DH likes Eden now, want opinions!

[name]Hi[/name] all!
I posted last week about my twins’ names. I thought DH had said no to [name]Eden[/name], but apparently, I was wrong? (or, likely, he changed his mind? :roll: ) He says he really likes it. So much, that he wants to use it. After posting here, I got kind of worried about [name]Eden[/name] being trendy and I was really pulling for [name]Nola[/name], but DH really doesn’t like [name]Nola[/name], or any of the other names on my list, for that matter.
Actually, we did find one more agreeable name- [name]Eve[/name]. BUT, [name]Eve[/name] and [name]Vale[/name] just. doesn’t. work. When I say it out loud it sounds like [name]Even[/name] [name]Vale[/name]. So, we’re left with [name]Eden[/name] (this is way better than our DD- we weren’t down to one name until the day we named her!)

After the fight [name]Wren[/name]'s name turned into, I’m really tempted to jump and just name our girl [name]Eden[/name], but I want to hear what you all think first. Want thoughts about [name]Eden[/name] - what kind of name does [name]Eden[/name] seem like to you? Does [name]Eden[/name] fit with [name]Wren[/name]? What is your image of a little girl [name]Eden[/name]? and also about the pairing of [name]Eden[/name] and [name]Vale[/name].

Also, if you like [name]Eden[/name], help with middles. She will have two middles, the first, a name of our choosing- a more popular mainstream choice, the second a family middle.

DH loves [name]Sophia[/name]. I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it. We both don’t want to use it for a FN bc of popularity, however, I could see using it in the first middle spot, as a gesture to DH for choosing one of the names off my list…

Which of my family names do you think fit best w/ [name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]?
If you don’t like [name]Sophia[/name], what other popular/mainstream names would you put with [name]Eden[/name]?
[name]Wren[/name]'s first middle is [name]Audra[/name], if that helps.

we’re still stuck on [name]Vale[/name]'s middle name. Scanning the family tree to see if any other names that don’t start with A pop out at me. I’ll be begging for help, I’m sure, when I find some :smiley:

I like [name]Eden[/name]. I say go for it. I knew a litle girl named [name]Eden[/name], who’d be in her mid-20s by now, she was an awesome kid so that gives me a great impression of the name. I’d avoid [name]Virginia[/name] in the middle as they’re both place names - lovely places but still too much.

I’m glad you and DH were able to come to an agreement! I think [name]Eden[/name] and [name]Wren[/name] work wonderfully as siblings.

From your name list, I really love the combo [name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Elise[/name].

If you want to use popular names other than [name]Sophia[/name], below are some combo suggestions:
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Ava[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Isobel[/name] [name]Marie[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Olivia[/name] [name]Jo[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Abigail[/name] [name]Norma[/name]

I agree with the previous poster that [name]Virginia[/name] wouldn’t work as well since both [name]Eden[/name] and [name]Virginia[/name] are place names.

[name]Wren[/name], [name]Vale[/name] and [name]Eden[/name] are seriously perfect together! What a great sibset!
As for middle names, for some reason [name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] doesn’t sound right to me. I guess its the strong “Ee” sound in each name that is throwing me off. [name]How[/name] about these names instead:
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Lily[/name] [name]Jo[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Claire[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Madeline[/name] [name]Elise[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Marie[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Amelia[/name] [name]Marie[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Isabelle[/name] [name]Marie[/name]
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Annabel[/name] [name]Virginia[/name]

If you do end up going with [name]Sophia[/name], then i think [name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Marie[/name] or [name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Elise[/name] works.

Let me know what you think!

Yep, I like [name]Eden[/name] and bestow the official nameberry blessing on it as a good twin choice with [name]Vale[/name] and sib choice with [name]Wren[/name]. Fantastic! And of course [name]Sophia[/name] is gorgeous, has a lovely meeting, and is perfect in the middle with [name]Eden[/name].

[name]Eden[/name] is beautiful, and works perfectly with [name]Vale[/name] and [name]Wren[/name]!

I do like [name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Elise[/name] from your options.

Another option would be [name]Eden[/name] [name]Virginia[/name] [name]Elise[/name] (and look, the initials would be [name]Eve[/name]! :smiley: )

Let us know what you ultimately decide!

Yep, I like Eden and bestow the official nameberry blessing on it as a good twin choice with Vale and sib choice with Wren. Fantastic! And of course Sophia is gorgeous, has a lovely meeting, and is perfect in the middle with Eden.

WOW, thank you, [name]Pam[/name]! :smiley: (and DH loves [name]Sophia[/name] for the meaning-- he’s a philosophy geek)
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Marie[/name] or [name]Elise[/name] she is!
I love it! Hooray!

I can’t believe [name]Wren[/name] didn’t have a name until almost born and now this little girl has a name in the second trimester!
You all are great help!

I think [name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Marie[/name] is best out of [name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Marie[/name] and [name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Elise[/name], but I like [name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Mary[/name] and [name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Molly[/name] - a [name]Mary[/name] variant! - even more. What do you think?

Congrats on deciding on [name]Eden[/name]'s name! [name]Wren[/name], [name]Vale[/name], and [name]Eden[/name] are perfect!


As the others have said, [name]Eden[/name], [name]Wren[/name], and [name]Vale[/name] sound fantastic together! I really like the name [name]Eden[/name]. When I think of [name]Eden[/name], I think of a girl who’s warm, friendly, compassionate, and peaceful. It sounds sweet without being too “syrupy”. It also has a gentle strength to it (if that makes sense). Unfortunately, I don’t really have middle name suggestions right now. I hope my post was helpful in some way, though!

I really like [name]Eden[/name]. I think it sounds soft and feminine. Very peaceful (if that makes sense).
I would think of [name]Eden[/name] as beautiful, friendly, confident, sincere.
I like it with [name]Wren[/name] as well. I like that they are both 4-letter names with the same ending but sound completely different (not too matchy-matchy). [name]Wren[/name] and [name]Eden[/name] :slight_smile:

As for middles, I like [name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] and I would probably pair it with [name]Jo[/name]. [name]Eden[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Jo[/name] seems to flow best for me out of all those names.

Good [name]Luck[/name] :slight_smile:
