Girl's names!

Postby brenjay » Tue Nov 04, 2008 3:41 pm

Having a hard time with the girl's names.

My only real requirements are that it can't be in the top 100, and it has to be a name that people recognize and can (usually) pronounce right.

I'm personally leaning towards Celia, but DH likes Abriella.

My last name (we're naming with both last names, but mine will be last, and prob the one that will be used as the last name) ends in an "ee" sound - kind of like "Lefty" - so any name that ends in that sound would be out.

Off-poll suggestions welcome!

I voted Josephine because I like the nickname Fina, another option would be Fianna, that was on my list :D

oh my I love them all! you have great choices there!

I chose Abriella, because I like the nic name Elle or Ella which I wanted for my dd, but it means "hey you" in Greek so dh said it was a no-go :(

I have the same restrictions for my kids names - not the most popular, not too weird, able to be pronounced so they don't suffer embarassment or constantly have to correct people, and nothing that is super trendy or Hollywoodized.

I voted Miriam. I think it's a very pretty name. I have a good friend named Miriam, her nickname is Mim, which is cute.

I LOVE Celia!! That would totally be at the top of my list, except our last name is Soltis and Celia Soltis just sounds silly, haha. Josephine is also on my list though, so I like that one too.

Hahaha! We're totally split. Miriam was always the dark horse, it's still too old-fashioned, I think, it needs a few more years to feel like a young name again. It really is among the three others.

Thank you for all your help! Keep it coming if anyone else wants to comment, the decision is far from made, but I definitely have my three front-runners now!

Okay!

My top two were always Celia and Josephine. And I still don't know which to pick! They're both great, but so different, it's hard to compare.

At least I have 28 more weeks to decide!

Or maybe I'll wait until she (assuming it's a she) comes out, and decide then.
