2nd Daughter due to arrive next week...
We have one daughter double first named Cornelia Carter and she goes by Cece. We are set to welcome our second daughter and cannot find anything that is exactly right. We would love to give her a double first name like her sister. We both love the second name Louise, it also honors both sides of the family. Currently we have agreed on Sadie Louise and Livia Louise, but neither seem to be the clear choice. I thought someone may have some suggestion or help us pick the clear winner.
still thinking of names....
Cece does have a middle name. Her full name is Cornelia Carter Drechsler S. She is also under three so we call her Cece but I am hopeful that she will want to use her full double first name in a few years (maybe when she can write both). We intend to also give this baby four names. first name Louise Harper S. I would love for her to go by both her first names but I realize that isn't always the case. If we use Sadie Louise I would prefer either both names or Sadie Lou. My family has generations of double first names mostly the are something Lou. So I would really like to keep Louise in the second spot.
I am not a fan of Sarah in any form. I did look further a field at Cerelia and Sarina.
If we went with our other choice Livia Louise. I am afraid we wouldn't use both names or Louise would get dropped. I am concerned that Livia is too close to Olive and Olivia and the poor girl will be forever correcting everyone.
We have a niece that is the same age as our daughter that is a Margaret nn Maggie.
One of my Sisters is Mamie Claire (double first name)
Our last name is a short german name that starts with a SCH so it creates a really hard shift phonetically.
Here is our longer list...
Adela or Adeila
Lela or Leila
We liked Wilhelmina but my sis in law is due in a few months and her boy name is william IV so we felt we couldn't use it.
I am still hopeful the perfect name will appear before she does;)
