6 weeks out, HELP!
We’re having a girl, and are thinking possibly Sariah or Aurora, what’s your thoughts on Sariah (pronounced sar-eye-a) using it solely, or naming her Aurora but actually call her Rory for short? and what would you suggest for a middle name for both?
Congrats on your little girl! Sariah is kind of pretty, but it always makes me think a bit of psoriasis. I really like Aurora though; very pretty. Rory is a cute nickname, too.
A few middle name options:
Twosapphires: Thanks for the oversight we had on sariah! One we didn’t think of, and of those I really like Aurora Noelle!
Glad you like it!

Sariah is lovely!
- Sariah Brielle
- Sariah Chloë
- Sariah Hayden
It’s similar to Saria, which I adore (not a Zelda reference).
I absolutely LOVE Aurora! The nickname Rory is adorable for a girl.
Middle name could be:
-Aurora Chloë (Chloë is a flexible middle name)
-Aurora Belle (Disney theme)
-Aurora Hayden (Hayden is also flexible)
-Aurora Jasmine (slight Disney theme)
I know that was loads, but I hope I helped
Thanks for your suggestions! We love Aurora jade probably the most from your list, Aurora Charlotte caught us off guard as its my name and it wasn’t even something I thought to consider, so thanks for putting that in there too!
I do like Aurora Jade and Aurora Charlotte, too!

I’m not a huge fan of either name but I do agree that Sariah reminds me of psoriasis.
So going with Aurora…

Sariah is pretty and way better than the plain “Sarah,” although it may get mistaken for it. I didn’t think of psoriasis, but I do know someone named Sarai (Sa-rye) that it reminded me of.
Overall, Aurora is the safer option and I adore Rory!!

I actually really like Sariah, but given the “psoriasis” overtones pointed out by others, maybe Sarai is a better alternative. Sarai was the original name for Sarah and means “my princess”.
I prefer Sariah to Aurora, which is getting quite overdone at the moment.
Sariah Lotte (pr. Lottie)
Sariah Bree (or Irish spelling is Brigh)
Sariah Dawn (which mixes Sariah with the meaning for Aurora)

I don’t really like Sariah. I feel like it would constantly be mispronounced or mistaken for Sarah. I had a roommate named Saraya, which has a similar pronunciation, and she had such a hard time with people getting her name wrong… Something about it just doesn’t really work for me.
I really love Aurora, though, and especially with the nickname Rory!! So cute! (If you like Rory a lot, you could also go with Lorelai nn Rory, like in Gilmore Girls. Just something different to maybe consider.) Aurora is really beautiful, too, and I feel like it’s a name we name-lovers discuss a lot, but it’s not actually used nearly as often as we might think.
You’ve got a lot of good auggestion for middle names, too. I really like Aurora Noelle, Aurora Vivian, and Aurora Jade! (I adore Jade, too…)

Have you made a decision yet? I’d love to know what you end up settling on!

No I’m still not 100% sold, and between my health and appointments with different doctors its been hard to keep focused, I truly appreciate all the insight and suggestions from everyone! I personally like them both but don’t love either, he loves Aurora jade because that would give her the same initials as himself, and I loved when someone suggested Charlotte as a mn because that’s my name and well I hadn’t considered it. Its now less then 4 weeks out and I know there’s still time but the doctors are warning me to stay off my feet so she doesn’t come early and with having 3 others age 5 and under running around and their father works, its hard, thanks again for your help, any suggestions at this point would be gladly appreciated, even if u switched up the names we’ve already have Leah Marie (age 5) kael Richard Isaac (age 5) and Nathan Mitchell (age 2)

Oh wow, that does sound challenging! I hope everything goes well for you these last weeks.
If you’re looking for other suggestions, maybe …
* Aurelia Jade
* Aurelia Charlotte
* Charlotte Jade
* Charlotte Sariah
* Bethany Charlotte
* Maya Charlotte
I also think Sariah would be pretty as a middle name.

Aurora Noelle is perfection! Good job TwoSapphires!
stonelennParticipant4 weeks ago
I absolutely agree Aurora Noelle is beautiful, my only hesitation is she’s gonna be born in the summer and Noelle is almost a winter season name? Or am I wrong?
stonelennParticipant3 weeks, 6 days ago
Canada actually haha
TwoSapphiresParticipant3 weeks, 6 days ago
I don’t think you have to be born at Christmas to use the name Noel(le).
