Too excited to name! Please help us focus and think :)

We got happy news very recently. I don’t remember the last time I felt this excited and nervous about life! It has proven to be too much for my brain, which has already given up and moved somewhere warm and sunny.

It’s too early to know if we’re having a boy or a girl, and probably too early to do much of anything. We’ll wait a while before telling our friends and family, but I want all the names, every name, and I want them now.

[name_f]My[/name_f] partner made a simple request. That we use middle name [name_f]Gabriella[/name_f] or [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u] for his late mom, so of course wish granted. We’re very lost on boy names, but I already made a list of girl names that shrinks and grows by the minute.

[name_f]Do[/name_f] you have any advice, comments, observations or critique on these?

[name_u]Ever[/name_u] or Everil (Everil was suggested to us by a friendly stranger, never heard it before. I looked it up and it was the name of a British [name_m]Saint[/name_m]. As non-Brits, non-Christians it seems a little out of reach, but I loved it at first sight)
[name_u]Briar[/name_u]
[name_u]Blue[/name_u]
[name_u]Wren[/name_u]
[name_f]Pia[/name_f]
[name_f]Tala[/name_f]
[name_u]Rue[/name_u]
[name_f]Faye[/name_f]
[name_u]Sage[/name_u]
[name_f]Nola[/name_f]
[name_u]Bryn[/name_u]

Her|his surname will be a little long, as we’ll hyphenate his and mine, so I’m focusing on very short names.

Off of your list, my favorites are [name_f]Nola[/name_f], [name_u]Rue[/name_u], and [name_u]Wren[/name_u]. They would all go nicely with [name_f]Gabriella[/name_f] (although I love the boy’s name [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u] so much that I’m hoping you have the chance to give it to a boy).

It looks like you like simple and sweet nature and word inspired names, so I’ll try and suggest a couple similar ones in case you are still looking!

Yes, love me some word names. [name_f]My[/name_f] SO actually has a word/animal name that was weird when he was a kid but now it’s all the rage. I would love to continue that pattern of word/nature for our baby.

Congratulations!

My favourite name from your list is [name_u]Wren[/name_u], I think it will sound very nice with [name_f]Gabriella[/name_f], which is a beautiful name on it’s own.

If you like the sound of [name_u]Ever[/name_u], I think [name_u]Everly[/name_u] is a good suggestion. I recently discovered this name, and I think it sounds beautiful with many names. [name_u]Everly[/name_u] [name_f]Gabriella[/name_f] sounds nice when spoken aloud. If you used [name_u]Ever[/name_u] [name_f]Gabriella[/name_f], it sounds too rhymey, but if you like that then go for it.

Leo

Luca

Micah

Jonah

I’ve taken notes (literally) on your suggestions, and think we’ll embrace [name_u]Dove[/name_u] and [name_f]Cleo[/name_f]. One of our baby’s surnames begins with L, so we’ll have to practice saying [name_f]Lilac[/name_f] and [name_f]Liv[/name_f] outloud, and writing it on paper to see how it works. Since writing this post late last night I began to wonder about [name_f]Tala[/name_f] and [name_f]Nola[/name_f] precisely because of this :confused:.

Thank you for the bonus boy ideas :bouquet:.
