Not TTC yet but want input (girl names)

I know many of these are probably not the style of the overall board but DH & I really prefer something a little more unusual (no crazy spellings though!) and my favorites are something of French or Irish/Scottish origin (a few of these are) and have come up with these so far:

Cora, Demi, Darcy, Lola, Farrah, Lula, Maren, Arden, Noemi (not Naomi), Wren, Coco 

mn would either be Frances, Josephine or Valentine (all are family names) 

And yes, if someone had a gun to your head which would you pick? Stick out tongue

  • I like Cora, Demi, Farrah, Maren & Arden....

    My BFF had Wren as her top name for her little girl and I thought it was not cute at all...overall I like your choices though!

  • I think Farrah Josephine is pretty.
  • I'm sorry, but they are ALL horrible.  If someone had a gun to my head I would reluctantly pick Lola Josephine.

  • I love Cora! That's for sure on my list.

    Farrah is alright...but the others are nms or just weird. Please no Coco or Demi ... or Noemi...?

    So maybe Cora Valentine?

  • I love Lola and Arden - I also like Wren. I think Valentine is a nice MN

    Why do people not like Coco as a real name? It's a NN for me, but I think it's fine as a real name...

    Cora- like!

    Demi- blech

    Darcy- not bad

    Lola- cute, but doesn't strike me as a grown-up's name

    Farrah- don't like

    Lula- don't like

    Maren- has the potential to grow on me

    Arden- like!

    Noemi- no

    Wren- like!

  • my pick from your names is Maren Josephine!  that was fun :)

  • Maren Josephine.

    But I have seen it spelled Marin, so I would go with Marin Josephine.

  • I love Maren

    I like Cora, Lola and Wren

    I don't like Demi, Darcy, or Arden

    I strongly dislike Farrah, Lula, CoCo, and Noemi

    Be careful with Valentine as a middle name.  With names like CoCo, Lola, and Lula it could easily go into "stripper name" status.  I really like Maren Josephine.

  • They are all nms, but if I had to choose my favorites from the list would be Cora and Darcy. I like Josephine best for a family middle name.

  • I love Cora.  I like Darcy and Lola.  Maren is ok.  The rest are terrible, IMO. 
  • I like Cora (just wrote this on our list an hour ago..), Darcy, Lola, Noemi
  • I love Wren

    I think Frances Wren, then call her Wren.

    or Wren Josephine 

  • I like Cora, Arden and Lola!
  • Oh, I really like Arden! I don't think I'd use it, but it's very cute with any of the mn options.

    I also like Maren, and Cora is okay.

    The rest are nms. I actually really dislike Lola b/c it has some very sexual connotations that I can't reconcile with a little girl. I also can't get Copacabana out of my head! ;)

  • Lola Josephine or Lola Valentine.  I LOVE Lola!!!!  I like Cora too w/ the same middle names.  I'm not a fan of Frances.
  • My daughter's name is Cora, so I would have to go with that :)

    Her middle name is Evelyn

  • Arden Valentine

    ANYTHING but Lula Wink

  • I like your style!  My faves are Cora, Lola, Farrah, and Maren.  I like Josephine for the mn.

  • I'd choose Maren or Lola Josephine.

  • Well, since Darcy, Maren (spelled like this!), and Arden are all on my list too, I'll go with those! I also have Frances as a mn option (it's a family name for me, too) and it goes with pretty much anything.

  • Demi Valentine and Arden Josephine. <---My faves.
  • Gun to my head: Cora Josephine.

    I actually prefer Josephine as a fn. But from your list, it would either be Cora or Noemi for me. And with either, I would pick Josephine as the mn. 

  • I like Cora, Lola, and Maren the best, and I think any of the middle names would be fine with them.

  • #1 Noemi, #2 Arden, #3 Lola, #4 Maren

    I would not pick Darcy because of the Jane Austen connotation lol.

  • Wren

    Followed by: Arden, Lola, and Darcy. 

  • I love Cora! Cora Josephine is my pick.

  • I like Darcy... which is my name Wink but I spell it Darcie which takes away the Jane Austen association a little.

    Darcie Josephine sounds nice and I like Cora too.

  • wren Josephine! Love it, very sweet name :)

     I like Valentine for a middle BUT only if it is paired with one of the more serious first names. I think wren is too whimsical for it, but is really pretty with the longer josephine.
