Please help! My husband and I are expecting baby #2 and daughter #2 in early March and cannot decide on a name. Our 1st daughter is Alyssa Semiya (Sa-mee-yah). It was very easy naming our 1st, we had always liked the name Alyssa and once we found out the baby was a girl, it was automatic. The middle name Semiya means “Incomparable” and had to be chosen after she was born and had to be an Indian name since that is our culture. It will be the same for this baby regarding the middle name. But we still need a first name. Our only criteria are: we don’t want a popular, overused name and it has to be something that goes with Alyssa but not rhymey.
Names that we like and are considering but don’t love:
Melina – this is our top choice at the moment
Elena / Alayna / Elayna – not sure which spelling we should go with
Aleina / Aleena / Eleena – same thing here, not sure of the spelling
Lauryn – I like but hubby doesn’t
Can you help with any other suggestions?
Thank you so much!
My favorites from your list are Melina and Melayna. Alyssa and Alayna seem too similar to me, as do Alyssa and Aleena.
