Thread: Baby girl name

  1. #11
    Elara is beautiful and exotic without being too inaccessible. My favorite for sure.

    Shily sounds nice as shy-lee, but I’d bet people will pronounce it shill-lee (rhyming with Lily) if they don’t know.

    Thank you so much ladies! That was a great help! I guess the winner is Elara and least favourite is Shily. I like both Rumi and Elara equally and DH prefers Elara. We had agreed that I’d choose our first born’s name and it wasn’t easy. Your comments definitely helped me in my decision and I think we’ll go with Elara and maybe think about Rumi as her middle name. :-)

    I honestly don’t know what I think of Shily , it sounds pretty though
    Thanks! Yes Elara is pretty unique which makes me like it more.

    Thanks! I agree Shily might be mis-pronounced.

    Elara Rumi is absolutely amazing! Both names have great meaning, and sound bright and fresh. I love that idea.

    Elara is very pretty, and it falls within the current mania for 'a' ending names (Isabella, Sophia, Olivia, Ella, yadda yadda). I would consider that a strike against it, but that's just me (I prefer less less elongated final letters).

    Do you have any guidelines for a middle name? It's challenging to come up with one when the rules for the first are very specific but no rules for the middle. If you really have no requirements the sky's the limit. Is there any family you want to honor via a middle name? Do you want a short one, a long one, one the contrasts with Rumi, or has the same length/sound?
    Yeah I didn’t know about Beyonce’s daughter having the same name untill Recently. Its still pretty unique.
    For middle name we would prefer something that contrasts with the first name. We dont like very common middle names like rose. We were thinking if we choose Rumi, we can go with Anahita or Parisa. For Elara we dont have a middle name yet but would like to choose one that would have a meaning of strength or intelligence since her first name is only focusing on beauty. :-)
