[name]Hi[/name] there ladies! My name is [name]Whitney[/name]. I have always been a name nerd, and since discovering this site earlier in the year it has become my absolute favorite! Thank you for that, [name]Pam[/name] and [name]Linda[/name]
My husband [name]James[/name] and I are expecting our first child, a little girl whom we are over-the-moon ecstatic for. My naming style is completely all over the place, but we both have the same goal in mind: we want to honor our respective heritages. I am of distant Romanian descent, and I”ve thusly been obsessed with anything and everything Romania for the greater portion of my life. [name]James[/name]” family hails entirely from [name]France[/name], and we have a very, very French last name.
Probably the neatest thing about our melting pot of cultures, though, is that we have some honorary Italian thrown into the mix! [name]James[/name] was actually born in [name]Milan[/name], [name]Italy[/name]; his parents and brothers were on summer vacation there and he decided to come join the fun two months early. I have always found the story positively adorable and have long-wondered if we could commemorate the tale with our child”s name. It is also tradition in [name]James[/name]” family to have two middle names, and I would like to continue that
Without further adieu, I present to you all our shortlist! Any help ” opinions on present names or suggestions for more ” would be so greatly appreciated. On some of the more blatantly foreign names that most of you have probably never heard of, I tried to elaborate with origins, pronunciations, etc.
Cosmina (Romanian name pronounced [name]Cos[/name]-me-nah)
Crina (Romanian name pronounced Cree-nah)
[name]Elisabeta[/name] (Romanian form of [name]Elizabeth[/name] pronounced Ee-lis-ah-bet-ah)
Luminita (Romanian name pronounced Loo-me-nee-tah)
[name]Mirabelle[/name] (Hubby”s favorite; he loves the nickname [name]Bella[/name]! If anyone knows of any other ways to get to it outside of the trite [name]Isabella[/name], please speak up!)
