About Me

We are expecting our first baby in October. We chose not to find out the gender! We are African American and we would like our childs name to reflect his or her heritage if possible.

Evangeline is beautiful! Evie is such a sweet nickname! I didn't think of any religious connotation until you mentioned it honestly.

In Response to Two Cute Names?

Thank you! For a second I'm like well there goes another baby naming forum. I didn't think I'd ever find one accepting of African American sounding names! I'm like whenever I post something should I have to put the disclaimer that my child will be black so I don't get European suggestions? It's not that I don't LIKE those kinds of names, it's just I'd rather not name my black baby Hannah. And to assume that's lower class? I thought this was 2017 smh.

Well actually I was teased by a girl named Lenora in school and Honora sounds forced. And tbh we ARE ethnic minorities and we don't mind our name being associated with being a minority since her face will be lol.

Haha we spelled it that way because the original spelling kept auto correcting to Senora, the Spanish word for lady or ma'am, I'm not sure which I don't speak Spanish! I didn't think about sayonara! I love the name Norah, but I like Sa- because it makes it our own. Is that tacky?

 Thanks for y'alls input! I like the pronunciation SAY-lah. The niece's name is LAY-uh like as in princess leia from star wars! Sorry for the confusion!

In Response to Nolynn for a girl

I think it could be difficult to pronounce by looking at it on paper. Are you wanting it to sound like Noland? Or NAH-lin? Maybe a more phonetic spelling. I like the pronunciation if NO-lin is what you're going for. I knew a girl with that name who spelled it differently growing up and the teachers NEVER got it right!
