Hey everyone,


Wondering if you could help me think of some names for girls that dont end in a vowel sound...like Charlie, Ava, Ella, Mia, Leila etc (altho I have nothing against them, our surname doesnt co-operate 100%!)

So far i havent been able to think of very many I like. Im not into traditional old school names like Margaret, however I am a fan of some older style names that are making a come back, so we're after something a little different but not too wierd. Thus far all i have is Fern and Celeste...


Also, i have no idea if bubs #2 is even a girl but since we are having so much trouble picking something it would be Murphy's law right!? wink.gif

Anything you can think of would be greatly appreciated! tthumbs.gif

Cheers,

Wow thank you everyone! you are clearly way better at this than i am!! rolleyes.gif

Really liking Morgan, Grace (possible MN) Violet, Claire - Adore Edith might need to work on DH to get that one tho! Pearl is my super cute puppy dog so thats taken already! tongue.gif

I have been in love with Willow forever but i have "Will" in my surname so it would be too "willy" if you know what i mean! lol.
Is Reiss pronounced Reece? or have i missed that one completely?


Also how popular do you think Niamh is - and do you think is a big no no to spell it Neve?

Thanks again! tthumbs.gif

#11 la di dah

Posted 10 April 2012 - 01:33 PM

I think Niamh is known but not popular. I really like it.

Maybe this is just me, I wouldn't be sure if I read Neve whether it was said like Niamh or the way Neve Campbell says it.

I have to correct people about my name all the time and it's okay. I think people are becoming more familiar with Gaelic names if that's any comfort.

Personally, I think Niamh is really, really pretty. My husband is Irish-descended Australian, and he loves it. My family, however, isn't Irish at all or very familiar with Gaelic and my dad's reaction to "Niamh" and "Aoife" was pretty funny when he first read them. He thinks Niamh should be spelt Ziamh, that way "it's at least consistent that none of the letters in it written are in how it's said. Having that one N there is just confusing. Turn it sideways."  laugh.gif

I love it as a middle name. I tend to like one-syllable middle names anyway and I just find it a refreshing alternative to Rose/Grace (a default that was in previous generations Ann/Lynn judging by my family...).

I also like Maeve for that but I think Maeve is also a more user-friendly first name.

Thanks Kerilyntaryn, but I kind of prefer Beth stand alone...particularly if you plan on calling them the short version anyways - but you have come up with some names i had never heard of, so thank you!



Is Carys and Cerys pronounced the same? - im really not very good at this! original.gif
