We need a name for our next bundle of joy.
Choosing a name is something we take very, very seriously. After all, it’s what said child will be called for the rest of her life.
We’ve been at it for months and have a few we like, but nothing we love.
I love Vivienne’s name. Amazingly, I stumbled upon it and fell in love with it before I realized someone insanely famous had just used that name for her daughter. But I loved it enough to overlook that, and I’m so glad I did. I fall in love with Vivienne’s name more and more all the time. Alas, I fall in love with her more and more all the time.
Our last name isn’t long, but it’s hard to pronounce. So we need to stick with a relatively easy to pronounce first name.
And I like flowing, romantic, old school names for my girls. At least 2 syllables if not three.
And we are trying to steer clear of popular names… my sweet Sophie is one of about 371 in her school.
And it cannot start with an S or an L. Or a G. Just because.
And nothing too unusual. Although I do love unusual names, I fear that if our daughter has a physical special need, she’ll already feel conspicuous, and might not want more attention drawn to herself by a name like Olive. Although I do love the name Olive.
And it has to have a meaning with purpose. Our son Dalton, although named after his father, isn’t crazy about the fact that his name means, “from the valley” when his brother Asher has a name that means “blessed and happy”. So a good, strong meaning is preferable.
So, are there any names left?
Help greatly appreciated.
