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.

[name]Aria[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name]
[name]Ivy[/name]
[name]Nyx[/name]
[name]Keira[/name]
[name]Cara[/name]
[name]Winter[/name]
[name]Anya[/name]
[name]Nika[/name]
[name]London[/name]
[name]Echo[/name]

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:
[name]Aura[/name]
[name]Sakura[/name]
[name]Dasha[/name]
[name]Lyra[/name]
[name]Aiko[/name]
[name]Nala[/name]
[name]June[/name]
[name]Clea[/name]
[name]Nova[/name]
[name]Thora[/name]
[name]Jazz[/name]

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:
[name]Linnea[/name]
[name]Bryn[/name]
[name]Luca[/name]
[name]Lyra[/name]
[name]Calla[/name]

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!
