Elliot, Alaina, Teagen, etc
Posted 06 April 2010 - 04:03 PM
I have still been avoiding unisex names, but I came across Elliot on a girl, and was curious to your thoughts! Up till recently, I had little intrest in the nick name Ellie on a girl. I thought of longer names and Elliot seemed to fit right. I can see it on a girl now all a sudden. Opinions? Ive been looking at the combo Elliot Faith nn Ellie-Faith, WDYT?
I'm not sure how to spell Teagan/Teagen? But I kinda like this combo a lot! I'm thinking Alaina as a first name, Teagan Alaina doesnt seem to sound as good Which sounds best, Alaina Teagen/ Teagan Alaina/ or neither?
I read the name Eden in a book I was reading (Tricks by Ellen Hopkins lol) and I'm loving it!
Emma-Leigh:- sound pointless?
I kinda think it looks prettier then Emily, but is it kinda pointless to add so much extra to it? Does it look really trendy or too long? Any opinions are welcomed lol
Lastly, how do these three sound as sib sets? Ellie, Emma, and Eden? Or Ellie-Faith, Emma-Kate, and Eden/Edy-___?
Thanks so much!!! ~Haddie

Elliot : I love the name Elliot. However, I love it for a boy, not a girl. I really don't think it looks good on a girl, but then again I think some names that were made for boys should stay that way (ex: Ryan, Dylan, Logan, Chase, etc). I think Ella, Ellie, Elizabeth, Eleanora and Eliana are very beautiful for a girl and would work with the nickname you want.
Alaina Teagan: I think Teagan could be spelled either way, but I think Teagan looks better. I love the name Alaina, it is very pretty. Overall, I think the combination is nice.
Eden Willow: I love this combination! I personally love both of these names, they are both on my list. Great choice!
Emma-Leigh: I think this combination is pretty, but pointless. It sounds exactly the same as Emily, so you might as well use the traditional spelling. However if you like Emma, there are alot of middle names that would go with this name.
Ellie, Emma, Eden as sib-set: I think this sib-set sounds great, it is very cute, but not too rhymy

Alaina Teagan: I prefer Elena (they are pronounce about the same, right?). The combo flows alright. I'm not really a fan of either name, but I don't hate them.
Eden Willow: I too love both of the names, though I would prefer Willow as a first name since I don't like Edie as a nn. I'm also not fond of putting two nouns together. Like Savannah Rose or Violet Lily; I just think it sounds cutesy and ridiculous. I think there are better combos out there.
Emma-Leigh: That is 4 unnecessary letters and a hyphen. I think it is too over-the-top. The first time I saw it this way it took two full minutes before I realized it is the exact same as Emily. I would stick with the originial.
Ellie, Emma, Eden as sib-set: I'm not fond of alliterative sib-sets, but at least they aren't rhymey. I guess i can see the appeal, and they do go alright together.

For Elliot, I plan on keeping it as a guilty pleasure, being it is very masculine. I'm not sure why I picture it so well on a girl though lol
Elana is the same as Alaina I think, but I kinda do like that spelling too Elana Teagan looks as nice as Alaina, or maybe I can use Elaina. lol I'll have to figure that out XP
Thanks Lilah, Cassie, and Kyuuketsuki!!! I'm loving Eden Willow! Though, I hadn't noticed it was two nouns put together, Mishada I usually dont like two nouns put together either :/ Hmm...
I was thinking Emma-Leigh was kinda pointless. I adore the looks of both Emma and Leigh, and I think it looks kinda beautiful together. But, its needless to not just use Emily. Oh well
Yas suggested to me Evy, Emma, and Eden, which I love a lot, though I kinda think Eden and Evy are a bit close
Thank you soooooo much for the input!

Alaina Teagen--I would spell Alaina as Elena. Not a fan of Teagen, but the flow of the combo works well.
Eden Willow--Eden is a fantastic name, and I've been loving it as a middle name recently. Willow is not my style, but it works with Eden
Emma-Leigh: I like the fact that you're putting a twist on the very popular name. If I used Emily, I would spell it as Emilie/Emelie. Emma-Leigh is a bit awkward though, because it makes you pause and want to say Emma pause Leigh, instead of stringing the names together. I prefer just the name Emma over Emily. One combo I've been liking is Emma Katherine.
Ellie, Emma, and Eden are really cute together! I can't decide if they're too close or not....
