need first name to go with almaz

hi i am in need of a first name to go with the name almaz (the middle name)

the whole name will be ___________ almaz howard

i am adopting her and her first name is currently almaz which i will keep as the middle name.

i think a 3 syllable name sounds best and would love some input.

names i am considering include:

emmerson
naomi
danielle or daniella
olivia
amanda
meredith
julia or juilette
alexandra
elena
natalie
melanie


i like these names a lot but i don’t know if they flow:

charlotte
brooke or brooklyn
courtney
noelle
clair
cooper (ok, maybe i will save it for a boy)


any input is welcome!

thank you!

[name]Hi[/name]! I replied to your other thread, but I’ll repost it here. I see you added [name]Juliette[/name] to your list, and it’s my favorite! :slight_smile: (You added [name]Meredith[/name], too, which I think also works…I love [name]Juliette[/name] more, though.) :slight_smile:

I think a longer first name (at least three syllables) sounds great with a middle/last name that each have two syllables.

<<[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]Bryony[/name]
[name]Cecily[/name]
[name]Evelyn[/name]
[name]Emmeline[/name]
[name]Felicity[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] (nn [name]Evie[/name])
[name]Juliet[/name]
[name]Josephine[/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])
[name]Rosalie[/name]
[name]Vivienne[/name]

Names with a modern style:

[name]Bellamy[/name]
[name]Connelly[/name]
[name]Delaney[/name]
[name]Darien[/name]
[name]Emery[/name]
[name]Ellery[/name]
[name]Romilly[/name] (nn [name]Romy[/name])
[name]Waverly[/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! :-)>>
