I like Ellia, a lot!
I like Ellia, a lot!
I don’t like either to be honest.
Why does he get to pick both names? He named your son so I can’t see why you don’t get to name your daughter?
I guess since he carried and birthed them both…oh, wait….
I like Ariella!!! I would never think of areola if you’re not mention it lol.
Thanks everyone! I like most of the names that were mentioned in your comments and brought them to his attention a while ago, but they all got shut down. I’ve given him a list of at least 50 names that I like and he thinks that they’re all absolutely horrible. The way we were coming up with names was to each write down what we liked and then we’d bring the list to each other. His list had 2 names and I actually do like them both, but no, I’m not sold on either really. I was just thinking that I preferred Ellia and would probably end up calling her Ellie. I really like the nickname Ellie. I just thought I’d get your opinions on the name, because it is pretty uncommon. Neither of us knew about the GoT reference. Anyway, I really appreciate all of your comments!
Also, just to clarify how we got to my son’s name, we both had it on our lists of names that we liked, so it was the obvious choice for us. ☺
Well now that you’ve said it I can’t unthink it lol. But if you still love it you should use it. An alternative could be Arielle or Ariel though, and could still shorten to Elle or Ella.
The other name doesn’t really do it for me personally but I don’t see anything won’t with it except maybe the need for your daughter to constantly spell it out to people.
I don’t like Ariella. It does remind me of areola. It also has 4 syllables, which I think is too many for a first name. My name is pretty long (9 letters) but only has 2 syllables. It also just seems like you’re adding the A at the end for no reason, since Arielle is a more common name.
I would not name my child something from GoT, personally. And Ellia also sounds like you’re just adding As to names that don’t need them.
I think it’s rude that your husband can get away with only adding 2 names to his list. He needs to rack his brain, do some research, and come back with at least 10, I think.
Not a fan of Ariella.
Ellia is better but it makes me think of GoT, and that character and her children did not have a happy ending, to put it lightly.
Your DH seems a little…controlling…as far as this goes.
Just remember, your children are the ones that have to carry the names throughout their lives. I knew a girl named Shakespeare (her dad was an English Lit prof and a huge fan). While I, too, love William Shakespeare, I felt bad for her as she always got the raised eyebrow look from people whenever she told them her name. She hated it, especially when she was a kid. She yearned to have a “normal, classic” name like other kids and when she was an adult changed her name. She was tired of explaining her name to people and just wanted to have something that no one would question. So definitely think about that when you’re naming your daughter.
I agree with PPs… Ella is beautiful. Ellia is okay… reminds me of Aaliyah which I like more and have seen spelled differently nowadays (such as Alia). My cousin’s name is Aria and I hear that is a GOT character, so that name is becoming more popular. But I love that name and if it wasn’t my cousin’s name I would choose it if I have a girl.
Ariella is okay… I think I like Arielle more. And Aria as I mentioned hehe. But it doesn’t really matter what I or the rest of the internet thinks! Just don’t let your husband bulldoze you into a name you don’t love. I am sure you guys can agree on a name you both love.
