Unsure of name for future child
I've always been a bit obsessed with baby names. I love them, and I even have an extensive list of all the names that I'd seriously consider if I were pregnant.
And now I am, and my biggest roadblock right now is that there's a name that I absolutely love - it's been a solid favourite for well over the past 5 years. But my family and friends have been super dismissive of it because of its spelling and pronunciation.
It's Saoirse - pronounced like Seersha/Sirsha.
Everything about it is a draw for me. It's Irish/Scottish, I'm Scottish/Irish. But I'm really scared now to propose it to my husband because I've had so many negative reactions to it in the past. I've hardly mentioned the name out loud for the past 2 years because of the reactions I got earlier into my love affair with the name, and I was always kind of anxious about jumping baby names on him in the first place. And I have NO clue what kind of middle name would go with Saoirse R(3 syllable surname).
There's also the situation of honouring people in my life that have played massive roles for me. My aunt Lesley, my late grandmother Eleanore, my late friend Reed, the Wonderful Leonard Cohen and it's just a lot to consider. I feel like these names might flow better with the names down below, just because they're not complicated...
Realistically, though, here are some other names on my list that I'd be okay with.
- Lana / Leta / Lotje
I'm in some serious need of advice from baby name wizards...
Thanks in advance for any comments and help!
