Hope you wise women can help me!

I'm so stuck looking for a girls name. Surname will be Hwong so I don't really want a one syllable first name.

Also avoiding names ending in a T sound as the it sounds like surname is Twong which is er.. wrong.

I love Matilda and Imogen but worry that they are too common.

Not so keen on flowery girlie names (Emily, Ophelia etc)

If it helps you picture things then we are a mixed race, London, fairly creative couple. Ideally looking for an English first name.

Any suggestions?

Beatrice? Katherine? Isabelle? Abigail?

(I think Imogen is nice though)

I think Beatrix is a good classic name for a fairly creative couple!

Ooo I like Beatrice.

Katherine is also a runner as its the name of my MIL and also grannie. But I worry its a bit boring and also I'm not keen on Cathy, Katie etc

Not so keen on Abigail it Isobel/Isabelle as so common

I am reading a book at the moment which has a character called Cecily which I thought was gorgeous and a bit more unusual?

Jennifer, Juliet, Eloise, Amanda?

Francesca - not an English name but is similar to Matilda and Imogen which are also beautiful but non flowery names.

Have you found nameberry.com yet? You can search for names with a specific number of syllables and start and end letters or sounds. Great site.

Beatrix is nice. Then you can go wild on all the great Beatrix Potter stories and characters eg. to design a nursery or just a cute Peter Rabbit babygro like my dd had smile

She also bought a lot of land in the beautiful Lake District and gave it to the National Trust for future generations to enjoy!

I was going to say Francesca, but then I thought about the fact it is not English! Would work well with Hwong in my opinion.

I like Beatrix too. Might start a Beatrix thread...
