Baby sister for Annabelle
We are expecting baby girl number 2 this summer, and I would love some help with the name. Our daughter is Annabelle, and our last name is a very common one syllable name. We are using my maiden name for all the middles. To give you a sense of our naming styles, I’ve put my and my husband’s initial not-so-short lists below. We can agree that we want a not hyper-common but not super-out-there name that goes well with Annabelle (but is not matchy-matchy) and one that feels somewhat traditional/old fashion. But we tend not to see eye to eye on the particulars. I particularly really dislike a lot of the French names he seems to gravitate towards. I’d love to hear people’s advice about their favorites among the two lists, as well as names we are not thinking of yet that might be a good fit with both of our styles.
(Annabelle, who is two, thinks we should name the baby “goat cheese” or “soap”, but I think she’ll be outnumbered)
Abigail, Amelia, Carolina, Cecilia, Clara, Eleanor, Eliza, Eloise, Elsa, Eva, Evelyn, Leora, Louisa, Lucia, Lucy, Naomi, Rosa, Ruby, Talia, Violet
My husband’s list
Camille, Coraline, Corinna, Dalia, Daria, Delia, Elaine, Gabriella, Jacqueline, Jeanette, Josephine, Leila, Martina, Maxine, Rose, Rosemary, Sabrina, Sienna, Simone, Sonia, Stephanie
Thanks in advance!!
