Wobbling on chosen names.

We don't know if it's a boy or a girl, but both me and the OH made the decision a long time ago to choose two boys names and two girls names, then make the final decision when the baby is born to see which name 'suits' it best. Pretty rational and sane so far. Boys names are Luca and Sunny. Girls are Reenie and Georgie.
Now I'm 39 weeks and I am wobbling over these names we've both liked and have had chosen for ages. Trouble is, I feel bad telling the OH I might have changed my mind, as Reenie is a name we chose together in memory of his Mum (Irene).
I'm sure it's just my hormones and I will be wobbling about something else tomorrow, but argggghhh!
Any advice or opinions, please??

But Reenie isn't a name!

It's either short for Irene, when Irene is pronounced with three syllables, Eye-ree-nee.

Or it's a wrong alternative pronunciation of Renée.

I like Luca a lot. Georgie is sweet, and so is Reenie.

Can I suggest Irini, nn Reenie/Rini? Irene is actually pronounced this way in the original Greek; it can also be spelled Eirene. I actually love Irene anyway! I think it'll make a comeback, it has a very retro/hipster feel to it smile

Another vote for Georgia Irene.

I like Sonny and Luca!

Good luck with the birth and let us know what you choose smile

Thank you, everyone.
I am pleased to announce that our little girl was born on April 22nd!
We have called her Georgie Irene. She is perfect and doing so well
Sorry it's taken so long to get back on here, but have had a rough time after the birth and was in hospital for 5 days. Feeling near to normal now though and enjoying catching up and spending time and cuddles with Georgie grin

How about Jeanie?
Or Giannie? with an Italian accent

What about Irenie (nn Reenie) which sounds a bit more like a 'proper' name when she has to introduce herself as an adult?

Luca - Good
Sunny - Better spelt Sonny
Reenie - Dislike but ok as a middle name. If you spelt it Rene then that would be pn Ren-ay, whereas Reenie is reen-e.
Georgie - Good
