I like the look of this name, and it has good sounds, but when I say it, I feel like I am saying an adjective, which is odd for a name.
Having literally never been in the same room with another Elle, I needed this perspective from others.
Thanks,Jujube and Sharalyn.
I appreciate the positive thoughts and warm wishes. I was so worried about all that could go wrong when I learned it was triplets that I couldn't imagine crossing the 31 week mark.
Thanks, I had friends named Karen and Sharon and they hated it, so there was no doubt in my mind that they would have names that fit but didn't match.
The boy will be named Jack.
Thank you all for sharing your experiences and insights. I feel better, which means a lot when 31 weeks pregnant with triplets.
Thanks, I read the post, and I see what you mean. Oh, teenage girls...I think you are right, if the biggest problem is their popular names, I'l be lucky.
That does make me feel better--I am probably over thinking this.
Good point, TheOtherHungarian:
Being triplets and being identical twins in a set of triplets will probably be what people focus on first.
Thank you so much for that perspective. We did put a lot of thought into the names we chose, and they have real meaning to us beyond what they actuay mean or in what category they fall. It is good to know that this meant something to you.
Hi and Congrats:
I am curious. Why are you using the same first initial for all three? I am also having triplets; I'm 27 weeks, and I stayed away from matching names on purpose. It seems hard enough for multiples to be seen individuals.
Taking an androgynous name and changing y to ee or i doesn't magically make the name feminine, but it does make it appropriate for a career dancing around a pole.
How about Jamisen? I am not a fan of -son names for girls, so I spelled it -sen. It is professional and allows for Jamie naturally.
The name Alexia doesn't need to be defended or forgiven. Despite this novel being set in Victorian England, the main character is half Italian, and this alienates her from others, including her mother and half-sisters. The name Alexia is meant to remind the reader that the character is foreign and exotic and different, which isn't a good thing in this context.
I have never met a Satine, and I must admit, I think it is an awful name. It sounds like a fabric, not a person's name. For me, it is a bit like naming your daughter Velvet. The career options that come to mind are not good.
As in Bianca Jagger, perhaps, hyz?
The author is Beatrix, which is also a lovely name--unusual without being weird, and a nice meaning.
I wanted to name one of our triplets Beatrice, but my partner just didn't care for it, so I vote for Beatrice.
I am pretending that your last name is Newman.
Quinn Newman sounds perfectly fine to me.
