Longtime NE that works with children.
Lives in the Los Angeles area.
How about Archer? You could still have the nn Archie.
Other names to consider:
I say go for the two middle names, especially if your husband feels strongly about it and you could go either way.
lots of luck!
What about Seamus? (With possible nn's Shay or Shem?)
A bit old ladyish and Southern, but they fit well with Nash (and I think they're adorable!).
Lots of luck!!!!
Juno is still being 'discussed' between the parents (he is not as keen as she is on the name). Olive is officially off the table and a new suggestion has taken her place:
What do you all think?
Your feedback has been most welcome and much appreciated!
Does everyone still associate the movie with the name? It came out in 2007, so my friend (who is aware of the film) thought it wouldn't be much of an issue. Good to know that there is still a strong association. Thanks!
Thank you! I brought it up once, but having someone completely neutral reaffirm the food/cook issue helps. She scratched it off the list :)
My favorite is Juliet Victoria! It sounds just lovely!
I grew up with an Aunt Juliette, so in my opinion, it works perfectly on an adult.
You can't go wrong with any of your choices, they are all very pretty, but my vote is for Juliet!
It's funny how tastes change with age. When I was little I remember thinking my friend Jessica's family was so cool because they all had J names (Jennifer, Jason, and Jonathan). Needess to say, that's no longer my style. Now I like a little more individuality among siblings.
Here are some suggestions if you can't convince DH to use Henry:
I'll also throw out August & Theodore (which I think I suggested last time... still love'm).
I agree, Rose as a FN is not that common (at least I don't know any under 5) and so sweet and lovely!
Rosemary would be my second choice... makes me think of Rosemary Clooney, so it has an appealing vintage charm to my ears.
Not a big fan of the other two, but love, love, love Rosamund.
Wonderful choice! Congrats!
I'm not usually one to dwell on name meanings if I like the style, but I really love that you are putting so much thought into this! Growing up, your children will definitely know how much they were wanted :)
Evelyn or Vivian & Theodore
Eliza or Naomi & Isaac
Ruth & Asher
I love Theo! Would it be short for Theodore? It is an adorable name with a wonderful meaning.
Here are some girl suggestions:
Beatrice - blessed; she who brings happiness
Blythe - free spirit, happy, carefree
Evelyn - wished for child
Felicity - happy
Grace - eloquence, kindness, mercy, favor
Olive - the olive branch is the symbol of peace
Verity - truth
Vivian - life
Good luck, and lots of joy and happiness with the new additions to your family!!!
I agree with everything hyz said plus I love the Ezra/Jonah sibset for formal occasions. I'm not particularly religious, and love Old Testament names, so I see no problem there (especially since the little guy will mostly go by Huck anyway).
Wow! Twins!!! I'm sure the news is a bit overwhelming, but big congratulations! I love so many of your name choices!
g/g: Agnes & Eloise or Agnes & Blythe
b/b: Edmund & August (both of these are long time favorites!) Don't know if you go for nn's, but Teddy & Gus are adorable together.
g/b: Agnes & Edmund
Good luck and happy naming!!!
Ohhhh... guilty pleasures my DH would absolutely veto, but I have mad crushes on!
I love Bronwen, and altough I visually like the name better with a "y", I know that wen with an "e" is the feminine in Welsh, so I'd personally stick with Bronwen. That's just me though. It will still sound just as lovely with either spelling.
Happy naming!! :)
I don't know if your family likes nn's, but Teddy and Ned are adorable options if Edmund seems too formal for everyday use :)
Another big congrats!!!!
I like some of these names, they've just always read preppy to me (which is not a bad thing).
While Catherine itself is not exactly uncommon, it is classically beautiful and there are so many nn's to make it more individual for your daughter. I think Kit is a great choice that has history yet is not really used as much as some others (Kate, Katie, Kitty, Kat, Kath, Kathy, Kay - then repeat most of'm with a C). Kit sounds unique, fresh, and charming. I also think it can grow with her and is not stuck sounding too juvenile when she gets older, plus she'll always have Catherine if she wants a more professional name.
