Names That vs. Fit These

Hey! This is probably going to sound odd and make us seem way too picky, but we have a lot of things that we are looking for with our daughter’s name. The name cannot start with R or N, cannot end in the A sound and cannot end with L, it has to be old fashioned/classic, at least two syllables, nothing with -lynn or -leigh/lee/etc. tacked on the end, nothing oddly spelled, and cannot be a unisex or boy name. I know that is a lot, but do you have any ideas that fit those? Thanks so much! -Elinor

I like the girls name Cadence. For a boy I like the name Stephen.

Please do not be rude. It is unnecessary and unhelpful. At the beginning of the poll I specifically said it will sound odd and make us seem picky so it’s not as though a warning wasn’t given or we don’t realize it. Please be helpful and give suggestions. By not giving actual ideas and help it is just wasting time

Cadence is a unisex or boy name to us. Also, we are having a daughter (I thought I had mentioned that in the poll?) so we do not need boy names

I like Violet! I like Eva but cannot use it since with ends with A/the A sound. My name is Elinor so Eleanor from your list wouldn’t work as that would be extremely odd to use for my daughter.

Hmm, first time I have EVER heard Cadence described as remotely unisex, though I can see that it’s not your style.

Harriet
Josephine
Margaux
Alice
Caroline
Ruby
Greer (can sound like one or two syllables depending on who’s saying it)
Edith
Agnes
Juliet


These ones may end too much in an "A" sound for you?
Briar
Clover
Dinah
posted by guest :: 2013-11-02 22:31:34 | report
I like Alice, Ruby, and Juliet! By A sound I mean names like Dinah which end in that A/Ah sound. I don’t want anything that ends with A at all (or Ah in some cases I suppose). Briar, Clover, and Greer don’t fit that classic/old fashioned category. Also, Briar and Greer are unisex which we can’t use
posted by guest: Poll Creator :: 2013-11-02 22:34:33 | report
Seems like unisex are a whole different category wherever youre from

No, the names that I have said are unisex are known worldwide as unisex names; just because a name isn’t Ryan or Dylan doesn’t mean that it can’t be unisex. I’m sorry but I don’t like Margaret, Catherine, or Noelle

I like Pearl but it’s only one syllable which we cannot use
posted by guest: Poll Creator :: 2013-11-02 22:50:02 | report
some of those names are definitely not "worldwide" known as unisex
posted by guest :: 2013-11-02 22:53:26 | report
I really do not want to argue on whether or not you believe names are unisex. They are unisex to us and I think that’s what really matters since it is our child that we will have to be calling this name for their whole life
posted by guest: Poll Creator :: 2013-11-02 22:56:46 | report
...Cadence isn’t even unisex though...
posted by guest :: 2013-11-02 23:02:17 | report
Again, I really do not want to argue on whether or not you believe a name or names is/are unisex. Cadence is unisex to us and I know people from all over that think the same. Please give other name suggestions as Cadence will never be considered by us.

I don’t understand your comment but please just give other suggestions that fit what I am looking for. You don’t have to agree with me on certain things but please respect what I have said I do/do not want for my child. Thank you!

Violet, Jasmine, Gracyn, Josephine, Lillian, Judith, Robin, Mary, Marie, Julie, Susan perhaps? Cadence is unisex. Everyone could stop being so rude. If you don’t have any helpful imput you can simply click away. Best of luck and I hope yall find the perfect name for your daughter!

Marlowe is a unisex/boy name to me and Caprice has always reminded me of "Capri Sun" sorry! I’m not sure why that connection is there but it is

posted by guest: Poll Creator :: 2013-11-02 23:50:17 | report
Can you give us a list of names you DO like to help give us an idea of wht you want? Preferably in the order you like them. Thanks!
posted by guest :: 2013-11-02 23:51:34 | report
I really don’t have an order of which I like the best! From the ones suggested I like these:

Lillian
Ingrid
Louise
Imogen
Charlotte
Violet
Alice
Ruby
Juliet
Miriam
Genevieve

However I know my husband will not agree to some of those.

Names that we have liked but can’t use:

Eva
Pearl
Lucille
Estelle
Amelia
Alessandra
Lydia
Emma
Matilda
posted by guest: Poll Creator :: 2013-11-02 23:57:22 | report
You could try names that sound close to the ones you like but cant use?

example

Emma? what about=Emme?

Eva? what about Everly? Its not old per see but it starts with the Ev sound

Matilda has a form of it. Tillie is a name connected to Matilida

Amelia? what about Amalie
posted by guest: guest :: 2013-11-03 01:08:22 | report
and some more

Aurore
Lorelei
Lauren
Mattie-is a short form of Matalida
Elizabeth/Elisabeth
Paulette
Pauline
Adeline
Adele
Mackenzie
Colleen
Sadie
Mandy
Joanie
Joni
Teagan
Gretchen
Margo
Patsy
Annie
Angie
Amber
Margaret
Therese


Therese is actually a form of Theresa but since you said no A at the end I suggested Therese
posted by guest: guest :: 2013-11-03 01:22:09 | report
Olive
Odette
Carrie/Kerry


Can the name suggestion be a nickname?

example

Becky as short form of Rebecca?

Amy/Aimee/Amee
Bridget
Cindy
Calliope
Cassidy/Kassidy
Emily
Doris
Evadine-her nickname could then be Eva since her legal name wouldn’t end in a
