Amahli is OK.  I wouldn't put Acie on the birth certificate. It's too cute visually and very fairy floss.  

Amalia is gorgeous and then you could use shortening as NN.   Ace isn't my style but there's nothing wrong with it.

I prefer Ace over Acie. I love Ace for a boy!

Amahli I feel is incomplete as a name. Amahlia (or however it's spelt) is better IMO, though I'm not a fan of either.

Either way, nothing wrong with either name you like.

Acie for a boy - I'm used to Ace being short for Alexander, which I really like. Acer is also the family maple trees are in and my hippie parents obviously left enough in the back of my brain that I sort of like that as a name.

Amahli suffers for me. I would prefer Amy or Emily, or Mahalia.

I like Amahli & I like Ace, not Acie.

I don't mind Amahli, but I'm not too keen on Acie.

Neither are appealing to me.

I don't like either of them.

Thanks for your thoughts! I don't know why, but there is something about Acie that I like. Can anyone offer any variants to Acie? Not Ace though, I'm not too keen on the one syllable for some reason.

NN Acie could go for:

Mason
Casey
Jason
Pacey
Wason
Wallace
Amos

Not keen on either name.

If I wanted to call him Acie I would call him A.C. but my husband assures me calling boys by their initials is "terribly American."

I still think Alexander Cole or August Casey (or Acie from Casey works too...?) or any number of AC names sounds reasonable.

I did grow up knowing an AW, a JR, two JPs, an EJ, and too many AJs to count though. So perhaps I'm skewed. original.gif

I think that initials as names thing is much more done in America than here - its hardly ever done here that I know of.


Amahli isnt quite my style of name but dont mind it - Acie just doesnt seem like a proper name to me - you could use Archie, thats similar, although Im not a fan of it either myself.
