Thread: Mandolin Maeve
August 16th, 2013 02:00 AM #11
My mother wanted to name my sister Mandolin (middle name Marie) if I'd ever become a big sister. While I don't adore the name, I do think it's a nice one, and I wouldn't let people try to sway you off it. If you are already at the stage where baby is coming soon, I am sure you and your partner put a lot of thought into wanting to use that particular name as well as the con's of using it. And you decided it was the one! End of story.
Maeve and Eve are both lovely. I slightly prefer Mandolin Eve as a combo as I think it sounds more lyrical, and two M's together with Mandolin Maeve is more on the cute side.moving to new account with username I like more... since we can't just change them

If Mandolin is special to you, then stick to your guns. There is nothing bad about it. It's a word name for a musical instrument, and that's not a terrible thing! It's easy to pronounce, easy to spell, and has no negative connotations. I think Mandolin Maeve is lovely because alliteration is poetic, but Mandolin Eve might flow off the tongue slightly better.

Thank you everyone. I was in the orchestra and my husband is very musical as well. My terminally ill mother had planned to name me Mandolin before I was 2 weeks late and born on Christmas eve. I'm Holly btw. My daughter is due on the eve of my mother's birthday. I thought it an appropriate name. My husband is Irish, hence Maeve. We both enjoy poetry and the alliteration of MM.
