    I actually really love October nn Toby for a girl. October is a great, underused month name. And I fell in love w/Toby on a woman in Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam series (the character's a total...

    another question about Una

    After having posted a thread about whether this name seems prohibitively weird to Spanish-speakers (consensus: weird, but perhaps not prohibitively), I have another question:

    Does this name scream...

    What a nice name! At first I thought it was a variant spelling of Anya/Anja. But as you're pronouncing it, it's actually quite different. And also lovely!

    Both middle names you've proposed repeat...

    It's a somewhat old-school and/or medical term for "bowel movement," i.e. poop and/or the act of pooping.

    I'm curious about this as well, as my daughter could have a double-barreled last name with...

    Thanks all! And especially bedhead. If others have reactions, I'd love to hear them. We only have a few days to go and really need to decide.

    I think it's totally fine! Even people with totally common English names have to spell them for people. So there's no reason this should be that much harder for her than for anyone else. It's a...

    Joiya, thanks for the response! I think your close experience with the opinions of Spanish-speakers towards the name counts! Definitely not irrelevant. That's really helpful.

    Calling all native spanish speakers!!!

    Do you find the girls' name Una ridiculous? We're not Spanish speakers, and really love the name (which we pronounce just like the word for one feminine thing in Spanish). We're seriously considering...

    I think the fact that it's biblical really distinguishes it from other names that used to be popular. It's less trendy and more perpetually classy, IMO.

    I find it truly beautiful. It's also...

    Corinthea sounds perhaps a bit religious (Corinthians is a section of the New Testament, right?) If that's your thing, I think it's a wonderful name. If not, you might want to consider this...

    Except that in some accents (English?) Evelyn is pronounced Ee-vlyn. Like Evil-in.

    I grew up with a Hispanic Eva whose name was pronounced exactly as you would like: EH-va (as in, the way English people and others with non-rhotic accents pronounce Ever).

    I understand your confusion between Aliza and Eliza. The pronunciation of the two seems pretty arbitrary based on the spellings.

    But Aliza is ah-LEEZ-ah, whereas Eliza is ah (or el)-EYE-za....
