I have been lurking since I found out I was pregnant, almost 9 months ago. After reading all you nameberryites’ opinions and advice, I’m now ready to come out of hiding, and honestly, I am a little desperate. I have had 9 months to contemplate what I’m going to name my daughter, and still no decision. I’m more nervous about this than anything else about her birth, including the pain of going through labor, or the anxiety of bringing my first baby girl home for the first time.
My husband is not very opinionated, and I think I can convince him to go with most any name I choose, although he does have veto power if he absolutely hates it.
I tend to like feminine names ending in a. Our last name is 2 syllables, and sounds like saw-wish (although the spelling is a little more tricky). My family is Cuban, so I’d ideally like something that can, at minimum, be easily pronounced in Spanish.
Names I like: [name]Stella[/name] (worried about popularity), [name]Lila[/name] (same), [name]Isla[/name] (worried about “eesla” pronunciation, especially with Latin background), [name]Natalia[/name], [name]Maia[/name], [name]Karina[/name]/[name]Carina[/name].
Family names I like: [name]Stella[/name], [name]Sabina[/name], [name]Trina[/name].
Middle name possibilities: [name]Jade[/name] (hubby loves), [name]Genevieve[/name], ???
I think what I’m looking for is a first name- middle name combo that grabs me, and I’ve yet to find it. [name]Feel[/name] free to use names on my list, or suggest others. Also, for middle names, I don’t like [name]Jane[/name], [name]Lynn[/name], [name]May[/name] (or [name]Kay[/name], [name]Fay[/name], etc.), or filler names in general.
Thanks in advance!
