Working with a Tough Last name

[name]Hi[/name] there! :slight_smile:

Our first little peanut is due in [name]January[/name] and we are having the hardest time finding her name. Our last name is [name]Cannon[/name] and we are finding that (for us anyways) its a really hard name to work with. We want something a little less popular, but the only name we’ve found that didn’t sound bad with our last name is [name]Riley[/name]. Definitely not the name we want.

Does anyone have any ideas? We’ve been at this for awhile now and its getting a little frustrating. :expressionless:

I like [name]Cannon[/name] and any girl’s name ending with ‘a’ would suit beautifully.

Eg
[name]Juliana[/name] [name]Eve[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]

and

[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Cannon[/name] if you like alliteration
[name]Calliope[/name]
[name]Xanthe[/name] (zan thee)
[name]Vivian[/name] [name]Lily[/name]
[name]Lucy[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]
[name]Meredith[/name]
[name]Daphne[/name]
[name]Eliza[/name]
[name]Elise[/name]
[name]Alyssa[/name]
[name]Delia[/name]
[name]Cecelia[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name]
[name]Isadora[/name]
[name]Rosemary[/name] nn [name]Romy[/name]
[name]Calista[/name]
[name]Marissa[/name]
[name]Eleanor[/name]
[name]Katherine[/name] nn [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Viola[/name] vee oh lah

[name]Hi[/name]!

rollo: Thanks for the ideas. I think something that doesn’t end in n,en,ne,yn, or on would be best.
[name]Eliza[/name]
[name]Delia[/name]
[name]Cecilia[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name]
[name]Rosemary[/name] nn [name]Romy[/name]

I love these names. :slight_smile:

charliehotsox: I definitely like the ‘ee’ sound, like [name]Riley[/name]. I just don’t like [name]Riley[/name]'s popularity right now.
I do love [name]Zoe[/name], [name]Rosemary[/name], [name]Emily[/name], [name]Amelie[/name], and [name]Bryony[/name]. :slight_smile:

Of the ones that don’t end in ‘ee’, I like [name]Margaret[/name], [name]Beatrice[/name], [name]Elisabeth[/name], [name]Josephine[/name], and [name]Grace[/name].

Thanks!

Of the names suggested by the pp’s, I love [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]. [name]Eliza[/name] and [name]Elisabeth[/name] [name]Cannon[/name] also sound really great.

What if [name]Margaret[/name] was her middle name?

What would be the fn instead?

I think [name]Cannon[/name] is a lovely last name! I love:

[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Julia[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] or [name]Clara[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Maria[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]

bedhead: I don’t know, anything that sounded good with [name]Margaret[/name]? lol

[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]
[name]Elisabeth[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]
etc.

[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Cecily[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Helena[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Delia[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Eloise[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]

[name]Sylvia[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Marina[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]

Ljcannon: Lol, aw I would have loved [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Elisabeth[/name] [name]Grace[/name] [name]Cannon[/name] (lot of name, I know).

Anyways I like the pp’s suggestion of [name]Violet[/name], helena or [name]Amelia[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]. [name]Do[/name] any of those appeal to you?

I like [name]Elisabeth[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Grace[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]. ?
I love [name]Violet[/name] but I think that with our ln it would seem a little more like an adjective than a name.
[name]Helena[/name] [name]Cannon[/name] might sound like “hell in a cannon”. lol not that it makes sense, but its what I hear.

But I love [name]Amelia[/name]. I also love [name]Emilia[/name], then she could have the nn [name]Emmy[/name].

[name]Emilia[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]?

[name]Elisabeth[/name] [name]Grace[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]?
I like [name]Emilia[/name] also, either one would be very pretty.

I really like the way [name]Amelia[/name] [name]Cannon[/name] sounds, as well as pairing it with [name]Margaret[/name] as mn. What about [name]Emaline[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]? Or [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Emaline[/name] [name]Cannon[/name] for that matter. And if you like [name]Margaret[/name], maybe you might find a name that sounds better with an alternative like [name]Margot[/name] (pronouced with hard O and no T), [name]Marjorie[/name], or [name]Marguerite[/name].

[name]Emaline[/name] [name]Violet[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Margot[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Margot[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Margaret[/name] [name]Elise[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Rosemary[/name] [name]Elise[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Marjorie[/name] [name]Cannon[/name]
[name]Bryony[/name] [name]Lillian[/name] [name]Cannon[/name] (too many n’s??)

You have a very amazing line up of names that sound very nice with your last name and are fantastic on their own as well! Let us know where you’re leaning for now…

Best Wishes!
