I like the sound a lot, but I have to agree, it's unusable.

I did once live with a black cat named Lucy who we nicknamed Lucifer. I think I'd even name a pet Lucifer. But a human, no.

I think they are too close. There are also SO many names with the same sounds that are popular right now: Aiden, Cayson, Grayson, Brayden, etc. 

What about:

Landon

Logan

Loudon

Lincoln

Lachlan

Lennon

Lawrence

Linden

A quick google search shows me that there is already a romance author, as well as a porn star, named Ruby Steele. What about Ruby as a middle name instead?

 

Julianna and...

Claudia Ruby

Hazel Ruby

Francesca Ruby

Georgia Ruby

Harriet Ruby

Lillian Ruby

Matilda Ruby

Camilla Ruby

 

Middle name ideas for Julianna:

Julianna April

I would really like us all to think harder about why a "girl's" name on a boy is embarrassing and unnacceptable, while a "boy's" name on a girl is edgy and cool.

Also, I know both male and female Rowans.

California themed names: there are so many Spanish names used for cities i.e. (San) Francisco, Diego, Jose, Mateo, Rosa, Barbara, Luis... I also like Callie/Cally.

I would probably not name a baby after a TV show.

In Response to Baby girl

I've met female Kyles. But, I do think it's too much of a burden for this child to bear. Are there any other family members you'd want to honor? If you do want to put it somewhere in her name, maybe the middle name Kyla.

I don't think it makes sense to use Alivia to avoid the popularity of Olivia- they're essentially the same name.

My favorites from your list are Harper, Cameron, and Graham.

Others you might like:

Rowan

Rowena

Collin

Hadley

Mallory

Myla

Another Jew chiming in to say naming your kid Cohen is offensive!

 

The spelling does not matter - it's a transliteration from Hebrew letters anyway, so you will find various spellings in English. Jews with the last names Cohen, Kohen, Cohn, Kohn, Kohan, etc are all descended from Kohanim (Cohen's).

In Response to Three Weeks to Go!

My vote is for Alyssa, just because it flows better with the last name and doesn't repeat the "na" sound.

 

You may also like:

Ariel

Aurora

Amaya

Alexandra

Cassandra

Viola

Violet

You've got some good names on this list, but I don't think Stormi/Stormy or Geisha(!) are usable at all.

Dorian

Jacoby

Cairo

Amal

Felipe

Griffin

Matteo/Mateo

Marek

Naphtali

Soren

Tobin

Cedar

Sylvan

In Response to What do you think??

good choice!

It reminds me of afghans too! But I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing - it gives the name a cozy vibe.

My nonnie totally has a brown and orange afghan too...

My vote is for Chiara! If you wanted to anglicize it you could spell it Kiara, but either way it's a beautiful name.
