    Re: Another Name Has Been Proposed - Dessa vs. Elsa

    I voted for Elsa, because Dessa, while pretty, feels like a nickname for Odessa to me.

    I also worry that Dessa will be mistaken for the more popular Tessa. (When I say it out loud, Dessa kind of sounds like someone with a cold saying "Tessa." That may just be me, though!)

    Good luck! :-)

    Re: Another Name Has Been Proposed - Dessa vs. Elsa

    To add to the above, I'm really sorry about your baby and your father passing away.

    Have you thought about using E.D. or D.E. initials to honor them? What about Pearl, which contains the name "Earl?" (I see that your son already has the name David as his middle name, so if your baby girl has "Earl" in her name, both of his names will be honored.)

    Daphne Pearl (for David Pearl)
    Dahlia Pearl
    Esme Delphine (for Eliana and David...Esme means "beloved.")
    Ellery Dessa (along the lines of Finleigh's modern style)
    Ellery Pearl
    Elsa Pearl
    Eliza Pearl
    Eleanora Pearl
    Daphne Scarlett (for David Smith)
    Daphne Estelle (take the D from Daphne and the Es from Estelle, and call her Des or Dessie as a nickname)

    Good luck! :-)

    My greatgrandmother was Pearl. So my first cousin is Natalie Pearl. I don't really want to use the same middle name. I'm pretty set on Julia as the middle name. It doesn't work great with any name that ends in a.
