In Response to Initials opinion?

I don't think it is a problem, especially for a first, middle. If she writes her initials it will probably be first last, or all 3 together. I think it is a lovely name.


I like Marietta and Rosalie better as middle names than Marie. I don't find Rosalie and Resse to clash, I think they sound good together.


I like both names. However, Audrey is much more trendy right now and I love Clara more!

Thank you all for your help. Maybe I will go with Quentin Levi. I still have a month left until he is here, but it does have a nice ring to it.

Calvin and baby 5.0 are the youngest and will be a little less than 2 years apart.

I like pet names, and call Calvin Cal a lot, but not in any official way. He is usually just Calvin. I think Q, Quen or Quent would all be great nicknames for Quentin. We have 3 daughters too, I would rather not list their names so we aren't as identifiable, and they sound different. So maybe we wouldn't end up sounding like just a matched set? You are doing a great job talking me into Quentin :)


I love Sylvie Aurora! It is a perfect name with her sister's too. Both unusual, but recognizable and so beautiful. Sylvie was on my shortlist if I was expecting a girl, but I am expecting a boy.

Last week I liked Levi more, but I like Quentin a bit more this week. I guess I really worry about Calvin and Quentin sounding too much alike otherwise I would be all for it. They are going to be really close in age, so their names are going to be said together a lot. Thanks for your opinion on how they sound.

Your popularity statistics are really informative, thank you! It seems like Levi might get even more popular as the years go by.

I want a name that is a bit different, but not TOO different. I wonder why Quentin isn't being used more, and I guess that makes me worry that people won't like it or think it is weird.

Thanks! Calvin is already my son, I am looking for a name for his baby brother. Quentin and Levi are the ones I am choosing between. Even with the spelling Jakob, I just feel like it is too common for my last name. Thank you for helping though.

Eva (Eeva) and Juliet were two others I am considering. I don't actually know if baby is a boy or girl yet, I am just pondering girl names right now.

I don't mind saying "nope, just Sylvie" occaisionally. I am going to be annoyed if I get asked every time though, you know?

I guess I am worried about people thinking it is a nickname, or mishearing Sylvia. I have always been of the opinion that a Katie should be a Katherine and a Gracie a Grace on the birth certificate. My other daughters are Mad3le1ne and Lyd1a. My mom thought it was kind of a weird name, she didn't know it was seperate from Sylvia.

Margot, Willa, Lillian

Alexis is the one from your list I like best. Some of my other favorite A names are: Annabeth, Annabel, Alexandra, Abigail, Anna, Aurora, and Aria.


Good Luck with your search. Find a first name you love first and the middle is a lot easier.

What if you gave her an Ann name for her first? I think Anna is beautiful! Also, Anneleise, Annika, Annabel

Thank you so much for all of your help. I really try to name my children with great care and it helps to have the opinions of others who do too.

Lydia Caroline Bell is the best to me. I love all the middle names with Lydia. I feel like Mary and Lydia are the same style and are equally beautiful and timeless. I feel like Ruth Bell isn't enough syllables, and I don't really care for Florence or Frances as first names.

Annie could also be short for Annika. I love Margot, Julia, and Clara from your list. I think nutcracker when I hear Clara, not the cow :)

In Response to Emerson- girl or boy?

It sounds boyish to me, but I think it has become mostly a girl name to most. It could really go wither way. I would suggest a clearly masculine or feminine middle name if you go with Emerson. I love when people use their family last names for first names! I don't like it so much when people use unrelated last names as first names.

Both are great names, I think you are overthinking it :) With a world of possibilities, committing to just 2 is so hard.
