I love Isaac Randolph. Very handsome!

Nala is a little too cutesy sound for my tastes. I'd prefer it as a nickname, maybe for Natalia. It reminds me of The Lion King. Didn't Halle Berry name her daughter Nahla? I read a lot of of Lion King comments after that. I'm also not crazy about the alliteration of Nala Noreen. It's sing songy and increases the cutesy factor.

  • Interests:I LOVE reading. I'm into almost every genre and generally read a book a week, if possible. I like Iris Johansen, Karen Marie Moning, Stephen King, James Patterson, Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë, Diana Gabaldon, Kathy Reichs, and Robert Burns (every Scot's favorite author). I really love music and even got accepted to the Mason Gross School of Performing Arts at Rutgers University (my alma mater) for vocal performance. Unfortunately performance life was not for me, so I went into English Lit and French instead. Music is still a big part of my life, and I like a multitude of musical genres from Reggae to Rock to Opera. I've seen Carmen and La bohème each twice. (And I cry every time.) My husband and I also have a special place in our hearts for The Beatles.

I have to agree with Liz, Nala makes me think of The Lion King. Natalia nn Nala would be darling and she wouldn't have people constantly say, "Nala, as in The Lion King? Seriously?" I really can't see Nala being on a business card and people taking her seriously.

Isaac is a very strong boy's name. I like it. Randolph is not one of my favorites, but if it has significance to you I say use it.

Isaac Randolph is very handsome. I'm not much of a fan of Randolph, but it's still very nice and it's significant. I actually think Nahla (spelled that way) is adorable, but it wouldn't grow with her at all. It'd be cute when she was a baby, during school, maybe even a little into college. But once she goes into the business world, it won't fly. I love the idea of Natalia Noreen, though. Then you can call her Nala until she decides she wants to go by Natalia. :]

Isaac Randolph is very handsome :) I actually like Nala, and I think that in this case the alliteration is a pro rather than a con, but I can see it failing to grow up with the child. Natalia Noreen, as has been suggested, is lovely.

i too agree that isaac randolph is an amazing name. handsome, classic, not trendy, not 'cute', not overused, and ages well!

i like the name nala but i don't think it ages well, i also think it is too short for the combo because the n's bother me but i think that if the first name was longer like natalia noreen, the n's wouldn't bother me as much. i like the idea of nala as a nickname. in a casual, familial, friendly setting, it definitely works, but when she's older and uses it for such professoinal business like things, i just don't see it emitting a great first impression. i like noreen though!
