Help! Anyone? Lemon?

My husband and I are expecting our second, a girl. Our son is named [name]Caspian[/name], and our last name is one syllable and rhymes with “no”. We both like unusual names, but not made-up names. Literary or mythology names are great, as are nature and geography names (no American cities though- that’s overdone). We’ve come up with several names, but none of them are perfect. I need some suggestions, please- my brain is turning to mush :slight_smile:

Good but not perfect:

I suggested, but husband vetoed:

Well, I’m not [name]Lemon[/name] but I may be able to help :slight_smile: [name]Caspian[/name] is terrific and from your list I really like [name]Odelia[/name]! Some suggestions…


Any you like?

  • [name]Charlie[/name]

[name]Caspian[/name] is a phenominal name!

With a the idea of “[name]Caspian[/name] Sea” other bodies of waters that might work:

Corinthia (but maybe not since [name]Galilea[/name] didn’t fly!)
[name]Nila[/name] ([name]Nile[/name])

and [name]Amalfi[/name] coast:)

Alternatives to the names you are interested in but not perfect:

[name]Odelia[/name] - [name]Adelia[/name], [name]Olympia[/name], [name]Isaura[/name], [name]Isla[/name], [name]Isadora[/name], [name]Easter[/name], [name]Eliora[/name], [name]Elodie[/name]
[name]Guinevere[/name] - [name]Isolde[/name], [name]Ariadne[/name] (used in Inception, so not too unfamiliar), [name]Desdemona[/name] ([name]Dessie[/name] would be a cute nn)
Tigerlily - [name]Bryony[/name], [name]Amaryllis[/name], [name]Acacia[/name], [name]Calantha[/name], Larkspur, (with the fabulous nn [name]Lark[/name]), [name]Lilac[/name], [name]Lotus[/name], [name]Marigold[/name],
[name]Octavia[/name] - [name]Augusta[/name], [name]Josephine[/name], [name]Clementine[/name], [name]Helena[/name], [name]Antonia[/name] (if prononunced An-to-ni-a)

I may have repeats from pps. Sorry! [name]Caspian[/name] and:

[name]Artemis[/name]–I love the idea of a little girl nn [name]Artie[/name]


I love the name [name]Caspian[/name].

You’ve gotten a lot of great suggestions, but I want to suggest [name]Eulalie[/name]. It’s the name of a poem by [name]Edgar[/name] [name]Allan[/name] [name]Poe[/name].

I want to second the suggestions of others for [name]Xanthe[/name], [name]Rhiannon[/name], and [name]Isolde[/name]. They go great with your son’s name!

Also, since those names weren’t the perfect ones, what do you think of:

[name]Odelia[/name] - [name]Ophelia[/name]? [name]Fidelia[/name]?
[name]Guinevere[/name] - [name]Giovanna[/name], [name]Genevieve[/name]?
Tigerlily - sorry, this one is too out there for me.
[name]Octavia[/name] - [name]Antonia[/name]? I think someone else suggested this too.

What great lists/suggestions! I also wanted to add the name [name]Waverly[/name].

What about [name]Freya[/name]? She was a Norse goddess, and I find this name beautiful. :slight_smile:

We were actually going to name [name]Caspian[/name] “[name]Freya[/name]” if he was a girl! But somehow it doesn’t seem right this time…Maybe we’ll come around again to it.

[name]Just[/name] a few ideas, I know some are repeats


I noticed you like “ia” endings. [name]How[/name] about [name]Laelia[/name]/[name]Lalia[/name], [name]Dahlia[/name]/[name]Dalia[/name] or [name]Ophelia[/name]?

Or maybe
