Which one do you like better?

My all time name love has been [name]Jane[/name]. Its the name of my favorite author and character, [name]Jane[/name] [name]Austen[/name] and [name]Jane[/name] [name]Bennet[/name]. But I also like [name]Finola[/name]. Its uncommon and Irish (I’m part Irish) and its just so pretty. I am torn.
Which one do you like better?

Thanks in advance!

I much prefer [name]Jane[/name] ,I never much liked [name]Finola[/name] as a name ,in fact it would be one of my leat favourite Irish names but thats just me.

You could have both
[name]Jane[/name] [name]Finola[/name]
[name]Finola[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

[name]How[/name] do you pronounce [name]Finola[/name]? Cause some Irish names have strange pronounciations.
Is it just Fi-no-la or fee-no-la?

[name]Finola[/name] is said [name]FINN[/name]-OH-LAH

That’s ok actually. Not hard to say but stands out.
I’d want to shorten it to [name]Finn[/name] but I shorten everything.

[name]Finola[/name] [name]Jane[/name] sounds quite nice. Unless you had 2 daughters, in which case problem solved. Although [name]Jane[/name] could sound a little ordinary next to [name]Finola[/name].

I much prefer [name]Jane[/name] over [name]Finola[/name]. [name]Jane[/name] is such a lovely, simple name while I’m getting a completely different vibe from [name]Finola[/name]. Good luck:)

I agree with other posters - although [name]Finola[/name] is pretty, [name]Jane[/name] is special (and it has a lot of meaning for you). I think having it as a middle name would tick all the boxes, since your daughter would have something unusual and a bit more “flowery” as her second name to balance out the classic and simple beauty of [name]Jane[/name].

There’s one [name]Jane[/name] that always sticks in my mind from my experience. She was at university with me. She was studying fine art, and had huge green eyes and a sort of pixie haircut with dark hair - absolutely stunning. I remember that when I met her, the fact that her name was so classic almost made it stand out more. I have a friend called [name]Anne[/name] whose name has the same effect. Those examples really showed me how a classic name can shine through, especially one that’s gone out of common use.

[name]Love[/name] [name]Jane[/name].

I love [name]Jane[/name] more than I do [name]Finola[/name], but I think [name]Finola[/name] is a lovely name. I love the [name]Fionola[/name] [name]Jane[/name] suggestion!

Take care! :slight_smile:

I love [name]Jane[/name]…) You can’t go wrong w that one. [name]Finola[/name] not so much.
