A natural name

So we already have a flower and a gemstone (eg Lily and Ruby). Looking for DD3 name that continues the natural theme. Don't mind another flower but feel we may come across as hoping more for a floristry than a baby. Would like it to be a 'thing' as house is becoming festooned with lillies and rubies as friends can't resist - so don't want DD3 to feel left out in future. Would value your thoughts please?

I'd go for Twiggy just to be different

Ooh some lovely ideas there, thank you.

See I love Rose but this is where the florist comment comes from - dh thinks it's too obviously a flower when put alongside the other. Willow I love but think it's a bit sad sounding. I also love Wren but was laughed out of the room when I proposed it (so you can assume dh is also fairly conservative in his choices!)

Do you think Summer has to be a summer baby? (She won't be). Can Robin be a girl or should it be Robyn (and is that so obviously bird like?)

And any more thoughts v welcome... Thank you smile

DD is Robin. Loads of lovely things with Robins on especially at this time of year. Raven also a nice name... Linnet? Go for a bird!

DancingRoundTheKitchen Thu 17-Jan-13 21:16:05

Iris is lovely as is robin.
I think albertine is a beautiful name for a girl (it's a sort of rose) but can see it wouldn't be to everyone's tastes!

I know a Fawn and a Rain. Asa, Secoya, Bay are all lovely (and DP vetoed everyone, boring old fart)

MoelFammau Thu 17-Jan-13 22:54:30

I love Gail. She'd be DD2 if I ever... nope, not doing the birth thing ever again!

Love Coral or Amber as they are different categories to other dd's.

Other ideas:
Laurel, olive, cherry, Leigh, angel, clover, saffron, clementine, ebony, aurora

Faye (fairy), seren (star), Selena (moon), leonie (lioness)

MadBusLady Fri 18-Jan-13 19:02:51

Plum
Apple. Or has that been Paltrowed?

kissitbetter Fri 18-Jan-13 21:06:10

Thank you again, testing some of these out on dh right now... Clover is getting a look in, and I love clementine but while it apparently comes from clemency, dh is concerned about the small orange association (albeit it fits the brief!)

cosykins Fri 18-Jan-13 21:24:56

I don't think a Summer has to be born in Summer. I love the name - so happy, upbeat and unpretentious. Lots of lovely name ideas though. Olive is sweet.

Fifi2406 Fri 18-Jan-13 23:27:13

Binarysolo.....my baby bump was called moon unit! Makes me chuckle every time!
I vote Forrest, Ivy & Briar

Ebony

If friends are festooning your house with lillies and rubies, I'd go for Diamond.

noble grin

Those aren't their actual names but the general stylee - in fact several people have suggested their names here!

And (you may detect I am getting a bit anxious now as the big day approaches) I also tried a name generator today - v spookily the first name it came up with was Summer, which I have been pondering, and the second was a double barrelled combo of the two DDs' real names...

Celeste, Lestie for nn

twinklestar2 Sun 20-Jan-13 10:28:08
