Jean vs Raine

Not expecting, just collecting. Our last name is [name_u]Harlow[/name_u], and we’re collecting names in case we have a baby girl one day.

So, what d’ya think? Comment some middle names down there too, if you don’t mind!

TIA

I really like the sweet, classic [name_u]Jean[/name_u]. [name_f]Raine[/name_f] is pretty too, it used to be a favourite of mine. So hard to decide! I think I slightly prefer [name_u]Jean[/name_u] :slight_smile:

Raine is a favourite of mine, middles:
[name_f]Raine[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Raine[/name_f] [name_f]Lilia[/name_f]
[name_f]Raine[/name_f] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f]
[name_f]Raine[/name_f] [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f]
[name_f]Raine[/name_f] [name_f]Amelie[/name_f]
[name_f]Raine[/name_f] [name_f]Diana[/name_f]
[name_f]Raine[/name_f] [name_f]Saskia[/name_f]
[name_f]Raine[/name_f] [name_f]Nicolette[/name_f]

Both names are beautiful, and style wise I would say they are completely different. [name_u]Jean[/name_u] is more vintage classic and [name_f]Raine[/name_f] more “modern earthy boho”.

While I adore [name_f]Raine[/name_f] ([name_f]Rayna[/name_f]) was on my list , I am crushing on [name_u]Jean[/name_u]! Both names are very wearable and seem to go with a few middle names

I personally would pair [name_f]Raine[/name_f] with a classic name and give [name_u]Jean[/name_u] an unexpected middle !
[name_f]Raine[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Raine[/name_f] [name_f]Catherine[/name_f]
[name_f]Raine[/name_f] [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f]
[name_f]Raine[/name_f] [name_u]Madison[/name_u]
[name_f]Raine[/name_f] [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u]

Jean [name_u]Garnet[/name_u]
[name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_f]Azalea[/name_f]
[name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_u]Quin[/name_u]
[name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_f]Clemency[/name_f]
[name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_f]Verity[/name_f]

Both sounds awesome with [name_u]Harlow[/name_u], I like [name_f]Raine[/name_f] a bit more.

Jean [name_u]Harlow[/name_u] is so charming and lovely!

Jean [name_u]Harlow[/name_u]… that would be like naming your daughter [name_f]Katharine[/name_f] Hepburn or [name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_u]Mirren[/name_u].

I far prefer [name_u]Jean[/name_u] as a name, but I’ll go with [name_u]Rain[/name_u](e) on this one.

I prefer [name_u]Jean[/name_u] to [name_f]Raine[/name_f]. [name_u]Jean[/name_u] is so sweet and vintage. I love to see other people loving it! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

[name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_u]Harlow[/name_u]

Yeah, I am kind of worried about that, but I really like the name. Besides, it’s the middle name of our favorite [name_u]Harry[/name_u] [name_m]Potter[/name_m] character, so we’re seriously considering it!

Do you like smoosh names? Jeanlouise or something like that?

I love [name_u]Rain[/name_u], but that’s the only spelling I’m partial to. Not usually crazy about [name_u]Jean[/name_u], but [name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_u]Harlow[/name_u] is just :heart_eyes:

Rain is stunning for me. I love the nickname [name_f]Rainie[/name_f].

Jean [name_u]Harlow[/name_u] sounds so very Hollywood!

I like [name_u]Jean[/name_u] best here and would choose it over [name_f]Raine[/name_f], but the [name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_u]Harlow[/name_u] thing gives me pause. Because of that alone I might lean into [name_f]Raine[/name_f] even though I’m not a big fan.

I prefer [name_u]Rain[/name_u] to [name_f]Raine[/name_f], and would definitely choose [name_u]Rain[/name_u] over [name_u]Jean[/name_u].

[name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_u]Harlow[/name_u] would be amazing!
[name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
[name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_f]Marigold[/name_f]
[name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_f]Odette[/name_f]
[name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f]
[name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_f]Celeste[/name_f]
[name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_u]Sparrow[/name_u]
[name_u]Jean[/name_u] [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f]

Jean [name_u]Harlow[/name_u] is a wonderful combination!
