New here, with a difficult last name


Daddy to be has a very difficult last name, it’s Rozencwajg, it’s from Polish decent.

We already have 2 girls name, [name]Axelle[/name] and [name]Clementine[/name] who we think fit very well with the last name. We’re having a little problem for boys names.

Any ideas?

I might also add that this is my first post here, obviously and that we live in a bilingual community so french and english names are welcome.

I think a lot of names could sound great with your last name. One thing you may want to consider is that since the name is long and will be difficult to spell (and pronounce), it may be nice to pair it with a first name that is short and simple, though I don’t think this is necessary and plenty of longer names would flow well.

A couple of suggestions:

[name]Andrew[/name] nn [name]Drew[/name] Rozencwajg
[name]Clayton[/name] nn [name]Clay[/name]
[name]Edward[/name] nn [name]Ward[/name]
[name]Finn[/name] - I think I would keep it [name]Finn[/name] without a longer formal name
[name]John[/name] nn [name]Jack[/name]
[name]Joseph[/name] nn [name]Joe[/name]
[name]Stanley[/name], but only if you’re very brave. nn [name]Stan[/name].

I think the girls names are a bit complicated for your last name. [name]Axelle[/name] is unusual so she will have to spell both her first and last names. For some people, pronunciation will be difficult, too. I love the name [name]Clementine[/name], but it is a long name to pair with Rozencwagj. I would stick with something short and easy to spell like [name]Lucy[/name]. I would also pick a classic, somewhat girly style like:
[name]Pauline[/name] nn [name]Polly[/name]

This is just my opinion.

I love [name]Eli[/name].
I really like [name]Eliott[/name] too with the nickname [name]Eli[/name], thank you very much.
[name]How[/name] do you pronounce [name]Asa[/name], I’m intrigued.

Hello [name]Susan[/name],
thank you for your input.
We will probably stick with [name]Clementine[/name] because it’s a family name and it’s dear to me, but thanks for your opinion.

We really like [name]Leo[/name]. We like the longer version [name]Leonard[/name] with the nickname [name]Leo[/name].
I’m not sure about [name]Zane[/name], that might be too many ‘‘z’’ for one person! but thank you! : )

[name]Asa[/name] is pronounced [name]Ace[/name]-uh. I happen to really love that name, and when I saw your last name, I thought it would work well. I think I like [name]Eli[/name] even more though (I love [name]Elliott[/name] also, and [name]Elijah[/name], but I think with your last name, [name]Eli[/name] is the sharpest).


[name]Tiny[/name] feet, I love [name]Leonardo[/name] nn [name]Leo[/name].
I think [name]Zane[/name] is kind of cool with your last name. That double z is bold.
[name]Clementine[/name] is a good choice since it is special for you.

[name]Aurelien[/name] (I can’t type accents) :slight_smile:

(Oops! I forgot that your last name begins with a [name]Rosen[/name] sound, so the names ending in N are a bit N heavy with your last name.) :slight_smile:

I love [name]Leo[/name]! :slight_smile:

Good luck! :slight_smile:

[name]Leo[/name] and [name]Eli[/name] are great suggestions and so are any of their longer versions.
I think shorter names would be great with your last name or something more classic like [name]George[/name] ([name]Susan[/name]'s suggestion) ect.

Really great suggestions so far!

Lets see _____ Rozencwajg My apologies for repeats.

French names -

[name]Audric[/name] (French) or [name]Aldrich[/name] (English)
[name]Beau[/name] - I love this one syllable name.
[name]Charles[/name] - always a great name imo.
[name]Noel[/name] - pronounced more like [name]Nole[/name] and not like [name]Noelle[/name] noh-elle

Other names -

[name]Abe[/name] - short from [name]Abraham[/name], I think it could work on it’s own.
[name]Theodore[/name] nn [name]Ted[/name]

[name]Hi[/name] I am late to this post but I will try to help

[name]Andrew[/name] is a great name to pair with a Polish name
