If you and your husband do not personally know an [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], I would definitely think more on this one. We didn’t know an [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] either but still didn’t use it, and I’ve regretted it. Now, eighteen months later, we still do not personally know one, ha. Therefore, my biggest fear with [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] has proven so far to not be true. Of course, I hear it regularly at the playground with my daughters. But in reality, just hearing it makes me love it all the more.
I suggest you write out your options with you and your husband’s name and see which one feels the most natural for your family. Also, I would order my Starbucks or Chick-fil-a under some of the names we were considering just so I could hear another individual say it out. Actually, one name that was very high on our list, we did the Starbucks thing and I cringed when I heard it, ha! Of course that one was taken off the list immediately.
I’m usually not a fan of two middles but I do think it could work well here so that you can use the meaningful [name_u]Grey[/name_u]. [name_f]My[/name_f] favorite name to do this with is [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] as it makes the two names seem like middles rather than a run on of names.
[name_f]Claire[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_u]Grey[/name_u] flows very well.
