What do you think...

…of [name]Esmerelda[/name] (nn [name]Esme[/name])?
i love this name, always have.
will probably never use it because my twins due in january are set to have irish names and [name]Esmerelda[/name] just wouldn’t fit with [name]Caoimhe[/name] and Aibhlinn… so even if we ever do have a third which happens to be a girl… it wouldn’t be an option for us…
i’m just wondering if there are any other [name]Esmerelda[/name] lovers out there…
anyone used this name?
what are some good middle names?

I personally love the name [name]Esmeralda[/name], glad to have found someone else who does too!

Some cool middle names for [name]Esmeralda[/name] are:
[name]Esmeralda[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Esmeralda[/name] [name]Elise[/name]
[name]Esmeralda[/name] [name]Carlotta[/name]
[name]Esmeralda[/name] [name]June[/name] or [name]July[/name]
[name]Esmeralda[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]
[name]Esmeralda[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Esmeralda[/name] [name]January[/name]
[name]Esmeralda[/name] [name]Frances[/name] or [name]Francesca[/name]
[name]Esmeralda[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]
[name]Esmeralda[/name] [name]Sapphire[/name] or [name]Safira[/name]
[name]Esmeralda[/name] [name]Truth[/name]
[name]Esmeralda[/name] [name]Virginia[/name]
[name]Esmeralda[/name] [name]Chloe[/name]

But there are some great first name combos as well, such as:
[name]Georgia[/name] [name]Esmeralda[/name]
[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Esmeralda[/name] (or [name]Lydia[/name] [name]Emerald[/name]!)
[name]Mercy[/name] [name]Esmeralda[/name]
[name]Sara[/name] nn [name]Sadie[/name] [name]Esmeralda[/name]
[name]Camila[/name] nn [name]Mila[/name] [name]Esmeralda[/name]

Hmm, sorry about the shortness of that section, my creativity’s running a bit dry at the moment! But I’m sure I’ll edit a million times with more ideas. :slight_smile: Congratulations on your twins!

PS: I also love the name [name]Esme[/name], though I never even thought of it as a nn for [name]Esmeralda[/name]. So cool!

that’s funny… i’ve only ever considered [name]Esme[/name] as a nn for [name]Esmerelda[/name]… until i came to this site, i didn’t realize it could stand on it’s own…

I’m a big fan of [name]Esmeralda[/name]–and while it is definitely not Irish, I do think that [name]Esme[/name] gets a fair amount of use in [name]Ireland[/name], so it might not be too discordant with your twins after all!
