Baby #4 is...

A GIRL! We've been blessed to be expecting our 4th girl!

Originally we were going to wait and be surprised but the excitement got the best of us. We are thrilled!

Here is my last post before we knew gender. http://www.babynamewizard.com/forum/here-comes-4

Some names we are liking:

Felicity

Lilah/Lyla/Lila

Rowan

Reagan

For a middle name we are loving either June or Louisa.

Felicity June D0dge

Lilah June D0dge

Those are two of my favorite combinations. I'm not 100% sold on Felicity as it seems so frilly to me.

Any suggestions? We like longish names and preferably want to avoid repeat initials with our other three daughters(A,b,c) and names starting or ending in D as it doesn't sound great with Dodge.

Hello Alllison! Congratulations on your 4th girl! It will be amazing and you will have so much fun with 4 of them! I was waiting for an update! 

I went on your last post, and since you don't want D names, and you don't want to repeat other girls initialis, I really think it would ne so nice to have another B girl, as you said "Brooklyn would have a B sibling" since you have Allison and Anneliese, Cory and Coralie and now Brooklyn and ? 

So, if you want another B name and I really think it would be nice, just don't worry that 2 of your girls would have same first initial, and 2 don't, here are some beautiful B girl names

Blakely,

Brianne,

Briana,

Bailey,

Beatrice,

Baelynn,

Bellerose, 

Beverly

And for those 2 combinations that you have, I like both of them, but I prefer name Lilah. 

Hope I helped! Congrats again!

Thanks for the suggestions! If we end up falling in love with a B name, we will definitely use one.

I forgot to add Brielle, I love this name, it would be so cute for a girl. Brielle or Blakely would go well with Brooklyn :)

Brielle is pretty. My closest friend is named Brie and her daughter is named Ellis. It would be too close for me to name my kiddo that. Thanks anyway!

I agree that Felicity goes well with D0dge. I like the nickname Lissie too! 

We've added Bridget to our list. I like the combo Bridget Louisa too. I'm not sure how much I like Bridget D0dge though. Is that too much "dg" sound?

Bridget is a lovely name! I think Bridget Louise would flow better than Louisa :)

Although it has "dg" sounds in both name and surname, I think this is great combination and for me it would not be a huge if I hear someone's name is Bridget DOdge :)

Congrats on girl #4! I'm glad there is no "Baker" coming your way ;)

 

I really like Felicity and Lila (that is the spelling I revert to when I hear the name). I feel like Rowan and Reagan are a bit of a different style from your first two names and from the middle names- they are a bit trendier and more modern IMO. I also really hear Rowan as a masculine name because I know several little boys with the name. 

I like Lila June personally. I think it has some snap and is also very timeless. I feel like you should be 100% sold on any name you choose, so if you don't feel that Felicity is the one, don't use it!

From your daughters' names and from your list, a name that jumped out to me that may be a good fit for you is Julianne/Julianna. Also: Nicolette, Mirabelle, Emmeline, Daphne.

Updating my list of possible contenders...

Felicity June- still the front runner

Louisa June- I like this because Louisa honors grandma Lois however i worry it sounds to similar to our 2nd child Anneliese. She frequently goes by Annie but her name is one that I love to use the full name.

I'm also still bouncing around with these names; Adelaide, Naomi, Emeline, and Lila.

I like the nickname potential of Adelaide and Emeline. Naomi seems like a very sweet under used name. Emeline is in my husband's family tree and I like that aspect but it feels a little lengthy. It doesn't seem to roll off the tongue (Emeline June D0dge.) I think Adelaide is gorgeous. I'm wondering if I pronounce it correctly. I soften the d at the end.

Let me know your thoughts! Thanks!

Felicity is nice, but not my style because I agree with your earlier comment about it being frilly. But I would be delighted to meet one, which I never have.

Louisa is an long-time favorite of mine. And aside from my bias, I don't think Louisa sounds at all close to Anneliese. Actually, I think Adelaide sounds a bit too similar.

Louisa also has the potential Isa nn (Lisa without the L) if that is something that pleases you or her. I know one who's full name is Isabeau.

I have the same feeling about Emeline that I do about Felicity - I like Felicity slightly better.

Thumbs up for Naomi and Lila!

Just my two cents. Any of these names are winners, of course.

I wouldnt use Adelaide and Annalise - I'd avoid the same letter,  plus Annie and Addie sound too close

Felicity is lovely

Louisa doesnt sound too close to Annelise

Emeline is ok,  could have spelling and pronounciation issues - Emmy and Annie not sure it too close, but sound cute, what about Emily

Naomi is lovely

sorry I dont likve Lila,  Lillian is nice though

Eloise woud be nice too  - and could honour grandma Lois

If we chose Adelaide we'd have to avoid the nickname Addie as we have a niece Addalyn who goes by Addie. And we've got a niece Emily already too.

Funny I like Lila(although it's low on the list) but I detest lillian/lily. I feel like we live in a pocket of lilys.

Eloise is pretty and I really like it but it's too close sounding for me to Anneliese.

I love Felicity, I actually don't find it overly frilly at all although I'm not sure I can articulate why not; I can understand why it would feel frilly to people but to me it feels more spunky and adventurous (especially with the nickname Liccy which, full disclosure, I heard as a nickname when I was 15 and have been in love with ever since). Certainly I'd say it's no more frilly than Anneliese. The full name first+last/first+middle+last would have a great sound too imo.

Louisa is a pretty name and not too close to Annaliese for my ear, plus you seem to be fond of nicknames so that would distance them even further. If you're talking nickname potential I think Louisa has so many options; Lou, Lulu, Lala (which I'm saying with a very short 'a'-think the start of the word lamp or the la in à la-not like lala land), Loula, Isa, Isa-June and LJ are just my immediate thoughts.

For me Anneliese and Adelaide are not over the 'too similar to use on siblings' line, especially in a group of four rather than just the two of them, but Annie and Addie really are so I'd probably skip that one given your propensity for nicknames. Unless you have a different nickname in mind for Adelaide that you could push hard with everyone while she's little.

Emeline I find very sweet on it's own but agree with you that there is something a little clunky about it combined with your last name (not a deal breaker if you love it but it sounds like it's really not at the top of your list anyway), and I'm not sure about it as a sibling to Coralie; for some reason I get tongue twisted trying to say them in sequence (again not a deal breaker or possibly even an issue for you at all). 

Naomi is a lovey name, it's actually one of my sister's middles and she gets very positive feedback on it whenever someone finds it out. Lila is sweet but I think you would have to be willing to deal, and teach your daughter to deal, with frequent spelling/pronunciation corrections. I feel like Naomi and Lila match Brooklyn more in style and Emeline and Adelaide match Anneliese and Coralie more. My favourite of your list are the top two-Felicity or Louisa-because they bridge the two styles really well, but otherwise I'd definitely go with the Naomi/Lila side to balance out the sibling set.

I really appreciated your comment!

I think the nickname Liccy is sweet. My husbands wants to nickname her Felix which I think is kinda cute and endearing. Our Anneliese is so full of spunk and joy so it doesn't come off as frilly too me. I agree that Felicity D0dge rolls off the tongue well.

I just wanted to chime in and say I think Felicity June is so, so lovely. Felicity also doesn’t strike me as frilly. The way the f, s and ee sounds pair together sounds crisp to my ears. And don’t overlook the nickname Flicka. It might not be to everyone’s taste, but I think it’s adorable.

17
February 18, 2018 9:23 AM

Crisp is a perfect way to describe how Felicity feels to me, thank you! Not sold on Flicka as a nn, I prefer just Flick (although maybe that was a typo?) It would also maybe be sweet to play off the meaning and have either Happy or Lucky as a family nickname.

18
February 18, 2018 8:02 PM

Flicka is a little too horse for me. If she gets a nickname it will be either Liccy, Felix or Junebug. 

It does seem crisp, doesn't it? It reminds me of my oldest named Brooklyn Ruby and the "pop" it has to it.

I really feel like Felicity is the name for you. Like the idea of Felix as a nn too, nothing wrong with you and her dad having different nicknames for her, Junebug is also very sweet
