I love Alice but I can't use it because of issues with our surname... so I was wondering if people could suggest similar sounding names? many thanks!

Is you surname Rse? Or Psehit?

OK, I give up, I guess you're sure you can't use it. Just seems a shame. What about a silent H? Halice?

Alicia? Or is that too similar?

Katharine
Emily
Rebekah
Elinor
Matilda (thinking medieval here)
Joan/Jane?
Laura/Laurel
Mary/Marie/Maria
Una

I see Frances suggested - love Frances, so pretty, classic and uncomplicated!

We have an Alice.

I am Katherine Never really thought about our names going together but maybe they do.

I like Josephine. Just asked DH again and he said he still hates it.

DD's middle name is Charlotte which I think has quite a similar feel.

I am an Alice Cooper!

Although I was not born Cooper and I didn't change my name until I had been married for 8 years (and was 8 months pg). You know what? Nobody cares. One or two comments, but no one under 25 really knows who Alice Cooper the singer is.

DD1 is called Charlotte and Alice is on our short-list for DD2 along with

Lauren
Esme
Bronwen
Meredith
Caitlin

We have had the same short-list now for months and can't choose because we love them all - I am hoping inspiration strikes in the delivery room

I went to school with A.Pratt <snigger> I'm guessing yours is similar?

Friend with Alice also has a Lucie, which I think is a lovely name. Otherwise Jessica or Ella get my vote

You see that tab at the top of the page that says "acronyms"?

Go read it.

I think Alice is a simple,yet pretty name. Elsie is gorgeous! How about Daisy?

I haven't read all posts so not sure if already mentioned but how about Alison? Lovely name and hardly used these days.

I was going to say Ariella but guess that would have the same issue! How about Elena (elaine-a), felicity, Francesca, penny, safiya, Georgie, lexi... Ummmmm.... Nope, I'm out! :-)
Could you not change the A to an E? Elise? Elice? Ellis?

I've got a real thing about Sybil at the moment - I love it. How about that?

Bearcrumble Fri 25-Jan-13 19:08:17

Jeanne? Dora? Louise?

Also think of the names mentioned Hester has a similar feel.

MadBusLady Fri 25-Jan-13 21:20:01

I know exactly what you mean about Alice sparkling.

Other names that "sparkle" to me:

Cecilia
Viola
Phoebe
Felicity
Raffaela

MadBusLady Fri 25-Jan-13 21:21:36

Or Felicia, even more similar.

RobinSparkles Fri 25-Jan-13 21:27:13

I wonder what the OP went for in the end? Her DD will probably be 2 now!

Caitycat Fri 25-Jan-13 21:28:39

We have an Alice, the only other name we both liked was Freya. Hope you find something you love, it's so hard!
