I’m absoloutely in love with the name [name]Loretta[/name]…but is it too country/middle aged,etc? I think a baby [name]Loretta[/name] would be adorable! :slight_smile:

What does everyone else think?

I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Loretta[/name]! I think it would make an adorable name for a baby, especially with the nn [name]Etta[/name] or [name]Ettie[/name]. When I was younger my favourite girls names were [name]Larissa[/name], [name]Lorraine[/name] and [name]Loretta[/name]:slight_smile: What middle names were you thinking of?

  • [name]Charlie[/name]

I like [name]Loretta[/name]!

Oh whoa. I was expecting to be the only one who liked [name]Loretta[/name]…

Lol, and [name]Charlie[/name], will you be my best friend? :wink: I totally agree with you - [name]Etta[/name] is one of my favorite nicknames ever and [name]Lorraine[/name] was my top girls name growing up! And as for middles, the only one I’ve even considered so far is [name]Jane[/name] (I just love the sound of ‘[name]Loretta[/name] [name]Jane[/name] [name]Mayer[/name]’). :slight_smile:

I love [name]Loretta[/name]. I don’t associate with country, or old necessarily, though i am in the UK.

My doctorate college teacher was called [name]Loretta[/name] and she was quite posh, obviously intelligent, so I have these positive connotations attached to this name.

Plus nn [name]Etta[/name] is gorgeous!!

It sounds like you are all set for your first girl! [name]Loretta[/name] [name]Jane[/name] [name]Mayer[/name] is so beautiful!

Thanks everyone! I wasn’t expecting such positive feedback, so I’m thrilled!

Haha sure I will! [name]Loretta[/name] [name]Jane[/name] is stunning:) Want any other ideas?

  • [name]Charlie[/name]

That’d be wonderful, [name]Charlie[/name]. [name]Even[/name] though I’m fairly set on [name]Loretta[/name] [name]Jane[/name] I’d [name]LOVE[/name] to hear what you (and anyone else) come up with!

Keep the opinions coming!

I won’t try to dissuade you from using [name]Loretta[/name] [name]Jane[/name] because I think it’s an exceedingly beautiful combo and if you love it, go with it! I will put forward a few suggestions though.

[name]Loretta[/name] [name]Frances[/name] - I loooove this.
[name]Loretta[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] - [name]Margaret[/name] is another name I’d love to use one day. Not only is it my grandmother’s name, but it’s my middle name, too.
[name]Loretta[/name] [name]Maude[/name] - Thumbs up.
[name]Loretta[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] - So pretty.

I love [name]Loretta[/name] [name]Jane[/name]!!! It’s gorgeous =)

my sister is [name]Loretta[/name], and my friend has a baby niece with the name to :slight_smile:

[name]Loretta[/name] [name]Jane[/name] [name]Mayer[/name] is to die for! Normally I wouldn’t really like [name]Loretta[/name] (bad assosciation… my congresswoman is named [name]Loretta[/name] [name]Sanchez[/name] and she’s pretty annoying. She’s been known to give foot jobs under the table and often gets drunk in public… but that’s neither here nor there!) The good association is [name]Loretta[/name] [name]Lynn[/name], and [name]Loretta[/name] [name]Jane[/name] reminds me of that, but better :-)… Great choice, especially with nn [name]Etta[/name]!

Thanks so much everybody! Like I said earlier, I wasn’t expecting anyone to like [name]Loretta[/name] so this is a pleasant surprise! :slight_smile:

Also, I DEFINITELY want more children (around 5 or 6)-- so what would you name a brother/sister to go with [name]Loretta[/name] [name]Jane[/name]?

To give you a sense of my ‘style’, here are some of my favorites:

[name]Josephine[/name], Magolia, [name]Helen[/name], (nn [name]Nell[/name]), [name]Edith[/name], [name]Florence[/name] (nn [name]Flora[/name], prob with the mn [name]Valentine[/name]), [name]Mabel[/name], [name]Cordelia[/name], [name]Paul[/name], [name]Leon[/name], [name]Vincent[/name], and [name]Beauregard[/name] (nn [name]Beau[/name] – my all-time favorite for a boy!).

Okay so with [name]Loretta[/name] [name]Jane[/name]…

  • [name]Charlie[/name]

I think [name]Loretta[/name] is a great name, too! (It’s really been growing on me lately!)

My memory hates me today, because I already forgot [name]Charlie[/name]'s wonderful suggestions…I’m sorry for repeats!

[name]Loretta[/name] and:



I probably repeated some of the names you already said you love, so I’m really sorry about that!

Take care! :slight_smile:
