So, I never liked my own name, and always considered changing it or adding a middle name…
I’ve finally come to the decision of adding one middle name and decided to go all out, be eccentric and add two.
[name]Adelaide[/name] has been my first choice forever, and it still is for many intricate and personal reasons but when it came to it I felt just adding [name]Adelaide[/name] was a bit dull since I’ve considered it as my middle name for a [name]LONG[/name] time.
I really can’t decide on what name to put after/before [name]Adelaide[/name]! I’ve had longlists and shortlists and have been crowdsourcing every possible (Norwegian) crowd, but I can’t seem to really settle for one.
Right now, my name is ”shild, a Norwegian name, prn. AWE-sill. My last name starts with AWE as well and also has two syllables.
I’m adding [name]Adelaide[/name] in there somewhere as a first or second middle depending on what flows best, and here is the current shortlist (remember that these names sound somewhat different in Norwegian) :
[name]Elnora[/name] (old Norwegian form of [name]Eleanor[/name] I find very charming)
[name]Marlena[/name] (not dated here)
[name]Oleanna[/name] (my dad is [name]Olav[/name], so this would honour him)
[name]Rosalia[/name] (it sounds best in Norwegian spelled like this)
on the longer list are also:
[name]Francisca[/name] (prn. fran-SISS-kah, [name]Francesca[/name] doesn’t work in Norwegian)
[name]Flora[/name] (but sounds like a Norwegian word for ‘barn’)
ANY comments, preferences and further suggestions are welcome, but I won’t use a name for me that I would like to give my own child, nor will all name suggestions be easily pronounced in Norwegian.
I realise this might be a tough one, but perhaps you’ll appreciate the challenge?
Thanks in advance!!!
(and just so you know, two middles is EXTREMELY rare in Norway, we stopped doing that when the 1800’s ended which is kind of why I like the idea of it…) ^^
