So, we've been discussing baby names today. We've narrowed it down to a top 3: Isla, Autumn and Norah. I LOVE Norah, but DH doesn't think it flows well with his last name. Tell me what you think. Which name do you like best?

We're also having trouble coming up with middle names. I like Autumn Elizabeth but DH is sort of indifferent to Elizabeth and I like Norah Jane, but he's also not so sure about that one. I have zero ideas for Isla.

So, which is best (I'll add in his last name so you guys can see how it flows).

Isla _____ Butera
Autumn (Elizabeth?) Butera
Norah (Jane) Butera

I like Autumn, but I also think that Isla Elizabeth has a nice ring to it.

I like them all, but love the way Autumn Elizabeth sounds. Good luck deciding!

Just remember that Isla is pronounced 2 different ways depending on who you ask.

The original Scottish way to pronounce it is Eye-la, which is how we're going to. We were thinking about nicknaming her Izzie if we decide to name her that.

Thanks for your input, ladies!

I love Isla and Norah. Not a fan of Autumn though.
I think as far as flow with the last name Isla works best, but Norah isn't bad. I personally think so long as the first and middle name flow, who cares about the last name.

I like all three choices! It was hard for me to pick from that list! I went with Norah, but no matter what you choose, you'll have a great name. I think Autumn is my least fave of the three, but again, I still like it!

Well, I think DH has officially nixed Norah, even though it's my favorite (telling him that my mom and best friend voted for Norah too didn't help. boo.)

I think we are seriously leaning toward naming her Isla Rose and calling her Izzie for short. I like it because it's a traditional Scottish name and my family is Scottish, so she'll have a bit of her heritage in her name from my side as well as DHs.

I do like the way Autumn Elizabeth sounds, but I LOVE Isla! It is such an uncommon name. I don't know that I'd pair it with Elizabeth though...Elizabeth just seems to "plain" for Isla, if you know what I mean.
