How made up does it sound when you add Belle?Still hoping to change my username Sweet Amara... Fingers crossed!
I loved Elsa before it she was cool I saw her as this mystical, magical, completely unique, baffling and all her own kind of girl. She'd also honour my grandmother and great-grandmother from Deutschland.
Ronan will be my future son's name for the sake of spicy, little boys wearing plaid shirts, running around in kneeless jeans, playing in the mud and being mischievous. And in memory of Ronan Sean Thompson.

It depends upon the name - I generally like -belle, -anna and -beth names.
I like Rosabelle, Amabel, Emmabelle, Kirabelle, Corabelle, Lilabelle....
I don't see them as the same as other "madeup" names. These are two real names combined, not random sounds shoved together. I wouldn't use them, though, because they probably wouldn't age really well. Maybe for a middle or a good GP list, lol.

I love Adabelle! Adabeth, too.
Name "smushes" can be iffy, but I generally don't think they sound made up, particularly when they have those typical compound name endings: -belle/-bel, -anne/-anna, -beth, -lee, -el/-elle, and so on. It's when you start getting into Reneesmee territory that the names start feeling made up and hopelessly awkward. There's a big difference, in my mind, between something like Christabel and something like Janisapril.

It depends. I can't stand most belle/bella names (totally overdone and just annoying to me now, sorry to those that like them). The only one I like is Annabel (spelled that way). I think names like Isabelle, Annabel, and similar are fine. Names like say, Gracibelle, Arabella, etc sound too cutesy and a little made up to me. Like, hey I like this name, let's throw "belle/bella" on the end of it so it's cute for my little baby princess!
But like I said, it really depends on the name. Some sound fine (even if they're NMS at all), others sound like a smoosh name.Top 10 girl's names: Serena * Audrey * Sienna * Bridget * Lucy * Hazel * Cordelia * Josephine * Claire * Alice
