I would not change a child's name. If I were to adopt internationally (unlikely, but it could happen) and had a name that was very hard to pronounce in English, I would choose an English middle name...

My first thought was to pronounce it Ellen-uh, but I also use that pronunciation for Elena. I've known more than one Elena with that pronunciation, and none called eh-lay-nuh. I'm not sure the...
Definitely have been there! I had a name crush on Junia for while, but when I say it aloud, it just sounded like I was saying "junior" in a fake Southern accent. Elowen also sounds lovely in my...
All of those could be side effects of the Pill, for sure. When I went on it, I had a bit of an adjustment. I had nausea quite often for the first month or two, but it died down. I didn't have...
I hope everyone is doing okay. We've been pretty quiet lately on our thread. I am still waiting to ovulate. On Saturday morning, the doctor thought it was coming so I cut short a weekend away to...

Haha, lots of fun ones in here.
Just now I was going through papers in my drawer at work, and found that loads of them had names in the margins... or combos... or lists of names obviously taken...
@dinosaursroar - ack, how did I forget Ezra?! That's my nephew's name.
A few more 4-letter options:
Some 4-letter biblical boy names:
Abel (love this one!)
Shem (kind of odd, but I knew a guy by this name growing up)

I echo everyone else, but want to add that as Swish said, although peeonastick.com doesn't exist, some wonderful soul archived the site and you can still read it here: ...

Some Hindi names that might work, most of which are short and fairly easy to say/spell:
@Karamia - I guess it doesn't feel like good news because it's exactly what the last doctor told me in April, so it's kind of telling me what I already knew. It felt like the only reason we had to...
Another update from me (sorry, I'm just talking and talking about myself :D ):
I had a follow-up appointment at the clinic this morning. I have a new doctor, because my doctor has gone on early...
Thanks @Karamia. I am not feeling anything different so far. I have no idea about coming off of Clomid, though it would make sense that anything hormonal would affect your cycles.
I've only known one person by that name, and she pronounced it with the emphasis on the first syllable like @lightsea said.
Congratulations! She has a lovely name. Wishing you and your family all the best. <3
@Backtomyroots - Welcome to the group. I'm sorry it's been such a long road for you. I hope you have good news very soon.
Update: I had my day 3 ultrasound on Saturday and the doctor decided to...
I was 17 and it was my second date with my first boyfriend. He took me to see a matinee of Rent (he'd gotten tickets for Christmas), and afterwards drove me home. I think he said something like,...
@amoser - I am so, so sorry. That's so sad. Sending you lots of love.
@mdeast - Thanks for asking. They still haven't called me about the results, so I'm assuming she is okay... She has been...
I default to Helen-uh, which is my favourite pronunciation, but I know a lot of people here say He-lay-nuh. I don't know if it would annoy me the first time, but one of my biggest pet peeves is when...
The Remedy was interesting, but rather disjointed, like reading several books in one. Still, I learned some things and am very thankful for modern medicine! I've started The Sound and the Fury...
@Shilo - I'm sorry you're going through all that. It sounds really frustrating. Sending you positive vibes.
I had my blood test and it was a BFN. Feeling really bummed. I got the call as I was...
I'm still driving my first car (got it at age 26) and she is named Svetlana. It was kind of an odd story: My degree is in Russian Studies, so my roommate at the time wanted my car to have a Russian...
