After countless months of waiting and wondering, my husband and I are finally nearing the last few stages of our adoption. We are adopting an absolutely beautiful baby girl from [name]Brazil[/name], and in a few weeks, we will be flying down to my mother country to meet our precious girl, preform our homestay, and bring her back to the United States. We are literally ecstatic!!
The nursery’s all decked out, the supplies are all prepared, the house has been baby proofed! But, there’s still one thing left before we can get our daughter: a name! Here, at this critical stage, we’ve been having some troubles. (this will probably be long - sorry in advance!)
Our daughter was given the name Ev” at the orphanage because it means “life”, and she was so small when she was abandoned that many thought she wouldn’t survive. However, she has pulled through and is now almost 8 months and thriving! We actually love the name Ev”, but I am almost 100% positive that it will cause pronunciation problems in the United States. Its pronounced “EHV-ee”, like the word heavy without the ‘h’. We will either be using Ev” as her first or middle name. Either way, below are the other names we’re considering for either the first slot or the middle slot. My husband is from [name]India[/name], so we’re considering a couple of [name]Indian[/name] names, along with just names we like. Not all of them work with Ev” though, and none of them feel like “the one”
Thoughts, suggestions, and advice are all hugely appreciated!
Some of the combos make for pretty meaningful names: Ev” [name]Aziza[/name] would mean “beloved life” - Ev” [name]Indira[/name] would mean “beautiful life” - Ev” [name]Augusta[/name] would mean “magnificent life”. Again, thank you - all suggestions are welcome and greatly needed!
