Ok SO and I finally agreed on a name. I love Penelope but h doesn':roll:. He loves Evelyn and while I like it I can't help but think Evil lyn ever since I saw the name Evelina....lol :evil:



Some we have come down to after hours and hours of saying diff names. Our daughter's name wasn't nearly this difficult to come up with



Catalaya (Cat-uh-lay-ah) like Catalina but Laya at the end. :wink:



Now I need suggestions on spelling because I want it to be able to pronounce without asking how do you say that?8)



Also need middle name suggestions?

I think Catalaya is pretty straight forward.

Catalaya will probably be your best bet.

Catalaya reminds me of my favorite area in Spain. A region called Catalonia.



Just the most lovely place on earth, imo :)

Cataleia? LOL idk but the way you spelled it is pretty upfront. Also, middle names depend on the length of your last name because that is a pretty strong first name, and if you have a strong last name you don't want a huge middle name. My daugher's name is Lillianne Mae, because our last name is kinda long lol. I know someone who's daughters name is Shaelynn AnnMarie, and they have a long last name as well

Oh that's not bad at all. Hm. The only name that comes to mind is Rebekah, spelling optional...just because when I say it angry (CATALEYA REBEKAH ARTHUR YOU GET IN THIS HOUSE RIGHT MEOW!!!) it flows lol. That's the test for me, for any name. Does it flow off my tounge when I'm angry lol.
