K3lly is my guess.
I did the same. I know what periods of life certain friends entered it based on what they call me. :-)
Oh, I've always loved Rivka. Thank you, Miriam!
I love Malcolm too. We have cats that are brothers named Duncan and Malcolm (we do Shakespearean names--these two are from Macbeth), so they just seem to "go" together to me.
They go very well together. They're both on my list for future daughters maybe (both of mine have 4 syllable names too).
I agree a single syllable middle is probably best.
Yep--there are two Lucians in my daughter's Montessori preschool (although one is in the grade school). I'm also PNW.
((hugs)) We too ended up with a horrifying objection to Max (we weren't even pg at the time) with our fairly German last name starting with an "S". We too ended up giving up on it. I'm sorry.
You could go a little more fusty with Alistair (a form of Alexander). That's not top ten anywhere. ;-)
(You are not alone. I have multiple versions of lists over the last 20+ years--before I even had a boyfriend!)
Top three girls names from your list with Elena and Ronan:
1) Moira2) Bryony3) Miriam (although I love Maisie immensely, it's a nn to me)
Top three boy names:
1) Oliver2) Elliott3) Tobias
So I used to be fluent in Spanish and got the Miqueas pronunciation immediately. That said, depending on where you live, pronunciation could be problematic.
However Michaeas is not any better as it looks very similar to Michael which is going to get you MYK-ay-us on a good day. MYK-ay-ee-ass on a bad day.
That's likely because most of the Aubrey's are currently too young to have FB.
Ohh..... Vivian Elise makes me very happy. :-) Love that combo!
Ok--loving all the names for boys you have been mulling around. Our daughter would have been a William Patrick nn Liam if she had surprised us by growing the penis that our son prayed would grow (it didn't).
What about using Patrick as a first name? Patrick William sounds just as nice to my ear.
Not sure any of these would float your boat, but here are the names related to William:http://www.behindthename.com/name/william/related
Othe celtic names that might work instead of Patrick:Angus, Donovan, Finn, Lochlan, Neil, Nolan, Owen, Duncan (Scottish), Donald (Gaelic), Brendan, Niall, Kieran, Kian, Dillon/Dylan, Eamon, Orin, Riordan
Me too! As is Lorna Doone. :-)
Ok--I need to check out these books now. :-)
I know a little 3 month old girl named Ezri. She's adorable. :-)
My husband is Gryph0n, and only one person has ever attempted to call him Griff in over 20 years.
We're currently doing PM preschool too. I haven't had a chance to get names yet without looking like a creeper though as the classes are fairly large.
I'll be surprised if they go with Alexandra or Louise for a girl (despite my loving both of them) since despite long names, recent royals tend to not repeat among siblings. With Alexander Louis as middle names, I think that *might* eliminate Alexandra and Louise.
I'm personally hoping for a Frederick Edward Arthur (or some variation of this -- I'm guessing not Frederick as a first though since his brother is George) or a Victoria Charlotte Frances.
Ok--so what would Sara/Sarah and Rebecca/Rebekah pronunciations be in the original Hebrew? I love both of these names, but would like to learn more!
