DD is Penny Amelia, looking for a sibling name. DF hates all of them but it's tough. His suggestions are Luna, Autumn and Talia but I don't think they go with Penny at all. Anyway here goes;
Penny and Susie
Penny and Sadie
Penny and Rose
Penny and Paige
Penny and Amber
Penny and April
Penny and Hazel

Mn would be Eloise, Elodie, Olivia, Annabelle or April or Amber if not used.

Well if he hates them, then I think you need a new list.

If he liked them, id say Amber

He is a nightmare when it comes to baby names. He likes the 3 names he picked and that's It. He won't consider any other names at all. Won't even look. Won't try out my suggestions. And he doesn't understand when I say that his suggestions do not match our daughters name!!!!!!!!

Babel1111 Wed 26-Feb-14 07:57:24

Tell a lie; he says April and Hazel are 'alright' that's It.

ThatBloodyWoman Wed 26-Feb-14 07:57:41

I like Autumn......

ProfondoRosso Wed 26-Feb-14 07:59:50

I like Sadie best out of your list, and Autumn from his. smile

HyvaPaiva Wed 26-Feb-14 08:00:11

I like Sadie Olivia best from that list BUT I'm not your partner and if he hates them, you can't use them. I hope he starts working with you on this soon.

BulletForMySandwich Wed 26-Feb-14 08:05:29

I like luna best and don't see why it has to 'match' Penny at all?!

CalmTheFarm Wed 26-Feb-14 08:09:15

Autumn is lovely and I like Paige from your list.

Monkeyandanimal Wed 26-Feb-14 08:09:40

I like Susie. It goes well with penny, though tbh, i don't see why it needs to 'go' at all! Susie is really sweet.

Oh, I adore the name Penny! (I am not being helpful am I!).

Of your dh's names I like Luna. I also like Hazel.

Yes, Susie is very sweet, I agree

ThatBloodyWoman Wed 26-Feb-14 08:11:51

I like Susan with Susie as a nn.

ThatBloodyWoman Wed 26-Feb-14 08:12:33

Or Sarah with nn as Sadie.....

Pooka Wed 26-Feb-14 08:13:54

Or Susanna with nickname Susie.

I went to school with a penny who had a sister called Joanna.

You realise the "matching" thing is a completely arbitrary idea you have in your head? To me some of those names don't go at all, Paige for example seems to me a v serious name compared to Penny and Amber is just v different.

Not saying you should pay the slightest attention to how they sound to me btw, I'm just saying others won't think about that at all.

Fwiw, I like Penny and Susie best. And I think Susie Olivia is lovely. I also his Talia.

What's wrong with Penny and Talia? It is no worse/better really than Penny and Amber surely?

Sorry, I just don't really follow why you think your names "match"?

Looking at the list again I actually really like Hazel too. Hazel Eloise!

Babel1111 Wed 26-Feb-14 08:18:34

Oooh no I think sibsets have to match! Not like, Christian and Christina, or Jenny and Kenny, but match in style. I know a Richard and Zain sibset and It always baffles me. The names are so so different in style, It sits strange with me. Like I would have had Richard and Thomas, 2 strong old fashioned names, or Zain and Lex, 2 new trendy names, for example. That's why I'm not sure on a traditional sweet Penny and brand fire new Luna.

SheherazadeSchadenfreude Wed 26-Feb-14 08:22:36

Penny and Sadie or Susie. Susanna is nice if you wanted a "grown up" alternative for formal, and there's nothing wrong with Susan, either.

RiverTam Wed 26-Feb-14 08:26:14

'sibset'???

Rose
Luna

I don't get that a lot of the names on your list 'go' with Penny?

Babel1111 Wed 26-Feb-14 08:33:37

If the names on my list don't go with Penny, would you mind posting some suggestions. I understand that our perception of names is totally subjective, and how one person hears a name can be totally different to the next person, but posting on a forum asking the opinions of a diverse group of people will at least get me a general consensus of what people think about the names I like

Theonlyoneiknow Wed 26-Feb-14 08:36:13

What about Natalie nn Talia?

OneMoreThenNoMore Wed 26-Feb-14 08:39:30

I like Susie and Rose, but my favourite is Luna. I think it sounds really good with Penny. smile

Wineandchoccy Wed 26-Feb-14 08:49:07

I quite like Luna and I see it as quite a gentle name. I think the suggestions up thread of Matilda/Tilly and Josephine/Josie are great and really go with Penny. I think from your list Susie goes best.
