Replacement of Alice
I posted earlier about our pregnancy and how to start finding names. Well, after some reading of lists and posts, it occurred to me that Alice embodied all I wanted in a girl's name. Husband liked it, it was sweet and old-fashioned and yet light-hearted.
SO, what's the problem? Our last name is Lewi$! Alice is a no-go, as are names ending with S, starting with L, and most with an L inside it.
What do you think would be a name like Alice for us. Other names I like all seem to have the accursed L, like Stella and Lucy. We also would like to honor a MaryAnn and have been thinking of Marie as a first name.
Alice is one of favorite names! Here are some others that I love:
I love Marie as a first name.
Marie for a first name is lovely!
Rose, Mae or Claire come to mind as names the are sweet and old fashioned.
Hmm, some maybes from my list could be:
Claudia, Darcy, Dorothy, Edith/Edie, Harriet/Hattie, Marian, Mercy, Quincy, Zelda, Zooey
