So I'm pregnant with baby number 2. I don't know yet if I'm expecting a boy or a girl. I have a name selected for a boy, but nothing good for a girl!

Our first daughter is called Florence so it needs to sit well with that.

Our surname is Bullock - whatever we choose has to go with that too.

Any suggestions welcomed!

Call her Nancy. That's what I would call my dd if I had one. It's a lovely name. Feminine yet feisty.

I like Nancy!

I think an 'earthy' surname like Bullock needs something feminine yet snappy.

Edie. She could be Edith officially and that would go with the Victorian feel of Florence.

Lucy goes well with surname and DD1s name I think. Or Emily.

I know two sisters called Florence and Rose.

@StDogolphin change one letter of Henrietta Bullock and you have

Henry Ate A Bollock

Alice?

Emmeline is quite nice although reminds me of Ermintrude which with Florence is a bit Magic Roundabout.

The Henrietta thing made me laugh out loud grin. It was very clever.

Alice is a perfect name but I am very very biased. I don't think it goes with Florence though; Flora possibly.

Back to Emmeline though; how about Christabel who was one of her daughters? That does go with Florence I think - oops may be too many b sounds for Bullock. The other daughter was Sylvia? Not sure about that - but I think Susannah goes?

Ha! Yes! grin

Christabel is lovely, as is Susannah. i think your right to go for something with several syllables.

I rather like Elizabeth and haven't seen it used for years. Do you like Josephine?
