Help with 2nd child's name...

So my husband and I are about to start trying for baby #2… We already have [name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Nathalie[/name] and are set on a boys name: [name]Dawson[/name] [name]Josiah[/name] [name]Martin[/name]… I’m having a few issues with a girls name though… My husband has only one demand, the name has to be 8 letters because [name]Vivienne[/name] has 8 letters… So far we like [name]Scarlett[/name] and [name]Juliette[/name]…

The other issue I’m having is the middle name is almost 100% decided I’m just putting the finishing touches on it and can’t decide to go with: [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name], LelaNinon or [name]Lela[/name]-[name]Ninon[/name]… Part of me likes the hyphen because it’s a bit of an homage to my french roots, but I don’t know if it looks right…

Please help… So I need 8 letter name suggestions and input on the middle name… Our last name is Woods, if that helps any… Thanks in advance!!

I like your two options, [name]Scarlett[/name] and [name]Juliette[/name] with [name]Vivienne[/name]. I would suggest:

[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
[name]Mirabelle[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
[name]Angelina[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]


And for the middle names, I prefer just [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name].

What happened to [name]Emmeline[/name]? I thought [name]Emmeline[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name] was just perfect! :slight_smile:

You have a lot of great ideas from everyone else–I would have suggested [name]Caroline[/name], [name]Isabelle[/name], etc. I’m kind of curious about the eight-letter thing, though–you wouldn’t use it for [name]Dawson[/name], right, so would you only continue the eight-letter thing for the girls?

What about:

[name]Arabella[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
Lucianna [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name] (I much prefer [name]Luciana[/name], but that’s only 7 letters…)
[name]Angelica[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
[name]Audriana[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name] (really like this, especially with [name]Vivienne[/name]'s name… I think something like [name]Poppy[/name] or [name]Lola[/name] would be adorable for a nn, and stylistically, [name]Vivienne[/name] and [name]Penelope[/name] work really well together)
[name]Annalise[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]/[name]Annelise[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
[name]Callista[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
[name]Katerina[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
[name]Felicity[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
[name]Georgina[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
[name]Florence[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name] (not really my thing, but I think [name]Flora[/name] is gorgeous, and I love [name]Vivi[/name] and [name]Flora[/name] together…)
[name]Madeline[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
[name]Rosemary[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name] (I think [name]Romy[/name], [name]Ro[/name], [name]Rosie[/name], [name]Mari[/name], etc. are all cute nns for this…)
[name]Victoria[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
[name]Valencia[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]
[name]Lilliana[/name] [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]

I would opt for just [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]… LelaNinon is too smooshed, and while [name]Lela[/name]-[name]Ninon[/name] is pretty cool, I’ve always thought it was a bit odd to have a hyphenated middle name… not sure why, exactly, haha!

Good luck!

Absolutely love [name]Juliette[/name] and [name]Scarlett[/name] with [name]Vivienne[/name]. I know you didn’t ask, but I am not a fan of [name]Dawson[/name]. It doesn’t match the elegant style of your girls names. In my area, there was a huge surge of this name when [name]Dawson[/name]'s Creek was on air. But, if you love it, that is all that matters.

I like [name]Caroline[/name]… And I think we’re going to go with [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name]… It looks the nicest… Thank you!!


I loved [name]Emmeline[/name]… But I have a small cousin [name]Emily[/name] and I think its going to get too popular… The 8 letter thing is all [name]David[/name]… LOL It would be just a girl thing, I don’t know why, I asked him and he said “because” LOL Of your list I like [name]Penelope[/name], [name]Callista[/name] and [name]Felicity[/name]…

I know what you’re saying about the middle name… It’s cool in theory, but it looks weird the more I look at it… [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name] it is… Thank you!!

Thank you… I like [name]Cordelia[/name]…

I know that [name]Dawson[/name] doesn’t really fit with the girl style, my husband loves it though… [name]Dawson[/name] means “son of [name]David[/name]” and he’s [name]David[/name]… So he likes the meaning more than anything else… I haven’t found a boys name that I like any better… I think of [name]Dawson[/name]'s Creek usually too, that was the first thing our families said when we told them our boys selection when I was pregnant the first time, “[name]Dawson[/name] as in creek?” But aside from listening to names he absolutely names he hasn’t had much input except for the last name… The middle name choice ([name]Josiah[/name] [name]Martin[/name]) are both men in my family of extreme importance… So we’ll see maybe I’ll find something I like better, but I’m sure it won’t be something my hubby likes more… If that makes sense??

Thank you…

Wow, I must say your daughter’s name is GORGEOUS. [name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Nathalie[/name], stunning! :slight_smile: I love [name]Scarlett[/name] and [name]Juliette[/name] with [name]Vivienne[/name], and I can’t even pick which one I like better because they both go so well. [name]Lela[/name] [name]Ninon[/name] looks the best as well imo.

I also have to agree that I am not a fan of [name]Dawson[/name] with the super feminine, refined, French names you have going on with your girl names. But if you think it’s the name, I can’t say anything otherwise. :slight_smile:
