Sorry for the somewhat last minute email here, but we are in trouble! My husband and I are having our sixth daughter together next week, she is due November 5th. This is the first time we have found out the gender before birth, and I think it has made naming the poor mite even harder. Our main problem is choosing a first name which goes well with her sisters names.
Ottilie Fflur (aged 7 – sometimes goes by Tilly, her middle name is Welsh)
Adalia Seren (aged 6 – sometimes goes by Addie, her middle name is Welsh)
Cecily Roma ( aged 4 – born when we lived in Italy for a year, hence her middle name!)
Nolia Betsy (aged 21 months – Nole-ee-ah, English middle name)
Violet Lucina (aged 21 months – Vi-oh –LETT, English middle name)
Our names are, Logan James Brown and Emily Quinn Brown.
Some names we like, but are out:-
Aleydis – Not sure if I want to reuse initials though (Adalia)
Helena – (niece’s name)
Evangeline (my name is Emily – so I don’t really want to reuse the E)
As each of the girls has an L in the second half of her name I would quite like to do this again, to continue flow. But it is not crucial as long as the name sounds like one of the bunch! But we are quickly running out of names! As we have eliminated - A,B,O,N,C&V names for definite and maybe L and E names too! (B because hubby doesn't like alliteration - so Beatrice/Beatrix is gone)
Middle names:- ( Need to reflect the country of birth, this baby will be born in USA)
???? Really depends on the first name, preferably unusual
One name we are considering is Romilly Quinn Brown.
Sorry – for the long question, it really has become rather complicated naming her! Maybe we should go with Cecily’s suggestion of Bumblebee! Thanks
I think Romilly Quinn takes care of all your requirements. I hesitate only because it adds another "lee" sound, when already four of the five girls (and you) have that sound. Do you pronounce Ottilie as Ah-TILL-ee-ah or AH-till-lee? If the latter, Romilly seems rhymey; if the former, it's a worry only if you might call her Milly and would rather not have a Tilly and a Milly.
Juliette (too rhymey with Violet?)
If E isn't out after all, I suggest Elodie. If L isn't out after all, I suggest Lorelei.
