I desperately wanted to be called Rachel in the 90s thanks to Friends (yes, I am an 80s baby :)
But that aside, I'd love the name without that connotation too. I think it's a lovely sounding...
I think Esme is a beautiful name (if very tied up with the Twilight phenomenon) and I love the idea of Lenora to honour Dad. :)
Any combination of the two would be lovely imo, but for the unusual...
I've always loved Kristen as a name, even as a kid, it's been on my list of baby girl names :) And definitely don't automatically think KStew...
The only reservation I'd have is about it being...

Just wondering what your thoughts were on the use of this name as a stand alone first name (rather than as a NN for Samantha) and the appropriate spelling for it.
On the one hand I...
Jane Michaela has a better flow to me than Jane Marian when spoken aloud :)

I think Laina for sure. It's pretty, would age well, and works perfectly for the pronounciation you want.

I love Michaela. It was a name I had on my list actually. I've only met one Michaela and she was awesome :) So it probably influences my choice a bit.

Just watched the film "The Edge of Love" and heard the name Caitlin pronounced Kat-lynn. It jumped out at both me and the OH and we sort of turned to each other with a smile. The problem is that it's...

Definitely Mariska - it just jumped out at me :)

I think Fleur is beautiful and I wouldn't want to sacrifice it either. I'd go with either Gemma Hermione Fleur, or maybe have you considered Fleur Hermione Tallis?

Thank you for all the suggestions guys :) Of the ones you've mentioned - Aliyah, Mila and Lilah all sound great.
Bosmom - Maren Siena sounds beautiful <3
We love the idea of the nn Sisi, and...

Hi guys :)
I was wondering what your feelings are on the name "Sienna". I think it's pretty, but the lack of nn is bothering us slightly. I was also wondering if you had any suggestions for names...

I didn't know that :) I much prefer it too.

Thank you all so much for your input and votes :D
We have finally decided on Merida Rose Shelton ;) Thanks so much to whirlygig for the original suggestion of Merida *hugs* We absolutely love...

Thank you all so much. :)
As it stands the 3 winners by far are Merida Rose, Meredith Rose and Josephine Rose...
I'm so happy because Rose is an important name to both me and my OH so we...

Thank you all for helping me out in narrowing my list - it'd be great if you could vote for your favourite and tell me why you chose that particular one in a reply if you wouldn't mind. ;)

I know Rose is a typically filler middle name but I'm still considering it for my daughter because of the connection it has to mine and my OH's families... I think it's unfortunate that these names...
I agree with the consensus - Maya as in MY-a is gorgeous. I don't think it will get mispronounced with that spelling either.
December 10th, 2012, 04:44 PM
:D Thanks all. I think I'll do a poll of the most rated suggestions and see which gets the most votes :D
Thanks for your help!

:D I love Meredith and the suggestion Merida too... Although with both, I have slight concerns about pop culture references now - Meredith - Grey's Anatomy
Merida - Princess Merida from Brave...
Hermione Kate is beautiful - I just had to reply to say that. :)
Magnolia is a lovely name - I agree that Lia is probably a better NN than Mia and actually more unusual and prettier to my ears. And Lola is also a nice choice :)
As for a middle name, I'm...

Dinah reminds me of Alice's cat in Alice in Wonderland :) Lovely name though :)
As for Louise - (my apologies, it's Lois)
Biblical name of the mother of Eunice and grandmother of...
Hmmm. Based on your list of names you like, I'd suggest -

I went for Hadley Rebecca because I think the alliteration of an L name with Lincoln might be too much, plus Hadley is unusual and yet perfect with Lincoln. I think you have chosen some lovely names....
