I’m so glad you like them! Yes, I prn [name]Charis[/name] as karr-iss as well, as this is closest to the original Ancient Greek pronunciation.

Objectively, I actually think [name]Charis[/name] fits better with [name]Livia[/name] than [name]Carys[/name] (even though they sound the same), as [name]Charis[/name] shares that elegant [name]Greco[/name]-[name]Roman[/name] style that [name]Livia[/name] has. I would just use [name]Carys[/name] personally because of my Welsh ancestry :wink:

I also like that with [name]Livia[/name] [name]Susannah[/name] she would have the same initials as her big sister! And it would honour you at the same time.

I really, really like the name [name]Livia[/name]- beautiful and strong at the same time. Infact, our second DD was nearly named [name]Livia[/name] but ended up as [name]Cecily[/name] after 2 weeks of deliberation. The main thing that put me off [name]Livia[/name] in the end was the similarity to [name]Olivia[/name] and the fact that lots of people would mistake her name for [name]Olivia[/name] as they hadn’t heard of [name]Livia[/name] and weren’t aware of the origins, etc. ([name]Olivia[/name] is the number one most popular name in the UK where we live). I am not trying to put you off, however, as I really do think it is a fantastic name (as is [name]Sarah[/name] [name]Lydia[/name]) but just trying to make sure you have thought about this!
I quite liked [name]Livia[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name] and [name]Livia[/name] [name]Violet[/name] but a lot of the other suggestions are excellent :slight_smile:

Again [name]Elea[/name] I hadn’t thought of the similar ititials which might be a nice link between the girls so thanks for that.I agree about [name]Charis[/name] as being appropriate for my purposes.Looking at the list again I really like the look and sound of [name]Livia[/name] [name]Alice[/name] [name]Deane[/name] -it just sounds well and looks and feels different and friendly.[name]Livia[/name] [name]Amelie[/name] is also very appealing and these A names brought to mind [name]Livia[/name] [name]Allegra[/name] and [name]Livia[/name] [name]Alexis[/name] or [name]Livia[/name] [name]Alexa[/name] (or have they too many L’s)?
Mummyof3 I appreciate your point re [name]Livia[/name] /[name]Olivia[/name] confusion and you probably have a point but I suppose I only know of one 8 year old [name]Olivia[/name] where I live so the effect may not be as bad here and I maybe a bit naive but I’m not worried about this.I also love [name]Olivia[/name] by the way and we have seriously considered this name.

I love [name]Livia[/name] with [name]Deane[/name], and I think that my favorite combo is [name]Livia[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Deane[/name].

Good luck! :slight_smile:

I don’t have any suggestions to add, just to say that I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Livia[/name]!! I really hope you do go for it, it is such a beautiful name. I also think it evokes the qualities I know you were looking for, and goes perfectly with your surname. Hooray!

I think [name]Olivia[/name] is a beautiful name too. (It was just the confusion that I thought would end up irritating me as it is popular here). I mentioned that I loved [name]Livia[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name] when we were thinking of using [name]Livia[/name]. I just noticed, however, that your surname is [name]Deane[/name] so the initials would be LSD! I think [name]Livia[/name] [name]Alice[/name] is beautiful and several of the other combinations you have mentioned.
