Names...

So, we're having another baby girl! I really want to name her Ivy, but I'm stuck on a middle name. My only option right now is Louise (a family name), which I like, but I'm not sure they go well together.
Another name I like is Emogen/Imogen (for a first name)...anyway, take my poll and help me out!

Im-o-jen

The middle "o" sound isn't super long, it's more of an "uh" sound.

Re: Names...

Did you get Imogen from the singer? I think it's a cool name but it always throws me off guard becuase even though I know how it's pronounced I always end up saying a hard g.

I do like Ivy though .

I actually saw it in a name book, and then realized there was a singer w/ the name.

I like Ivy too. It's less confusing, I know a lot of people who see it (Imogen) spelled don't really know how it's pronounced...

Plus, not too keen on "Gen" as a nn.

Re: Names...

Hey! I just had a baby girl in May and named her Imogen! We pronounce it Im-o-gin...I call her Imogen (her full name), but my mom and a lot of my fam calls her imi for short. It's SO SO SO cute! I really love the name, but prior to the birth (we didn't reveal the name) I was having second thoughts because I knew it would be a name that 'no one has heard of'...but we went with it and LOVE it. I couldn't imagine her having any other name!

Good luck
