Hazel or Clementine- Sister to Bay
Hi, everyone! I'm not pregnant yet but I'm trying to decide between my two current top names. Hazel is a family name that I love and think is totally usable and Clementine is a name I have always loved but that is a little more daring.
We live in Oklahoma and I think our area is pretty good about unusual names, though I would still expect some stares with Clementine. I also wonder if she would be taken seriously with such a whimsical name but I'm not sure either of those is reason enough not to use it.
We have a daughter whose nickname is Bay. Her full name is Bayard, which peaked in the late 1800s and Hazel and Clementine were popular then, which is important to me. Oh and our last name is very close to Sanders.
I guess that's my long way of asking: Which would you choose for a sister to Bay?
Thanks so much, this forum is awesome!Mom to 2 girls ♥ Bayard McConnell "Bay" & Marguerite Davis "Maple"

Hazel and Bay would be lovely! Whilst in general I prefer Clementine, I think it's a little too lengthy and musical next to sturdy little Bay/Bayard. Clementine and Bay ARE cute together, but I think Bay might feel a tad jealous of her sister's gorgeous and feminine name (not that Bay isn't just as brilliant - it is, in a different way). Where you planning on using a nickname for Clementine? Cleo and Bay I could see working.much love and i are waiting for you;

Bay, though. Hazel is my top name because it's more useable, I just can't decide because Clementine is gorgeous, too.Mom to 2 girls ♥ Bayard McConnell "Bay" & Marguerite Davis "Maple"
