[name_f]India[/name_f] is nice, but I love [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] and your reason for choosing it. [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] is beautiful.

Another vote for [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f], for all the reasons you gave, blacksail! :slight_smile:

[name_f]India[/name_f] is lovely and I slightly prefer it to [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f], so I would choose [name_f]India[/name_f] :slight_smile:

I prefer [name_f]India[/name_f], but [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] is nice too.

The story behind [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] is so sweet and I love the sound of [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f]! [name_m]Tobias[/name_m] and [name_m]Mateo[/name_m] are great names, too.

I grew up knowing a [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] and I always thought it was such a beautiful name. I also love your meaning behind it. Big vote for [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] here!

My little boy is an [name_u]Indigo[/name_u], so theoretically I should love [name_f]India[/name_f], but it being a country’s name kind of puts me off, even if, as you explained, it has to do with honoring your husband’s origins. I suggest maybe [name_f]Indira[/name_f] or [name_u]Indigo[/name_u] itself. [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] is a beautiful name by the way and the fact that it holds such a special memory to you of your grandmother makes it my vote.

They are both so fabulous, how can you lose? [name_f]India[/name_f] sounds exotic and [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] sounds elegant. Two wonderful names, but I do love the floral connection (dahlias remind me of my mother).

I love both but slightly prefer [name_f]India[/name_f]. A suggestion is [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] [name_f]Indie[/name_f] or [name_f]Indie[/name_f] [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] which is a way you can use both names.

[name_f]India[/name_f] by far. I love it, and I think [name_f]India[/name_f] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] is soo lovely.

I like both names, but your reasoning for loving the name [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] is so beautiful and sentimental that I just had to vote for it. [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] is a stunner :slight_smile:

I love [name_f]India[/name_f]…it’s so pretty and unique :slight_smile:

Both are fantastic, with amazing reasons for choosing them. Maybe you could use their obvious nicknames as a tie-breaker: do you love [name_f]Dolly[/name_f] or [name_f]Indy[/name_f] more?

[name_f]India[/name_f] is a beautiful name & that’s a beautiful connection to your family. Family heritage is important to show you’re proud of where you come from. Plus [name_f]Indi[/name_f] is a cute nickname. [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f], though pretty, the nickname Dahl is not as nice and it always makes me think of the black [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f]. [name_m]Just[/name_m] me though :slight_smile:

[name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f]! Beautiful!!
