Not to blow your mind, but
could totally have the nickname "Beatle" :)

I like Zoe, or any other name that means "Life." But especially Zoe. (I think Eve is a little heavy in this situation).
You are not defining her by her illness. You are affirming that she is a...
It was quite a process to land at the name Ruby Elizabeth, but I would love to also find a nickname. I know that Ruby is fairly nickname-proof name. What about the combo or Ruby Elizabeth?

Btw, for anyone who wanted an update on this very old and long thread ...
I called my daughter "Ruby" for her first year of life even though her birth certificate was blank and I wasn't sure, and...

Eloise is a great name. I ended up dropping the names I was hooked on because I overthought everything. I loved the name Sophie for 10 years and then I didn't use it because it was #1. Well now...
My daughter is Ruby and I'm toying with the idea of Gray for a boy. Ruby & Gray doesn't feel tacky to me, but I understand if others disagree. I also think that some combos feel tackier than...

I really dislike Gemma. It feels made up to me ... like two tween girls talking about modifying Jenna to make Gemma, because it's so much more awesome. I know it's an old name ... still feels like...

Just about a year ago I posted a similar desperate thread ... because my daughter was 2 weeks old and I still wasn't sure of her name, although I thought it would probably be Ruby.
I think Penelope Juniper is lovely. And love your nicknames.
Yes, that was me, but I am trying to keep this thread generic to keep it from being about me.
But, to the extent you are curious, I am just trying to solidify the legal name, which I never filed...
What do you think is the best safe name for a girl? Suppose your only goal was to give a completely safe/classic/unremarkable name. What would you choose?

I would hesitate before going to a doctor named Lilac. Even if my brain told me her name didn't matter ... it would affect my comfort level.
It's easy to say I like the name when I think of a...
And that's how you explain it. "It was the only name I adored, and it's the name I felt belonged to her. I couldn't walk away from that. I know it's not ideal, but I hope you can understand that...
I don't see why the name is off limits. It's a second cousin. You love the name. Your daughter will have this name for her entire life. Everyone will get over it. Your loyalty should be to...
What are some names that you consider to be very sophisticated, but also accessible and not "trying too hard" For example, whether you consider them sophisticated or not, I'd say that Elizabeth is...

The racial arguments about the Kardashians are silly. "White Trash" is a socially defined thing. There is no reason this social grouping has to care about what anthropologists decide or what the...

Pam, I reread your response too ... and I really really appreciate it. The point about her loving her name - that is so reassuring to me. Who cares whether the other "moms" think I named her right....

ok ok ... even if I never have real closure, I'll stop harassing people here with my neurosis :) No more on this. People have definitely been super supportive. And this thread did help. ...

Why is the birth certificate so important? A birth certificate is a piece of administrative paper. I have a middle name on my own birth certificate that does not exist for me irl anywhere else,...

Hi Blade :)
oh sure - all the psychobabble totally applies. I'd be less worried about giving a baby the name "Snookums" if the kid had everything else going for her. That's why celebrities can...

I don't think I can change it. I've struggled with this for so long, and even when I fully gave myself permission to change it, I couldn't. Nothing was a strong enough alternative on its own to...

I named my daughter Ruby, and I've come here for help so many times ... and any time I've wanted to change it, I look at her but "Ruby" just sticks and there's no "aha" name that trumps it. So...
My 6 month old daughter is Ruby, and my 13 year old dog is Zelda. ;) Good luck with your choice. And I used to have a ferret Roxie.

I *love* that it's a loose woman's name. That's part of the charm. It's a loose woman's name from the 1920s. You don't need to worry that people will think your daughter is flirting with the boys...
