Personally, I wouldn't give names that reflect personal attributes, in case it turns out that the person is nothing like that.

clashofclanswidow Thu 17-Mar-16 14:49:50

True - it was mostly for my own reasons but I hadn't actually thought of that! X

But you could give a name meaning it without being too obvious:

Peoples thoughts on Skyrah?! Different...

I kinda like it, never heard of it before and could be shortened to Sky? x

I like Sky, but not Skyrah.

How about Serena?

How about Honoria - a bit of honor in there but not so obvious. (Dickens character name) Sounds nicer than it looks lol.

MrsBac83 Thu 17-Mar-16 15:58:31

Pronounced like On-or-re-ah

StDogolphin Thu 17-Mar-16 16:23:29

Penelope
Felicity
Helena

MrsBac like gonorrhoea??

Lweji Thu 17-Mar-16 16:33:58

I'd pronounce Honoria with emphasis on the second o, as in lorry(a), not gonorrhea, which I pronounce with an emphasis on the rrhea.

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Thu 17-Mar-16 16:41:54

I love the name Faith. Can't you use that?

ABitAsleep Thu 17-Mar-16 16:43:49

I love Honoria - i would pronounce it hon-noor-ree-ah (NoCapes Did you see the series Dickensian on BBC? There was a character on there named Honoria if you want to hear how it should be pronounced)

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Thu 17-Mar-16 16:50:25

It's a pain to go through life telling people how to pronounce your name though. Lots of people will read it as rhyming with gonnorhea.
I prefer Honor/ honour.

I've gone off on a tangent now and decided I like Willow! No wonder I can never settle! x

luckySwallow13 Thu 17-Mar-16 17:04:11

What about nirvana? I have been pondering this for myself . Do you think it's daft?

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Thu 17-Mar-16 17:07:31

Nirvana's a great name. Reminds me a bit of Kurt Cobain but I doubt our next generation would make that link.

clashofclanswidow Thu 17-Mar-16 17:09:40

I like Nirvana! I also like Neveah, heaven backwards =)

Oh my Sister has just pointed out...but I'm not sure if she is just over-thinking...could Willow get "Willy" if I already have a Lily?! Hahaha I thought Lily and Willow went lovely together but now all it takes is for someone to say it too fast without concentrating?! x

luckySwallow13 Thu 17-Mar-16 17:10:19

yea that's what I'm thinking. My dp is a big kurt fan so I don't think he'll like it . Im thinking middle name at least ;) x

luckySwallow13 Thu 17-Mar-16 17:13:34

hmm I think she's over worrying . However I can imagine willow and lillow being mistakenly said . Ha now I'm over thinking
