Thank you so much! I have gotten so many complaints from my family that she won’t be able to pronounce or spell her own name. At least now they will be able to say her name.

Like Embra said, it depends on what each couple wants to do. I personally think having more than one last name or a hyphenated last name just makes things complicated. My fiance is Mexican, so he has two last names (father’s first last name, then mother’s first last name). We gave our daughter his first last name only, and when we get married I will be changing my last name to his first last name. We will all share the one last name, but my fiance will have an extra last name. When people ask for his name, he usually only gives the one last name anyways.
I am thankful for:
My baby girl, Noemi
My new job
How is it pronounced? It looks similar to Dahlia. It looks pretty.
I like Samuel the best with the first name Elijah. Victor is my fiance’s name ha ha.
Here, the kids go back to school on Wednesday and I will be starting my new job as a bilingual tutor! I am excited to finally have a full time job, but sad about sending Noemi to daycare. I will be working in the elementary school I went to as a child.
Omg I’m sorry you are going through that. The teachers should be more understanding. Especially the first day. Don’t feel you have to put her on medication if you don’t want to. Some ADHD medicines have really bad side effects. My friend’s son is on ADHD medicine and some make him angry, and others make him depressed. My brother couldn’t tolerate medicine either, so be careful, especially since she’s that young.
Good luck! My mom is an oncology nurse.
I have a pronunciation question. My daughter’s name is Noemi Xochitl. My fiance suggested the name Xochitl, but I kept it as her middle name because it is difficult for Americans to pronounce. My fiance is Aztec and speaks Nahuatl so he is able to say it “correctly”. The tl on the end makes a sort of clicking sound like cl that is hard for my family to say. Is there another accepted pronunciation of this name? Everyone I tell her middle name to gives up on trying to say it. My grandma is telling her friends that her middle name is X. How should I tell other people to pronounce her name?
That’s so funny! Noemi doesn’t like when I use the nursing cover. She will move her arms around and push it up.
The prices for daycare where I live are crazy too. Its $250 a week for an infant. If I don’t get the full time job I applied for, I won’t make enough money for it to be worth me working.
I think Ismini is a pretty name and very uncommon. Ismini Johanne goes good together too. My fiance and I talked about names for a long time while I was pregnant, and finalized the name shortly after we had our gender ultrasound. My baby girl was born May 19 and her name is Noemi Xochitl. Congratulations on your pregnancy!
I agree with Tara, it reminds me of Pokemon. It would be cute as a nickname though.
I don’t like common words for names, and to me an Atlas is a book of maps.
Well Noemi can’t talk yet, but when my sister-in-law was pregnant, her oldest son said her baby’s name was Jake. My sister-in-law already had two boys (Anthony and Daniel) and didn’t know what to name her baby, so she ended up naming him Jake Antonio (Antonio is her husband’s name). Maybe by the time I am pregnant again, Noemi will have an opinion of her own.
Wow it seems a lot of us have filler middle names!
@yellowwatts: I like how your daughter’s names sound with short first names and longer middle names. Most people I know have long first names and filler middle names.
@lcd: I understand how hard it must be to try to not leave someone out. Especially when there are two sides of the family to choose names from.
@Inga: I like how Ethan Xavier and Claire Juliet sound.
@ash: Wow you are all prepared for when you have kids! Hopefully you can get your SO at the time to agree.
@Twosapphires: I like your boys’ names also. I had a strange dream when I was pregnant that I had a boy named Emmanuel.
I don’t remember her ever getting bad reactions from her name. Everyone was able to pronounce it. I haven’t seen her since 9th grade when she moved to Texas.

I think it’s a beautiful name. I had a friend in elementary school with this name.

I have been busy this summer taking care of Noemi. She is two months old now! I have mostly been staying home with her, but sometimes we bring her to my sister-in-law’s house to see her cousins. Her youngest son is 4 days older than Noemi! I’ve also had people coming to my house to visit her. She’s not feeling too well right now because she got her shots yesterday.
