I need a baby name & I have NO ideas.
We just found out that this kiddo is a (sqeeeeeeeeeee) GIRL! Yeah!
The downside ~ I used my bestest girl name for the first baby girl almost 2 years ago & now the creative well is dry.
The problem is that I want a girly name that has a boy-ish nickname and I would like to make a cute monogram. But I'm not picky at all.
Since I know you won't post my identity or my blog on your site ~ my daughter's real name is Samantha Elysabeth (lets say) Hutchins. Her nickname is Sammi & she has sHe for a monogram (very cute on baby bags!) I want something equally cute for my second kiddo (cHa, aHh, aHa ... etc) We're southerners, monograms are put on everything & I love cute ones! I like the boyish nickname theme & that's the more important of the two to keep.
Elysabeth is 1/2 my middle name (Elyssa) and 1/2 my cousin's name (Elizabeth). I don't have any family preferences to use this time, my SIL with 5 kids used all the good ones already!
I have no clue what to use as names & my blog has managed to stay fairly anonymous so far & I would like to keep it that way ~ so I can't ask for help over there!
Any help is appreciated ... we're tapped out over here!
The first name that pops into my head is Alexandra. It's a long girly name like Samantha, with a short boyish nickname like Sam (Alex or Al), and it gives you the start of the monogram "aH", so you can have aHa or aHh if we think of an A/H middle name. I'm finding A-names easier to come up with than H-names: Alexandra Amelia Hutchins. Alexandra Abigail Hutchins. Alexandra Alyssabeth Hutchins.
Another one I like in this category is Cassandra, shortened to Cass. Cass isn't as boyish as Sam or Alex, but it's sassy. Samantha and Cassandra are nice together, and so are Sam and Cass, and I think Cassandra Hutchins sounds great. You mention cHa on your list of cute monograms, and so we'd just need an A middle name.
Another C name is Christianna, shortened to Chris. Samantha and Christianna. Sam and Chris. Christianna Hutchins.
Josephine shortened to Jo would probably be my own first choice. Samantha and Josephine. Sam and Jo is DARLING. But---monogram trouble. We've got "jH" and that doesn't go anywhere. Doing a J middle name would look cute, but it wouldn't spell anything: jHj. An O middle name would give you jHo, which could be pronounced "joe" like her nickname. But...it kind of gives you "Ho," which we may wish to avoid, and it's reminiscent of JLo.
Francesca shortened to Frank or Frankie would be cute. Samantha and Francesca. Sam and Frankie. Francesca Hutchins. But again: monogram problems.
Or, perhaps we could do Stephanie shortened to Stevie, with an E middle name to give you the same monogram. Stephanie Elise Hutchins. Samantha and Stephanie. Sam and Stevie.
