Konrad, Klara & ?
Hi! After my husband recently told me he just couldn't get on board with my two favorite names - Eloise and Mathilde - it's back to the drawing board for our third child, a daughter. One name I've been considering is Greta, but I worry about how well it goes with our last name: H1ckey. I am curious how you think it goes, or what teasing potential the full name Greta H1ckey has (besides the fact that our last name is H1ckey!)? [I find one major flaw with Greta which I am worried about - and which I will disclose later - but I am probably thinking waaayyy too hard about it, and no one else may even notice.]
I'd also love your thoughts on our new "top names" list for a sister for Konrad and Klara:
Annika (AHN-i-kuh pronunciation)
Anneliese (AHN-uh-leece or AHN-uh-leece-uh)
Names we like/considered, but can't use include: Rosemary, Scarlett or any other name that doubles as a color (see H1ckey, above.), Georgia, Josephine, Elsie, Louisa or Aurelia (DH vetoed), Iris, Esther or Mabel (I vetoed, with hesitation).
We are open to suggestions, too! We have 8 more weeks (hopefully) to settle on a name. Thank you, you brilliant name enthusiasts who understand my obsession with finding the right one!
