The only one I really don’t care for is [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Poet[/name_f], just because it doesn’t flow right to me. It sounds kind of choppy because they both have two syllables and the same stress pattern. That said, I really like [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f], [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f], and [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Seraphina[/name_f]. [name_m]Just[/name_m] out of curiosity, how would you pronounce [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] (English or [name_m]French[/name_m])?

I pronounce it [name_f]Gen[/name_f]-uh-veev. [name_f]My[/name_f] husband has never heard of this name, which I thought was strange. It’s still on the table though.

These are so pretty it’s a hard choice, so I’ll pick a top three.
1: [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f]
2: [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]
3: [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
4. [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Imogene[/name_f]
[name_m]How[/name_m] would you pronounce [name_f]Imogene[/name_f]? Im-o-[name_f]Jen[/name_f] or Im-o-[name_u]Jean[/name_u]?

Im-o-jean, mostly because that is how the only [name_f]Imogene[/name_f] I know pronounces it.

[name_f]My[/name_f] favorites are [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f], [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f], [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Imogene[/name_f], and [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]. I guess like the pp!

[name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Poet[/name_f] is too short to me, and I don’t think [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Ramona[/name_f] and [name_f]Lula[/name_f] [name_f]Seraphina[/name_f] flow as nicely as the 4 above.

Now, how to vote…

I love [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]! [name_m]How[/name_m] perfect! [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] is a close second :slight_smile:

[name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] AND [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] depending on which vibe you want. [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] grounds [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] and makes it more cute-classy rather than whimsical. [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] is definitely more playful and whimsical. Can’t get any more perfect than either one.
