    Looking for a first name - open to suggestions!

    This could be easy, or it could be hard. I'm looking for a first name for a girl - we are open to any style right now, but seem to like the simple/classic old-now-new names if that makes sense. The middle name is one syllable - Anne (family name), as is the last name (starts with N, and is softer sounding), so I'm looking for something 2 syllables or more so it isn't too choppy/robotic sounding. We seem to be stuck on "ie" or "ee" sounding names right now - like Sadie, Lucy, Molly, Chloe, etc. so some different suggestions would be nice. Thanks! I look forward to hearing all your ideas!

    Re: Looking for a first name - open to suggestions!

    My apologies for repeats! :-)

    Annabelle (in case you wanted to honor Anne with a first name)
    Anneliese/Annelise (ditto)
    Beatrice (the ss sound attaches to the N in your last name when I say it out loud, though, which may or may not bother you.)
    Cecily
    Eleanor (N heavy with your last name, though...)
    Eloise (although the z sound attaches to Anne when I say it out loud...Anne is tricky in the middle!)
    Felicity (has the ee ending sound you like, although I don't think it's the best with Anne)
    Genevieve (not the best with Anne, though...nn Evie)
    Margaret (nn Maisie, which reminds me of Sadie)
    Mirabelle/Mirabel
    Natalie (only if you're an alliteration fan, of course!) :-)
    Rosalie (an ie ending)
    Rosabel/Rosabelle
    Penelope (nn Poppy or Lola...I'd suggest Nell, but with a short N last name, I think it would sound blunt) I love Penelope Anne! :-)
    Violet

    I think that longer names sound great with a short middle and last name, but here are some shorter names like Sadie:

    Phoebe
    Ruby
    Sally

    (I think the longer names create a softer flow, though...)

    I personally avoid pairing first names ending in A with middles beginning with A because of the pause in the flow, but this may not be an issue for you. If not, you may like:

    Amelia
    Cordelia
    Celia
    Cecilia
    Eliza
    Louisa
    Lydia
    Matilda (although her initials would be MAN)


    (I think they all sound great with your last name, but less so with Anne.)

    I never realized how many names end with an N sound!

    Best wishes to you! :-)

    The first names that struck me were Courtney and Whitney, but I don't think they fit the whole classic theme.

    Mackenzie
    Roslyn/Rosalind
    Valerie
    Mallory
    Rosemary (personal favorite)
    Carrie
    Corey
    Natalie/Natalia
    Christabel/Christabella
    Hailey
    Lindsey
    Melody
    Melanie
    Sydney
    Christine
    Danielle
