Does this sound too "fancy"?

KnockMeDown Mon 27-Mar-17 10:34:22

I think it's lovely! It's pretty, original without being too out there, and the the two names sound well together.

I say go for it, but I'm sure that there will be plenty of opposing opinions grin

Ha ha ah thank you! Well me and my husband both love it so that's a start!

Pencilvester Mon 27-Mar-17 10:46:38

I like it smile

I don't think Jade goes very well with Aurelia but that's just me.,.

PetalMettle Mon 27-Mar-17 10:53:55

Very pretty

I only meant that on Mumsnet there always seems to be someone who doesn't like a name, though would be delighted to be proved wrong on this occasion.

If you and your husband both like it, I would venture to say that you don't really need the opinion of Internet randoms, but if everyone followed that, then we wouldn't have the entertainment that is the Baby Names forum!

Thanks all! I agree Knockmedown, I just wanted to test the water before she's born and we announce to everyone - it's such a big decision! Lottieandmia you may be right but we want Jade because it's a family name and important to us star

I like Aurelia. I know an Aurelia and it 'sounds' lovely - its pronounces 'Our-relia' though (not Or-elia) which to me makes it a bit more, um, exotic?

Sailhome Mon 27-Mar-17 11:05:38

Ah thanks everyone - you've made a very hormonal pregnant lady a lot less nervous about announcing the name we love for our daughter! grin]gringrin

It's colourful - it makes me think gold and green. I think they flow nicely together and also nice to have a meaningful family name included.

DramaAlpaca Mon 27-Mar-17 11:15:34

I think it's very pretty.

KnockMeDown Mon 27-Mar-17 12:01:02

I think the name will always remind me of that scene in Love Actually, where Colin Firth pitches up at the restaurant and pronounces 'Beautiful Aurelia!'

Rockaby Mon 27-Mar-17 12:25:30

I like it. It's very pretty.

littlepooch Mon 27-Mar-17 12:27:28

I like it!

FrenchLavender Mon 27-Mar-17 12:30:06

Aurelia is lovely, Jade is a bit 90's and common.

FrenchLavender Mon 27-Mar-17 12:30:45

What about Aurelia Jane or Aurelia Joy or Aurelia Jasmine.

TheHiphopopotamus Mon 27-Mar-17 12:35:26

I don't like either, sorry.

Aurelia reminds me too much of 'areola' and Jade is a bit common as pp's have said.

DesdemonasHandkerchief Mon 27-Mar-17 12:40:40

Love Actually connotations for me too. But it is a nice name.

LivMoore Mon 27-Mar-17 12:40:59

Aurelia is beautiful. I am not personally keen on Jade but if it has meaning and significance for you it matters not a jot what others feel about it.
Am I right in thinking it is pronounced (usually anyway) Or-eelia like a pp mentioned? Or are you going with Our-eelia?

ahamsternest Mon 27-Mar-17 12:42:34

Sounds a bit like a character in a Mills and Boon.

Thatextrainch Mon 27-Mar-17 13:35:47

Aurelia is beautiful. I'm not keen on Jade but it's better than Rose, May or Grace as a md.

Thatextrainch Mon 27-Mar-17 13:36:13

Also, nowt wrong with a fancy name.

Usanayme Mon 27-Mar-17 13:47:02

Very pretty. Reminds me of Love Actually
