    Owenne Olivia Mercy

    what do you all think of this name?
    She would be called Owenne Olivia, possibly hyphenated to Owenne-Olivia so people don't just use Owenne, and maybe knock down Owenne to Owen to make it Owen-Olivia. What do you think? I think it is a great combo, but I've gotten mixed responses.

    Re: Owenne Olivia Mercy

    The name has a great flow and it's fun to see alliteration with the letter O which is rare. The spelling Owenne makes me want to put the stress on the last syllable, like o-WHEN which is not as lovely and probably not what you intended. The spelling Owen is just so masculine I wonder why you're using it for a girl. Owen Olivia is of course obviously female but I've heard from people with double names that the second name gets dropped a lot. Is Owen itself significant or do you just like the name? If you just like the name, how about:

    Odette Olivia Mercy
    Olwen Olivia Mercy
    Osanne Olivia Mercy
    Orly Olivia Mercy
    Opal Olivia Mercy

    The name Rowena is very signifcant to me but I couldn't find a way to pronounce it that I liked enough. So I want to go with Owen. I don't really think it is all that masculine, it is just masculine enough. Names like Madison and Shannon (which were first male names) look a whole lot more masculine to me than Owen. I think it's a great name for a girl, I just think it is too simple to use considering the other sib names I will probably eventually use. I know sometimes double names get dropped, which is why I would hyphenate it to maybe prevent that from happening. If people chose to call her Owen I would correct them. I don't think it would be too hard to keep Owen-Olivia if she was raised knowing her first name was Owen-Olivia. I know several Mary-Katherine's, and unless they decided to knock of the Katherine by their own choice I have never heard one of them called just Mary. Thanks for the suggestions. The only other O names I like enough to consider using as first names are Odessa and Olive, neither of which would work with my current O.O name.

    You wouldn't get the O.O. but you should also consider Rowen-Olivia rather than Owen or Owenne.
    Rowen is a more common unisex name while Owen is still considered quite masculine.

    I think Rowen-Olivia sounds lovely, though I love the name Rowena so I would just go with Rowena if I were you.

    Rowen is a beautiful name, the only problem is it is quite common. I've baby-sat for several and know of many more. I liked Rowena because it was simlar to Ravenna, a name I was going to use before I discovered Rowena. Ravenna-I loved how it looked but not how it sounded. The biggest problem with Rowena is that people pronounce it every which way- ro-ee-nuh, rowin-uh, and roh-enna are the 3 I always hear. I personally like the pronunciation rowe-nuh, which knocks it down to two syallables and is easier on the the tongue, I think, Any thoughts on that?
