4 weeks to go and DH and I still not decided on names. I'd definitely have Lyra or Georgia, but he's not convinced.

Came across Jovie today and he likes it! I'm not 100% but it sounds nice with our surname and works with the middle name I want.

It also has tenuous links to Christmas - it's the girl from Elf's name. We LOVE Elf blush

Looks like a misspelling of Josie TBH

I immediately thought Bon...

It's not a great name (sorry)

FaithAscending Tue 01-Nov-16 20:53:36

I too thought Jon Bon...

EddieStobbart Tue 01-Nov-16 20:55:18

Nah, I think you'd better hold on to what you've got

SisterViktorine Tue 01-Nov-16 20:55:28

Why not Jody?

DefinitelyNotRuth Tue 01-Nov-16 20:55:37

I think it's really cute smile

I thought of Elf immediately

Love it

I love it and think it suits all ages.

I also LOVE Elf and watch it every year but didn't make the connection? I did think 'bon jon' though.

I think it's cute and different, it's that's what you're going for!

It doesn't make a difference if you make it or not.

Quodlibet Tue 01-Nov-16 21:27:02

You've got each other and that's enough...?

babyinthacorner Tue 01-Nov-16 21:27:53

Oh FFS. I HATE Bon Jovi.

Back to the drawing board.

And very good Chinlo grin

Sugarpiehoneyeye Tue 01-Nov-16 21:30:09

Lyra is lovely.

Pluto30 Tue 01-Nov-16 21:30:36

I know a girl named Jovi.

I still think it's odd and she's 6 or 7 now.

Yes, it's very Bon Jovi reminiscent.

How about Joni? As in Joni Mitchell?

HerRoyalNotness Tue 01-Nov-16 21:31:36

My cousins little boy is a Jovi, after Jon Bon. Doesn't feel like a real name to me

HerRoyalNotness Tue 01-Nov-16 21:32:36

Joni per PP is a good alternative

Quodlibet Tue 01-Nov-16 21:37:35

Elvie? Effie?

babyinthacorner Tue 01-Nov-16 21:39:27

I can't believe I didn't make the Bon Jovi connection myself, to be honest! Baby brain plus name desperation I guess... wink

Joni's a great suggestion, but I know a couple of boys with that as their pet name and I wouldn't be able to get past that connection.

Think I could get DH to agree to Lyra if I start a proper campaign...

EddieStobbart Tue 01-Nov-16 22:01:00

Actually... I'd give it a shot

Oysterbabe Tue 01-Nov-16 22:16:29

Maybe use it as a middle name, that way you're halfway there.

EddieStobbart Tue 01-Nov-16 22:42:59

Livvie? Ona? Prepare for your friends to be surprised.
