I have fallen in love with the name Bay. I love that it reminds me of a hotel in Vegas and that it reminds me water. And sailing... Can it stand on it's own? I don't like Bailey or any of it's spellings. I just think that Bay is a beautiful name. What do you think of the name Bay? Any middle name suggestions you could give me? Thanks. :-)
I think Bay can stand on it's own, and would look especially beautiful with a long feminine middle name, like:
Alexandra/or another variation like Alessandra
Yes! I think Bay is a wonderful name.
some ideas for middles names could be
I like it. I love it as a quirky nickname for Laurel (bay leaf / a bay laurel).
I think it can stand on its own. It definitely needs a longer and more feminine middle. Something classic or old-fashioned would work well to balance how short and modern Bay is. Maybe there's a family name you'd like to use? I liked the suggestions of Bay Alessaundra and Bay Juliette. I would avoid pairing it with color names like Scarlett or Violet or anything that sounds like a place name because that makes it sound like you're talking about an actual bay, like the geographical term, instead of the name of a girl.
What do you guys think of Bay Madeline? My name is Madison, so Madeline is a way to honor me without using my entire name. More opinions would be great! Thanks. :-)
Bay Madeline is lovely. Bay is a great name-- bright, happy, nature-related without being over-precious or too quirky. It's also a fairly strong name; I suppose its most famous bearer is Bay Buchanan. Also I certainly, certainly don't agree with her politics she is a strong woman who carved a niche in a man's world back when it was almost unheard of.
Bay is too short for my taste but lovely in general, quirky and strong.
This may not be the least bit helpful, but a girl I knew in school was called Beatrice, but one of her parents was French and pronounced it "Bay-uh-treece", and her nn was Bay. I always thought it was cute.
