Thanks for all the ideas! We've actually just started talking about Charlize - interesting that you also brought it up. A lot of other options we hadn't yet considered, too! We'll definitely be spending some time reviewing.
I did like the film as a teen, so that might be why I have some liking for the name going in. The full name was Siddalee Walker...and the character had some admirable qualities. The mother I do not wish to emulate - ha! I guess I struggle with the random made-up names because I feel like so many variations in today's world are just that. I don't want an over the top common name, but I would like something that people won't butcher when they go to say it. I've waited quite some time for a little one and want a name that stands out just in the right way. I do like the spelling alternative, Sidalie, that you provide better...thank you for your thoughts!
I had never heard Sidony - and I'm guessing my husband hasn't either. I'll run it by him but the unfamiliar rarely wins unforunately.
Oddly enough my husband feels that Sidney is decidely girl - he would never agree to it for a boy's name. I don't think I could do Malia or Melania because of the political ties right now. I'm not a fan of Millie and a cousin that has a Margeret that they call Millie (don't ask me how they got to that nn). Thanks for the options...girl names are hard!
Thanks for the response! I like Sadie but our friends named their dog that and I can't get it out my head that it's a dog's name ;-( DH will definitely think Finley is a boy unfortunately.
My grandfather's name was Marcellus, though he wasn't french. He went by Mike, but I think there are a ton of nickname options. It reminded me a bit of Parcel :)
I've seen Frankie on a few lists lately as a unisex name. That feels more inline with your other names than Franklin - just a thought!
For some reason I picked out a boy doll and his name was Van Timothy
We only have the Redwood River near here, so I won't be using that name :-)
Camden is the biggest state park around here and is widely used as a landmark. It does have postivie associations, but still might be weird for a name since it's only about 10 miles away.
Yes, I think we will have to go with a mroe classic middle name for sure...also DH thinks it's a boy, (my gut says girl) so getting him to think about girl names has been harder, lol. I like Reagan and Sydney - I'll be adding those to my list! Thank you!
I like many of the names on your boy list, but here's a question, is it weird to name a baby the name of a nearby town or landmark? We live with 15 minutes of Porter and a state park called Camden...so I wasn't sure on that.
I know I couldn't be the only one that liked it for a girl! And I do like all 3 of those names - thank you! We also considered Rhys for a boy :-)
I said Celia to my husband last night and he didn't shut it down, so that's a start! I've seen Calliope on here quite often lately, I also like it. I would worry about pronounciation issues (even from my in-laws), but it's cute!
Thanks for the ideas! I like Lauren and Lola...I'll have to run them by the hubby.
I've never heard Stellan before - interesting!
I do like the name Lauren! It's classic without being too overdone, I think. However, if you watched the first episode of this season's Bachelor, there are like 4 Lauren's- ha!
Just a few more ideas for you - Oscar, Palmer, Marcellus, Thatcher
I will likely not win the battle on Logan for a girl, so you're safe. The other "L" names you provided seem so fussy - I'd rather have something simple.
I actually really like Blaise but our good friends named their new puppy Blaze about 6 months ago so I struggle with that overlap.
I will definitely check out names from other languages - I actually just downloaded an app that can help with that. Good idea.
For a girl, I want something that isn't so common, something that is strong, independent and not overtly girly. I also like Blakely and though it's fairly common, Lauren or Loren. Does that help?
Thanks for all the possibilities! Adelaide was my grandmother's name, who I admired a great deal, I'm so happy to see that name suggested by other people! Thank you!
Thanks for the ideas! I like Lawson and will definitely add that to the list. I also like Anya (I've only heard it one other time and it was a couple that has adopted children from 4 different countries and tried to give them all names with some of their heritage attached, so I hadn't considered it, but it's beautiful).
As for the other two, longer lists, I will run them by my hubby -it's a great place to start!
