Claudia Claire vs. Simone Sofie vs. Miriam Mikaela

My husband and I have recently discovered that we are having a girl. My favorite name of all time is Claudia. I just love it. However, my husband has decided he wants to name her after his grandmother (Miriam) or mine (Simone). I don’t really care for naming children after people. I really don’t like it, but my husband does. So please help us decide which name is better. Thanks. Emily & Shaun.

Actually Claudia Simone sounds wonderful together!

I like Claudia a lot also, it works great with Simone or Miriam so that your husband gets his way too. It’s nice to use relatives in naming your children, but to me Simone and especially Miriam are sort of outdated names. They’re very pretty but they just remind me of older women, and for that reason I’d use them as middle names and keep Claudia for the first name.

I’d use Claudia as the fn and either Simone or Miriam as the mn. And I really don’t think Simone and Miriam are outdated....they are classics and those older women started out as babies with those names!

Are both grandmothers living? If so, and if you feel you must use a grandma’s name, I think you should name the baby Claudia Miriam Simone. If just one grandmother is living, I think you should name her Claudia [living grandma’s name] so she can enjoy the honor (and then save the other grandma’s name for another baby).
Though I think Claudia Claire is the prettiest and that’s what I’d go for.

I lhave ALWAYS loved the name Simone. I agree that Claudia Simone works really well together. I think that my favorite would be Mikaela Simone. Good luck.
