I have boys names but girls names are tough for me

I posted in other threads about my son being Solomon Ryker

but I am looking for girls names that “go with” Solomon

I love the name Merit or Marit but in the US that is a cigarette brand…do you think that matters?

I would call her Meri or Mary for a nn…but i am open to anything

so I like names like that for girls…cute, not too feminine, have a nn, and have a good meaning…

thoughts? I would love more suggestions…you guys are awesome I know you can help me

(our last name starts with S and ends in burg…I also don’t mind alliteration)

Merit is a fine name. Or [name]Barrett[/name] too to avoid any cigarette issues. Although, I don’t think it’s an issue.

Other possibilities:
[name]Charity[/name] ( other virtue names)

I love [name]Merritt[/name] as a first name! (though spelled this way - maybe this will take away the association of the cigarette brand as well). I think it goes great with [name]Soloman[/name]. You may also like:

[name]Mavis[/name] (love this for you! Nicknames [name]Mae[/name]/[name]May[/name], [name]Maeve[/name]/[name]Mave[/name], Mavi, Mav)

xo [name]Viv[/name]

Merit is a really nice name…for a boy. I like more feminine names for a girl. If you like [name]Meri[/name], then use that. I love [name]Mary[/name] and think that would be a perfect match for [name]Solomon[/name].

oh I like the spelling of [name]Merritt[/name] double r and double t like that a lot.

I know Merit sounds boy-ish (sort of) but I like boy sounding names…with a girly nickname…I had also considered



and [name]Kyle[/name] for girls…

so I don’t mind it sounding a little masculine…my name is kelly (and although very popular for girls I was named after my father)

thank you for all the great suggestions…I will take as many suggestions as you can think of, considering my husband isnt as excited about my names as I am

[name]Davy[/name] is interesting. You might consider the spelling Daveigh. There is a model/actor/singer named Daveigh [name]Chase[/name] so i always find that spelling a little more feminine. You may also like [name]Davis[/name] (and i must again suggest [name]Mavis[/name] - i love this name!). Other unisex or boyish sounding names for girls you might like are:
[name]Avery[/name] (very similar to [name]Davy[/name] & [name]Navy[/name] - i really love [name]Avery[/name] for you!)
[name]Carlisle[/name] (nn [name]Carly[/name] is super cute!)

xo [name]Viv[/name]

I see [name]Merritt[/name] as a surname, but I guess using surnames as first names is getting popular. I actually think its cute, especially with the nickname [name]Meri[/name]. The cigarette brand thing isn’t an issue to me. Most people probably wouldn’t even notice. If you were using the name marlboro, then I could see it being a problem.
I love the suggestions of [name]Mavis[/name] and [name]Carlyle[/name]! Also, I think [name]Miller[/name] would be really cute.

[name]Solomon[/name] is my all time favourite name right now. Has been for a little while. I love it!

[name]Lucille[/name] - I think this sounds like a great sib set. [name]Lucille[/name] is such a classic and elegant name with good NN’s.

[name]Solomon[/name] is very cool. Here’s some girl names I think go well with it along with nicknames since you said that was something you wanted:

[name]Gabrielle[/name] – my preferred nn [name]Ella[/name] – [name]Gabby[/name], [name]Elle[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], Gabry
[name]Abigail[/name] – my preferred nn [name]Gail[/name] – [name]Abby[/name], [name]Gail[/name]
[name]Arielle[/name] (are-ee-ell) – my preferred nn [name]Ari[/name] – [name]Ari[/name], [name]Aria[/name], [name]Elle[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Ellie[/name]
[name]Simone[/name] – [name]Sim[/name]
[name]Eliana[/name] – My preferred nn [name]Ana[/name] (ah-nuh) – [name]Elle[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], [name]Lia[/name], [name]Ana[/name]
[name]Evangeline[/name] – my preferred nn [name]Evie[/name] – [name]Eve[/name], [name]Eva[/name], [name]Evie[/name], [name]Angel[/name]
[name]Elise[/name] – [name]Elle[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], [name]Lise[/name] (lees)
[name]Penelope[/name] – my preferred nn [name]Nell[/name] – [name]Penny[/name], [name]Nell[/name], [name]Nelly[/name], [name]Poppy[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] – my preferred nn [name]Evie[/name] – [name]Gen[/name], [name]Genny[/name], [name]Eve[/name], [name]Eva[/name], [name]Evie[/name], Vieve (veev), Neeve, [name]Neeva[/name]
[name]Isadora[/name] – my preferred nn [name]Izzy[/name] – [name]Izzy[/name], [name]Isa[/name], [name]Dora[/name], [name]Dorrie[/name]
[name]Delilah[/name] – my preferred nn [name]Lilah[/name] – [name]Delly[/name], [name]Dell[/name], [name]Lil[/name], [name]Lilah[/name]

thanks you guys. I really love [name]Carly[/name] too only [name]Carlisle[/name] is a town in my city and one of my good friends lives there…too close…

also I love [name]Mavis[/name] but my best friends mom is named [name]Maeve[/name]…doesn’t that sort of sound like a name sake?

I love [name]Penelope[/name] thanks for reminding me its one of my favorites


If Merit is not the right fit maybe [name]Meredith[/name]?

These match your son’s name, and I <3 merit!

Mommy to 4 beautiful lil girlies!

I love names that have nick names…I call my son [name]Solomon[/name], Solo…(like as in one)

[name]Jemima[/name] reminds me of the syrup or the deep south
[name]Noah[/name]- this is great because my sisters daughter is named [name]Noa[/name]…
[name]Paloma[/name]- wow never really thought about this…doesn’t it sort of sound like Polenta?

I do like the thought of them all meaning the same thing…that is cool. and I am big into meanings…

I haven’t heard of [name]Jerusha[/name]…that’s very different!

[name]Carlisle[/name] is so great! Merit, too (either spelling).
[name]Charlotta[/name] ([name]Charlie[/name])

Good luck


A few more for you! :slight_smile:

I like Merit…I like the spelling [name]Merritt[/name] better, but I like it. If the connection to cigarette company bothers you [name]Maren[/name] might be another good option.

THANK YOU!!! I am now stuck in between
