Hi ladies,

We've decided to go with Zoe for DD2's first name and our surname is also short - begins with G, think Hugh, Cary...

This means we can choose a no-holds-barred, dazzlingly beautiful middle name with hundreds of syllables if needed.

Give me the names you always ached to give your daughter but were worried would be too flowery.

Evangelina, Lillibetta, Queenie.

Zoe is lovely, OP. smile

How about:
Valentina
Esmeralda
Severine
Persephone
Cordelia
Danika
Elisabetta
Perdita
Vespertine

They're not 'flowery' but a nice contrast I think.

Vespertine is amazing. A similar vein to Berengaria, which I also love. What is this style called?!

Anjou Sat 29-Mar-14 11:50:27

Not sure what the style would be classed as. Lovely though isn't it? Vespers means evening (vespers are also evening prayers, I think. Bit archaic now). So if DD is born in the evening then it would be appropriate. It's also the name of a very good album by Bjork!

Veronica?
