    Could this be it?? What do you think?

    Many of you have been helping me decide on a girl's name for our fraternal twins that are arriving in about a month...hopefully! To recap, the boy is Otto Warren after my FIL and my dad, and I have been trying to decide on a girls name that represents my mother and MIL middle names, Marie and Jeanne. What do you think about this?

    Ella Marjeanne (Mar-jean). It combines grandmothers Marie, Jeanne, and great grandmothers Marjorie and Marilyn. It is a bit made up, but is meaningful.

    My other option is Ellajeanne Marie....nice, but a long first name?

    What do you think?

    My favourite out of the two is Ella Marjeanne even though I'm not keen on smoosh names I feel this one is fine because it's meaningful and middle names should be meaningful.

    Are we set on Ella?

    I think it's a little too matchy with Otto. I remember you had Adela on the list, which I adore paired with your boy, and think is infinitely preferable to Ella. You could even call her "Ella" as a nickname for Adela, but I don't think that's the best choice on its own. Can you give a list of all possible first names still in the running?

    I don't think I can get on board with Marjeanne. It doesn't have a very appealing sound, and it does immediately seem made-up. Same with Ellajeanne. I personally think you should stop trying to please everyone by honoring the whole family with a name. It's very sweet of you to try, but it's unnecessary.
    It's a GIRL!! First babe, due 4/17.

    I'm also not a huge fan of the smoosh, sorry. Have you considered Marianne?
