Would be interested to hear your thoughts on the following names please:

I'm not 100% sure I'm pronouncing them correctly , I like the second one

PointlessUsername Tue 27-Sep-16 16:12:23

Auraya would be my first choice.

user1474882999 Tue 27-Sep-16 16:12:38

Thanks. That's pronounced Aur-RAY-a.

Mariella isn't unique - Mariella Fostrup!

Haven't heard of the others. Think I like Arienna best but might often be mispronounced as Ariana, which is definitely not unique.

I like Mariella

Mary is a good name, why you would want to saddle someone with a name they have to tell everyone how to pronounce is beyond me.

Mariella is beautiful......what about Meriel instead of Mirel?

Don't like the others - especially not Auraya - looks like you can't spell Aurora.

Adrielle sounds like you couldn't decide between Adrienne and Elle so merged them

What about Aurelia? Au-RAY-lia-a?

Mariella is nice too.

Mariella is the only one I like from that list - it's a pretty name and not particularly overused but not that unusual that your DD will spend all her time telling people how to spell it/pronounce it when she is older

Op what do you prefer? You must be swaying more towards one

The Mirel I know spells it 'Mirelle'

As someone who has lived for over 50 years with a name that others can neither pronounce nor spell correctly, I'm begging you to have a rethink. grin

My absolute fave is Marielle but can't use it coz of close colleague DD called that. Mariella was a compromise on my part. I much prefer Mirel spelt Mirelle but hadn't seen it anywhere like that when I looked. It's weird, I don't look at any of them and think they're hard to pronounce but important that others may struggle...

OP, do you play Gardens of Time on Facebook, perchance? I'm pretty sure three of your names cropped up there recently! Adrielle definitely did, and I think Arienna and Mirel too. I quite like Arienna. Auraya I'd pronounce O-rye-a, so may not be an obvious one for people if you used it.
