We are trying to decide between a few names for baby girl coming in Oct & wanted to get some outsiders advice.
Last name Alexander. Potential middle name, Gray.
We thought we were sure it was gonna be a boy, so we were leaning towards Frank. However when we found out it was a girl, we somewhat jokingly started calling her Frankie, but it’s kinda stuck. Are we just setting her up to be picked on? We would make it her official name (not a nick name) as I don’t like Francesca or Frances, etc.
Other options are Eleanor, as I love the sound of Ella Alexander. But considering I don’t LOVE planning to use a nickname ahead of time… should we just forget Eleanor and go straight to Ella for official name? Benefits of Eleanor - coincidently a family name. And I like “Lenny” if Ella didn’t fit.
Also like Ellison, potential for Ella nickname as well. But wondering if it’s too trendy.
Any thoughts just for fun?
