Stumped on a girl name

Our little girl is due in [name_u]August[/name_u], and we still aren’t sure about a name. We already have a son [name_u]Owen[/name_u] [name_u]Reid[/name_u], and our last name starts with B if that helps. So far we’re leaning towards:

[name_f]Stella[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] (we mostly like the nn [name_f]Evie[/name_f], but are open to other names for that nn)
[name_f]Elle[/name_f] (which DH likes but sounds more like a nn to me)
[name_f]Cecilia[/name_f]
[name_u]Reese[/name_u]

I also like [name_f]Sera[/name_f] but I feel like her name would always be misspelled. We haven’t found a name that feels like “the one,” yet, so other suggestions welcome!! Thanks- [name_m]AB[/name_m]

[name_f]Sera[/name_f] like [name_f]Sarah[/name_f]? I think some people pronounce [name_f]Sara[/name_f] like [name_f]Sera[/name_f] and some are pronouncing it Saharh.

I like [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] the best. I suggest [name_f]Valerie[/name_f], [name_f]Marjorie[/name_f], [name_f]Sabrina[/name_f], [name_f]Georgina[/name_f], [name_f]Gillian[/name_f], [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f], [name_f]Sabina[/name_f]…

[name_m]How[/name_m] about [name_f]Geneva[/name_f] instead of [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f]? It sounds a bit more playful, perhaps, and I think it’s lovely and rarely heard. You could still use NN [name_f]Evie[/name_f] or [name_f]Neva[/name_f] is pretty, too! I quite like [name_u]Owen[/name_u] and [name_f]Cecily[/name_f], too. [name_f]Cecelia[/name_f] is lovely, but again, [name_f]Cecily[/name_f] seems a bit more lively. [name_f]Serena[/name_f] would be a lovely choice, too, and you could call her [name_f]Sera[/name_f] as a NN. I like that! My great-grandmother’s name was [name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Serena[/name_f], always said together like that, and I have always thought she was beautifully named! Good luck!

I like [name_f]Stella[/name_f], [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f], and [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] the best. [name_u]Reese[/name_u] seems like a completely different style to me. What sound does your surname end with? [name_m]How[/name_m] many syll
[name_f]Soraya[/name_f] (kinda like [name_f]Sera[/name_f]), [name_f]Sarina[/name_f], [name_f]Bryony[/name_f], [name_f]Camellia[/name_f], [name_f]Camille[/name_f], [name_f]Camilla[/name_f], [name_u]Blair[/name_u], [name_f]Blythe[/name_f], [name_f]Etta[/name_f], [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] (nickname [name_f]Elle[/name_f]), [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f], [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f], [name_f]Roxana[/name_f], [name_f]Margot[/name_f], [name_f]Junia[/name_f], [name_f]Estelle[/name_f], [name_f]Miriam[/name_f], [name_f]Esther[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], [name_f]Coralie[/name_f], [name_f]Coraline[/name_f], [name_f]Viola[/name_f], [name_f]Vera[/name_f], [name_f]Nova[/name_f], [name_f]Harriet[/name_f], [name_f]Iris[/name_f], [name_f]Jeanette[/name_f], [name_f]Henrietta[/name_f], [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f], [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f], [name_f]Gemma[/name_f], [name_f]Celia[/name_f], [name_f]Cecily[/name_f], [name_f]Celestia[/name_f], [name_f]Claudia[/name_f], [name_f]Antonia[/name_f], [name_f]Antoinette[/name_f], [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u], [name_f]Eveline[/name_f], [name_f]Adeline[/name_f], [name_f]Adalina[/name_f], [name_f]Adalia[/name_f], [name_f]Aida[/name_f], [name_f]Penelope[/name_f], [name_f]Pearl[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u], [name_f]Regina[/name_f], [name_f]Naomi[/name_f], [name_f]Ruth[/name_f], [name_f]Renata[/name_f], [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f], [name_f]Rosetta[/name_f], [name_f]Therese[/name_f], [name_f]Teresa[/name_f], [name_f]Tessa[/name_f], [name_f]Thessaly[/name_f], [name_u]Patrice[/name_u], [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f], [name_f]Laurel[/name_f], [name_f]Lois[/name_f], [name_f]Louise[/name_f], [name_f]Louisa[/name_f], [name_f]Lucille[/name_f], [name_f]Lillian[/name_f], [name_f]Virginia[/name_f], [name_f]Georgia[/name_f], [name_f]Georgiana[/name_f], [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f], [name_f]Lynnette[/name_f], [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f], [name_f]Collette[/name_f],

You have a lovely list. :slight_smile: I think my favourites are [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] and [name_f]Elle[/name_f]…

Suggestions:
[name_f]Estelle[/name_f] - this way you get to call her both [name_f]Stella[/name_f] and [name_f]Elle[/name_f].
[name_f]Serena[/name_f]
[name_f]Celia[/name_f]
[name_f]Cosette[/name_f]
[name_f]Elena[/name_f]
[name_f]Evelina[/name_f]
[name_f]Bianca[/name_f]
[name_f]Viola[/name_f]

Well I have an [name_u]Owen[/name_u] and a [name_f]Stella[/name_f], though [name_f]Stella[/name_f] is a cat and I didn’t put any thought into their names matching. :slight_smile: But I love those 2…

I also like the sound of [name_u]Owen[/name_u] and [name_u]Reese[/name_u], as [name_u]Rhys[/name_u] is one of my top names for a brother for my [name_u]Owen[/name_u]. However, [name_u]Reese[/name_u] is cute, but nowhere near as lovely as [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f], [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f], and [name_f]Stella[/name_f] in my opinion.

I definitely like the idea of [name_f]Evie[/name_f] with [name_u]Owen[/name_u]. [name_m]How[/name_m] about [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f]? Or maybe [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] nn [name_f]Vivi[/name_f]?

Names I like with [name_u]Owen[/name_u]: [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f], [name_f]Matilda[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f], [name_f]Mila[/name_f], [name_f]Mara[/name_f], [name_f]Penelope[/name_f], [name_f]Margot[/name_f], [name_f]Thea[/name_f], [name_f]Hattie[/name_f], [name_f]Maisie[/name_f], [name_f]Lila[/name_f], [name_f]Lily[/name_f], [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f], [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f], [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f].

Good luck!
