A little belated...
On June 17th my girls Scarlett Allison and Estelle Ophelia decided they had had enough of mamma's tummy and came early at 32 weeks. (It's been a rough couple weeks, but they are in blessedly good health.)
I had always wanted to name a girl Scarlett, but my husband was "eh" on it. He confessed he had always thought his first girl would be named Carly...which I kinda hated. Then some research turned up that Carly is a nn for Scarlett, and we figured it was meant to be.
Then we found out we were having two... It took months to decide on Estelle's name.
It was important to both of us that the girl's names were very individual, but I wanted something more somber to balance Scarlett. Eventually Estelle seemed perfect...elegant and classy, with a beautiful meaning and lovely nn options.
The DH chose Allison for Scarlett's mn. I have no idea where he got it from. One day he came to me with stars in his eyes and asked "What about Allison, doesn't that sound perfect?" and that was it.
And after much waffling, I went with my favorite "guilty pleasure" name, Ophelia, for Estelle. I love the way the names sound together, and I've always loved the big, romantic, slightly tragic names. If she grows up to hate it, at least she won't have to ever use it. But it's my secret hope that as she grows up it will make her feel a little exotic and special.
Only time will tell, I guess.
