    I love Frankie!!! The only thing I would've liked better would be if she had chosen Frances instead and used Frankie as the nn, but if they are planning to call her Frankie anyway, there's something...

    I like Josephine, hate Frieda. There was a crotchety old lady on my street when I was a child--her name was Freda. I don't like Freya either, but that is way preferable to Frieda to me.

    I prefer Cora for sure, except for the fact that Cordelia is after your gma. I love family names. And esp since you plan to shorten it to Cora or Cory (Cora is so much better!), I think using your...

    I have a soft spot for Gloria (makes me think of the little sister from the Frances children's books), so I prefer Madeleine Gloria. Madeleine and Rosemary are two of my fave names, btw! I have...

    Yay! That nn idea (Mads/Madsie) was what allowed me to be able to use the name; before that I was too put off by Maddie. :)

    I LOVE Frances Belle the best. I think of all your choices, it brings the most femininity to the name. But I love Frances Bea too--very cute. I don't really like Maybelle, though I do think it sounds...

    I love Madeleine too; we were torn whether to use it (prn "lehn" at the end) or Madeline (prn "line" at the end). We ultimately went with Madeline for our daughter, and it fits her perfectly. We...

    Thanks everyone! Loved reading your opinions. I just casually said to hubby, "Since we both like Elsa, we *could* skip Elizabeth and go straight to Elsa." I got no response--haha. That usually means...

    I will jump on the doula wagon with you. That is a great suggestion to put your mind at ease, I think. Find someone you connect with and can trust that she will do everything she can to help things...

    Question--if anyone else sees this. I had the thought in the middle of the night that maybe I could swing Sal as a nn for our fave name, Alexander. I know it's a bit of a stretch, but maybe not so...

    OK, thanks. I appreciate all the suggestions, Mischa and Waverly. I *might* be able to handle Solomon or Samuel--like both of those, and I could stretch it with the nn Sal, I think. OR, as Mischa...

    Thoughts on Salinger, nn Sal

    I have been thinking about this for awhile and finally decided to post. I love the name Sal for a boy but I feel like it needs a longer full name. I don't really like Salvador or the variants of...

    I definitely see your point. I actually prefer Remy for a girl (and I don't usually like unisex names on a girl) and Remy Olivia is very very pretty. This is why you don't tell people your name picks...

    It's just nice to know others relate, even though rationally I realize there's no reason to be sad or jealous, in this case; I mean, I could still use the name on a future daughter, if I so desired....

    I know some think it's too nickname-y but I think Kizzie would have been really cute and unusual. Kizzie Donda West or how about Kizzie Nora West? Nora still combines their middle names (Noel and...
