Ella Rose is beautiful.

BabyRoger Thu 07-Feb-13 18:33:18

I prefer Scarlett too - although Ella is nice.

Scarlet Iris or Scarlett Grace is lovely.

Thanks everyone. I'm still stuck on which to choose, maybe we will have to wait and see what baby looks more like when he/she arrives. I may never have to choose as we already have a boys name. I am aware that scarlett rose basically means red rose but I don't think that's the worst thing in the world and I never even really use my middle name. The only thing putting me off scarlett is if anyone shortens it to scar. X

People can think of other middle names puff but rose is very pretty and goes with a lot. I think they are all nice names op, depends if you are planning on calling her by full name or mainly first name. I really like Scarlett, good strong female name but pretty. No need to buy a name book when you can come here for advise!

Ella Rose (as RG said, despite its popularity)

mrstowers Tue 05-Feb-13 22:48:09

Aren't Scarlett and Rose both the colour red?

Rhubarbgarden Tue 05-Feb-13 22:39:45

I prefer Ella despite its popularity. I really dislike Scarlett.

pinkyredrose Tue 05-Feb-13 22:23:36

I think Rose is a beautiful name. At least it's not as common as May/Mae!!

almostanotherday Tue 05-Feb-13 21:57:32

Scarlet hope is nice

Elina rose I like if thats any good for you?

PuffPants Tue 05-Feb-13 21:40:47

Why can nobody think of any middle name other than Rose these days? Get yourself a baby names book OP.

pinkyredrose Tue 05-Feb-13 21:39:20

Scarlett Ava makes me think of Scarlett anus, 'red anus'. sorry blush

pinkyredrose Tue 05-Feb-13 21:37:45

Scarlett Rose is lovely. Ella is so popular, Scarlett is a bit different.

HouseOfBears Tue 05-Feb-13 21:35:05

Scarlett Ava is lovely. Heaps nicer than Rose. As long as your surname doesn't start with a D!

ditsydoll Tue 05-Feb-13 15:06:02

Thanks for the advice ladies, would Scarlett Ava sound ok? Our surname is a common 3 syllable surname.

DontmindifIdo Tue 05-Feb-13 13:18:52

Prefer Scarlett, but not with Rose, agree it sounds like a discription!

Alternative middle names that work with Scarlett:
Scarlett Ruth
Scarlett Grace
Scarlett Hope
Scarlett Jane
Scarlett Marie

X post. Great minds smile

ThedementedPenguin Tue 05-Feb-13 13:14:10

My friend called her daughter Scarlett Jane which I think it's very nice.

AngelaCatalano Tue 05-Feb-13 13:13:54

Prefer Scarlett too. Also Stella and Serena if you're interested in other S names. Don't think Scarlett Rose is great. How about
Scarlett Jane or Scarlett Hope?

forevergreek Tue 05-Feb-13 13:13:46

I think With Ella rose they same length and syllables can sound a hit choppy

What about:
Eliana rose
Elisa rose

Ella rosemary
Ella something rose

I know a few children called Scarlett rose. So it's v common combination I that bothers you

Scarlett theodora
Scarlett iris
Scarlett elsa

Scarlett does make me think Scarlett fever though! Sorry..

poppydaisy Tue 05-Feb-13 13:09:22

Ella is a little overused round here, I'm afraid. Scarlett is more interesting but always makes me think of a little scar.... So I'm not that keen on either, sorry.

JiltedJohnsJulie Tue 05-Feb-13 12:24:29

Scarlett rose for me.

ditsydoll Tue 05-Feb-13 12:21:13

Thanks ladies, I can't actually think of a middle name for scarlett other than rose. Any ideas?

Gwennan Tue 05-Feb-13 12:19:14

Tough one - both are pretty names but Ella is ubiquitous and Scarlett Rose sounds a bit twee. I would use a different middle name with Scarlett (one that isn't a noun) as Scarlett Rose sounds a bit like a description.

ThedementedPenguin Tue 05-Feb-13 12:17:16

Oh that's a very tough choice for me. They are both gorgeous names.

I think for me it would be Ella Rose.

But it is a tough choice.
