Fable "Faye" -- thoughts?

[name]Hi[/name] all :slight_smile:

I was doing some poking around on the “what you named your baby” board and came across choosingtheperfectname’s post about her children… when suddenly, the name [name]Fable[/name] [name]Annora[/name] [name]Valentine[/name] caught my eye!

Instant love. Although I can probably never hope to make such a perfect [name]Fable[/name] combo, I offered the name up to SO and he loved it! On the single condition that he could call her [name]Faye[/name], and no objections here! I love both [name]Faye[/name] (it’s been on our short list for a while) and [name]Fable[/name], so I’m very happy that he agrees.

So, what are your thoughts on [name]Fable[/name] “[name]Faye[/name]” on a little girl? And, what middle name would you pair with [name]Fable[/name]? (First thing that came to mind for me was [name]Fable[/name] [name]Aurelia[/name], but I like any uncommon classic girls’ names)

Last name rhymes with [name]Hogan[/name]. :slight_smile: Thanks in advance!

I like [name]Fable[/name] and [name]Gable[/name]. I also like [name]Faye[/name] on its own. [name]Do[/name] you want 2 mn?


[name]Fable[/name] is really growing on me lately. And [name]Faye[/name] is a great way to bring it down to size, so to speak. She’ll be a little sprite! If you’d like it paired with an uncommon classic…

[name]Fable[/name] [name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Antoinette[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]

[name]Fable[/name] [name]Guinevere[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Marguerite[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Octavia[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Ophelia[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]

[name]Fable[/name] [name]Theodora[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Verity[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Violetta[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Winifred[/name] [name]Hogan[/name] - I think this might be my favorite, but I’m a sucker for [name]Winifred[/name]. :slight_smile:

I think it’s an adorable name for a boy :slight_smile:

Thanks everyone! I really like [name]Fable[/name] [name]Annabelle[/name] and [name]Fable[/name] [name]Penelope[/name] from your suggestions. [name]Marguerite[/name] is also on our short list as a FN. :slight_smile:

I thought some more about it and SO suggested [name]Fable[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] and [name]Fable[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name]. There will be two mns but I’m going to give my maiden name to each of my kids as a second mn. So…

[name]Fable[/name] [name]Annabel[/name] [name]Kenyon[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]?
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Kenyon[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]?
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Kenyon[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]?
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] [name]Kenyon[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]?
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Kenyon[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]?

Let’s see…

[name]Fable[/name] [name]Annabelle[/name] - On second thought, this might be “bel” heavy. Especially since [name]Kenyon[/name] and [name]Hogan[/name] both have that strong end sound, if the first two names sound matchy it’ll be problematic.

[name]Fable[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] - The “ble” and the “el” seem to run together for me when I say it. While I love [name]Eleanor[/name], this definitely isn’t my favorite. Which makes me sad b/c I want to love it.

[name]Fable[/name] [name]Gabriella[/name] - While I’m not usually a fan of [name]Gabriella[/name], I think this works. It echoes the sound of [name]Fable[/name] but not in a sing-songy way like [name]Annabelle[/name]. That “a” on the end makes all the difference.

[name]Fable[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] - [name]Love[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] but I can’t see this working. [name]Katherine[/name], [name]Kenyon[/name] and [name]Hogan[/name] all have a strong “n” sound and that’s overwhelming when said in a row. If anyone pronounces it “kath’rin” you’ll have four names with two syllables in a row to top it all off.

[name]Fable[/name] [name]Penelope[/name] - This has the most charm out of your choices to me. [name]Penelope[/name] is classic enough to balance the more unusual [name]Fable[/name], but it still has pep and an element of quirkiness what with those marvelous “p” sounds. Also, I think having four syllables in this spot helps with flow, since her other three names all have two syllables. That point applies to [name]Gabriella[/name] too, now that I think about it.

So, my favorites in order are:
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Kenyon[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]
[name]Fable[/name] [name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Kenyon[/name] [name]Hogan[/name]
