I am due soon, and I have baby name fatigue! I have an international family, so I like names that can be pronounced in several languages easily. Here is my name list:
Violetta - family name. everyone pronounces this differently. i say it the italian way, vyo-letta, as in adding "etta" to viola. i think vee-o-letta is nice too, although choppier. but when i say it, people come back with "oh, i love vie-o-letta!" which is not the name. will this end up being annoying for her?
Tallulah - i've adored this name for many years, and would call her Lula. but where i live (brooklyn), i feel like this is trendy & worry that in the future, she will a flash in the pan sounding name. granted, i plan on moving, but don't want her name to end up sounding dated. thoughts?
Capucine - a french flower name (capu-seen). when i say this, no one has an preconceptions. but no one says it's beautiful either... seems that it's just foreign sounding. no one thinks "capuccino" when i say it, only when it's read.
Priscilla - i think this is such a pretty name, but it gets such a love/hate reaction. very opposite, people are either thinking oh, it's like a beautiful princess, or they think it is harsh and ugly sounding.
Penelope - a lot of people really like this, and i added it b/c when i went to buy truffles, i was so taken with the "penelope" that i bought despite the flavor. *ha*ha*
Helena - (heh-lay-na) everyone is very "meh" on this one, but i kind of like it! is it boring?
Camille - a name i thought was pretty, but it comes off as just ok. not so crazy about it anymore.
this will probably be my only child, so i would love for her to have a name that makes people smile and say, oh, what a beautiful name. i really wanted to name her after a flower, but flower names seem to be either really popular (lily) or too out there (tulip).
the last name is Eim
open to suggestions as well, please!!

I love love love, Penelope, Helena, Tallulah and Camille - in that order! I adore the nn Lula too.
Flower names that are neither too popular, or out there, that you may like:
Zahara (means flower)
Camellia (similar to Camille!)
Hope that helps! Best of luck27 year old name addict, dreaming of a future:
