We're really struggling to name DD3. She's 15 days old today and still has no name as nothing really fits the bill. Sisters' names are Leah and Orla. Any suggestions?

I'm called Kate, friends have an Ava, Brooke was my dog, I like iris and Isis, but DH doesn't, Ivy was ex h's grandmother. It's so hard :/

Aria was on the list. It's getting quite popular though, isn't it? I like quite different names. Hebe is on the list, but I worry about it being shortened to 'heebs'.

Friends have an Annie and one of Leah's best friends is Anna! This is why I'm having so many problems!

Not much help but my dds friend is called Zoe
They call her Zo, Zog, anything they like because you can't shorten it. Not always a brilliant idea ime.

I was going to name my ds hazel if he was a girl. I wanted an unusual name so went through the national statistics for baby names, there were 6 hazels born in Scotland in 2012.
