You know the singer Kelly Llorenna from like the 90's? I always thought Llorenna would make a good first name.

Alisvolatpropiis Tue 25-Jun-13 18:03:11

I know of a few toddler Lorennas...similar?

OctopusPete8 Tue 25-Jun-13 18:08:18

Breezy1985 Tue 25-Jun-13 18:18:15

When I was little I always imagined myself with a little girl called Veda (my girl) grin Changed my mind but still love it.
Have always thought the same about Kelly Llorenna's (sp) last name too.

Verienne- there used to be a girl at my work called it, I always regret not having asked her about her name before she left our work.

I love it so much, but dh not so much.

Oubliette0292 Sun 30-Jun-13 16:44:30

I always thought Gethsemane would make a good girls name (but wasn't brave enough to use it). I quite like Aneurin for a boy.

DS's middle name is Erasmus. smile He'd be Aphra if he'd been a girl. I like Hepzibah too.

TheOneAndOnlyAlpha Sun 30-Jun-13 21:16:35

I like Veda. I know a Veda. She is very cool.

DessieLou Sun 30-Jun-13 21:20:33

Arietty for a girl, Phoebus for a boy. DH loves Errol, I can't decide if I like it or not!

for boys Rufus and Bruno - though they are dogs' names to me.
I love dogs

tumbletumble Sun 30-Jun-13 21:43:14

Always it's pronounced Ee-fah (emphasis on first syllable)

amazingmumof6 Sun 30-Jun-13 22:16:04

tumble that is similar to how some people pronounce Eva ( ee-va or ee-fa)

do you know if Aoife and Eva/Eve are connected?
