Opinions on Cordelia, etc.
Well, I'm due in just over 3 weeks (yikes!!!) and we thought we had this name thing figured out. Now we're both having second thoughts.
Here is (was??) our girl choice: Cordelia Blythe (and yes I know the Anne of Green Gables references and am MORE than ok with it.. I'm a redhead and grew up in Anne-land).
Now we are having second thoughts. I feel that maybe it doesn't have enough quirky "punch" to it. Our boy choice (we don't know the gender) is Canaan Maverick, and I feel like that has a lot more uniqueness to it. I kind of want a name that people say "oh that's really cool/lovely/etc..." and maybe even "I've never heard of anyone named that before"... without it being freakishly weird or "out there". Is that too much to ask??
Also - our two older kids have names meaning "laughter, little fire" and "joyful one, God with us", so meaning is important... and the joy/laugh/etc theme would be cool, but not necessary.
Here are some others we're tossing around:
Blythe Adelaide (no NN)
Cordelia Evangeline (with the NN "Cora" or "Delia")
Beatrice Evangeline (with the NN "Bea", two syllables)
What do you think of these? Any other fresh suggestions? We like quirky and weird, but not "too weird" if you know what I mean. Meaning is important.
I know that if anyone can help, it'll be you all!
