In Response to Pronunciation???

Thx!  That's a great idea!  I'll definitely do that!

In Response to Pronunciation???

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.  :)

In Response to Pronunciation???

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.

In Response to Callan or Zephyr?

Of the 2, I prefer Callan.

In Response to Ike or Briggs?

I like Ike.  It makes me think of former US President Eisenhower.  When I see Briggs, I automatically think of the Briggs & Stratton engine.

In Response to Keir

I don't like this name.  I'm unsure of how to pronounce it, and it seems like a made up name to me.

In Response to Sol

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

In Response to This Is A Tough One..

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?

January 30, 2015 06:05 PM

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.

January 30, 2015 01:04 PM

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.  :)
