My name's Alicia Shanice and my husband is Oliver Reece

I'm looking for something pretty and unique, boy or girl. Although for a boy its pretty much set up that he'll be named after the 3 males in our lives, DH's late dad is Logan, my grandpa is Basil and my uncle who raised me is Dennis Wayne.

Any ideas please? Girl or boy

I have two unique names in my family you may use if you like.

Snobilee........pronounced, SNOW-BA-LEE

and Tahkera.......pronounced TA-KAH-RA or TA-KER-RA.

If its a girl Denise is close enough to both Shanice and Dennis

Logan works for a boy or girl. Im not a fan of Basil close as I can get to a similar name is Bailey.

Denise Olivia would be my choice

Her nickname could be Olive short for Oliver

Please dont take this the wrong way but im curious... Why didnt you spell it to make the sound correct?  That name is NOT snow ba lee its snow billy.  Just like CO at the start of a word is a K sound and CE at the start of a word has an s sound.  The english language has rules of how things are pronounced.

I have never asked anyone but have always wondered why not just follow the phonetic rules?  Your child will have to pronounce her name for the rest of her life, and likely get some eyerolls and smirks in return.

The name belongs to my sister. That is how she spells it. Anyone can spell anything anyway they choose I suppose but your question is why I included pronouncation of them. Tahkera belonged to my godbaby who has passed away at the age of 18. I spelled snobilee once as snowbalee and my sister threw a fit and corrected me quickly so I assume she has no issues with how its spelled.

BTW, I believe my dad was drunk when he named her! LOL
