Willamina - witty & warm-hearted or wrinkly & weird?
I just came across the name Willamina on nameberry. I had not heard it before and really like the way that name sounds and feels when spoken. It comes with cute nickname options: Willa, Willow, Billie, Mina, Minnie and even Mila. But is it too weird? Does it just look like a dyslexic Wilhelmina?
My number one girl name at the moment is Leonore. I like the combo Leonore & Willamina. But what do you think? Does that work? Do you prefer one of my other sets:
Leonore & Eliza
Leonore & Camilla
Leonore & Amabel
Do you have other suggestions?

Wilhelmina, Willamina, Wilhelmine & Willemine
German spelling certainly looks a lot better. But will people pronounce it Will-hell-meena all the time? That sounds so clunky to me. I prefer the flow of Willa-meena...
Also, how would you pronounce Wilhelmine? Ending on -een, -eenie or -eenuh?
The dutch apparently have Willemine as a female form or Willem. Would you prefer that to Willamina orxcore it similar? How would you pronounce it?
All opinions are very welcome. Thanks!Ronja ♥ Julius ♥ Leonore ♥ Frederick ♥ Harriet ♥ Clemens ♥ Elisabeth ♥ Ivor ♥ Linnea ♥ Elliot
