So screwed. — The Bump
Baby Names

So screwed.

Expecting a girl and DH and I can't find a single name we like. DS is Cadon. We don't hate the name Kennedy, and by don't hate I mean we don't cringe at the sound. I used to like the name Addison, but I think it sounds strange with Cadon. Help me. Please.

Re: So screwed.

  • Kyla. Isla. Adeline. Ava. Taylor. Madeline. Mia. Morgan. Fiona. Daphne. Violet. Maeve. Clara. Claire.

    Naf of Kennedy or Addison

  • I just searched Kennedy on nameberry for similar names for you and it shows the meaning is : misshapen head.
    Now I dislike the name more than I already did.
    Addison makes me think of the horribly sad disease.
    Adeline is much better, but super popular.

    Misshapen head. =)) Naturally.
    With Adeline, are you pronouncing it like the name "Lynn" or like the word "Line"?

    ETA: I'm not super worried about popularity, considering I can't handle youneek names. Any name worth having is probably going to be fairly popular, I think I'm alright with that.

    I pronounce it with as "line", and even though I constantly bitch on here about having a name that's spelled wrong for how it's pronounced, I'd rather see Adeline or Adaline over Adalynn/Adelynn any day. 

    I feel like the "lynn" spelling, looks, hickish.

    I completely agree that it looks "hickish". Nice description, by the way. ;) I like the name Adeline pronounced with "Lynn", but obviously the spelling is an issue. I also think it sounds strange with Cadon.

    None of them are calling me... I told you I'm screwed! Lol.
  • I would never pronounce Adeline as Adelynn. It's a pretty name, but with choosing that spelling, you'll be setting her up for a lifetime of correcting people.

  • What about Adelaide nn Addie?

    I agree, unfortunately. Adelaide reminds me of lemonade or Gatorade :-S , though it's a lovely name.

  • My BIL and SIL just had a baby girl. Their son is named Cayden, and the baby's name is Devon. Just thought that might appeal to you since your sons have the same name.
  • Carlisle is a very pretty name and goes nicely with Cadon.
    KaaaaaatieRN
  • Hmm, on our girl's list we have June, Ada, Rose, Willa, Hazel, Cecily, Maren and Olive. Other suggestions: Grace, Lilah, Alice, Josephine (Josie), Hannah, Rhiannon, Bridget

    My furchildren, Dorothy and Johnny :)
  • When you day 'DS' do you mean you're son? (Sorry, new here - I don't know the lingo)
    If so, why does your girl's name need to go with Cadon?
    image
  • Hmm, all three names you gave in your OP included an N and a D, so maybe that's the direction you should try?

    Cassidy

    Delaney

    Eden

    Holland

    Hudson

    Kendall

    Madison

    Nolan

    Sydney


    Some other names that include just one or the other, but may be along the same lines as the sound you're going for:

    Aubrey

    Audrey

    Eden

    Emery

    Hadley

    Lena

    Leda

    Lydia

    Reagan
