I keep reading this combo as Rosemary
. I guess subconsciously I prefer that!Rosemarie Sienna
is a nice combo, though it's NMS. I don't love Sienna
, but I think it sounds better than Sophia
and agree that 5-10 years old is too young to honor, even though the intention is very, very sweet. I also think it's great that Sienna
holds such a significance for you and your SO.
If you wanted to try and honor your sister, though, you could try to find another name that means the same thing as Sophia
, which is "wisdom" in Greek. I think that could be a subtle way of honoring her without being too in your face about it.http://www.behindthename.com/php/search.php?nmd=mdu&terms=wisdom
