Which name...? He likes one, I like the other.

DH and I are ttc #2, and although it is early we have been discussing names. Our DD's name is Adeline Michele, and both of us are partial to old fashioned names. We came up with 2 that we like, but I prefer one, and he prefers the other. Either way we're going with the middle name "Marie" (it's a family middle name for several generations).
So which do you like better?

1) Eleanor Marie

2) Evelyn Marie

3) something different (ideas?)

  • 2!

    1 sounds too old, but that's just personal preference.

  • Evelyn Marie
    that said though I think it sounds too much like your other daughter's name. Personally I would keep looking for another name. I love this website for names http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/babynames/ You can look up any given name in any yr to see how popular it is or was. You can also look at lists according to any given year
