Hi, I'm due in 9 weeks & need some help with names for DD2! I love Erin but DH isn't keen, can anybody suggest anything? DD1 is Chloe. I'm not too bothered about popularity, as long as its not in the top 5...oh and we live in Scotland if that changes anything! Thanks =D

Niamh? Pretty and still a nice Celtic feel.

I think I'm not actually looking for an Irish/Scottish name iykwim...Altho I do like Niamh/Neve & Skye!

In that case, I think Sasha, Nina or Bella go well with Chloe

If my DS had been a girl I was going to name her Erin. I also liked Skye and Niamh. But I had a boy!

Anyway, I do have a DD and she is called Orla.

Freya has the same sort of feeling to it as Erin. It means woman or lady.
