    I want to name the baby if it's a girl Cadence Elle, but my boyfriend doesn't like it, he said it sounds like a drum cadence...lol.

    He likes Kristen Rayne. I don't like it because his closest friend that's a girl's name is Kristen.

    Which one?

    I like Kristen Rayne best but they're both nice. I understand why you wouldn't want to call her that though! x

    I love Cadence but not so sure about Elle. Maybe a compromise of Cadence Rayne. Kristen is a name I associate with our generation not babies today.

    I LOVE Cadence Elle!!!! That is so pretty! :thumbup:

    However, I will say that I have read your other post about him feeling that you will not let him be a dad so maybe you guys can some to a compromise on this one. I would definitely stick to your guns about not using the name of his friend but if you find a happy medium on a name you can both agree on, it may make life easier for you in the long run.

    :hugs:

    How about Kirsten? Or Kerstin? Or Christina? I wouldn't want to name the baby after someone that's in mine or OHs life a lot either. But maybe if you could find something similar it would make him feel like you value his opinion without using a name you don't want.

    agreed
    Not sure why but Elle just doesn't fit here. I think its the ending C/S sound with a vowel middle name that sounds off.
    And I was thinking the same thing; Comprimise with Cadence Rayne.

    Cadence Elle flows a bit like "Caden sell" because of the two e's together after the soft c sound. It's difficult and doesn't flow quite right

    Cadence is a noun, referring to sequence of notes which indicates the end of a musical phrase. In 2002 it started appearning as a name trend, though it is not technically a traditional name. I would suggest Caroline or Cassandra instead. Also, Cadence Elle smushes together to create the sound "cadencelle". If you're dead set on Cadence I would suggest a new middle name. How about Cadence Amelia or Cadence Olivia?

    I understand that you don't want to use Kristen because of the familiarity. I would feel the same way. How about Christina Rayne or Kirsten Rayne as alternatives?

    It may be best to just start from scratch and find a name that you BOTH love!

    But if that's not an option, how about....Elle Kristen?

    That way, you both get a name that you love, it flows great, and Kristen is in the middle name spot so you don't have to worry about your friend.
