GIRLS:

Audrey Nell - This is a very vintage feeling combo, and I like it, although it's not my favourite. To me it's very soft sounding, not necessarily in the names themselves, but the image that I get if that makes sense. It's pretty, and I can see it ageing well.

Norah Eloise - I do prefer the spelling Nora, but I like this combo. For me I'd have it as Eloise Nora, just because at the moment I'm liking Eloise more for a first than Nora, but it's beautiful either way.

Violet Sofia - Gorgeous, cutesy but I can also picture it on an older person, which is always great! I love this spelling of Sofia, it's much more elegant (at least in my opinion) than the trendy Sophia.

Imogen Phoebe nn Ginny - I also love this combo, you have such a wonderful taste in names! Imogen is darling, but I may have a bias since my cousin is called Imogen, and Phoebe is on my list. The nn Ginny gives it a spunky feel, although I do also like the cutesy Immy, but I'm also biased about that too :-P

Mae Juliet - I adore Mae in the first spot, it feels so overused in the middle, yet so fresh as a first name, especially with this gorgeous spelling. Juliet is adorable, I have it on my list as a middle for Phoebe.

Elodie Rose nn Edie - I do prefer Eloise over Elodie, but it's still a pretty name. Edie is an unexpected nn for it, but I like it! I think it gives it a more unique edge, rather than just being one of lots of Ellie's she can be a spunky, funky Edie :-P

Grace (No middle) - As with Mae, I love Grace as a first. Some middle suggestions: Clementine, Vivienne, Juliette, Alexandra, Penelope, Persephone, Lydia, Josephine, Ariadne, Athena.

Lenore (No middle) nn Lennie - I'm not really a fan of this, though Lennie is cute. Suggestions: Vivienne, Zoe, Katherine, Willow, Fiona, Sofia, Jessamine.

Olive Marguerite - Neither of these are my favourite names, but they go well together. I can see them ageing really well.

Piper Amelie nn Pip - Very cute, I love the nn Pip for Piper, it's unique.

(No first) Vivienne - I like Vivienne, I think it needs a shorter first name. Suggestions: Alice, Emma, Zoe, Molly, Sophie, Chloe, Ella, Jane.

Hazel Dianna - I like this pairing, the styles seem different but they go well together. I do prefer Diana with just one n though.


BOYS:

Noah (No middle) - I like Noah, although it's popularity bothers me. I have Noah Stanley on my list. Suggestions: Gage, Samuel, Alexander, Easton, Jeremy, Zachary, Jackson.

Amos Daniel - Amos is nice, but Daniel isn't my favourite.

Levi Clarke - I like Levi, and I think that Clarke gives it a more grown up feel.

Max (No middle) - Max is cute. Suggestions: Anders, Elias, Elijah, Keiran, Orion, Nikolai.

Henry August - I love this combo. Cute but also grown up.

Reid (No middle) - I like Reid. Suggestions: Elliott, Wesley, Isaiah, Wilson, Jeremiah.

Miles Tristan - This is handsome.

Theodore Kent nn Teddy - I like Theodore, especially the nn Teddy. Not so sure about Kent, but they go well together.

Jude Rowan - I feel like Rowan Jude would flow better, but it's still a nice combo.

(No first) Ezra - I'm not a fan of Ezra. Suggestions: Reilly, Bennett, Lewis, Matthew, Malachi.

Thanks so much Hannah! :wub:


For the girls:


2. I like Eloise Norah, but I'm desperate to use Norah as a first name. (I did have Eloise Maya on my list, but unsure about that one).


3. I'm using Sofia rather than "Sophia" because it was my great grandmother's name. (She passed away a month or so before I was born and my mum was pretty close to her. Thought it was nice to honour her).


5. I love Mae. (Always makes me think of Mae West and Mae Whitman!). As for Juliet, I have a younger sister called "Yuli" who is spectacular. So I figured, I can honour her using my French heritage and use this variation! Which do you prefer; Juliet or Juliette?


7. I tend to like the more popular middles as first. (Same goes with Rose, Elizabeth etc.). I really like Grace Clementine! I want something more fun to compliment it, since Grace is pretty simple and girly. I had Grace Imogen for a long time and then it changed to Grace Matilda. So something along those lines.


8. I liked Lennon Rose nn Lennie for a while, but it just didn't fit in with my usual style. (So it's been moved to my GP list). However, I just adore the nn Lennie and didn't want to give it up. Lenore seems to fit stylistically with the rest of my list.

I like Lenore Vivienne and Lenore Katherine. Any more suggestions? I think I'd like something short and girly.


10. I agree that Vivienne needs something short, middle name wise. It's already three syllables and from your suggestions I LOVE it paired with Molly and Jane. And though I like Sophie Vivienne, I can't see myself using Sophie as a first.. and my sister has Vivienne Sophie on her list. (That I made her write!)


For the boys:


1. I really want a middle that's less common as opposed to Noah. It's become way too popular, but for some reason, it's the only name I can really see myself 100% using if I ever have a boy. I had Griffin, Clarke, Patrick, Alexander etc. but none fit the way I wanted them to.

From your suggestions I like Easton.. though it's not a favourite.


4. I like Max Nikolai, but I don't love it. Any other suggestions?


6. Reid is after my love of Matthew Gray Gubler. :wub: Total crush on him. I had Reid Matthew, but thought it was maybe too much? I felt a little stalkery. Reid Wilson is lovely though! I might add it to my list.


8. Though I like Rowan, like with Norah, I really want Jude as a first name. I just adore it!


9. Ezra is to honour my dad (Guy Ezra) and though he doesn't like it, I think it would work wonderfully as a middle.

I've had Ezra Bennett and Ezra Matthew on my list. Though I might use your suggestion of Matthew Ezra!



Any ideas on how I can honour the following?

My grandmothers Hannah & Mary (deceased)?

My sister Danielle, My mother Andrea, My aunt Efrat (Effie), My best friends: Melissa (Mel), Farheen, Clare, Marissa..

My brothers Benjamin (Ben) and Ori, my best friend Daniel..


Anything?

I know some of these names are pretty unusual.

I feel like none of these necessarily have the... zest that your names have :( I just couldn't seem to come up with names that really suited you! Who knows, maybe I'm wrong though. Maybe one of these will appeal? <3

Beautiful! Thank you. :wub:


I really like Grace Helena (I had this on my list at some point!) , Lenore Gwyneth (How does Lenore Gwen sound?), Mara Vivienne,

Noah Sebastian, Max Gideon (I have Caleb Dawson and Liam Warren on my list), Reid Sawyer and Matteo Ezra.


LOVE Mara Vivienne and Max Gideon though. I might add them. ^_^

Thanks doll face!


You know me too well.

Hmm, I missed this last post! Aw I'd keep Norah as a first name and stick to Eloise Maya if you want Norah to be a first. I mean Eloise Norah goes so wonderfully, but I really like Eloise Maya!! <3

For Juliet / Juliette, I prefer Juliet. Its a little more simple and to the point being Juliet in itself seems such a long flouncy girly name already <3 Thats just what I think though <3

Of course, I'd adore Grace Clementine (; CLEMENTINE!!!! :wub:

I wont lie, I kinda prefer Lennon Rose to Lenore Rose. Like both are very lovely, but idk. Theres just something about Lennon... I tihnk you could pull it off!

For the honoring.. are you looking for variations or mixing them up or what? :) For Danielle and Daniel I think any version of the two would work ;) I think "Ann" names would honor both of them plus Hannah and Andrea. Anne itself is so lovely and dainty! WDYT? Or Anna? You had it before so I'm assuming it may have lost its appeal? :( Mary, Melissa, and Marissa ( :blush: B) ) are an easy mix! Any -issa name or a Mar name. I think Lise / Elise could honor Melissa fairly well, Mara could go for Mary and Marissa, or Marla could get them all. Marla's actually a wicked good one to get them all, though it makes me think of Fight Club lol. I think an Ari name could work for Mary, Marissa, and Clare as well in a way! (mainly Mary and Clare have the long a but pishaa). Arianna would actually kinda get the Anna names along with the -ar- names! Or you could do Arannalissadra :lol: Bahahaha okay I need to calm down :rolleyes: I like Bennett as a form of Benjamin, loooove it <3 I can't think of many names to honor Ori, except maybe Orion. Hmm.

Lol we keep posting around the same times as each other :blush:

I couldn't remember if you had or not, but I remember you liking Helena a lot at one point!! <3 And tbh I much prefer Lenore Gwen to Lenore Gwyneth, its a little too long as that. Tbh, I kinda love Mara Vivienne a lot for some reason. It does have some persionality to it! Like a mix of normalicy with dainty and gorgoeus and maybe some attitude in there <3 Hmm!

Glad to be of service! ;)

SO.


Eloise Maya stays and I've added Mara Vivienne, Grace Clementine and Lenore Gwen to the girls list.

I still LOVE Anna, but I just can't seem to find the perfect middle. I really liked it paired with Florence, but there was something not quite right about it? I did think it was perfect to honour my grandma, mum, Danielle and Daniel! I have it paired with Liesel at the moment. (Which contains "El-" so honours multiple people)

Arianna is lovely, but it's growing in popularity too right? :(


For Mary and you (<3), I think Mara is awesome. (Also honours my mum since one of her middles is Marie).


Bennett IS perfect for BenBen. And Bennett Ezra honours both him and my dad. Perfect!


I think Eloise and Elodie work to honour Danielle/Daniel AND Melissa too, since they all contain "El-".


But there's nothing I can come up with for Effie, except maybe Ephraim as a middle for a boy. But I don't love it.

As for Ori? His middle name is Percy.. but that reminds me of Percy Pig. I've never been a huge fan.



Now, Lennon Rose! I really love it, but I have Elodie Rose.. so not sure what I could pair it with that would be better and help me pull it off. Lennon is pretty uncommon and definitely not one that fits with my style. But there's something so fun and playful about it.

I think Rose balanced it out perfectly (Though I tend to NOT use filler middle names).

Meh. It's too difficult!


I've also added Max Gideon and Ezra Wilson/Bennett Ezra.

How does Reid Atticus sound?

-I total vote Alexandria as a way to honor your mom (hehe, just kidding...kinda ;))-


Not gonna lie, I adore basically all of your names. Mara Vivienne is GORGEOUS and I love Henry August. Mara and Henry make a cute sibset, too. Those are my top two from your list for real.

Girls


Since your names are always so gorgeous, I list the ones I love first: Norah Eloise, Violet Sofia, Mae Juliet, Imogen Phoebe "Ginny", and Elodie Rose "Edie".

Here are a few critiques:

Audrey Nell - I love Audrey, but Nell is more of a nickname to me than an actual name.
Olive Marguerite - This name is nice, just not my style. I personally not a fan of either name.
Piper Amelie - Both names are pretty, although I personally don't like Piper. Pip is a cute nickname, but Piper nicknamed Pip seems a tad juvenile to me.
Hazel Dianna - I like this combo, but I personally prefer the spelling Diana.

Now for first / middle name suggestions:

Grace Aurelia

Grace Penelope

Grace Persephone

Grace Alexandra

Grace Elisabeth

Grace Cordelia

Grace Katherine

Grace Olivia
