    Baby #6 Name Help

    Hello all! My wife and I are expecting baby number 6 following two brothers and three sisters:

    Aria Elise
    Thomas "Gideon"
    Cecilia Marie "Sicily"
    Vincenzo Jude "Vinny"
    Aveline Rose "Lina"

    Our first three are biological; Vinny we adopted domestically and Lina we adopted SN from China. This new baby we are adopting from China as well, and she has Down Syndrome. Aveline has Downs as well and her name, "Lina" is a common enough name that it does not draw any unwarranted attention to her, any more than her obvious differences do, which is our thinking for this new baby as well.

    We are having an extremely difficult time finding girl names we both love! I really love Hazel as a first name, and my wife prefers more generic (common) first names that I don't love. I like classic names, but we clearly like taking classic or longer, "fancier" as my wife calls them, names and shorten them. We love nick names!

    We are open to all suggestions based on the names of our children any of you may have. Just a note -- we are considering a first name (we would use the middle name as their "name" in that case) or middle name "Della" or "Gertrude" as those names are my grandmother's and her great-grandmother's respectively. Names that go well with either of these names would be appreciated.

    Thanks so much!

    Hmm what do you think of Miranda? It feels more common which suits your wife's liking but also kind of fancy/frilly too. It's found in Shakespeare's works and means "wonderful; to be admired". Miri, Mira, Randi, Andi all make nice nicknames (Miri and Mira are fantastic!) Miranda Hazel and Miranda Gertrude work well. Also, perhaps a combo like Miranda Eleanor could get you to the nickname Della. It's a bit of a stretch but could still work. Good luck with your search!
