      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 😢

      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 love Layla, but you might think they’re too much like Lydia. They do sound good together though .

    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.

      That is SO cute! I love it!

    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.
