Baby names for our family

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] Everyone,

I’m trying to figure out my name ‘style’ I guess you could say. You see…I want a name that is not overly popular, yet not so off the wall nobody can pronounce it. [name_f]My[/name_f] name is [name_f]Alisa[/name_f]. It always was butchered to [name_f]Elisa[/name_f], [name_f]Alyssa[/name_f], [name_f]Alishia[/name_f] etc! Ugh…I go by [name_f]Alise[/name_f] now.

So far I have two kids. Hopefully, we’ll have one more kiddo soon. I’m a dork and want my name before pregnancy :woman_shrugging:t4:. I like to say this is baby ___.

Anyways, my daughter was given the name [name_f]Leah[/name_f] Sunie (my mom’s middle name is Sunie. [name_f]My[/name_f] grandpa never had a son and his nickname was ‘[name_u]Sonny[/name_u]’.

I love [name_f]Leah[/name_f] Sunie! [name_f]Leah[/name_f] is easy to spell, pronounce, not overly popular and doesn’t get butchered with many variations.

Next, we had my son [name_m]Wesley[/name_m] [name_u]Miles[/name_u]-[name_u]Douglas[/name_u] ([name_u]Miles[/name_u] was my grandma’s maiden name, [name_u]Douglas[/name_u] was my brother that recently passed away first name)

So…[name_m]Wesley[/name_m], [name_f]Leah[/name_f] and ____

I stink at putting girl names together. These are names I like. I really like the nickname as an option, but it’s not a dealbreaker if not :joy:. Thanks for reading this lengthy post And your suggestions!

Names I like but don’t know the name style are [name_f]Jenna[/name_f], [name_f]Alexa[/name_f], [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] (not sure about [name_f]Audrey[/name_f]-nn options are limited), [name_f]Daniela[/name_f]/[name_f]Daniella[/name_f], [name_f]Paige[/name_f], [name_u]Harlow[/name_u], [name_u]Reagan[/name_u], [name_u]Everly[/name_u], [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], [name_u]Parker[/name_u], [name_u]Paisley[/name_u] [name_u]Mackenzie[/name_u] or [name_u]Kenzie[/name_u].

More name ideas are appreciated!

[name_m]Wesley[/name_m] and [name_f]Leah[/name_f] seem like classics to me. I think [name_f]Paige[/name_f] from your lists would fit in great.

A few other girl options:

[name_f]Hannah[/name_f]
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f]
[name_f]Natalie[/name_f]
[name_f]Julia[/name_f]
[name_f]Claire[/name_f]
[name_f]Sadie[/name_f]
[name_f]Tessa[/name_f]
[name_f]Annie[/name_f]

If you would like some boy options:

[name_u]Elliot[/name_u]
[name_m]Simon[/name_m]
[name_u]Spencer[/name_u]
[name_m]Isaac[/name_m]
[name_m]Samuel[/name_m]

I think [name_m]Wesley[/name_m] & [name_f]Leah[/name_f] are both greats names & fit well together! They are sweet, simple, & classic to me. I think [name_f]Paige[/name_f] or [name_u]Kenzie[/name_u] fit really well with [name_m]Wesley[/name_m] and [name_f]Leah[/name_f].

[name_u]Ryder[/name_u]
[name_u]Sawyer[/name_u]
[name_u]Wade[/name_u]
[name_m]Wyatt[/name_m]

Oh my…you named many of my favorite boy names. I think if we have a boy it’ll be [name_u]Jonah[/name_u] [name_u]Everett[/name_u]. I love [name_u]Easton[/name_u] and [name_u]Ryder[/name_u].

I’m picky with girl names. I like [name_u]Riley[/name_u], but feel it’s cutesy but when she’s older it won’t look right.
I like [name_f]Ava[/name_f] too…not sure if it’s popular
