Hello!
I am needing some help on a girl name.
The names my husband and I have agreed on are:

Savannah
Presley
Elaina

Which one goes well with Harrison? Any other suggestions?
Thanks so much

Elaina for sure, though I do prefer the spelling Elena. It's pretty and feminine, and different too.


Presley Harrison kind of sounds like an old man news anchor or something. I definitely don't get a girl-ish vibe at all from that one. And, well, Elvis.

Savannah is not my cup of tea personally, but I suppose it's a fine name anyway.


Francesca
Maya
Annabel
Georgia
Arianna
Ada
Caroline
Ruby
Lola
Audrey
Susannah
Fiona
Adeline
June
Olive
Noelle
Amira
Scarlett
Pearl
Sidony
Justine
Liana / Leona
Isla

Thank you for responses!
My favorite is also Elaina. I need to clarify though...Harrison is my sons name not our last name. I am looking for a feminine name that fits with my sons name. I would also like to use the middle names Ann or Lynn but would like something a little different...maybe a name that has Ann or Lynn in it.

Out of those names I like Savannah, with Harrison. Elaina is VERY popular right now!

Actually, Elena/Elaina is not nearly as popular as Savannah. Savannah has been in top 50 girls names for over 10 years! It is currently #40. Elena is #195 and the spelling Elaina is #462. So there's really no comparison. This is from ssa.gov.

I like Elaina the best. BUT... I think Ann or Lynn wouldn't be the best mn's. They both repeat letters/sounds in the fn.

It can vary so much from state to state. My son's name is Wyatt, and it was #33 in Colorado in 2009, but only #60 in 2009 overall. (when we chose the name in 2006, it was #82 overall, so it's gotten a lot more common unfortunately!)

Okay... now knowing where Harrison is coming from (I was using it as a last name). I like Savannah Lynn, Elaina Lynn and Presley Ann.
