with my daughters names?

We’re building a list for #3…we have 2 little girls. I’m going to write their names as we pronounce them, not as we spell them…
[name]Elayna[/name] [name]Esmay[/name] [name]Amalee[/name] and [name]Mahayla[/name] [name]Mercy[/name] [name]Jubilee[/name]. It did so happen that we loved the lyrical quality of alliteration the first 2x but we are not stuck in that pattern. Based on their nqames what would you suggest? Thanks!

[name]Doveva[/name] [name]Danae[/name] [name]Rosemary[/name]
[name]Georgiana[/name] [name]Gemma[/name] [name]Verity[/name] ([name]George[/name]-jane-ah)
[name]Linnea[/name] [name]Lucy[/name] [name]Naomi[/name]

[name]Catherine[/name] [name]Chloe[/name] [name]Verity[/name]
[name]Clara[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Penelope[/name]
[name]Liliana[/name] [name]Lucia[/name] [name]Emily[/name]
[name]Jemma[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] [name]Hailey[/name]

Thanks! I will see what my dh thinks. Funny my mom keeps suggesting [name]Verity[/name] and we keep saying no. But in the spot that halfkoreangirl put it sounds great. I love [name]Josephine[/name] but dh, not so much (I guess he didn’t read [name]Little[/name] Women lol). [name]Just[/name] asked him about [name]Doveva[/name], I thought it was pretty and exotic…he just didn’t go for it. Thanks! any others? We are not set on the alliteration just worked for us so far.

Hmm : D. With [name]Doveva[/name], I was imagining it prn’d somewhat like [name]Do[/name] VAY va, and I like the 2nd syllable AY sound you have going on. That said, I don’t think you have to do it : D. I also liked [name]Doveva[/name] being Hebrew to go with Biblical [name]Mahala[/name]. Hmmm. I understand not prioritizing the alliteration but I do think it’s a nice tie-in. Here are a few more but you could mix up the alliterative

[name]Aviva[/name] [name]Rosemary[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]
[name]Aurelia[/name] [name]Harriet[/name] [name]Hope[/name]
[name]Azalea[/name] [name]Zoe[/name] [name]Zipporah[/name]

I think you are right jesba that the alliteration works for us. My husband seems to like combos that are alliterated more. Our problem is finding two names that we love that have the same letter.

combos we like…we seem to like the syllable count 3-4, 2, 3…appreciate that jesba and halfkoreangirl noticed this.
[name]Sophia[/name] [name]Simone[/name] _____
[name]Sophia[/name] [name]Shalom[/name] ______
[name]Felicity[/name] [name]Faith[/name] ______
[name]Carolina[/name] [name]Cathleen[/name]/[name]Clementine[/name] _______
[name]Orianna[/name] [name]Omri[/name] _____

other names we like
[name]Elisabetta[/name] (the only second e I can think of that is 2 syllables and I like is evy,my niece’s name. We are way to close to steal her name, besides I want my daughter’s to have original names.)

PS, realize that [name]Sophia[/name] is perhaps the most popular name stateside but it’s my husbands current favorite.

Is it alright if I try to throw out just individual names rather than combos?

[name]Ione[/name] / [name]Iona[/name]
