All girls names we like seem to be ruled out by having already been used in our gigantic family. Our other DD is Alice.

I like Orla as I'm Irish but living in the UK.
My DH likes Miranda best.
Lucy is our compromise name.

What do you think? Running out of time...

Miranda then Lucy

Orla as a middle name

I like Orla as a name best but actually think Lucy goes best with Alice.

How about Lucy Orla Miranda???!

Lucy and Alice go well together.

Miranda is beautiful.
Lucy is pretty.

Orla.

Lucy.

Miranda. Love it!

Miranda and Lucy are both lovely names. I don't like Orla particularly, if you want an Irish name there are much prettier ones like, say, Saoirse.

I like Orla best but agree that Lucy goes better with Alice. How about Lucy Orla?

I like all of your names. I think Lucy sounds best.

I like Lucy best.

Orla.

Orla. Lucy is a bit dull. Miranda is just too frilly!

Saminthemiddle Tue 29-Oct-13 16:05:08

Orla

Saminthemiddle Tue 29-Oct-13 16:05:50

Orla, then Lucy, I think Miranda will date.

FixItUpChappie Tue 29-Oct-13 16:28:46

I've always been very fond of the name Miranda. Orla would be my second choice.

Orla lovely. Ditto Miranda. Lucy is a bit dullsville.

squoosh Tue 29-Oct-13 17:09:47

Lucy - very pretty
Orla - a bit boring
Miranda - don't like this at all

LynetteScavo Tue 29-Oct-13 17:12:30

I would go for Miranda.

A friend of mine has a DD called Orla...I always kick myself I didn't think of it first.

Lucy....a bit too close to loo seat for me.

Orla, it is beautiful.

Miranda reminds me too much of the gormless sitcom character.

swoopyswoop Wed 30-Oct-13 07:21:34

All lovely! Not helpful... Maybe just narrow it down to two (Orla and Miranda?) and see what she looks like?

Those two names have quite different feels imo you may feel one suits her much better than the other. Then the other could be a middle name?

Orla Miranda is beautiful smile
