In Response to Do you like your name?

I know a couple named Aaron and Erin. Not as much confusion since they're opposite genders, but still funny.

In Response to Help with Name Remorse

Nicholas has long been on my faves list, so I love your name choice. That said, I can see why you may be having doubts. I feel like maybe your FIL would back off on the whole Mikey thing if he had something else to call his little grandson. Maybe Cole or Coley? That would also give you something to call him (also, FWIW, I adore the nickname Cole for Nicholas!).

My favorites are Marion Giselle and August Franklin. Marion and Franklin are favories of mine, and I love the high-gloss feel of Giselle.

My favorite Celtic name is Fallon. I'll also suggest Ainsley and Erin.

I like them together, very sweet.

In Response to Renaming Myself

My vote is for Sofie-Rose because I tend to think hyphenated second names should be short. I also like the sound of Sofie-Elinor.

I prefer the cadence of L3xi Mar!na Rae. I think that the length of Marina helps to counter the more choppy Lexi and Rae.

Very interesting. Elly for a boy is kind of growing on me......

In Response to Renaming Myself

In Response to Love, Like, Lose girls

Love: Marian ( my favorite of the Mar- names, reminds me of Maid Marian from Robin Hood), Sylvie (so cute and French), Ada (I recently read a book about a girl named Ada who lived during WWII, and immediately wondered why on Earth her name isn't more popular).

Like: Argenta (reminds me of magenta, except with a more botanical sound), Opal (quirky, but very pretty and underused), Marjorie (immediately picture a woman in a World War 2 uniform, but that's kind of a cool girl power thing, and I like the sound).

Lose: Estelle (too light and airy), Rhiannon (too difficult to pronounce, I've never liked it), Coretta (bit too strange and old lady-ish for me).

New List: Marian, Sylvie, Ada, Argenta, Opal, Marjorie, Violeta, Willow, Astrid

Ell, Elly (female, but still cute), Ellan, Gan, Ellig, Elligy

And for a laugh, Nelli-guns.

(1) Yes, I think Owen and Emory are a very cute sibset.

(2) Although I am fully aware that Emory is a traditionaly masculine name, it automatically says girl to me, and I love it as a girls' name.

Boys: I wouldn't do Jasper if you and your husband both have J- names. Have you considered Aspen or Casper (one of my faves)? Other nature-y names for boys include Basil, Everest, Moss, Phoenix, River, Sky, and Stone.

Girls: I like Everly, and I personally love Evie, but it doesn't sound like the "right" name for you. Maybe Skylar, Gracelyn, or Aubrey? I like Hazel and Olive as well. June, Ruby, Pearl, Jewel, Opal, Autumn?

Great suggestions, just wanted to put out there that I know 4 Elises, aging 1-18. It's a beautiful name, none the less, and it may just be where I live.

March 7, 2017 04:56 PM

G, Ran/Range, Grunge, Gauge, et cetera. My parents didn't have any nicknames picked out when my brother was born, and eventually they wouls just kind of come. Don't stress it!

March 1, 2017 09:05 PM

Congrats! Beckett, Callum, Dalton, Dawson, Deacon, Elias, Fabian, Finlay, Gian, Indigo, Jacoby, Marco, Marcus, Mattias, Moss, Prescott, Quinlan/Quinton, Reuben, River, Stewart/Steward, Titus, Zane.

Good point. That is really strange! What kind of spam is that!
