We're really stuck on a girl's name

DD2 is due in Feb and we are really struggling to find a name we both love. DD1 is Rosanna, love this as it is unusual but easy to pronounce and we can also use Rosie as a nickname. I want to love DD2's name as much but so far nothing seems to be quite right.

So far the shortlist is:
Amelia
Bethany
Esther
Leah
Leila
Lydia
Sophie

Lots of lovely names including Phoebe, Eva, Grace and Zoe have been used by close family.

I would really appreciate comments and suggestions as I'm sure the right name is out there but we just haven't found it yet!

They are all really pretty names, I especially like Lydia and Esther.

DC2 was going to be Ailsa, if a girl. I still love the name.

Andrea, goes well with Rosanna.

We nearly named our DD Rosanna. Beautiful name! I low Lydia from your shortlist.

Ideas for DD2

Francesca
Beatrice
Miriam
Bethan
Orla
Daphne
Penelope
Jemima
Harriet

Juliet?
Marianna?
Annabel?

Thanks for your suggestions, I really liked Elizabeth but Dh not keen. Hadn't thought of Sylvie but really like how it sounds.

I like Lydia and prefer Bethan to Bethany. Rosanna is fab! How about:

Meredith
Tamsin
Helena
Louisa
Hester

Rosie and Molly

Lots of lovely suggestions, thank you very much.
Current thinking is Lydia (my favourite, Dh said it might grow on him) Esther (his favourite, I just wish it had a softer sounding nickname as well- Essie?) or Sophie (both like but is popular)

I also like Clara, Sylvie and Celeste and will suggest them tonight

Charlotte.

My DD 3 weeks old is Lydia, so obviously that's my favourite. I also really liked Hester with nickname Hetty. Maybe Esther could be Ettie?

VictorAndBarry Wed 09-Jan-13 19:39:57

Could you have Estee as a nickname?

I love Lydia, Juliet and Grace.
