Hi everyone,

DH and I have a list of names we like, but so far the following are our top choices.

Girl: Dylynne Elizabeth (After my DH and my moms name is Lynne. My middle name is Elizabeth)
Boy: Briston Michael (Briston is so different and I think strong, Michael is DH middle name.)

What do you ladies think?

Your husband's name is Dylan and you're going to name your daughter Dylynne? Are they suppose to be pronounced the same way? It's a very masculine name and spelling it wrong doesn't make it feminine. Briston is too made-up for my tastes, sorry.

I really don't like the look or sound of Dylynne - it looks way too made up and there are too many "y's" in there. I think you can play with other combos of the names... Lynn could be part of her first name without it sounding so masculine and made up.

If you're trying to include Lynn, I like the above idea... like Katelyn or Madeline (they wouldn't have to use the same spelling, but still have the same sound - for instance my mom's name is nicki and I'm thinking nicole as a poss.) Also, the spelling of "Dylynne" could be hard for her, not just as a child, she'd have to spell out her name to everyone her whole life.
Not sure about Briston, it kind of reminds me of "brisket" or "bristol" for some reason. What about Braxton?

Thanks girls. Yeah I wasnt sure about all the Y's in Dylynne. I guess it does sound kinda funny. Thank you all for your honesty.

Briston is a mixed bag. I really like it, but it seems like half I tell it to like it and the other half hate it. hahaha. It's still really early so it will be fun to see what I end up with.

I will try to think of other ways to include Lynne. Thanks alot again!!

I personally LOVE Dylan for a girl....but am not sure about your spelling. I realize that you want to specifically use the 'Lynne' spelling though so that's tough....

Other "Lynne" suggestions:

Irelyn
Maitlyn
Gracelyn
Madelyn
Adalyn
Ashlyn

All of these could be played with to be spelt to your liking...

I think it would be really cute to name your daughter after your husband, but I don't know if I'd want to have two people with the same name, ywim? But there are a lot of people that do that, so it's up to you guys!! Just something to think about.

Briston is really different.. and I do think it sounds strong, but I think I prefer Braxton. How about Tristan? I love Tristan- I wish my husband would let me use that one!

Something that I've been learning lately (and still need to grasp completely because people's opinions matter a lot to me )-- you won't be able to find a name that everybody likes. If you and your husband both like it a lot and agree on it- that's the most important thing!

Also, you have to consider who is giving you the comment on your name. Think about what names they like. They might have a completely different style of names then yourself, ywim? There are a lot of people that only like traditional, old-fashioned names. They probably aren't going to give you the most positive comments on your "trendy" names. But then there's some people that love the "trendy" unique names and they might LOVE your name choices. Just keep that in mind, too
