We are expecting DD2 in early April.

DD1 is Hazel.

DH would like another loosely based earthy/nature themed but not too matchy.

He has come up with Celeste (means heavenly). I can't decide, what do you think??

I have thought about:
Iris/Ivy: too trendy? Also think too matchy with Hazel.
Poppy/Daisy/Rosie: too cutesy and too popular
Stella/Estelle/Violet: I love DH hates.
Heather: too matchy with Hazel.

Any other suggestions?
What do you think of Celeste?
Middle names for Celeste? I was thinking:
- Celeste Elizabeth
- Celeste Opthelia
- Celeste Verity

Thanks!

So very helpful, thank you!

Had though of Laurel, but worry that with the -el endings its too much with Hazel IYSWIM. But a lovely name.

I have added Robin, Astrid to the short list.

LOVE Amber whoever suggested that but it rhymes with our surname and sounds ridiculous.

I know a Rowan and love the name, although the first question I asked her on hearing her name was 'were your parents hippies?' she smiled politely and said yes.... She probably should have given me a slap...
I know a rain and fawn too. I think fawn is beautiful.

I like Robin as a girls name

ethelb Sat 24-Nov-12 11:38:48

I like similar names and I really like Eden and Astrid.

Flora and Fern are good.

Luna? Not great conotationsbut nice name.

I like Celeste too.

Not a nature name but I think Dorothy sounds really nice with Hazel smile

Don't really like celeste Tbh. Iris is lovely.

I like Celeste, unusual, go for it. Elizabeth is my favourite of the middle names you gave. The others seem a bit of a mouthful imo.

Hazel and Sable don't really sounds very good together.

marshkat Sat 24-Nov-12 11:16:35

We were thinking of Sable as its different and very nature inspired. But im not totally convinced. Yet!!

DessieLou Sat 24-Nov-12 11:11:25

I like Celeste and Fearne. And I know it's not a nature name but I think Hazel and Faith sounds nice.

Rachog Sat 24-Nov-12 10:51:41

I agree with sausage Erica is lovely as are fearne and willow.
