Need Names!!!!!

In approx 5-6 weeks we will get to find out who Little Bean really is !!! Mike and I like to name the baby once we find out the sex which means we have 5-6 weeks to pick names. We have absolutely no boys names whatsoever and the 3 girls names we like we aren't real sure of ( Lucia, Nairi/Nayiri, Zelie)
Neither seem to go super well with a French Canadian last name and none of them just jump out at us.
So please send us your suggestions. My only stipulation is that it be a unique name and not in the top 100.. I can't seem to find the SS top 100 names but here are the top 100 for NH...

Ps.. you get bonus points if you can come up with an Armenian name that's not to hard to pronounce and goes with our last name!

Zelie reminds me of this girl my best friend used to work with named Zulie which I actually like and it's pretty unique.

LUCIA is my vote! We discussed Lucia at lenth this time, and have it on the list for any future babies.

I love Lucia! Probably because I like it and Chris would tell me no! Beautiful!

I love Lucia...very pretty. I am nameing this baby Maggie Elise and it said on one site I looked at that "Elise" orginal origin is Armenian. I also looked at other Armenian names and for a girl I also liked "Talin" & "Mina"....I just looked at girls because I think you are having a girl:O)

Hi Tanya,I really enjoy your blog. Keira is so cute and sweet...OK, there are a couple of names that came to my mind. ca
Girl names:
Sona, Lucine(Lusine), Lilith, Siranush( or Siranoush), Mariam, Maneh,Zara
*Liana or Lia(these two name are quite popular in Armenia although I think they have either an Italian or a Hebrew origin)

Boy names
Tigran,Levon, Narek,Raffi,Gor, Sahak, Movses

Hope you start feeling better soon.

Soo who is having name issues now!!!
I vote for Vinny for a boy and Virginia for a girl.

All of the boy names we like are probably in the top 100. The only one that I suspect may not be would be Jerome.

For girls we like Luciana Christi and Mildred unbelievably. I doubt you would use that, though. We would call her Millie probably, even though I typically despise nicknames.

I personally like Lucia (Lucy was one of our top 3 choices for Violet). The other name I think is beautiful is Astrid (didn't know if that was too weird for you). I got nothing for boys!!

okay, Armenian girl's names are hard. When I looked them up on "babynology" most of them sound like a sneeze. But I like:

Lara
Sara
Zada (I like this one best - it means "fortunate one" and you have the added bonus of the "z")

Armenian Boy's names:

Jivan (you get alliteration with the V
Oshin (but it sounds like you're swearing)
Raphael

and...


Wait for it...


SAMSON!!! Yay! and the meaning is "Bright as the Sun" or "His Ministry" depending on whether you're looking at it as Armenian or Hebrew.

Liz said...

I say for a girl...

Isabella
Maria Elena (run them together, sounds like marielena)
Lucianna (lucia for short)

For boys.....
Marcello
Victor
Ivan

It is a tough call either way becuae I agree for the need for something original and not something that can easily be turned into a nickname.
