Sister name for Daphne
Hi everyone! I looove chatting about baby names and really like this site, so I was very excited to see these boards go up!
I have a DD and a baby on the way, due October. So I have quite a bit of time, but I'd love to get this settled and out of the way. For my first child, we had one girl name and one boy name picked out at 6 months preggo and we only had to think about middle names after that - much less stressful than first names!
Our names were:
Daphne Cecelia (it was a girl!)
Neither have any family name connections, we just liked them. For this next baby, if it's a boy I will happily use Leo (not totally sold on the middle name anymore though), but for a girl I need some ideas!
I like the idea of classic, kind of old-fashioned/vintage names that are NOT popular. Names like Olivia, Sophia, etc. would go perfectly with Daphne, but I just can't do it because they are too high on the popularity list.
So far we have ideas like: Hazel, Cara, Cora, Elyse, Iris, Elsa, Evette, Mae, Isla... I don't love any of them. If I had to choose right now, I guess it would be Hazel. I threw that out to my family this weekend and they actually all loved it, I was surprised! But it was nice to find that out. My husband likes it, so maybe it will grow on me?
Any suggestions for names would be greatly appreciated! Must not start with D, prefer not to start with K or A. And I don't want it to end in the same "ee" sound as Daphne. Picky much?
