4 Weeks To Go And No Name!
Well, we need help. I'm in my final weeks and at baby name stalemate.
My daughter is Georgiana, we call her Georgie. I completely LOVE her name. 90% of people we meet seem to love her name. I think it hits many of the major style/trends of the moment, without being trendy. It's unique but stylish, and fits her perfectly.
But since I love it so much, (practically think it's the perfect name) I feel totally eh about other girl names. The formula for her name, feminine version of a male name, old fashioned, with a cute nickname, even a cute androgynous nickname is just about perfect for our style as well. But really, how many daughters can we have following that pattern? Two seems like too many, and I feel extra pressure with this name because it feels like setting our "family style" in stone.
Basically, I want to avoid another "boy" nickname, but want something that fits with Georgie, without being overshadowed. We don't even have much of a list! Here are some we like, but nothing we love yet.
Philippa (this is my frontrunner, with the nickname Pippa. Anyone want to weigh in on your thoughts with naming her the actually intended nickname vs. the full name? We never call Georgie by her full name.)
Louisa (I'm worried about it being shortened to Lou)
Elizabeth (so popular, but we like the nickname Betty--again, should we forget Elizabeth and just consider Betty?)
Really, I think I just haven't come across the perfect name yet. Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated!
