    Question Funky, different but not WAY OUT THERE girls names???

    I am having so many issues finding more girls names.....

    With my first son I wanted him to be Atticus or Cyrus.. BOTH were rejected! We ended up settling on Josef because it honored multiple family members and is not common AT ALL where we live!!Although if it were up to me he would have been Atticus!

    Anyway.... Now I am trying to find a bit of a different name that still sounds ok with Josef...

    We DONT want a common traditional name or anything WAY OUT there!

    A couple that I feel fit MY protocol are:

    Valen
    Ramona
    Adair


    To me these names are unique, fairly easily pronounceable but not soooo out of this world that people will think that they are made up...


    Any suggestions????????
    boys names drive me crazy!

    Ramona is wonderful. It sounds great with Josef!
    Adair is a very pretty name. Josef (well, Joseph) is a common enough name in history and Adair can be a surname, and I wonder if a person named Joseph Adair ever existed. Also, Josef is so classically masculine, whereas Adair is more neutral, to me that's tricky, but it still works. I would prefer Adara.
    Valen I like less. I'm not sure how to pronounce it. Is it Vaylen, like Kaylynn etc, or Val-en, with a first syllable like Valerie? And I would honestly assume it was a boys' name (Adair I don't assume / assume girl). And it seems like a name chopped off - like, it should have been Valencia or Valentina or Valeria, but something happened.


    My suggestions to you are
    Adara
    Annica
    Annora
    Anona
    Aurelia
    Aurora
    Honora
    Iris
    Valencia
    Valeria
    Valentina
    Vera
    Verena

    I LOVE Ramona and its great with Josef! Since your favorites for boys both ended in s, you might like Carys, Maris, or Avis for a girl. Those all have very nice meanings. I really like Carys and Josef. Here are a few other nice distinctive, but not weird choices that I think would be lovely with Josef:

    Louisa
    Elspeth
    Miriam
    Helena
    Agatha
    Franca
    Mara
    Noora
    Mom to Rusha, Tarek, and Naseem
