4th Baby on the Way!
Hi everyone! It seems like forever since I was last here looking for help to name my current youngest, Ir3ne Flor3ntina. This time around we are trying to honor my husband's mother or grandmother, Virginia and Adelaide Suzanne. Virginia is just not working for us because it feels too old and not in the cute endearing way like our kids' names and because it's too tied to the word "Virgin" and that feels a too religious and prim and proper to us. Therefor, it's Adelaide and Suzanne we've mostly been trying to work with.
Since Adelaide doesn't sound anywhere near as pretty in Portuguese as it is in English we've been considering Adelina lately. If Z3lia weren't our daughter's name I would say Adelia would be perfect, like Brazilian author Adélia Prado and the character of Vesuvia Adelia Aguilar from the "Art of Death" book series which I love... I just don't think we are that out of options that we can't find a name that doesn't rhyme with Z3lia, lol.
Suzanne is a name we like with a bit less enthusiasm. The Portuguese form is Susana or even Suzana, but it feels a bit dull and tame to me. We've been throwing around Lily names: Lilia, Lilian, and Liliana, but nothing that special, really.
Anyway, we have once again reached a naming dilemma and would appreciate some advice and suggestions!
