Hello all, I'm thinking of choosing the name Sophia Alyssa for my baby (Alyssa being the middle name.) I've always loved it and it works pretty well with our surname too which is double-barrelled. However, I'm also getting more and more tempted by Esme India. Any views, thoughts would be kindly received!

Thank you.

By the way Esme Bluebell is a lovely name!

OK, well never mind, must have mislaid my sense of humour today, sorry!

Thanks zen! No worries Capital!

Any views on Amber Sophia?

Amber Sophia is lovely.

Thank you, my mother in law suggested it today and i just though "ah that's really pretty!"

I love both - can't you have twins?

zenoushka Wed 28-Jul-10 15:06:14

Haha I wish - unfortuntely just the one this time. Perhaps next time!

Hey, I've got a Madeleine Amber - I reckon we're soulmates zenoushka.. grin

zenoushka Wed 28-Jul-10 16:26:10

Ah Madeleine Amber is a beautiful name - we are indeed soulmates!

Sophia Alyssa is nice, and Esme is pretty. I think India is a silly name, tbh.

India maybe a silly name in your opinion, but in this case, I think I think it's rather nice with it's history.

Also like Es-mee rather than Es-mae..just don't like the maaaaae sound.

Thanks - i like the history of using India! I also much prefer the Es-mee pronunciation than the Es-mae one.

Love India so my vote would be Esme India, although not keen on Esme really but do prefer it to Sophie.

I don´t like Esme, but I love India.

BelligerentGhoul Mon 09-Aug-10 17:48:54

Love Esme; not fond of India (but see it at least has personal meaning to you and dp, so makes sense to use it). Don't like Sophia Alyssa.

Esme Sophia India? Normally I would steer clear of India, but you have a genuine link.

I think Alyssa is far too frilly, to the point of fluffiness, and a bit Disneyish.

Kathleen123 Tue 10-Aug-10 11:22:11

I like the name Amber.

CreepyFunbags Tue 10-Aug-10 12:58:12

Hmm, both nice. I think you should see what she looks like and save the other name for number two!

zenoushka Tue 08-Jan-13 22:50:19

So in the end we chose Anya Jasmine. She just didn't look like a Sophia or an Esme!

Willowisp Mon 21-Jan-13 11:25:55

Nice to hear how it turned out !

Ham69 Tue 22-Jan-13 07:38:28

Lovely name. Congratulations!

Beautiful name and I much prefer it to your earlier ideas grin
