need a 3syllable name to go with ALMAZ

hi everyone,

I am adopting an Ethiopian girl with the name ALMAZ. I am going to keep that as her middle name and [name]HOWARD[/name] will be her last name. I want the first name to be 3 syllables.

_______________ ALMAZ [name]HOWARD[/name]

Some of the names I have considered are:

[name]Emmerson[/name] or [name]Emerson[/name]
[name]Daniella[/name] (think [name]Danny[/name] or [name]Dannie[/name] is cute nickname)

but I am sure there are several i haven’t thought of…

please help!

[name]Naomi[/name] Almaz is so beautiful!! The others I don’t care for at all.


I agree with the previous poster that [name]Naomi[/name] is the coolest name on your list. I also like:


My apologies for any repeats.

[name]How[/name] exciting! Congratulations! :slight_smile: I’m sure I’ll repeat some names, so I’m sorry!

From your list, I like [name]Naomi[/name] a lot. :slight_smile:

[name]Adeline[/name] (instead of [name]Addison[/name])
[name]Genevieve[/name] (nn [name]Evie[/name])
[name]Madeleine[/name] (popular, though)
[name]Natalie[/name] (starts with an N, ends in an ee sound, like [name]Naomi[/name])
[name]Penelope[/name] (nn [name]Nell[/name], [name]Lola[/name], or [name]Poppy[/name])

Names with a modern style:

[name]Romilly[/name] (nn [name]Romy[/name])

[name]Addison[/name] is very trendy/dated, and reminds me of [name]Addison[/name]'s Disease (it’s an adrenal disease).

[name]Daniella[/name]: This feels very dated to me, like [name]Danielle[/name]. Also, with an A middle name, a first name ending in A creates an awkward flow to me. You may like [name]Danica[/name], but that ends with an A, too. (The back-to-back A issue may not bother you, but I thought I’d mention it just in case.) :slight_smile:

[name]Emerson[/name]: I’m not a fan of boys’ names on girls, but I prefer [name]Emerson[/name] to [name]Addison[/name].

[name]Amanda[/name]: I think it’s a pretty name, but it feels dated to me. You may like [name]Miranda[/name].

Good luck! :slight_smile:
