loving xanthe as a first name. what goes well as a middle name. i like eve and do think we need a one syllable name to go with our surnane (2 syllable).

Eve is perfect.
What about Nina which means girl- as Xanthe means blonde haired?

Toomany Rose, Mays and Graces IMO.

minkersmum Sun 21-Sep-08 23:01:48

We considered Nina as a first name but middle name needs to be one syllable.
i do love eve because it means life and shes so precious to us (as im sure all babies r )

How about Hope then? Has lovely connotations smile

Can't think of a single syllable name which flows well. Grace maybe?

Isn't Xanthe Eve going to be hard to say? Too many "e" sounds?

Megglevache Sun 21-Sep-08 23:43:51

I doubt the two names will be used together too often. My dd has three names all of them together sound really odd, lots of assorted strange sounds and then there's our 4 syllable surname.
11 syllables in all. I knew I should've called her Pat.

i hate choosing names, so bloody hard, wondering now if xanthe slightly pretentious name??

Plonker Sun 21-Sep-08 23:49:39

What letter does your surname start with?

The reason i ask is that Xanthe Eve together sounds to me like Xan Thieve, which i guess isn't too bad unless your surname starts with 'S' (Xanthe Eve Summer, for example sounds like Xan thieves summer)

Or do i just think strangely blush

Megglevache Sun 21-Sep-08 23:50:54

LOL at Plonker, No guess not Brad and Ange could have done with you when they named Pilo Shitt LOL.

thumbwitch Sun 21-Sep-08 23:53:12

grin at minkersmum - COURSE it is but if you like it, who cares?
