Hi there, so had my 21 week scan today and it's a girl! I was CONVINCED it was a boy but it's not it's a girl (it's a girl!).

Okay so over the shock now... so here's the question, what is James' and Isabella's little sister called?
I need a name that isn't as popular as my first two choices, which is as lovely as Isabella (because I love it), can't have an 'r' in middle, such as Zara as surname begins with R and then it sounds a bit rarara.

Here's two of my contenders:
Georgia (has r in middle but isn't final consonant so works okay)
Poppy (cute but maybe not classic enough?)

DH likes:
Sophie (already taken)
Chloe (meh for me)
Emily (too popular) because he wants to call her Lemony!

Oh yeah and the surname is actually one syllable and begins with 'Ro' so like names that contain an 'o' but this is not completely necessary.

Help!

Gosh thank you so much everyone, I love so many of your suggestions! I am going to print the thread and make a great long list. I am also going to force my DH to read it!

Not to get too gushy but I really love this board and all the people who take their time to make suggestions and help each other out - it's really nice :-)))))

All of these seem to 'fit' well with your other children's names.

Apologies for resurrecting my own thread but I couldn't find it and had to scroll through loads of pages! I've now got 3 weeks to go and still no name chosen so I want to be able to refer to your suggestions when baby comes. I think I need to see her face, her name changes every day (literally).

I like Susannah rather than Susanna because I think the 'h' creates a more rounded look to it. I'm not sure why I think that though.

James, Isabella and Alicia
James, Isabella and Lorelei

Susannah is lovely

I was going to say Gabrielle but i guess the "r" rules it out?

or how about:

Celeste
Lillian
Rosalind or Rosamund
Vivienne

Thanks again everyone I definitely have name obsession fatigue. Your suggestions are definitely along my lines of thinking. I will post an update in mid January when she is with us and has been bestowed with her name!
