Baby Name Poll Results
Please vs. Help!
Hi there! My husband and I are in need of help with girl names. We are, without a doubt, using Debora as a middle name but we cannot find any first names to flow with it! We really like old fashioned, frilly names that are also uncommon but all the ones we find don’t flow with Debora. Any suggestions? Thanks! -Eleanor
The Top Baby Name is...
thats all i can think of, Debora doesnt really flow well as a middle name...good luck!
Alexis and Sienna aren’t the styles we’re looking for. Victoria is nice (and more of what we like) but we can’t use it.
We like Sylvie, Lucy, and Vivienne! We also like Phoebe and Rose but we don’t like Phoebe enough to really use it and Rose sounds bad with our last name (which is one syllable). We also like Aurora and Isla but not with Debora
Most of the frilly names I’m thinking of end with A and don’t flow well with Debora at all. (Claudia or Julia, for example. Which I adore.)
Madeline is the only one we like of the three, but it’s too common (where we live) for us-sorry!
That’s our problem, we had a bunch of names we both really liked but they all ended in A and sounded horrible with Debora! We like Imogen!
Sadie Debora *My grandma’s name :)
Hazel Debora * My other grandma’s name :)
Good Luck =)
I really love Sylvie! It’s fresh and spunky,yet timeless and classic. Let us know what you choose!
Margaret, Margurite(not sure of proper spelling of Margurite)
These are all that come to mind. Not knowing your ln, I hope you can find something that flows all the way through.
We like Vivienne and Helene! I also love the names Estelle, Juliette, and Violet however a very good friend of ours just named their daughter Estelle and Juliette & Violet are the names of two of my nieces!
Part of the reason we really like Sylvie is because it’s French! I am French so I may be biased to French names though?
We like Grace but since our last name is only one syllable as well, it doesn’t flow! We don’t really like the other names-sorry!
We like Celeste but due to personal reasons, can’t/won’t be using it. We don’t really like the others-sorry! Please see above about Estelle!
We don’t like those three, they’re not really the style of what we’re looking for-sorry!
I know it was suggested already, but I think Lucy Debora would be so beautiful! It flows well too! best wishes with whatever you decide!!
Thank you! Lucy has definitely made our list!
We don’t like any of those names-sorry!
Do you prefer it to start with a certain letter?
No, not really; though we would prefer they did not start with D or N!
Those aren’t really what we’re looking for-sorry!
Hettienne is too weird/out there for us-sorry!
Eleanor (after you, nn Ellie)
I think you should AX Debora
I found this website a while back, you may like it. It shows names that were popular in the Victorian Era. You may want to take a look at it, best wishes :)
Why are you using Debora? Not to be rude.
We like Amelie but since Amelia has become so common in our area we are nervous that it would always be mistaken for that! In one of my above comments (I don’t expect you all to read them or go looking for them) I addressed Juliette; which is a lovely name but we can’t use it. Same goes with Penelope, unfortunately. Using my name is really weird to me; I don’t even like when people do that with boys so Eleanor is a definite no for me-sorry!
We are definitely not getting rid of Debora. Debora is my mother-in-law’s name who has done more for me (along with my husband obviously) than I can ever express or thank her for. And thank you for the link we’ll look through it!
Alice Debora may be nice. Good luck :)
We like Alice!
To address your concern for Amelie, Amelia is very popular in my area as well and I named my daughter Amelie and everyone loves it! She is two and whenever she says her name, she smiles and claps. We receive many compliments on how her name is so adorable and different, but still fits in with everyone else’s. Best of luck and hope I helped!
Thank you! If you don’t mind my asking, but what is your daughter’s middle name (just curious!)? I really think Amelie is lovely, though maybe it goes back to the whole French biased thing, however my husband still isn’t completely convinced.
My daughter’s full name is Amelie Delilah, after my aunt. I hope you husband gives in! I think it is absolutely stunning name!
We don’t like those-sorry!
Your daughter has a stunning name! Delilah has always been a favorite of mine! And I will definitely be talking to him (and probably begging) about at least thinking about considering it!
Thank you so much! I hope everything goes well for you!
You’re welcome, and thank you! And thank you to everyone else; neither of us really expected so much help so we really appreciate it! We’ll probably go through the names on here (along with the website suggested) and possibly make another poll with a list! However if anyone thinks of more names please suggest them, they’re always appreciated!
I’d also like to apologize if we seem really picky! Girl names are really hard for us, and we both know that Debora is not an easy name to match with but it has a lot of meaning to us.
What about spelling it like this Emily/Emeli so Amelie won’t get confused with Amelia?
Amelie is not pronounced like Emily.
Emily and Amelie aren’t pronounced the same (at least the way we’re saying it); we don’t really like the name Emily and we really don’t like changing spellings (with a few exceptions like Vivienne and such)-sorry!
Emmeline Debora (love this!)
Best of luck! I hope you like some of these :)
And my favorite: Jacqueline Deborah!
I’ve decided to post some more that I’ve come across, because you seem like you really need names!
Frances Debora (Frankie)
Josephine Debora (Josie)
Susannah/Suzanna Debora (Susie/Suzy)
Anneliese (or Annalise) Debora
Megan Debora (I love this!)
Philippa Debora (Pippa)
Best of luck! I really hope you both fall in love with a name soon :)
So what name did you choose?
