What about names with initials E V, like Elle Victoria?

September 21, 2016 12:48 AM

I believe it is Finnish name, pronounced like San-nah (anna). I think it is okay, and wouldn't be a problem for a kid.

I think it used to be done in our culture, when babies died more often, but not anymore. Besides, what kid wants to feel they are a replacement for an older sibling who died? Perhaps as a middle name, but not first.

In Response to Wesley- for a GIRL!

I like it but would never dare. It makes me think of Wesley from BTVS and Angel. Perhaps Wesleigh, Weslyn, Westlyn..

Sometimes it can work, sometimes it can't. I feel that for example Regina Rose would work, but your names, no. They both start with VER -VER, regardless of their meaning. I would go with another V name, like Victoria, Vanessa, Virginia, etc. in the place of one of your names.

In Response to What if its a boy?

Honestly,  I find Henry a bit boring. I would probably go for something like Hendrix. Warner as a first name would be okay. Martin just feels old.

In Response to Baby #2 - Name Help

I love Margot, but I think you'll get a lot of variations on how it is spelled- Margo, Margaux, etc.

I like Sienna, maybe Sierra?

I also really like Ravenna, but my husband said no.

In Response to Sibling dilemma

They are variations of the same name, as others have mentionned, but I think the general population wouldn't know this, only name geeks would. If you like them, then I say go for it.

It is really hard to predict how much initials will be present in your baby's life.

For instance, he may work at a job and his email address could be assigned as, or, or you never know.

I went to a military school, and we had our last name and initials stenciled on many uniforms, like Smith GA, and it was a high-hazing environment, so the upperclass cadets probably would notice and remark on it (make fun of him for it).

However, i think in normally elementary/middle/high schools, other kids wouldn't know the middle names.

In Response to Names too similar?

Yes, I agree, too close for siblings, but not for cousins/kids of friends.

If they were cousins and you wanted Alicia for example, I might say it is too close, but hey, you can't give up the only name you can agree on for so little.

Thanks. To be clear, it isn't a family name from his side, he just likes it. His family wants us to have a boy, that is all.

In Response to Lucy or Lucie

My (french) sister in law is Lucie, so I guess I prefer that spelling. Personally, I like the name Luscinia (latin name for nightingale) but husband nixed it.

Oh yeah, our first is Stella, he actually came up with it, it has special significance for me, my grandmother was Estelle, and I love the meaning of star.

Also, I am not sure "Stella & Alexandra" goes together, but I suppose it isn't really important.

August 16, 2016 03:38 AM

Thanks, yeah, I can just imagine the question "Mom, dad, how did you choose my name?" "Well honey, your father wanted a boy named Alexandre, but we got you instead, so we decided to name you Alexandra." What a disappointing response  for a little girl to hear!

No, I guess I would just tell her "It was a name that we, especially your father, liked".

I don't mind using a nickname everyday, such as Ally or Al. Not too fond of Alex, Lexi. Xandra is okay.

In Response to Too many names?

I say go for it.

My daughter has three names, her first name and then one middle name for each grandma. That way, neither grandma feels left out.

If we have a boy, we will probably do the same, one for each grandma, and if we have another girl, I guess start branching out to great-grandmas or aunts.

I like a lot of these names.

for our daughter, it was between Elena and Stella, finally chose Stella. 

If we have a second daughter, will probably give her a middle name of Lucia, in honor of SIL Lucie.

Hadrian? Hector?

With two H's already, I feel funny suggesting non-H names. I feel like the kid will feel like odd one out.

Otherwise, I don't know, maybe Archer, Charles, Drake, Grant, Maxwell, Spencer,

October 8, 2014 12:58 AM

Hmm, there are several I would use.


Clara, Evelyn, Pearl, Rose, Vera, Violet


Everett, Max, Theodore
