I'm a newbie here but I love this site so far! My DH and I are arguing on naming our daughter and have been since day one! HALP!
So far we like Samantha. A lot! We want the name to go with Jerry, which I know if just a nickname of Gerald or Jerome but, we just want Jerry. We also need this name to go with our first daughter's name, Isabella. We don't want it to sound TOO similar and we'd like it to be longer than one syllable. But not a requirement. What we have so far...
I have a few suggestions. :)
First off, i feel that Samantha is way too dated, but... the rest of your names are wonderful!
Here are some suggestions:
Carley Jerry (maybe not this combo because of the ''i'' sounds at the end of both)
Sasha Jerry (i think its the best of my suggestions and goes well as a sibset with Isabella)
Zara Jerry (Isabella and Zara sound cute together as well)
Good Luck! :)
Alexandra or Alexandria Jerry
I like Emilia Jerry and Alexandra Jerry. Cute n n potential E.J and A.J. Alexandria Jerry flows well too or Miranda Jerry (n n M.J.).
Hope that helps :)
GREAT suggestions so far! No one likes Samantha? I don't know why we both like it so much, and it's kind of neat to have Sammy as a nick or Jerry. I really like Emilia Jerry and Alexandria Jerry!
I agree with others that Samantha feels a bit outdated. But I think Amelia & Isabella work wonderfully together!
I actually like Samantha. It's cute, but not too cutesy. Works for a baby, but fits an adult.
How about Samaera? I'm personally not a fan, but it seems like your style. Spelling variations include Samara, Samaira, and Samayra.
I agree wholeheartedly with Samara (prn w/ mar rhyming with far). You can still have the darling nn Sammy, but it's a more exotic and unique choice. Although, personally I don't have a problem with Samantha. I also think Seraphina goes wonderfully.
I like Samantha, and don't feel it's too dated (it's less popular than it was at its peak in the early 1990s, but as of 2011 still in the Top 20). If you like it I think it's very doable! I also like Amelia (though beware it's likely to become more popular, unlike Samantha which like many past-peak names will probably steadily decline for awhile).
