Calling all babyname nerds! Help me name this twin! - Page 5

Thread Starter 

I like Lyra, but one of good friends is pregnant and plans to use that name for her babe. I had never heard the name until she told it to me, and she knows that, so it'd be pretty weird for me to take it. Plus, DH thinks of Lycra when he hears it (damn him and his word association games)

I usually don't post...

 

but I thought I'd ask.

What about Gwen? Or Gwenllian?
 

post #83 of 120

Jillian (not sure if that was suggested yet) It's a double LL like Calliope but not rhyming

Hmm, I think if we were to go with just Gwen, we'd probably go with just Wendy. But Ive not heard Gwenllian before. Thats pretty.

 

I like Gillian, but DH thinks Gillian Welch is too sad. I love her.

I love Wendy! Maybe not the best association to mention but I named my old car that. She was great.

if i was having a girl i was going to name her Kaidence Alivia,

a little twist on the original spelling of Olivia and i think it is pronounced this way by majority of the people i know.

I've seen Wendalyn before (blend of Gwendolyn and Wendy, kinda).  It is in the vein of being a 'classic' German name, not a newly created one, and means 'wanderer'.  

 

I've also known a Winnifred (who went by Winnie) - which could be slightly similar.

Oooh, Winnie sweet!  I prefer it over Wendy.  :)  That reminds me of a woman I met once named Windsor.  I always thought that was unique, strong, and pretty.

I have read the whole thread but can't recall if this one was mentioned:

 

Cordelia

 

I saw it on a naming thread on another site, and it jumped out at me for you!

I also love the name Alaia (Ah-lie-ah)

Oooh, I love Cordeila, but DH is completely against any names that were in Buffy :(

 

 

 

So, right now, we can agree on this:

Adaline Sarah Zoller (this is our DD) 

Eleanor Wendy Zoller

Calliope Mae Zoller

 

So: Adaline, Eleanor, and Calliope

or

Ada, Wendy, and Callie

Grey's Anatomy is okay, but no-go on Buffy, huh?  Must be a Patrick Dempsey fan ;)  I have no frame of reference for Buffy, so that was not on my radar at all. Bummer. Cordelia is an awesome name!

 

I do like Ada, Callie and Wendy.

post #95 of 120

I think Eleanor is great!

 

Also, he does know that Buffy was a long time ago, right? Very few people would make the connection.

I just watched the whole entire Buffy last year, so it's pretty fresh on his mind :) We've never seen Grey's Anatomy.  Which name is that?

Matilda Rose

 

Beatrix Elise

 

Evelyn Elise

 

Alice Elizabeth

 

Natalya Olivia

So it's either Ada, Ellie and Callie or Ada, Wendy and Callie. You're considering Wendy Eleanor then?

We aren't considering "Wendy" as a first name, although it will likely be the name we call her. I dont like it as a first name because I dont think it goes well with Calliope and Adaline.  I wonder how it will be if two girls are called by their first names, and she is called by her middle name. Does anyone have experience with calling only one child by their middle name? 

 

Also, I totally wouldnt have a problem calling her Eleanor if that seems to suit her better or if she wants to be called that. 

 

But, we do like "nora", "ella" , and "ellie" as nicknames for Eleanor. DH has yet to mention that "Eleanor Wendy" reminds him of "Eleanor Rigsby" and Im hoping he wont notice that it is similar because he vetoes everything that reminds him of anything!

Oh, gotcha. Callie (Calliope) Torres is the ortho attending on Grey's. She's a current character on the show. Or at least thru most of Season 8, as I am watching it on Netflix and haven't made it through the end of that season yet ;) 

 

I DO like the suggestion of Matilda for you as well, nn Tillie? My DD has a friend named Matilda, and she is just a DARLING little girl.  Adaline, Calliope and Matilda/Ada, Callie and Tillie...
