I posted a few weeks ago about our attempt to come up with a name for our second daughter, due in about 10 weeks now. When I first posted, we were focusing on the names [name]Rosalie[/name] and [name]Ivy[/name]. We”ve gone back and reviewed our list a bit, and would appreciate any feedback.
Our first daughter”s name is [name]Leah[/name]. Most of the names that I”m liking this time around are longer than [name]Leah[/name], but have short nicknames that we would probably use most often.
Our list now includes:
[name]Rosalie[/name] (my favourite)- we would likely call her [name]Rose[/name]/[name]Rosie[/name] most of the time.
[name]Rosemary[/name]- this is the name of an older family member and we”re not totally sure about using it for that reason. Again, nickname [name]Rose[/name]/[name]Rosie[/name].
[name]Margaret[/name] (great grandmother”s name)- we would likely call her [name]Maisie[/name], or maybe [name]Meg[/name].
[name]Josephine[/name]- really like the nickname [name]Josie[/name], but worry that the full name is a little too grand.
[name]Mae[/name]/[name]Marina[/name]- or some other form of [name]Mary[/name] (my mom is [name]Mary[/name] and mother-in-law’s middle name is [name]Marie[/name], so we don’t want to use either but maybe a variation)
We also like [name]Victoria[/name], but can”t agree on a nickname. I like [name]Tori[/name] but husband has problems with the [name]Tori[/name] spelling association, and I”m not a fan of [name]Vicki[/name].
[name]Ivy[/name] is still under consideration, but I”m less confident of that choice than before. I also like [name]Cecelia[/name]/[name]Celia[/name], [name]Juliet[/name] and [name]Helena[/name], but husband won”t agree to these.
Any thoughts on our list?
Thank you all for your help.
