Name Help Please :)

Hello! My husband and I are expecting our first child, a girl, in the fall. We were planning to name her Emilia, but now we're considering naming her Neve. We both have Irish names and think that it'd be appropriate to name her the latter, in part, because it's Irish. Regardless of our reasons, which do you like better as a first name? Neve or Emilia? Our last name is Hedges fyi. :)

  • Do you have a middle name picked out? Why not both, I think they could go together very nicely, in any order. Neve Emilia or Emilia Neve (ok, the first way sounds better to me actually, LOL).

  • Emilia Neve has a better Ring. My children both have Irish names in their name due to heritage. Carl Padaric and Quinn Cameron (girl). Padaric and Quinn being Irish. Cameron is actually Scottish. I think anywhere you put it in the name it has the same significants and it's really awesome you are tying it in.
