Replacements for Stella
I've FINALLY accepted the fact that my number one name, Stella, will simply NOT work with my last name. Stella is therefore off my "to use" list and on to my "could never actually use" list. The problem, however, is that she needs to be replaced! My second favorite girl name right now is Julie, but Julie does not have the same appeal to me that Stella did. Neither does Heather, Leah or Paige. Bridget would probably my next best option, if my sister-in-law was not planning on using it.
So, what are your suggestions as a replacement for Stella? Middle name will be Claire if she's the first girl. Soleil if it's the second. Thank you!
I tried looking up names that mean star like Stella, but none are really your style. Maybe Danica?
Other names that remind me of stella.
Sorry. Should have mentioned that ANY -la names won't work, and the majority of names starting with "L" as well. Excluding those options the rest are not really my style.
Joviejane, meaning is not important to me. Sound is. Nina is my favorite of your suggestions :)
Okay, so eliminating all L- and -la names, what about...
I got most of those suggestions by putting the names you mentioned into Nymbler (nymbler.com), which is an awesome resource if you haven't already checked it out.
Since you like Nina, what about Nona? I read on a blog somewhere about a little girl being named Nona Plum and I thought it was really sweet. I know you said probably no L names, but here are some anyway haha, just in case some work - Lucy, Lily, Lillian/Liliana, Louise, Lena, Lydia, Louisa, Laurel.
What do you think of Seren? It also means star. I don't know if it's exactly your style, but I think it's so beautiful. I would also suggest Alina. Sounds like Nina, which you mentioned you liked, and I think Alina Claire is stunning.
Okay, um, I trying to match the style of names in your signature. The good thing is I love every single name in your signature. (unfortunately some are taken by family for me ) The bad side, my naming style is all over the place.
