'ello. [name]Long[/name] time lurker here!
Our baby, a little girl (!!!), is due in [name]March[/name]. We’ve agreed on a few names, but are not fired up about any of them. We have two sons, [name]Bishop[/name] [name]James[/name] and [name]Ulysses[/name] [name]George[/name], and our last name is a single syllable. Let’s say…[name]Smith[/name]?
Our stipulations are pretty tight. The name should be either Biblical or have a religious and/or mythological component/history (especially Greek/[name]Roman[/name]), and nothing crazy popular (although this is not a hard and fast rule). Abstract noun names are fine ([name]Grace[/name], [name]Hope[/name], etc). I personally don’t prefer girl names that end in ‘A’.
Here are some contenders, just so you’ve got a sense of what we like! We’re all over the place, really.
[name]Moira[/name] (do you, personally, pronounce this MORE uh, or MOY ruh? I prefer the first pronunciation, but S.O. pointed out people might pronounce it the second way. It’s the only name ending in ‘A’ I wouldn’t mind)
Actually, I take it back, names that end in “A” are okay, as long as the front is quite heavy-loaded? [name]Octavia[/name], [name]Demetria[/name], etc.
Oh, middle is pretty certainly [name]Aster[/name].
Honestly, if we had it our way, we’d name her Defiance [name]Rose[/name]. We like double barrel firsts. Maybe [name]Aster[/name] [name]Fae[/name]…? Now I’m just blathering on.
