This thread has been hacked by her husband...

You all make a valid point, calling her "Queen" might be a little heavy-handed.  ;)

In Response to Hester: disaster?

I appreciate this explanation. :)

Good point!  This is exactly the question I posed to him last night. The answer was he would use her full name.  When I pressed at how likely that would be he said to just wait till she is born for us to figure it out.  Which is fine by me.  Not too much longer to go! :)  

I also need him to read this full thread when he has a minute. That should help also.

LOL!  Yes, exactly! I had this conversatin last night with my husband. I actually said to him, "Do you really want to name a child Queen?"  That will certainly not go over well. He is still not convinved. Oh well. We decided to table it, until she is born. 


Thanks for the nickname ideas. I am hoping that we can stear away from all nicknames and use the full name since it is so lovely.  Some things you can't help though.

I spoke with my husband and he still wants to stick with Reina Genevieve because he likes how it sounds together.

November 9, 2015 02:19 PM

Yes, I love it too! I am not 100% sure yet because I am wondering if it is too close to Jennifer and people will want to call her her Genny.  Plus, I am just one that likes to meet the child before I really KNOW if the name we like IS her name.

Yes, I am caught up in the details. I am a name nerd! LOL   How can I not?


Hubby likes to point out that Reina Genevieve just flows off the tongue along with Esther Genevieve. I think he is the one that has the flow issues. LOL. I will have to have him read this thread.

All your thoughts are great. Thanks so much!

That's exactly how I feel. I have never understood the idea of caliing someone by their middle name. It's very confusinng. Now, that I am in that position, I don't really want to go against that.


The name we want to call her is Genevieve. (90% sure) 

The names we want to use to honor is either Reina or Esther.  I prefer Reina but Esther flows better.  

Thoughts? :)

In Response to She's here.

Such a pretty name. Congratulations!

I didn't find it difficult in the beginning.  Boys are pretty easy for us to name as we have a distintive taste that narrows it down pretty easily.  Girls are harder for us because the pool of names is so much bigger. I am also finding that that the name nerd inside of me gets in the way.  They all need to sound good together but not be to similar. Then it needs to have a nice meaning, ect.  

Right now we need to decided on a name for a little girl and I am a bit overwhlemed by how many names we actually like.  Some would think it was the opposite.  I decided to just table it until she is born and hopefully it will be easier when we see her.

I find this so interesting. How neat you still have that spreadsheet today. I would love to see the names you put on it.

July 21, 2015 06:36 PM

Thank you everyone! I think we have a short list ready.  I appreciate all of you help. :)

July 21, 2015 02:22 PM

wow. I agree wtih you. It does seem like it would be the least month to be used. I bet there is a good story behind the name.  Hopefully you can get to know them and be able to ask in a tackful way.  That is always the tricky part.

Are they native English speakers? 

July 21, 2015 02:20 PM

What the above two said. I would also like to add that if you don't see her that often I don't feel it's a big deal.  As long as you talk to her about it first, I'm sure it will work itself out..

July 21, 2015 08:40 AM

Oh...I like Isette at first but then realized I want to stay away from "Is" combinations.  

I have been thinking about Marina.  I really, really like it. In fact I was about to add it to our list when it hit me. The REASON I like it is because it rhymes with Ser3ena.  (Face to palm)

July 21, 2015 08:38 AM

Hi. My name is not Faith but I do like it.  We have already used Joy in our houshold.  Mercy is taken outside the house too. Vivienne is one of those names I like but not for my duaghter. I am not sure but I think it has a negative connotation for me.  I like Marit.  Actually, I really like it. I may run it by the hubby later. Thanks!

Thanks for the encouragment for Genevieve. It's good to know that it's not an automative nick name for it.

Do you think it brings the name Jennifer to mind and so it makes it to over used just with that association?

July 20, 2015 09:24 PM

Jillmom- Thanks. I know the parameters are hard. Many of the names I like myself aren't in the parameters. Like the name Amirah.


All the names you listed are nice. Liesel is the one I like the most, but probably because it can be a derivative of the name Anneliese.  I like Laurel a lot too, but I still think it's too close to 3liora. They both have the L and R. :)

Genevieve is a name that keeps popping up.  I keep seeing it everywhere. Not on babies or children, but in print.  I like saying it too.  I am concerned about the Gen part being so close to the name Jennifer.  I don't want her called Gen.  Also, I noticed it is rising in numbers steadily in teh last 10 years.  I am worried it is going to get very popular in the next few years.

Feel free to calm my concerns. :)
