    @moose I don't think your tastes are all that far apart either. Maya and Norah fall in with Ella as fairly similar. Hmm. If it's the L sound he likes maybe something like Mila or Nola would work. Mia?

    Or one I like that's similar: Nova

    @moose I also really like Norah but it didn't feel right for M. But I think her name and Cora both have a similar feel.

    I love Cora. But I feel like Lyra and Cora are too matchy. Probably shouldn’t get ahead of myself though, still have to find out if this baby will be Lyra :lol:

    I also love Mila, but apparently it’s super popular right now so IDK. #14 in the US in 2018.

    I am here for Cora, but our last name is also a hard C and we don’t like alliterative names with C. Otherwise I would’ve pushed for Caroline or Claire.

    Just some names that you might like. Some more similar to the names you listed than others.

    I like Arlo as a girls name too but I can’t get A on board. I googled can Arlo be a girls name and then I say that Leighton meister named her daughter that so I am going to keep pushing for it lol

    Hazel seconds Hazel as a good name. She adds that it is best said when followed directly by a treat and worst when you have finally found something interesting and mom calls that "not food."

    I also love Hazel! And you all know how I feel about Emilia :loveu:

    I know you probably mean, like, for work, but I'm just imagining a pibble named Claribel carefully drawing up her application to come live at HBC's Pibble Paradise.

    We sat down and named our embryos yesterday. Basically we listed out our top 6 names for girls and top 2 names for boys. It was fun and it was really nice to be able to do a "normal" (ish. normal-ish) thing as our journey to parenthood has been anything but.

    Love those! Amelia was one of my favorites but N wasn’t into it at all. Same with Eleanor nickname Nora. I have a soft spot for Ava because I used to nanny for a girl with that name and she was really sweet. Noah is great too. Basically you have excellent taste in names haha.

    saw this at the ped today and thought of you-


    it was a little girl and they called her millie. I thought it was a cute gender neutral name!

  24. I love Madeline so much. If my surname weren't so long I'd be stealing that for sure. All great names though.
