    opinions please...

    I am not pregnant YET, but hope to be by February or March. Anyway, we have come up with a name for a boy and a name for a girl. I would love to know what you think about them and also suggestions of other names....I would like to have a few options on hand just in case one seems to "fit" more than another. Either or both gender names welcome.

    Boy: Milo Huckleberry
    Girl: Stella Rhiani (Ree-AHnee)

    I'm not sure what our style is, but super traditional names don't interest us much (John, Ann, etc.)
    Our last name is two syllables, begins with a P and ends with an S.
    Thank you all!

    I love both Milo and Stella-- I think they also work great together as a sibling set! I'm not as much of a fan of their middle names though.

    Here're the problems I foresee:

    Rhiani is pretty, and its rhythm flows beautifully with Stella, but it sounds a bit made up and will likely have some pronunciation issues. Additionally if you say Stella Rhiani out loud enough it ends up sounding like Stellery (rhymes with celery) Ani. I don't think these are breaking points, just something to think about!

    Huckleberry is most definitely going to get people talking, and most people probably won't like it. As long as you don't care what people think then all the more power to you! If you are going to do something "out there", the middle spot is the place to do it! May I ask why you chose this name?

    (By the by, I had a friend in HS whose name was Samuel Huckleberry and he went by Huck. He was a very cool guy and I always liked the name Huck by itself.)

    Good luck making that baby! :D

    Stellary Ani is hilarious! I was originally thinking Rhian for the middle name, but a have a very dear friend whose name is Ahnnie (AW-nee) and I want to honor her. However, Stella Ahnnie doesn't flow well for me. So, Rhiani IS made up...I may have to continue brainstorming ways to include my friends name.
    As for Huckleberry, it was my husband's idea, which is interesting because he is such a city person. I think it's charming though, and I could foresee a boy using Huck. I like the Huck Finn association and I think it's a strong option that goes well with Milo in a quirky way.
    Thanks for the opinions and well wishes!
