Baby Names

Girl List

I have posted about some of these names before, but DH and I are getting nowhere when it comes to making a decision! Please give your opinion on each of the names below. I really would like something easy to say and easy to spell (my name is neither and it is annoying). Something not super popular either. Big brother is Calvin.

Adelia/Delia 

Anastasia (nn Anna)

Anna

Evelyn (nn Evie)

Gwyneth (nn Gwen)

Ivy

Lorelei/Lorelai (nn Rory)

Re: Girl List

  • My favorites on your list are Ivy and Delia.  I think they pair best with Calvin.

     

    I think Anna and Evelyn are creeping up in popularity (but are beautiful names) and Lorelei, Gweneth and Anastasia are a bit heavy handed for my personal taste.

  • My vote is for Anastasia, hands down.  It's my top choice for a girl.

    After that, I really like Anna and Ivy.

    I like Lorelei, but I dislike Rory as a nickname.

    Evelyn is overdone at this point.

    I just don't care for Gwyneth and Adelia/Delia.

  • I like Ivy.

    Anastasia reminds me of 50 shades, sorry.

  • I love your names but Ivy jumps out at me! Very easy to say and spell and its sort of a fun bonus that Ivy & Calvin share the "V"

  • Adelia/Delia - I like it. Have you considered Cordelia?

    Anastasia - Love it! However, it does remind me of the '50 Shades' Trilogy. ;)

    Anna - Love it! It pairs nicely with Calvin.

    Evelyn - Like it.

    Gwyneth - Like it.

    Ivy - Love it!

    Lorelei/Lorelai - I love the Lorelei spelling, but it's so Gilmore Girls...

  • If you want something easy to say and easy to spell, I would cross off Adelia, Anastasia, and Lorelei from the list.  Not a fan of them anyway.

    I love Anna and Evelyn nn Evie.  I like Gwyneth nn Gwen also.

    Not a fan of Ivy.

    My vote would be Evelyn nn Evie.

  • Thanks for the responses so far. The 50 shades reference for Anastasia doesn't bother me. I haven't read the books and I just don't care. My hang up is that it sounds a little too princessy to me.

    I also like the "v" connection ivy and Evelyn have with Calvin, as another poster pointed out. Our last name starts with V also.

    Anna seems a little boring to me but is DH favorite.
  • I like Evelyn the most.

    I can't Ivy....reminds me of poison ivy.

    I would say this for spelling.  I suck at it and don't know if I would get these right.

    I like the other 3, Like Evelyn nn Evie the best!

  • Great list!  I really like Delia, Anna, Gwyneth, Ivy, and Lorelei.  I do think you'll have pronunciation/spelling issues with Lorelei though.  I like Calvin and Delia, Calvin and Anna, and Calvin and Ivy the best.

     ETA - just saw your post that Anna is your DH's favorite.  There must be something about that name...it's my DH's favorite too, and while I like it, I worry that it's too boring too.

  • Ivy is DD, so that's my fave. Also like Gwenyth, but prefer Gwendolyn. Mostly I love the nn Gwen tho.
  • I like Anna, Ivy, and Lorelei best. Evelyn is okay too. Adelia/Delia, Anastasia, and Gwyneth are my least favorite of the bunch.

    A close friend of mine has a two year old whos name is Anastasia. I think it fits her very well. She goes by Annie as well.
