How does this sound

It's a girl :( wanted a boy but my baby is healthy, I am thinking of Malia Nichelle. How does it sound?

Re: How does this sound

  • to me it sounds like you mixed up the letters of the first name and it should be Nalia Michelle. I'm not even sure how to say either names
  • I've always loved Malia since I first met one 5 years ago. Now it's predicted to be very popular because of the Obamas. But I still like it. Nachelle sounds like a made-up version of Michelle.

  • I agree the letters seem mixed up, sorry
  • Malia is good, Nichelle is awful.

  • Nichelle is really bad. Like someone with a stuffed up nose saying Michelle.

  • I would pick one or the other - having her first name be Malia is fine (although I agree it is going to get very popular very fast) but to have Nichelle, too? way too close to Michelle, and then you have two Obama names. I'd pick one. And Nichelle is nms anyways. It looks like a type.

    sorry, I meant to say it looks like a typo.

  • thanks for the opinions my middle name is Nicole I wanted something with a N bu I will continue to think
  • I've know a couple of Nichelle's it's an ok name to me.

  • It's way too Obama with Malia and Michelle.?
  • Malia is cute.  Don't like Nichelle, though.  Why not Malia Nicole?

    This.

    ditto

  • Malia Nicole sounds cute! ?There's also Malia Noelle. ?I keep wanting to say Nadia or Nora, but they don't work with Malia. ?

    I agree - Nichelle is weird, especially next to the M for Malia. ?I love Malia though.

    i agree with this. it sounds like you're naming your daughter after the obamas with a 'spin' on the names.

  • Malia, yes. Nichelle, no.


    Blank!
  • How about Malia Nicolette?

    This.

    Ditto!?

  • Yeah, it sounds very Obama-ish to me.  Not that there's anything wrong with the names in general, IMO, but anyone who sees it for the next 4 years will think you've named your child after the Obamas.
  • Malia Nicole sounds great.

    Nichelle is terrible.  It looks like a typo.

  • I agree that you should keep Malia and give Nicole as the middle name.
