HELP - last minute second thoughts!!!
Mon, 08-16-2010 - 2:33pm
HELP! My wife and I FINALLY agreed on Viviana Lena for our baby girl, due TOMORROW, but now we are both having second thoughts! It could just be the pressure of announcing the name to our friends and family but we'd LOVE any suggestions any of you have. We plan on keeping Lena as the middle name, for my wife's aunt who raised her but passed away right before we met. Last name begins in O, if that helps. We are ok with androgynous names but would like to stay below the top 300. Not crazy about popular nicknames so unique names that shorten to "Ella" and such probably won't work for us. Thanks in advance!

It's just cold feet! Almost everyone goes through second thoughts right before or after the birth. Viviana Lena is gorgeous. Good luck!

If you have loved the name for awhile then I would stick with it.

It can be very hard to commit to a name. It really is a big decision. The good thing is that there are plenty of options there that are equally nice. I think Viviana Lena is a very nice name that you can announce with confidence. I will give you some others to compare to Viviana, though, and if it still seems the best, you can move ahead confidently.

Amaris Lena

Arielle Lena

Audra Lena

Aurelia Lena

Blythe Lena

Calliope Lena

Carys/Cerys Lena
