Finally back on to other names!! (Girls lists)

Ok, so I had quite the obsession with the name [name]Katniss[/name]. I was almost going to use it…until I saw the movie. Now don’t get me wrong, I loved the movie. It’s just while I was watching the movie I realized I just don’t want to name my daughter [name]Katniss[/name] anymore. I’m not exactly sure what made me change my mind but I’m certainly glad to be able to see clearly again. Although [name]Katniss[/name] will always have a place in my heart <3

So after that I started to look at my lists with my husband and we went through them and added, deleted and moved things around a bit.

So we REALLY want some opinions on our girls lists :slight_smile: (I will be posting our boys lists soon as well in the boys names Forum)

First Names:

Bethany “Beth”
Calista (No nickname)
Flora “Flower”
Calais (pronounced Kal-lay)

Middle Names:


So what do you think? :slight_smile:

I know a one-year-old girl whose name is [name]Bethany[/name] [name]Rose[/name], and I mean, she’s an adorable baby, but the name just doesn’t quite do it for me personally–I just think it’s sort of, well…sort of there, if that makes any sense!
[name]Claire[/name] is my favorite name from your list, but I don’t think many of your middle name choices go with it well.
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Elizabella[/name] or [name]Claire[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name], perhaps…
I think [name]Azalea[/name] [name]Bliss[/name] is pretty.

I like [name]Alice[/name] [name]Sage[/name] the best.
Other names that you may like are:

My favorite combos would be:
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Elizabella[/name]
[name]Adella[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Elizabella[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Rose[/name]

Of the first names, I like best:


Of the middle names, I like best:


Oh, and I think it’s best you’re not going to use [name]Katniss[/name]. I think it’s going to end up being a very dated name down the road because it will likely be a rather short-term trend.

First Names:

[name]Bethany[/name] “[name]Beth[/name]” - very nice, classic name. [name]Beth[/name] is a great nn.
[name]Rose[/name] - Beautiful. The one exception to my general rule about not naming children after foliage or plants.
[name]Adella[/name] - NMS.
[name]Azalea[/name] - NMS.
[name]Rosalind[/name] - [name]Lovely[/name].
[name]Claire[/name] - Classic. Popular right now, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
[name]Audrey[/name] - Pretty.
[name]Della[/name] - NMS.
[name]Calista[/name] (No nickname) - No thanks.
[name]Flora[/name] “[name]Flower[/name]” - NMS.
[name]Alice[/name] - Pretty.
[name]Calais[/name] (pronounced [name]Kal[/name]-lay) - ok, I guess. You’ll get a lot of questions wanting to know the significance of the city, though.
[name]Tatiana[/name] - Like this one. [name]Tanya[/name], [name]Ana[/name], [name]Tia[/name], [name]Tina[/name], Tani, [name]Nina[/name], etc are all great nn for it.

Middle Names:

[name]Bliss[/name] - No thanks.
[name]Echo[/name] - Um… no?
[name]Genevieve[/name] - [name]Love[/name] this one.
[name]Sage[/name] - Eh. It’s a plant.
[name]Elizabella[/name] - Stick with [name]Elizabeth[/name] or [name]Isabella[/name]. The mush-combo is weird. Maybe Elispeth, or Elisabette?
[name]Maeve[/name] - Very pretty.
[name]Catalina[/name] - ok

[name]Elizabella[/name] is a real name…so jealous you might get to use it! My boyfriend hates it…but I can’t get it out of my head

I love these first names…


I like…

I love these middle names…
