Classy quirky names?

[name]Hi[/name], everyone. I’m expecting a baby girl in three months but haven’t chosen a name yet. It’s getting down to crunch time, so I really need some advice. I imagine her to be a quirky little cutie because that’s the way her parents are(: I think she’ll be a funny, sweet girl, and since her father and I are really artistic, we’ll open her up to music and art as early as possible. I want her to be a dreamer, and for her to chase her dreams. We’re also a household of readers. Our favorites are the classics, like ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and ‘Wuthering Heights’. I like beautiful classy names like [name]Alice[/name] and [name]Cassandra[/name]- I love vintage!- but my husband likes quirky names, like [name]Sky[/name] and [name]Rain[/name]. We don’t plan on giving her a middle name, so her full name would be ______ [name]Rose[/name]. I like the name [name]Cecilia[/name], but I want some more ideas. Any suggestions? Nothing too ‘hippy’ please(:
Our other kids names are [name]Oliver[/name], [name]Delia[/name], [name]Siri[/name], and [name]Micah[/name] (pronounced MEE-KAH).

I love [name]Cecilia[/name] as a name but think it may be too close to [name]Delia[/name], so I’d probably go with something else-- maybe [name]Cecily[/name] instead?

Here are some suggestions that I think would work well with [name]Oliver[/name], [name]Delia[/name], [name]Siri[/name], and [name]Micah[/name]:


If you like Cecila, what about [name]Cecily[/name] or [name]Cicely[/name]?


[name]Cecilia[/name] is gorgeous!


I second [name]Ione[/name] and [name]Nora[/name] and will add:

[name]Lillie[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Uma[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Oona[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Iola[/name] [name]Rose[/name]

[name]Lydia[/name] and [name]Clarissa[/name] are two that immediately came to mind for me. [name]Lydia[/name] and your DD’s name, [name]Delia[/name], are both on our list right now. :slight_smile:

Ok, I am in [name]LOVE[/name] with the full “[name]Honora[/name]” not just [name]Nora[/name], [name]Honora[/name] [name]Rose[/name]… It has everything…

[name]Oliver[/name], [name]Delia[/name], [name]Siri[/name] and [name]Micah[/name] are all quirky, that’s for sure!
[name]How[/name] about…

I love suggestions of [name]Clementine[/name] and [name]Cecily[/name]!

Quirky classic girl names:
[name]Flora[/name] ([name]Flo[/name])
[name]Penelope[/name] ([name]Penny[/name])
[name]Josephine[/name] ([name]Jo[/name] / [name]Fifi[/name] / [name]Feeney[/name])
[name]Matilda[/name] ([name]Tilly[/name])

Oh, do [name]Abigail[/name] nn [name]Birdie[/name]! Or [name]Ramona[/name]. :slight_smile: Sounds fun.


I gave a character in a story I wrote once the name [name]Helenora[/name], and her middle name was [name]Rose[/name]. I think that could work for you due to the quirky factor (have you ever met a [name]Helenora[/name]?) and the classic elements, like the fact that it combines [name]Helen[/name] and [name]Nora[/name].

For you and your family, I’d also suggest some classic Greek/[name]Roman[/name] names, like [name]Phoebe[/name], [name]Junia[/name], [name]Lydia[/name], [name]Lucia[/name], [name]Aurora[/name] (goddess of the dawn), and [name]Xanthe[/name].
