Name Sage: But I Like All 42 Names!

baby name choice

Amy writes:

We are expecting our second little girl in the next few months.

We found the perfect name for our first daughter, Viviana Rose. We call her Viviana, Vivi and Viv. I love the nickname options. We also love that it’s classic with a twist so that it’s out of the US Top 100.

Now we’re expecting another pretty little girl and I need a name that can live up to the fullness, warmth, and femininity of Viviana. It has to feel right on a child, but also appropriate for an adult.

The problem is that we’ve already used our favorite name, and picking another name is just leaving me feeling deflated.

I have 42 names on my name list. I can’t even believe I’m admitting to that in writing. 42! I like them all. They’re nice. But nothing has that same sparkle.

Livy writes:

We are expecting our second child, a daughter, in four weeks and we are completely stumped on a name. We already have a son called Rex and his name was really the only one we could agree on but we both loved it; it fitted instantly. This time we have a lot of names that we both like but nothing that is ‘the one’.

We really want a name for our daughter that is strong, feminine, and not too frilly and, ideally, has the potential for nicknames. We are looking outside the top 100 names (we are in the UK so on the UK list) and want it to be interesting rather than popular or faddy.

Names we have on our shortlist are:

birth announcements July

By Linda Rosenkrantz

Get ready for another monthsworth of imaginative Berrybaby choices—from Alaric to Zadoc!

Just a one single name found multiple users in July: Elsie, but also the Isobel spelling was found in both first and middle place.

The nature middle name trend continues, with an Iris, a Sage, a Lake, and a Wren.  For vowel watchers: Just a solitary A-girl, but five beginning with E. And three accidental alliterations.

Here’s the list:

Name Sage: A Sister for Rex and Leo

naming siblings

Lauren writes:

Our two little fellows, Rex, 3, and Leo, 18 months, will have a little sister later this year.

Our Hungarian last name is rather challenging to spell and difficult to pronounce, so we like the idea of keeping her name easy to read and say.

I like shorter, feminine, vintage names like Rose, Polly, and Milly, while my husband seems to lean towards more traditional names like Emily and Elizabeth.

We both love names that can transition easily to cute nicknames like Cece, Coco, and Milly, although this isn’t a must.

Whew! Hope this little girl isn’t as high maintenance as we’re making her name!
