  1. Dahlia, Dalia, or other D-names with middle name Eluned

    I've recently fallen head over heels for the Welsh name Eluned - the sound, meaning, and history are all perfect for our family. Eluned is pronounced much like Eleanor, if Eleanor ended in -ed. ...

    I think somewhere between 2 or 4 is a good range for me as well, but here are all my favorites. It's tough for me to build sib-sets because I don't like too much repetition. At the same time, there...

    Dahlia Elisabeth - too morbid?

    I've been loving this combo, but I'm afraid people might think of the Black Dahlia murder. I only found out about this connection because of the comments on BtN, but it's a pretty dark story - and...

    I really like Rosemary Eira! Thanks, that will go on the list.

    It's actually not that she dislikes it; it's why-- she says she's known four "evil" Rosemarys, and I'm a little superstitious about...

    Rose Marina?

    We're considering this as an alternative to Rosemary. I still love Rosemary, but my MIL hates it, and we're finding it difficult to pair with a middle.

    I haven't seen anyone bring this up yet-- my concern about Clemency is not the similarity to Mercy; it's that your OP implies you already have a son with the middle name Clement. Clement and...

    Ottilie, thanks for saying that about Persephone. Despite being a survivor [of various things] myself, I would not have thought about it that way. I appreciate the perspective very much.

    I agree with Freya -- as much as I would like to say that any person can thrive with any name, there is actual science to contradict that. It's often a relatively subtle thing, but I still don't...
