1. Catalina
I am starting to love Catalina! It used to really bother me because of an association, but I'm getting over it. WDYT?

2. Guinevere
Is it too out there? Its known from King Arthur and the nights of the round table... And I am loving the nick name Gwen! Or maybe even Evie, from the middle and all... but too weird, or an underused beauty? <3

3. Alice
I can't seem to find a good middle name for Alice :/ Any idea's?

4. Cayla // Kayla
Is Cayla an okay spelling for Kayla? I prefer C's to K's generally, and I think it looks softer and sweeter.

Catalina: I like it. :) I think it has a ton of nickname potential, and the full name is sweet as well.
Guinevere: I LOVE this name. :wub: I think it is way underused. The only thing I don't like about it, is (for me anyway.) it's difficult to spell. I usually have to think about it for a minute before I get it written right.
Alice: I love Alice as well! I have it on my list. But I found middle names really hard too, it took me quite a long time to find one I liked.
Cayla/Kayla: Personally, Kayla/Cayla is not my style. But I think it fits well in your style. I think Cayla works better for your names, and I agree it sounds/looks softer.

:)

Catalina is a wonderful name, very much like a princess! I think it's absolutely beautiful!

Guinevere I was actually thinking about adding this name to my list. I'm not going to, but it's very very lovely!

Alice Isn't quite my style.

Cayla | Kayla I don't like the name Kayla...I guess it's not my style.

Thanks for the replies!!! :)

Catalina is so princessy!! And lots of beautiful nick name potential :) I love Cat, Catie, Lina... <3 my bff Celina could even technically be honored through this name!!

I've had Guinevere as a guilty pleasure name on my lisy for so long... Its really started growing on me!!! Ive been spelling it out a lot lately, so the spelling has grown on me... But I can see how others would have a problem with it :/

Alice is just one of those names that are difficult to find a middle name for! :/ im thinking of Alice nick name Liss though, cause I adore Liss/Lissa and have been looking for a Liss name that could work! When i look at it, it almost looks... Bland. But when i say it out loud... <3333

I know Mike adores Kayla, so i definitely want to keep it in my thoughts for him. But I think I could really start loving Cayla <3 i know a few Kayla's that make the name less lovable, but it does sound nice... And i love the nick name Kay Kay, or Cay Cay i suppose. Its almost dated like Nicole or Heather, but i still like it :wub:


Again, thanks so much!!!

1. Catalina
Love it :) It's so underused but so beautiful.
2. Guinevere
Hmm, I'm not a fan. I can ONLY associate it with King Arthur (and the tv show Merlin).
3. Alice
Alice Josephine, Alice Jolie, Alice Kate, Alice Sadie, Alice Ophelia, Alice Imogen.
4. Cayla // Kayla
I prefer C's too!! I like this spelling. It's pretty

C

1. Catalina
I saw it on nymbler a couple of years ago, it's not my style, but it's very pretty! Sounds like the name of a princess {It's the name of fictional Princess, Catalina of Spain}. But it has that frilly quality that Arianna, Rosalinda and Elisabetta have.
Ton of nickname options too! {Cat, Catie, Cate, Tali, Allie, Lina etc}

2. Guinevere
You know that I love this one! And I adore the nicknames Gwen, Neve, Evie or Vera. ♥ It's just so understated!

3. Alice
I adore Alice, but I've found it hard to find a middle or first name I REALLY like for it. I currently have Alice Margot. :)
I've had Phoebe Alice, Meredith Alice and Nora Alice in the past, as well as Katherine Alice and Vivian Alice. It's such an elegant and pretty name. And there's something about how it looks that I love also.

4. Cayla // Kayla
This is my least favourite of all the names on this list. It just doesn't fit the style at all, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. But I do have a personal distaste for this name. It's just too... "trendy" for me? Cayla reminds me of "Caylee Anthony". But I agree that it looks softer and prettier with a C.


Instead of Cayla/Kayla, what about Carolina, Calla, Catrina, Cadence, Caterine, Carolyn, Carissa, Christiana, Celia,
Celeste, Clara, Cecily, Corinne, Cordelia, Clover, Christianne, Cecelia, Claire, Charlotte, Callie, Cosette, Cleo,
Carys, Caia, Caitlin, Calista, Cara, Colleen, Chloe, Carina, Cassia, Caroline, Camille, Cora, Constance, Coral,
Krista, Keira, Isla, Layla, Lola, Lana, Lila, Ava, Adela, Haley, Mila or Michaela?

Thanks girls!! I love Rosalind and Elisabetta as well, actually! Seems the frilly princessy names are all coming onto my list!! I love how it has all those nick name options too<3 Cat, Catie, etc are all so pretty!!!

Guinevere kind of does remind me of King Arthur, but I suppose it doesn't bother me. But I agree Yas! Totally understated <3 I can't decide if I love Gwen or Evie more as a nick name!! Neve and Vera are beautiful as well.. but Gwen and Evie are definitely my favs! Now I just need a good middle name for it...

Alice Kate, Alice Ophelia, Phoebe Alice, Katherine Alice, and Vivian Alice are all lovely! Currently I'm thinking Alice to be a first name... but I suppose it'd make a great middle name as well! <3 I love how elegant and pretty Alice is! Hmm, maybe I could even do Guinevere Alice or Alice Guinevere. Though that'd mean I can't have both as first names.. lol<3 decisions, decisions! Maybe Alice Guinevere would be best, seeing as my last name // Mike's last name is really long. So it would be quite a mouthful of a name for Guinevere to be a first name :)

I agree, Cayla is trendy :/ But Mike loves it, so I'm not quite going to veto it... I think I could maybe get used to it as a middle name. Darn, I never would have associated Caylee Anthony with Cayla, but now that its been brought up.. :) Grr!! Oh well, hopefully by the time I have kids the association will be forgotten <3 Or, maybe Mike can just agree to my names as they are clearly awesome :wub: lol! He does love Eloise and Piper and all.... so just maybe!! <3

Catalina;
Beautiful name, reminds me of Catalina Island just off Los Angeles though! But still, such a lovely name.

Guinevere;
It's not my cup of tea, it is a little different.. but the nickname Evie is cute.

Alice;
Pretty! Alice Catalina would be lovely if you wanted to use Catalina as a middle name.

Cayla/Kayla;
My fav from this list. My cousin's name is Cayla and I think the 'C' spelling is a little less common and simply stunning. I would go with Cayla. :wub:
