I like Prudence better than Pru... Pru just sounds so incomplete. Definitely a good nickname to use but not her FULL name.

I think that's a very fair compromise. Pru seems so incomplete to me.

That's how we compromised. Hubby liked Lily/Lilith but I don't care for Lilith. I suggested Liliana and we'd call her Lily. He compromised.

SO & I were the exact same way. Couldn't agree on a name for the life of us. We chose names finally both boy & girl (at about 13-18 weeks going back & fourth with ideas finally chose by the time we knew of the sex) he got to chose the boys first name & I chose the boys middle name .. Then I got to chose the girls first name & he chose her middle name.. It all worked out great that way lol! Oh & were having a girl ;) haha!! Whom will be here next Friday the 26th. Good luck with choosing names :)

I think it is a fair compromise, though I'm not a big fan of Prudence. What happened to Dorothy?

Dorothy Eliza :) Same thing that happened to Elowen Lilith, just wasn't in love with it enough to stick.

Aw...



Well if I had to choose a nickname for Prudence, I would go with "Rue." (I'm a Hunger Games fan, lol).

I like either short or long, bc of Charmed but I would go with Prue over Pru. what would you use as a middle? maybe that will help with pick short or long on the first

We settled on our names today, He compromised with the girl name and I did with his boy choice.



Prudence Elowen (Pru) for a girl
Obadiah Lynn Michael (Obi) for a boy



We find out on the 6th what we are having. Very excited! I love both the name sets so I'm excited now to find out the sex

You can always change it when the baby is born. lets hope for a girl and a different MN. good luck.
