I am due soon, and I have baby name fatigue! I have an international family, so I like names that can be pronounced in several languages easily. Here is my name list:
[name]Violetta[/name] - family name. everyone pronounces this differently. i say it the italian way, vyo-letta, as in adding “etta” to viola. i think vee-o-letta is nice too, although choppier. but when i say it, people come back with “oh, i love vie-o-letta!” which is not the name. will this end up being an annoying for her?
[name]Tallulah[/name] - i’ve adored this name for many years, and would call her [name]Lula[/name]. but where i live (brooklyn), i feel like this trendy & worry that in the future, she will have a flash in the pan sounding name. granted, i plan on moving, but don’t want to end up sounding dated. thoughts?
[name]Capucine[/name] - a french flower name (capu-seen). when i say this, no one has an preconceptions. but no one says it’s beautiful either… seems that it’s just foreign sounding. no one thinks “capuccino” when i say it, just when they read it.
[name]Priscilla[/name] - i think this is such a pretty name, but it gets such a love/hate reaction. very opposite, people are either thinking oh, it’s like a beautiful princess, or they think it is harsh and ugly sounding.
[name]Penelope[/name] - a lot of people really like this, and i added it b/c when i went to buy truffles, i was so taken with the “penelope” that i bought despite the flavor. haha*
[name]Helena[/name] - (heh-lay-na) everyone is very “meh” on this one, but i kind of like it! is it boring?
the last name is Eim
open to suggestions as well!!
