...now we just need a baby! (Half-way there, woot!)



Mirielle Margaret

Levy Gray (pronounced "Lev-vie")


Very happy about our decisions. Reeve is a close second for a girl, but we're having a tough time with a middle name because I don't think Margaret sounds good with it. Spelling of Levy is iffy too, don't want people to think it's Levi the kids whole life. Thoughts on these?

Great choices!! I bet it feels good to have the names settled! We still haven't settled on ours.

Mirielle sounds so classic and sophisticated! Definitely timeless! I like Levy too but I don't have any advice about the spelling. Spelling it Levy makes sense for the pronunciation but since Levi is more common people might automatically assume Levi is how it is pronounced. I don't think it's a big deal though. You could ask on Nameberry; I've been looking on there for inspiration and they have forums where you can ask for advice on stuff like that.

I second Nameberry. Love that site!
I think you probably will have issues with people thinking Levy is an alternative spelling of Levi (because its so popular) ..but I don't have any ideas on how else you would spell it without it getting "clunky and long"

Love your choices though!!

Cute names! I especially like Mirielle.

Like others have said, the boy's name will likely be mispronounced and yes, it will get tiring correcting people after awhile (speaking from personal experience with my own name) but over time it also just becomes habit I really like it though!

Aww I love them! But yeah - everyone is going to pronounce Levy "Levi" when they see it; however, I don't really have any advice on alternate spellings either? If you love it, use it, just be prepared to correct people constantly and have your son give you crap about it when he is an adult I say this from experience because my mother brilliantly decided to call me by my middle name "because it flowed better" and give me the first name Merry (yes as in Christmas) which has been a PITA my whole life. I remind her of my displeasure frequently!

I second everyone's thoughts on Levy. LOVE the name though...hmmm...can you double the v or is that weird? Levvy? I'm at a loss. I also really like Mirielle.

Yup I don't think there's any way of getting around Levy and mispronunciations.

It does look too clunky with two V's. Ah well, I like it so much that we'll just deal with it Although I strongly feel that we will not be having a Levy this time around
