It's different. My daughters name is Nahlabelle Ambrosia, Some people think thats strange. My point is, Your child is different. It deserves a very beautiful and unique name, I love the name. What about Harlow Eveeh. Eveeh is pronounced Eve,but just different spelled :)

I like Harlow. I'm not sure about a middle name. Maybe use a family name?when it comes to naming kids there is a lot fo think about. Yes, your child is unique, but you want them to have an easy time with their name. I have an unusual name and I hate it. I've always hated it. I will always hate it. My mom regrets choosing this name for me because of how troublesome it has been.When my husband (who also has an unusual name and hates it) and I were thinking of names for our kids (Audrey, Harrison, and Vivienne) we put a lot of thought into it. We wanted traditional names that were easy to pronounce and easy to spell, but that weren't very common. (Viv may have trouble learning to spell her name but it was too pretty, I couldn't help it.) We also wanted names that weren't too trendy, and that worked on all ages. Put the name after "Baby", "Little", and "Grandma" to get a good idea of how it will work as your daughter grows. Think about how others will read and pronouce it and how others can make fun of the name.Unusual spellings cause trouble for everyone and make it impossible to buy personalized items at amusement parks, zoos, etc. While that may not seem like a big deal to you, it often is for kids. For some reason, my kids are obsessed with the name cups they have at Toys R Us, but their names aren't popular enough and aren't on the cups. They're only 2 and 3 1/2 and they're always bummed about it.
