not usable names though more like 'joke' names like North West :)

Chosen for the meaning 'behold a son' and 'wanted/ prayed for' because he was 3 years in the making and an IVF baby. Also I am a teacher and wanted a name I hadn't taught before and...
I love Cordelia...but I'm biased, mine has just turned 5 years old. She's Cordelia Jane and her sister is Persephone Lily (middle names are family names) her brother is Reuben Saul.
I was just thinking yesterday how much I like this name and Alfred. I like the nn Bertie and Albie. I also like Franklin and know of a little boy who is named Franklin James who gets called Frankie...
I love it and get complimented on it all the time :) My son likes the fact that no one else in his school has this name. The sandwich hasn't been a problem but older people have asked if I'm...

Harriet sister to Bridie and Eleanor
I am thinking of taking Athena/Artemis and Evanthe off the list now. Athena is very popular but I hadn't thought about how matchy these names are with Persephone.
So glad you adore Miriel too...
So as it stands, if I can add up correctly:
Thank you for all the votes and comments. It helps to see what people like and why and what connection I feel to the name. I'm liking that Evanna is getting so many votes and sad that Isadora...
Cordelia - jewel of the sea
Genevieve/Jennifer/Geneva - white wave
Nerissa - from the sea
Try this link to a similar question...
Thank you for all your votes :)
Privacyplease - so happy you think Miriel is magical that's how I feel about it too.
Katerinam - I love Evanna it feels unique but known because it's 2 well known...
For boys names we have a short, short list but for girls...there are just too many I like!
So from our list which would you pick as a top 3 as a sibling to Reuben, Cordelia and Persephone?
Valentine is lovely. I think that Valentine and Phoenix is a great sibset. I'm of the opinion that middle names don't have to 'go' with the first name, they can be honour names or just a bit of fun....

I'm not shy about using names I love but...
Cleopatra - we nearly did it for DD2 because we like Cleo but felt it was insubstantial. I still really like it but it is too linked to the Egyptian...
Just 3? So hard with so many great names.
I'm 2/3 of the way there so...

What about Emilia as a longer name for Emma? You still get all the nicknames you like and maybe you can feel satisfied with her name. Good luck.

Violetta sounds good. What about Viola?

Can't believe I missed this thread!
I think you have great taste. Ty also fits in with all the Tyler's and Tyrone's out there too :)
Cordelia is a great choice! We call ours Cordy and DeeDee but that is rather close to Vivi. I've heard Coco, Lia and Della as nn for Cordelia. I also like Cora. Good luck choosing :)

Ummm I have the same dilemma with the name Margaret. It is an honour name so do I go with Margaret or a variation like Pearl? I think I've come to the conclusion that it has to be Margaret. It is...

Love your list. I'm British too and don't see a problem with Henrietta.
I'm loving Evangeline at the moment. It was about #300 last year. It has lots of nicknames and is literary.

I would pronounce it just like you Mad-a-len :)
Thanks for the replies :)
Sarahdoodle I have the extended version of the movies! They are the best. I really need to read more of Tolkien. I love good literature. I marvel at a mind so deep it can...
Thanks for the reply Sarahdoodle I was beginning to think I was on my own in my Tolkien love :/ I was looking at the new movie characters and found that they have introduced 'Turiel' a female...
