    Opinions on...

    Lisla? (pron. LIE-lah)

    I'm in love with the name Isla, however I have a person on my FB friends list (related briefly through marriage) who named their daughter Isla Betty - so I'd feel like I was stepping on toes by naming baby #3 Isla. Lila would be the original alternative to it...but with a daughter already named Chessa (Chesna + Jessa), I feel like Lisla would fit well.

    Too far out into left field?

    If you're in the US, I don't think it would be pronounced the way you want. I'd go with Lilah/ Lila, which are very pretty.

    I think you would get a lot of "Lisa?" and "Lees-luh?"

    I think the s makes the pronunciation a little hard since I think at least in America most people just got comfortable saying Isla correctly but it isn't intuitive for Lisla ( at least not for me). Why don't you think Lila and Chessa go?

    I'd go with Lilah instead of Lisla - everyone would call her Lees-la instead, I think.

    It's not that I don't think that they wouldn't go, especially since Lisla would be pronounced the same as Lila. I guess I'm just looking for something a little more unique (you don't see a lot of 'Chessa's around, especially in my area.)

    The rest of my list so far consists of:

    Isla
    Enna
    Maura
    Annora
    Cara
    Ruby
    Lila
    Carys
    Vivienne

    And we've already got a Chessa, and a Liam.
