Baby #2 has a name!! :)
So DH and I finally came up with a name for Samuel Elliot's baby brother/sister (kind of) we're down to 2 middle names for Sebastian if its a boy. We threw out Emily and Abigail deciding they were to popular for us. We decided on Paisley for a girl after DH's mother suggested it but aren't sure on the middle name. We like Paisley Elizabeth but are open to other suggestions. What do you fellow berries think?
Sebastian Thomas is my favorite. I love it as a brother to Samuel Elliot.
Are you 100% set on Paisley? Honestly, I don't like it at all. Paisley has no substance. You threw out Emily and Abigail because of popularity, yet Paisley isn't much better. With all of the -ley/-lee/-lei/-leigh names occupying the charts right now, Paisley would be lost in a sea of sound-alike names.
We really like Paisley and are leaning toward using it but we are still open to suggestions since we're not due until September and have time to find a name. Paisley isn't yet in the top 100 so the popularity of it doesn't bother me as much as Abigail and Emily which are in the top ten. I'd love to hear any names you think we might like. Names that aren't overly popular but aren't to out there.
I like the suggestions Paisley Eleanor and Paisley Jane. I have a sister named Gabrielle and DH has a sister named Brielle so we don't want to use those.
I think the name Paisley does have substance because it is the name of a city as well as being just a word name. The port city gave paisley its name. That is what I learned in school .
I never understood Sebastian, or it's popularity. I personally hate the name. I find it to be too whimsical and wimpy for a boy and there are no good nicknames for it. I think it would make a fine name for a cat, however...
Paisley sounds very hillbilly to me. It doesn't seem like a name that much thought was put into (like Tinsley).
I really don't like Paisley at all. This isn't a name that's going to stand the test of time, it's going to date very fast. Also her sibling already has a classic name, Emily and Abigail were a lot closer in style than Paisley. I would try find an underused classic like: Eleanor, Penelope, Amabel or Louisa.
Sebastian Thomas is lovely.
I love the name Sebastian, and I like both combos.
I see a previous poster mentioned Penelope, which is what I was going to suggest as an alternative to Paisley. Or since you like the name Emily, did you rule out any of the other variations, like Emmeline or Amelia?
My 4 yr old niece is Paisley, the first we've ever heard. And it's perfect.
Her whole name is Paisley AnneMarie after her grandmothers. I like it. But I think your choice of Elizabeth is beautiful.
Paisley Jane works too. It's such a welcoming first name for middle names!
My favorite part - My son has always called her Pais-uh-lee. 3 syllables. And recently he shortened it to "Pais". It just cracks us all up - he's only 9 months older than her!
