I love the [name]EM[/name] sound of em names and really love the nick name [name]Emmy[/name] as well as emma. Unfortunately I am not really in love with any other em names. While I like some of them I just can’t invision using them on my daughter. [name]Ember[/name] is a neat sounding name which I hadn’t really considered but it reminds me too much of [name]Amber[/name] which i hate. Sigh. And [name]Emmaline[/name] and [name]Emmanuella[/name] are much to long/don’t sound good with the middle name. Actuallly the middle name is what has booted most name choices out which is unfortunate but it is non negotiable.
I had tossed around the names [name]Lilah[/name] and [name]Leila[/name] for a month before my husband finally decided that he didn’t like either of them. Previously he had given no real opinion of the names other than spelling. While I prefer using I’s he prefers Y’s ([name]Layla[/name] and [name]Lylah[/name]). I was really upset when he finally stated he didn’t care for either name, mainly because he let me think on them so long that I was set on [name]Lilah[/name] and then he totally vetoed it. This made things complicated because I had already ruled out [name]Emily[/name] for being too popular and [name]Katherine[/name] for not being quite right, of course these were both names he then admitted to liking. He tends to like very traditional girly sounding names. Two other suggestions of his were [name]Sarah[/name] (which I like but find too plain) and [name]Chloe[/name] (which I don’t like all that much and is our cats name and thus not an option). I had suggested to him some alternate spellings of [name]Emily[/name] last night and he vetoed all of those, he of course prefers the Y spelling Which is fine because I also like that spelling, but hate that it’s the most common. I was hoping that if we did pick such a popular name I could at least give her a different spelling. Though I know alternate spellings can cause more problems than they’re worth sometimes (my name is [name]Lindsay[/name] and I have never once had some one spell it correctly i get [name]Lindsey[/name] or [name]Lyndsey[/name]).
I really like the name [name]Willow[/name], but doubt my husband would go for it, I’ll have to run it by him. [name]Olive[/name] is a type of garnish, not a name in my opinion. I like [name]Lily[/name] but it is [name]WAY[/name] too popular where I live. I actualy don’t know any little girls named [name]Emily[/name], but know lots of [name]Lily[/name]'s, [name]Lilyanne[/name]'s and [name]Lilyanna[/name]'s (which is probably one of the reasons I will still consider [name]Emily[/name]). I like [name]Charolotte[/name] but have a friend who used this, plus hubby is not a fan. [name]Jane[/name] and [name]Rose[/name] are to plain. I do not like [name]Maren[/name], [name]Audrey[/name], [name]Imogen[/name] or [name]Maeve[/name]. And [name]Hanna[/name], [name]Belle[/name], [name]Abigail[/name], [name]Vivian[/name], [name]Eva[/name], [name]Eve[/name], [name]Lucy[/name] and [name]Alice[/name] are not really my style exactly. Aven is kinda neat, but not sure how I feel about it. [name]Lola[/name] is really cute but was the name a gave to my truck and reminds of of [name]Lolita[/name], which is not a good association.
Not sure if I will ever be able to settle on a name. I’ve been in love with names/naming for so long that I have become very picky and opinionated. I posted the question on this site because I know most people on here are just as obsessed as I am and are very good at thinking outside the box. If anyone could help it’s you all
