Need a few fresh ideas for Girl names
Expecting #2 in about 7 months, so we have lots of time and still working a girls and boys list, doing better with boys names atm though. Just starting to feel some girls name exhaustion. The suggestions from the algorithms always seem way off for me and I will admit to being pretty unpredictable in my naming likes and dislikes.
DD is Georgette (Georgie) and I would want another daughter to similarly have a formal (prob longish) first name with a variety of nn options. I also would not want to repeat the -ie sound with a full or a nickname (its not a hard rule but a strong preference- I know that eliminates a lot though).
I have loved Talullah for so long, but DH *hates* it- won't budge.
Only girl name we are both feeling ok/good about is Louisa- but I would want nn Lilou and he is not sold. I like that it has nn options of Lilou, Lulu, and Lula.
I think Geneva is one we both like (I *love* the possibility of nn Eva!) But that makes the initial G a "thing" and I don't feel great about that. I actually wish that one had come up last time- we might have gone with that- especially now that I know that its a family name that I almost was given.
He likes Alexandra (a strong no for me) and Genevieve (I don't hate it, though it is very "poodle" to me, and again with the G thing, and nn issues, and that would also solidify a french theme), oh and Coraline (I like Coraline ok, but not Cora).
I have been so impressed with the name knowledge on this site- I am wondering if this is enough for you guys to maybe give me a few suggestions to help inspire me :) Thanks!
