@truenature - Eh, I got stuck with Zuzia so I benched her for awhile. I have a couple of good combos and they tick the boxes, but I’m having trouble envisioning actually naming a baby Zuzia Jane...
@ciottolo's Skandar Christian Raphael. I salute you for this one. Skandar and Raphael are both tricky names to use, and this combo is the perfect balance of adventure and refinement.
I say it as Rose plus Mary. Rose-mree is a pet peeve! I'm in the U.S.
Jonathan, Quillan, and Ragnar have been my husband's picks over the last decade.
It seems more like a "thing" than a name, like a creature or race or something. I don't really care for Gray either, and I can't understand using such a drab color as a name in the first place, so...
I think I could make an argument for Xoana as a middle name, and as the only "weird" name in a combo. Constance and Serafina are both "normal" and "favorites" in the man's book (for whatever...

@mousehouse, @truenature & @saraB
Thanks for the comments! I think I’m on a much better track now.
Constance is being difficult. I have stacks and stacks of combo ideas that I’ve worked on...

@2ndtime - Thanks! I'm still not "sold" on that one as a first but it's still "simmering" for now.
I think that Genevieve gets you both Evie and Vivi as potential nns, and I think it sounds best with mn Anne. I definitely would eliminate Evangeline, because eve-ANN-jel-een ANNE is, well, a lot of...

@sunniva - Thank you for commenting & especially the nn suggestions.
@oceansunrise - Nice combos! We’re pretty set on using the names from the list. Good picks though, we already have an Eve!...

Well, after all that, I DID find a "Nicole" name that emphasizes the "Cole" part: Colanthe. This one is pretty amazing because it's a legit Greek name (not made up! not a smoosh!) that has the "Cole"...

Instead of Max, might you like Pax, Paxton, Dax, Rex, or Lex (from Alexander)?
Only you can decide whether the popularity bothers you... but yes, many times those popular names are just because...

@bellerose - Well, thanks! Zuzia Meg Iolanthe is growing on me a bit, I like the quirky mix of this and that, and Meg to Peg is obvious enough for the MIL, and Iolanthe is crazy-nerd enough for my...

I second this.

@truenature - Ha, well being ridiculously sick for the first half of a pregnancy will give you time to sit around re-categorizing your name lists. I think Zuzia has me beaten, though. You know, it...

@opheliaflora - I don't think I have tried putting Mairead up with Constance, I can't remember. Pearl works and I've looked at it several times, but it just doesn't sing for me. I put both back on...

@greyer - Awesome you have somebody who likes doing that kind of work. You'll be fine if you don't have to do all of it yourself. Refinishing furniture is kinda one of those things that people...

I ran the revised list by my husband, and he likes:
Zuzia Dagny Annika
Zuzia Nikola Rose
Neither of us is very sure about using Nikola since we already have Tesla as a middle name, though we...

Also, I have seen this question a couple of times and I can't recall exactly who has asked, but I love Motherhood for maternity clothes. Mostly because they carry petite size jeans! ...

@greyer - Be careful about any stripping fluids you have to use to refinish the wood, as well as the oil-based varnishes. My husband and I do a lot of DIY home projects but those are things you have...

Appreciate the honest feedback, @adelina_sophia!
I prefer Marion on a guy and Marian on a girl. Still, I think that Miriam is the modern choice.
In reference to the Mary thing, Mary is a variation of Miriam, so it's a Mary-name any way you...

Eden and Eve are the only names that have very obvious Christian connections. The others are good if you'd like a "hidden" meaning of the name. You'll be amazed at how many "hidden meaning" names...
May 29th, 2015, 11:38 AM
Zane? It's a variation of John. Steffan? Alexander with Xander for short?
May 29th, 2015, 11:24 AM
Awesome, thanks for the input. I totally agree that some of these are getting weird, AND that Opal Autumn Zorica is just right. I'm trying to find that same kind of balance for Zuzia, but I'm past...
