Rhona is a beautiful name, wish wish wish I had used it for one of my DCs. It is also my grandmother's name, but I never met her.

I like Edie x

How about Edna, that's the only one of my granny's generation that hasn't already been suggested and I quite like it

Oops just spotted it on bearandcub's list

Just read the vintage list and out of my 3dds' 6 names, 5 are on the list... 1 is German so wouldn't expect it to be there. Like the fact dh and I have chosen names with a link ;)

how about Lucile?

I love Lena but I'm biased.

was a six yr old Mabel at swimming. It sounded fab when her mum was talking to her.
