Thread: Arrietty Maple?

  1. #1

    Arrietty Maple?

    We have started afresh with our girl list for bub due in August. Unusually my husband and I have agreed on two new names, and also on combining them.. This means the full name would be:

    Arrietty Maple Forman

    I really love it, and I am really interested what you guys think of this, especially those also in Australia
    We love the nn Etty/Etta/Ettymay... Boys name is sorted: Peregrine Morrissey Forman.

    She would be joining our daughter Iris Ophelia and Orrin Chace (half brother) and would be our last child.

    Thanks in advance!
    Long time name lover...

    DD - Iris Ophelia (2011)
    D? - due August... Peregrine Lyons or Aurelia ?????

    Maple: I think Maple in the middle spot is darling. A while ago I had an obsession with this name as a middle.
    Arrietty: I've never heard of this name. I'm really curious how did you hear it? What does it mean? And more importantly how do you pronounce it? My guess is Air-ritty

    Arrietty is 'arry-etty' and it's a name from the book 'The Borrowers' by Mary Norton (she probably created it out of the name Harriet as there are similarly altered names for other characters too e.g Homily/Emily). I've always loved the sound of it. But I think I prefer Arietta.

    Arrietty Maple is adorable though. Go for it.

    It looks silly and a little too contrived for me. Arietta isn't quite so bad.
