Our daughter is one week old. Please help us chose from this shortlist. Other suggestions welcome too..

Ida
Matilda
Phoebe
Claudia

We have probably already crossed off Vivienne and Florence from the shortlist.

Middle name we like is Rose. Again, other middle name suggestions welcome.

Ida is lovely, both classic but unusual.

Or Leila or olive??

Thank you guineapig1. That has been my front runner from the start.

Ida Rose is lovely

Phoebe is gorgeous, it's the type of name that goes with surnames easily too.

p.s. congratulations on your LO smile enjoy all those special newborn moments.

Congratulations! Phoebe Rose would be my favourite.

Matilda Rose

I like Ida but not sure about it with Rose. It might just be my accent but it sounds a bit like "I'd a rose.....on valentine's day"??

Phoebe's my favourite, Leila is lovely too. I'd say those two and Matilda are the most popular at the moment, if that sort of thing factors in at all? Have you tried calling her each name for a while and seeing if it fits?

Ida is lovely, as is Matilda which was my favourite, but I couldn't get DH on board sad

April Rose?

CSIJanner Sat 19-Apr-14 07:31:09

I already know of three Matilda Rose's. it's a very pretty name and popular. I would go for Claudia Rose but then I haven't heard of any Claudius in recent years and tend to go for the less popular names.

Congratualtions to you all grin

YoureAllABunchOfBastards Sat 19-Apr-14 07:33:13

Ooh, April!

Claudia Rose is lovely.

deemented Sat 19-Apr-14 07:46:24

I quite like Claudia from your list.

What about Verity?

MrsBungle Sat 19-Apr-14 07:47:36

Ida from your list. I love April.

TheKnightsThatSayNee Sat 19-Apr-14 07:51:15

They are all lovely names.
Rose is such a popular middle name (mainly because it's lovely) how about Ida Mai or Ida grace. Lana is nice and along the same lines as Leila.

notadoctor Sat 19-Apr-14 07:52:16

What a pretty list! I like all your names but I love Ida Rose.

I'm not sure suggestions are going to make your life easier but how about Ivy, Constance/ Connie or Iris?

Congratulations on your new baby!

Tangoandcreditcards Sat 19-Apr-14 07:54:52

What about Imelda - a bit like Ida and Matilda combined.

It's a bit old fashioned, but I know 3 baby Matildas (if that bothers you). I do like Ida, but depends on surname (because of the I'd a... Thing).

Tangoandcreditcards Sat 19-Apr-14 07:55:19

Oh, and congratulations!

purpleminion Sat 19-Apr-14 08:00:05

How about Avril? I considered it for dd but she wasn't born til start of May.

Congratulations.

WhoKnowsWhereTheChocolateGoes Sat 19-Apr-14 08:09:47

Claudia would be my favourite from that list, Ida least favourite - it sounds hard and old ladyish.

Somanyillustrations Sat 19-Apr-14 08:12:36

Clara Rose. DS would have been Clara if he's been a girl.

Congratulations Matilda here xx
