Sister for Grace and Rupert

Hello

Have name changed for this.

My and DH can't think of a girls name we like, it feels impossible. The closest we have got is Phoebe but we aren't sure it's the one and DH hates the character in Friends which isn't helping.

We were absolutely certain on a Grace and no other name was discussed.

Boys names we liked were Oliver and Finn but we went with Rupert.

We prefer short names and like quite classical names. Our surname is one syllable and starts with the letter T.

I'm not keen on Olivia, Sophia, Emily, Daisy, Isla which have all been suggested (nothing wrong with them, just not for me). We just can't think of any name we like. I don't dislike Skye but DH says too hippy. He likes Holly but I'm really not keen, too seasonal and a friends DD is called Holly.

Please help!

Like Rose but it's a friends daughters name. Maybe need to cut contact, she isn't a good friend!

None of the others are grabbing us. DH keeps going "uuuuhm not sure".

None of them are names we dislike, just a bit indifferent to them all.

Eleanor? I think it goes really well with siblings names. Also some nice nickname options if you wanted them.

It's fine to choose Rose if it's a friend who isn't super close!

Aldwick Thu 28-Nov-13 21:28:41

I think Alice is perfect but what about Anna, Lara, Florence, Sophia, Catherine, Harriet (Hattie) Claudia?

First one I thought of on sight of thread title was Tilly (Matilda).

Millie
Penny - Penelope
Honor

Felicity was a girl who was a horrible bully to me!

I like Polly, DH says parrot.

Dora sounds like Dora the explorer.

I like Eve, DH doesn't.
Like Lara but too close to Laura
Erin is DD's best friend!

Still nothing grabbing us as the name.

I think it might be Baby Girl at this rate!

Hebe (love this one)

Thea (another of my favourites)

Lots of suggestions, I'm cross posting all the time!

I love Fleur and said to DH "we've found one" but he just went hmmm to it. He says it is like Bleur (noise you make when you don't like something). He has spoilt it for me now.

He also vetoed Hattie which I quite liked although wasn't in love with.

I love Tilly but our cat is Matilda. Stupid cat. <gives poor cat evil glare>

Both like Chloe!

It's on the short list! A very short list with just that on it at present.

TheDoctrineOfWho Thu 28-Nov-13 21:36:45

Ooh, can we find something else Tilly might be short for?

You like Ellie, Polly and Tilly so that's a bit of a theme.
