Help with baby girl #1
I am new here, and my husband and I are TTC #1. I'd love your opinions on our list of names for a little baby girl.
Feel free to be honest, you won't hurt my feelings. We want to keep the name a surprise to our family, as we'll be finding out what we're having.
Is Lorraine a family name? It's a lovely, vintage choice. I like Avery Lorraine and Aubrey Lorraine.
I was like, "Ooh....I really like the sound of Sophia Lorraine," and then it occurred to me: Sophia Loren :) Of course, Sophia is the number one name right now, so maybe Aubrey Lorraine?
I'm quite partial to the name Lorraine... it's my middle name, my mom's middle name, and my great-aunt's first name. Sophia & Avery both sound great with Lorraine (as does Amanda, if I do say so myself!)
I like Audrey Lorraine best.
Avery Lorraine - It flows nicely, but the style of the names are very different. Avery is very tomboyish and modern, Lorraine very vintage.
Audrey Lorraine - Very lovely.
Aubrey Lorraine - Pretty as well.
McKinley Lorraine - Least favorite. M/K trendy name clashes with old-fashioned Lorraine.
Sophia Lorraine - sounds like Sophia Loren.
Sophia Audrey - Sophia's too popular, and I'm not sure it flows.
Abigail Lorraine - Nice, but Abigail is a little too trendy for me.
I really like Audrey Lorraine and Audrey Sophia for you. Both have a lot of class and Old-Hollywood glamour.
What's the significance of Lorraine? I prefer your first 3 choices (all the As except for Abigail) since Sophia is really a bit too popular and I like the Avery/Aubrey/Audrey trifecta.
Great feedback, thank you! For those asking the significance of Lorraine...
Lorraine is mine and my Aunt's MN and my first cousin once removed's first name.
Audrey is my Grandmother's name.
I love the name Audrey Lorraine
