  • I'm editing and expanding on my list and I need some help.

    Lilia/Lilija Genevieve McDonald
    Paulina Rose McDonald (Nina)
    Maia/Maija Elizabeth McDonald
    Zoya Madeleine McDonald
    Stephanie Alessandra McDonald
    Geneva Katherine Rose McDonald (Evie)
    Irēna Judith McDonald
    Vera Josephine McDonald
    Katarina Rose McDonald
    Noelle Katherine McDonald - Not sure of this one.
    Thea Rose McDonald
    Arielle Jade McDonald - I'm not really crazy about Jade so I'm looking for something else. I hate Marie, Lynn, Grace, and Faith too.
    Annika Mireille McDonald
    Fiona Audrey McDonald
    Vada Elizabeth McDonald
    Xanthe Rose McDonald
    Susanna/Zuzanna Audrey McDonald
    Zaida Ruby McDonald
    Nadia Mireille McDonald
    Aislinn Jane McDonald
    Evelina Rose McDonald (Evie)
    Tessa Caroline McDonald - Love this one, but concerned about Tessa's popularity.
    Daphne Rebecca McDonald
    Maeve Alexandra McDonald
    Magnolia Jane McDonald (Maggie)
    Aviana Mae McDonald (Avi) - maybe add something else on to Mae or use an entirely different middle?
    Gabrielle Rose McDonald
    Estrella Madeleine McDonald
    Anneliese Claire McDonald - does Claire flow okay? This name is a difficult one to pair up.
    Erica Rose McDonald
    Calla Vivian McDonald
    Ksenia/Ksenija Violet McDonald
    Lyra Natalie McDonald
    Cassia Noelle McDonald
    Seren ____________ McDonald

    I also love Phoebe, Niamh/Neve, Michaela/Mikaela, Lorelei, Giselle (love it as a FN or MN), Catriona/Caitriona, Karenna, and Seraphina. Middle names I'm considering are Valerie, Amelia, Victoria, Audrey, Caroline, Aurora, Athena, Julia, Vivian, Kimberly (a family friend's daughter), Ivy, Melody, Leilani, Rebecca, Vanessa, April (after a family friend), Janet (my mom)/Jean (paternal grandmother. Her name was Regina but she went by Jean or Jeannie. Jean is fine as a MN too), Astrid, or Carys (I love it as a first name, but one of my cousins is Kara which sounds too close so it'll have to be in the middle).

    Eamon Francis McDonald
    Rhys Alfred McDonald
    Lachlan Elliot McDonald
    Ronan Jesse McDonald
    Dmitri James McDonald
    Alton Gregory McDonald
    Damon Merritt McDonald - Not sure.
    Andrejs Benjamin McDonald
    Abram Vincent McDonald
    Ephraim Zachary McDonald - ??
    Conrad Jensen/James McDonald - Jensen is growing on me. Do the middle names work together when combined or should I just go with one or the other? Conrad is growing on me as well. I don't love it, but it's not bad.
    Cassius Bryan/Brian McDonald - Debating between spelling Bryan or Brian.
    Henriks Joseph Dylan McDonald (Erik, Hank, Hal)
    Stellan Bradley McDonald
    Dario ___________ McDonald - I just can't think of anything.

    I'm considering Raphael (FN or MN), Konstantin (as a MN. It's pronounced like Constantine), Ira (as a MN), Rory, Salvatore (MN), Hiro (It's Japanese, so not the same as Hero, but pronounced the same), Tennyson (MN, but not completely opposed to it as a FN), Magnus (MN), Lorenzo (MN. I worry that it's getting too popular for a FN), or Vincenzo.

    Feel free to match up some of my ideas for the girls' and boys' names and make more suggestions. I prefer classics and international variations of classic names (Irish, Latvian, and Scottish especially), maybe a bit unusual. Gender specific is a must and preferably nothing in the top 200 (if it is, no top 100's or rapidly rising names. I hesitated to keep Tessa and Thea on the list because they are both gaining. I'm just not ready to drop them right now because I really like them. Waiting for the ssa website to release the names for 2016), creatively spelled, trendy like Harper, Harlow, Mason, or Jayden, or obviously made up.

    Alessandra is pronounced AH-less-ahn-dra.
    Irēna is pronounced Ih-ree-na.
    Mireille is Meer-AY.
    Xanthe is ZAN-thee.
    Aislinn is ASH-lin.
    Estrella is Es-STRAY-ah.
    Ksenia/Ksenija is something close to Ka-sen-ya. The Ks is pronounced almost like it's one syllable though.
    Lyra is Leer-ah. LIE-ra is okay too, but I prefer the softer -ee sound to prevent people from calling the kid 'liar'.
    Seren is Seh-REN, like Serenity, but without the ending.
    Andrejs is like the Spanish Andres.
    Abram is AH-bram.
    Cassius is CASS-ee-us.
    Dario is DAR-ee-oh.
