My daughter’s name is [name]Dahlia[/name], and we love it and it fits her to a tee. In fact, if our second child is female, I’m already feeling the pressure of giving her a name just as beautiful and perfect. (A boy will be a [name]Junior[/name].)
On the nameberry entry for [name]Dahlia[/name], it says the name has a bit of a “lah-di-dah air,” which frankly, I like. [name]Dahlia[/name] sounds like a name for a little lady who goes to ballet class and wears matching [name]Lilly[/name] Pulitzer sundresses. And if [name]Dahlia[/name] ends up being a tomboy (and she’s already showing a few signs ) the juxtaposition with the girly-girl name is just too cute.
Also… I am not afraid to boldly go for a flower or botanical theme! On the other hand, it’s not a requirement.
With that in mind, let’s play around with some “la-di-dah” sister names for [name]Dahlia[/name].
Here are a few preliminary thoughts:
[name]Giselle[/name] (too much like the model?)
I like [name]Delphine[/name], but no way my conservative husband will go for that! :roll:
I appreciate your thoughts and creativity!
