Hey all! Hoping you can help with our name choices as we cannot decide, and with due date imminent we are (I am) getting anxious!

Our eldest daughter has an unusual name, so we wanted something on a par

Luciana (Italian pronouciation)

they're not any sort of names i'd chose but from your list Elora is my fave

Livia or Alina

I like Livia and Alina, which is surprisingly underused in the UK.

Of those, I prefer Elora

Elora - Pretty name. Makes me think of Eleanor, which is another name I like.

Livia - I strangely like this name, and I'm not usually a fan of shortened versions of names. Maybe because it makes me think of Lydia?

Alina - Another pretty name. I think this one is my favourite from your list smile

Luciana - I like this name and that the nicknames Lucy or Ana can be taken from it. I think I prefer the other names a bit more though.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

I like Elora.

I wouldn't choose Livia if you want a name which is somewhat unusual. Whilst statistically it's not that popular, Olivia is extremely popular and they are just too similar. She'll have a lifetime of saying 'Yeah, like Olivia without the O 🙄)

I've never heard if Elora before, it's lovely.
There was a thread on here recently about the name Luciana. TBH I would avoid it if you don't have any Italian connection.

My girls are Isabella and Lucia. I'm thinking of Elysia for the third (due date last Wednesday!).
Good luck with everything xx

I really like Livia (much, much prefer it to Olivia but not really sure why!) and Alina

Good luck for a straightforward, speedy delivery, OP. flowers

louloubelle17, wishing you and soon-to-be-here baby well, too. Love the name Elysia, BTW.

I love Elora and quite like Alina. Livia and Luciana, not so keen, sorry

Sugarpiehoneyeye Tue 07-Nov-17 09:47:32

Alina is lovely !

Thanks ThaliaLuxurySpa!

Elora is lovely, very pretty
Livia is nice, but lots of people will assume her name is Olivia and you may have to correct them
Alina isn't my cup of tea, but a good, proper name
Luciana has lots of very cute nicknames (Lucy,Anna ect) and makes me think of a strong woman.
All lovely but my favourite is Luciana

Out of your suggestions I like Luciana and Elora - could also have Lucia as a shorter version ?

Some other unique names - Jolie, Neve, Nora, Evangeline, Ginny, Nola,
