Getting closer -- worried about flow with our last name
I think we are pretty much set on our short list -- I don't see us adding any additional names at this point. We've been through virtually every girl's name in existence, and these are the ones we feel we could actually use. Middle name will be Louisa or Louise or Lou, after my mother-in-law. In order of my favorites:
Lorelei Louise (so many L's! But hubby loves this name -- is this combo terrible? We could possibly do Lorelei Eloise)
Our last name starts with C and rhymes with book. I worry about the flow of some of these names with our last name (and, in my opinion, flow of first name and last name is far more important than first name and middle name). I also worry about Isadora (Is a door a book?) but I really like this name, and my son completely loves it. I also worry about Bridget, because someone on another thread said that it seems "dowdy" compared to our other three kids' names. But it was my great-great grandmother's name and one I have always loved.
What would be your top three favorites, considering our current sibset (Alexander, Madelyn, and Genevieve) and our last name. Thanks so much for your help!
