Well, DH has crumbled and said I can name the baby whatever I want since I am using Garnet as the middle name at his insistance, and since he literally hates every name but Amy. Here are my faves, WDYT?

Jemima- My number one choice, but I think DH would still veto this one. I'm still a little hesitant to use it...She would be called Jemma.

Beatrix- (BEE-a-triks) I love this name and think Bea would be a cute nn.

Aviva- gorgeous, means "spring" in Hebrew.

Amalia- (ah-MAH-lee-ah) I love this name, but fear DH will shorten it to "Amy," as he has said that he would. Have I mentioned that I hate the name Amy? (no offence intended, its just nmsaa)

Lilias- (lih-lee-us) nn would be Lily

Clara, Leila, and Emmeline these names are pretty, and I like them, but they are way too popular (or have popular cousins) for my taste. They are also the names that DH hates the least.

Gemma- I love this name and DH doesn't hate it completely, but I think Gemma Garnet is way to matchy and cutesy.


So, what do you ladies think?

I like Clara the best, and it isn't popular in my area. I'm not really fond of most of the names but if I had to list my top 3 they would probably be:

1. Clara
2. Leila-- spelled Layla or Laila though
3. Amalia-- though I definitely prefer Amelia. If it were Amelia, I would have placed it as #1 instead of Clara.

I really like Lilias, Clara and Beatrix in that order. I would avoid Amalia if you dislike Amy. I'm not a fan of Gemma or Jemima (the maple syrup/Aunt Jemima) association is just too strong, IMO. I like the sound of Aviva but I dislike the look of it for some reason. Leila is lovely but I agree that it seems to be gaining in popularity. I still really like Isla!

My #1 vote would obviously be Eliora or 'Liora'.
I do love Beatrix and Aviva is fabulous. Would you call her Ava?

I love Eliora, but DH threatened to call her Eeyore, and I know he would. I can't do that to a child.

I don't think we would call Aviva "Ava" because the prononciations don't match. Its not "ay-veev-ah" is "ah-veev-ah" Its also way to popular here, as it was the #2 name given last year at our local hospital. If we used a nn, it would be "vee-vee" (with no written form) or "vee-va"

Jemima- I am not fond of this one at all. I keep thinking Aunt Jemima!

Beatrix- (BEE-a-triks) Very cute! Beatrix Garnet is adorable!!

Aviva- nms - It reminds me of some brand name.

Amalia- Hmmm, not sure abou this. I prefer Amelia.

Lilias- nms, mainly because I am not a fan of any form of Lily, not really sure why???

Clara, Leila, and Emmeline - i like all 3, but don't love them and they are a little popular like you said. Clara is my favorite of the three.

Gemma- Love it! Not sure about Garnet as a mn though.

I like Amalia the best, but I think that I would go with one of the names that DH hates least and out of those I like Clara best.

Just wondering and I'm liking Beatrix more and more.

The Eeyore thing is killing me. Your DH is mean like my BF. He said that if I used 'Graham', he would call him 'Cracker'. =(
