Sassy Southern Ladies

After a lot of back and forth, DH and I have FINALLY decided we’ll start trying for our first at the end of this year! Given that we still have to wait awhile due to work commitments and my sister’s wedding, I’ve been distracting myself by updating our name lists and would love some feedback from you all.

The overall vibe we’re going for is something sassy and southern, but we have mixed views as to the best way to reach that end. I’d love to get your thoughts on what you like/dislike, anything that doesn’t seem to fit, overall vibe the names give, etc.

Last name is R0bins0n

[name_u]Love[/name_u]:
[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] - I love the nickname [name_u]Scout[/name_u], and I think [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] ages well.
[name_u]Juniper[/name_u] - Not sure if this fits your southern theme, however it’s a very nice name
[name_u]Sutton[/name_u]
[name_f]Greer[/name_f]

[name_f]Georgia[/name_f]
[name_f]Magnolia[/name_f]
[name_f]Adelaide[/name_f]
[name_f]Alice[/name_f]
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] - I know several [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]'s who go by [name_u]Charlie[/name_u], and I think that would fit your southern tomboy ish theme.
[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f]
[name_f]Corinne[/name_f]
[name_f]Lavender[/name_f] - I think this would make a cute middle name.

Dislike:
[name_f]Tallulah[/name_f]
[name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] / [name_f]Delilah[/name_f]
[name_f]Poppy[/name_f] - Reminds me too much of “papi”
[name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] - I can see the appeal because of [name_m]Shakespeare[/name_m], but every time I see it I think pedophelia.
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f]
[name_u]Collins[/name_u]
[name_f]Olive[/name_f]

I love [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] for a Southern girl! [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u] would make such an awesome combo. [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] is another of my favorites, and [name_f]Corinne[/name_f].

I really like [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] but don’t think of it as Southern - more Germanic. I’ve never liked [name_f]India[/name_f]/[name_u]Indiana[/name_u] - especially the first just comes off as weirdly colonialist to me. At any rate more British than Southern. A lot of your surnamey choices from your “streamlined/chic” list ([name_u]Sutton[/name_u], [name_f]Greer[/name_f], [name_m]Adler[/name_m], [name_u]Collins[/name_u], [name_u]Sloane[/name_u], [name_u]Bellamy[/name_u]) would sound great as middle names - it is a tradition in a lot of Southern families to make the child’s middle the mother’s maiden name, and it sounds like that - but I’m not a fan of them as firsts. Same with the naturey ones - I only really think [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] is substantial enough to stand as a first.

I think a girly first name with a streamlined middle name would be cute and spunky
Love-
Magnolia - reminds me of the old musical Showboat. One of the main characters was Magnolia “Noli”
Adelaide -Old fashioned and spunky
Scarlett - pretty and southern
India - a character from gone with the wind
Rosalie - cute
Charlotte - classic

Combo ideas:
Charlotte Wren
Delilah Collins
Adelaide Sage
India Wren
Magnolia Sloane
Rosalie Sutton
Scarlett Mae

Top Combo’s IMHO

  1. [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f] [name_u]Collins[/name_u]
    2)[name_m]Adler[/name_m] [name_f]Corinne[/name_f]
    3)[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u]

My own weird suggestion [name_f]Briar[/name_f] [name_f]Linette[/name_f]

[name_u]Love[/name_u], love, love [name_u]Collins[/name_u], [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f], and [name_f]Georgia[/name_f]. Some ideas to add to your list:
[name_f]Mallory[/name_f]
[name_f]Savannah[/name_f]
[name_u]Kennedy[/name_u]
[name_u]McKinley[/name_u]

I just put the names I like under each category:

Oh my goodness! I love your lists. I like a similar style of names so it’s really hard for me to say anything without sounding repetitive as I really do love so many.

Some quick combos…

[name_u]Sloane[/name_u]
[name_u]Sutton[/name_u]

My Favorites:

Proper/Girly
[name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] ([name_f]Nola[/name_f]) - not a huge fan of [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] but I love the nn [name_f]Nola[/name_f]!
[name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] (Lady)
[name_f]Tallulah[/name_f]
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f]

Streamlined/Chic
[name_u]Blair[/name_u]
[name_f]Ivy[/name_f]
[name_u]Wren[/name_u]

Others/Random
[name_f]Maisie[/name_f]

I’d say:

As for Proper, I especially love [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f], [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f], [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f], [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f], and [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f], though I really like all. As for Chic, I love [name_f]Ivy[/name_f], but also like [name_f]Olive[/name_f] and [name_u]Wren[/name_u]. In Others, I love [name_f]Elowen[/name_f] and like [name_f]Corinne[/name_f].

Some combos:

[name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u] [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f]
[name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_f]Elowen[/name_f]
[name_f]Dahlia[/name_f] [name_f]Olive[/name_f] [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f]

My favorites would probably be [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f], [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] (nn scout), [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] (and I personally love the nickname [name_m]Chuck[/name_m] for [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] but [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] or just plain [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] is wonderful as well) , [name_u]Blair[/name_u], and [name_f]Ivy[/name_f].

I also really like [name_u]Sutton[/name_u], [name_f]Georgia[/name_f], [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f], [name_f]India[/name_f], and [name_u]Wren[/name_u].

I think [name_f]Maisie[/name_f], [name_u]Sloan[/name_u], [name_u]Bellamy[/name_u], and [name_f]Lavender[/name_f] are also great, but more as middle names.

[name_u]Love[/name_u] the combos - [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] [name_u]Blair[/name_u], Talulah [name_u]Collins[/name_u] and [name_f]Annabel[/name_f] [name_f]Ivy[/name_f].

Also like [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] and [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f]

I love [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f], and it goes perfectly with your last name [name_f]IMO[/name_f]! [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] is an awesome combo.
