Baby no-name! Please help!

Hi all,

We are trying to pick a name for our new baby daughter and are rapidly running out of time.

We have narrowed it down to the list below but hubby and I do not agree.

He likes
Skye, Eden, Morgan, Amber and Ruby and I like Thea, Skye, Arabella and Beatrix.

The only crossover we have is Skye but it is not our favourite of each of our respective lists.

I may eventually post our list of 'dismissed' names but it is over 500 names long so it will not be today.

The criteria is that the name must be quite simple and easy to spell as we are fine with "that is unusual", but want to avoid "how do you spell that?"throughout their lives.

We already have an Oliver and a Leila and our surname starts with "A" so that migh be a consideration.

Any help would be appreciated.

We only have until 16th to name her so a rapid response would avoid "baby X" on the birth certificate.

HELP HELP HELP!!!

Skye
Eden
Morgan
Amber
Ruby
Thea
Skye
Arabella
Beatrix

Random.

I thought of another for my F list - Flavia.

But Skye and Eden are apparently beautiful places.

What an odd, arbitrary measure of what's ok as a name confused

So it's ok to name a child after a stone, but not a place?

No it's OK to name a child after something precious.

Whoops!!

Ruby is too popular at the moment. There are three in one reception class at school.

Nearly forgot- Mabel

If you both like Skye then go for that,but of you're asking then the nicest ones from your list are Arabella and Thea IMO.
Few more suggestions
Ivy
Edith
Elsie
Victoria
Someone else said Primrose I think that is beautiful too
Good luck and as another poster said see what suits her smile

sashh Wed 15-May-13 06:43:45

Skye - it's a place not a child
Eden - it's a place in the Bible, not a child
Morgan - isn't that a car?
Amber - semi precious stone, should it be a precious stone?
Ruby - precious stone - OK as a name
Thea - sounds like it's missing an ending

2 propper names and IMHO fit well with your other children's names

Arabella
Beatrix

What about three names that initialise to SKY?

Sophie Keira Yvonne. You and dh get to chose one name and depending on the ages of your other children let them have a choice too.

Kirstoll Mon 13-May-13 20:04:59

I like willow, savannah, sapphire, seren, astrid, poppy, ginevra, Hollie, primrose... I sound like a hippy smile I have an Isabella Rose

forevergreek Mon 13-May-13 19:44:36

Estelle? Means star and can have Stella as nn.

Skye/ skylar/ saskia?

JojoMags Mon 13-May-13 19:36:32

Does skye suit her? Can't help thinking if you really liked it you'd have settled on it before now! I love Harriet and you could shorten it to Hattie/Hatty or Hettie. There was a thread on here recently that included Anais. Just thought I'd mention it as its unusual and lovely! I like Beatrix on your list. Let us know what you decide smile

spidermanspiderman Mon 13-May-13 19:08:53

I have always loved Freya but dh vetoed it early on. Same with Freida and Fritha.

We both love Harriet but it just isn't the right fit.

Skye is looking more and more likely.
