Mentioned in the most recent name post that I am stumbling over the name I like most if the baby is a girl. I like the names Matilda, Lucy, and Natalie. I think Lucy Matilda sounds nice if we went that route. I'm not sure why I keep getting tripped up over my favorite name, but I am. Maybe a good MN would help?
What would you pick for a MN for:
My last name is 2 syllables starting with B with a long A sound. I like MJ as initials but Matilda Jane (which was my pick before) seems kind of put on to me, not very authentic. My old middle name was Anne and I thought it was more of a placeholder, and I dropped it when I got married and changed my name. I like June but um, the baby will be born in October. I like flowers, nature names, historical/role model names.. though not Rose. I'm more of a tropical flower gal. Islands and water have significance to us.
im not a fan of those types of names. I was gonna say Matilda Jane was a line of clothes, and when i hear the name Matilda I think of that as well as some character in a movie, but I can't place it now.
Awww Melissa Lou. I have an aunt named Mary Lou and we call her Aunt Lou, I think it's so cute! One of the names in the running for a girl would be LILOU for me. I saw it somewhere online and just thinks its a cute european name.
I was going to suggest Rose until I read you didn't like it LOL! It was tbe first name that came to mind. I can't think of anything that flows as well at the moment!
I like Rose a lot but not for me, you know? Doesn't feel right! Plus I think that's what Heath Ledger's kid's name is? That would be no bueno I like Lily as far as short flower names go.
I appreciate all the suggestions! If anybody has some more send them my way. So far I think I like Jean and Lou/ise, but I know my DH will find them too old fashioned. Joy sounds like a good fit! Matilda is German and derived from battle/strength/might, and Joy is a nice counter balance to it.
btw, Jen - Matilda is a character in one of my favorite Roald Dahl books. There was a movie that came out about it which was very cute, also. I loved the book as a kid because like Matilda, I loved to read and got a lot of strength from knowledge and a sense of self. I think it has a nice ring to it and isn't super common.
