Hi I'm drawing a complete blank for girl's names, my eldest is Elizabeth which was a name DH and I both agreed on. My DH chose dd2's name although I preferred her now middle name, she is called Coral Nina.
We are expecting another girl in 9 weeks and I have no ideas yet, I don't like popular names but do want to use my mother's name as middle name (Susan) but might change the spelling. I also have a DS called Nathan.
Any ideas?

Suddenly I've decided I really like the name Clementine, it seems like a nice mid ground between Elizabeth and Coral.

or maybe that's still too popular.

What about Adeline?

Nina and Penelope are springing to mind

My first was Scarlett. It's a strong yet feminine name like Elizabeth, but yet. It's also a colour name like Coral

I really like the suggestion of Clementine from sugarplum, agree it ties Elizabeth and Coral together nicely. Also love Maude and Nancy as names, but they leave Coral out in the cold somewhat thematically speaking.

How are you changing the spelling of Susan?

Another vote for Clementine. Goes perfectly with Elizabeth and Coral! Clementine Susan sounds lovely.

Elizabeth, Coral, Nathan and Ruth.

Thanks for all the suggestions, will have to draw up a shortlist.
My DH tends to veto anything too unusual and had put Robyn on my list but he's decided he doesn't like it anymore, apparently all the women he's known with that name were horrible!
I am really fussy too and don't want to repeat letters so nothing that starts with a C, E or N which rules out a lot of names.

I am planning on using Suzanne, Susannah or something like that as a middle name, typically DH likes Susan as a name but I don't think I could use it as a first name.

Have a few names on the list now but nothing is really jumping out at me

Jessica
Scarlett
Lucy
Jasmine
Dawn
Rebecca
Heather
Aimee
Jemima
Maude

My sister had a girl last year and she is called Rosie (Rosanna) so that rules out names with Rose in it. I did really like Rosemary and Rosalie.
Also our surname begins with H so not sure about H names.

DH has suggested Magenta!

Is this a name? Not sure if it is a bit too weird for me but I suppose it goes with Coral.
Thanks for all the suggestions, have a huge list now!

I know a two years old Suzanna and she is adorable.
