Hello mums, hit me up with ideas for girls names please! I'm struggling to think of names I like that go with our surname (Shaw).

Discounted so far, even though I like them as first names are:

Isabella (would be shortened to Izzy, and Izzy Shaw sounds like a question!)
Ella (don't know why but makes me think of an American saying 'hella sure')
Orla (too many 'or' sounds)
Charlotte (a mouthful)

Thanks in advance

I think names ending in consonants are your friends:

Alison
Meredith
Rhiannon
Tamsin
Judith
Rosanne

Nothing beginning with C.

Nothing beginning with C.

That was my first thought!

Thanks BlueChampagne, I was thinking three-syllable names sound better with Shaw. Love Meredith!

I second Meredith but I'm biased - our Meredith is seven weeks old wink we call her Edie which I also think works with your surname

Lol FleeBee, Sandie Shaw it is!

First thing I thought when I saw your thread title was Elodie.

Congrats by the way!

247otter Wed 06-Jul-16 21:31:37

Yes Snoopysimaginaryfriend ! I also LOVE Edie - not as popular as Evie but still really lovely

Isabel was the first thing that sprang to my mind but I see you've discounted Isabella. You could go with Bella or Ella as a NN to avoid 'Izzy Shaw'....

I had Eleanor in my head before I even clicked your thread - congratulations!
