Sister for Joel
DH and I currently have a little guy named Joel Francis, and although we aren't yet preggo with #2, we have been contemplating names. We have a few that we really like, just not sure if they "go" with Joel. Current girl name crushes: Adelaide (Addie), Anneliese (not sure of the best way to spell this), Hannah, Elizabeth, Sariah, Alaynah, Natalie, Joselyn, and Leanna. We don't really have a specific naming style...as you can tell from above. Our son's name was a family name, but we do tend to love the biblical/vintage-y names. (Sidenote: while not absolutely necessary, we would love to honour our moms with our daughters names. Both moms have Ann somewhere in there name, but we are not fans of just plain Ann (or Anne). So any suggestions of names along those lines would be great!)
So...any of these sound good with Joel? If so which ones? Any suggestions on middle names or nicknames for them as wwell? And any other name suggestions would be welcomed! Thank you!!!!!
Other names I forgot to add were Liliana and Madeline :)
I think anything on your list would be find with Joel except Alaynah, please not Alayna. Elena or even Alayna would be better, that "h" is just too much. If you are trying to honor an Ann(e) though my pick would be Anneliese (this being my preferred spelling), Hannah, or Leanna (or even Leanne).
I would go with Hannah (very pretty) or Anneliese (definitely this spelling.) I think Hannah and Joel make a very nice sibset.
I think Lydia Ann would be perfect! I love Adelaide and Elizabeth from your list.
Of your choices, Anneliese is my favorite. Hannah is a close 2nd. Other suggestions:
Joel & Ruby
Joel & Annabel
Joel & Livia
I love Leanna from your list. I also like Anneliese.
Susannah (my favorite -ann name)
