    Thoughts on Linnaea Greer?

    We're expecting our first baby-a little girl! We both love the name Linnaea Greer but are wondering if it's a little too much. We have a fairly basic last name so we feel like we can be a little more creative with the first and middle names. Thoughts??

    I think Linnaea Greer is a lovely name! The only thing that's a bit much, imho, is the spelling. I think Linnea might be easier. But, overall, the name does not feel like 'too much'; it's a great choice -- unexpected, even unique, but not weird or over-the-top. I really like the sound of it!
    currently considering...

    Lilia Magdalena | Rose Antonia | Clara Cordelia | Audrey Helena | Esther Mariella | Isabel Victoria
    Theodore Kit "Teddy" | Gilbert Henry | Edmund Jasper | Morgan Theodore | Daniel Archer | Henry Malachi

    crushing on... Wren Elisabeth & Jade Caroline

    Linnaea Greer is so brilliantly unexpected. I like it a lot.

    I do enjoy this spelling of Linnaea and though I'm not a great fan of Greer, I think it works wonderfully to ground this as a combo, balancing things out really well.

    Just a quick note to say,
    I'm always up for a chat, so feel free to say 'Hey'!

    It is lovely and I have to agree with the pp’s much preferring the Linnea spelling. Unique spellings only cause inconvenience for her when she has to always correct others, IMO.

    I think Linnaea Greer is lovely. Not sure about the Linnaea spelling - is this a regular spelling of the name?

    I really like Linnaea, though do prefer the simplified spelling Linnea. It's a beautiful, Scandi-chic name. Greer isn't really my style but I think the combination flows well.

    I agree that Linnea Greer looks better on paper, but as a combo I think it's fantastic. I love Linnea, it's great to see it getting some use!
