Think we may have a boys name- but since we are not finding out need some girls names


What is the correct pronounciation of:

-Aurelia

-Aurellia


I also like Aurora (but all my other children have an E and an A in there name so would like to keep that up unless I found something perfect)...

DD has a older/classic style name- has only sat on the edge of the top 100 - 3 times in the last 10yrs...

My 3 boys all have different names...

So for a girl I want to find something pretty- not made up- not to different - but not top 100... oh and hopefully with an A & E in it....

I pronounce it 'aw-ray-lee-ah'. Not sure if I'm right though.

How about Alessia to fit in your theme?

ow-RE-lyah, but I don't know if that's right either.

I love Aurora way more.

Names with A and E in them, some pretty normal and some pretty weird (but I like all of these):

Mae/Maeve, Jane, Clare/Claire, Hazel, Yael, Leah, Azalea, Evangeline, Leora, Eliana, Beatrix, Reina, Xanthe.

Did you know Jane is ranked in the low five hundreds of popularity in NSW? Neither did I, I just looked it up to make sure it was out of the top 100, which I was pretty sure it was but I couldn't believe it was that rare.

I would have said "aw-REEL-ee-ah" - in my head that's the Love, Actually pronounciation. Pretty name!

As an alternative, how about Erica?

Like PP I have the love actually pronunciation in my head.

Lovely name.

Artemisia is my loved unused name.

I would go with the Love Actually pronunciation too.
I love the name!

In Aus it is said Awe-ray-lee-ah and Oh-ray-lee-ah. But, if you don't know how to say it why would you want to use it??

In europe it changes depending on the country you are in/are from.
Keep in mind a mean nickname for it is Areola. I know because I have a gf Aurelia and she was teased with it in PS.

I'd use Aurora and forget your "letter rules".  I just had to give up all having an "I" in our names for DD3 - it is worth it!!

Or what about Arielle?

How about:

I like PP's mention of Arielle for a girl. Ariel is boyish to me. It's a bit Gabriel/Gabrielle in that regard.

Ariella is pretty too.

I do very much like Annabel.

I'm not a fan of the 'ray' pronunciation in English.  It sounds like a failed attempt at the European.

I love the English 'ree' one.

Ariella
Adelia
Eliana
Elettra
Eulalie/Eulalia
Eugenia
Esperanza
Euphemia

I love the name Aurelia. I pronounce it Aw-reel-i-a (or Aw-reel-ya if saying it fast).

Its more that I know how I pronounce it- but wasnt 100% sure if that was correct or not..


Arielle is another name I like although I dont think it suits DD name/seems a bit more of a modern name (correct me if I am wrong)

The name I am trying to push DH for is Adelaide - he says no way- (its mine & DD middle name also) I actually asked him if I could just swap DD's 1st and middle name around if this one is pink... or if not hers my 1st & middle name around...

Anyway the way I "thought' you pronounced it was

Or-rill-leah
or
awe-ree-lee-ah


I wonder if it will be one of those names I would have to always correct pronounciation...  

Also my only concern about Adelaide is our surname is an american place name.... so 2 place names? and as I said its mine & DD's middle name

Arielle is a feminine form of an "angel" name. It's a bit like Raphaela/Gabrielle (which have gone mainstream) and Katriela and Raziela, which never have. I wouldn't say its new, really.
