What are your thoughts on this girl's name?? We already have Aurelia Rose and Poppy Jessica, quite like 'unusual' names and also flower names? Baby due in just over a week and just can't decide! Btw, if it's a boy, we love Flynn.

Sounds made up to me

MardyBra Tue 09-Apr-13 23:29:52

Your other names are lovely btw.

ZenNudist Tue 09-Apr-13 23:30:20

Awful, and not real

Vijac Tue 09-Apr-13 23:33:10

I like the names you have but not the new one (daren't try and spell it from memory!). How about Holly, Primrose, Posy, Rose, Lily, Daffy or Skylark?

Is it a made up spelling of taylor?

PurpleStorm Tue 09-Apr-13 23:33:59

It sounds a bit made-up. And I'm not entirely sure how it should be pronounced. Looks like it should be Tea - Lah?
And it doesn't look like it fits very well with Aurelia and Poppy either.

Flynn's a nice name.

Vijac Tue 09-Apr-13 23:34:39

Oh yes, I like Flynn too.

According to google it is a name meaning watercourse.

But when I first saw it I'll admit I we tring to work out what it was a misspelling of, or whether it was a word backwards like nevaeh/heaven.

It just looks a bit wrong to me and doesn't really fit aurelia and poppy which aren't desperately unusual or off the wall (and that's a positive to me). They're pretty.

Flynn is great. I know a lovely 8yr old Flynn.

Daphne? Dahlia? Iris? Primrose? Flora?

Violet. Viola.

Slavetothechild Tue 09-Apr-13 23:46:13

Its my sisters name !!! Not a made up name at all its lovely smile its pronounced tee lah

Vijac Tue 09-Apr-13 23:47:59

Having just suggested Skylark, I'm not sure I'd actually recommend that one haha!

enjay0811 Tue 09-Apr-13 23:52:07

I think it's of Indian origin? slave can you confirm? it has been suggested by a family member and I thought it sounded made up too at first but is sort of growing on me. Just wanted others reactions so thanks for the feedback smile. Dh likes fleur but I think it just sounds like 'blur'?! It's so hard!

How about Tia or Talia?

Aurelia Rose, Poppy Jessica and...

Talia Briony
Coralie Miranda
Iris Julia
Aster Seren
Jasmine Louisa
Olivia Marianne

Quite like Talia but bit similar to my own name smile

Another on the shortlist is Bonnie but not sure?

Great suggestions xx

I think she'd feel jealous of her sisters. I don't like it sorry.

Pancakeflipper Wed 10-Apr-13 00:12:15

Constance would fit nicely.

ThePathanKhansAmnesiac Wed 10-Apr-13 00:15:08

Sweetpea.

Bartlebee Wed 10-Apr-13 00:19:56

I dislike it as it sounds made up, sorry.

I like Fleur though. I know a dog called Bonnie.

It's hideous.

pooka Wed 10-Apr-13 08:43:07

I don't like bonnie. It does, I'm afraid, make me think of a dog's name. Don't like fleur either.

Bronte?
Jasmine?

CheeseStrawWars Wed 10-Apr-13 08:55:55

Reminds me of Teela from He-Man.

Lydia goes well with the names you have, imo...
