Sister for Mollie

(34 Posts)

We're looking for a girls name. DD is Mollie (Please don't be mean about her name- I loves it and I'm a weepy pregnant lady) looking for something that goes with this.
I have no ideas! Did like Eliza but I don't like Liza as an abbreviation any suggestion most welcome.
Thanks!

What about Elsie - I love it, or Ivy.

I have always been in a minority of one when it comes to Sybil but I'm throwing it out there for you to consider. A Mollie and a Sybil sounds good to me.

Why would you shorten Eliza to Liza? IEliza wouldn't even be Ellie, just Eliza.

I know one Molly. She's thirty and I loved her name when I first heard it. Made me think of Ulysses.

To differentiate I'd choose a name without the y or ie ending.

Vera
Anna
Tegwen, Tiggy nn.
Faith
Tamsin
Nell
Nora
Bethan

I like Sybil too!

I agree that I would avoid other y or ie endings. I like Mollie and:

Hannah
Emma
Rosa/Rosanna
Edith
Flora
Clara
Annabel

Thank you! Some lovely suggestions to take back to DH. Not allowed a Nora unfortunately- Aunty Nora's deathbed request that no one was to be inflicted with her name!

I really like Molly but agree with pp I'd avoid other names ending with -y -ie -ey sounds

Edith
Rosalyn
Ruth
Alice
Kate
Cara
Eleanor

I'd also avoid Amelia to avoid the nn Millie!

Mollie and Zara
Mollie and Freya
Mollie and Anna
Mollie and Hannah

(I love the name Mollie!)

Not Dollie or Pollie or Mindy or Mandy

Esther, Rebecca, Grace, Paula, Joanna, Lucie, Daisy, Lily, Kathryn (shorten to Katie if preferred), Cassandra (Cassie), Evangelina (Evie), Amy

Thanks everyone!

Mollie is a gorgeous name and I agree that Annabel would compliment it nicely. Love Eliza too and don't think it would ever be shortened to Liza.

Bowlersarm Tue 24-Jun-14 21:55:58

Rtfairy - a number of Eliza's we know are shortened to 'Liza', sorry.

I have a Molly and an Evie.
Ella

Annabelle

Both my grannies were Molly. One Margaret; one Mary. Great name.

traditionally they would go with queens' names like Elizabeth; Jane; Anne; Victoria;

But you could take a Jane Austen approach and have Lydia; Francis; Georgina; Isobel; Emily; Lucy (Lucinda) for instance

NeverEndingLaundry Tue 24-Jun-14 22:13:43

Sorry, Frances for a girl, obvs

bouncingbelle Tue 24-Jun-14 22:29:29

My great aunt Mollie had sisters called Lilly, Maude, Sadie and Rose if that is of any use!!

NeverEndingLaundry Tue 24-Jun-14 22:56:18

bouncingbelle I love all those names

hefner Wed 25-Jun-14 13:43:04

Rosa
Tess
Isobel
Freya

I have a Molly too and I'd decided on Rosa for dc2 if it was a girl, but I'm having a boy and have no idea what to call him!

How about Alicia nickname Lissy I love that and sounds good with Mollie x
