What do we think of Romy or Tova?

[name]Romy[/name] really appeals to me for some reason. I know it’s turning into a bit of hipster name, but that doesn’t put me off. It feels like a nice strong, independent name to me and a little bit unconventional, which I like.

I also really like [name]Tova[/name], which I think is a really nice alternative to [name]Ava[/name]. It’s pretty and strong and I like that it’s easy to spell and read. It’s also a variation of [name]Tove[/name] - first name of [name]Tove[/name] [name]Jansson[/name] who wrote the Moomin books which I [name]LOVE[/name].

What do others think of these names? And what middle names would you go for?

I quite like
[name]Romy[/name] [name]Kate[/name] ([name]Kate[/name]'s my [name]MIL[/name])

But I don’t have any suggestions for middle names for [name]Tova[/name].

We have decided on [name]Arlo[/name] for a boy - do you think [name]Tova[/name] or [name]Romy[/name] will work with [name]Arlo[/name]? I think either of them do.

I don’t like fussy first names, but could be convinced on something with more syllables for a middle name.

I actually really like [name]Romy[/name] and [name]Tova[/name]. I didn’t think I’d like [name]Tova[/name], but I do. I think [name]Romy[/name] [name]Kate[/name] sounds really nice and [name]Tova[/name] [name]Kate[/name] sounds fine too. I think both names go great with [name]Arlo[/name].

Other middle names:

Thanks so much for your suggestions! There are some lovely ones there. I’m drawn to [name]Simone[/name] as a MN - it works really well with both [name]Tova[/name] and [name]Romy[/name] even though it’s not a name I’ve ever liked before. I love [name]Beatrix[/name] as a name, but I think I prefer it as a first name. [name]Romy[/name] [name]Celeste[/name] is gorgeous as is [name]Tova[/name] [name]Quinn[/name]!

Lots of food for thought. Thanks!

I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Tova[/name]! I wish my husband would let me put it on our short list for consideration.

[name]Tova[/name] (also can spelled [name]Tovah[/name], which is my preferred spelling) sounds so great with [name]Simone[/name]!

[name]Tova[/name] [name]Rebecca[/name]/[name]Rebekah[/name]
[name]Tova[/name] [name]Miriam[/name]
[name]Tova[/name] [name]Natalie[/name]
[name]Tova[/name] [name]Naomi[/name]
[name]Tova[/name] [name]Danielle[/name]

I love [name]Arlo[/name] and [name]Romy[/name]. Not a fan of [name]Tova[/name], it looks like place name to me. Not a fan at all. [name]Romy[/name] [name]Kate[/name] is beautiful.

Not a fan of either.

Lucystone - It’s so frustrating when your hubby vetos one of your faves huh! My hubby is NOT a fan of [name]Romy[/name], but I’m working on him lol.
[name]Tovah[/name] is lovely too actually, but I still think I prefer [name]Tova[/name] without the H. Thank you for the middle name suggestions - [name]Miriam[/name] is good actually because that’s a family name and I’ve always quite liked it.

I’m still looking for middle name suggestions if anyone would like to contribute :slight_smile:

I really like [name]Tova[/name]! [name]Tova[/name] [name]Celine[/name] would be my pick. Similarly I like the suggestion of [name]Tova[/name] [name]Celeste[/name].
