Really hoping for some advice on a name for our first baby, due in Dec.
We decided on a name we both love, and by sheer bad, awful, devastating luck, my brother and [name]SIL[/name] who are also expecting a girl the month before us have chosen that exact name. Now nothing else seems to compare to it and we are totally stuck. The name was [name]Eve[/name].
We loved it because its a known name but not common, short (we have a complicated surname), and feminine, with good nicknames and a lovely meaning (life).
The other names we really like are:
[name]Carys[/name] (too unusual, hard to pronounce?)
[name]Olivia[/name] (exact opposite problem - too common?)
[name]Cara[/name] (love it, except my husband’s name is [name]Karl[/name], so too similar sounding?)
Nothing we talk about ‘fits’ and I’m starting to really worry now.
What do you all think??!!
Any advice greatly appreciated!
