I like etta

Me too,I always have...I worry it's about to become popular though.
Could be the new Emma/Ella apparently. sad

I love Sylvie and Elsa but I am not keen on the rest.

Personally, I wouldn't worry about that. What about marron?

I love Sylvie, Etta and Elsa. Pippa is also very nice. Not keen on the others, sorry.

Vita is nice too.

Elsa for me

My favourites are Etta, Romy, and Merryn.

I do like Rita too though, and Elsa and Sylvie.

Love Sylvie - my gran was a Sylvia so was tempted but it didn't work with surname. Also like Vita.

Etta, Elsa or Merryn for me.

It's so tricky...my favourite names are Maude,Agnes,Tabitha,Mildred,Ida,Mabel,Myrtle,Betsy,Agatha et al....
but I think they are too dissimilar to Skye.

I'm trying to balance between a name I love,and a name that won't sound completely odd next to her sisters.

I like Etta as well. What difference does it make if it becomes popular? If you do it now you'll be ahead of the trend :P

Nell, Ivy or Sylvie. All very pretty.

Rhine my aunt is a Sylvia...I'm hoping no one will pay much attention to the connection,as we haven't used any 'family' names at all- there are too many traditions in both our family's and if we used one,we'd have to use the others and then we'd have no say in our DC names at all grin

Skye and Arlo go absolutely fine with Betsy, Tabitha, Ida, and maaaaaybe Mabel.

miv I was one of fecking dozens with my name at school,I hated it. I don't want a name that will end up being over popular.

Do you really think so orange??

Merryn/Merry is cute and I like Nell as a nn for Helena/Elinor. Like Sylvie. Zinnia and Rita are terrible, sorry.

Zinnia and Rita have been on and off the list a few times Remus wink
Nell wouldn't be a nn for anything,just Nell.

Etta or Elsa for me from your list.

Suggestions:

Skye, Arlo and Irma
Skye, Arlo and Lorna
Skye, Arlo and Hebe
Skye, Arlo and Marissa
Skye, Arlo and Eden
Skye, Arlo and Juliet

Have you posted under a different username before? I recognise the names and you were talking about IF you had a 3rd child, late 2011 ish time?

Congrats and Etta is my fav grin

VAVAV00M Mon 06-May-13 20:31:02

I like Hebe too,but DP can't help himself with the Hebe Jeebies jokes hmm
