We're having the hardest time coming up with a name for our second daughter, and I'm hoping that some outside opinions will help us narrow down the field!
Daughter is named Rose, and we tend to like shorter names. We're avoiding any kind of botanical theme, or at least ones that would be obvious, like Violet, Lilly, etc. I like names that sound delicate and feminine. We both fell in love with the idea of naming her Belle, but decided that it would sound too similiar to Bella, and result in people misremembering her name all the time. Would love to hear if others agree with that one.
I would like a name that isn't super popular, but that isn't a deal breaker. Something that isn't too old-fashioned sounding, to me Rose isn't old-fashioned sounding but kind of timeless. I love her name, and we get compliments on it all the time, and I'd like that to be the case for #2's name as well. Ideally I like a name that is not commonly used, but doesn't sound like an 'exotic' name. I'm also a big fan of names like Rose or Grace or May, names that have a meaning to them, but are so familiar as names it doesn't stick out, the way Justice, or Honor, might..
Right now, I really like Mia (super popular name, I know, but I love the sound), Julia, Evelyn, Elle, Grace, Belle. If anyone could help me, especially with a name that has a similar feeling to Mia (to me, a cute name that also will be sophisticated when older, and breezy and fun) I would be so appreciative! I actually keep still calling the baby Belle in my mind, but I really feel like it would be annoying to be named Belle when you are in a world of Bella's.
