      I love the name Stella! Such a beautiful name – so timeless and classic, but you don’t hear it all the time. Great choice!

    I have an Amelia and Norah!! I loved Nora but preferred it with the H on the end. People are already spelling her name wrong when they write it down 🥴 I of course knew this was a possibility…hopefully she doesn’t hate me for it later on 😄 I’m now trying to decide on names for twin girls we are expecting. We have decided on Lydia but can’t find one we can both agree on to go with it. I love Freya but he doesn’t 😢

    • Erica

      I love ALL these names – I totally agree that Norah looks better than Nora. I feel the same way about Carah and Farrah (two more names I love). I love the H! Lydia is a cool name that is making a comeback! Freya is really topping the charts right now, but I’ve never seen it there before – so it could just be trending. Another name I’ve been seeing is Aviana, which I really love, too, and Cyra – which is gorgeous. I’d love to know what name you decide on!

            I read the names hoping to see my late mother’s name, she passed a year ago February. Her father named her, Violet Gaye. I had asked where her father had taken her name from. She only knew of her Aunt Gaye. My mother always answered to Gaye, I love that her name Violet is on your list. Mom was born in 1939 and she is missed.
            Her elder sister’s name – Delphia Marie – neither names on your list. The other sisters name was Hazel.

    I am due with our first in September, and we will be naming her Cynthia Emogene. Cece for short. I really love it! I feel like it has kind of a southern belle tone to it. Hubby isn’t a fan, but that’s why we came up with Cece for a nickname, which I also love. I’m sure people will always mistake her for a Cecilia, but life goes on lol.

    why don’t you have any K names? i’ve been searching for some and i can’t find any. it’s like people think K isn’t a letter

    • Erica
      November 10, 2022 / 10:16 pm

      That’s an interesting perspective! Maybe I’ll do just a K name post to see how many I can round up 🙂

    Our sweet perfect baby girl was named Hattie Dale. She lived 22 days on our side of earth before going to Heaven to wait for us. Your note next to Hattie made my eyes swell and my heart melt. Our world does need more Hattie’s. They are strong and move mountains.

    • Erica
      January 10, 2023 / 10:33 am

    • Erica

    Love me some vintage names. I have an Agatha, twins Alice & Virginia and a Lucia. Also an angel baby girl we named Clementine after my great grandmother who had wanted her name used but no one was brave enough.

    Pregnant again and if it’s another girl we only have her middle name chosen—Regina.

    • Erica
      February 16, 2024 / 11:34 am

      These are all beautiful names. I especially like Lucia. I think Clara Regina would be a beautiful combination. I’m always surprised by how rare the name Clara is! I hope you’ll come back to tell me which one you picked. Congrats on your pregnancy 🙂

      • Erica
        March 27, 2024 / 9:55 am

        You make a great point. Elizabeth was my grandmother’s name, so it’s close to my heart. Ill need to add it in 🙂
