im thinking:

if a girl: Dahlia Rae, or Mia Phoenix
if a boy: Phoenix ...

what middle name could i add to phoenix? i love alexander but i think an x in both names doesnt go so well.

what are your opinions for the girls names?

I think the first names for a girl are fine, the middle names are very common - not in a used a lot way either!

Phoenix - WHY??????

Dahlia is lovely, elegant and uncommon too. Don't cheapen it with a rhymey singsong middle name like Rae.

Not keen on Phoenix, but you obviously are so I shall bite my tongue grin

Dahlia, lovely, Rae no

Pheonix, no!

moseskoeln Sat 12-Sep-09 15:20:55

lol to the opinions on phoenix. im not sure why, i heard the name years ago and just really like it now

what would you put with dahlia if not rae?? im not so keen on a longer middle name..i think.

namings sooo hard..

Dahlia is ok. I'm not overly keen on Rae, but it's ok. Doesn't quite 'go' with Dahlia though ...

Mia is lovely. Dislike Phoenix though. Too try hard.

Not Phoenix, for a boy or girl.

What about
Alexander Ray for a boy
Dahlia Mia/Marie for a girl.

I'm not sure I'd bother with a middle name for Dahlia. Let it stand alone.

If I did want one, it might be something like Jean. Dahlia has a 40s film star ring to it, so maybe choose something else of that era.

Dahlia May maybe?

moseskoeln Sat 12-Sep-09 16:02:29

i LOVE Alexander Ray!
i worked in a Romanian orphange for 2 months last year and some kids really special to me were alexandra, alexandru, and kinda fond of an 'alexy' name

a dislike middle names marie..and i find it overused and common.

dahlia alexandra (too long?)

cyteen Sat 12-Sep-09 16:11:15

May is another rhymey-matchy name. I love it on its own but not with Dahlia. Think Alexandra is too long about a double D pairing like Dahlia Dora?

Alexander Ray is excellent grin

belgo Sat 12-Sep-09 16:55:14

Dahlia Alexandra is lovely, there is nothing wrong with a long middle name, far more interesting then a rhymey-matchy, meaningless middle name such as May.

belgo Sat 12-Sep-09 16:55:53

Yes Alexander Ray works very well as a boy's name.

diddl Sat 12-Sep-09 17:29:15

I also like Dahlia Alexandra.

MaggieVirgoOn Sat 12-Sep-09 17:31:18

I like Renee for a girl, but I don't like Phoenix much.

Renee Mia or Renee Dahlia are both nice though. (Mentioning Renee because it has a smiliar meaning)

CuppaTeaJanice Sat 12-Sep-09 18:49:08

Those Romanian names sound much cooler than plain old Alexander. And they mean something special to you too. Why not use one of them for your baby?

moseskoeln Sun 13-Sep-09 20:22:19

dahlia dora hmm...

boy: Phoenix Alecser (pronounced alexer..but without having two x names)

girl : Dahlia Alexandra


pinkthechaffinch Sun 13-Sep-09 20:25:41

ooH I like Dahlia Jean, too.

Wattinger Sun 13-Sep-09 23:36:59

Dahlia is a gorgeous name but I think dahlia Alexandra is a bit of a mouthful. Needs a simple 1 syllable middle name I think!

Dahlia Kate
Dahlia Rose
Dahlia Grace
Dahlia Eve
Dahlia Hope
Dahlia Faith
Dahlia Skye


MamaLazarou Mon 14-Sep-09 07:26:56

Dahlia's lovely (PG Wodehouse fan here), but dislike Rae as it just doesn't seem like a real name to me. I like the above suggestions of Jean, Hope and Kate.

Phoenix is just an attention-seeking joke name, IMO, sorry.

jellybeans Mon 14-Sep-09 10:22:44

Like Mia but not the others.

MarshaBrady Mon 14-Sep-09 10:23:47

Mia is cute...

moseskoeln Mon 14-Sep-09 19:09:44

hmm...i def cant have dahlia jean... (daddys french and called jean ..pronounce john)!

dahlia alina
dahlia evelyn
dahlia alexia
dahlia marie
