thoughts on vs. Messalina

While in college I had to read work by French man called Baudelaire. In one of his writings, he mentions the name Messalina. As soon as I read it, I loved it. Now that my husband and I are having a little girl we were considering this name. What do you all think of it? It’s pronounced Mess-a-lee-na. Thanks, Carl, Gaby and baby girl!

I think it’s pretty, but bound to be shortened to Mess or Messy.

What about Selena?

I agree that the nn’s would be cruel. Plus, you should Google the name &/or look up on Wiki and you may decide against the name. Granted, not everyone will know this info off hand, but if she someday has to look up her name that’s what she’ll find.
Maybe try sound alike names (Alyssa Lena, Melissa Lena, Alena, etc) that will remind you of the name you love. Good luck!
