our boy names are sorted, but time is ticking and we haven’t narrowed down a girls list. because we’d like to keep the name a total surprise, i haven’t really solicited advice from friends or family and i feel like i’m in a bubble – i don’t want to overlook something dreadful and have it pointed out after the kid is born and named! so, please help me, ladies (and gents, if there are any).
we’ve got two lists, one for potential first names and one for middles. ALL are either family names or names with very special significance to us; we’re not much for random name selection just because it sounds nice (though that works great for some!).
we’re open to crossovers except in a few cases (we don’t want doon or bee in the first position), so if you’d like to mix it up, please do. i’m somewhat open to new name suggestions, but will honestly probably not use them.
names that are sadly out due to other close family/friends using them: hazel, frida, beatrice (best friend’s DOG – so sad), clementine and anything that starts with lou/lu.
we also like double middles and would like a balance of family names and non-family names, so if you can think of any good combos, throw 'em out there!
thanks so much.
