He wont let go of....
PENELOPE. Our list is all over the place with combos and I want it shortened. Hazel is officially taken care of with the help of berries, TULIP had bad feedback so we are thinking about PETAL now since it is Greek and he is super Greek. But he wont let go of PENELOPE which I like but not sure if it is too popular. So I have to let him have a name he suggested since he has been trooper with my choices.
Combos we have are:
Penelope Juliet- family name
Penelope Juliet Snow
Penelope Juliet Marin
OTHER COMBOS ARE WELCOME! You can go wild in the middle spot (IMO) so nothing is too weird for me.
@bellerose- Thank you! I appreciate it :) from your combos you listed I like Penelope Rosaline Jane, Penelope WinterAurelia is out because its a name in our list as a first.
@Whilliemnia- from the ones you listed I like Penelope Marigold Snow, Penelope Leonora Juliet (worried there may be to many L sounds), Penelope May Juliet.
If you want a name that is obviously Greek, I wouldn't go with Petal. Nobody is going to hear the name Petal and think "Oh, it's Greek!"
Since it seems like he wants a Greek name, and you like flower names, what about an actual Greek name referring to flowers? There's Chrysanthe (golden flower), Ianthe (purple flower), or just Anthe, which means flower. This blogmight also help with ideas.
But personally, I LOVE Penelope, and think Penelope Juliet is lovely.
While Penelope isn't a personal favourite of mine, I prefer Penelope Snow.
Oh my goodness, Penelope Juliet Snow makes me gush. It's a wonderful name. Penelope Juliet and Penelope Snow are also great. I also like the suggestion of Penelope Winter. If you and your husband both like Penelope, use it! It isn't terribly popular but familiar enough to be pronounced and spelled easily. If you don't like it though, keep looking.
Some pretty Greek names:
Alexandra/Alexandrina/Alexandria Juliet Snow
Aphrodite Juliet Snow
Athena Juliet Snow
Callista Juliet Snow
Calliope Juliet Snow
Cassia Juliet Snow
Carissa Juliet Snow
Delia Juliet Snow
Dorothea Juliet Snow
Elena Juliet Snow
Hermione Juliet Snow
Nerissa Juliet Snow
Olympia Juliet Snow
Persephone Juliet Snow
Philomena Juliet Snow
Tullia Juliet Snow (in honor of your choice Tulip?)
Why don't you use Penelope Tallulah or Penelope Thalia or Penelope Toula (Tula) and call her Petal? It's a quirky nickname that daddy loves with a "big girl" name with pizazz. Add another middle if you like - Penelope Tallulah Gem, Penelope Thalia Fleur, Penelope Toula Celeste?
@mega_muffin- We aren't into Greek names I just found it super sweet how it meant flower in Greek. It was like an added bonus. And he likes it much better then Tulip after I had mentioned some of the teasing that can happen and how Tool would be in our child's name. I do like Chyrsanthe but I highly doubt he would like that name at all. He is so weird and surprises me every time with names.
@mrse- Thank you for putting in a vote!
@fiammetta- Its not my favorite but I don't hate it and he seems to like it a lot so I have to keep it on the list for him. And it goes with all of our boy choices which is a plus.
@axps123- Thank you! I was shocked he even liked Penelope Juliet Snow which is probably our front runner name, then Penelope Juliet and Penelope Snow. Thank you for suggesting some names! I love Olympia! I tried getting him to like that because I had paired it with Hazel and he won that battle.... With Tullia it still has that Tool sound to it if I am pronouncing it right which he did not like. I love Aphrodite as well! I am going to see how he feels about that name. Not sure if that is too out there for his taste. He always surprises me with names/combos.
