I much prefer [name]Edith[/name] [name]Abigail[/name]. It has a great flow, you can use nicknames [name]Edie[/name], [name]Abby[/name] or [name]Gail[/name], and the combo sounds much fresher to me than [name]Helen[/name] [name]Irene[/name].

Good luck! :slight_smile:

I agree with this completely! I voted for [name]Edith[/name] [name]Abigail[/name] for all of these reasons, but I think my final vote would depend on if she would go by a nn. I like [name]Edith[/name] and really like [name]Edie[/name], but if [name]Helen[/name] went by [name]Leni[/name], that would completely seal it for me–I absolutely love the nn [name]Leni[/name]. I think [name]Helen[/name] [name]Abigail[/name]/[name]Helen[/name] [name]Edith[/name], or even [name]Helena[/name] [name]Edith[/name]/[name]Helena[/name] [name]Abigail[/name] since [name]Helen[/name] isn’t a family name, would be perfect.

[name]Just[/name] don’t like [name]Edith[/name]. [name]Helen[/name] has been a fave for a while. I can only think of [name]Edith[/name] Bunker (All in the Family) or [name]Edith[/name] [name]Wilson[/name] (I’m a history nerd - President [name]Woodrow[/name] [name]Wilson[/name]'s wife).

I love [name]Edith[/name] nn [name]Edi[/name]!

I really like both [name]Edith[/name] and [name]Helen[/name], however the flow of [name]Edith[/name] [name]Abigail[/name] is better because of the overlapping structure of [name]Helen[/name] and [name]Irene[/name]. I would have voted for [name]Helen[/name] if you’d had:
[name]Helena[/name] [name]Irene[/name]
[name]Helen[/name] [name]Irena[/name]
[name]Helen[/name] [name]Iris[/name]

Good luck!

I actually think [name]Edith[/name] [name]Abigail[/name] is a little bit awkward, and that [name]Helen[/name] [name]Irene[/name] has better flow so I voted for that one. A lot would depend on the last name though. I’m not a big fan of the name [name]Edith[/name] though, I think it’s still an old-lady name (sorry). I would like [name]Abigail[/name] [name]Edith[/name] better for that combination.

I love both [name]Edith[/name] and [name]Helen[/name]/a, so this was a hard choice for me. I voted for [name]Edith[/name] [name]Abigail[/name] as I think it has the best flow. [name]Helen[/name] [name]Irene[/name] is sort of choppy.
