ok- I don't think posting here on MDC
is going to drive my names onto a top names list, but pls don't spread these ideas to any mainstream boards
I have to admit that I felt a little possessive when I saw Griffin on Lisa Lynn's list, but then I got over it.
Griffin James is our #1 boy name, James being DH's mom's maiden name. We don't really have any other boys names bcz we like Griffin so well. It has a British Isles feel (DH Grandpa was Scottish) but still easy to spell, but not too commonly seen. I was window shopping at Pottery Barn & they have the cute painted wooden letters, when I spelled it out it seemed to fit the baby so well.
Now for girls, I am struggling. We sort of like:
But can't think of any good family middle names that haven't already been used.
Last nite I made up a name for a girl: Dellyn. Like Ellen with a "d" or rhymes with Helen. DH 's mom's name is Dorothy & my Gma's name is Helen, so we can say it's a combo name.
here are some other possible spellings:
Delynn- afraid these last 2 will be pronounced like D'Lynn
Goodness, I have to stop I'm confusing myself. I never thought I'd be one to just *make up* a name, but I *really* like it. Dellyn Meredith sounds good, Meredith being a maiden name from my Mom's side which is already my sister's middle name, but oh well.
So what do you think of Dellyn? Which spelling?
of course, I think it's a boy
