Expecting! time for the girl’s names

Hey again everyone, I recently posted under (I think) name advice to get some ideas on some boy’s names, since we recently found out I am about 8 weeks pregnant. I’ve been on nb for nearly a decade and have loved so many names, but now that I’m choosing one for a baby, it seems like an enormous task ahead of me!

Now it’s time to talk about girl names, until we find out what we’re having. We would really like to choose a “P” name for family reasons but I’m open to others if we love it.

We both really like [name_f]Priscilla[/name_f], nn Pria or [name_f]Cilla[/name_f]. We have also discussed [name_f]Primrose[/name_f], [name_f]Perla[/name_f], [name_u]Pasha[/name_u] and [name_u]Paris[/name_u], with varying levels of “like” from both of us.

Lately I’ve been really drawn to the name [name_f]Isla[/name_f], but obviously doesn’t fit the theme and Dh doesn’t care for it.

Given these names what would you suggest? Name should work in english and spanish. Thanks in advance!

Congrats!!:two_hearts: I love Priscilla, Paris, Primrose, Perla, and Pasha! I think I would spell Perla as “Pearla” because I love the association of Pearls so much. Isla is also very cute and could be a great middle name :blush:

Some other P names I love that I think you might like are…

Penelope
Parisa
Paloma
Pomeline
Pomona
Paulina

“Poppy, Posie, Pixie, Polly, Penny, and Pia” are also all super cute P nicknames for any of the names above!:sparkling_heart:

Massive congratulations!!

I absolutely love [name_f]Primrose[/name_f] + [name_f]Perla[/name_f]!

[name_f]Priscilla[/name_f] feels very unexpected and I think would be an interesting bold choice. [name_u]Pasha[/name_u] is fun and I think [name_u]Paris[/name_u] is a lovely place name option. [name_f]Isla[/name_f] would make a trendy middle name.

You’ve had lots of fabulous suggestions so please count any repeats as me being in agreement with the berries

Summary

It’s an Estonian name and I think it has a vintage feel. It doesn’t really mean anything in Estonian. ‘Palmik’ means braid, so it could come from there. There is also a famous manor in Estonia called Palmse. :blush: But I think it sounds kinda cute. :blush:
