Would it fit?
Posted 23 April 2008 - 02:13 PM
My point is this: how well would it "fit" with the rest of our girls, plus any potential boys we might have in between? At the moment it would be Sinéad Rebecca, Shelby Nicole, Victoire Chadée, and Mimi Rose Arlington. Sinéad, Shelby, Victoire and Mimi. If we do ever manage to have little boys, the first two would undoubtedly be named Jacoby Gavin (nn Jake) and Jericho Austin.
Since the name Emily means so much to me and I was determined to be using it for a future girl in the form of Helena Emily, I'm also wondering if maybe Mimi could serve as a nickname for Emily or some form of it, even though Josh is, as I said, really attached to Mimi Rose on its own. Do you guys have any opinions, suggestions, comments... anything?

Emily nn Mimi is really cute, she'll have a super popular first name with an unique nick name, I really like that. Though, Emily is not as "unique" as your daughters' names.
Congrats to your husband on finding a name he likes!

You could always steal Nana’s name in its entirety, too: use Emily Helena, but call her Mimi for short. I actually really like the idea of that. Only potential problem is that she would be the third Emily in this family for like, four generations and she’d technically have the same first name as you, even if you don’t use yours.
I’ve never ever heard of Mireille before, it‘s pretty! That really DOES sound gorgeous with Helena, too.
PS: I think this entire ordeal is why mom and daddy chose not to do the whole traditional-family-naming thing with me and the guys It’s confusing!

Of course, Emily “Mimi” Helena would mean that using my beloved Helena as a first name is out of the question I swear, to use all of the names that I love would mean Josh and I having dozens of kids… literally… but I know a lot of you guys feel the same way, so that’s okay

Josh says thank you, and also would like to emphasize that he is capable of thinking of names other than Quagmire.
