Please help with these names:


Bianca

Mietta

Naomi


DD1 is Natalie, bit worried is too similar to Naomi

Had Mietta picked for DD 1 but got cold feet about being too unusual, spelling and pronunciation problems


Thanks!

I would definitely go for Bianca with Natalie.

I'd definitely avoid Naomi and Natalie.

Definitely Bianca

Bianca

I have always loved Bianca so would go with that

I like mietta.  It's a little unusual but not a weird name.

#7 Prioritising Pooks

Bianca, definitely.

Guessing that you are Michaela, I would go with Bianca. I think Mietta would be too close.

Bianca - 100%

mietta is a beautiful name..it is strong but with a lovely sweetness to it. Not to uncommon but enough to not be bumping into many others. A lovely name young or old. Mimi could be a cute nn. It means pearl and little one.
Bianca is a lot more starc and harsher. Not cute little nns for it either. The meaning is white.  Mmm I don't why it doesn't have a nice ring to me.

I think I grew up with too many Biancas and it was pronounced Bee-anca or Bee-unca.  There is no other way to pronounce Mietta I don't think.  I think the sounding of names is important. I grew up with a sister who's name could be pronounced in many ways and found it so annoying, so did she.  Though that is just a quirk of mine wink.gif

Good luck for next week op

With Natalie, definitely Bianca.

Otherwise Naomi.

What about Bridget? Natalie and Bridget are great together.

I like Mietta best out of your options. It's fresh and a different in nice ways. I think it's a name people would get the hang of quickly.

Miette is another nice variation.

I'm not keen myself on Bianca or Naomi, but both are ok names if you love them, and I wouldn't worry myself about similarity of Naomi with Natalie.

I don't love Bianca so not Bianca.


I do love both Mietta and Naomi and would choose one of them.

I see nothing difficult about Mietta (comes from the same place as Bianca).

Hmmm, despite having a lovely friend Bianca I just don't really like it. I don't think Naomi is too close to Natalie, they both just start with N but otherwise quite different sounding and looking.
I really prefer unusual names but Mietta is not quite my style, however I could get used to it. My 2 DDs have unusual names and believe me, you have to justify it to everyone in the beginning but then it just becomes their name and everyone gets used to it. I think I slightly prefer Miette. Do you like Matisse? Natalie and Matisse would be super awesome.

Bianca goes well with Natalie,  Naomi is lovely too - perhaps a little close

Thanks for everyone's replies - looks like Bianca is winning out - DH is happy to go with either.

On the topic of nicknames - any suggestions for Bianca - My Mum's cat is called Binky so that one is out

Thanks again

Bee or Bix, pretty much the same as Beatrice? (Minus Bess/Betty which I've seen for Beatrice).

I adore Naomi but Bianca maybe goes with Natalie better.

Mietta is so sweet. I like it.

#23 vanessa71

I prefer Mietta from those three.


#24 Tyfle Hour

Bianca is one of my favourites, so definitely that one.  I  like ldd's suggestion of Bee as a nickname.

Posted 03 March 2013 - 03:04 PM

I love Naomi but I also love Bianca and think it works best with your DD's name.

so yay! Bianca

Binx is what I would go with for a nn for Bianca. But you could also call her Bee
