I am not expecting but hopefully it won”t be so very long! I am already obsessing over names, which is probably good because I know I”ll need lots of time to ”marinate” on a name before deciding.
Our style is hard to describe. We go for the uncommon but familiar side of things and like names that sound fresh, breezy, and possibly nature-y. We tend to gravitate toward Irish and Scottish names (though the Scottish connection has more meaning as husband”s dad is from there,) especially for boys. Last name is [name]Penny[/name], so I”d like to avoid names ending in -ee sound (as well as the names [name]Owen[/name], [name]Iona[/name], [name]Lane[/name]”)
We”ll be using family names for MNs, so I won”t bring those to the party just yet”
[name]Lyla[/name] (love, but is it becoming trendy? I think this spelling makes the pron more obvious)
[name]Ailsa[/name] (love the [name]Scotland[/name] connection)
[name]Oran[/name] (dh absolutely loves this, which is making me love it)
[name]Ronan[/name] (does this sound trendy?)
[name]Malcolm[/name] (not sure if it goes w/ the others, but we both like it)
[name]Alistair[/name] (like the connection to dh”s mn, [name]Alexander[/name])
[name]Sander[/name] (also from [name]Alexander[/name]; like this so much more than [name]Xander[/name], it sounds ”earthier” to me)
If you have a feel for our style, do you have any suggestions to add to our list? Thanks in advance!!!
