Hello! I got on this board specifically for name ideas and/or advice! I am expecting our 4th child and have less than 2 months to seal the deal on a name. This time around has been hard! I currently have 2 boys and a girl and am expecting another girl. My kids are Eli, Evan and Bryn. So, we obviously prefer short names (b/c of our longer last name) and we are using a family middle name Jo for this baby girl, which means no 1-syllable first names. We didn’t want an E name b/c we didn’t want our daughter Bryn to be the odd person out.
With all of that said, I have always loved the name Sophie and that was in the running for my daughter last time. So, here we are again considering it. That or Lyla, which can be spelled Lila as well. Those are the two being considered for our 4th as of date. My hesitation with Sophie is the popularity, although I feel like it was more popular 5+ yr ago. But it definitely is one of those names you see a lot. And Lyla/Lila I’m not sure if it is too cutesy and/or would be a challenge for a little girl to say her own name. lol. My question for you ladies is:
1. Sophie vs Lyla/Lila
2. If the latter, which spelling? Lyla vs Lila?
Thanks a bunch!!
