Opinions on our names

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I know I still have plenty of time, but I like having a name picked out.  We have decided on a first name for girl and boy but are down to two middle names for each.

Which do you like better for girl and boy?

 

Raina Lorelai

Raina Willow

 

Sebastian Xavier

Sebastian River

Raina Willow and Sebastian River are my choices.  When I heard PINK talk about why she named her daughter Willow, I loved the meaning behind it and Willow has been a favorite name since.  And I have always loved River.  For me, your other options are too many syllables, harder to say than the 2 syllable middles

My vote is for Raina Willow and Sebastian River (River will be our boy's middle name too thumb.gif)
I think both names flow together really well and they are both gorgeous!

I concur with the two previous posters.  :)

Thanks for the imput.  I had posted my names on a more mainstream baby naming forum and nobody liked the Willow or River names so I am glad I posted on here.  Willow and River are names that I really like but are names that my DH would never go for for first names but he is ok with them as middle names.  He is still not completely sold on using River yet, but we will see.

Yeah, I really like Willow and River, and my DP would not want them as first names either.  That's what I love about middle names!   You have the freedom of choosing whatever name you really love withouth having to worry about any constraint!

 

I'd love to have Willow as a middle for our son, but we have agreed to honor his heritage and find a persian name, just like we did with DD.
