Our first list of combos for our darling baby girl :)!

Hello again, Berries!
I just wanted to say: WOW! All your amazing help the other day on our first list was greatly appreciated by my husband and I, and we’ve taken everything you’ve said into consideraton. We sent the last day creating and nixing combinations of first and middle named for our little girl, and would love to hear your opinions on them!

Our [name]Little[/name] Bean, as we’ve been affectionately calling her, is our first child! My large Italian family is beyond happy to add another niece/cousin/grand-daughter to the mix, but they’ve also been very vocal about which names they like and don’t like (ex. My mama said just yesterday, “What about [name]Cipriana[/name]? Bellissima!”). My husband’s side of the family are Hawaiian natives, and are very laid-back, but I’d love to honor his culture somehow. We have two families to please.

So here’s The List (so far):
[name]Lucia[/name] [name]Leilani[/name] ([name]Lucia[/name] is my family’s favorite, and we’re pronouncing it as loo-see-ah)
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] (I’m in love with the name [name]Fiona[/name], hubby hasn’t come around yet!)
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Leilani[/name] [name]Nova[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Anneliese[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Ailani[/name]
[name]Serena[/name] [name]Blossom[/name] (Hubby came up with this one all on his own!)
[name]Daphne[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name]
[name]Lavender[/name] [name]Mei[/name] (or [name]Mae[/name], perhaps)
[name]Willa[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Flora[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] (I love [name]Flora[/name]!)
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name]

A few other names we like but don’t know what to do with: [name]Lilou[/name] (Hawaiian feel without being [name]Lilo[/name] from [name]Lilo[/name] and Stitch), [name]Alba[/name], [name]Athena[/name], [name]Alina[/name]

I know it’s a lot and our list is kind of all over the place, but we could really use your help!
[name]Feel[/name] free to mix and match, and suggestions are welcomed with open arms!
Can’t wait to hear your opinions! Thank you so much!

Am loving [name]Lucia[/name] [name]Leilani[/name], definately my favoriate from your list

[name]Serena[/name] [name]Blossom[/name]
[name]Lavender[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Flora[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]

I love…

[name]Lucia[/name] [name]Leilani[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Anneliese[/name]
[name]Willa[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

My favourites are:
[name]Lucia[/name] [name]Leilani[/name]
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Lavender[/name] [name]Mei[/name] ( please don’t change it to [name]Mae[/name]. [name]Mei[/name] looks lovely.)

I really love every name on that list! Congrats on your baby girl!

I like:
[name]Lucia[/name] [name]Leilani[/name]- I love [name]Lucia[/name] pronounced loo-SEE-ah, especially because you could shorten it to [name]Lucy[/name]! I think I would prefer it with a different middle, though, to avoid LL alliteration.
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Anneliese[/name]- I love all forms of [name]Rose[/name], especially just the name itself (I have a bad association, but I love the name, so I personally would have to use a variant) and [name]Anneliese[/name] is very pretty!
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Ailani[/name]- I really like [name]Genevieve[/name], and [name]Ailani[/name] is unusual but VERY pretty!
I like all of them, however, so your little girl is guaranteed to have a wonderful name.

[name]Mae[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name] is beauty. :slight_smile:

[name]Lucia[/name] [name]Leilani[/name] is amazing! The alliteration is beautiful and lilting, without being corny as it can sometimes be. It definitely works in this case. I love both names individually, but even more together, and both cultures are honoured equally!

Also, you get cute nn’s like [name]Lucy[/name]/[name]Lucie[/name], [name]Lula[/name], [name]Lulu[/name], [name]Lou[/name], [name]Leila[/name] or [name]Lani[/name].

I also really like [name]Serena[/name], [name]Genevieve[/name], [name]Nova[/name] (as a middle), [name]Anneliese[/name], [name]Ailani[/name], [name]Magnolia[/name], [name]Lavender[/name], [name]Mei[/name], [name]Willa[/name], [name]Jane[/name], [name]Seraphina[/name] and [name]Flora[/name], but do love the idea of honouring both cultures equally.

Maybe: [name]Serena[/name] [name]Mei[/name], [name]Ailani[/name] [name]Nova[/name], [name]Leilani[/name] [name]Nova[/name], [name]Flora[/name] [name]Mei[/name], [name]Mirabella[/name] [name]Mei[/name], [name]Angelica[/name] [name]Mei[/name], [name]Aria[/name] [name]Mei[/name], [name]Aria[/name] [name]Leilani[/name], [name]Magnolia[/name] [name]Mei[/name]?

Good luck! You have some really fab names :slight_smile:

[name]Lucky[/name] baby! Those are all pretty names.

[name]Lucia[/name] [name]Leilani[/name] - I like it. I don’t mind the alliteration.
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] - love it. I don’t like [name]Pearl[/name] as a first name but I think it’s a great middle name.
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] - love it -
[name]Leilani[/name] [name]Nova[/name] - gorgeous.
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Anneliese[/name] - I think I’d prefer [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Rose[/name], but either way it’s good.
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Ailani[/name] - terrific
[name]Serena[/name] [name]Blossom[/name] - wonderful. [name]Blossom[/name] as a first name is too much for me, but as a middle name it’s good.
[name]Daphne[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name] - it’s nice.
[name]Lavender[/name] [name]Mei[/name] (or [name]Mae[/name], perhaps) that’s pretty.
[name]Willa[/name] [name]Jane[/name] - not my favorite, but I like the combination.
[name]Flora[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] - like it a lot.
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name] - I like [name]Seraphina[/name] [name]Mae[/name] better but [name]Mae[/name] is nice.

[name]Lilou[/name], [name]Alba[/name], [name]Athena[/name], [name]Alina[/name].

I’ll just make a few other combinations - but yours are great.

[name]Alina[/name] [name]Mae[/name].
[name]Athena[/name] [name]Leilani[/name]
[name]Leilani[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Seraphina[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name]
[name]Serena[/name] [name]Lavender[/name]

my faves are [name]Lucia[/name] [name]Leilani[/name] and [name]Serena[/name] [name]Blossom[/name]

Thank you all so much so far!
[name]Lucia[/name] [name]Leilani[/name] is a same that would honor both sides of the family, and although I like the alliteration, I’m not sold on [name]Lucia[/name].
My husband is really loving [name]Serena[/name] right now. He came up with [name]Serena[/name] [name]Blossom[/name] all on his own, and I think it’s beautiful.
I really love both [name]Fiona[/name] combos we have.
And [name]Lavender[/name] [name]Mei[/name] is also one of our favorites right now.
But otherwise, we’re all over the place!

I would love to hear more of your opinions :)!
Thank you again !

I really love [name]Serena[/name] [name]Blossom[/name] it is definitely my favorite off your list! [name]Rose[/name] [name]Anneliese[/name], [name]Fiona[/name] [name]Pearl[/name], & [name]Flora[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] are runners up…you really can’t go wrong with any of these. :slight_smile:

[name]Lucia[/name] [name]Leilani[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name]
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] - I think I’m with your husband on this one, not a fan of [name]Fiona[/name]… I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] though.
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] - Nope
[name]Leilani[/name] [name]Nova[/name] - I love [name]Leilani[/name]… [name]How[/name] about [name]Leilani[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Anneliese[/name] - Nice
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Ailani[/name] - Nope
[name]Serena[/name] [name]Blossom[/name] - Nice
[name]Daphne[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name] - Nope, too floral for me
[name]Lavender[/name] [name]Mei[/name] - Like… I also like [name]Mai[/name] [name]Lavender[/name]
[name]Willa[/name] [name]Jane[/name] - [name]Love[/name] [name]Willa[/name], not [name]Jane[/name]…
[name]Flora[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] -[name]Love[/name] [name]Flora[/name]… Not [name]Genevieve[/name]… [name]Flora[/name] [name]Mae[/name] would be beautiful
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name] - [name]Lovely[/name]

Some other ideas… Mixing up your current list

[name]Lucia[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Leilani[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Willa[/name] [name]Leilani[/name]
[name]Serena[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Blossom[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Pearl[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name]
[name]Flora[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Leilani[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]

[name]Lucia[/name] [name]Leilani[/name] - I think this actually pulls off the whole alliterate thing quite nicely, although I’m not much a fan of either.
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] - I’ve never been such a fan of [name]Fiona[/name], and I typically don’t like [name]Pearl[/name] although in this combo I think it’s sorta cute.
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] - I don’t know how well these go together.
[name]Leilani[/name] [name]Nova[/name] - I like [name]Nova[/name] in the mn spot, it’s cute! I’m not sure about the whole -ni No- thing though.
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Anneliese[/name] - I think [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Rose[/name] is much prettier, but they do sound nice together.
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Ailani[/name] - I think this is beautiful! Nice classic sound to it without being boring.
[name]Serena[/name] [name]Blossom[/name] - It’s a littler hippie, especially in comparison to you other names, but I’m feeling it.
[name]Daphne[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name] - Wow. It hits me in an odd way. It’s quite striking… Modern but old… I like it, but I don’t feel like I should.
[name]Lavender[/name] [name]Mei[/name] (or [name]Mae[/name], perhaps) - My favourite of your’s so far. I think it’s beautiful. I prefer [name]Mei[/name] to [name]Mae[/name].
[name]Willa[/name] [name]Jane[/name] - Classic beauty.
[name]Flora[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] - It has potential. Have you considered [name]Fleur[/name] or [name]Fauna[/name]?
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name] - I think this is pretty sounding, but it might be a little fad-ish. I’d make sure you really love this if you use it or you might regret it in the future.

My Favorites:
[name]Lucia[/name] [name]Leilani[/name] ([name]Lucia[/name] [name]Lea[/name] was the name of my godmother so I think it’s gorgeous)
[name]Leilani[/name] [name]Nova[/name]
[name]Serena[/name] [name]Blossom[/name] (Not bad for a hubby’s pick)
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name] (I love classic [name]Mae[/name] paired with more trendy [name]Seraphina[/name].)

I think [name]Mae[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name] might be my favorite:)

I really like the name [name]Mae[/name] and [name]Nova[/name]. [name]Mae[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name] is my favorite!

Maybe some other suggestions:

[name]Mae[/name] [name]Isabelle[/name]
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Leilani[/name] Milou
[name]Flora[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]
[name]Flora[/name] [name]Amelie[/name]
[name]Lilly[/name] [name]Mae[/name] [name]Isabelle[/name]

[name]Fleur[/name] is also a flower name.

I love [name]Flora[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] although could never use here in the UK as [name]Flora[/name] is a brand of margarine…hope that doesn’t put you off. However all the names are beautiful! I like [name]Daphne[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name] too.

[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] is gorgeous!!!

I think [name]Cipriana[/name] is gorgeous and it is a great Italian name, but it does have a Hawaiian feel to it because I think of citrus fruit when I hear the name. From your list I really like:

[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Anneliese[/name]
[name]Serena[/name] [name]Blossom[/name]-love this one!
[name]Daphne[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name]
[name]Lavender[/name] Me
[name]Willa[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Flora[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name]

Some more ideas. I chose names I feel have an Italian/Hawaiian vibe. I hope this helps:

[name]Anela[/name] ([name]Angela[/name] is Italian)
[name]Kamila[/name] ([name]Camilla[/name] is Italian)
Kaniela ([name]Daniela[/name] is Italian)
Kapua (a Hawaiian flower name, but Capua is the name of a famous city in [name]Italy[/name])
[name]Kina[/name] ([name]Gina[/name] is Italian)
Kona (name of a wind but could also be the Hawaiian form of [name]Donna[/name])
Kulia ([name]Giulia[/name] is Italian)
[name]Lana[/name] (used in many languages, including Italian and Hawaiian)
[name]Lea[/name] (again, used in many languages, including Italian and Hawaiian)
[name]Lilia[/name] (used in Hawaiian and Italian, means “lily”)
[name]Luana[/name] (used in Hawaiian, also used in [name]Italy[/name])
[name]Luka[/name] (Hawaiian form of [name]Ruth[/name] and Italian form of [name]Lucas[/name])
[name]Melia[/name] (used in Hawaiian & Italian)
[name]Mika[/name]'ele (Hawaiian form of [name]Michelle[/name], sounds like the Italian, [name]Michele[/name])

Everyone! Thank you so much!
If you have any other suggestions, please let us know :)!

I like how [name]Lucia[/name] [name]Leilani[/name] sounds.
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] is gorgeous!
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Ailani[/name] is cute as well.

But [name]Genevieve[/name] and [name]Lucia[/name] are high on my lists of favorites anyhow so I’m really biased. I do really love [name]Fiona[/name] as well but am less likely to use it myself.

The only thing of your list is that you’re blending the two cultures together in a name. Cultures that aren’t even remotely close, so the combos may take a little getting used to. This is not a bad thing, it’s just something I’m pointing out not to be discouraged if they aren’t thrilled by your choices. If they don’t like it at first they will very likely come around after a bit.

Heck, that applies to every name in existence as far as extended family meddling is concerned. I would focus on what you and your husband love more. :slight_smile:
