Leona vs. Leonora
Which do you like better, Leona or Leonora?
My husband's grandma was named Leona, and as much as I want to like it, I just don't know if I do. It is still very early in our pregnancy, so we don't know if it sill be a boy or girl yet, but I am really drawn to some version of this name. One of my grandfather's was named Leonard so it would be honoring both sides of the family.
We would use Louann for the middle name (after my grandma) and I like the idea of using Lilou for a nickname. Plus my husband's other grandma's name is Lee so it also works as an honor to her as well.
I also really like the name Leonie but I feel like there would be a lot of pronunciation confusion with it.
Our daughter's name is Adelaide and goes by Ada most of the time (we're big nicknamers). I am defninitely drawn to longer names with shorter nicknames. But I kind of like the funkiness of Leona.
Anyway, I wanted to get some other people's thoughts and opinions on these names. TIA!
