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?)

Thank you!

Congratulations! I like Emily but think Florence goes best with Alice.

I know an Alice with siblings Oliver and Tessa

I meant Cordelia rather than Cornelia... Newborn sleep deprivation...

So DC2 arrived on Wednesday and turned out to be a girl! unfortunately she is still nameless as DH and I don't have the same favourites.

The ones that we both like are:
Emily (but very popular at the moment)
Daisy (but too girly for a grown up in a serious job?)
Florence (a bit 'now'?)
Lydia (I'm a but put off by people on another thread saying it reminded them of chlamydia!)
Harriet (a bit harsh sounding?)
Cornelia (a bit pretentious?)

As you can probably tell, I don't absolutely love any of them so it's really hard to pick one - very grateful for all the comments so far and any more help would be appreciated!

Jane, Lydia, Laura and Eleanor are all nice with Alice.

I have Ellie, James & Alice.....and finding possibilities for a girls name nigh on impossible......i think we have the boys name sewn up with Teddy/Edward.

My girls longlist is

Iris, Mary, Beatrice, Emma, Katie, Susannah and Genevieve

but this will all change tomorrow when i wake up hating all of the above.....

Zoe < more outing>

I have an Alice Verity Violet who would have been Edward (Ted) if she was a boy grin

I have twins - Emma Catherine and Alice Violet. Their sister is Ava. If I had had a boy he would have been Edward (nn Ted).

I hadn't thought of the Children of the New Forest link between Alice and Edith BlueStars, but I did love the book when I was a child... And I like Marriedinwhite's suggestion of Edward (love Ned as a nn - thanks for that suggestion lovesmileandlaugh!) which would also be in keeping! I think DH is increasingly set on Tobias for a boy though...

Thanks everyone for all the food for thought!

Oh and just realised you'd like boys names too, Alice and Henry (my brother) sounds nice too. Or maybe I am too bias?!

alice93 Fri 19-Jul-13 21:38:37

Alice and Rose.
I'm Alice and my younger sister by 18 months is Rose. smile My other younger sister is Madeleine, but I'm not sure Alice and Madeleine go that well - our names are never together as I am the eldest and she the youngest of the 4 (one brother too!)

Alice and Tom or William. Also Theo is nice. Margaret?
Alice and Elizabeth. Alice and Kate. Agree Ned is good. Alice and Mary is excellent. James is not my favourite name but goes nicely I think.

It's all here. All I can say is that I think Alice and Ned sound sort of perfect wink
