I like my DCs names to go together but still be individual. Beatrice and Alice sound too similar for me. Love Harriet and would have used it for any of my 3, but DH vetoed due to a childhood connection!

Thanks for your suggestions everyone!

I particularly like Matilda, Iris and Harriet.

It's given me some food for thought...

I have a Beatrice and recently gave birth to DC2. He's a boy so I didn't get to use my girls name.....Audrey Rose. I think Beatrice and Audrey sound great together.

How about Lilian? My 2 year old niece is called Lilian Beatrice and I think they sound lovely together

Alice is not bland! All names are bland when uninhabited by a person -- but imagine any of the women you know who are actually bland and then imagine they are called Alice and it makes them seem less bland!

I like Alice but agree its lovely but just a bit bland. I think Matilda goes nicely.

Juliet
Margaret

a strong name, but I wouldn't go for another nam ending in 'ice' isss.

delilah88 Thu 27-Dec-12 15:53:13

Alice is lovely!

DebK2012 Thu 27-Dec-12 15:38:17

What about Alisa as a variant form of Alice envy

SurreyWithAFringeOnTop Thu 27-Dec-12 14:17:32

Alice is lovely, not overly exciting but lovely.

Florence is very 'of the moment' - too faddy for me.

Not sure about Tabitha - a bit prissy.

How about Iris? Or Harriet (Hattie), Violet (Lettie)?

ManicMuppetMania Thu 27-Dec-12 13:51:44

Florence and Tabitha are both lovely!
How about......

Emmeline
Cordelia
Romilly
Juniper
Matilda
Lucia

Like Alice the best. Too many Florences! How about something like Louisa? Austenesque in the same was as Bea but not too common?

LynetteScavo Thu 27-Dec-12 13:17:57

Alice.

Beautiful and timeless. smile

Florence is also nice.

i'm due in a couple of months. I think we've sorted our boys name, but still struggling a bit with girls names. This is our short list. Middle name is likely to be Rose.

Alice (timeless or boring?)
Florence (too popular? This is probably the front runner, but I'm really not keen on its associated nicknames)
Tabitha (DH to be convinced!)

Any thoughts gladly received! Thanks smile
