Natassia or Jessamine
For our second baby, my DH and I had been set on Jessamine Lyric Skye (2 middle names) to go with our daughter, Sepphiria Jade Raine.
The other day my DH came upon the name Natassia and fell in love with it and now doesn't want to use Jessamine! I like both names, but I think Jessamine goes better with Sepphiria.
What do y'all think?? Also, to entertain the name Natassia, what name would be fit as a MN?
I have never seen Natassia, but I want to assume that it is a form of Nastasia, which is a form of Anastasia. I personally like it, though I do prefer Nastasia, though I can see why people wouldn't prefer that spelling since it basically has the word nasty in it. From what I can dig up on it, though, it seems like it is actually used as a variation.
As much as I love Jessamine, I think that Natassia fits really well with your daughters name.
As for middles, I think that what you have already chosen with Jessamine still flows with Natassia if those have meaning to you.
The middle names we had chosen for Jessamine don't really have any special meaning, we just loved the names.
I had been thinking of Piper or Sage as a middle name, but my DH isn't as on board (especially with Piper). :-/
I like both. Jessamine is very cute (and you can call her Mini!) and pink and bubbly. Natassia is a long time love for me, it's a bit dark which I love.
Natassia Coral Sage
Natassia Coral Glow
Natassia Petal Joy
Natassia Sonnet Joy
Natassia Honey Snow
Natassia Ruby Bliss
I do like the sound of Natassia Coral Sage :) If I can get my DH on board, that is..
What's Natassia? I guess it's terribly misspelled Anastasia, but, trust me as a Russian speaker, there is no Natassia, only Nastasia as a nn for Anastasia.
Jessamine is fine, I like it. Jessamine Lyric is quite pretty.
My first thought was Natassia was variant of Natasha which is a form of Natalia or Natalie. I am surprised how many people think it's form of Anastasia. (Note Anastasia and Natasha are separate names with separate roots. Anastasia means resurection and Natasha means born on Christmas day.) I would be really interested in hearing the roots of this. Keep in mind you've managed to stump name nerds on how what is this name? and where did it come from? A lot of people will get confuse it. On the other Jessamine is different, too. I think either would be good and you should work things with him.
I think both sound equally good with Sepphiria. I like Pearl, Ruby, or Peridot for middle names. Good Luck!
@emilyva - Natasha is not a separate name, it's a nn for Natalia. Russians don't use nicknames as full names. And Nastasia is a nn too.
I knew a girl who was called Nastassia and she got saddled with the nn "Nasty" (which sadly suited her personality). Since you already have a daughter with an "ia" ending (Sepphiria), I would choose Jessamine. Sepphiria reminds me of the word "sapphire" and Jessamine is a nature name (a gorgeous yellow flower) so I think they're well-matched for siblings.
