Third DD is due in the Autumn, what do you think of Agnes Juniper?
Sister to Martha and Greta...
I also love Ramona, but DH doesn't angry

I like it pronounced the French way but would that be pretentious?. Annyes. I think AGGnuss is dreadful.

Sorry don't like Agnes but I find Agatha softer

Love Agnes, not sure about Ramona

Ramona is a bit 'cross my palm with silver' for me. I like romy though.

LittleNoona Fri 21-Jun-13 22:34:42

Agnes goes beautifully with Martha and Greta actually, Ramona doesn't

What about juniper agnes? Agnes is so hard sounding and not nearly so nice as your other girls names. juniper is lovely though

Love Ramona! To my ears Agnes is quite harsh but I adore Inés (the Spanish/Portuguese version) and Inez (the Americanized version of the Spanish/Portuguese version smile)

I love Agnes.

Not many people I know agree tho.

LOVE it, wasn't allowed it though sad

I like it. But I have a youngish family member with the name so it's never seemed an old lady name to me.

Yes. Definitely!!

Dislike Agnes it's grey, drab and too old lady. Martha and Greta are older names but still nice. Ramona is lovely.

Daphne?

Love Agnes. A lot of people will associate it with Despicable Me but its a brilliant name smile

I love it! Love the other choices for your other DC too.

Agnes is beautiful, elegant and graceful - goes perfectly with your other two. Excellent choice.

Love Ramona.
Really dislike English pronunciation of Agnes.

How about:
Iris
Connie
Astrid
Ada

I really dislike Agnes. It's so harsh sounding. Ramona is nicer. Agatha is lovely.
