    Re: Marc + Angela = Marcella?

    Christanie, haha. That is dreadful. One of my teachers at school was called Ronlyn after (you guessed it) Ron and Lynn.

    Lucky not everyone does it, because I'd be called Fresley.

    What do you think of combining mom and dad's names into a name?
    Marc + Angela = Marcella


    We recently had a fabulous trip to Italy and I fell in love with that country, so we would use the Italian pronunciation of Marcella, with a ch sound instead of a soft C.

    Nn could be Cella(pronounced chella).

    What do you think?
    I love it! I'm not generally in favor of smooshing names together but in this case, since it is a legitimate name, and you have a lovely family story to go with it, it's fantastic. Chella is a darling nn too.
    Names I admire but can't necessarily use myself: Adela, Berthe, Beryl, Calliope, Celeste, Cleo, Grete, Guinevere, Isadora, Lilac, Lisette, Lucienne, Maelle, Marilla, Marisol, Melina, Ottoline, Pascale, Sibyl, Zara, Zinnia. Boys: Alasdair, Alcott, Anders, Augustine, Barnaby, Evander, Felix, Gilbert, Graham, Hugo, Julian, Kyrill, Leif, Lev, Malcolm, Maxfield, Morgan, Montgomery, Orion, Orlando, Rhys, Roman.

    I'd love to be able to do the same with my husbands name and my own but Dali I don't like and Lida would be a no go form DH.
    Marcella - I like it but don't love it, that's just my personal taste. Lately I've been thinking about Marla which when I look at it is also Marc and Angela meshed together. I'd use the nn Marlie/Marley.

    Cella - nice nn. One of the favorite candies in my house is Cella's chocolate covered cherries. As a name it feels very decadent and sweet.

    Marcella is beautiful - esp with "ch" sound. I love it.

    I think I would combine the names into an anagram:

    Marc + Angela = "Carma Angel"
