hah i never heard that pearl divers thing before.
actually i never thought about that before. it definitely seems like it would quite complicate matters!!!
wifey picked 'Liu Ling Xiao' and she seems quite attached to the name.. ah.. maybe should just not have an english name at all..? that seems quite awful! combinging chinese characters with english doesnt work.. and pinyin is not a nice alternative imo
well she will be born in China, so she will have an official Chinese name as well. I think that takes some of the pressure off me for including a chinese name in there.
proposed chinese name: Liu Ling Xiao
I guess that would make Elinor pretty solid, since she could go by Lin/Ling
The cultures are Chinese/English.
My sister recommended "Lena" as well, which honors my grandmother and mother simultaneously, although I specifically liked the meaning of the name Eleanor because it also has lots of "outsider/foreigner" implications. I suppose ive settled on some variant of this as the first name, so, PLEASE HIT ME WITH Eleanor/Ellie/Ella/Lena + middle name suggestions !!
A poster above asks about unisex names, my wife would also appreciate a unisex name although I dont know how thats going to work here.. For the middle name --->> Some form of Margit or Ruth ? Because Eleanor is one grandmothers name, Ruth/Margit come from the other grandmother..
Eleanor Marg Hatfield
Eleanor Ruth Hatfield
Eleanor Luna Hatfield
Eleanor Ada Hadfield
Eleanor Lucy Hadfield
blah i have no fn idea!! help me baby name wizards!!!
THESE ARE REPLIES FROM THE LAST TRY I MADE TO GET HELP::
Eleanor Anastasia is very pretty, but if you find it to be too long, how about Nora Anastasia?
I love Elea. I would pronounce it like 'IHL-ee-ah' though, whereas some people might say 'EL-ee' or 'EL-ee-ah'.
Elea Anastasia would be very pretty.
If you're looking for androgenous names, you could go to 'Lea' or 'Leigh'. They obviously sound the same as 'Lee' but are percieved as more feminine variants (here in Australia, at least).
Based on Elle/Eleanor & Dana, I'll suggest a variety of names. Some lean unisex while others are all-girl. Darcy, Shea, Lane/Laney/Delaney, Luna, Harper, Lena, Lora, Dell. Let us know if any of these interest you. The better we understand what you are looking for, the better our suggestions will get.
I find Eleanor very easy to nickname. Here are some: Ellie, Ella, Elle, Nell, Nora, and Lena, EI had the name Alice Eleanor on my list for a while.
how about something like
Dana Elle Hatfield
Dana Ellie Hatfield
Dana Ella (lol)
Wild Elle Elle Wilder
Elle Wild Ellie Wilder
Wild Ellie ... rarrrrr
shorter first names to flow. yea i like where this is going!! but maybe a bit better androgynous short simple first name than Dana.. hmmm... dunno
Anastasie Anastisia something that can abbreviate to short and sweet english name for her but i feel like combining Eleanor Anastasie Hatfield is quite too big the mouthful..,
more androgynous style names are prefered, really!
my sister also called Kristen (wow he seems greedy now hahahahaha) .. that gets complicated!!
dads middle name is Austin , but, my cousin already has that name..
