Bastian is cool. I prefer Sebastian/Sebastien and use the nn so he has a classy adult name to lean on later.

Willow is nice. nn Willa or just dont use a nn.

Milo is adorable, stylish, uncommon. dont pair willow and milo or they lose individuality.

I thought you meant would Allistair work for a girl and  I was going to give you props. Of you list Fiona is very nice, Adelaide is lovely but I wonder if it is becoming popular quickly. Sometimes names are only popular on naming forums and not in the places in which we live.

In Response to Lara and pronunciation

Lara - LA-RA easy. It's elegant and sexy. Tomb raider has engrained it in my mind as a strong willed, independant, stunning woman.

Fiona, Tobias and August are lovely. Pheobe sounds like a daft round faced girl who works in reception. 

Tobias nn Tobin. Gus is ugly, just don't use Gus.

Colette is so cute! Just be warned that actual French people will think it's annoyingly sweet, like how we would feel about a girl named Candy or Cindy-Lou (imagine a woman with a plaid shirt tied above her midrife with pigtails selling blueberry bpie int he south). My husband is from France and when I suggested this name he gave me this look of pity and patiently explained how the French feel about the names Cosette, Colette, Odette, Odelette, Claudette etc. 

But if you live somewehere far away from Quebec or Central Europe then you're good to go. And you knwo what? 'Haters gonna hate', Colette is a beautiful name. 


Colette Irene Plussel

Colette Audra Plussel

In Response to Fairytale Girls Names

Everliegh was on my list, but it sounds too much like Beverly. Arwen, Eden and Elowen were on the list for a bit too. And everyone says Ever sounds trashy (weeps)

Aurore and Aurora are nice, but I prefer the structure of aurelia and aurelie.  

DH won't let me use French words as names like Brie, Belle, Estelle...I liked Estoire unti he vetoed it. Haha I saw that English people were using Lunette as a girl's name, it means glasses in French :P

Thank you for taking the time to write this. Aurélia Vesper Scholze is up there on my list now. I took your advice and narrowed it down. It was really hard, I'm not sure how much shorter it really is.

Thanks for your input.

BTW my partner wants to name the baby Identity. Are your partners ever completely unhelpful in the naming process? 

I was particularily fond of the suggestion: Aurelie Echo Scholze 

Echo's mythological orgins are more then familiar to me.

I know what a lot of you mean about one word names that are better as middles then firsts.


What middle names would you give these firsts? Feel free to drop the Middle I suggested.

So my working shortlist is:

-nn = nickname for full name

<middle name posibilities>


Aurelie-nn Aurelia <Echo/Evraelle/Laila> Scholze

Elodie <Wonder/Lyra/Ambre> Scholze

Elora (full name Eloria?) Scholze

Ever-nn Evraelle <Lorelei> Scholze --Ever Lore Scholze

Story-nn Astoria Scholze

Story-nn Estoire Scholze

Colette Scholze

Odette Scholze

Eimirya <Fable> Scholze

Eveline Story Scholze

Lore-nn Lorelei Scholze


(Wolfgang was my opa/grandpa)

Gabriel (pronounced Jibrāʾīl at home) <Wolgang/Draven> Scholze

Tobin-nn Tobias Wolgang Scholze

Dorian Wolgang Scholze

Thaddeus Wolgang Scholze

Damon Wolgang Scholze

Aurelien Elvyn Scholze

Caspian Dryden Scholze

Thaddeus Valor Scholze

Lucien Scholze



Elliette is cute. 

Don't name your kid Harper. To harp on someone means to screech and shout. Also Harper is the last name of the Canadian Primeminister and he's really hated. Harper is a trend, and it isn't pretty. Avery and Livia are nice. Tatum doesn't flow. Isla is cute. 


Just not Harper.Dear god.

Brielle is beautiful when pronounced with a rolled R  - french accent. If you can't imagine it go ask a francaphone to pronounce it for you. Stunning name. Hailey is very commonplace and lacks the elegance of Brielle. 


Just ditch the middle name Sophia if you don't like the initials. Brielle Aven, Brielle Evette, Brielle Alette


Also consider Abrielle, Braelyn, Brynne, Brienne, Belle
