Names to Go With This Surname

Our last name is [name]Cherry[/name], and I’m having a tough time thinking of names that would go well it. Obviously, [name]Bing[/name], Popper and [name]Buster[/name] are out :wink:

My husband keeps suggesting what I would call “cutesy” names, like [name]Kayla[/name] and [name]Bailey[/name], which just aren’t my style and in my opinion are just a bit to precious with our last name. I like more classic, vintage names, but I also want something that sounds nice with our surname. A few I’ve liked so far include [name]Nora[/name], [name]Eliza[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name]. I was hoping that the Nameberry community could give me some great suggestions that would go well with our last name.

Thanks!

What do you think?

[name]Love[/name] [name]Matilda[/name]! [name]Danielle[/name] is so lovely, but it’s actually his sister’s name. [name]Gabrielle[/name], [name]Victoria[/name] and [name]Catherine[/name] are also gorgeous.

I’m glad you like some! You’ll just have to clear them with hubby then you’re away! Let us know what he says…

My first thought was [name]Bryony[/name]/[name]Briony[/name] :slight_smile:
It has the cuteness factor and the classic name factor I think you’re looking for…
Also loving the suggestion of [name]Marjorie[/name], which is supercute and graceful all at once!

[name]Hi[/name]! I love [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Cherry[/name]. :slight_smile:

It’s true, [name]Cherry[/name] is a hard one to match! I’d avoid all word names, if I were you, and all names ending in a y. I think you’re right that you need something with a bit of weight to it to avoid sounding cartoonish.

I like [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Cherry[/name] and [name]Norah[/name] [name]Cherry[/name] a lot. I think the alliteration of [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Cherry[/name] might be a bit much.

That is a bit of a tough one, but I think it is cute! I would personally stick with strong, elegant classics that maybe aren’t too feminine but still names that have a sweet sound. Also, [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Cherry[/name] is a bit much with the CH sound, so I’d say let that one go (as much as it pains me to say it!)…

[name]Yvonne[/name] [name]Cherry[/name]
[name]Yolanda[/name] [name]Cherry[/name]

Some were just for fun, but I think you have some good girl options here! Unfortunately, [name]Cherry[/name] seems to make many nicknames sound silly (e.g., [name]Sarah[/name] “[name]Sadie[/name]” [name]Cherry[/name], [name]Elizabeth[/name] “[name]Libby[/name]” [name]Cherry[/name], [name]Caroline[/name] “[name]Carrie[/name]” [name]Cherry[/name], etc.), so you need to work with that…

Did you want boy names, too?

There have been so many good suggestions, but I thought I’ll add some that I don’t think have been mentioned.

Wow, fantastic suggestions everyone! You have no idea how helpful this is…I actually have a nice, lovely list of names to present to my hubby :slight_smile:

I could also use some suggestions for boy names. I tend to like a lot of the classics ([name]William[/name], [name]Daniel[/name], [name]James[/name], etc), but I’m not opposed to names that are a bit out of the mainstream (I quite like [name]Atticus[/name], for example). [name]Henry[/name] is my absolute favorite boys name of all time, but I’m a bit worried that the ‘y’ ending will be a bit to sing-songy with our last name. What do you think?

[name]Hi[/name]!

[name]Henry[/name] is my favorite male name - along with [name]Nathaniel[/name] - too! I think [name]Henry[/name] [name]Cherry[/name] is fine, but [name]Harry[/name] [name]Cherry[/name] is not…

[name]Henry[/name] is my favorite boys’ name, too. :slight_smile: To me, [name]Henry[/name] [name]Cherry[/name] is matchy, but not over the top sing-songy. If you’re not comfortable using it up front, you could always use it in the middle!

Some more names:

[name]Abraham[/name] [name]Cherry[/name]

[name]Julian[/name] [name]Cherry[/name]
[name]Nathaniel[/name] [name]Cherry[/name]
[name]Oliver[/name] [name]Cherry[/name]
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Cherry[/name]
[name]Theodore[/name] [name]Cherry[/name] (then again, lots or R…)
[name]William[/name] [name]Cherry[/name] (oops…This was on your list…) :slight_smile:

Good luck! :slight_smile:
