptor pair, but a word that is as commonplace as happy, with not much precedent as a first name, definitely can be construed that way.

FWIW I really like [name]Finch[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name]. I think it’s very special.

Other first name suggestions, paired with [name]Happy[/name]. I really like the way a more formal name is brought down to earth by unpretentious [name]Happy[/name].

[name]Serena[/name] [name]Happy[/name] [calm, serene]
[name]Marina[/name] [name]Happy[/name] [of the ocean]
[name]Aurea[/name] [name]Happy[/name] [golden]
[name]Stella[/name] [name]Happy[/name] [star]
[name]Alethea[/name] [name]Happy[/name] [truth]
[name]Nereida[/name] [name]Happy[/name] [sea nymph]
[name]Ilaria[/name] [name]Happy[/name] [mirthful-- double-shot of happiness]
[name]Perla[/name] [name]Happy[/name] [pearl]
[name]Sapphira[/name] [name]Happy[/name] [sapphire]
[name]Silvana[/name] [name]Happy[/name] [forest]
Siofra [name]Happy[/name] [prn shee-fra, ‘fairy’]
[name]Dahlia[/name] [name]Happy[/name] [the dahlia flower]

I still really like [name]Finch[/name]. And although I kind of like it, I agree that [name]Happy[/name] in the first spot can sound like an adjective.
[name]How[/name] about:
[name]Azalea[/name] [name]Happy[/name]
[name]Calliope[/name] [name]Happy[/name]
[name]Zinnia[/name] [name]Happy[/name]
[name]Aviva[/name] [name]Happy[/name]
[name]Aziza[/name] [name]Happy[/name]
[name]Hero[/name] [name]Happy[/name] (not the greatest flow, but from [name]Finch[/name] Firefly, I assume you like alliteration?)

I also like [name]Poppy[/name] for you. It has the same kind of bright feel as [name]Happy[/name]. Maybe in the first name, instead of [name]Happy[/name]?
[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Lark[/name]
[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Finch[/name]
[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name]
[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Coraline[/name]

[name]Aziza[/name]!!! I went to school with an [name]Aziza[/name] and loved the name so much. I have since forgot about it. Thank you for reminding me of it!!! Going on the list. I like [name]Aziza[/name] [name]Finch[/name] too.

I still like [name]Finch[/name] Firefly the most. [name]Happy[/name] is cute in theory, but it definitely makes me think “[name]Happy[/name] [name]Gilmore[/name]” right away, and then I start thinking of all the words that rhyme with [name]Happy[/name] (slappy, crappy… ehh, major teasing potential) I understand your panic, but remember how much you loved [name]Finch[/name] Firefly at the beginning, maybe it is THE name?

Some more suggestions…


I’d go with [name]Finch[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name]. Good luck!

I’m glad I could help. For the record, I love [name]Aziza[/name] [name]Finch[/name]. I love [name]Finch[/name] [name]Aziza[/name] too!

Have you considered [name]Aziza[/name] Firefly?
[name]Finch[/name] Firefly is pretty kick-ass but with one little girl I’d want to give her a slightly more feminine name than [name]Finch[/name] and I think [name]Aziza[/name] totally fits the bill without being way too “normal”.

Other suggestions:
[name]Posey[/name] (bunch of flowers) or [name]Poesy[/name] (poetry)
[name]Felicity[/name], [name]Joy[/name], [name]Bliss[/name], [name]Elysia[/name], [name]Hana[/name]

[name]How[/name] about [name]Finch[/name] [name]Elysia[/name]?

Ooh I love [name]Aziza[/name] Firefly!!

[name]Aziza[/name] Firefly is awesome!

I’m voting for [name]Aziza[/name] [name]Finch[/name]. [name]Aziza[/name] would be an awesome first name!

I really like [name]Finch[/name] and [name]Cordelia[/name] together, but I think that [name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Finch[/name] might work better than [name]Finch[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name], just because of the syllables. Two really cool names!

I like [name]Finch[/name] Firefly and [name]Happy[/name] [name]Summer[/name], [name]Happy[/name] [name]Rose[/name], [name]Happy[/name] [name]Star[/name], [name]Happy[/name] [name]Willow[/name]…

My grandfather was called [name]Happy[/name], so I can’t get on board with it.
Word names are tricky. [name]Finch[/name] Firefly sounds cool, but it is two things. A bird and an insect.
There are lots of names that mean happy. [name]Beatrice[/name], [name]Felicity[/name], [name]Allegra[/name], [name]Gwyneth[/name], [name]Ilaria[/name], [name]Hillary[/name], [name]Bliss[/name], [name]Blythe[/name].
Some other names you might like: [name]Lark[/name], [name]Wren[/name], [name]Sparrow[/name], [name]Starling[/name], [name]Feather[/name], [name]Posy[/name], [name]Petal[/name], [name]Freesia[/name], [name]Zinnia[/name], [name]Pixie[/name], [name]Promise[/name], [name]Dream[/name], [name]Story[/name], [name]Verity[/name], [name]Honor[/name], [name]Haven[/name], [name]Harmony[/name], [name]Ever[/name], [name]Winter[/name].
My favorite suggestion so far is [name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Finch[/name].

[name]Aziza[/name] Firefly is perfect! I can’t wait to see what her name will be, your children have such amazing names!

DH doesn’t like [name]Aziza[/name] :’(
I don’t like [name]Cordelia[/name] as a first. So the list remains.

Well, I still like [name]Finch[/name] Firefly. I think [name]Happy[/name] could be cute as well.

[name]Blaze[/name], [name]Fawn[/name], Flaxen, Leveret, Litany, [name]Moor[/name], Roo, Sefare, Sely, [name]Tide[/name], Zazie, [name]Zelie[/name]

[name]Finch[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name] is so perfect <3

This could be too out there, but the Japanese female name Hotaru means Firefly…
