We have two girls both with short, feminine but strong names- think Thea, Edie etc. If we have another girl I would like to choose something a bit less girly. IYSWIM

I've been thinking...
Frankie- any other long names for this nn other than Frances?
Cameron- nn Cami
Joss
Jude
Jules
Eliette (wild card- pronounced Elliot)
Cleo?! (Cleona)
Charlie (DP does not like Charlotte- I love it, any other long names?)

Not a fan of the Ellie-Mae, Gracie-Lou kind of names (sorry). Do not like Sam, Max or Robyn for a girl

Thanks

Jocelyn to Joss is lovely.

My DD's name is Billie.
I named her after Billie Holiday.

I didn't use the long version. It is Billie on her birth certificate.

Frankie could also be short for Francine and Willow could be shortened to Billie.

I had a masculine girls name and, as quite a girly little girl, I hated it. Maybe something to consider? Might be worth having something that can be adapted to suit her if she's more girly?

Ah just read your pp and you've already thought of that, sorry!

Phillipa nn Pip
Roberta nn Bob
Samantha nn Sam
Michaela nn Mickey

My friend's dd's have masculine names (some of those above), they are late teens early twenties now and they hate them and always have especially in their early teens when they were teased about their sexuality because of them. Funnily enough her boys have girly names hmm or rather names that you assume are for girls first.

Matilda - Matty
Nicola- Niky
Natalia- Nat
Martine- Marty
Andrea - Andi

Ooooooooooh, Loving the idea of Willow- nn Billie! Good shout!
That's the problem horror I'd hate my child to be teased because of her name, or hate it herself. I want something socially acceptable, classless and not too difficult to write. If I had my own way I'd use Olive but I think she'd get teased.
So bloody hard!

Francesca/ Francine-Frankie
Willow- Billie
Jocelyn (although a bit of a faff to spell)- Joss
These are my big 3, I think!

Ursula, Una, not masculine names but not girly names. My cousin has a girl called Cameron.

thegreylady Tue 06-Aug-13 19:11:23

I love all of those MadB

MadBannersAndCopPorn Tue 06-Aug-13 19:23:12

Una- Lovely name- reminds me of Bridget Jones "Just stir it Una..."
It's too similar to dd's name to use though

Oubliette0292 Tue 06-Aug-13 19:37:16

How about Erica? You can use Ricky as a nn (and if she turns out to be a really girly girl, then Erica is the latin for Heather).

ellesabe Tue 06-Aug-13 19:52:14

I have a Cleo so obviously love it.

The only other name we toyed with was Astrid...

LindaMcCartneySausage Tue 06-Aug-13 19:57:29

I know ladies called Morgan. I always liked it.

The Billie I know was Christened "Elizabeth". Not sure how that came about, but Billie is a nice name.

Charlie, short for Charlotte?

Layl77 Tue 06-Aug-13 20:35:30

Henrietta
Ellis
Eden
Stevie
Frances
Matilda nn mattie

I like Billie, but would use Belinda rather than Willow for the long name, as I think it's really pretty and under used!

I love Rohan / Rowan

Billie is great for a girl!
