Thread: Which goes best with last name

Oops, voted for Violet, then re-read your post and saw your last name starts with V. I thought it was Hickory. I'm sick and reading comprehension is apparently very bad with this cold. So unless you like name alliteration, which I do but some don't, I'd go with something else.
I like Elena with your last name, and Catherine is very pretty with Elena, but isn't that the name of the main girl from TV show The Vampire Diaries? Elena, and her twin is named Catherine? Probably not an issue, but it's what I thought of when I saw it. I think Catherine Elaine V. sounds nice.

I voted for Elena Catherine (because it's amazing! And Elena Vick0ry is pretty cool) and Emilia (both Elaine and another MN option, because Emilia Elaine has a lot of similar sounds, and could be tongue-twistery, but I love that it's honoring). While I love Violet and want to vote for it for you, Violet Vick0ry is a lot of "V". I prefer Emilia of the two, personally, but Elena Catherine is so charmingly beautiful.Lise

I love love love the name Elena and think it sounds fine with your last name so that's what I voted for. That being said, your Elena Catherine combo is soooo heavily tied to The Vampire Diaries for me (two characters played by the same actress who are named Elena-the main character, and Katherine- the 'bag girl' vampire). Obviously both names have many many other associations besides this show, but it's just that when they are put together it is a little hard to overlook by anyone who has seen/read/heard of it. Just so you are aware, and can decide how much that reference might bother you if you get asked more than once if that was the reason you chose the names. Elena really is a great name, but are there any other middles you are considering? =]
