We struggled with girls' names 1st time round and now I'm having an additional problem: I'm not sure about names that also either end with an 'E' sound or have a common nickname that ends with the same sound as Freddie. Do they sound too cutesy/matchy together? I'm worried they do, but it would rule out so many names, including my favourites.
.
How do these names sound with Freddie (He is a Frederick but always known as Freddie)? Any other suggestions?

Vivienne (My favourite but Vivi rhymes)
Poppy
Elizabeth (more likely to be a middle name)
Alice
Madeleine
Juliet
Evelyn
Miranda
Cecilia (I prefer Cecily but it sounds stupid with our surname)
Clara
Camilla (but the P-B puts me off)
Rose (Really like but am quite put off by a cow I knew with this name!)
Emmeline
Matilda

Thank you!

What about Verity or Romily?

I'd avoid Fred and Rose. But I guess if that pair of names seems ok to you, it will be meaningless to your children's peers.

Fred and Rose West

Most of the names on your list are lovely & go well with Freddie.

I'd avoid Poppy if you don't want cutesy, and Madeleine would probably get shortened to Maddie, which is a bit matchy with Freddie.

Vivienne nn Vivi would be perfect with Freddie.

Quite like Hero too.

I love Cecilia.

Vivienne - really like it. And it doesn't rhyme with Freddie at all?!
Poppy - it's ok. Not a huge fan
Elizabeth - not keen but do like it as a middle name
Alice - quite like it
Madeleine - really like it
Juliet - love it
Evelyn - quite like it but not so keen on Evie
Miranda - love it
Cecilia - like it
Clara - quite like it
Camilla - really like it
Rose - quite like it
Emmeline - it's ok.
Matilda - love it

Juliet would probably be my choice from your list, closely followed by Miranda.

I know Freddies with sisters called:
Georgia
Jemima
Lottie
Isabella
Grace

Thank you! There are some lovely suggestions here which have been added to the list. It's good that the general consensus is not to worry too much about two 'E' sounds so we won't rule out any names on that basis.

The problem now, is the list is getting longer, not shorter grin

My favourite is Madeleine and it goes really well with Frederick! Freddie and Maddie, such a nice set smile do it! wink

My first thought was "Freddie and Josie" (Josephine if you prefer to use the longer name). Not too matchy I don't think.

Tbh I think people overthink the 'matching siblings' thing a bit. Apart from really odd/surprising combinations (Kylie and Persephone?), I don't think it's an issue for very long. Once kids are at school I don't think people really think of them in siblings groups so much, it's only when they are toddlers and you are shouting their names together at the playground that you think of it as an issue.

I think it's fine to have two 'E' endings, although I would prob avoid two 'DEE' endings e.g. Freddie and Mandy.

I love Miranda and really like Vivienne, Madeleine and Juliet too.

Prefer Rosanna or Rosa instead of Rose.

How about Miriam, Catherine or Tabitha?
