  • Solene (so-LEHN) - French, solemnity: 3 (10%)

P.S. The surname is [name]Morgan[/name] if that makes a difference :slight_smile:

My favorite by far is [name]Selena[/name] - beautiful melodic sound, lovely written down, easy to pronounce and spell.
Second choice to [name]Selene[/name] but it’s not very close. I like the sound of [name]Selene[/name] but somehow the spelling looks incomplete to me
[name]Solana[/name] - it’s all right. I guess I don’t have a strong feeling one way or the other
[name]Solene[/name] - nmsaa. I think people would say so-lean and the meaning puts me off.

Definitely [name]Selena[/name]. [name]Selene[/name] is pretty but since it’s Greek it’s pronounced se-LEEN-ee, which would be pretty hard to enforce. [name]Solana[/name] seems pretty made-up… is it actually used as a name in Spanish-speaking countries? [name]Sol[/name]”ne is really pretty but the -lehn pronunciation would be really unintuitive without the accent on the E and from what I’ve heard, accents are a nightmare to deal with in a non-accent using environment.

Thank you Gwensmom :slight_smile: The meaning is the main drawback for me with [name]Solene[/name], it bothers me more than the pronunciation issues to be honest. And I worry it sounds a little like sullen?

I’m glad you like [name]Selena[/name] though :slight_smile: I genuinly can’t make my mind up right now so it’s very interesting to hear everyone’s opinions and see the votes :slight_smile: Looks like [name]Selene[/name] and [name]Selena[/name] are pretty even so far, although [name]Selene[/name] was winning for a long time!

[name]Hi[/name] [name]Iris[/name] [name]Rose[/name],

No I don’t believe [name]Solana[/name] is made up, it comes from the word Solano. I think it’s actual meaning is something like “sun facing place”. I know it’s a place name and surname in Spanish speaking countries, not sure about it’s first name use but I don’t live in Spain or speak Spanish so it’s not a huge issue to me! This is by no means a solid source of info, but the winner of the show The Voice, [name]Javier[/name] [name]Colon[/name], who’s mother is Puerto Rican and father is Dominican (and so I assume speaks Spanish? Not sure!) has a daughter called [name]Solana[/name]. As far as [name]Selene[/name] goes, I wouldn’t try to enforce the Greek pronunciation so it’s not an issue for me. I live in a very small town in [name]Wales[/name] where most people have the same names and so if anyone uses an unusual name, people pretty much just accept the pronunciation. Like I know a [name]Helena[/name] (he-[name]LAY[/name]-nuh) and she has no trouble.

I’ve consider the majority of the names on your list and discarded them for one reason or another (partner doesn’t like them, I don’t love them, etc). [name]Sisel[/name] is interesting but I’m not keen on the “sis” part. The others aren’t really my cup of tea but thanks. I’m pretty set on it being one of these 4 names now since I feel like I’ve considered almost every S name in the world! Lol.
