    Luna Sylvie

    I am 28 weeks pregnant with our girl, who we are decidedly naming Luna. We are not open to a new first name.

    Sylvie has sentimental value for us both, and we love it...but I do not know that I love it in the middle spot here.

    The other candidate is Luna Camille, which has much more flow and charm I think, but this name has no sentimental ties to it. It is just pretty, and we have decided we might like to save Camille for a second daughter, should we be lucky enough to have one.

    What do you think of the name Luna Sylvie?
    Her last name begins with R and is three syllables long.

    Thanks for your input.
    married to my prom date and best friend. anxiously awaiting our first baby, a girl called Luna, due in late October.

    I think meaning trumps everything and it's not bad at all. Luna Sylvie is a fine name. If you were going for flow alone, I'd choose a 1-syllable or 3-syllable, and ideally something starting with a hard consonant after the a-ending. BUT I think the meaning wins.

    Unless you're open to adding a second name? Luna Catherine Sylvie, for example. Definitely save Camille.
    Love love talking names... my 'style' is more classic but I do love some surprising choices too...

    I think Luna Sylvie and Luna Camille are both beautiful! Since Sylvie holds sentimental value for you, I would say to pick Luna Sylvie and save Camille, as you mentioned. I honestly think they are equal in flow and charm.
