At some point I realized that so far in our little family, the girls names have 8 letters (DD and I have 8) and the boys names (DH, DS1 and DS2) have 6 letters. We didn't do it on purpose, but now I feel like I'm on a mission to find another girl name that is 8 letters for the baby. lol.gif I keep finding 6 letter names that I like for boys and for girls...but I'm not having as much luck with 8 letter names.

 

And apparently I must like "naming rules" lol. We do M middle names, don't do nicknames (name them what we call them, and call them what we name them...they don't go by middle names, etc lol)...we sound like we're strict! LOL 

 

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

OK, but these are here strictly on the basis of their eight-letteredness, so don't judge me if you hate 'em. :p (Or if I can't count. It's been one of those days.)

 

Charlene/Sharlene

Danielle/Daniela

Rosamund/Rosamond

Annabell (OK, that's a funny spelling)

Bethanne

Penelope

Hermione

Dorothea

Gabriela

Marigold

Primrose

Chastity

Brigitta

Rochelle

Charisma

Jeanette

Felicity

Rosemary

Josefina

Kristina/Kristine

Stefanie

Calliope

Marianne

Katelynn

Susannah

Kayleigh/Caileigh

Isabella/Isabelle

Katarina

Virginia

Rapunzel (you're welcome)

Caroline/Carolina

Serafina

Gloriana

Beatrice

Meredith

Annelise

Michaela

Samantha

Margaret

Joscelyn

Prudence

Jennifer

Patricia

Kimberly

Juliette/Julietta

Angelina

Marjorie

Carlotta

Francine

Briarley

Boadicea (well, you never know)

Georgina

Luciella

Rosaline

Brittany

Sapphire/Sapphira

Amethyst

 

If you think hypens or double-barrelled names "count", you have heaps more options: Jean-Grey, Mary Jane, Ann-Marie, those kinds of names.

 

Also, keep an eye out during movie credits; I always scour them for good names. :)



(Yes, I keep adding more. I'm bored.)

If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.

I do like double names...DD's name is Kerilynn (one name, but like 2 names put together). I like the idea of another girl name ending in anne, anna, ella, elle, etc.

Jennifer! There may have been 3 in every class when we were growing up, but it seems pretty uncommon now.
