We're trying to decide on a girl's name but really having trouble. The names listed above are some that we have both agreed we like in the past. Unfortunately, Jessica and Alice have been 'taken' by close family. Dh went to school with a Bryony who wasn't very nice so, although he won't rule it out, I think it isn't the one.

And Tamsin... I know this sounds crazy but dh's family is partly Cornish. If we choose a Cornish name, I just know that they the irritating fuckers will crow about it forever, and I just can't take the thought of that in my current hormonal state.

So, can anyone suggest similar names? Please?

Saskia or Heidi?

Tamar might also get you trouble! How about:

Samara
Laura
Corinna
Francesca
Louisa
Meredith
Rhiannon
Meryl

Some lovely suggestions, thank you. I like Tabitha, Corinna and Meredith in particular.

Dh has just thrown Leonie into the ring, which I think I really like, too. Would it normally be pronounced Lee-OH-nee? He says he also likes Sylvie. (This is an unprecedented level of interest in the topic from dh, so I'm keen to encourage him grin )

And yes, Tamar, whilst lovely, strays a little close to the Cornish connection!

I work with a Leonie - pronounced Lee-OH-nee. However I went to school with another Leonie - pronounced LEY-oh-nee. I think the former would be the usual way of pronouncing it.
