Thoughts on our name list!

DH and I have very different styles so finding a name we both like is difficult. We thought of taking turns naming kids, but we have come to the conclusion that we really want this to be a joint effort, something we both will love. It was easy to choose a boy name for us, if this baby (our first) is a boy his name with be [name]Fox[/name] [name]Ronin[/name] (like [name]Ronan[/name], but DH preferred the Japanese spelling). But girl names are so much harder. So far, these are the names we both like.


Any thoughts on these names? Suggestions? Thanks so much!

[name]Aria[/name]- [name]Love[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name]- I’m not a fan
[name]Ivy[/name]- Really like
[name]Nyx[/name]- Really cool, but if you plan to use [name]Fox[/name] for a future son I think they are a bit similar
[name]Keira[/name]- One of my favourite names! Really pretty and not too common
[name]Cara[/name]- I like it but I prefer [name]Keira[/name]
[name]Winter[/name]- [name]Love[/name] it with the nn [name]Winnie[/name] :slight_smile:
[name]Anya[/name]- Not my style
[name]Nika[/name]- I really like this one
[name]London[/name]- A bit trendy
[name]Echo[/name]- Not my favourite, but could be good in the middle spot

My favourites are [name]Aria[/name], [name]Ivy[/name], [name]Keira[/name], [name]Winter[/name] and [name]Nika[/name].

A few ideas:

Good luck :slight_smile:

[name]Aria[/name] – I like how this name is only 4 letters but 3 syllables, though I do think its going to see a rise in popularity
[name]Quinn[/name] – Q names are great, and this one is familiar but still has that fun side because of the odd letter
[name]Ivy[/name] – One of my favourite nature names
[name]Nyx[/name] – I met a Nyxy once who was a man, I thought it sounded much more like a girls name and [name]Nyx[/name] too
[name]Keira[/name] – Not a fan
[name]Cara[/name] --I knew a [name]Cara[/name] growing up who was a terror, so I’ve got bad associations
[name]Winter[/name] – Growing on me a lot lately, agree with pp, [name]Winnie[/name] is a fun nn
[name]Anya[/name] – Reminds me of [name]Buffy[/name] the Vampire Slayer
[name]Nika[/name] – [name]Don[/name]'t like as well as some of your other options
[name]London[/name] – Too hipster
[name]Echo[/name] – Not a word name I care for much

I think [name]Ivy[/name] and [name]Quinn[/name] both go with [name]Fox[/name] best.

I do one possible suggestion-- [name]Joya[/name]-- (pn [name]Joy[/name]-ah) not quite sure if its your style but I once knew a girl named that and it might be nice?

PP also suggested [name]Lyra[/name], which I second.

[name]Aria[/name] – love it!
[name]Quinn[/name] – leave it for the boys (I love the name, but not on a girl)
[name]Ivy[/name] – cute name, but for some reason I have never really liked it
[name]Nyx[/name] – very fun!
[name]Keira[/name] – love it!
[name]Cara[/name] – like it, but [name]Keira[/name] is better
[name]Winter[/name] – really like
[name]Anya[/name] – I used to like it, but after saying it out loud a few times, it lost its appeal to me
[name]Nika[/name] – darling!
[name]London[/name] – like, don’t love
[name]Echo[/name] – ok

[name]Aria[/name] – love
[name]Quinn[/name] – love, but the Glee association should be considered
[name]Ivy[/name] – love
[name]Nyx[/name] – pass for me, since I love [name]NYX[/name] makeup
[name]Keira[/name] – not my personal fave
[name]Cara[/name] – love
[name]Winter[/name] – the success of this name, I think, hinges on the MN
[name]Anya[/name] – love
[name]Nika[/name] – reminds me of La Femme [name]Nikita[/name]
[name]London[/name] – if you have a connection to the city
[name]Echo[/name] – not my personal fave

So much to love!

Some suggestions:

love [name]Ivy[/name] and [name]Winter[/name]

I love [name]Lyra[/name], but DH doesn’t. Thanks for all the suggestions! [name]Echo[/name] is out and [name]Nyx[/name] has been moved to the middle name list. My favorites right now are [name]Winter[/name] and [name]Nika[/name], DH likes [name]Cara[/name] and [name]London[/name] best. Any of them would be great. I guess it will just be a matter of seeing what sounds and feels right? Our boy name just feels so prefect, I really want that with a girl name too!
