Okay...I'm only 6 weeks along, so I have no idea whether I'll be having a girl, but I REALLY want a girl, so I'm focusing on girl names!
My favorite (and pretty much only) choice is Kenlee Nacole. The first name is a combination of my brother's name (Kent), my grandfather's middle name (Lee). The NA spelling in Nacole comes from wanting to incorporate my grandmother's name (Nadine), but I Nadine sounds so old fashioned, and I thought it was a cute spelling, as opposed to the traditional Nicole.
What do you think? DH doesn't hate it, but doesn't love it either. I'm trying to make it grow on him by just saying "little Kenlee Nacole" everytime I refer to the baby, but he's still going to make me make a list of other options...
That's neat you were able to combine Kent and Lee to get a name you liked.
I really dislike the spelling of Nacole, even though I think it is sweet you want to incorporate Nadine, I would just either use the name Nadine or drop the idea altogether. I guess the nicest way to say it is that spelling it Nacole looks like someone who can't spell.
I agree with everyone else. I like Kenlee but although the reasons for the spelling are really nice, I just don't care for Nacole at all. I really think Kenlee Nadine is cute and original. I like that even better.
If I had those names to work with I would probably use Kinley Dianne. I mean, Kinley still obviously comes from Ken and Lee but then she'll have her own spelling, kwim? I agree with you on not liking Nadine at all. I think that using the middle name Dianne would get around that pretty well (rearrange the letters in Nadine) ... you could spell it Diane but I've seen it spelled Dianne before and that would incorporate all the letters.
