I think I’ve found it! I’ve been looking for a top contender for a while for a bbg and just haven’t found something that ticks every box. I had a long list of criteria I tell you…
- Must have family meaning (Preferably gives homage to my [name]Nana[/name], [name]Elizabeth[/name])
- Good meaning of name
- Nothing biblical (Not to offend you but I don’t come from a religious upbringing really and think it would be wrong to include God in my baby’s name)
- Preferred ending of A or start of A
- Consists an E preferably
- Not top 100
- Nods to my Scottish/English/Irish roots
- Nothing Unisex
If a name ticked all of these boxes I vowed it would be the one but I want to know what you think. The name is not on name berry but is on a few other sites and even if I did make it up I don’t think it sounds like a “kreative” name. So here it is…
It hits a favourite of mine that has started to climb the charts unfortunately but has [name]Beth[/name] in it for my nana. No meaning really but it you piece in together it means “Island pledged to God”. Now I know what your thinking. That’s a biblical name. However, I think the fact [name]Elizabeth[/name] is my nana’s name overrides the biblical undertones anyway! Consists both A and E. Quirky - no one else will have it, likely. Not top 100. Many nicknames ranging from popular-ish [name]Isla[/name], classic and down to earth [name]Beth[/name], grannyish [name]Betty[/name] and cutesy [name]Lala[/name]. It combines my Scottish roots on my dad’s side with [name]Isla[/name] and my mom’s english heritage of [name]Beth[/name]. And it sounds clearly feminine!
WDYT berries? Desperately want to hear what you think!! Is it “kreative”? Is it trying to hard? Does it even sound pretty? Am I too blissfully caught up in the fact it ticks all boxes to realize it’s butt ugly? HELP!! WDYT!
