We’re a good 6 weeks from finding out the gender, but I can’t stop obsessing about names! So, here are my top choices along with possible combinations, and I’d love any feedback:
1.) [name]Margot[/name]- This has been one of my favorites since I heard it for the first time. Hubby says it’s growing on him, and he thinks it’s a “classy” name. I really like [name]Margot[/name] [name]Penelope[/name].
2.) [name]Gwyneth[/name]- [name]Gwyneth[/name] is a recent name love for me, but DH and I are really loving the nn [name]Gwyn[/name] right now. Our main concern is it’s similarity to our niece, [name]Brynn[/name]'s name. Thoughts? MN suggestions?
3.) [name]Ingrid[/name]- My lovely DH suggested this name to me before we were expecting and it’s been slowly, slowly growing on me ever since. My biggest problem is that I really do not like Ingy as a nickname. So much so that I think I’d melt down if someone called my child this! I much prefer [name]Indie[/name] as a nickname. I really like the combo [name]Ingrid[/name] [name]Leona[/name].
4.) [name]Phoebe[/name]- Another name that’s been at the top of hubby and I’s list for months. We love Phebes as a nickname, and so far I’ve come up with [name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Matilda[/name] as a possible combo. Any other suggestions? I’m not necessarily in love.
5.) [name]Helena[/name]- Also a newer love of mine. Another berry recently suggested [name]Helena[/name] [name]Violet[/name] and I think it might be a winner!
P.S. Our last name is [name]Buchanan[/name].
So, berries, what do you think? Which do you think fit the classic, timeless, but underused bill that we’re going for in a name?
