Martha

Or Frances after Francis of Assissi, because Noah and Eden both provided refuges for animals.

Hannah, Ruth, Sarah, Esther, Rachel, Faith, Hope, (discounted Grace due to popularity), Naomi, Eve,

My first thought was Ruth.
Anna and Phoebe also fit the criteria, I think smile

I think Grace would go nicely but might be too popular? Faith?

My DD is Lois.

It's a biblical name, though not many people know that!

Thank you all for these replies.. Afew were on my possibles list (lois, naomi) ... I'm in UK so lots of old names are very popular at the mo (martha, esther, florence, faith, grace)
My favourite name i had on my list is Isla Mabel
I think Noah, Eden, and Isla flows nicely.
What do u think?? Anymore suggestions would be appreciated x x

Is Isla not really popular or is it just because I'm in Scotland?

Other than that, yes it flows well but isn't biblical as far as I know so it has a different root to your other children's names but that wouldn't bother me.

I actually really like Mabel as a first name too.

Other suggestions:

Ariel
Julia
Tamar
Zoe

or, more in tune with Isla:
Ailsa
Iona
Lorna

I'm not bothered about religious really.. It just happened that my kids names both had biblical roots but just want a nice name..i havnt come across ne islas at the groups clubs i take my kids to and i'm a childminder and havnt come across it.. Didnt realise it was popular :-( mabel is my nanas name and shes 95.. This will b her 18th g-g-c

jazzyjenbo Wed 18-Dec-13 23:08:49

I like Iona ;-) added to list!

Isla is lovely. Matches other dc perfectly.

Other suggestions.

Ivy
Imogen
Aria
Skye
Mila
Eva
Violet
Lila

Don't worry, it may not be popular where you are, Isla is a Scottish name so is bound to be more popular here. You get all sorts of regional quirks. for example in the very small primary (200 pupils) my children went to, there were 2 Pipers which I would say is a pretty unusual name.

There are also loads of Keirs in their High school (800 pupil) which again is a fairly unusual - My eldest has 4 in his year alone!

Still like Mabel tho smile

Can I ask what your chosen name for a boy is?
