DH is the kind of guy who doesn't like to discuss names like... EVER. Because NOTHING is good enough for HIS kid.
Well, I THINK I may have a name that I can get him to agree on once she's born (because no way will he commit until the papers to sign are in hand! LOL)
Elena Viola (pronounced Vee-oh-lah, the Italian way, for my grandmother.)
Other middle name option is Victoria, which is one of my grandmas middle names (Viola Carmel Victoria) but I love Viola - it's much less common and so spunky and I love the flow with Elena.
Other first name options are Victoria or Veronica if DH shoots down Elena when she's born. Though, Veronica Viola or Victoria Viola might be a bit too much of the V but I don't think they sound BAD together.
Last name sounds like And-ress.
She'll be joining big sister Allison Kathleen (Allie or Allie Kat.)
If we go with Elena, obviously the nn Ellie is out because we sometimes call Allison Allie!
But possibly we'd go with Elle or Lane or Lanie or Lena. Or we'll just call her Elena.
Why not? Not every name NEEDS a nickname. I'm Caroline and have never been Carrie or Carol.
My sis in law is Jennifer and very rarely is called Jen, never Jenny.
I think this might be it. It feels like it could be the right name. So excited to maybe have this settled!
(Ha! Watch, she's born and DH hates the name and I'm back to the list!!!)
53 (or so) days and I'll report back!
