DD2 is due in Feb and we are really struggling to find a name we both love. DD1 is Rosanna, love this as it is unusual but easy to pronounce and we can also use Rosie as a nickname. I want to love DD2's name as much but so far nothing seems to be quite right.

So far the shortlist is:
Amelia
Bethany
Esther
Leah
Leila
Lydia
Sophie

Lots of lovely names including Phoebe, Eva, Grace and Zoe have been used by close family.

I would really appreciate comments and suggestions as I'm sure the right name is out there but we just haven't found it yet!

They are all really pretty names, I especially like Lydia and Esther.

DC2 was going to be Ailsa, if a girl. I still love the name.

Andrea, goes well with Rosanna.

Thanks for your suggestions, I really liked Elizabeth but Dh not keen. Hadn't thought of Sylvie but really like how it sounds.

I like Lydia and prefer Bethan to Bethany. Rosanna is fab! How about:

Meredith
Tamsin
Helena
Louisa
Hester

Rosie and Molly
