Evangeline Xanthe...<3 I think it might be the one.

This one literally just crossed my mind but all of my bells went off when it did. I’ve got a short list of names that I’ve responded strongly to, but this one went straight to the top.

My Short List:

  1. [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f]
  2. [name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_f]Phaidra[/name_f]
  3. [name_f]Paloma[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]
  4. [name_f]Phaidra[/name_f] [name_f]Circe[/name_f]
  5. [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f] [name_f]Ione[/name_f]

What do you guys think? Have I found a winner?

Ooh, I like it a lot.

I like at a lot! Def my favorite combo on your list, though I love [name_f]Margot[/name_f], [name_f]Paloma[/name_f], and [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] as well. The i in [name_f]Phaidra[/name_f] is throwing me off, as I’m used to seeing an e. but here are some alt combo suggestions

[name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]
[name_f]Paloma[/name_f] [name_f]Circe[/name_f]
[name_f]Phaidra[/name_f] [name_f]Ione[/name_f]

:slight_smile:

I think so to. [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f] is gorgeous! Although I love a lot of your other names too. [name_f]Phaidra[/name_f] (spelt [name_f]Phaedra[/name_f]), and [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] are both high on my favourites list.

[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f] has a repetitive ‘an’ sound, so I’m not a fan. I accidentally smoosh it together when I read it and end up saying [name_f]Evanthe[/name_f]. They are both lovely name, but I don’t think they work together.

It doesn’t flow off my tongue very easily so that has puts me off it, sorry. However, if you love it then that’s all that matters! I really love [name_f]Paloma[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] off your list. :slight_smile:

I sort of thought the repeating syllables (in this case anyways) made the name fun to say, but the more I think about it, you might be right. Hmmmm…maybe [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f] instead.

[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f] is stunning! [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f] is alright, but hasn’t quite got that… oomph that [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] has. [name_f]Paloma[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] is adorable, too!

I prefer [name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_f]Phaidra[/name_f]!

[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] is too girly and bland for me, sorry.

[name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]! I enjoy the repetition in sound between [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f]. It makes the two a good pair [name_f]IMO[/name_f]. and [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] is such a long name that having a similar sound in the mn doesn’t overwhelm it at all.

It’s lovely! The balance is great!
