for a boy atleast ! maddex ford. SO came up with the first name and we just could not come up with a middle name then we came up with ford. neither name is from anyone in the family. but when it comes to a girls name we can not agree at all.
i like ;;
– maelee (my middle name is mae & i get it from my grandma)
-tinleigh (he likes it but he doenst like how its spelt, he likes tinlee)
-makenna (but we dont know how to spell it because SO doesnt like big and little letters) example; McKenzie. he likes it all lower after the first letter.
as you can tell my SO is picky ! do you have an girl names you like ? we are in need of help. we want something differnt. not a everyday name, i have one and hate it.

I really like your boy name. Kennedy and Elise are two of my favorite more unusual girl names.
Also, you could always consider classic names that are no longer widely used.

I’m not a fan of trendy names. No offense, but I can see these names/similar ones in a few years on one of those ‘most hated baby names’ lists.

Maddex Ford is really cute! I like Luna and Mischa for smoething a bit different for girls..

@careanne: Yea. Fiance and I also both dislike when people change “i” to “y” or change any other spelling…spelling it different doesn’t make it a different name!

My neighbor growing up had a daughter named Tenley. Have you ever considered Everleigh/Everley? I liked that one, but we decided to go with a more classic/traditional name (Charlotte June).
Other names with “Mae” might be Maelyn, Maegan, Maesie, Ellamae, Lulamae, Evamae, Mabel/Maebelle.
Our name tastes differ, but other names we considered were Isla (procounced Eye-la), Autumn, Norah, Willow, Caroline, Eleanor, Adelaide, Virginia, Silvia, Audrey. I love androgynous names, so I also had stuff like Charlie (which is our little one’s nickname!), Sawyer, Max, Riley, etc. on my list. I was obsessed with naming our daughter Sawyer for a while, Darling Husband said no. 🙁
Our little girl didn’t have a “for sure” name until the day she was born. You have time!

I really wish my husband had been on board with Isla. I know it would have potentially been annoying when people call her “Is-lah” but it’s so pretty.

What about Makinley or Maelyn or Maetin (we have friends with a daughter named Mailande)
or Tinsley or Kinley or Avalyn
@KatyElle: uhh, how’s it supposed to be pronounced? My first instinct would be Is-lah. Eyes-lah? edit: oh I just saw it in the post above

@KatyElle: In the end, that was a big reason we didn’t pick it. It was in our top 3 for a while.

@kala_way: Eye-la. It’s kind of like saying “Island”
I worried people would say it like “Izzla” or “Iss-la”

@kala_way: It’s pronounced Eye-luh. It’s a Scottish name.

@KatyElle: ah, I see, that is pretty. I guess to get the pronounciation all the time you’d have to change the spelling. Aila or something
