Okay, so it’s becoming clear that we need help naming this baby girl! Husband and I are having difficulty agreeing on a name, and when we do both like a name, our last name often kills it. So, I’m looking for suggestions! Here’s what we know so far. [name]Baby[/name] Girl will have middle name [name]Mary[/name] and last name Head. We need a first name.
[name]Just[/name] for some background on what we like, our first daughter is named [name]Josephine[/name] (nn [name]Josie[/name]). Also, here are the names we each currently like, but either can’t agree on, or go badly with our last name:
[name]Cecily[/name] (husband says it’s strange and too frilly)
[name]Charlotte[/name] (husband just doesn’t like it)
[name]Susanna[/name] (I agree it’s pretty, but I can’t get past the song Oh, [name]Susanna[/name], and I’m not crazy about any of the “[name]Su[/name]” nicknames)
[name]Eleanor[/name] (I’m just not loving it; and I think it sounds too old-ladyish when combined with [name]Josephine[/name].)
We both like:
[name]Lilah[/name] (We’re concerned about the trendiness of it, but, so far, this is our top choice that we both agree we like, and that sounds okay with Head.)
[name]Luella[/name] (The general redneck perception of it seems to make it unusable, though.)
[name]Eliza[/name] ([name]Love[/name] this name, but it sounds really odd with Head. Husband thinks it sounds fine together, though.)
So, suggestions … ?
__________ [name]Mary[/name] Head
