DH and I have argued (and I've cried) bc we just can't agree on a girl name. He has brought up trendy names and surnames and male names, none ofwhich i can get on board with. Finally, today, the name Orchid came up in conversation. We both like it. I'm a big science nerd and actually have.an orchid tattoo. I know this isn't traditionally a name... But wondering what others (especially my fellow CNLs) think of it.
Definitely do not like it.
It's too hard.
I actually like it. :oops: Oleander too. Orchid seems like a perfect middle name though.
I don't like the name- trying to think of what comes to mind.
Not my taste but I've heard worse....What about willow or hazel?
I heard the name Arbor (for a little girl) today in church. I thought it was strangely alluring.
I love some of the floral names. So feminine.

I agree! DH has vetoed every one from this list that I like.

Willow is too popular for me and DH vetoed Hazel. I've considered TONS of other botany names prior. He always shoots them down.
<blockquote><b>Quoting Carter&Violet♥:</b>" Aurelia Ophelia I don't like the name- trying to think of what comes to mind."</blockquote>
DD1 is Lucy Aurora (too close to use Aurelia) and I like Ophelia but DH hates it and it does make me think "like PED Ophelia"
I like it. When I was younger I wanted to be a music major, so my DDs name is Harmony lol. even though I gave up being a music major and plan on starting school to become a counselor now lol. but I like the name, its different but not to far out there
Jacinta (means hyacinth in Spanish)
Well, it's spelled correctly. :lol: I wouldn't use it.
I have brought up Cypress, Willow, Sage, Hazel, Juniper, Aspen, Ash, Iris, Clover, Niamh, Maeve, Moira, Lorelei, Stella, Irene, Andromeda, and probably a dozen more I loved, ALL vetoed. I'm telling you, Orchid is the best I have to work with. DH's top 3 are Laney, Stormy, and Trinity.
Is he not willing to compromise? You choose the first and he can have a trendy middle?
