I am expecting a dd and we have narrowed the list down to the following (though we still have a while to go... so it could all change!). We're after something less ordinary as dcs dad is called Kevin and had always hated being either one of several in the class or having a dull uncle's name, as he puts it.
So: any positive or negative vibes on the following? I've seen other unusual name threads and think I am tough enough to take it on the chin!
I haven't heard any of those before other than Lana, which I quite like. You would be letting your dd in for a lifetime of having to spell her name, which does get irritating (I often have to spell mine).
Do you like Nico? Nina? Una? All similar sounds but in the public consciousness a little more than your shortlist.
Of course you may not give two hoots that your shortlisted names are out of the public consciousness, in which case I'd say go for it!
Was Nova one of Shiloh Pitt's middle names? I wouldn't use it. Neva is nice -- are you thinking of the river? Thyra reminds me too much of thyroid, sorry. Lena is nice too -- another Russian river perhaps? How would you pronounce Lene?
Nova = supernova? Neva = no for many reasons listed above Thyra just ugly, let alone thryoidish Lana I like, very hollywood. Isn't there a name like Alana which is possible? (Rod Stewart's ex? or am i mistaken ...)
