[name]Calypso[/name] [name]Skye[/name] is very pretty, and I think [name]Callie[/name] would make a great nickname. In the same vein, what about [name]Calliope[/name]?
The other name I thought of was [name]Isolde[/name], nn [name]Izzy[/name].

Thank you :slight_smile: [name]Isolde[/name] is beautiful… sol is a pretty nn for [name]Isolde[/name]…

What about Caspia for a girl?


Caspia is very pretty and definately unusual…i like nn pia too! food for thought for sure… thanks for the suggestion…would be a nice way to honour uncle [name]Cass[/name]!

I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Aurora[/name]. But I’ve always liked the nn [name]Rory[/name] for it. I like [name]Delphine[/name] as well and a pp’s suggestion of [name]Calliope[/name].

[name]Aurora[/name]: love it. I knew a little [name]Aurora[/name] and I loved the way she said “aw-whoa-wuh” so I wouldn’t use a nn. I do like [name]Ora[/name] as a stand alone name but it could be a nn

[name]Valentine[/name]: honestly I wouldn’t want a name based on my conception. And what about when people ask how she got the name? I wouldn’t want to share that story. Have you heard of [name]Bryce[/name] [name]Dallas[/name] [name]Howard[/name]? She’s [name]Ron[/name] [name]Howard[/name]'s daughter and she and all her siblings have mn based on their conception. In an interview she said, “It’s completely gross. Thanks dad.”
Why not use a name based on her birth?

[name]Calypso[/name]: the “lip” part bothers me, I prefer [name]Callisto[/name] nn Listo “lee-sto”

[name]Delphine[/name]: I like [name]Delphi[/name] as a stand alone, so I’d use [name]Delphi[/name], Phina “fee-nuh”, or Phi/Fi as the nn. [name]Delphina[/name] [name]Phoenix[/name] flows better

[name]Olympia[/name]: I like [name]Pia[/name] and [name]Ola[/name]

As is, I like [name]Olympia[/name] [name]Delphine[/name] and [name]Aurora[/name] [name]Delphine[/name]

[name]Kismet[/name]- means fate. [name]Aurora[/name] [name]Kismet[/name] may work

[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Valentine[/name] - Cute. Wouldn’t tell anyone, including her, about the Valentines thing though. Too much info.

[name]Calypso[/name] - Okay, but prefer [name]Calantha[/name] or [name]Calandra[/name], or [name]Calixta[/name] or [name]Callisto[/name]. [name]Callie[/name] is much nicer sounding than [name]Lypsie[/name], which sounds like “lippy” or “lisping”

[name]Delphine[/name] - Probably my favourite of all of these. I really love [name]Delphine[/name].

[name]Olympia[/name] - [name]Do[/name] you want her to hear Special Olympics jokes?

[name]Cassia[/name] might work. :slight_smile: if you decide against [name]Aurora[/name], then [name]Cassia[/name] [name]Valentine[/name] flows nicely.

Ooohh, I love [name]Delphine[/name]!

Some other suggestions:


Absolutely love [name]Aurora[/name]! As you can see in my signature, haha. [name]Aurora[/name] [name]Valentine[/name] is cute. My favorite nn for [name]Aurora[/name] is [name]Ari[/name], personally. :slight_smile:

I really love [name]Delphine[/name], too, although I would prefer to see [name]Aurora[/name] [name]Delphine[/name]!

What about [name]Valentina[/name]? I think it’s gorgeous. I think [name]Leni[/name], [name]Val[/name]/[name]Valley[/name], [name]Allie[/name], [name]Tia[/name], [name]Via[/name], [name]Lia[/name], etc. would be cute nns. I like the suggestions of [name]Cassia[/name], [name]Calliope[/name], [name]Kismet[/name] (I agree, [name]Aurora[/name] [name]Kismet[/name] is adorable!), [name]Circe[/name], and [name]Isolde[/name].

I’m not very good at coming up with whimsical names, haha, but what about [name]Alouette[/name]? I’ve always thought that was so whimsical and fun, and I love the nns [name]Allie[/name], [name]Lulu[/name]/[name]Lou[/name], [name]Lola[/name], and [name]Etta[/name].

Good luck!

Thank you all for your suggestions. [name]Cassia[/name] is nice… [name]Cassius[/name] was our favourite contender for boys name until we discovered it meant ‘empty’!!! I still like [name]Valentine[/name] as a stand alone name regardless of the conception association but appreciate the too much info comments :slight_smile: [name]Celestia[/name] is a beautiful suggestion and ruby calypso is gorgeous… ruby valentine would also be a cute combo but i know alot of little ruby’s… it seems to be quite common now! I have similar concerns with [name]Aurora[/name]…it seems to be growing in popularity too and i fear it may become quite common? what do you berries think?

Oh I have just seen posts on second page now… some beautiful suggestions here too… I love [name]Elodie[/name] (I have a beautiful French friend called [name]Elodie[/name]!) [name]Elodie[/name] [name]Delphine[/name] is cute! Also like gypsy, sorcha…have always loved [name]Althea[/name]…[name]Alouette[/name] and [name]Violetta[/name] or perhaps viola are very cute too :slight_smile:

I love [name]Valentina[/name] as a first name. Like others have said, I wouldn’t share the conception thing but it is a beautiful name in and of itself.

[name]How[/name] about:
[name]Ophelia[/name] (Ophie, Phee)
[name]Cressida[/name] (Cress)
[name]Ariadne[/name] ([name]Ari[/name])
