We are about going crazy here! DD is [name]Isla[/name] [name]Hope[/name], nearly a year old and we are pg with #2 due in [name]August[/name]. If we have a boy (which I doubt) he will be [name]Grant[/name] [name]William[/name]. We have having such a hard time with girl’s names though!!
We thought [name]Brynn[/name] for a while, then decided it was too. . .harsh? There’s no nn for it (not that it needs a nn, but I feel like I would want something cutesy/pet name to call her and all I could come up with is [name]Brynn[/name]-y and that’s dumb)
So I sort of liked [name]Bree[/name], but not as a full name, just as a nn. So we talked about [name]Aubrey[/name], nn [name]Bree[/name]. Well. . .we used to like [name]Audrey[/name] but ruled it out b/c its too popular. Come to find out [name]Aubrey[/name] is actually MORE popular than [name]Audrey[/name], and if you add the 2 names popularity together, there are going to be a crapload of girls named [name]Audrey[/name]/[name]Aubrey[/name].
A friend suggested [name]Abree[/name] and I kind of like it but dh says no way.
Another friend suggested [name]Soleil[/name] and several other friends enthusiastically agreed, but I just can’t pronounce it easily (Sole-A) it doesn’t roll off the tongue. Also, our named starts with Sh, so we had kind of ruled out S names so it doesn’t sound like you have a lisp when you say it.
The only name dh & I both like right now that isn’t in the top 50 is [name]Hazel[/name] (which is actually #60 in [name]Vermont[/name], where I live, but in the 300s in the rest of the country). We both like it, but I’m not, like, head over heels about it like I am with [name]Isla[/name] and [name]Grant[/name].
Other names I like that dh has ruled out:
Names he likes that I don’t:
um I forget the others! lol shows how much I pay attention to his suggestions:)
Can you help??? My ideal, perfect name would be:
- feminine, but not frilly
- not starting with the letter S
- not in the top 50, really don’t even want top 100 or even 200 but beggars can’t be choosers!
- different, but not wacky. Possibly a bit exotic or foreign since [name]Isla[/name] is a Scottish name.
- preferably not 2 syllables and ending with A - this isn’t a absolute rule, but most names in that description sound too much like [name]Isla[/name]
wow I guess I wrote a novel! [name]Do[/name] your magic, please??
