My mother's middle name is/was Ogima oh-gee-mah. The g isn't said like the letter but like the name Gabriella. I think it's pretty(her full name was Juliana Ogima) what do you think of it?

It's very unusual; I've never heard it before. But I really like it though, especially as a mn. And it is very pretty with Juliana.
I want to make sure I'm pronouncing it right, so is it stressed on the second syllable like oh-GEE-mah?
:D

I've never heard the name before!
It's not really my style, but it's a nice combination!

I do love Juliana though. :D
I think it's a stunning name! ♥

Julianna is a gorgeous name! Ogima is okay, I think it's nice, and sounds pretty with Julianna!

{Julie-Anna?} :)

I'm guessing that's wrong now though..
Right?

But remember, I'm saying it with a British accent..
So the pronunciation may sound different! ♥

Hahaha, I was saying it Jew-lee-ahn-ah myself! ;) I mean, the other pronunciation is pretty too! Haha, love it either way! :) But yeah, my automatic pronunciation of a name is the New Englanders way of saying names ;)

Oooh!
Is that not the Russian prn.?
That's cool. ;)

I have a little sister called Yuli.
It's pronounced the same, so Yoo-lee.
{Or Julie for you English speakers}.

I love Noelle btw. :)
I saw that was one of your other middle names?

It's stunning. ♥

Heheh.
I guessed. ;)

I quite like it, but I much prefer Julie myself.
Don't tell her I said that though. :)
-wink-

Your name is very different!
But it's very cool! ♥

Haha shhhh! And thanks, I don't mind my name, but I don't think I "look" like a LaCienega. Also, it has no good nicknames I can use! I loveee your name though! And its easy to pronounce;)

N'awh.
Thank you! :)

I think you look like a Noelle, personally. ;)

And I'm sure there's a nice nickname you could use!
Maybe.. Cici?
Hmm.

Or you could always go by one of your middle names!

Juliana has a load of nicknames!
And Elle or Ellie for Noelle is gorgeous {I think}.

But hey, it's the person that makes the name, not the other way around! ;)
I'm sure LaCienega fits you just fine. ♥

Haha sometimes Tito will call me CiCi! For a while back in 7th grade I went by Ali (from Alejandra) and wouldn't let anyone call me LaCienega. Its funny you mentioned Ellie, I am completely in love and obsessed with that name! And that's true I guess but if I had to name myself it would be Kayla

I love Ali {Allie/Ally}!
And I adore Ellie. I think it's stunning. :)
It's been considered for a bunch of different names!
{Elisabeth, Amelie, Eleanor, Annabel, Ariella, Penelope, Lorelai, Ella..}

PS. I keep forgetting to ask, how far along are you in your pregnancy? ;)
And congratulations!

If my little boy would have been a girl, his name would have been Yulia Ellie, Yulia after my mommy(:

And thank you, I'm 21 weeks (and 4 days to be spacific)!

N'awh.
I was going to suggest Yulia!
Until I saw you were expecting a boy. :)

What names are you considering?
I saw {And posted} on your thread, but I was wondering what your top contenders were!

And Kayla, Hahah!
I thought the same thing. ♥
