DH says he hates all girls names ending in -a

Apart from Sarah. Which ends in an "h".

Damn, our tastes do not converge. I started a thread a while ago - Claudia Vivienne or Cecilia Maud - and he thinks both are poncy.

So I suggested Louisa - but he only likes Louise. He also suggested Jane and Alice (Alice is okay).

How can this be a sensible stance? Most girls names end in -a, including mine.

Sorry for posting here - the baby names topic is covered in football spam. I'll move the thread when all the spam is gone.

What about Emme or Hattie?

Esme

Are Hattie and Emme short for Harriet and Emmeline?

Result! I just asked him if he likes Elena and he mumbled that it's okay. He was doing something so he may not have been paying attention though.

Update: had a scan and they are 70% sure it's a girl. So am back looking at girls names.

What about Elsa?

Lovely name without being too frilly.

I love the name Vivienne. So beautiful. I love it so much I named one of our cats that. Call her Vivi sometimes, as it is fitting as she is lucky to be alive. Impregnated very young and then dumped with four kittens. Now she is chubby and sticks close to home.

Beatrix is lovely too. I have a grandson named Henry. His siblings are Sam and Kate, twins. I had a hard time just calling her Kate as a baby. I wanted something added on, like Katelynn.

If he likes Sarah, how about Leah?

I'm the opposite.

Like Louisa, Amelia, Sophia or Julia a lot.

Don't like Louise, Amelie, Sophie or Julie at all.

Then again, my daughter is Emily, not Emilia so not much logic there smile

Why not try a little mixture of the names he likes but with an a, louisa, Alicia or jana?

CruCru Thu 30-May-13 16:40:35

Hmmm, well I had suggested Louisa and that's how I found out that he doesn't like names with an a added. In a while I'll post my list of girls names.
