First name to go with Helen

Hi everyone, newbie here and first time mom!
We’re terrible at this and all the baby name lists seem to regurgitate the same names over and over! I came across this forum and the responses are great so I signed up!
Anyway my late grandmother was named [name_f]Helen[/name_f] and I had always decided my first daughter would have her name before I married my husband. I’m struggling because our last name is a 3 syllable name beginning with H and I’m trying to avoid it being a bit of a mouthful!

First name [name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_m]Harrison[/name_m]

We like either really soft feminine names, or on the other spectrum unisex/strong names!

Thank you!

[name_f]Welcome[/name_f], @Jemmlove12!

[name_f]Glad[/name_f] you were tempted to join us :wink: and congratulations on your first baby!

I’m guessing from what you’ve said that you want to stick to shorter names, maybe 2 syllables tops?

[name_f]Do[/name_f] you care about popularity at all?

Ruby, I’m not a huge fan but I love how it sounds with [name_f]Helen[/name_f], it’s the first sound that I’ve liked as a double name and I like [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Helen[/name_f] but not [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] said alone! Hmm that’s something to think about! Thank you!

Delilah is in my list ! [name_u]Willow[/name_u] and [name_f]Lucia[/name_f] I love these!

Well if baby was a boy, we’d go [name_m]Jax[/name_m] [name_m]George[/name_m] [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] and I like the ring to that but open to suggestion, I often find short girls names more popular yeah! [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_f]Etta[/name_f] [name_f]Alba[/name_f] and [name_u]Wren[/name_u]!

Ivy [name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_m]Harrison[/name_m]
[name_f]Daliah[/name_f] [name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_m]Harrison[/name_m]!

Love these

Is super cool!

How about [name_u]Lux[/name_u] [name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_m]Harrison[/name_m]?

That is cool! But because we’re set on that, if we eventually have a boy I’d like to keep that name [name_u]Free[/name_u] and I’m not sure siblings [name_m]Jax[/name_m] and [name_u]Lux[/name_u] are our style! Hmm

Hi, Congratulations! [name_f]Glad[/name_f] you joined us! I’m going to go with mainly short names too; i think that works better with a longer surname.

[name_f]Eilidh[/name_f] [name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_m]Harrison[/name_m]

Would you consider dropping the h and using [name_f]Elen[/name_f]? [name_f]Ellen[/name_f] [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] is slightly less tricky to say than [name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_m]Harrison[/name_m].

Just being devils advocate here, I actually find [name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] easier to say than [name_f]Ellen[/name_f] [name_m]Harrison[/name_m], missing the H off just makes me miss the H off [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] too :joy: in my accent anyway. And as a middle name, I guess it wouldn’t get used too much anyway.

Haha accents definitely play a big part in name flow! I’m having to really think about how people will pronounce my babes name as I am [name_f]English[/name_f] with an [name_f]English[/name_f] accent but we live in NZ where they pronounce their vowels really strange!! :weary:
I joke in the [name_f]English[/name_f] accent we have “a, e, i, o, u” but in the Kiwi accent they just have “Eeee, Eeee, Eeee, Eeee & Eeee” :joy:

:joy: definitely! my accent (pretty strong regional UK one) makes so many names sound really different, and puts me off using them. Most names starting with H go out of the window sadly :disappointed:

I really like how a three syllable first name flows with a two syllable middle name and then the thee syllable surname.
