We are having a girl in June and have a name list to take to hospital. Today we added Harper to the list, if we go with this name she will be Harper Isabel Soleil. This is not a popular name where i am from (NQ Australia) which is why we love it! However it is also very big in our culture to have a nickname the only thing i can think of is "Harp" or "Harps" anything else?? Opinions on Harper Isabel Soleil?

The other names on our list are

Lyra Isabel Soleil (Lo)

Lucinda Evelyn Soleil (Lucy)

Aria Evelyn Soleil (Ari)

Her older sister is Elody Sophie Allira

Your list is very nice. I'd probably just call her "H" for short if I needed a nn. Congrats on your second little girl! Keep us posted!

It might be a bit of a reach, but I think I'd be apt to tag Harper with "Harry" in that kind of "isn't it ironic that this little girl has an old man nickname?" kind of way.

I have heard of Harry as a nn for Harper but DP wont go for it :P I dont think i could do "H" because our daughter is mainly "Elle" which is L not Ellie :P L and H is too much i think. Lyra is still my number one but it is number three for DP.. thanks for the input

I understand. Other thoughts are Hays/Hayes and Percy.

I am right there with Kristen in that I think that Lyra goes perfect with Elody!! Harper isn't my style, really.

Glad to help! I bet Elody is excited. Let us know when her sister arrives.

I was also thinking you could do Hari, like Mata Hari.

I also like Lyra with Elody.
