Baby Name Poll: a Pretty 1St Name to Go with Louise...
August 22, 2011
Hi moms, I was wondering if you can help me with finding a name first name for a girl. The middle name will be Louise (my grandmothers name). I was thinking something like Ava Louise and my sister mentioned Ella Louise but I'm not so sure....
Hope I don't come off as annoying. I just was thinking that people are not giving you a one name solution- just more choices, making it even harder to decide. Maybe, since most people call their friends by their first names, you should pick Ava or Ella based on which you prefer to call your daughter. Both sound fine with Louise, but really how often are you going to say the whole name after the birth announcement?
I like ava. I like Emma too, Ella Louise is too many l's for me, but an e name would give her the initials ELM, right? I also like anna, Harper,Kathryn, Lauren, Madeline, Naomi, Olivia, Rebecca, Samantha, sofia/sophia/sophie, taryn, Veronica, Victoria. Congrats!
When I first read your post I thought of Emma Louise right away but I know that many ppl have already suggested it - Smart Mamas =)
I think that any name that ends with an A sounds really pretty and seems to flow well together
Good Luck and Congrats
Well,, my middle name is Louise, so IMO, M. Louise works pretty well! My best girlfriend named her youngest Olivia Louise, so that's another option, too!
ETA--I've always read that you're supposed to try to switch it up with the number of syllables between first, middle & last names which I think is probably why I prefer a 3-syllable first name with a 2-syllable middle or vice versa. Just a thought.
