Which name for first baby?

My husband and I can’t agree on a first name for our baby girl, due in [name]November[/name]. Being an elementary school teacher doesn’t help either!

So far, we’ve come up with the following names:

[name]Adeline[/name]/[name]Addie[/name] (my top pick), [name]Isla[/name] (his top pick), [name]Paige[/name], [name]Brooklyn[/name], [name]Reese[/name], [name]Scarlett[/name], and [name]Quinn[/name]. I also like [name]Sadie[/name], [name]Harlow[/name], and [name]Noelle[/name]/[name]Ellie[/name] myself.

Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

Those are all great options. I particularly like [name]Adeline[/name], [name]Isla[/name], [name]Reese[/name], [name]Quinn[/name], [name]Sadie[/name], and [name]Noelle[/name]. I think [name]Brooklyn[/name] is the most trendy and likely to become a bit dated. They sound good paired together, too: [name]Isla[/name] [name]Noelle[/name], [name]Adeline[/name] [name]Reese[/name], [name]Sadie[/name] [name]Adeline[/name], and [name]Reese[/name] [name]Harlow[/name] are my faves.

I love [name]Scarlet[/name] from your list.

Out of your two top picks, I love [name]Isla[/name] <3 However I really like Paige & Scarlett <3

For October and November babies, although not very original, I love the idea of Autumn <3

1 [name]Adeline[/name]
2 [name]Sadie[/name]
3 [name]Paige[/name]

[name]Adeline[/name]/[name]Addie[/name], [name]Paige[/name], [name]Scarlett[/name], [name]Sadie[/name], [name]Noelle[/name]/[name]Ellie[/name]

Those are great!

I never though of [name]Noelle[/name] ([name]Ellie[/name]) and I can’t stop thinking about it… That is a good sign. HAHA. I don’t love the others too much. Good luck :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

I really like the idea of [name]Adeline[/name] [name]Scarlet[/name] :slight_smile:

[name]Adeline[/name] is fine, but I don’t like the nn [name]Addie[/name]…I’m surprised you aren’t turned off it since your an elem teacher, but maybe you’ve never had an [name]Addie[/name]. I myself have had too many. :wink: I like [name]Isla[/name], [name]Paige[/name], and I love [name]Noelle[/name]!

I really like [name]Paige[/name], [name]Scarlett[/name], and [name]Sadie[/name]. The rest aren’t bad, just NMS.

Thanks for the heads up on the popularity of [name]Addie[/name]. I haven’t had any yet (just tons of Madisons going by [name]Maddie[/name], which is unfortunate because I think it’s a lovely name…and probably why I like Addie so much). Maybe it’s because I teach grade 7 and Addie hasn’t made its way up here quite yet!

You two have great taste. I love both of your top picks!

I’m probably not much help, because I equally adore [name]Adeline[/name] and [name]Isla[/name]. You’ll probably run in to fewer Islas, if that makes a difference. I’m not a big fan of [name]Brooklyn[/name] or [name]Scarlett[/name], because they seem like they’re everywhere lately. But I love [name]Paige[/name]. [name]Addie[/name] or [name]Isla[/name] [name]Paige[/name] sounds like a girl I would like to meet.

It’s easier to put with names I dislike. I actually like a lot of the names.
You definitley couldn’t go wrong with most of them. :slight_smile:

I really dislike [name]Brooklyn[/name], [name]Reese[/name] and [name]Quinn[/name]. I much prefer them on boys.

Thanks for all of the feedback - I’m going to eliminate [name]Quinn[/name] and [name]Brooklyn[/name] based on your suggestions.

As well, we were toying with the name [name]Aveline[/name]. Similar to [name]Adeline[/name] (my fav) but also close to [name]Ava[/name], a family favourite. I noticed that [name]Aveline[/name] is the name of a character in the new video game Assasin’s [name]Creed[/name], which sounds like it shouldn’t be a problem, but my husband works in the gaming industry. Thoughts?

My top 3 from your list are:

  1. [name]Adeline[/name]/[name]Addie[/name]
  2. [name]Isla[/name]
  3. [name]Noelle[/name]

Some combos:
[name]Isla[/name] [name]Adeline[/name]
[name]Adeline[/name] [name]Sadie[/name]
[name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Noelle[/name]

I’m not familiar with the game character [name]Aveline[/name], but I don’t care for it, much prefer [name]Adeline[/name]. [name]Aveline[/name] to me sounds like it should be a brand of…something…maybe makeup. Lol, not sure why this is my impression, but there you go! I prefer [name]Ava[/name] also to [name]Aveline[/name], despite it’s popularity. I have heard of a little girl named [name]Aviana[/name], which is kinda cute to me, but again, I prefer [name]Ariana[/name]. Obviously I go for the more familiar choices. :wink:

Haha, I had the same thoughts. Sounded a bit too much like [name]Avon[/name] mixed with [name]Maybeline[/name] for my taste.
