Dp and I can not agree on names at all and its really starting to stress us out as she's due on Tuesday and we can't just call her baby!
He wants Olivia Grace
I want Jessica Jade nn JJ
Ds has come up with helpful suggestions like Parsnip and Blossom, both of which appeal to me more than Olivia!
Anyone got any suggestion we both might like?
Thank you!!

So dp and I have managed to agree that we both like Georgia! The problem now being that my cousin has a little boy called George, is it too similar?
Things can never be simple for us!

Depends if it is a cousin you see twice a week, or once a year.... I love Georgia but am a bit biased on that one! By the way she was nearly Jessica.

Harper is awful. Harpies, harp on about, harper barfer.... don;t do it. And Harper Leigh is silly because of Harper Lee. There are much, much nicer quirky names out there if you want to go quirky.

If you like Harper, what about Hester?

Georgia is lovely and I don't think it matters that your cousin has a George.
Really dislike JJ and Jade. Jessica is nice and although I used to like Olivia, there are just too many of them now.

My neighbor's child was called Olivia Grace, her nickname was Gracey/Gracie not sure how they spelt it. Almost no one knew her name was Olivia.

Georgia is too overused here, JJ isn't a good one IMO but quite like Olive.

What about Hattie or Cassia?

What about Georgina - slightly more different from George and you can call her GG if you like alliterative nns?

Hester is cool! Or Leah? Or if he likes Harper Lee (sounds like he does!) what about Jean Louise (Scout's real name) or Nelle (Harper Lee's first name)

I agree if you see George a couple of times a year, go for Georgia. If you see him often, I wouldn't.

Other names you and hubby might like:
Elena
Tamsin
Adele
Brooke
Gemma
Eloise
Amber

The other advantage of Georgina is that it also shortens to Gina.

Or even Jean, which I think is due a renaissance.

Blossom is actually a name!

Olivia Grace - very popular names but middle class concervative

Jessica Jade - quite rough family names

What about Tess Jasmine

Georgia is lovely and I don't think it will be a problem that she has a second cousin called George.

Prefer your DH's choices to yours.

Grace is lovely.

Jessie J? I think that's taken!

A friend of mine has a little one called Olivia but they call her Libby which I think is cute. Georgia is fine if you arnt going to see George every weeksmile
