Thought I was positive I had a girls name picked but... Shayne's Mommy :) Due October 30 (girl); 1 child; Massachusetts 130 posts

Now that it's time to pick names again, I'm having second thoughts! I don't know the gender yet, but I've always had the name Milah set in stone as our future daughter's name, now I'm not so sure. (I would pronounce it my-lah). I've been seeing so many other pretty names on here and I feel like there are so many more classical lovely girls' names out there that I have not even considered.



My son's name is Shayne, and while I love his name, I sort of regret spelling it with a "Y" because it's an unnecessary letter thrown in there and we have to spell it out every time so that people spell it "right." So this time around, I want to choose a classic, but somewhat unique (as in not many children with the name, not as in some crazy made up name) name. Opinions on the name Milah? And other suggestions? Also, when it comes to boys' names...totally lost. Suggestions for boy names are welcomed also :)

Yeah I wasn't too sure about the "h" but I was trying to figure out a way to spell it so that people would pronounce it "my-lah" instead of mee-lah but I'm sure the H doesn't make any difference in the way people see it lol. I just didn't want to spell it Myla.

In my mind, Milah =Mee-la



I agree with the other poster, Mila is lovely.

Yeah I was just wondering that. I think the only way anyone will say it MY-la without you telling them 89 times is to spell it Myla... lol. I know that's not what you're looking for... sorry I'm no help.

I actually did read it my-lah. But I assumed the name was Mila, with an H.
You'd definitely have to spell it Myla if that's what you're going for. Either way I like it.

Mila* The "h" is also an "unnecessary" letter. It would prevent you for most of the time having to spell it out. I think some people may also spell is Myla but Mila seems more traditional. I spell my name out for people because people spell it Tracy and Tracie. My name is Tracey. My sons name is spelled right though. Isaiah and I still have to tell a lot of people how to spell it right because they wanna spell it Isiah or something weird like that.

Yes I wasn't sure how I would spell it, didn't want to butch it like I did with my son's name lol because he is only 21 months and we are always having to spell it for people. I'm not even sure if I'm going to use Mila if we have a girl but I've always loved it. Thank you :)

It will be butchered whether it's the spelling or pronunciation.
