I really like nature names, flower names, stone names.

Violet, Rose, Opal, Ruby, Jade, Stella, Luna, Willow...Etc

I named my dd Evelyn Victoria Moon. Evelyn means light or hazelnut or wished for child (and Lyn is my middle name) Victoria means victory (which is also the meaning for Nicole, my first name) and Moon is a family maiden name and means Moon, of course.
I was going to suggest those also

Jade is my middle name and when people hear it I always get a positive reaction

Re: Name our kiddo!

I like Cordelia. It's got a lot of nicknames, cora, corrie, delia, delee, lia. I know you'd end up calling her pearly girly at least a little bit
It's impossible not to make adorable nicknames with babies. We call Evelyn E V Moonpie all the time

I agree that it's a good idea to think of future sibling names. My kiddos all end in the N sound; Dylan, Aiden and Evelyn.

If I have future boys I'd do Julian, Weston, Gavin. Girls: Roslyn, Lillian, Madelyn, Avalon

Thx ladies!

But do you think Cordelia is too harsh sounding?? When it is spoken out loud, I mean?

My husband didn't veto it immediately so I think it may have potential!

Re: Name our kiddo!

My last name is very similar, just flip the "M" over and I almost always went with a combination of 4 or more syllables for the 1st and 2nd names, because of the 1 syllable last name. For example Liam Tobias, Tabitha Diane, Owen Emmanuel. So in your Sonja examples I like Sonja Hazel Meese best The others seem too abbreviated for me.

Re: Name our kiddo!

I don't like the silent J in Sonja

I don't think Cordelia sounds harsh at all. I think it's gentle and very nicely flowing.

And I definitely agree with the syllable thing. Balancing a one syllable (or many syllable) last name is interesting
