Orvokki February 22nd, 2008 03:40 PM

These are some of my top combos. Thoughts?

Ophelia Rosamund
Lavinia Astrid
Isotta Margriet (nickname: Griet)
Cordelia Ruth
Helena Violet
Jocosa Eleanor
Cecelia Madeline
Josephine Orvokki
Eva Juliette

* Margriet is the Dutch form of Margaret.
* Orvokki: Finnish for "anemone flower".

I think they're all great, my favorites are:

Ophelia Rosamund
Isotta Margriet (though I personally prefer Margaret :wub: )
Cordelia Ruth
Helena Violet (are you saying it hel-LAY-nuh or HEL-eh-nuh?)
Cecelia Madeline (though I prefer Cecilia)
Josephine Orvokki

I don't care for Jocosa, Lavinia, Eva, or Juliette.

I love Astrid.

I think some of them seem like too much for a little baby. The only one from your list I like is Cecelia Madeline.

Orvokki February 22nd, 2008 06:45 PM

Thanks so far!

Niamh, I'm pronouncing Helena hel-LAY-nah.

Maybe, but a little baby grows into an adult. :smile: I think most of those will age well with her. And that's what nicknames are for of course.

You have great combos! I love your naming style :wub: While I'm personally not crazy about Ruth, Helena, Jocosa, and Eva, they work wonderfully in your combos.

This may be true, but you have to consider that a person spends most of his/her life as an adult. So a name that ages well is ideal (and i think your names qualify :smile: ). Imagine how awful it would be as 50 year old woman stuck with a cutesy name only fitting for a child :confused: Plus, as you mentioned, nicknames work well to alleviate the concern of an adult name on a young child.

I like:
Lavinia Astrid :inlove:
Helena Violet
Isotta Margriet
Cecilia Madeline (the spelling Cecelia looks wrong IMO)
Eva Juliette

I like Ophelia and love Rosamund, but together they are a bit much. Orvokki is a very interesting and pretty middle name, I just don't like Josephine that much.

My favorite is Eva. Very pretty. :wub:

Katherine Sarah February 23rd, 2008 06:46 AM

My favourite combo out of your list would have to be Eva Juliette. All of them are pretty but a bit too out there compared to my usual style, pretty though.

Individually i like these names from your list

Madeline
Josephine
Eva
Juliette

My favorites:
Ophelia Rosamund
Helena Violet
Cecelia Madeline (Cecelia/Cecilia Madeleine would also work well)
Eva Juliette (I prefer Juliet, but that's just a personal preference.)

I also seperately love:
Astrid
Josephine
Margaret (I don't like the pronunciation of Margriet, sorry!)

Astrid Josephine and Josephine Margaret are also favorites.
