Great name choices! I love naming and just read the whole thread smile.gif
We are name nerds and thankfully have similar naming style so it's been v easy to agree. Both our kids' names fall under Name Nerds' (fun site btw w a good naming style quiz)"old fashioned eccentric" category. They are classic but not ones you hear a bunch.
Our baby girl's name will be a good match.
We don't share names before birth but we picked her name out when we were living in New Orleans 2 yrs ago. It's a French name that begins w a C and is a street there that is one block above a street with our last name. It always struck us that they sounded nice together. We would like for her to have a good C middle name so she could go by Coco or CC if she liked. We have one C middle name in mind... any suggestions?

kt~mommy, my daughter's names are Leona and Evayne. I love that you have that one on your list, it's so lovely and too rarely used.

OrchideZ, I love Cecilia as a "C" name. Also Charlotte, Chantal, Coraline/Caraline, Carina, Caterina and Calypso.

MyKitty, those are all great! Very similar to the first name though...the middle name needs to be one or two syllables and on the simple side. I know it's hard to do when you don't know the first name.

One or two syllable "C" names, now that's a challenge! orngbiggrin.gif  Only one that even comes to mind is Cara, but I admit it's not one of my favourites.

We do have a name that we will probably use as the middle name. It's a nature one and sounds alliterative w the first name. So much fun playing around with combos!

Lovely! Can't wait to hear it. smile.gif

What about Celine, Colette, Cora, Calla, Caren, Connie?

We like a lot of names that are those of close friends, or family members.. And as a teacher, a lot of names have been students' too which is awkward...

Polyhymnia, those are all lovely! Our chosen name is a variation on one in there smile.gif I think we are gonna stick w our proposed mn which is a nature name. Just goes well together with lots of nickname potential!
Sorta bummed we can't use our boy name bc this is our last baby but as a friend said, we could use it for a pet down the way.

Nice! I wish we were so settled, DH won't even talk names until after our 20 week scan on 9/9,hoping to find out gender. I'm feeling a bit nervous today as Prince William and Kate had a son, and most of our boy "top picks" have high odds for royal boy names...

Belladonna Mae is my daughters name, and i have no clue what we are having yet but I have a few names. Girl: blythe, fiona, melora. Boy: barlow, bram, ronan

A friend has a daughter named Carys (care-iss) and I always thought it was simple and pretty.

It's not for me -- the names we pick out are way too Germanic to go with our ridiculously German last name.

My first daughter's name is Olive Jane.  Olive just because we liked it and Jane after my wonderful MIL.  We just recently found out baby #2 is a sweet little girl.  We will name her Brightly Ruth.  Brightly after the line "inspiration move me brightly" in The Grateful Dead's song Terrapin Station.  Ruth is after my sweet late grandmother.  Both times we had a boy name picked out.  He would have been named Byrne after the musician David Byrne (Talking Heads lead singer).

Kellyshea82- Brightly Ruth is a beautiful name! My daughter's name is Gloria Ruth (Gloria after My late MIL and Ruth after my mother!)

Thanks tspencer!

Picking names has always been hard for me...I mean they are stuck with the handle forever.   I thought I picked out lovely names for my kids, but some of them are less thrilled with them than I'd like.

I hated my name, Amelie, as a child.  Teachers couldn't say it, I was called Emily or Amelia just about always.  I tossed my name away for a decade and went by a hippy nickname.  About 10 years ago I began once again introducing myself as Amelie, and I appreciate it much more as an adult.

 

My kids all have 3 names, the 3rd of which rhymes, I know it's a little cheesy, but I still like it.

ds- Zion Elijah Jane

dd- Kaya Rose Laine

dd- Stella Naomi Rain

dd- Hanah (pronounced HA- na) Leah Zane

dd- Indica Autumn Rain but always has been called Indi

 

I am leaving the name choices up to SO, though I will retain ultimate veto power, as I got to name a bunch already and this very well may be his only child.

So far we like Grant for a boy and maybe Lola or Audrey for a girl.  All are from his family.  No ideas for the middle names and am unsure if we will continue with the 2 middle names.  Basically I'm going to leave it up to him.

 

Hanah didn't have a name for 2 weeks.  Ex and I couldn't agree on one at all.  I didn't want to call her baby forever so I finally let my mom pick one out.  She is very christian and picked Hannah.  I like the name but didn't want a biblical name so I switched it to Hana, which means flower and nose in Japanese, but then ex insisted that it ended with the H.  So her name looks weird to me still, like it has a wrong spelling.  But seeing as that is the most popular name of all of theirs it is good to still be able to be slightly individual...I think.  She actually prefers to be called Hanah-Leah and will introduce herself that way.

And Orchidez, it's driving me crazy!!!  I'm trying to think of all the C streets I know around here that are around a street that could be a last name.  I'll be excited to read your birth story as it is like a mystery for me to figure out lol.  I already have a few ideas But since you don't reveal before birth I won't say them  just in case I figured it out lol
