We are having a girl!
We just found out today we are having a girl! We are so thrilled but while we had a list of two boy names (Ezra and Graham), we still have quite a few girls names and would love to get some help on finding a name for our new daughter.
The girls list is as follows:
Chloe (a bit worried about the popularity)
Magnolia (does it sound too hippy?)
If it helps, our last name starts with a P, is 3 syllables, and ends with ss. Middle names are not at all set but to give you an idea of some we are considering West (mother's maiden name), Veda, Freya, and Posey.
I like Caroline best. Congrats on your daughter! :) We are having a girl as well and I can't wait!
I think all your names are beautiful, Chloe and Eleanor are my favourites though. I also love Beatrice, but as your surname ends in -ss, it will be repetitive, Beatrix would be better. Magnolia is growing on me, I don't think it's too hippy, it just doesn't feel quite like a name to me yet.
Beatrice - very pretty, I like with most of your middle names too
Caroline - lovely name, understated but classic and elegant, Caroline West is a nice combo
Chloe - i think its a bit too popular, maybe try Cleo, Zoe, Zoa, Clodagh (Cloh-da), or Clara, or you could try other short greek names à la Pia, Calla, Chara, Charis, Chloris (or Clarissa), Delia, Toula, or Tana.
Eleanor - like it, classic but pretty, Eleanor Roosevelt connection
Magnolia - pretty, a bit eccentric but not hippy because it feels regal and stately
I like Eleanor and Magnolia best. I don't think Magnolia sounds too hippy, plus she can always go by Maggie too.
Congratulations! :) My favorites on your list are Magnolia and Caroline. Magnolia sounds good with middle name West, but I wouldn't pair it with Veda or Freya because of the -a endings, and Magnolia Posey is a bit too gardeny for my liking. I think Caroline sounds good with all of your middle name options except Posey. That's my two cents, for what it's worth. Good luck!
Oooh, Magnolia Veda P----ss would be awesome! Lovely flow, I think the the -a endings sound fabulous together
Beatrice wouldn't work with your last name
1 Eleanor Veda (works best with Graham rather than Ezra as they would share initials)
2 Caroline Posey (works with both names)
3 Magnolia West (works best with Graham rather than Ezra as they share similar endings)
4 Beatrice Posey (Beatrix would be better with your surname)
5 Chloe Freya/Veda (Chloe West or Chloe Posey just aren't ideal).
I'm really loving Magnolia West nn Maggie or Nola! :)
With a possible future Graham or Ezra, and with your last name, I like Eleanor.
Eleanor West P...
I think Beatrice Veda is wonderful too, but not sure about it with Ezra. With Graham, sure.
