Thread: I Need Berries Opinion Please...

Thanks for the help so far Berries. I was really excited to read your ideas. Honestly, I am not completely set up on these names, yet, they are still the top for me. Maybe I should also state that I have no connection to Indian ancestry, I just adore diverse and cultural names with a twist of classic, sophistication/elegance. Not necessarily leaning toward biblical names. If I find a certain appeal, I do not mind weighing my options. I have seen so many great names, I just thought Berries can help me narrow things now to help me get on the right track toward names I love.
@violetgray: I have a soft-spot for Colton. I love the name but it will work against my last name. I loved the fact that Co-was the first two initials of my first name; Le: from my Middle; but, unfortunately ton: is part of my last. Lol
@ashthedreamer: Yay, another soon-to-be adoptive mommy. Excited, since you are the only one I have seen so far that has mentioned adoption. If I am not prying to much, are you planning to adopt locally or internationally. I am hoping to adopt locally.

My husband and I are planning to adopt our children as well, but won't begin the process for about 2 years (we're both just beginning graduate school). It's always so exciting to see other people who are interested in adoption. We're planning on domestic adoption, and infant adoption is our preferred age.
Liliana is pretty, but a little too frilly for my tastes. I much prefer Lily or Lillian. Tobiah is cool, but I don't like the nickname Toby.
For using ethnic/diverse names, I would feel uncomfortable using an extremely distinct ethnic name for a child who has no ties to that culture. I know some names blur the lines (Genevieve, Aidan, Cruz), but I feel like it has taken some time to get there. That's maybe just me, though,
Good luck on your adoption process!

Well, I noticed that you plan to adopt locally, but before I knew that I assumed your possible baby would be from another country because of the middle names. Not that it's a bad thing, just an observation. I'm all for exotic names. And you did say you were interested in exotic and mythological names, so my first thought was that Liliana and Tobiah, along with your other first name options, don't sound very exotic. However, your middle name options (Aurora, Orion, Rajani, Ravi, Sage & Phoenix) are exotic and/or mythological. I like all your choices so far, but my personal preference would be Aurora and Orion as first names, and I would prefer Tobias instead of Tobiah.http://www.onceuponatimebabynames.com/

Congratulations on your future adopted son or daughter! You have great naming taste and it is almost impossible to decide between them all except that I would still spell Orion as such even if it has to move to the first name spot.
Liliana and Tobiah are great as a sibset - perfect, beautiful.
Chloe Sage and Cadence Aurora are both beautiful choices I love the combos. I think that the 'berries' will consider Chloe too popular and Cadence not enough 'on trend' but all that aside they are great choices.
Chandler Phoenix and Courtland Arion I love the name of Chandler it is very handsome a great choice, however I do not like Phoenix it is a little dated now and while I see that you have a theme going I don't like this choice. You may like Chandler Lane, Chandler Elliott, Chandler Felix.
Courtland Arion I am not that fond of this combo. I would prefer Orion Courtland or Remington Courtland nn Remy. (Sorry not keeping the C theme for first name going).
Also Charlton Leo, Charlton Maxwell, Charlton Xenon (sorry too 'n' heavy), Charlton Samuel.
