I've been thinking lots about names, not necessarily my favorites but names none the less. And I am liking these combo's, WDYT?

Alice Bailey
Bailey Caroline
Bailey Victoria
Indie Victoria
Harriet Charlize "Hattie"
Hallie Evangeline
Delilah Harper
Dolores Eden "Lo"


For boys... I have been thinking about Cato. I really, really love it lately!! Not only from The Hunger Games, but also just because of how it sounds! However, I have found that any names with a D in them sound really bad with Mikes last name, which has a D at the beginning. And Cato has the T that sounds like a D. So said together it sounds like do do like the do do bird :) So sad! </3 I'm keeping it on My List anyways, cause I do like it. And I plan to find a middle name for it. [and yes, I might take Dylan off Our List. I just hate how it sounds with the last name!].

I'd love opinions and suggestions! Thanks! :(

I like your new names!

Alice Bailey - Lovely. I like the pairing of the sophisticated Alice and the spunky Bailey.
Bailey Caroline - Adorable!! Love it.
Bailey Victoria - Also really lovely.
Indie Victoria - Really cute. Do you like India with the nickname Indie? Or Indigo?
Harriet Charlize "Hattie" - I love Harriet with the nickname Hattie... definitely a guilty pleasure. :)
Hallie Evangeline - Ooh, love Hallie!
Delilah Harper - This is a great combo. The flow is perfect.
Dolores Eden "Lo" - Dolores isn't really my style, but Eden compliments it nicely and Lo is a cute nickname.

As for Cato... I can understand the appeal, haha! It can always be a guilty pleasure... or maybe you can name a pet Cato or something. Here are some middle name ideas:

Cato Anthony
Cato Benjamin
Cato Felix
Cato Frederick
Cato Marcus
Cato Patrick
Cato Solomon
Cato Riley
Cato David
Cato Nathaniel
Cato Elliot
Cato Maxwell
Cato Wyatt
Cato William
Cato Richard
Cato Sawyer
Cato Thomas
Cato Jeffrey
Cato Bentley
Cato Logan
Cato Henry
Cato Hudson
Cato Greyson
Cato Zachary

Good luck!

Alice Bailey--I love Alice, and I like Bailey, especially spelled this way, but Bailey as middle name sounds more like a last name
Bailey Caroline--cute
Bailey Victoria--I like this one a lot because Victoria is a very feminine name so it balances out the unisex name of Bailey a lot
Indie Victoria--I like Indie better for a boy
Harriet Charlize "Hattie"--Hattie is so cute, but that's about the only part of this name I like, sorry!
Hallie Evangeline--cute cute cute. You've got the cutsie name paired with the elegant proper name and it works beautifully.
Delilah Harper--not a huge fan of Delilah, but this combo works well
Dolores Eden "Lo"--Don't like Dolores, but Lo is adorable. I've always loved Eden too

As for Cato--I think of the Roman politicians, Cato the Elder and Cato the Younger lol (Latin nerd here). Used nowadays, I think it would be much too "celebrity" for me, for lack of a better term. It's not a horrible name, per se, but I wouldn't use it irl, sorry!

I love love love Indie Victoria.
Indie Elisabeth is also nice if you're liking a traditional middle name. :)

Hallie Evangeline and Delilah Harper are the other two combos I like.
Alice, Harriet and Eden I love, but not in their respective combinations.

ALSO, if you're liking "Lo", there's also Florence, Lorelei, Elodie, Lenore, Lorraine, Eloise, Carlotta etc.


Mm. Cato is more of a guilty pleasure name for me.
And I see what you mean about it with Mike's last name...

Thanks Meghan! I feel exactly the same about Alice Bailey :( Alice is so sophisticated and old fashioned but Bailey feels like it brings it up to date and adds some spunk! I like India or Indigo, but not quite as much <3 India feels to place name for me to use, though its a maybe! And Indigo... feels almost too unique to me? I'm not sure! Maybe Cato can be a pet name though! I love these combinations <3
Cato Anthony
Cato Riley
Cato Elliot
Cato Maxwell
Cato William
Cato Bentley
Cato Logan
Cato Henry
Cato Greyson
Cato Zachary


Thanks Brittany!! ;) Hmm, Bailey Alice is also a though!! Hmm, your right on Delilah Harper! Ah-ha! lol. Oh well... I do love Harper! I like Dolores mainly for the nick name Lo, to be honest. I'm not sure on another fuller name for Lo that I like. I love Logan, but only on a boy [and Mike veto'd it from Our List, so it'd have to be a My List only :l]. Lola isn't my style. Though, Harlow just came to mind and I'm loving it now!!! Harlow Eden could be real lovely! Now added to list!! <3

Thankie Rose!!! <3 I didn't notice that! Bailey as a middle does seem last namey :l Hmm.. I never thought much of Indie on a boy! Though it makes me think of Indigo in the Permanent Rose book :) I liked that book <3 But that Indigo was never called Indie, so maybe thats why I didn't think much of Indie on a boy. Thanks! Thats exactly what I see in Hallie Evangeline :) <3 Hehe, yeah when I first heard Cato I thought of Cato the Elder and Roman Politicians and all :') But I watched my bff [also a latin nerd ;)] do her homework every night sooooo :) I wont be able to ever use it in real life anyways, but its fun guilty pleasure! <3

Thank you Yas!!! Omg I loooove Indie Elisabeth!! <3 Gooooorgeous! I like Elodie, Lenore, and Eloise for Lo names! :)


Thank you all so much ladies!!! I appreciate it so much ! :)

Haha yes I obviously love those books. And Indigo did actually go by Indy occasionally, which I do think is why it's all boy to me. Also, Indiana Jones goes by Indy. I suppose Indie could be a more feminine spelling of it, but I really do just prefer it on a boy :]
