Got MN sorted! Need thoughts on FN for little sister

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there
We are expecting baby #3 shortly, a little girl :slight_smile:
Siblings are [name_u]Elliot[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u] and [name_f]Willow[/name_f] [name_f]Belle[/name_f].
The middle name will be [name_f]Florence[/name_f] as has significance to us both. Surname is 2 syllable and sorta rhymes with boredom.
Now we need the right first name!

I name we have both always liked is [name_f]Liberty[/name_f].
So the fallback option is [name_f]Liberty[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f].

However I just want to be sure this is the right name and that there isn’t something better out there!! I know some people seem to not like [name_f]Liberty[/name_f] bc it has patriotic/military connotations in the US?

We are in NZ and I guess I like it bc it’s a little different, has a nice meaning of freedom and it reminds me of the gorgeous fabrics at the [name_u]London[/name_u] department store!! It doesn’t have any particular connotations here.

Anyway love some suggestions and thoughts on both [name_f]Liberty[/name_f], the rest of the shortlist plus any new ideas for a great sibset!

The rest of the shortlist is:
[name_f]Sienna[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] - I love this name but think it might be weird with [name_f]Florence[/name_f] (even though I think the flow is nice - bc it’s effectively two Italian place names!)
[name_f]Luna[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
[name_f]Alexa[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
[name_f]Talia[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
[name_f]Stella[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
[name_u]Riley[/name_u] [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
[name_u]Skye[/name_u] [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
[name_u]Eden[/name_u] [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
[name_f]Amber[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f]


[name_f]Liberty[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] is lovely - [name_f]Libby[/name_f] is a cute nickname too!

[name_f]Sienna[/name_f] is my favourite girls name, so naturally I would pick this, but I do agree that being two Italian place names does kind of stick out. That being said, before I liked the name I would never have known it was a place (and its also spelt differently).

[name_f]Luna[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] is gorgeous. [name_f]Luna[/name_f] has such beautiful imagery.
[name_f]Talia[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] is simply stunning. I always think [name_f]Talia[/name_f] is Italian too but I don’t think it is. It sounds gorgeous as a combo though.
[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] is lovely. [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] is pretty common though, but that shouldn’t stop you.
[name_u]Eden[/name_u] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] - I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] this. Thinking about it, this may be my favourite, just slightly ahead of [name_f]Luna[/name_f].

I love [name_f]Liberty[/name_f]. It is a bit of a name crush for me. Beautiful name! And I think [name_f]Liberty[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] works perfectly well. Also, I think it works well with the other siblings. :slight_smile: My top picks from your list of other names would be [name_u]Eden[/name_u] or [name_f]Amber[/name_f]. They are sweet and spunky, but not too crazy.
I also adore [name_f]Luna[/name_f], but in this case, I don’t think it flows overly well with [name_f]Florence[/name_f].

[name_f]Liberty[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] is very pretty!! [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] and [name_f]Stella[/name_f] would be my runners up.

Thanks for the comments carysmarie :slight_smile: [name_f]Talia[/name_f] I gather is Hebrew and [name_f]Thalia[/name_f] is a greek goddess…
I agree about [name_u]Ruby[/name_u], it is in the top 20 where I live so I would need to reallllly love it to use a name that common. I still like it though!

Thanks mummacat and boyandgirl for your input :slight_smile:

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] berries… Any more thoughts to add?

I like [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] and [name_f]Stella[/name_f] with [name_u]Elliot[/name_u] and [name_f]Willow[/name_f], liberty is also nice with cute nickname potential [name_f]Libby[/name_f]… [name_f]Stella[/name_f] is a winner for me, partly because it’s a fun connection to have all siblings ‘double L’ names :slight_smile: also suggesting


[name_f]Talia[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] is beautiful. By far my favorite. [name_f]Liberty[/name_f] certainly has other connotations to me as an American, but trying to look at it from an international perspective I quite like it - it feels like [name_f]Glory[/name_f], a name crush of mine. [name_f]Liberty[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] or [name_f]Talia[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] would both be lovely.
