I need some help. I'm 36 weeks pg with DD2 & we can't think/agree on a name.
DD1 is called Florence & we're pretty uninspired for this one.
So far we quite like:
Martha
Matilda
Eliza (DH is not keen on this one).
Any comments on these or suggestions would be gratefully received!

HelpOneAnother - I like all those names. Jean always reminds me of watching the prime of miss jean Brodie as a child.

Ooh I love Margo/Margot. Definitely time for bringing that back (I can't with my surname but I think it's beautiful)

Resisting saying Ermentrude (and showing my age) I think any of the classic similar length names would work. Florence is actually avery pretty name, but coming from a house that only owned a VCR so as to record The Magic Roundabout leaves it's scars.

Eugenie springs to mind and Jenni is a cute NN.

I love Rosalind Rosamund and similar.

Harriet, Ottilie, Rebecca, Isabella, Beatrice, Charlotte, Elizabeth or Bryony spring to mind.

Thanks Mumsnet! I really like Margot & Rose. DD's suggestion was Rosie Hermione Grainger!!

Henrietta?

I like your three names OP.

Florence was set to be DS2's name (if a girl!)

I also like
Mabel, Agnes, Edith, Constance, Cecily, Harriet.

Felicity?

I think Matilda is a beautiful name

Linda?

Paris, or another place name?

There are sisters Florence and Hermione at DS2's nursery.

I am actually a Florence but telling you my sisters name would completely out me. grin

Harriet
Clementine
Hester
Coco
Rosamund

Or if you want to keepan Italianate place name theme - how about:
Venetia

There's also Sienna but I don't like that as much.

I know of sisters Florence and Hadley, if you were after a completely different vibe!

Hulababy Sat 08-Dec-12 08:38:36

I really like Martha and Matilda and think both sound nice with Florence.

I know a child called Florence and her sister is Ophelia.

How about Florence & Fleur? I guess they mean the same thing, but I think they sound nice together.

Lavinia?

My great aunts were Florence, Mabel and Edith!
