A reader named Liz is expecting a baby girl and she’d like some help coming up with a name. Here are some details:
- Liz likes “traditional names that are not the type of name the person wearing it will be teased for,” such as Amalia, Charlotte, Sofia and Louisa/Louise.
- Liz’s husband like “names that sound cute for a little kid but good for an adult,” such as Grace, Beatrice and Nathalie. (Liz doesn’t care for Beatrice/Beatrix, though.)
So far, Louise/Louisa is the only name both Liz and her husband can agree on.
Here are some other names that I thought might work:
No name is immune to teasing, but I did bump Harriet, which is dangerously close to “hairy.”
What other names would you suggest to Liz?
