Totally different but love them equally.
[name]Love[/name] [name]Greer[/name] [name]Garson[/name] and the vintage but modern sound of [name]Greer[/name]. And love that it’s unfussy and straightforward. I always wanted a one syllable name. But then I also love shortening a longer name to a one syllable nn to make it more personal. (I’m [name]Amy[/name], I love when people call me [name]Ame[/name], makes me feel loved).
[name]Love[/name] [name]Phoebe[/name] for it’s spunk but history that keeps it grounded. And it’s nicknames.
We’re considering [name]Greer[/name] [name]Phoebe[/name] or [name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Greer[/name] to get both in. I know the flow is not ideal but I’m not really concerned with the perfect flow, we’d rather get to use both our favorite names.
[name]Sister[/name] is [name]Olive[/name] [name]Louise[/name]… mostly [name]Ollie[/name], sometimes [name]Ollie[/name] [name]Lou[/name] or [name]Lolly[/name] or even just [name]Lou[/name]. Probably [name]Liv[/name] when she outgrows [name]Ollie[/name].
So what do you say? Which is better as a first name? Not which order sounds better as a complete name? We’d probably use both names at home a lot, not necessarily together, just use them both, especially nicknames [name]Fee[/name] and [name]Bee[/name] and G :), but she’d be known by her first name outside the home. I can’t let either go!
