Hi, our 2nd baby girl is due in 3 weeks and am still pondering a short list of names. DH and I have a little girl named Honey who is almost 4 and needless to say the style of names we like are a little unusual. I'm looking for something which will fit in nicely with Honey, I guess you could say cutesy, although I do like unusual classic names as well. Current short list is as follows - grateful for the Mumsnet view! !

Bluebell
Blossom
Arabella
Perla
Angelica (angel as nickname?)
Peony (like this - DH doesn't!)
Lola

Suggestions and opinions please!

Arabella is lovely. What about Meadow?

Lol - Bea is DD's middle name!

I adore Bluebell, we both do but have read quite a few views on the name on old mumsnet discussions and other websites and its usually shot down in flames....

Willow

Lola was on my list but then I got put off by eastenders and decided I liked Lila/Lyla instead (but oh said no)

Arabella is lovely but I dislike bella which it would likely be shortened too

Bluebell is lovely with Honey.

Honey is a beautiful name!
Love bluebell and blossom... DH would HATE these suggestions but he's boring hehe
Loved the Meadow suggestion... Willow?
How about Coco, Rosie, Amber, Flora, Daisy, Faune, Honoré?

Petal, Fleur, Juniper, Willow, Wren, Robin, Sage, Saffron, Autumn?

Thank you chatty!

Willow is a nice addition to the list.....

Loving the suggestions ladies!

What about Summer

TallulahBetty Mon 26-Aug-13 09:39:50

Blossom from your list.

How about Holly?

Bluebell - not keen not because of geri halliwell,oh no
Blossom - yep but honey and blossom sounds bit contrived
Arabella - dislike though i adored mortimer the raven
Perla - quite nice but makes me think of jeans
Angelica (angel as nickname?) angel as nn gets my vote as then both kids have endearments but not a rugrat name - much prefer Evangeline (Angelina = ballerina or ms Jolie)
Peony (like this - DH doesn't!) me neither, prefer Poppy or Petal am not Jules Oliver
Lola - like

Halle?

Great ideas, thanks all. We will get there....

Toast is lovely with Honey.

Not Blossom, that's a dreadful name.

Honey and Lola sounds okay but maybe a bit porn stary?

From your list I would go for either Honey and Willow or Honey and Bluebell

Coconutty! Her DD1 is Honey! Nice work hmm

Coconutty Mon 26-Aug-13 10:29:51

I really like the name Honey so you can keep your eye rolling, thanks.

I just think that the two names together maybe sound too much. IMO.

SoupDragon Mon 26-Aug-13 10:37:49

I would avoid flower names with Honey.

Freshnclean Mon 26-Aug-13 10:52:34

No problem Coconutty, I can see what you mean

Ok... Sorry it sounded like you thought it (and Lola) weren't nice. Misunderstanding.
