Due in 3 weeks and not sure what to pick between these two possible names. Which name would you pick and why? 

 

Thanks

I gave this a lot of thought.  And here is what I came up with:

 

Emily has a better flow.  Hands down.  But I would still choose Calista (which is lovely) and here is why...

 

1.  Emily is pretty common like Rose.  Calista has the edge here because it adds a little unique spin.

2.  Emily is very old fashioned.  Calista is more modern and matches the spunky vibe of Paige better

3.  Emily causes an unfortunate initials situation.  Not terrible but it's there and it doesn't happen with Calista.

4.  The book/movie named The Exorcism of Emily Rose was a movie about a possessed girl.

5.  Calista means beautiful and Emily means rival.  I would choose the meaning of Calista over Emily.

 

After saying all that I have to end with they are both great names!!!!  Really, you have no worries because both are very pretty.  I just wanted to make a clear case for one name over another.  Let us know what you choose!! :)

I'm a little biased so I like the combo of Paige Emily Rose. I prefer Calliope to Calista. Calista reminds me of a really outdated name like Linda. Just doesn't seem fitting. But if you love it then go for it! Its your child!
