My Girls' List. Opinions?

My girl’s list! What do you think?
The formula for naming I used was a first name I liked a lot, and two middles, one honoring a favorite literary character (you know those stories that you read once, and they just get stuck in your head, and years and years later you can still recall little details? I used names from those kinds of stories, lol), and the other honoring someone important to me.

The honoring names are bold, and the literary names are italics. The books are in paratheneses.
Noemí [name]Maureen[/name] [name]Adelina[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Meryl[/name]
([name]Adelina[/name] and [name]Meryl[/name] were sisters in my favorite book growing up, The Two Princesses of Bamarre, and I think it would be so cute to read them that story, and for them to have that connection.)
[name]Indigo[/name] [name]Zinnia[/name] [name]Grace[/name] nn [name]Indie[/name] (Chasing Redbird)
[name]Saffron[/name] [name]Minerva[/name] [name]Sarah[/name] nn Saffie ([name]Harry[/name] [name]Potter[/name], of course)
[name]Aviva[/name] [name]Lucie[/name] [name]Kay[/name] nn [name]Viva[/name] (A Tale of Two Cities)
[name]Artemis[/name] [name]Ella[/name] [name]May[/name] nn [name]Artie[/name] ([name]Bridge[/name] to Teribithia)
[name]Oceana[/name] [name]Megan[/name] Nyamh /[name]Ebba[/name] nn [name]Ana[/name] ([name]East[/name]) I’m leaning towards [name]Ebba[/name], because that’s the way that they spell [name]Niamh[/name] in the book, and I don’t want it to be mispelled to everyone else.
[name]Athena[/name] [name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Nicole[/name] nn Thena, if any (The Catcher in the [name]Rye[/name])
[name]Aura[/name] [name]Violet[/name] [name]Carrie[/name] (The Series of Unfortunate Events)
[name]Tierra[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] ([name]Tia[/name]) (The Series of Unfortunate Events
[name]Willow[/name] [name]Teresa[/name] [name]Janet[/name] (Inkheart series)

I love that idea! Personally, I like The Series of Unfortunate Events connection best. It’s sounds really nice!

Lots of thought has been put in there! Well done.

Not normally my style but [name]Indigo[/name] [name]Zinnia[/name] [name]Grace[/name] nn [name]Indie[/name] really stood out to me. It is very spunky! :slight_smile:

I liked [name]Aura[/name] [name]Violet[/name] -but prefer it as [name]Aura[/name] [name]Violet[/name] [name]Kay[/name]


I don’t really like double middle names, and names like [name]Saffron[/name] and [name]Oceana[/name] are really not my style at all - however, I love the amount of thought and effort you’ve put into your combinations and the fact that each one has a very special meaning to you! I would say that my favorite is [name]Willow[/name] [name]Teresa[/name] [name]Janet[/name]. A lot of people on here will call [name]Teresa[/name] and [name]Janet[/name] “dated”, but today’s “dated” is really just tomorrow’s “vintage”, and I think both names are solid and spunky, a perfect balance to the airy [name]Willow[/name]. Well done there!!

Wow, that does flow really well! I’ll have to consider changing that one (:

Thank you! I definitely agree with you there.

Thank you! I definitely agree with you on [name]Janet[/name] and [name]Teresa[/name]

I think most of them are lovely. These are my favorites:

Noemí [name]Maureen[/name] [name]Adelina[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Meryl[/name]
[name]Indigo[/name] [name]Zinnia[/name] [name]Grace[/name] nn [name]Indie[/name]-[name]Love[/name] this!
[name]Saffron[/name] [name]Minerva[/name] [name]Sarah[/name] nn Saffie
[name]Aviva[/name] [name]Lucie[/name] [name]Kay[/name] nn [name]Viva[/name]
[name]Artemis[/name] [name]Ella[/name] [name]May[/name] nn [name]Artie[/name]
[name]Oceana[/name] [name]Megan[/name] Nyamh
[name]Athena[/name] [name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Nicole[/name] nn Thena
[name]Aura[/name] [name]Violet[/name] [name]Carrie[/name]
[name]Willow[/name] [name]Teresa[/name] [name]Janet[/name]

I also love the way you picked these names. I think [name]Adelina[/name], [name]Minerva[/name], [name]Aviva[/name], [name]Athena[/name], [name]Oceana[/name], [name]Evelyn[/name], [name]Beatrice[/name] and [name]Saffron[/name] are true gems and deserve to be in the first spot. These are my favorites:
[name]Indigo[/name] [name]Zinnia[/name], but [name]Grace[/name] seems out of place?
[name]Saffron[/name] [name]Minerva[/name] [name]Sarah[/name], but I don’t exactly like the two names beginning in S
[name]Aviva[/name] [name]Lucie[/name] [name]Kay[/name] - but why no y for [name]Lucy[/name], and a y for [name]Kay[/name]?
[name]Oceana[/name] [name]Megan[/name] Nyamh /[name]Ebba[/name] - I’m not understanding the [name]Ebba[/name]/Nyamh/[name]Niamh[/name] thing? [name]Oceana[/name] is gorgeous!
[name]Athena[/name] [name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Nicole[/name] nn Thena – [name]Attie[/name] could be a cute nn.
[name]Aura[/name] [name]Violet[/name] [name]Carrie[/name] - agree with pp who suggested [name]Aura[/name] [name]Violet[/name] [name]Kay[/name]

Comments on others:
Noemí [name]Maureen[/name] [name]Adelina[/name] - only like [name]Adelina[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Meryl[/name] - [name]Elizabeth[/name] seems the odd one out
[name]Artemis[/name] [name]Ella[/name] [name]May[/name] nn [name]Artie[/name] - I really prefer [name]Artemisia[/name], but that’s just me
[name]Tierra[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] ([name]Tia[/name]) - [name]Tierra[/name] is not floating my boat
[name]Willow[/name] [name]Teresa[/name] [name]Janet[/name] - I think [name]Teresa[/name] and [name]Janet[/name] may be a little too much together
