In Response to Baby Name Remorse

((hugs)) to you, and I hope the counseling is helpful.

Veronica is on our short list for a girl with the nn of Vera being our first choice. :-)

I love that you used the name that meant so much to you! I love your sibset. :-)

In Response to Introduction & Thanks

Congratulations! It's a lovely name!

I have to say, JK Rowling was absolutely brilliant with her naming choices. There was much thought that went into each name, I think. I can't think of any other authors off the top of my head who were more brilliant in their name choices.


DD is Evangeline. :-)

Seraphina, Gabriella, and Celeste are on our wish list (with many other names).

In Response to Jack, Max, Luke

I only know what was said to us. I'll email you privately.

K3lly is my guess.

I did the same. I know what periods of life certain friends entered it based on what they call me. :-)

In Response to That poor Wentz boy

Oh, I've always loved Rivka. Thank you, Miriam!

In Response to Sibling for Duncan?

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.

In Response to Jack, Max, Luke

((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.

In Response to A name for a boy

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) Moira
2) Bryony
3) Miriam (although I love Maisie immensely, it's a nn to me)

Top three boy names:

1) Oliver
2) Elliott
3) 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.
