Which name goes with my last name?

Last name is [name]Reilly[/name] and we’re having a little girl.

[name]Bronwyn[/name] [name]Reilly[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Reilly[/name]
[name]Isla[/name] [name]Reilly[/name]
[name]Sloane[/name] [name]Reilly[/name]
Cameryn [name]Reilly[/name]
[name]Piper[/name] [name]Reilly[/name]
[name]Talia[/name] [name]Reilly[/name]

Middle name will probably be either [name]Margaret[/name] or [name]Rose[/name] (Family names)


I love [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Reilly[/name]!!
[name]Bronwyn[/name] [name]Reilly[/name] is also nice but in [name]Wales[/name] [name]Bronwen[/name] is the only female spelling so I would stick to that. It’s a bit softer as well which I like!
My favourite -wen name is [name]Anwen[/name], maybe you’ll like that? I love how it gets you the [name]Annie[/name] nickname! ^^

[name]Isla[/name] [name]Reilly[/name] is a lot of L’s!! [name]Isla[/name] is a lovely name, but it becomes something of a tongue twister with [name]Reilly[/name]… [name]Isla[/name]-[name]Rose[/name] [name]Reilly[/name] would be nice though, and I kind of like double first names! Also, I think [name]Isla[/name] will rise in popularity big time, so an [name]Isla[/name]-[name]Rose[/name] would stand out among other Islas’.

[name]Sloane[/name] sounds a bit abrupt with [name]Reilly[/name], but [name]Sloane[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Reilly[/name] is OK…
Cameryn [name]Reilly[/name] sounds OK as well, but I don’t like the R’s so close, but it’s not as tongue twister-y as [name]Piper[/name] [name]Reilly[/name] where the R’s are right next to each other and none of the middle names make it any better (It’s still very R heavy)
[name]Talia[/name] is one of the names I just find too soft and insubstantial for my own liking… [name]Thalia[/name] would find favour with me, but [name]Talia[/name] is too wishy-washy and modern… Maybe you like [name]Dahlia[/name]? The D is sharper than the T, so it has more groove ^^ [name]Tilda[/name] is also sweet, and maybe you’ll like [name]Twila[/name] or [name]Timea[/name]?

I vote for one of these:
[name]Bronwen[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Reilly[/name]
[name]Isla[/name]-[name]Rose[/name] ([name]Margaret[/name]) [name]Reilly[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Rose[/name] [name]Reilly[/name] or [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Reilly[/name]

Although now I see that [name]Rose[/name] [name]Reilly[/name] sounds really spunky and sweet, have you considered using [name]Rose[/name] as a first name?
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Reilly[/name] for example would be awesome!!

They all go with [name]Reilly[/name] and you have some different styles here. I really like [name]Talia[/name] prefer [name]Tahlia[/name] spelling, and imo it is the new [name]Taylor[/name] which I am so sick of hearing, yet [name]Talia[/name] has the femininity and uniqueness that [name]Taylor[/name] lacks.

My pick is

[name]Talia[/name] [name]Piper[/name] [name]Rose[/name] or [name]Tahlia[/name] [name]Piper[/name] [name]Rose[/name]

[name]Penelope[/name] is beautiful, and has perfect flow with [name]Reilly[/name]. I like [name]Isla[/name] and [name]Talia[/name], too, but to me [name]Isla[/name] [name]Reilly[/name] is very L-heavy, and I personally find [name]Talia[/name] [name]Reilly[/name] a little hard to say.

(You could make this into a poll :slight_smile: )

Good luck!

[name]Penelope[/name] and [name]Bronwyn[/name] go best with [name]Reilly[/name], with [name]Talia[/name] in third place.

Yes, I can see the “L” factor makes it a little hard to say.

I like [name]Penny[/name] [name]Reilly[/name] but not [name]Penelope[/name] it always reminds me of a wolf.

[name]Bronwen[/name] [name]Reilly[/name] is really difficult to say, I wouldn’t recommend using that at all, it’s so awkward.

[name]Penelope[/name] is my favourite.

I like:

[name]Sloane[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Reilly[/name]
[name]Bronwyn[/name] [name]Rose[/name] [name]Reilly[/name]

Is [name]Rose[/name] a family name? I ask b/c this is SO common as a mn as to almost be a throw-a-way name.

What about (flowers & colors)
[name]Daisy[/name] & [name]Lily[/name] (although not too good with [name]Reilly[/name])

***whoops, I see [name]Rose[/name] IS a family name. Therefore ignore the last part.

I think [name]Penelope[/name] sounds best. [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Rose[/name] [name]Reilly[/name].

[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Rose[/name] is my favorite. A thought with your last name. I have two close friends whose last names can also be first names (like yours) and it drives them crazy because people are always switching their names and treating their last names like their first names. I would stay away from first names that were traditionally surnames (like [name]Cameron[/name]), because I think it would make the tendency to switch the names around all that much worse, in my opinion. A name like [name]Penelope[/name] is unquestionably a first name, and just so pretty but still unusual, with [name]Penny[/name] as a sweet nickname.
