I give you girls honesty (sometimes harsh honesty, I know ) and now I'm in your position.
So give me all you've got!

Me and SO were talking tonight and we decided for sure what we are going to use for either gender.
He actually told me that he wants to call it Julian if it's a boy and we both agreed on Dahlia if it's a girl. (Yay! I get my Jules!)

I need you girls to tell me any and all complaints about both complete names.
Please bring to my attention any teasing potential that you see. I really want the best names possible.
These are the spellings, though. I'm not into kreatyve spellings.


Dahlia Émilie Juliet and Julian David Leander

(Pronunciations are: Doll-ya A-me-Lee Jewel-E-et and Jewel-ian Dave-id Lee-and-err, just in case you need them.)

Thank you girls so, so much. I really need and appreciate this.

Dahlia Émilie Juliet

This one is okay.....im not to hot on the juliet, but i'm not understanding, are you going with two middle names?



Julian David Leander

And this one i absolutly LOVE Julian and Leander. But not hot on David....where did you get David from? is it a family name or something? just seems weird that you put david in with Julian & Leander.

I think Julian Leander sounds great.!

Dahlia Émilie Juliet

I like this name but until you pointed out the pronounciation I was saying it as Dah-lee-ah not Doll-ya thats the only nitpick I have about the name...I love Emilie and Juliet

Julian David Leander

I personally am not very fond of Julian...it's just not something I would use but it's not a bad name, the same goes for David and Leander is just adorable

Dahlia Émilie Juliet -- Very pretty with your pronounciation, BUT I have thought it was pronounced DAL-ya (like Dal in Dallas) for awhile now. I'd say go for it, as long as you're okay with dumb people like me mis-prouncing it = )

Julian David Leander- I used to love Julian until my hubby said he hated it. He thinks it sounds like a wimpy boys name. I still like it though!

Haha, it is a family name. It's Jesse's dad's name. Leander is because Jesse's middle name is Lee (which I hate), so I used Leander and it makes him happy. I love it aswell. Yep, two middle names.

You're a doll. My SO says Julian is wimpy too, but I guess he's getting over it. I don't mind people mispronouncing it, I just hope that not everyone mispronounces it, for her sake.

I like both combos, except that they have 2 middle names.

I would prefer just Dahlia Emilie or Dahlia Juliet and Julian Leander.
