DD2 is due on less than a week, and we don't have a name. We must have gone through every name in existence but are totally uninspired.

DD1 is called Aurelia.

Middle names will be Caroline Penelope.

We quite like Isabella but dont feel as though it's 'the one' like Aurelia was. May end up settling with it if we can't find anythig else, but that feels wrong.

I've had two other threads in baby names already and there were lots of great suggestions, but nothing that stuck. I don't are about a name being popular or different, just want to find the right one!

Other 'quite like' names are Claudia, Francesca, Harriet and Natalia. I don't feel like any of them are right.

Please help me!

Seraphina
Marguerite
Henrietta

(but mostly Seraphina)

I put up a thread recently entitled 'Camille... And other options'. My favourite names are on that if you want to have a look, but I also have others that I like too. They are...

Lena
Elsa
Celyn
Aida
Charlene
Ines
Rena
Greta
Mara
Alysandra
Vivienne
Arlys
Halle

You must be so frustrated and fed up at this stage. Good luck!

Seraphina is lovely.

How about Ishbel instead of Isabella?

Or Astrid

Marcheline Wed 13-Feb-13 21:48:25

I have been toying with Seraphina, I'll suggest it to DH. Love evangeline but he doesn't, I also really like Talia.

Paloma is gorgeous, but again he doesn't like.

Thank you so much for the suggestions, yes I am getting a bit fed up now smile

Araminta, Seren, Angelica, Asha or Ash, Matilda.
Run out of ideas now!

Tabitha? One last one!

ZolaBuddleia Wed 13-Feb-13 21:53:15

I knew an Aurelia whose sister was called Venetia. Love Seraphina.

Delphine?

Vivian?

amck5700 Wed 13-Feb-13 22:00:28

Leonora?
Evelyn
Arrabella
Ariadne

Aethelfleda Wed 13-Feb-13 22:00:34

Jessamy?

(I loved that name but DH was having none of it...)

Marcheline Wed 13-Feb-13 22:00:47

Ooh Tabitha! I'd forgotten how much I love that (does it matter that I had a cat called Tabitha?)

I suggested Araminta and DH thought I was joking...

Venetia seems a bit 'serious' for me, I really like Vivian but know a truly awful girl with that name so couldn't use it.

Ha ha! Minty for short! Very Enid Blyton.

Ooh grin have I found the one?!?!

Marcheline Wed 13-Feb-13 22:02:11

I was friends with a girl at school called Jessamy, don't think I could use it because it is so inextricably 'her'

Really lovely name though.

DHs are no fun.

I know a whole lot of babies named isabelle\ isabella what about;
Tabitha, Beatrice, Elodie, Claudia, Jemima, Celeste, Camille, Angelica, Agatha, Arabella, Polly, Martha, Sabella, Florianne and Harriet.

CaseyShraeger Wed 13-Feb-13 22:06:00

ZolaBuddleia, I bet I know the same family. There can't, surely, be too many Aurelia/Venetia sibling combos? My DD1 is friends with Aurelia!

Viviennemary Wed 13-Feb-13 22:07:29

I quite like Natalia. Venetia is very nice too and unusual. I love Pandora but don't know any. Also Iris, Violet, Rosalie.

YY Violet is so so lovely.

NowPlayingZone Wed 13-Feb-13 22:09:52

I'll add: Ottilie, Delphine, Lorelei, Emmeline, mariella, valentina & Dolores
