I used to post often on this board, but haven't been around for awhile. We are now expecting our eighth child, and we just found out it's a girl.
Our other kids names are:
Since all of our girl names end in "a", this little girl needs a similar sounding name. I'm thinking of Amelia Rose, but calling her Amelie (German name--AH-me-lee). The pronunciation will be a stickler at times (what? Emily?), but I don't mind. My experience with other children I know who have unusual sounding names is that people pick up the pronunciations quickly.
My question is, do you like Amelia/Amelie with my other children's names? Are there other names I should consider? Like I said, the formal name should end in an "a," but I am looking for names that can be shortened to cute nicknames. Our Sophia goes by Sophie.
Thanks for the help!!
