What would you name Sam's sister?

I'm about 13 weeks pregnant and have a feeling this one is a girl. smile And I don't like any girl names! DH and I have kicked around Madeleine and Annabel, nn Annie, but I don't know.

DS is Samuel Robert.

Names that are a no go because we have considered them and rejected them or because they belong to family:

Nora
Emily
Kate
Jane
Claire
Rebecca
Anne
Julia
Hannah
Susannah
Louisa
Frances
Vanessa
Ella/Eleanor (really any El name)

I think that's it! smile Any ideas? It doesn't have to be "matchy" with Sam but I want something with sort of the same vibe IYKWIM. If it's a boy we like Jack (not as popular here!) Charles (Charlie) or William.

Just not Ella. That is all I will say

Not Ella! ...Sam 'n Ella ...

CheerfulYank Tue 13-Nov-12 22:03:50

His cousin is Ella so that is out regardless! smile

I know a Sam and Amy

We have a Charlie William. I know it's common but I love it! How about
Coralie? Rosa? They were my girls names, but I will now have no girls sad

The Sams I know in RL have sisters called Rachel, Sophie and Holly.

Sam & Sophie sounds nice unless you don't want them to both be S's?

I do like Sophie but my mother "insisted" on it and I said "absolutely not" flatly because she's a meddling old bat. hmm (She's actually not old at all grin) I told her I didn't want two S's (growing up as a Megan with an older brother Matthew it got annoying at times), mostly because I don't think we'll be done at two. I feel like it's strange when some siblings have the same initial and some don't. I know, I know! I have strange naming quirks. blush Though I did know a set that were Alex, Andy, Ethan, and Emma, and that was okay because they were balanced.

Molly sprang to mind first.

CheerfulYank Wed 14-Nov-12 12:07:50

Molly is nice but I knew a nasty one at school! smile Still, it is definitely the "sort" of name I'm looking for IYSWIM.

CheerfulYank Wed 14-Nov-12 12:09:47

Oh and also our last name is a noun (and a very short and somewhat harsh sounding one at that) so I feel that any flower or color or gem names are out.

And Rose names are doubly out, though I do love Rosie. sad I have a very unstable aunt called that. She's my mother's sister and it just is not worth the grief my mom would give me!

Caroline
Catherine
Margaret/meg
Mary

Sam and Rebecca is a great combination. Louisa and Vanessa also good. Or how about Natasha?

Just realised your list is a 'no list', sorry. Okay, how about Natasha!!!
