Unusual first name with classic middle name??
Hi! I’m new around here, and my husband and I are expecting our first in June...and still no clue on names! Our styles differ quite a bit in that he likes classic, traditional, professional-sounding names (e.g. Charlotte, Elizabeth). I’m a huge fan of non-traditional names (e.g. River, Avalon, Selah).
While hubby likes my names ok, he thinks they would sound horrible on a doctor or lawyer. I agree to an extent. I feel a name should be an expression of your personality though. And, I mean, what if my baby girl is a writer, or singer, or something like that and needs an artistic, memorable name?
So, we’ve come up with two compromises.
1. Fun first name, traditional middle name. That way, if our girl wants to be a politician or something she has her middle name to fall back on.
2. Long traditional first name with an eclectic nickname
Please inspire us if you can! Opposites may attract, but they should never pick out baby names together!
(Also, I forgot to directly mention: baby is a girl ;))
