Help! Need name for baby girl that goes with Evangeline (Eva)
We're having our second little girl in October, and we're having a horrible time finding names! I'll admit I'm super picky, and I have tons of rules, so I'm a huge part of the problem (though hubby gets some credit too, because he can't seem to get out of the 80's when it comes to picking names.)
Our daughter's name is Evangeline Reilly. We call her Eva.
I like names that have meaning, so nothing kre8tive and made-up. And I avoid anything that's really popular.
Our last name is long -- 4 syllables, and VERY Greek, so any name has to be 'strong enough' to balance it out. Last name starts with 'C', and ends with '-sis', and I'm not a huge fan of alliteration in names, so no hard K or C's to start, and nothing that ends in s.
I only like names with good nicknames as well. I figure people WILL shorten your child's name, so I might as well pick something for them so I won't be cringing when people call them by it.
We have a few that are on the list:
Alexandra (Alex, Lexa or Lexie for a NN)
Vivienne (struggling with a good NN on this one. Viv is just too similar to Eva, but maybe Vinni??)
But we're still very open to suggestions.
So....have at it! Any suggestions are welcome and very much appreciated!! I'm having nightmares about sitting the hospital bed with the birth certificate in my hand and no idea what to write on it!
