We need to agree on a name for DC2, to go with DD's name which is Alice. Any thoughts on these options please?

Eliza (does it sound too similar to Alice at the beginning?)
Emily
Matilda
Edith
Harriet
Nathaniel
Isaac
Tobias
Zachary
Laurence/Lawrence

Thank you!

Alice and Matilda or Harriet sounds lovely.

Don't like any of the boys options sorry. What about Alice and ....

Matthew
Theodore
Sebastian
Lucas
Edward (my favourite)
Oliver

Harriet <outs self> smile

I have Isobel and will shortly have Alice smile

Considered Eliza as a middle name for Alice, so I don't think they sound too similar and they're totally different names.

Also Edith is Isobel's middle name! Alice and Edith is very pretty smile

I know and Alice and Elodie.

I have an Elizabeth and and Isaac, and fancied Alice had Isaac been a girl. So I think you are definitely on track!

Love all of your names but IMO Eliza and Isaac are to similar in sound to Alice.

Thanks all, some helpful comments and also some alternatives I really like, esp Clara, Theodore and Edward. Isobel Edith is really pretty but I have a close friend with an Isabel so had ruled that out... It's so hard balancing all the different factors!

Eliza - love it but unfortunately I do think it sounds too close to Alice
Emily - nice
Matilda - love this too
Edith - OK
Harriet - love this
Nathaniel - too much of a mouthful
Isaac - not keen
Tobias - love this but again too many s sounds with Alice
Zachary - don't like this
Laurence/Lawrence - love this too there's the s sound thing again but because it has more syllables I think it's fine

Toby, Seth, Reuben, Gregory, Arthur???

Alice and Harriet
Alice and Lawrence would be my choices from your list but ultimately they will be living as separate individuals not a sib-set for the majority of their lives (hopefully!) so maybe similar sounding names don't really matter.

Harriet and Nathaniel. Lovely names

Alice & Eliza (does it sound too similar to Alice at the beginning?- slightly too similar IMO but could get away with it
Alice & Emily- bit boring personally
Alice & Matilda- love but Matilda is quite common now, wouldn't bother me as I love the name though.
Alice & Edith - don't like Edith, but they do go OK
Alice & Harriet - not keen but they do go

Alice & Nathaniel - not sure they go
Alice & Isaac - go OK, quite like Isaac
Alice & Tobias - I really like this, would he be Toby?
Alice & Zachary - Love this combo
Alice & Laurence/Lawrence - OK

Alice and Louisa (or Poppy or Daisy, or Imogen)

Edward but then am biased and your two children would sparkle. Hector, Oscar, James.

My first thought before reading the post was

Alice and Ned

I like Alice and Edith (though makes me think of the children of the new forest). Also think Alice and Harriet is lovely. Or Matilda in fact! I don't like Emily or Eliza.

For boys, I like Alice and Isaac, even though they're sort of similar sounding. Alice and Zachary goes well, though don't like the name so much. I'm not keen on the other boys choices.

Alice and Theo/Thea

insancerre Thu 18-Jul-13 07:50:13

I have an Alice and a Sam (uel)

PlantGirl Thu 18-Jul-13 08:56:43

I have an Alice and am considering an Eleanor or a Magnus

BeaWheesht Thu 18-Jul-13 08:59:45

With Alice and Eleanor don't you run this risk of Ali and Eli?

Marcheline Thu 18-Jul-13 22:49:28

I love Harriet but not sure if the overall sound is too like Alice? Dint know if that makes sence.

My immediate reaction to your thread title was Polly.

Alice and Polly.
