Well, since my first post about names about 2 months ago, we've changed this baby's name 3 times! I think we've finally settled on "Claire", and I was wondering what you mamas think of that name. I'm torn between thinking it's a beautiful classic and thinking it's short and boring.
Our last name is only 1 syllable so that is weighing on my mind also. Anyway, I need some help on a middle name. I think it should be 3-4 syllables to balance out the short names. Claire Elizabeth flows really nicely and does have a good ring to it, but I feel like Elizabeth is such a common middle name and I would love to come up with something a little more original.
I like to use family names whenever possible but the only ones to choose from are: Hazel, Henrietta, Margaret and Josephine and I don't particularly think any sound that great.
Some that we've talked about:
Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated!!! Thank you!!
p.s. the only other name that's on the table right now is Julia and I was also wondering how you all feel between that and Claire. Thanks so much for your help!
Claire was our baby name if this one was a girl (it's a boy tho)
we were going with Claire Elise or Claire Grace because we do family names for middles. I say just pick something you love, it's very rare that you would say your child's entire name. We liked Claire Olivia too, but our last name starts with a 'G' so her initials would have been COG. Not sure what your last begins with, but that is something to consider.
