In Response to L names galore

Thank you for the responses so far. 

I have gone off using Lotus for the reason there is a car manufacturer using the name Lotus.

Lux is a girls and boys name so can be used for either.

Liselle I have found is to princessey for my taste.

Lani is the clear winner for me I think. At least for now unless I find another L name.

In Response to Help with middle name

Lucy is part of my name. I love it.

For your middle name I like Marie best out of the options you are considering. Rose feels like a filler name for your generation. I know so many people with the middle name Rose in their twenties. Like someone else pointed out Anne seems to much like one name with Lucy. 

I think both Iris, Esme and Faye are usable for you as they are all names with history. I would avoid Seren though. 

My favourite combination out of all the names you listed is Lucy Iris.

My favourite combination is Rosamel Romilly Elinor or just Rosamel Romilly.

From your list I love Kai and Ari. However as others  have stated I would avoid Kai for repeating initials if nothing else. Ari is great. Works well with Max and Koa. Plus I love the fact if you used Ari that all the boys would have 3 lettered names. This of course is not a reason to use Ari. You need to love the name you end up choosing. 

Some suggestions... Asa, Cai (different spelling to Kai but gives each boy there own initial), Eli, Ike, Ira, Lee, Leo, Luc, Rex, Sol, Zen.

Others... Finn, Axel, Quinn, Liam, Drew, Rhys, Reese, Cruz, Cade, Cole, Levi, Zane, Luca, Kian, Jude, Noel, Oscar, Nico, Luke, Jake, Rocco, Ivan, Jett, Riley, Drake.

I love the names Ava and Lauren.

I love the idea of linking the twins with their names in a subtle way. 

A few combinations I love are...

Ava Marie and Lauren Mae - They both would share the M initial in the middle name spot but at the same time have their own initial for their first name.

Ava Christine and Lauren Charlotte - Same as above except with the C initial instead of M.

Ava Christine and Lauren Danielle - This is a more subtle way of linking them together, both Christine and Danielle are feminine forms of boy names so they work well together.

Ava Olivia and Lauren Mae - Gives each girl a six letter and three letter name.

Other combinations I just like are...

Ava Elizabeth and Lauren Charlotte - Works well the other way round as well.

In Response to Ideas for a sibling

I love your sons name. 

I don't really like Eliza but I can see it's appeal. I don't think people will mishear the name as Liza unless they have hearing problems. 

I love the name Nora. It is a classic name with no potential for nicknames (at least nicknames that can be used to shorten the name). It may be popular but don't let popularity deter you from using the name you love. 

Again I love Violet. The nickname Vi probably would be used a lot so you would need to love the Vi nickname as well to use Violet I believe. 

Again I love the name Alice but with the spelling Alys. If you aren't sure about the name then nix it. 

Henry is extremely popular and way more fusty in my opinion then the name Leo which sounds fun to me. This is just my impression so take with a grain of salt. Despite the popularity I do like Henry.

I love Milo. I don't think the repeated O ending is a deal breaker, in fact I think they go well together. You shouldn't rule out a name just because they share a repeated ending. Would you rule out Eliza if you had a daughter already named Anna? However I would say using Leo has ruled out Theo as their pronounciations are way to similar. Hugo is the same as Milo.

Oscar is a nice name. Different ending to Leo which I think your looking for. I didn't know about Oscar the grouch so had to look it up. However I wouldn't let that deter you from using the name. Same with the dogs called Oscar. Your child will be around for far longer then the dogs ever will be. 

I feel like Archer is an outlier on your list. I don't think it has much history as the other names on your list. Plus if your DH has never been on board I would cross it off the list anyway.

I have never liked the name Malcolm particularly because I have never liked the nickname Mal or Malcolm in the middle tv series. If your DH didn't like the name, then again cross it off the list. It is important that both of you love the name you end up using.

I quite like Yola. It isn't a name I have heard before but I like the fact it has meaning to you and it's an honour name. I say if you like it go for it. 

For the middle name I like Yola Eugenia best followed by Yola Sabrina.

In Response to A sister for Astrid

First I want to say I love the name Astrid and have added it to my own list. 

My favourite from your list is Ilse but I am concerned with pronounciation issues. Same with Tilde, maybe use Tilda like others have suggested?  Thea is the name I would choose from your list just because I find it easiest to pronounce and spell.

July 8, 2017 11:22 PM

Now I am wondering if you could suggest some names with two syllables ending in A?

July 8, 2017 11:15 PM

Thank you for all your suggestions. I have added quite a few to the list.

July 8, 2017 11:12 PM

Love the name Mina but I am concerned any child with the name would be teaser Mina meaner.

July 8, 2017 11:12 PM

Thank you for all your suggestions. I have added Celeste, Cerys, Emmy, Ivy, Libby, Lexie, Phoebe, Sylvie and Tamsin to my list. 

July 8, 2017 11:10 PM

I have now used these tools and found quite a few names I like. Thank you.

In Response to Baby Girl Name Help!!

Out of the two names I like Aurelia Ann the most. However I would spell Ann as Anne. I do like the suggestion of Aurelia Natalie as well. 

What you need to decide is which name would you feel more upset about not using. Either Aurelia or Natalie then go from there.


Part of my name is Lora. I pronounce Lora and Laura the same. I live in the UK like you. Everyone I have met in life has pronounced my name correctly. Sometimes they spelling wrong but that only needs a quick correction.

In Response to Yay Or Nay??

Though I prefer names with history for the most part, I actually like Livian. It reminds me of Livia and Vivian.

Elizabeth as stated above is a classic name that works well with Livian.

In Response to Name Change Opinions

Out of the options I like Augusta or Augustina best. Good luck.

In Response to I chose a name!

I don't like Ramsey as a name as I used to live in a place called Ramsey so to me it is a place name. Rowan on the other hand I really like.

July 1, 2017 02:40 PM

What are these names for? Future children? Pets? Story characters? Depending on what the names are for results in what names I like.
