We have short one syllable last name and one dd Edith Rose. Having a section Thursday need to decide.

Frida Emmeline
Frida Iris
Eliza Violet
Violet Eliza
Eliza Jane
Ramona Jane
Ramona Violet

Any other suggestions?

Violet Eliza is gorgeous.

Really dislike Ramona, sorry.

Like Frida with both your combinations. Really nice.

eliza is lovely and perfect with Jane - if you want a flower name in the middle then Eliza Lily sounds pretty.

Violet Emmeline

Eliza Violet and Violet Eliza make me think of Violet Elizabeth Botts in the Just William books. "I'll thcream and thcream and thcream until I'm thick!"

Anonymumous Tue 22-Jan-13 13:17:30

Ramona Violet is lovely. If you're worried about the 'Mona' nickname, could you go for Romana instead?

Haywire Mon 21-Jan-13 19:19:30

Iris no way I will be having another after this one too old and tired for that! Thanks we love Edith it suits her so much.

Ficidiy DH likes Ramona but worries about the moany thing and his dad is a notorious nicknamer so can see where he is coming from.

Twinkle I don't think Violet will ever be up to Rose level of popularity we chose that for our dd 5 years ago and don't regret it she really likes having a middle name after such a lovely flower and often comments on it. Good luck to you with ttc we had a very bumpy journey getting number 2 to stick and it felt like the last chance for us due to age etc. hope it happens for you soon.

Think we will prob go with Eliza Violet but will see what this little one looks like when she arrives. Thanks for all the comments has helped with our deliberations smile

I'm hoping Violet as a middle name doesn't get too popular. It's been on my list as a middle name for nearly 10 years! Been ttc for 18 months of those 10 years.

Ficidy Sun 20-Jan-13 22:52:05

Of all those options, Ramona (with Jane or Violet - will the middle name be something you are going to use on a daily basis? Either way, they're both fine as middle names) is my favourite. It's on my list too, but dh is having none of it, unfortunately.

Iris1 Sun 20-Jan-13 21:14:18

Eliza Violet is gorgeous. Two wonderful names.
Having said that if Frida means so much to you you should go for it. Although Freida is perhaps nicer.
Also I'd be wary of having two children with the same initials if you're considering a 3rd at some point? Edith is beautiful.

NowPlayingZone Sun 20-Jan-13 20:00:59

Ramona violet- and I'll be jealous of you for choosing it! Love it, love it, love it!
Eliza violet is second fave.

HillBillySillyBilly Sun 20-Jan-13 14:41:45

Ramona Jane is just fabulous!

Haywire Sun 20-Jan-13 14:39:28

Thanks for the thoughts Eliza seems to be most popular amongst people on here but agree with pixie that along with Violet maybe it is a name gaining popularity generally. Does not bother me too much as we live in rural mid Wales so totally not popular around here!

I love Ramona for lots of reasons; the books, Scott pilgrim etc and it just sounds good but DH pointed out she will end up being called Mona or variations of which does not sound so good.

pixiestix Sun 20-Jan-13 11:23:13

LOVE Frida Emmeline, what an amazing name.

Eliza and Violet are so popular round here that they are starting to bring me out in hives so I'm not keen on any of those variations.

Ramona is a great name, really strong.

So my list would go
1. Frida Emmeline
2. Frida Iris
3. Ramona Jane

Congratulations and hope your section goes well thanks

Love Eliza Jane

LadyLetch Sun 20-Jan-13 10:34:25

Eliza is beautiful - I'd definitely choose that one. So pretty!

BoyMeetsWorld Sun 20-Jan-13 10:24:54

Eliza Violet

Or how about
Violet Emmeline?

twinklestar2 Sun 20-Jan-13 10:22:33

Eliza Violet

Violet will be my daughters middle name if I ever get bloody pregnant!

Haywire Sun 20-Jan-13 09:09:18

Yes have been pondering on the same initial thing myself. But do like Eliza and feel it sounds different enough to Edith as a name.

Glad people mainly like the name choices if we cant decide between them will have decide when we see hersmile

BouncyPenguin Sun 20-Jan-13 08:05:14

Love all your names. My niece is Edith Rosa. My DS1 would have been Ramona had he been a girl. Emmeline is lovely and reminds me of a character in Anne of Green Gables. Some people like giving their children names with the same initial eg Edith and Eliza. Personally I wanted to give my children names with different initials. I think it was for the same reason I gave them names that no one else I knew had. To give them their own identity. I know they will have this anyway so it's a bit of a silly concept of mine! But also had in mind that, as they grow older, when post arrives for them that we know who it is for without opening it first. But post usually has middle name initial too and again that's just me and not really a reason not to have choose lovely name.

Love Eliza Jane! But I think Eliza Iris also flows quite well if you want a flower middle name.

Allalonenow Sun 20-Jan-13 06:09:10

Frida Emmeline is absolutely super, and Ramona Violet is lovely too so is a close second.
Hope all goes well for you on Thursday Haywire.

mathanxiety Sun 20-Jan-13 05:53:39

Frida Violet would be lovely too. But I love Emmeline and the Pankhurst connection is a big plus.

bootsycollins Sat 19-Jan-13 22:54:50

Eliza Violet

Eliza Jane

Ramona Jane

Ramona Violet

Love Eliza and Ramona but think Ramona sounds lovely with your other dd's name, they just chime nicely together.

Poppins27 Sat 19-Jan-13 22:45:10

Eliza is such a lovely, pretty, feminine and slightly quirky name, I love it and it is definitely on my short list if I were to have another Dd...I also have a one syllable surname (not sure why I feel that matters?!)

I've not heard of Frida before, I do like it but to me it is more of a strong, less fussy name.

I do love the way Eliza and Edith sound together too... i envisage such lovely sisters :-)
