Should I name vs. my daughter vs. Chelsea Brielle

I decided on the name Chelsea Brielle for my daughter and I was very excited to tell everyone but when I did my family didn’t like it and I was very upset. What do you think? My older daughters are called Ciara Brooke and Caelie Belle. Thank you :)

Chelsea Brielle is gorgeous! It fits well with your other girls, and it’s just a very sweet name. Stick to your guns; once your daughter is born, your family will love her so much that her name will grow on them as well. It’s a great name. :-)

~God bless!

What matters is that YOU like the name. If you like it, use it. I think it’s a pretty name. What kind of family tells you they dislike your name choice? Rather rude, in my opinion.

I think Brielle is lovely. I’m not as fond of Chelsea.
Other suggestions:
Cynthia Brielle (Thia)
Clara Brielle
Carin Brielle
Cara Brielle
Crista Brielle
Constance Brielle
Candace Brielle
Claudia Brielle
Caroline Brielle

But she is YOUR daughter & you get to name her. So if you love the name, your family can just get used to it. Good luck.

Chelsea Brielle is fine. Honestly, sometimes I think people shouldn’t even tell their families the names they’ve chosen until the birth certificate is signed.

I like Chelsea but not paired with Brielle.
Chelsea Briar would be my suggestion.

I like it, I just think its too close to your other children’s names. Do you like any of these?


If you do change your decision, don’t tell your family. When you have the baby and name her, they can’t say anything then.

"Chelsea Brielle is fine. Honestly, sometimes I think people shouldn’t even tell their families the names they’ve chosen until the birth certificate is signed."

Completely agree 100% with this. Don’t change the name you love based on ridiculous negative feedback.

Sometimes I think negative feedback is justified when they have a valid reason (too close to siblings, won’t age well, etc) but in this case I don’t see those reasons.

If anything, you could change the middle name so that it wasn’t too close to Belle. I loved the suggestion of Chelsea Briar. Chelsea Brianna or Chelsea Bridget would also be lovely.

To be completely honest-Chelsea does seem dated to me and Brielle is a pretty name but too close to Belle.

If you were naming your baby something tacky or trashy, then I\’d give you negative feedback, but Chelsea Brielle isn\’t either of those. tell them its your kid, and you\’ll name her what you want. Don\’t discuss the name anymore with family. I will never again tell family what my baby\’s name will be till after he or she is born. I did it before, and it was a big mistake. Go with Chelsea Brielle, its gorgeous, and goes well with your other girls names. all of them having C.B. initials is cute. GL.

Chelsea Brielle is so cute! It’s easy to spell and pronounce, it’s not an obscure or "made up" name, and I think it’s very feminine and pretty. Tell your family to mind their beeswax!

I love it! Chelsea is underused for being such a nice name.
