Baby Names

Looking for opinions and suggestions

DH and I are currently discussing baby names :) We're pretty set on Dean Edward if baby is a boy but are still sorting through our favourites to put together a girl name. I know a lot of our favourites are quite popular right now, so I will probably try to pair them with less popular names.

  • Hannah Zoe
  • Alice Hannah
  • Katelyn Alice
  • Abigail Miriam

We also like Lillian and Evelyn. DH's top at the moment is Hannah Zoe and I'm partial to using Alice as either first or middle name. Our last name starts with L and is one syllable, so that has limited some choices (and makes Lillian hard to work with).

Any thoughts or suggestions on other names that would work well with these?

Re: Looking for opinions and suggestions

  • I like your boy name very much.  It sounds very distinguished.  We considered Dean for DS#2 (it is FIL mn), but DH joking referred to the boys as Reedo and Deano and that was it for me.  Deano makes me think of a dinosaur and I was afraid it would be a natural nn especially since Reed gets called Reedo a lot.

     

    I LOVE the name Evelyn.  It was our girl name for DS#2. I really like Abigail out of your other choices. I  think Hannah sounds a bit dated just because it was so popular in the 90s.  I agree Lillian may not work with your last name unless you really like the alliteration.  Alice is nice.  Katelyn is cute too, but maybe a little outdated.  Katherine/Kathryn is probably more timeless.

  • Out of your girls names I love, Evelyn and Abigail. I'm not a fan of how you paired some of your names up, but the best one I like is Katelyn Alice.

    You could also do Alice Catherine/Katherine.

    Best of luck.

     That's a beautiful name. I like htat. :)

    OP, I'm not a fan of the pairings, either. I do like a few of the names, though, like Alice, Catherine/Katherine, Abigail, Evelyn and Hannah. I also love Miriam and the corresponding nickname Miri. It's a first name in my opinion. :)

    I don't like Katelyn. I think it's blah and very '80s. I think Zoe is overused. 

     Suggestions:

    Alice Catherine/Katherine (like the above)

    Evelyn Abigail

    Abigail Evelyn

    Abigail Catherine

    Hannah Catherine

    Alice Evelyn

    Miriam Catherine

    Miriam Hannah

    Miriam Alice

  • Your boy name is great.

    I like Abigail and Lillian, but the rest are nice too. I'm kind of "over" Katelyn, and I'm not a huge fan of the -yn ending. 

    My vote is for Abigail.

  • I love Hannah, Katelyn, Abigail and Lillian! I'm not a big fan of the middle name choices though.

  • Thanks for the opinions so far :) It seems our first names are good, it's just a matter of matching them with middle names that we like. Fortunately we have some time yet!

  • LOVE: Abigail, Hannah

    Really like: Alice, Katelyn, Lillian, Evelyn

    Great choices :)

  • None of these really flow. They are nice names by them selves. Just not feeling them together.
