    But Madonna ruined the name Lola for me so I guess I'll cast a donkey vote.

    Why don't you try and come up with a name you both like?

    Thanks for the suggestion

    Maybe tell him what it rhymes with - I'm sure most dads of girls wouldn't like thinking their daughter might get that

    If I had to pick one of those two, I would choose Celeste, but I think choosing either could result in resentment from the parent that misses out, so you would be better off choosing a different name entirely and that way neither of you are winning over the other.

    And no, I dont think blending the names to get Cola or Loleste would work either. Go with something completely different, like Tatiana for example.

    Celeste sounds like an angel name, Lola sounds like a stripper lol but I do actually like both of them! Maybe think about what people might shorten them to?

    Lola! Celeste rhyms with incest and for some gross reason that's always the word that pops in my head when I hear it. Sorry!
