    Lightbulb Names for a very specific naming style...

    We are officially TTC #2, and are thinking about names. Well, actually, I never stopped thinking about names, but now it seems more real

    We have a pretty specific naming style, and hope that you brilliant Berries are up for the challenge.

    Our DD is Vivienne Grey.

    First Name:
    must be a feminine name
    vintage/quirky/french names a plus, but not required
    three syllables preferred, but two is okay
    the letter 'n' in the name is a plus, as all three of us have 'n's in the last syllable of our names
    prefer a unique ending (not 'a' or 'ie/y') but not required
    not crazy about "rhyming" names with Vivienne, i.e. Lillian, Evelyn, Lucienne, Marianne, etc.
    a short spunky nn (like Viv) is important to my husband, so its a plus, but not required

    Middle Name
    must be one syllable
    must be a 'word' name
    unisex or even masculine names preferred

    Some of our thoughts are:
    Fiona Drew
    Daphne June/Jude
    Bianca West

    Thank you!!!

    Ok....

    For first names maybe...

    -Marianne (This is actually my name, but it is the french version, has the "N" you're looking for. And is pretty vintage considering it hasn't been in the top 1000 since the 50s. )
    -Annette (French, has the double nn. Not popular. Vintage. nn could be Annie.)
    -Angeline (although next to Vivienne, it might be too close of an association with Angelina Jolie)
    -Clemence
    -Diane (It is the french variant.)
    -Genevieve (I actually think this would sound cute next to Vivienne)
    -Nanette
    -Yvonne (although I don't think there would be any nn's for that)

    As for middle names maybe...

    -Sky
    -Moon
    -Love
    -Joy
    -Wren
    Are virtue names ok...like Grace or Hope for example?

    @namelover77 West is one of our favorite middles! I like Adeline, but there are so many Addies, Adelines, Adeleides, and Addisons in Viv's playgroup :/ I like Anais a lot too, but my husband has deemed it "too French" whatever that means.

    @anton I hadn't considered Annette, I like it. I have Colette on my long list.

    You both mentioned Genevieve... that is one of my husbands favorites. But do you think its nicknames would be to close to Viv? I don't care for Gen/jenny, so it would probably be Evie. Are Viv & Eve/Evie too close?

    Thank you so much for your suggestions!
