we have finally narrowed down our list to seven, and are hoping to bring it down to three or four, and then move on to middle names! I would love to know which names you would keep and which you would not (or maybe save for a middle). I am especially interested in those you don’t like, is there something negative about the names that we have missed?
We are after a name that is feminine without being to fancy. We want a name that would sound cute and spunky on a little girl (maybe with a good nickname), but also sound feminine and sophisticated on an adult.
So here is our final list (we are currently leaning towards the first four… but this could change!)
This is my husbands favourite, and I’m starting to love it too. [name]Just[/name] worried that it’s a little too ‘old lady-ish’ (not that that’s a bad thing!) Also not sure about what the best nickname would be.
Not sure if it sounds a bit like we are trying too hard for a different name. Although it is a legitimate name, there’s something about it that feels a little madeup-ish. What do you think about nn [name]Polly[/name]? - this wouldn’t be a name I would introduce her as, rather just a way of shortening the name at home (does that make sense??)
This is probably my favourite at the moment. Although it’s old lady-ish, it’s fresh enough to work on a young girl in my opinion. I also love the nn [name]Elsie[/name].
My husband has fallen in love with [name]Mannie[/name] for a girl. I think it’s cute but I don’t think it can really stand on it’s own as a full name. What could it be a nickname for? Is it too masculine?
This was my old favourite. My husband thinks it is too dated. I still like it but am just starting to get bored of it- i guess because new names keep popping up. Shooud I stick to the old favourite?
Worried about this name on a middle aged lady, it just doesn’t quite seem right.
Probably the ‘safest’ option- but it just feels a bit boring next to all the other names.
So sorry about all the questions!! I don’t expect anyone to answer them all, I just put them in to show what reservations we have with each of the names. [name]Feel[/name] free to answer the though- I would love some feedback!!!
I woud love your thoughts on our top 7!!!
