We were a little worried a couple weeks ago, b/c we are keeping her name private from family/friends until she's here, and only telling random strangers, but the strangers we told, all said "oh, that's nice"...we haven't gotten any "WOW" comments yet...like, "Oh, that's beautiful" or "Aww, that's such a nice name". So I was concerned maybe her name isn't pretty at all...but after going through two days of "what do you think of this name" convos, we just KNOW this is her name...I can't even picture her anything else.

But now we are questioning the spelling and also her middle name. So let me know what your honest opinions are. I really want to start her block letters for above her crib, but i need to figure out her spelling first.

As of now it is: Alyssa June

What do you ladies think of spelling it: Alissa (Hubby thinks maybe it looks softer??) I'm worried it looks too close to "Alicia"--I don't know why.

So let me know about the spelling of the first name. And then which middle name do you like better:

Alyssa June
Alyssa Nicole (my middle name, not that it matters)
Alyssa Grace

Alissa June
Alissa Nicole
Alissa Grace

All work nice w/our last names (at least we think )

Thanks

I really like Alyssa June. I think it's adorable, and I've known a couple people with the same first name that have spelled it with an "i" so I think the "y" in there is unique

I like Alyssa June. I'm not a fan of the Alissa spelling.

I like it with the Y too, and I like Grace as a middle name but that's mainly because it's what I wanted for Lily's middle name but DH won out with Helene (after my grandma Helen who passed).

I definitely like the "y" better and I love how Alyssa Nicole sounds, but I also love Alyssa June. June is going to be the middle name for our little girl (Elizabeth June) after my Grandma who passed away 2 years ago.

And, honestly, as long as YOU like the name, and it's not CRAZY weird (which obviously it's not) I wouldn't get hung up on how random strangers react!

I like Alyssa June the best also. One of my best friend's daughter is named Alyssa and it's spelled the same way. I think it looks better that way.

I like Alyssa Grace. I like how Alyssa is spelled. I once tutored a girl named Alyssa and I just loved her name

I like Alyssa June the best also. I don't care for the i spelling, mostly because some may mispronounce her name as a-lisa.

I actually find it comical to see people's reactions to the names we've chosen for both of our sons. We realize they're unique and not everyone shares our taste, so it's just funny to watch them try to come up with something nice to say. It's usually, "Oh....." or "That's different" I just smile...

I LOVE the name Alyssa! Actually it was one of my top picks, but DH liked Alexis better (too bad there isn't twin girls in there...they'd definitely be Alyssa & Alexis! ) I like Alyssa Nicole the best (keep the y its cute!) Of course I may be biased on the Nicole because we are naming ours Alexis Nicole! Don't worry about what other people think. As long as you and DH LOVE the name you picked out for YOUR child, that's all that matters! I found out through the grapevine that my SIL was talking very badly about our choice of name (said it was a stripper name! ) but me and DH love it and don't think so so it doesn't matter what his stupid sister thinks! I think she's a witch with a capital B so there! You can't please everyone. Just go with what you want because you will regret it if you change it for someone else.
