Gaelic spellings ARE painful to pronounce. This is why my thought was to use that spelling, so it would intimidate people into simply using the middle, easier name I provide -- the entirely new name....
My name is a very trendy, anglicized spelling of a Scottish word (which may or may not be used as a name historically). I am in my 30s and know no one older than me, but a ton of younger girls, with...
From what I can tell, it was possibly a mashup a couple of centuries back between Hannah and Isabel that Paul Revere gave a daughter. With that in mind, maybe Iz-Anna is the intended prn? I think I...
Fairly obscure and sure to cause issues with pronunciation. What are your feelings/impressions about this name?
I have an aurelia and the names this nixed for us are: aurora, isaura, arabella, any -ia endings such as emilia (very sad to lose cordelia and lavinia), ottilie, lorelai, desiree, linnea, most a-...
Thanks for the suggestions about latin names -- but we didn't intend that! We're blonde, blue eyed Nordic heritage folk :D I named our daughter after a character in a movie I adore and it's so...
I like virtue names on the whole, but my husband doesn't so I have no experience with using one! I wouldn't call Prudence clunky per se, but I'm not keen on the whole sound of it said allowed. But I...
Sibs are Aurelia Rose, Cristian Alexander and b/g twins Dominic Wolfe and Luciana Celine.
Our fifth and final will be a girl. Our girls have names with "pretty" meanings and possible short forms....

I love Cecilia and Natalia.. But with the ia endings, I wonder if that's kind of kitschy to do and if we had three girls, would we do it with all three? Claudia is another -ia I like!

We don't know the gender, but older sibs are Aurelia Rose and Cristian Alexander. Possible boy options are Xavier, Nicolai, or Dominic. Girls have us stumped!!
What names complement these? Not...
Big sister Aurelia Rose
Big brother Cristian Alexander
We are liking names like Xavier, Maxwell, Nicolai and Dominic. Suggestions or combinations are welcome! Short last name, begins with N.
I know a Jameson. He is roughly thirty, very sleek person, black eyes, close cropped curls and facial hair. He's got a sense of humor but he's intimidating looking -- I'd say he was black irish from...
I don't know how to explain my question without giving examples (:
MARtine and aMARa ("mar")
ELise and GisELLE ("L")
AuRElia and DesiREe ("ray")
LETicia and VioLET ("let")
HonNOR and LeNORa...
I think Saskia and Cato are a great pairing. Different with an exotic but not OTT feel. I'm game!
I know the origins are different but I don't quite have a feel for if the pronunciations differ between Michaela, Micaela, and Mikhaila? What does this name make you think of?

Cashmere has an unpleasant clash of sounds... shmear... makes me think of goop you get on your shoes. Casmira/Casimira are names that are similar sounding without the association or shmmm sounds....
I knew a female Canaan, a very studious, direct and pleasant tween. I have great associations with the name, therefore I think it's fine :D

I have also met two children with very unfortunate names.... Royal Dong (vietnamese) and Glorious Johnson...
Bear with us guys... I know I post at least every week lol. We're trying to compile a list of names we can both stand!
So. We are not fond if Isabella, but have been considering the yays and nays...
I love the name Olivier for a girl!! I absolutely under no circumstances feel its a masculine name. Kind of like naming a boy Ashley. I've met some, can't get behind it! But Oliver is a stretch even...
Aura, Alyssa, Adele, Everly, Embry, Emilia, Isla -- these are some VOWEL names. Sometimes it helps to read :D
I liked the other suggestions of Avery and Em(m)erson; I was going to suggest them (: Harper is also similar in style. Madalyn, Parker, Ava, Aubrey, Sienna, Hadley, Bailey, Riley, Arliss might work!
I do like the idea of a college paired with a name that would be relatively common! If anyone has more college names that aren't super obvious (like harvard or yale etc), hit me! He definitely...
He's a masculine, self-sure, college educated (with above-average intelligence) 20-something-30-something business owner that has to demand a lot from himself to stay grounded. The darker side of...
I agree with prev. posters! I think because of the stress on certain syllables, some names make this more of a problem. Also that Sophie is a name all it's own (and highly recognizable). Mirand, on...
