Thank you so much! Your suggestions have all been great and helpful to get our discussion going again. Part of the problem might be that I know Georgie, and am having a hard time "assigning" a name to a baby I don't know yet. But with all these great comments, we'll pick a great name for her and get to know her (soon!).
I went to high school with a male Remington. Lately there have been several baby girl Remington's popping up in my area, including my cousin's new baby. So far, she mostly gets called Remi. And yes, her dad is a hunter.
Congratulations on baby #3!
Here are my ideas:
Samuel, Levi, Luke, David, Julian, Leo/Leon
My husband and I lived in an international community overseas as well. Some of these suggestions come from boys in our community, some I thought of that fit your criteria. Hugo was popular there, and I prefer it to Hugh, but it doesn't feel particularly American to me.
I think your're right- when I read Georgiana, Louisa and Katherine, I didn't spot that Katherine was "different" until you pointed it out in the next line. I like that.
My husband especially liked the suggestions of Theodora and Josephine, and Frances is one I've thrown around quite a bit, so I'm amazed with how spot on you were with distiguishing out style tastes! We call Georgiana Georgie most of the time, so I would worry a little about having a Jo, two traditionally boy nicknames for sisters. Just because I would probably feel I had to keep that up with any future girls.
All in all, your comments were spot on and so helpful.
Love Rafferty and Nora! Maybe my problem is that I just like too many...
Also, I was surprised at the strong connection to Brigham Young in everyone's mind! Especially because my husband's biggest hang up with Zipporah is that we aren't Jewish.
We agree Violette, I think Phillipa and Hugo are my favorite as well! Just, is Phillipa too...out there? But I especially love the nickname Pippa.
My husband and I both stopped and said, hmm, Edmund. I like it a lot, and like that it has connections to literature(The Chronicles of Narnia, The Count of Monte Cristo), like Georgiana(found in Pride and Prejudice and Great Expectations).
I can't even explain how wonderful all these responses were! They opened up some good conversation and brainstorming for us. I love the idea of the fun/eclectic mix of names, but alas, that was the grouping my husband liked the least. Such great suggestions and a great, fresh look for us. Thank you!!
Ethel is darling...I like Sybil and Sylvia as well, which have kinda the same feel to me.
Yes to everything you said! I love Ophelia, and Portia, but they aren't exactly examples of women I'd like a daughter of mine to grow up to be like.
First of all, I have to say that most of the names that have been posted are great and I want to say go for it! I was nervous to use our favorite name, but six months in to our baby girl's life, it gets more and more comfortable and the reactions to her name and nickname have been overwhelmingly positive.
That said, I have two names I love but will never use:
Sabine- I think this name is soo beautiful and my mouth loves saying it, but it's just too French
Kristen- Just does not go with our daughter's name, and doesn't feel modern
