Too bad you can’t sell him on Felix :/ Ivan Rory Felix is a good compromise though! Not crazy about Ivan but I do like the combo ^ as a whole. Benjamin Isaac is great too.
Ohh The little boy I know pronounced it Zen-in. I never would have thought to prn it Zee-non. I like your spelling best with how you’re intending it to be pronounced.
I’m tempted to reverse the first & middle name choices and have something like:
But I know that doesn’t fit your current trend (which I love btw, especially Lucy!) and even if you shorten some of them like Anneliese to Annie, it would be too similar to Allie, etc.
Sooo How about:
Cora Corinne (if you like alliteration. I think it sounds kind of cool, I’m sure many would disagree, plus you have a Carolina & Catherine..)
Kate is one of my favorites to match your girls’ first names but I’m not sure I love it with any of these mn options and you already have a Catherine so I personally wouldn’t use both even if they are in different fn/mn spots..
I don’t care for Jessa, Sarah or Rebekah, sorry.
I like the suggestions from vivnoles of Ruby, Maggie, Pearl, Lola, Nora & Olivia.
Also First Names:
Abby (too close to Allie?)
Ella (may be too close to Emma?)
Zoey Corinne (Corinne sounds great in the middle with just about everything!!)
Mae Amelia (I know someone with this combo)
Haha I love your balance of “there’s ten in my class” & “I’ve never found MY name on a souvenir keychain” that’s great! I like both Benjamin & Andrew, but they are a bit more common than your other names. I think Julian, August & Felix would go great with your other names as a fn! Andrew Blair is my favorite of the combos, maybe Andrew Isaac next? While I like Benjamin and Rory separately I think I’d prefer other names together.
Okay one more… Haha the Rory I know is Rory Dolan which I think is great or Rory Nolan even?
Helena and Pearl
Vaughn and Gage
Kymry. it reminded me of Kamryn. It’s very y heavy but otherwise sounds cute. Did I mention she was a middle aged woman though?! Kimri or Kimry maybe?
So many good choices!! My favorite is Royce. But i also really like Gage, Rory, Rowan and Reid. I know Aiden means fiery..?
Ooo what about Rory Emmett?
I vote for it to be added to the list!! Not loving it with Edmund (old) or Dominic (completely different vibe) though, sorry. It does seem like a tricky name to pair… :/
Rory Eamonn (version of edmund/Edward)
Kimiha I love Olivia & Kieran! Same with vivnoles – Benjamin and Amelia are great, classic choices! Jenni_lynn91 Noemi is stunning (way more refreshing than Naomi). & I know a Zenon, I Think his name is really cool and totally fits him! Why did you change the spelling?
I agree with kimiha. Adeline is a beautiful name!
Haha Inga, congratulations! You make some valid points! I tend to be cold, even in the middle of summer, so hopefully I’ll actually be comfortable (living poolside) if I’m pregnant in summer! Flip flops, easy dresses, etc. are definitely a bonus! I really think August would be my ideal month, but I know babies make their own rules
James and Amber
Penelope and Evangeline
Thanks! I love Violet Mairead, James August and Ronan Forde too!
Thanks twosapphires! I go back and forth between Violet Marie and Violet Mairead.. I really like Isla Josephine too. If we decide to honor a family member in the fn spot (or not at all) I would love Violet in the middle!
DH reminded me of Trevor.. One of the few we agree on but neither of us love 100% either :/
Evangeline Kate is my favorite (I love short & sweet Kate in the middle paired with a long first name). I would also never make that connection you are worried about!
Some recent babies: Ava Monroe (after Marilyn Monroe!), Noah & Gabriella
Cian just popped into my head after seeing Ciaran and Cillian. Emmy, Lottie & Rory is pretty Stinkin cute!
Twosapphires: Susanna Josephine & Lucy Coraline – <3 have one or both today!! Haha
Today… Maeve Josephine or Donovan August?
