HELP! We cant find 'the' name for our second daughter!

We already have a toddler [name]Sienna[/name] [name]Hollie[/name] and have a boy’s name picked out and sorted but we cant seem to come up with and agree on ‘the right name’ if our baby is a girl…

Names I like:
[name]Keira[/name] (He doesnt like it)
[name]Lydia[/name] (Already taken)
[name]Adelaide[/name] (hes not convinced)
[name]Cassia[/name] (hes not convinced)

Names my hubby likes:
[name]Lily[/name] (already taken by a family member)
[name]Bella[/name] (we thought maybe more mn material)

Names we both like BUT we are just not convinced:

Any ideas are appreciated!

Note: Our last name is [name]Smith[/name] so we want a name that is slightly different. It cant start with S, R or E. Thanks!

First names:

I agree [name]Bella[/name] is better as a mn.


My dd’s name is [name]Madeline[/name], so I love it! [name]How[/name] are you pronouncing it? If you’re pronouncing it with the -line ending, at least where I live in the southern US, it’s really more unusual. Everyone I know has only ever heard it prnd with the -lyn ending, so we kind of throw them for a loop. But at the same time, it’s not weird or unheard of. A lot of ppl are familiar with the [name]Madeline[/name] books. [name]Madeline[/name] [name]Belle[/name] [name]Smith[/name] is cute! You could even do a double mn, like [name]Madeline[/name] [name]Keira[/name] [name]Belle[/name].

I replied once to this but it told me it had to be approved by a moderator?! So here goes again. I love [name]Madeline[/name], and it’s my dd’s name! Where we live in the southern US, the -line prn of [name]Madeline[/name] is really uncommon, so that might be a plus for you. Everyone around here prns it with the lyn ending. We kind of throw ppl for a loop with the line ending, but it’s not strange or completely unheard of. What about [name]Madeline[/name] [name]Kiera[/name] or [name]Madeline[/name] [name]Bella[/name]? [name]Madeline[/name] [name]Kiera[/name] [name]Belle[/name] would be cute if you were doing a double mn. Btw, we call her by the full name, [name]Madeline[/name], but to avoid the [name]Maddie[/name] nn, we occasionally call her [name]Mads[/name] or Madsie. :slight_smile:

Out of yours I love the combo [name]Madeline[/name] [name]Bella[/name] very pretty :slight_smile:


[name]Madeline[/name] for sure. It’s timeless.

[name]Cassidy[/name] and call her “[name]Cassi[/name]”

[name]Geneva[/name] [name]Smith[/name]
[name]Vienna[/name] [name]Smith[/name]
[name]Cecily[/name] [name]Smith[/name]
[name]Miranda[/name] [name]Smith[/name]
[name]Francesca[/name] [name]Smith[/name]
[name]Briley[/name] [name]Smith[/name]
[name]Briony[/name] [name]Smith[/name]
[name]Tatiana[/name] [name]Smith[/name]
[name]Danica[/name] [name]Smith[/name]

I ditto [name]Adeline[/name]! Not as popular as [name]Madeline[/name] and has the cute nn [name]Addey[/name]/[name]Adi[/name]/addi/addy

Names that are similar to:
[name]Adelaide[/name]: [name]Adele[/name], [name]Alice[/name], [name]Adeline[/name], [name]Alys[/name], [name]Elicia[/name], (All of these names are forms of [name]Adelaide[/name] & mean “noble one” according to
[name]Cassia[/name]: [name]Sage[/name], [name]Tamara[/name], [name]Saffron[/name] (other spices used as names, or names meaning “spice”); Cassara, [name]Cassidy[/name], [name]Cassandra[/name]
[name]Bella[/name]: [name]Bella[/name] would also make a really good nn. Ways to get [name]Bella[/name] as a nn: [name]Isabella[/name]/[name]Isabelle[/name], [name]Anabelle[/name].[name]Anabella[/name], [name]Mabel[/name], [name]Arabella[/name],
[name]Madeline[/name]: I really like this name. Names that are similar; Madelia, [name]Maia[/name], Maialen, [name]Malena[/name], Magalie, [name]Margaret[/name],

My favourite name on your list is [name]Adelaide[/name]. It’s at the top of my baby girl list too. :slight_smile: I would pair it with a virtue name:
[name]Adelaide[/name] [name]Joy[/name]
[name]Adelaide[/name] [name]Grace[/name]… or
[name]Adelaide[/name] [name]Bronwen[/name]
[name]Adelaide[/name] [name]Kathryn[/name]
