new and improved list! feedback please!

[name]Hi[/name] Everyone! I’ve posted a few times about specific names, but just revised my list and would love to know what everyone thinks. I used to make the list, so if you’d like to vote, here is my link:

Otherwise, here are my combo’s so far. Please let me know which ones you like, which ones you don’t, other combos that might work better, etc. The last name is an 8 letter, 4 syllable very italian last name that ends in “iano.”

Also, [name]Paul[/name] and [name]Kathleen[/name] are family names which is why they are very often in the middle.

Thanks so much for the replies!

@jennipea- The name “Aniela” is the polish form of [name]Angela[/name], and it was my great grandmothers name. When she came to the US, she Americanized it to [name]Nellie[/name]. I amended the spelling to “Anyela” for pronunciation, but do you think I should keep it “Aniela”?

@frustratedauthor-Thanks for bringing my attention to the double “th” in [name]Theodore[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]. I agree it’s a bit much! And thanks for noticing our “theme”. The husband and I are very much outdoorsy, nature people, so it’s pretty important to us that the little bambino’s name have a connection to nature.

Thanks for the feedback and keep them coming! =)

Anyela [name]Sage[/name] - nickname: [name]Ella[/name] - I’m more familiar with this name as “Aniela” (love it!). I would think it would be too difficult for most people. It’s like [name]Daniela[/name], without the D. Unless you really like this spelling/it has meaning for you this way, I would use the classic Polish spelling. It’s very beautiful.

Anyela [name]Kathleen[/name] - nickname: [name]Anya[/name] – Again, I think Aniela [name]Kathleen[/name] would be very beautiful. I really like [name]Anya[/name] (though the Polish way is usually [name]Ania[/name], I think [name]Anya[/name] this way would help people to say Aniela as Anyela)

[name]Magnolia[/name] [name]Kathleen[/name] - nickname: [name]Lia[/name]
[name]Magnolia[/name] [name]Rue[/name] - nickname: [name]Lia[/name]
[name]Magnolia[/name] [name]Sage[/name] - nickname: [name]Lia[/name]
([name]Magnolia[/name]'s okay of a name. I knew one that went by [name]Maggie[/name]. I think [name]Magnolia[/name] [name]Sage[/name] and [name]Magnolia[/name] [name]Rue[/name] are very botanical ([name]Magnolia[/name] [name]Sage[/name] appears to also be a popular oriental rug pattern), but I like [name]Kathleen[/name] better with Aniela/Anyela. I think of all of them [name]Magnolia[/name] [name]Rue[/name] is the best.)

[name]Lila[/name] [name]Winter[/name] - very elegant and pretty

[name]Dahlia[/name] [name]Rue[/name] - a little bit botanical, but okay

[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Leigh[/name] - nickname: [name]Neve[/name] — Very pretty!

[name]Leah[/name] [name]Kathleen[/name] - Seems a little plain compared to some of the others that you have listed, but a stand up name regardless

[name]Azalea[/name] [name]Kathleen[/name] - nickname: [name]Lea[/name]
[name]Autumn[/name] [name]Kathleen[/name] - nickname: [name]Audy[/name]
[name]Dahlia[/name] [name]Kathleen[/name] - nickname: [name]Lia[/name]
(These names are all just okay for me, but still nice combinations)

[name]Annika[/name] [name]Sage[/name] - I like other combos better

[name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Rue[/name] - nickname: [name]Lia[/name] – Very pretty and southern belle

[name]Aurora[/name] -Pretty
[name]Fiona[/name] - Nice

My favorites would be: Anyela/Aniela [name]Kathleen[/name], [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Leigh[/name], [name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Rue[/name], and [name]Lila[/name] [name]Winter[/name]


[name]Silas[/name] [name]Paul[/name]
[name]Silas[/name] [name]Micah[/name]
[name]Silas[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] - [name]Silas[/name] is a cool name, but of all of them, I like [name]Silas[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] best.

[name]Jackson[/name] [name]Oak[/name] - nickname: [name]Jack[/name] - Nice
[name]Jackson[/name] [name]Paul[/name] - nickname: [name]Jack[/name] - I like the unexpected [name]Paul[/name] in the middle!

[name]Theodore[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] - nickname: [name]Theo[/name] - I’m fond of alliteration names and this one works well in my opinion.
[name]Asher[/name] [name]Paul[/name] - nickname: [name]Ash[/name] - Pretty handsome

[name]Atticus[/name] [name]Paul[/name] – [name]Atticus[/name] really isn’t my style. I like most of your other choices a lot better, but it’s an okay name.

[name]Gideon[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] - I like [name]Gideon[/name] a lot!

[name]Rocco[/name] [name]Paul[/name]
[name]Rocco[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]

[name]Gavin[/name] [name]Michael[/name]
[name]Gavin[/name] [name]Paul[/name]
[name]Logan[/name] [name]Paul[/name]
[name]Logan[/name] [name]Michael[/name]
[name]Logan[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]
([name]Gavin[/name] and [name]Logan[/name] are a little commonplace compared to the others, but okay)

[name]Evan[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] - This combination is very sweet.

[name]Everett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] - nickname: [name]Rhett[/name]
[name]Everett[/name] [name]Paul[/name] - nickname: [name]Rhett[/name]
([name]Everett[/name] nn [name]Rhett[/name] is very interesting!)

[name]Miles[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] - nickname: [name]Milo[/name]
[name]Killian[/name] [name]Paul[/name] - nickname: [name]Ian[/name]
[name]Dexter[/name] - nickname: [name]Dex[/name]
(The rest are just okay)

[name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] - I like this one too!

Yes, this :slight_smile:

I love Aniela [name]Sage[/name]. That’s a winner.
