I think the name Marla is absolutely lovely I used to contemplate the name for a possible future daughter. However, I have a cousin with the name. I am wondering if my aunt meant it as a variation...
@findemaxa13: The older spelling is Rebecca, which was used in the Bible since at least the 4th Century A.D. (in the Latin Vulgate translation of the Bible). Centuries later, when the Bible was...
StripedSocks - Thank you for posting the "original" Hebrew version. In my post (at end of the prior page of this thread), when I explained the history of "Rebecca" as the older spelling, I did not...
I would recommend the spelling Sylvia. Otherwise, your daughter will go through life having to spell her name for everyone, and she will experience frequent misspellings of her name. Sylvia is one...
Yes, Rebecca is the older spelling. Before the Bible was translated into English, the "Latin Vulgate" Bible was used -- from the 4th Century A.D. -- and the name was spelled "Rebecca." Later when...
I am happy to hear that you've got things planned out and settled. I was going to suggest Jonas... with an eye towards Jonas Brian. I'm just mentioning it in case you need any additional back-up...

I think it's a beautiful idea to give your daughter the middle name Ayla. My mother's double first name (old-fashioned name, I know) was 'Mary Jane,' and I love it more than I can say that she gave...
My favorites are:
Martha Lilianne (I like this better than the hyphenated or double name options.)
Edith Juniper Wren
Eloise Charlotte Mae
Genevieve Iris Wren
Hazel Meredith Claire
Hazel Josephine Quinn
Iris Sophia Catherine
Iris Sophia Charlotte
Iris Genevieve Rain
Iris Genevieve Quinn...
You have some amazing names on your list! Here are my opinions:
Celia - okay, but not my style
Aisling - not my style at all. It has potential for frequent misspelling and mispronunciation....
Yes to Glen! I adore it as a middle name. As proof, my son oldest son is Daniel Glen. Granted, it's my father-in-law's middle name, and my husband asked if we could use it. I would have objected if...
I prefer Alexandra, which I've always viewed as regal and elegant. Alexandra is a more balanced and understated name with a cleaner, smoother sound. In contrast, the added fussiness of Alexandria...
Here's a vote for Lucy Pearl.
Congratulations on your pregnancy!
Both names are indeed elegant, classy, and beautiful. What great taste in names you have! However, for the first name, I would choose Elena... Elena Jane would be terrific!
I like Bridget Mary a lot!!!!

I prefer Isaac. It's a super handsome, underused name in my book. I would love to have used that name for a son. I tend to prefer traditional names, so it's harder for me to warm up to a name like...
To me, since I am not used to it, the pronunciation Clah-ra comes across as a bit awkward. It sounds unnatural and forced to say it that way. I do think she would struggle with constantly have her...
Wow, Iris is a gorgeous choice! I would love to name a daughter Iris. Much as I also love the name Eve, I think Iris Josephine flows better. (Personally, I am not crazy about Eleanor, but it's...

P.S. Adding to my last post: In addition to spelling headaches, the unexpected "Isobel." would also invite mispronunciations. People will look at the name and wonder how to say it. Your daughter...

I prefer Isabel - a thousand times more. In my opinion, Isabel is prettier. On the other hand, not only does Isobel have a harsher look, but it will virtually guarantee that her name will be...

Clara Tufts is absolutely wonderful!!! No need to look any further. (Ava is nice enough, but I much prefer Clara, especially with Tufts. My second favorite would be Sylvia.) Do you have a middle...

Actually, the Hebrew spelling is an entirely different alphabet (no English letters). In English, "Rebecca" is the older spelling, which appears in the Latin Vulgate version of the Bible from the...
