Say: Hi girls! Lovely names!
Think: Violet's name is lovely. I wish Amelie had a different middle. Clara's name is stunning, but I am confused by the pronunciation...? When I try it it sounds british- which is lovely, but may confuse people!
Here are my three kids. Margaret Petunia is the oldest. Edward Russell is the middle child. Regina Daisy is the youngest. Margaret is always called Midge, Edward is a junior and therefore goes by Rus, and Regina goes by Ina most of the time.
Say: Hello, Midge, Rus & Ina!
Think: Margaret, Edward, and Regina is a really cute set! Russell is the only MN I like though.
This is Wisteria Kate and Saskia Jane.
Say: Hello Wisteria and Saskia!
Think: I would have preferred Kate Wisteria and Saskia Jane - they're just a bit matchy-matchy for me.
This is my son Nicholas Lindsay, who goes by Nico.
Say: Hey, Nico! Cool name!
Think: I love Nicholas nn Nico. I'm not so crazy about Lindsay, on either gender, but it works as a middle name. I think it could grow on me.
This is my daughter, Chloë Evangeline.
Say: Hello Chloë!
ThinkL This is such a wonderful name! Chloë sounds even more beautiful with Evangeline.
This is my daughter Ashley Florence
Say: Hi Ashley!
Think: Seriously? Another Ashley? I know like at least 20 Ashleys, that name is SO tired out. Florence is absolutely stunning. It's a real shame that it's the middle name.
This is my daughter Zara Elisabeth. She typically goes by Zara though her daddy likes to call her Zee. :)
Say: Hi Zara! Our names are very similar!
Think: Zara is cool. I like the more classic Elisabeth as the middle. I prefer the spelling Elizabeth, but would assume it is honouring a family member with that spelling. The nickname Zee is way cute.
These are my children. Simon Tobiah is the oldest, and then twins Felix Percival and Clio Jemima are younger.
Say: Hi kids! Nice to meet you.
Think: Simon is a great name. Tobiah is really unique, but I'm glad it's the middle name, otherwise I think people would always mistake him for Tobias. Felix is cute, though I really hate the middle name. Clio is cute in its own way, but I almost feel like it's something you'd name a cat. I do love Jemima for a middle name.
Meet my daughter Raina Elizabeth.
Say: Hi, Raina!
Think: Raina is a beautiful name, but Elizabeth seems too common and bland with it. Evangeline or Emerson would have worked better.
Meet my kids-- Lyla Clementine, Celia Hazelle, and Jude Alexander.
Say: Hello, children!
Think: The FNs are quite short (I prefer a lengthier first name) but I adore their middle names.
This is Morgan Arabella and Lillian Felicity. Lillian goes by Lia.
