I have been"'lurking" on these boards for a while and I am so impressed with comments from members that I decided to finally take a stab at it, and ask for your help
We are having a little girl in a couple of months and we just can not find a name- well, I guess the correct way to say it is: I can not find a name. The first name/s we agreed on are a [name]Cora[/name] name- meaning we liked the idea of calling her [name]Cora[/name] as a nn with a longer name as her formal name. Considerations were [name]Coralie[/name], [name]Coraline[/name], [name]Coralynn[/name]. During the process of trying to decide which one, I thought we should keep looking, kept pushing it (dumb I know, I mean DH agreed why push it?! lol). I finally got him to make a list and the only name we each had was [name]Violet[/name]. So then we thought- ok that’s her name! [name]Violet[/name]! Now I am having trouble with the name. I don’t know what it is about the name, I can’t put my finger on it…is it a weak name? too girly? too old fashioned? too close to violent? Then there is the name I love…[name]Jovie[/name]. but I don’t know if I could name my little girl this. I am afraid people would automatically think [name]Jon[/name] Bon [name]Jovi[/name], especially family members. You see, I am a huge fan, yet the name has absolutely nothing to do with him. I first heard it in the movie “Elf” and instantly fell in love, I didn’t even think about Bon [name]Jovi[/name] until later on. It means joyful. My DH has pretty much given up and just said tell me her name when you decide (although he still calls her [name]Violet[/name]).
So my questions for you are what are your thoughts on the names? Cora____/[name]Violet[/name]/[name]Jovie[/name]? any suggestions? any ideas on what [name]Jovie[/name] could be a nn for? the middle name is a family name- [name]Elda[/name] (sorry no budging). not too worried about our last name since it’s unusual and she will probably change it when she is married anyways LOL. DS is [name]Matthew[/name] [name]Jackson[/name]. Help set me strait or at least help point me in a good direction haha
[name]TIA[/name] everyone, I really appreciate your help (and sorry for the super long post).
