Thx! That's a great idea! I'll definitely do that!
Cool! Thx for the info! I'm leaning towards the Lih-NAY-uh pronunciation just because most US people pronounce it that way. Thinking of Riley as middle name. :)
I'm liking the name because it's a flower name that isn't common. Our other daughter's name is also a rare flower name.
oops...I meant Nordic..
Of the 2, I prefer Callan.
I like Ike. It makes me think of former US President Eisenhower. When I see Briggs, I automatically think of the Briggs & Stratton engine.
I don't like this name. I'm unsure of how to pronounce it, and it seems like a made up name to me.
I like it as a nn for a longer name like Solon, Solomon, etc.
Seems you like names ending with n. So here are some suggestions: Galen, Ronan, Rowan, Ethan, Breckin, Camden, Grayson, Nolan, Peyton, Ivan, Gavin, Corbin, Carson, Warren, Simon, Damon, Barron, Darin.
Names with same pattern: Elena, Elenora, Emma, Sarah, Cara, Clara, Flora, Gloria, Isabella, Jenna, Martha, Nora, Olivia, Paula, Pamela, Vivianna, Zinnia
I am in favor of Julie's idea. I think it's a great way to honor both.
I prefer Emma over Emily, but either name is good. I like the suggestion of wearing the name of a week by ordering coffee to see what fits you better.
Of the other names you mention, I like Sarah with nn Sadie. It gives a fresh feel to it. Hannah & Megan are both meh to me, and definitely not better than your top 2 choices. So Sarah is the only alternate name I like.
The name Everett is pronounced differently based on where in the US you live. In the South, it is usually pronounced as 2 syllables. So unless it bothers you to correct people, I'd use it regardless of whether people pronounce it with 2 or 3 syllables. It's a great name, and I really like the nn of Rett for this name. BUT if the pronunciation is a deal breaker, you could always go with Everest.
I like the suggestion of using Ronan with nn Ronnie. I find it preferrable to Ronald, and unless you're a HP fan you will always get that reference which might be bothersome.
Ideas not on your list:
Sara / Sadie
Cornelia / Corrie
Just throwing it out there, but what about Bennett instead of Beckett?
Don't like Emmett with your daughter's name as they both have nn of Em. I agree with going with Everett with nn Rett. Or choose another name starting with a different vowel like Asa, Asher, Ari, Isaac, Ivan, Owen, Orsen, Oliver, Urban, Ulrich.
J - Jameson, Jude, Judson
B - Bennett, Breckin, Bryant, Byron
R - Reuben, Rhett, Ronan, Rowan
S - Spencer, Silas, Sullivan
I'm glad he likes Hendrix. I think it's a good fit with Marley. If you use it, I doubt you will have people say "Marley, like the dog?" because Hendrix will automatically give Bob Marley reference which I'm sure your daughter will appreciate. Plus with screen name Jazzy, I thought music names would be right up your alley. :)
