    Questioning our name pick

    If our baby is a girl, we've been tossing around Vida or Kenzie and pretty much settled on Kenzie. But now I have some naming doubts and want to throw a new name in the game:

    Nemera

    It's hebrew, and after a fast google searched I learned that it means "leopard". What do you think of the name? I love it's uniqueness and that it has an animal meaning just like my son's name. I also think it sounds great with the surname (Wilde). But I would really love to hear some opinions on this name.

    Thank you!

    I like Vida out of the 3 choices. I have heard Nemera as a last name before. I really like your name

    Hmmm, I certainly prefer Vida and Kenzie. And out of those two, I like both for different reasons. Vida is fun but I still think it will grow with a little girl. Kenzie is very cute and fun but might not age as well. Nemera is pretty, but so unfamiliar. Where is the syllable emphasis? Ne-MERE-a or NEM-er-a?

    Which syllable is stressed? Is it:

    neh-MAIR-uh
    or
    NEM-uhr-uh?

    Regardless, I like Nemera, and my second favorite on your list is Vida. I can't get into Kenzie because of the trendy McKenzie/Mackenzie. I feel like she would be viewed as "just another Kenzie," while Nemera's or Vida's name would actually catch people's attention.

    I agree completely. Nemera is very interesting and sounds marvelous with Wilde, and Vida would be my second choice. I could not condone the use of Kenzie, über-trendy sawed-off surname that it is, with brother Drake Zephyr.

    My only concern with Nemera is that it's so unfamiliar that people might think you just made it up, which would be a shame.
