Need opinions!!

i have made a new list of names i am considering and would like your opinions on the names! thanks in advance! also any suggestions on middles names would be nice as well :slight_smile:

[name]Saige[/name] - spelling is negotiable. but last name begins with M what do you think of the initials “S&M” ???
Eilie - pronounced eye-lee

[name]Lyvia[/name] – very cute, but I much prefer the spelling [name]Livia[/name], and like it more as a nn
Evanie – hmm, not sure what to think about this one. It is pretty, but sounds made up at the same time.
Nolee – not my style. I like [name]Nola[/name], however.
[name]Saige[/name] - spelling is negotiable. but last name begins with M what do you think of the initials “S&M” ??? – initials don’t bother me; I like the name, but prefer spelling [name]Sage[/name]
[name]Eliana[/name] – love it for its meaning, not a fan of the nn [name]Ellie[/name] (only because it is way too over-used/popular in my area)
[name]Sawyer[/name] – boys name to me
[name]Josie[/name] – [name]LOVE[/name] it, but as a nickname for [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Ellison[/name] – hmmm, not a fan. I also think this would get confused with the name [name]Allison[/name].
[name]Aria[/name] – love this
Eilie - pronounced eye-lee – I think this would get mispronounced a lot (in part because it looks so much like [name]Ellie[/name])


[name]Lyvia[/name] - [name]Love[/name] it, as [name]Livia[/name]. [name]Liv[/name] is a great nickname. [name]Lyvia[/name] looks strange to me, but [name]Livia[/name] is divine!
Evanie - Really cute, and [name]Evie[/name] [EH-vee] or [name]Eva[/name] [EH-va] would be perfect nicknames.
Nolee - Nope. This looks made-up to me, and it’s rather insubstantial.
[name]Saige[/name] - [name]Sage[/name], for sure. It’s cute and spunky! What’s wrong with SM? Those are my sister’s initials, and they’re fine.
[name]Eliana[/name] - [name]Alana[/name] is more my style, and [name]Ellie[/name] anything is rather popular now. Like others better…
[name]Sawyer[/name] - Cute, but I like others more.
[name]Josie[/name] - Short for [name]Josephine[/name], or just [name]Josie[/name]? Too nickname-y alone for me. [name]Josephine[/name] “[name]Josie[/name]” is great!
[name]Ellison[/name] - Too close to [name]Allison[/name], and [name]Ellie[/name] is so popular. Nope.
[name]Aria[/name] - [name]Love[/name] this! Romantic and elegant and feminine. Uncommon and sophisticated. [name]Ari[/name] is a nice nickname.
Eilie - Eilley or [name]Eilidh[/name], maybe? Eilie will be taken for [name]Ellie[/name] more often than not. Nope.

So, my favorites, in order, are [name]Livia[/name], [name]Aria[/name], Evanie, [name]Sage[/name], and [name]Josephine[/name] “[name]Josie[/name].” [name]How[/name] long is your last name? You could use [name]Josephine[/name] as a middle name ([name]Livia[/name] [name]Josephine[/name], [name]Aria[/name] [name]Josephine[/name], or Evanie [name]Josephine[/name]) or [name]Juliet[/name] ([name]Livia[/name] [name]Juliet[/name], [name]Aria[/name] [name]Juliet[/name], Evanie [name]Juliet[/name]). [name]Sage[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] or [name]Sage[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name] would be cute, and [name]Josephine[/name] [name]Eva[/name] or [name]Josephine[/name] [name]Sarah[/name] would be cute…

[name]Lemon[/name] :slight_smile:

[name]Lyvia[/name] Well I just love the classic and popular [name]Olivia[/name] and I think that this would fit your daughter for life and you could always give her the nn of [name]Livia[/name]

Evanie This sounds made up but a little like [name]Ivana[/name]

Nolee Again it sounds made up but reminds me of [name]Nola[/name] and [name]Noelle[/name]

[name]Saige[/name] - [name]Sage[/name] is a nice name and I prefer it for a girl

[name]Eliana[/name] An excellent choice, very pretty and feminine

[name]Sawyer[/name] Not for a girl

[name]Josie[/name] as a nn for [name]Josephine[/name] and I think she would grow out of [name]Josie[/name] by the time she was 12, and then [name]Jo[/name] would be a good nn.

[name]Ellison[/name] reminds me of [name]Duke[/name] [name]Ellison[/name] but if you like [name]Allison[/name], [name]Alice[/name] or [name]Elise[/name] it would be a good substitute

[name]Aria[/name] Very pretty

Eilie - Is this a gaelic name something like [name]Eileen[/name]? I would like to suggest the beautiful and unusual [name]Isla[/name]

[name]Olivia[/name] [name]Adele[/name]
[name]Olivia[/name] [name]Elise[/name]
[name]Olivia[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]
[name]Olivia[/name] [name]Jean[/name]
[name]Isla[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Noelle[/name] [name]Augusta[/name]
[name]Nola[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Helena[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Eliana[/name] [name]Hope[/name]
[name]Marissa[/name] [name]Eliana[/name]
[name]Eliana[/name] [name]Ivy[/name]
[name]Eliana[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]
[name]Eliana[/name] [name]Paige[/name]
[name]Eliana[/name] [name]Marguerite[/name]
[name]Sage[/name] [name]Alexandra[/name]
[name]Sage[/name] [name]Willow[/name]
[name]Sage[/name] [name]Echo[/name]
[name]Sage[/name] [name]Elisabeth[/name]

rollo :slight_smile:

[name]Lyvia[/name] - I agree with everyone else, this spelling doesn’t “look” very nice but I love [name]Livia[/name] and it’s been on my own list for a while. If you like the y, maybe you’d like [name]Sylvia[/name] or [name]Sylvie[/name]? I think [name]Livia[/name] would make a fabulous choice though and I actually think it stands well on it’s own, [name]Livana[/name] or Liviana are other alternatives.

Evanie - I like this spelt [name]Evenie[/name] - I think it looks girlier and prettier because it doesn’t have the “[name]Evan[/name]” bit in it. I adore this name though! I foudn it recently when someone on here posted their children’s names and one was [name]Evenie[/name], I’m now absolutely in love with it!

Nolee - not my style, I agree with pp’s though, [name]Nola[/name] is gorgeous!

In all honesty I don’t like [name]Saige[/name] or [name]Sage[/name], it’s not my style. To me it sounds old, and ugly and manly but I know lots of Berries like it. The S&M thing never would have crossed my mind though! My partner’s last name begins with an M and I’ve considered plenty of S names! I don’t think it matters, there’s not gonna be an “&” between the two names!

[name]Eliana[/name] - I like it but don’t love it, it’s a bit overly frilly and king of “exotic lite” to me. I love [name]Elena[/name] or [name]Elina[/name] though. Or [name]Liana[/name].

[name]Sawyer[/name] - this is cute, for a boy. Sorry I don’t like it on girls.

[name]Josie[/name] - I love [name]Josie[/name] and I live in the UK where names like this get used on their own all the time, but personally I do prefer it as a nn for [name]Josephine[/name] :slight_smile:

[name]Ellison[/name] - I’ve never heard this before. It’s ok. But names ending in “son” on girls are a pet hate of mine because that means “son of” so it seems silly to me on a daughter! What about [name]Elise[/name]?

[name]Aria[/name] - I love [name]Aria[/name], this is another of my favourites! So pretty and soft :slight_smile:

Eilie - I wouldn’t know how to pronounce that, and I’m not that fond of it anyway. Seems like a cross between the old fashioned [name]Eileen[/name] and the trendy [name]Hailey[/name].

I really like:

[name]Aria[/name] [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

Best of luck!

I don’t think I will be adding much new information as I pretty much agree with what everyone else has said, but here are my two cents:

[name]Lyvia[/name] - beautiful name, but MUCH prefer [name]Livia[/name]. The spelling of [name]Lyvia[/name] throws it out for me.
Evanie - really like this. Special, unique, not confusing.
Nolee - no…sounds like a nickname for [name]Nolan[/name] or something?
[name]Saige[/name] - the SM initials don’t bother me at all and I would not have even though about that, but [name]Sage[/name] is a better spelling in my book. I like [name]Lemon[/name]'s suggestions of pairing it with something feminine like [name]Emmeline[/name].
[name]Eliana[/name] - As far as unique E names go, I prefer Evanie to [name]Eliana[/name]. I get confused on this kind of trying to be [name]Elana[/name].
[name]Sawyer[/name] - Not a fan for a girl.
[name]Josie[/name] - only as a nickname for [name]Josephine[/name] for sure.
[name]Ellison[/name] - again, a bit made up sounding and too close to [name]Allison[/name]. What about [name]Emerson[/name]? To me that has the more masculine feel of [name]Sawyer[/name] but seems more appropriate for a girl. (Like my name, [name]Sheridan[/name]). [name]Emerson[/name] is also one like [name]Sage[/name] that could work well with a feminine middle name…[name]Emerson[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]. [name]Emerson[/name] [name]Jane[/name].
[name]Aria[/name] - I actually really like this one. You would rarely have issues with spelling or pronunciation either which is a big plus.
Eilie - [name]Way[/name] too confusing. Is it [name]Ellie[/name]? [name]Elie[/name]? She would ALWAYS have to correct spelling or pronunciation!

Favorites: [name]Livia[/name], Evanie, [name]Josephine[/name] nn [name]Josie[/name], and [name]Emerson[/name], even though it was my new addition :slight_smile:

Let us know what you’re leaning towards!
xo [name]Sheridan[/name]

thanks for all the feedback… i like the name [name]Olivia[/name] as well but with there being so many i wanted it to be a little different. and the nn Lyv i think is darling. And as for Evanie i prefer just [name]Evan[/name] but my boyfriend hates it so i thought if i changed it to Evanie he couldnt say it was a boys name and i could have [name]Evan[/name] for a nn. And with the initials SM i just thought of the S & M connection? maybe im just weird. She will have a 3 syllable last name so im thinking a pretty short middle name. @frenchie good job with the Nolee [name]Nolan[/name] connection thats where i got it from. :wink: For Eilie there is also the spelling of [name]Aili[/name] which might be easier to see and pronounce? I have a friend whos name is Airi so i wanted to change alittle bit so they wouldnt be so similar. and i prefer [name]Josie[/name] to [name]Josephine[/name] and was thinking of [name]Joey[/name] or [name]Jos[/name] for nn.

more suggestions?

[name]Lyvia[/name] [name]Sage[/name]

more suggestions?

I think you may like [name]Jocelyn[/name] if you want [name]Jos[/name] for a nn, [name]Jocelyn[/name] [name]Ann[/name]

[name]Liv[/name] [name]Eliana[/name] the name [name]Liv[/name] is a Norse name meaning Life. I love that meaning! If you gave your daughter this name then you could give her the nn of [name]Livia[/name]. I think that [name]Lyvia[/name] sounds like you are saying Lie vee ah.

[name]Lyvia[/name] [name]Ann[/name] (family name) Very nice I like the ‘e’ in [name]Anne[/name] and [name]Anne[/name] is due for a comeback, it is a lovely name

Evanie [name]Sage[/name] What about [name]Evangeline[/name]? I think Evanie is hard to say

Evanie [name]Ann[/name] (too much??) Yes

[name]Sage[/name] [name]Marie[/name] Nice

[name]Aria[/name] [name]Sage[/name] [name]Aria[/name] is a lovely name

[name]Eliana[/name] [name]Marie[/name] Nice

Eilie [name]Jade[/name] The best of your Eilie combos it sounds very pretty, one of my favourites from your list. Another option is Airlie I know of a small girl with this name.

My top picks are

Airlie or Eilie [name]Jade[/name]
[name]Eliana[/name] [name]Marie[/name]
[name]Liv[/name] [name]Eliana[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] is very pretty I like [name]Aria[/name] [name]Sage[/name] and [name]Aria[/name] [name]Marie[/name]
