Girl name ideas??
I'm looking for some new names to consider, and I'm hoping you guys will have some lovely ideas. I'm not really "against" common names, but I don't seem to like them as much in the long run. Other than that, my taste is very broad, so you can't go wrong with suggestions.
For an example of names I like, some of my favorites atm are:
unpaired names: Fallon, Marlow, Alanis, Lavinia, Eleni, Maeve, & Tamsin.
And, if you are feeling generous, any help on my boy name topic? That forum is definitely not as popular as Girl Names' is: Which MN do you like with Alfred? (suggestions welcome)
namelover77: Thanks! From your suggestions, I like the names: Mai, Noemi, Lux, Hestia, Perdita, Isis, Iolanthe, Clemence, Inara, Estelle, Runa, Carlotta, and Zoya.
isabellemarie: Grazie, I like Ianthe, Isis, Athalia, Amadea, and Nessa from your ideas.
noora: Glad you like them! From your suggestions, I am digging: Avalon, Olympia, Priya, Margo, Damaris, Aminta, Lenore, Franca, and Alma. Is Noora your real name, btw? Because it sounds lovely!
Yes, Noora is my real name. It's Arabic for light and very popular in the Middle East. My dad is Syrian. Noura and Nura are alternate transliterations. Noora is the feminine form, but Noor/Nur/Nour is unisex. I think Noor is more familiar in the western world than Noora because of Queen Noor of Jordan. I like them both. Noora works well in the US because its similar to Nora, just with an oooh. I've always thanked my parents for my name. :)
