My First Little Baby Has Me All Confused

[name]Hi[/name], I’m on here. I’m expecting a little girl on February 20 and me and my husband are still stuck between names for our little princess. Either:


Tell me if you like them, hate them. Her middle name is going to be [name]Day[/name] in memory of her Auntie [name]Daelyn[/name] that passed away last [name]June[/name]. Also tell me if you think they should be spelt differently. Me and my husband thank you so much in advance :slight_smile:

Okay well first of all some spelling changes:

Brightyn --> [name]Brighton[/name]
Kerighnton -->Kerrington (is that what it’s supposed to be?)
Masyn --> [name]Mason[/name]

Since her middle name will be [name]Day[/name] I think it’s best to avoid a noun for her first name otherwise it could create confusion, or a short sentence. So that eliminates [name]Story[/name], [name]Haven[/name] and [name]Brighton[/name] because it will sound like [name]Bright[/name]'n up [name]Day[/name]. Also I think [name]Harley[/name] [name]Day[/name] sounds a bit too rhyme-y and [name]Harlow[/name] [name]Day[/name] sounds very glamour girl-ish.

That leaves us with:

[name]Ava[/name] [name]Day[/name] (actually this sounds like 'ave a day which isn’t so good…)
[name]Shiloh[/name] [name]Day[/name]
Kerrington [name]Day[/name]
[name]Mason[/name] [name]Day[/name]

[name]Mason[/name] is too masculine for a girl, in my opinion and Kerrington sounds quite tryndee with the whole last name thing and is quite over powering (just my opinion).

I think I have a winner! [name]Shiloh[/name] [name]Day[/name]. It sounds so pretty and creative. If you’re not set on these names some suggestions of ones you might like that go with [name]Day[/name]:

[name]Harper[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Morgan[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Alexis[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Emerson[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Reagan[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Day[/name]

[name]Hope[/name] this helped:) Good [name]Luck[/name]!

I agree with the above poster about spelling and [name]Shiloh[/name] [name]Day[/name] being a good option! That is my favorite as well. I also like [name]Harlow[/name] [name]Day[/name], though.

I also would like:

[name]Siri[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Finley[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Audrey[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Elliot[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Maya[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Marlow[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Elisa[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Eva[/name] [name]Day[/name]

I second charliehotsox

Brightyn - much too trendy for me, and [name]Brighton[/name] wouldn’t be the first place that I would name my child after, either …
Kerighnton - a little trendy for me, I’m afraid.
[name]Harlow[/name] - quite nice, but a strong celebrity connection.
[name]Haven[/name] - too obviously wordy for my taste.
[name]Harley[/name] - [name]Street[/name]. That’s probably just an English association, though.
[name]Ava[/name] - very popular, but still very pretty.
[name]Story[/name] - [name]Story[/name] [name]Day[/name] is very nursery school reading time … but I do love [name]Astoria[/name] nn [name]Story[/name].
[name]Shiloh[/name] - very pretty! The Brangelina connection is strong, but it is still a lovely name.
Masyn - even when spelled [name]Mason[/name], this is too masculine for a girl, in my opinion.

My vote is for [name]Ava[/name] [name]Day[/name], with [name]Shiloh[/name] [name]Day[/name] in second place.

Other names that you may like :
[name]Aislinn[/name] (ash-linn)
[name]Lelia[/name] (lee-lee-a)
[name]Pepper[/name] (a cute nn for [name]Penelope[/name], perhaps?)

The following names have connections to [name]Heaven[/name] or the heavens/sky (reminded me of [name]Haven[/name]) :

Good luck!

Me too my favourite is [name]Harlow[/name].

I like [name]Shiloh[/name] [name]Day[/name] and [name]Harlow[/name] [name]Day[/name], also.

[name]Shiloh[/name] [name]Day[/name] for me.

[name]Aveline[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Avis[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Audrey[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Audra[/name] [name]Day[/name]

Brightyn: I’m not personally a fan of creative spellings, but that’s just me. :slight_smile: [name]Brighton[/name] [name]Day[/name] reminds me of “brighten up my day,” so I’d personally go with another choice.

Kerighnton: I’m not sure what this names is meant to be, but I’m guessing it’s supposed to be Kerrington, another legitimate spelling of which is Carrington. (I’d personally avoid the spelling you’ve listed, because your daughter will have to constantly pronounce it and spell it for people. Also, I can’t see the spelling on a professional adult, and would hate the spelling to be used against her when she’s applying for a job.)

[name]Harlow[/name]: I think that [name]Harlow[/name] [name]Day[/name] works well…

[name]Haven[/name]: Because [name]Haven[/name]'s first syllable rhymes with [name]Day[/name], I think [name]Harlow[/name] has a better flow…

[name]Harley[/name]: I only think of motorcycles with [name]Harley[/name].

[name]Ava[/name]: Because the long A sounds in both [name]Ava[/name] and [name]Day[/name]
rhyme, I think some of the others flow better.

[name]Story[/name]: Like Twinkle said, I think of [name]Story[/name] [name]Day[/name] in nursery school.

[name]Shiloh[/name]: I think [name]Shiloh[/name] [name]Day[/name] has a great flow (like [name]Harlow[/name] [name]Day[/name])…

Masyn: See [name]Brighton[/name]. [name]Even[/name] with the y, it’s still pronounced [name]Mason[/name].

More modern names that flow with [name]Day[/name]:

[name]Connelly[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Emery[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Ellery[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Flannery[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name] [name]Day[/name] (not the best flow…)
[name]Marlo[/name]/[name]Marlow[/name] [name]Day[/name] (Close in sound to [name]Harlow[/name] and [name]Shiloh[/name], but less popular/trendy)
[name]Romilly[/name] [name]Day[/name] (nn [name]Romy[/name])

[name]Non[/name]-unisex names (like [name]Ava[/name]) you may like:

[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Day[/name] (nn [name]Rory[/name], which gives you the unisex feel you like)
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Day[/name]

[name]Evelina[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Day[/name]
[name]Olivia[/name] [name]Day[/name] (very popular, like [name]Ava[/name], though)
[name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Day[/name] (Plus, [name]Vivienne[/name] means “life,” which could also honor the life of the baby’s aunt.)
[name]Veronica[/name] [name]Day[/name]

I’m really sorry about the baby’s aunt passing away, and I think it’s lovely that you’re naming your little girl after her.

Good luck, [name]Banana[/name] Muffin! :slight_smile:

Of all the names on your list, I like [name]Ava[/name] and [name]Shiloh[/name] the most. But, like [name]Charlie[/name], I also think [name]Ava[/name] [name]Day[/name] sounds odd.

[name]Love[/name] Charlies’ suggestions of [name]Harper[/name], [name]Reagan[/name], and [name]Rowan[/name]. I also suggest:


[name]Story[/name] [name]Day[/name] sounds like a special day in first school where the kids get to write and read stories. It doesn’t sound like a name.

If you go with [name]Harlow[/name] then you can use [name]Harley[/name] as a nickname.

Of your choices I think
[name]Shiloh[/name] [name]Day[/name] & [name]Harlow[/name] [name]Day[/name]
work best

Brightyn–spelled as [name]Brighton[/name], this name gets two thumbs up.
Kerighnton–I highly recommend Carrington or at least Kerrington. This name is okay, but not the best on your list.
[name]Harlow[/name]–I love the sound of this name, although a certain famous [name]Harlow[/name] baby might put you off. Mayhap the more distinct [name]Winslow[/name]?
[name]Haven[/name]–A big improvement on [name]Heaven[/name], this name is nice enough. You could always use the nn [name]Ava[/name] with it. [name]Harbor[/name] is a more unique alternative that I’ve warmed up to.
[name]Harley[/name]–This is dooming the baby to motorcycles and tattoos. A yucky name.
[name]Ava[/name]–[name]Uber[/name]-popular. See [name]Haven[/name]. (Also, consider [name]Adelaide[/name] nn [name]Ada[/name]).
[name]Story[/name]–This and [name]Fable[/name] are some of my favorite word names.
[name]Shiloh[/name]–No. Brangelina has outed this.
Masyn–Never as this spelling. [name]Mason[/name] is okay, but really? You have better.

More ideas:
[name]Lennox[/name]–My favorite surname-turned-firstname. I think this is strong enough for a girl, but the X lends it sass, and it overall sounds very upperclass.
Townsend–Another one I’m fond of. Could be nn’d [name]Tessa[/name], Tossie, Towney, etc.
[name]Harbin[/name]/[name]Harlem[/name]/[name]Harper[/name]/[name]Harrington[/name]/[name]Harte[/name]/[name]Hartley[/name]/[name]Harvard[/name]/[name]Harvey[/name]/ Hardwick–just a few more possible Har names, since you seem to favor them.
[name]Willoughby[/name] (nn [name]Willa[/name])–I just love this.
& other surnames…Appleton, [name]Beckham[/name], Bonney, Breckenridge, [name]Bristol[/name], [name]Bristow[/name], [name]Tucker[/name], [name]Carlyle[/name], [name]Anderson[/name], [name]Dexter[/name] (check the Behindthename surnames–this originally was only for girls!), Elliston, [name]Ellsworth[/name], [name]Endicott[/name], [name]Easton[/name], [name]Fairfax[/name], [name]Foster[/name], [name]Gardener[/name], [name]Granger[/name], Hathaway, Hepburn, [name]Cabot[/name], Kellogg, [name]Kirby[/name], [name]Laurence[/name], [name]Lockwood[/name], [name]Marsden[/name], [name]Merritt[/name], [name]Miller[/name], [name]Murray[/name], [name]Parish[/name], Pemberton/Pemberly, [name]Prescott[/name], [name]Quigley[/name], [name]Quincy[/name], [name]Reeve[/name], [name]Ridley[/name], [name]Romilly[/name], [name]Roscoe[/name], [name]Smith[/name]/[name]Smythe[/name], [name]Spencer[/name], [name]Sumner[/name], [name]Sutton[/name], [name]Tatum[/name] nn [name]Tate[/name], [name]Tennison[/name], [name]Turner[/name], Varley, Wescott, [name]Whitaker[/name], Wickham, [name]Winthrop[/name].
