Hubby and I are expecting our fist in a couple of months - a girl
After going through every name in the book we decided on Alessandra - not my type of name but somehow it just seems like it's her name. Goes with our backgrounds, extended foreign family will be able to pronounce it, I think it's very pretty and you could get a lot of good nicknames, etc... Wow! I'm really trying to convince everyone (ahem- myself) that this is the right name!
Anyhoo, we're on to middle names. I keep hearing how a one syllable would be best for such a long name BUT we both really love Cosima with it. I should mention our surname in quite short - 4 letters, 2 quick syllables. Begins with an R.
So Alessandra Cosima R---. Other mn I'm considering is Sage or Olive. As you can see I want to give her an unconventional, perhaps quirky mn since the first name is so serious (imo). Hubby isn't crazy about Sage or Olive but I'm just not sure if Cosima is too much.
Any feedback is much appreciated!
