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!

PieEyed, isn't it amazing how up to date those names look? Maybe with the exception of Ethel.
I know a little Hephzibah.

Annabel
Antonia
Constance or Constanza
Cornelia
Christabel
Genevieve
Vivienne
Katherine
Stella
Hazel
Helena
Leonora
Laurel
Lyra
Evelyn
Melisande
Rosalind
Linnea
Tess or Tessa
Penelope
Madeleine
Honor

Some lovely names on this thread.
Of the names you have in mind, OP, I like Matilda and I think it goes really well with Florence. I like Eliza but I think Elizabeth goes better with Florence. I'm not keen on Martha at all.

My youngest cousin is Rosie (Rosemary on her BC, but always Rosie).

I wasn't sure about it when she was born and I was 15, but it has really grown on me. It has a timeless charm that Lily, poppy and Daisy probably don't have.

It certainly goes well with Florence.

Florence & Vanessa

My Florence's sister is called Scarlett and her middle name is Ottilie.
We like them!

I know a Florence, her sister is called Joyce, they go together nicely i think.

I know sisters called Florence and Rose. Names work really well together and separately.

Ha! Loving these comments. My DD1 is Florence and DD2 is Matilda Martha! (I'm inadvertently a mumsnet cliche!)

I had loads of lovely comments about DD2's name. Oh and if there was ever a DD3 <hopeful, maybe, one day> I'd like her to be Audrey. And DD2 was nearly Meredith (LOVE this!) but DH wasn't sure.

Not sure if that's helpful or not? smile

My grandmother's sister was Florence. She was Ruth, and they had a cousin called Silvia.

Of the three, I loooove Sylvia.

Matilda is nice. Maybe Elizabeth instead of Eliza?

My great aunts were Florence, Mabel and Edith!

Lavinia?

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

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.
