Older name with southern flair
Hi there, I'm new-ish around here and am expecting #3. This time around, I'm not finding anything that I love and could use some help!
We already have Hugh Augustin James and Georgiana Claire Evangeline. They go almost exclusively by Gus and Georgiana. I really like older sounding names with a southern flair (we live in the south). I like British names, too.
We don't want another G name, nothing with "Anne" or "Anna" b/c of Georgiana, and our last name is similar to Shafer.
My current list for girls is:
Magnolia - not sure if this is *actually* usable.
Constance - I don't want this to get shortened to Connie, but don't know what alternative nicknames would be.
I'm also open to double first names, as they are pretty common around here and I think they're very girly and southern. Some that I like:
Mercy _____ (possibly Kate?)
Mary Hampton (Hampton is a family name)
I'm open to suggestions and would love to see what y'all think of my current list and what you can come up with! Thanks so much!
