ljandrl, thanks for your help! So you like [name]Griffin[/name] too?! Yes, we love it, and love the nn [name]Griff[/name].
At the moment our top choice that we agree on for a girl would probably be [name]Coralie[/name]. [name]Just[/name] not totally sure about it. I do love all the nn options: [name]Cora[/name], [name]Cori[/name], [name]Coral[/name], [name]Lee[/name]/[name]Leigh[/name]…
You had some great suggestions! Here’s the one I like:
[name]Caroline[/name] (I love it but my hubby isn’t crazy about it, except maybe as a potential middle name)
[name]Charlotte[/name] (could honor a family name - [name]Lottie[/name], but my hubby doesn’t like)
[name]Cora[/name] (hubby much prefers [name]Coralie[/name], and I’m fine with that because I can still use [name]Cora[/name] as a nn)
[name]Cara[/name] (I’ve always thought this is a cute name, just think I’d like something a little more unusual?)
[name]Melina[/name] (hmm, kinda cute)
[name]Helena[/name] (I like the he-[name]LAY[/name]-na pronunciation, but…)
[name]Elodie[/name] (kinda cute, but hubby prefers [name]Melodie[/name] (not sure how to spell it), which I don’t care for)
[name]Eliana[/name] (Sooo pretty, but might be just a little too much, I don’t know… still one to consider)
[name]Serena[/name] (I think this could be a perfect compromise with hubby’s [name]Sara[/name], but he’s not sold - yet)
[name]Joy[/name] (this is on our list for a middle name)
[name]Celina[/name] (don’t think I’ve ever heard this one, but it’s really pretty)
So, favorites from your list, and ones we’d be most likely to agree on, would probably be: [name]Eliana[/name], [name]Serena[/name], [name]Melina[/name], [name]Cara[/name] (maybe), [name]Joy[/name] (as a middle) and [name]Caroline[/name] (as a middle).
Thanks so much for all your suggestions!
