Thanks So Much!! :slight_smile:

[name]Clara[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] - very pretty!
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] ([name]Mia[/name] would be the NN if one is used) - nice combo. I’m a little tired of [name]Mia[/name] but it’s sweet.
[name]Giselle[/name] [name]Sophie[/name] - very French and nice although the first syllable of [name]Giselle[/name] has some teasing potential.
[name]Elena[/name] [name]Natalie[/name] (wondering if I should swap the MN’s and do [name]Elena[/name] [name]Sophie[/name] and [name]Giselle[/name] [name]Natalie[/name]?) - I like any of these.
[name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Gemma[/name] - pretty nice but somehow the rhythm is a little off?
[name]Eulalia[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name] - I love both names but it’s kind of a lot of vowel all smooshed together here.
[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Adele[/name] - beautiful!
[name]Antonia[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name] - I love [name]Antonia[/name]! [name]Seraphina[/name] is a little heavy here and both end in -a, but it’s fine.
[name]Julianne[/name] [name]Estella[/name] - [name]Julianne[/name] is slightly tired and I’ve never gotten [name]Estella[/name] like most have. This is OK. [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Estella[/name] I’d like more…
[name]Victoria[/name] [name]Lillian[/name] (could go [name]Lillian[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] as well) - I think either is lovely!
[name]Philippa[/name] “[name]Pippa[/name]” [name]Juliette[/name] - nice! Although I wonder if baby Philippas/Pippas will become very date-able to this point in time.
[name]Sylvie[/name] [name]Isabelle[/name] - lovely!
[name]Ada[/name] Kateri (pronounced Kuh-tery and is a very special name to me) - I feel like this has grown on me since the first time I saw it!
[name]Mary[/name] [name]Agatha[/name] - very classic!
[name]Johanna[/name] [name]Bridgette[/name] (could also be [name]Joanna[/name] [name]Bridgette[/name]) - very cool (I prefer [name]Johanna[/name])
[name]Josephine[/name] “[name]Effie[/name]” [name]Francesca[/name] - love [name]Josephine[/name] but this combo is a little heavy, and [name]Effie[/name] isn’t my favorite, [name]Fee[/name] or [name]Fina[/name] would be cool.
[name]Lucille[/name] “[name]Lucy[/name]” [name]Philomena[/name] - [name]Love[/name] [name]Lucy[/name] and [name]Philomena[/name] and the combo, but [name]Lucille[/name] isn’t quite right to my ear.
[name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Magdalene[/name] - very nice!
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Veronica[/name] - great!
[name]Autumn[/name] [name]Naomi[/name] - love [name]Naomi[/name], [name]Autumn[/name] is kind of dated but beautiful (love the season), I don’t love the combo, so much m an dn.

Good luck!

[name]Clara[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] - I like this. It’s classy and feminine.
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] - [name]Amelia[/name] is growing on me and the combo flows nicely.
[name]Giselle[/name] [name]Sophie[/name] - I don’t like the name [name]Giselle[/name]. It just doesn’t sound pleasant to my ears. I think [name]Giselle[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] or [name]Natalia[/name] would flow better.
[name]Elena[/name] [name]Natalie[/name] - I like this. It’s nice.
[name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Gemma[/name] - I think this would flow better as [name]Gemma[/name] [name]Annabelle[/name].
[name]Eulalia[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name] - [name]Eulalia[/name] is a different name, therefore I like it because it sounds spunky. And the combo flows nicely.
[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Adele[/name] - I love [name]Charlotte[/name]!
[name]Antonia[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name] - [name]Love[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name], not a fan of [name]Antonia[/name].
[name]Julianne[/name] [name]Estella[/name] - [name]Julianne[/name] [name]Estelle[/name] would flow better.
[name]Victoria[/name] [name]Lillian[/name] - I’d do [name]Lillian[/name] [name]Victoria[/name], which flows better.
[name]Philippa[/name] “[name]Pippa[/name]” [name]Juliette[/name] - I like! [name]Juliet[/name] (I prefer this spelling) is a lovely name.
[name]Sylvie[/name] [name]Isabelle[/name] - Nice flow.
[name]Ada[/name] Kateri - Flows well.
[name]Mary[/name] [name]Agatha[/name] - Sounds really old.
[name]Johanna[/name] [name]Bridgette[/name] - I think [name]Bridgette[/name] [name]Johanna[/name] would be better.
[name]Josephine[/name] “[name]Effie[/name]” [name]Francesca[/name] - I like.
[name]Lucille[/name] “[name]Lucy[/name]” [name]Philomena[/name] - Nice.
[name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Magdalene[/name] - Also nice.
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Veronica[/name] - Nice.
[name]Autumn[/name] [name]Naomi[/name] - I dislike [name]Naomi[/name].

Thanks for replying. :slight_smile:

@ jesab - I think I really like [name]Juliette[/name] [name]Estella[/name] now that you say that :slight_smile: It does have a much better flow. I really, really like that Thanks so much! I am not sure about [name]Antonia[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name] either, I love [name]Antonia[/name] but I am not sure of [name]Seraphina[/name] anymore. The same goes for [name]Autumn[/name].

@ halfkoreangirl - I cannot do [name]Gemma[/name] [name]Annabelle[/name], because my Fiancee’s LN is [name]Young[/name] and that would make her initials [name]GAY[/name], not that there is anything wrong with that, there is just to much teasing potential. I like [name]Francesca[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] as well, I think the flow might be better this way too :slight_smile: Thanks!!!

Anyone [name]Else[/name]?

I like all of these - their the most unexpected combos and they have nice flow.

[name]Clara[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Elena[/name] [name]Natalie[/name] - I love [name]Elena[/name] [name]Sophie[/name]!
[name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Gemma[/name]
[name]Eulalia[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name]
[name]Antonia[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name]
[name]Julianne[/name] [name]Estella[/name]
[name]Victoria[/name] [name]Lillian[/name]
[name]Sylvie[/name] [name]Isabelle[/name]
[name]Ada[/name] Kateri - still love this one
[name]Josephine[/name] “[name]Effie[/name]” [name]Francesca[/name]
[name]Lucille[/name] [name]Philomena[/name]
[name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Magdalene[/name]
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Veronica[/name]

I think you have some beautiful name choices with the exception of “[name]Eulalia[/name]”. I’m not sure if it’s just because Im not a big fan of the name in general but I dont think “ooh lah lee ah” is an attractive sound and it’s a bit much when paired with [name]Emmeline[/name].

My votes go to any combo with [name]Genevieve[/name], [name]Josephine[/name], [name]Eleonore[/name] (spelling i like) [name]Sophie[/name], [name]Charlotte[/name] and [name]Sylvie[/name]. Also, thought you might like [name]Ghislaine[/name] with your taste.

I don’t pronounce [name]Eulalia[/name] “ooh -lah-lee-ah” I have only ever heard it pronounced “Yoo-[name]Lay[/name]-[name]Lee[/name]-[name]Ah[/name]” which is the pronunciation I would use.

It seems we have very similar taste in names! :slight_smile:

[name]Clara[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Love[/name] [name]Clara[/name] and [name]Genevieve[/name] separately, and love them even more together.
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] ([name]Mia[/name] would be the NN if one is used) I love [name]Amelia[/name] but its too popular for my liking. I’ve gone with Amélie as a less popular alternative. [name]Catherine[/name] is nice.
[name]Giselle[/name] [name]Sophie[/name] Prefer [name]Natalie[/name] with [name]Giselle[/name]. [name]Love[/name] [name]Giselle[/name], on my own list!
[name]Elena[/name] [name]Natalie[/name] Name of my DD#1. Perfection in my opinion. Prefer [name]Sophie[/name] with [name]Elena[/name]. Gorgeous!
[name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Gemma[/name] [name]Annabelle[/name] was once on my list. [name]Lovely[/name] alternative to the ever popular [name]Isabelle[/name].
[name]Eulalia[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name] Not too sure about [name]Eulalia[/name]. I can’t decide weather its pretty or too “try hard”. [name]Emmeline[/name] is beautiful.
[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Adele[/name] [name]Love[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name], dislike [name]Adele[/name].
[name]Antonia[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name] Dislike [name]Antonia[/name], [name]Love[/name] Serpahina. This combo is a little rhymey.
[name]Julianne[/name] [name]Estella[/name] I vastly prefer [name]Juliet[/name]/[name]Juliette[/name]. Nice combo though.
[name]Victoria[/name] [name]Lillian[/name] (could go [name]Lillian[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] as well) [name]Lovely[/name], especially with the nn [name]Tori[/name]. [name]Lillian[/name] is familiar and feminine. Like this.
[name]Philippa[/name] “[name]Pippa[/name]” [name]Juliette[/name] Really like this. [name]Philippa[/name] nn [name]Pippa[/name] is a favorite of mine.
[name]Sylvie[/name] [name]Isabelle[/name] Dislike [name]Sylvie[/name] as it comes across too middle aged. Dislike Isablle because of its popularity.
[name]Ada[/name] Kateri (pronounced Kuh-tery and is a very special name to me) I’m the biggest [name]Ada[/name] fan, but it never felt complete enough for me. When I was considering it for DD#2 I had it as a nn for [name]Adeline[/name]/[name]Adelaide[/name]. Kateri is sweet.
[name]Mary[/name] [name]Agatha[/name] [name]Mary[/name] is sweet and vintage, I strongly dislike [name]Agatha[/name]. [name]Don[/name]'t like the sound of this at all. I think [name]Mary[/name] needs a more modern middle name. Perhaps [name]Mary[/name] [name]Louisa[/name]/[name]Mary[/name] [name]Eloise[/name], [name]Mary[/name] [name]Lydia[/name], [name]Mary[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]?
[name]Johanna[/name] [name]Bridgette[/name] (could also be [name]Joanna[/name] [name]Bridgette[/name]) Dislike both of these.
[name]Josephine[/name] “[name]Effie[/name]” [name]Francesca[/name] As much as I want to like [name]Josephine[/name], I can’t. Not keen on [name]Francesca[/name] either.
[name]Lucille[/name] “[name]Lucy[/name]” [name]Philomena[/name] This is my name! [name]Lucy[/name] is great. Not too sure about [name]Philomena[/name]. My middle name is [name]Kate[/name] if that helps :wink:
[name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Magdalene[/name] Really pretty, especially loving [name]Magdelene[/name].
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Veronica[/name] [name]Love[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name], dislike [name]Veronica[/name].
[name]Autumn[/name] [name]Naomi[/name] [name]Autumn[/name] is really growing on me. [name]Naomi[/name] is pretty in the middle, and unexpected.

I really love a lot of these but my favorite by far is [name]Elena[/name] [name]Sophie[/name]! Other favorites were [name]Giselle[/name] [name]Natalie[/name], [name]Victoria[/name] [name]Lillian[/name] and [name]Clara[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name].
[name]Hope[/name] that helped, good luck!

Thanks so much lucykate219, your daughters names are stunning. I am loving the idea of switching the MNs and going with [name]Elena[/name] [name]Sophie[/name] and [name]Giselle[/name] [name]Natalie[/name] :slight_smile:

Anyone [name]Else[/name]?

I am closing this thread and starting a new one because I have made too many new changes :slight_smile:
