Names to pick apart
Francesca Christine- I like Francesca. It's totally my kinda girl name- long and feminine and flowy. I like the nickname Frannie. I don't really love Christine because that is what my own name gets confused with.
Alexis- I don't hate it. I wouldn't use it. I used to love it, in the 90s. I feel like almost every family that has multiples, major multiples (4! 6!), there is an Alexis.
Stella Monroe- I like this a lot. I love Monroe with Stella. I love Monroe as a middle name.
Hudson Lee- I like Hudson. I think it's pretty "right now". Lee is a name that a lot of people in my family have. It's good together.
Caia- I don't love it. I really don't like the spelling.
Spencer- I have negative connotations to this name.
Rylan Jaxson- Rylan is okay. Jaxson, I like better as Jackson.
Maxfield Elliot- I like Max but not Maxfield. I'm not a huge fan of Elliot.
Jasmine Ines- Jasmine is the Disney princess. I guess I have no room to talk since I love the name Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) but I'm not actually going through with naming my child that.
