Im really struggling to think of a name for dd2. I'd like something similar to dd1, Jennifer, which I liked because it was quite traditional, but not too common at the moment, and goes with Scottish surname.

Appreciate any ideas, as we can't think of any names and time is running out!

My first thought was Jennifer and Fiona. Gorgeous sibset.
How about Hazel, Patricia, Rosalind (Jenny and Lindy - so cute!), Heather, Zoe, Lisbeth, Jean/Joan/Jane, Rebecca, Helen, Marianne, Kate, Yvonne, Elise, Shirley grin , Maureen, Morag, Penelope, Ailsa, Gwen.

jinglesticks Fri 12-Oct-12 17:20:28

Some lovely suggestions.
I'm now trying to remember the whole line from the beautiful south song in case I eventually have 5 dds smile

I know a Jennifer whose sister is Lucy. I'm a Jennifer and my sister is Bridget.

Teddimac Fri 12-Oct-12 20:40:56

I'm a Jennifer - my sister is Gillian (so both have 'j' sound and three syllables). Our maiden name isn't Scottish but coincidentally we both ended up with very Scottish surnames on marriage, and I think names that end in an 'r' or 'n' run quite nicely into Mac.../Mc...

DebbieTitsMcGee Fri 12-Oct-12 20:49:31

Me & my sister are Jennifer and Alison! Other sister is Joanna.

Ohsiena Fri 12-Oct-12 22:05:07

I like:
Jennifer and Fiona
Jennifer and Caroline
Jennifer and Josephine

They all fit the traditional yet currently underused criteria.

I think Caroline is my favourite, I love this name.

Maybe not quite your criteria, but could I also suggest:
Jennifer and Claudia?

I just love Claudia.

Ohmydarlin Sat 13-Oct-12 08:24:35

Susannah has a similar feel to Jennifer - both classic but underused. Plus I love the nicknames Susie or Annie.

Jane

Jennyrosity Sat 13-Oct-12 23:00:24
