Molly Lee in Virginia
We just found out we're having a baby boy, so we need help with a name. Our last name is Lee, which is a difficult name to work with. We'd love a J name somewhere in there, but middle name would be fine. Many thanks!
Baby Name Genie:
The only thing that makes Lee difficult is that it turns every first name into an adverb. But a carefully crafted name, like Justin Cameron, would be an excellent choice.
Ava in New York
Hi, can you give me a really unique name that'll go with a second name that is Nouvelle? I'd like it to be something that no one has ever heard of, but, likewise, a beautiful first name.
Baby Name Genie:
While I can't promise this name is wholly unique throughout the entire world, I do have a name for you that flows well and is, as far as my genie powers can tell, unique amongst English speakers. Your child shall be known as Olyvita Nouvelle. Pronounce is (Ah-leh-VEE-ta Noo-vell.)
Graceyn in Los Angeles
Name needed for our second baby girl! Must fit with the name of our 1st child, Aviator Graceyn. Airplane themed name maybe?
Baby Name Genie:
You've brought your concerns to a qualified genie. Some of my closest genie friends are avid flying carpet aviators. For a name that will really takeoff, I suggest you name your daughter Amelia Piper.
