We have 2 names,a compromise and we need new ideas!

We have 3 names in our girl list: [name]Elisa[/name], [name]Iris[/name] and [name]Cleo[/name]. I’m feeling very partial towards [name]Elisa[/name] (eh-[name]LEE[/name]-suh) but family, friends and husband think it’s a boring name.

[name]Iris[/name] is my husband’s favorite but I think it’s corny (no offense to anyone with this name!). Generally, I don’t like flower names.

The compromise name is [name]Cleo[/name]. We both like it but we’re not crazy about it and I get the feeling we can do better.

What do you think? Any ideas for simple and short girl names? Our kids have a hyphenated name so we’re always looking for short and quirky.

Big siblings are [name]Levi[/name] and [name]Tess[/name].

Thank you for reading!

I really like [name]Cleo[/name]! I feel like we “settled” on our name as it wasn’t my top choice or my husband’s-but it’s grown on both of us. At this point, I’d say it is our number one. The same thing may happen for you!

[name]Levi[/name], [name]Tess[/name] and …

Names like [name]Elise[/name], [name]Cleo[/name] and [name]Iris[/name] :
[name]Eliza[/name] (more pizazzy version of [name]Elise[/name]?)
[name]Flora[/name] (flowery, but not a flower …)

Good luck!

I like [name]Elisa[/name], and I think it fits better with [name]Levi[/name] and [name]Tess[/name] than your other 2 choices. [name]How[/name] can they say it’s boring? I’m not great at suggestions, sorry, but there are plenty of Berries who can help! Good luck!

I like [name]Elisa[/name] (or even [name]Eliza[/name] might sound like a better match) and [name]Cleo[/name] the best! :slight_smile:

I dont care for [name]Elisa[/name], mainly because the [name]Lisa[/name] part sounds so dated to me. I think [name]Cleo[/name] and [name]Iris[/name] are great names, but I prefer [name]Iris[/name].
