To me, every name has a personality attached. I'm afraid that by chosing a wrong name, I'm playing with the odds -I'm being overly dramatic, but just can't get over it.
I can definitely relate to that! It can be so frustrating sometimes.
Here's my honest opinion:
is not so
rhimey. Obviously there's a very similar sound, but the outcome is not so bad IMO.
If you really love it, I'd say keep it. If you're not sure altogether, here are some combinations. I took into consideration the same criteria you listed for the girls names-- so old fashioned it is:
David Andrew Lin
Isaac Andrew Lin
Broderick Andrew Lin (nn Brody?)
Forrest Andrew Lin
Truman Andrew Lin
Frederick Andrew Lin (nn Freddie?)
Harrison Andrew Lin (nn Harry?)
Jackson Andrew Lin
Maxwell Andrew Lin (nn Max?)
Porter Andrew Lin
Rupert Andrew Lin
Theodore Andrew Lin (nn Ted?)
Crawford Andrew Lin
Asher Andrew Lin
Percival Andrew Lin (nn Percy?)
PS: I love Andrew as a middle name!
Are any of these cutting it for you? I'm just throwing names out there, maybe I went a little overboard on the old-fashioned thing. LOL
is truly a beautiful name, and it's on my list of favourites as well (I just spell it Evelyn).
When paired with the last name Lin, it does
create a strong rhimey sound. But honestly? Weirder things have happened.
I mean, if Bob Geldof gets away with naming his daughters Peaches Honeyblossom
and Fifi Trixibelle
, you should only worry about it so much.
It's hardly gonna ruin your girl's life: besides, how many people will call her by both first and last name on a daily basis? Not many, I presume.
You know, I actually think she's gonna thank you one day -when she'll be in class, surrounded by Kayleigh's and Nevaeh's- for giving her such a gorgeous name!
Middle name suggestions just on top of my head:
[short and traditional, for the most part]
Evelynn Sara Lin
Evelynn Cassia Lin
Evelynn Clare Lin
Evelynn Sofia Lin
Evelynn Greta Lin
Evelynn Nora Lin
Evelynn Briana Lin
Evelynn Jane Lin
Evelynn Cara Lin
Evelynn Katie Lin
Evelynn Francie Lin
Evelynn Georgia Lin
Evelynn Macy Lin
(or, Evelynn Marcy Lin)
Evelynn Maggie Lin
Evelynn Maya Lin
Evelynn Cassandra Lin [this is not short, but I think it flows]
Evelynn Phoebe Lin
Evelynn Paige Lin
Evelynn Rosa Lin
Evelynn Serena Lin
Evelynn Tamara Lin
Hope some of this have helped, or at least inspired you!
As for the other names, Charlotte Marianne is a good combo, maybe not my favourite but definitely two beautiful names!
Donald is not really my style, but it goes well with Philippe.
Good luck, Deysi!
