Thread: Laine Lee?
November 12th, 2013 09:10 PM #1
I have recently fallen in love with the name Laine (spelling subject to change) for a girl. And my husband likes it also, a major score!!
However, I want to use my maiden name Lee as a middle name. Our first option for a boys name is already set, so the only way to put Lee in would be for a girls name....
But the problem is; Laine Lee? Too alliterative, too short, too insubstantial??
I don't want to not use a first name I love because of my maiden name, which I obviously can't change....
What are your thoughts?
Also, bonus question, which spelling of Laine do you prefer?

I like Lane best. I would go simplest so not to seem like I'm stretching for a unique spelling. I would opt for Elaine or Elena and use Lane as a cute nickname. I think Elaine Lee or Elena Lee feel more sophisticated, adult, professional. beautiful. Lane Lee is pretty, but cutesy. I do think Lane could suit a grown woman, but the alliteration makes it even cutesier.

My fn is Lane, I like the idea of the simplest spelling. My personal opinion is that I need more syllables to follow a 1 syllable first name. Alliteration is nice, but two one syllable names with the same letter is a bit brief for me.Mother to Vesper and Ondine
