Advice on my top 3 girls names badly needed
I'm now pregnant with my second child - a surprise!
Trying to find the one, again, especially with girls names, is difficult. All we have is a bunch of names we tossed out last time, deeming them unsuitable because of one flaw or another.
I've managed to get it down to Cordelia, Aurora and Evangeline.
My husband didn't fall for Cordelia because it was too hard sounding. Cord reminded him of diy or craft material. But I think its growing on him...
Aurora was our favourite until we looked at it with our last name Morrison. Ror and Mor almost in succession was a bit too much rhyme/tongue tripping teasing ammunition. Unless I'm imagining it? I still love this name.
Evangeline got rejected last time because I was concerned about foisting my religious beliefs onto a child... but then again there must be Atheists named Grace, Mary, and even Faith! The second worry was on how popular Evelyn, Evie, Eva are... We'd like to eventually use the nickname Eve/Eva or Evie. But then again our first child's nickname is also a very popular nickname too, so at least they'd be similar in this way, though completely different. Its so memorable though... Ever since I saw Lost and found out Kate's real name, I have loved this name. Third worry, my friend (not close) has a daughter the same age as my first, called Evelyn nn Evie. We're in a mummy group together. I would worry people would think I was a) unoriginal, b) copying, c) trying to one-up her with an extra-long Evie name. Help! What do you think?
