The basics: [name]Hi[/name], I’m [name]Jay[/name], and my partner and I are expecting our fourth child in [name]January[/name]! We’re keeping the baby’s gender a surprise, but secretly hoping for another little girl.
The problem: My partner and I have fallen absolutely in love with the name [name]Romy[/name] for a girl, but never felt bold enough ourselves to use it on its own. But we keep coming back to it. Is it too nickname-y? He thinks so; he won’t use it unless we come up with a more “solid” name to fall back on. I could go either way.
Potential solution: I love the name [name]Ramona[/name]. I admit it. Actually, though, it was my oldest daughter who suggested it – we took the kids to see [name]Ramona[/name] and Beezus, lol. It got us all thinking about it, and I think my partner’s warming up to it. It sounds alright with our last name (sounds like Johansson but spelled differently). But…can we get [name]Romy[/name] out of it? What do you think? If not, what would you suggest? Is the name [name]Ramona[/name] even worth considering, or will people always think of “The Pest?”
Other than that, we were also thinking about making her first three initials ROM and going from there – but not too many R names stand out to us. I’d really appreciate any advice here.
Our three children are [name]Camille[/name] [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Rose[/name] ([name]Milly[/name]/[name]Mia[/name], 7), [name]Zachary[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] [name]Hart[/name] ([name]Zach[/name], 5) and [name]Laura[/name] [name]Sylvie[/name] [name]Alexis[/name] (Lo, 3), just to give you an idea of some of the names we go for.
Sorry to make this so long, it’s just been on my mind all day and my partner doesn’t care nearly as much as I do about our children’s names, so I have no one to bounce my ideas off of!
