Susanna

Susanna’s new to my lists, sort of. I’ve toyed with her before. She’d honor me; Susanne is my second middle for my mom’s best friend.  I really dislike Susanna with the ‘H’ on the end, that ‘H’ clunks it up too much for me. But Susanna, just beautiful.  I like the potential for Sukie/Sookie and have been wondering if Daisy as a possible nickname isn’t too far-fetched. After all black-eyed susans are a type of daisy, right? So yeah, another way to get Daisy. I love Daisy. My Grandma would be thrilled!  Of course, now the house would be K, L, L, S, J & S, which rather annoys me but not so much that I still want to consider Susanna.

 

I have a few combos that make me happy in various ways:

 

Susannah Edith Plum
Susanna Iris Pearl
Susanna Ivy Jane
Susanna Jane Petronel
Susanna Margery Jane
Susanna Caroline Violet
Susanna Elspeth June
Susanna Romilly Violet
Susanna Poppy Adele
Susanna Ottilie Pearl
Susanna Lucy Pearl
Susanna Violet June
Susanna Viola Marilyn
Susanna Zoya Ruby/Alice/Jane/Frances/Maud
Susanna Sylvie June

 

 

 There are a few that really stand out to me, but I want to see if any stand out to anyone else. Would you all be so kind as to flip though these and tell me what you like or really hate? I’d really appreciate it!  I’ll state my favorites later.

 

As always, thanks for stopping by and also for commenting!

Zelda Again!

After much arguing back & forth, Zelda is on the official list with approval. Now, he thinks she needs “something light and frilly” in the middle and I think she needs a little grounding.  I went through our lists (the whole extensive mess!) ad have it down to these three. I tried to balance light & frilly with something a bit more down to earth in the middle. Zelda strikes me as a touch heavy but not too much so.

I have a poll going at Behind the Name with these three in it as well, feel free to go vote, if you wish!

Zelda Rosalie Violet
Zelda Frances Rosemary
Zelda Lily Caroline

I think I like Zelda Rosalie Violet & Zelda Lily Caroline best, but I’m also charmed by Zelda Frances Rosemary in fits.  Which do you like best? And if you don’t mind, why?  I’d love to hear anyone’s thoughts!

 

Addendum: I just saw someone asking about Zelda at fairly trendy  babynames.com, some of the things I thought of to go with Zelda but ultimately discarded are in that thread; Carys, Caroline, etc.  I am quite thrilled with Zelda Rosalie Violet and was very happy indeed to not see Rosalie or Violet in that thread. Not that I expect either name to remain quiet, Violet’s already on the way up and with ‘Twilight’ the huge hit  it appears to be, Rosalie’s going to start climbing as well.
