So at 10 days old this is officially getting ridiculous and starting to become a stress rather than a pleasure. Can I have some help from you lovely lot? She is a sister for Jude (boy) so bear that in mind.

This is our final, final list:

Isadora Violet or Viola
Tess Aurelia
Tabitha Hero

Tabitha Hero.

(Although my favorite is Aurelia)

LondonBus Sun 16-Jun-13 18:46:09

Oh, and congratulations! smile

Coconutty Sun 16-Jun-13 18:50:36

Tabitha Hero


I second Tabitha Hero, then Tess Aurelia

Though I think Tabitha Violet goes well aswell.

Try not to stress, maybe try a name out a day? Is there not one that appeals more to you?

If not and they are all the same to you then pick one out of a hat. And if that one doesn't feel right then go through and pick again.

Tabitha Hero!

cookielove Sun 16-Jun-13 18:52:35

I know a Jude with a sister called Aurelie

I love Tess smile

Billysilly Sun 16-Jun-13 18:54:41

Tess - beautiful name.

lljkk Sun 16-Jun-13 18:58:18

They are all fine by me. Short straw method?

YoniMontana Sun 16-Jun-13 18:58:59

Tabitha Hero as well. Congratulations!

ZolaBuddleia Sun 16-Jun-13 19:00:24

I love Tess, Tabitha and Viola (you're pronouncing it VI-ola I'm guessing, not like the instrument). Not keen on Aurelia, Hero Isadora or Violet, so I'd go with Viola Tess Surname.

Sorry, I know that's not strictly what you asked. grin

ArabellaBeaumaris Sun 16-Jun-13 19:03:03

(although Tess & Jude gets a bit Hardy-ish I don't think it matters)

DramaAlpaca Sun 16-Jun-13 19:05:48

Tess goes beautifully with Jude as long as you don't mind that they are both characters in Thomas Hardy's novels. Tess Aurelia is lovely.

Isadora Violet is really pretty, and you have the option of either Izzy or Dora as nicknames.

Don't like Tabitha, sorry - probably because I used to have a cat called Tabitha grin

DramaAlpaca Sun 16-Jun-13 19:06:31

X-post with Arabella!

MortifiedAdams Sun 16-Jun-13 19:06:57

Tess Aurelia, or better still Aurelia Tess

fussychica Sun 16-Jun-13 19:18:54

All but Tabitha. Tess is my favourite.
Which goes best with your surname? That would be the decider for me.

FingersCrossedLegsNot Sun 16-Jun-13 19:23:19

Tessa Hero would be fantastic

Tickledyellow Sun 16-Jun-13 19:48:01

Jude and Tess would both be very Hardy names if you are a Hardy fan?! ;-)

StickPin Sun 16-Jun-13 19:49:18

All brilliant names!

Sunnysummer Sun 16-Jun-13 19:59:21

Love Tabitha and like Tess (and am very sympathetic - we took three weeks, and in the end were only able to fend off concerned relatives by warning them that if we had to make an immediate decision he would be named Sedwig)

Hoolit Sun 16-Jun-13 20:13:04

Tess although I do like them all. I think as you like them all let Jude pick smile

bassingtonffrench Sun 16-Jun-13 20:17:09


orangepudding Sun 16-Jun-13 20:19:02

Tabitha Violet or Violet Tabitha

Elquota Sun 16-Jun-13 20:30:02

Isadora Violet is beautiful.

Viola is nice too, but Isadora Viola doesn't quite go as well, because of the two "a" endings.

Tess and Aurelia are both lovely names, but personally I'd only use Tess as a nickname, not a full name, or perhaps go for Aurelia Tess.

Personally I don't like Tabitha or Hero.

KOTK Sun 16-Jun-13 20:35:41

Tabitha Hero without a doubt imo.

CarriMarie Sun 16-Jun-13 21:14:00

Another vote for Tabitha Hero or even Tabitha Violet.

Jojay Sun 16-Jun-13 21:16:52

Isadora Violet, without a doubt. Beautiful.

QOD Sun 16-Jun-13 21:35:19

Isadora or Tabitha/Tabby

MummyPig24 Sun 16-Jun-13 21:39:34

Ooh I love Tess Aurelia! But then I also love Hero.

bugsybill Sun 16-Jun-13 22:44:41

They are all lovely!

Maybe let your son choose one?

Maybe try each one for a day (or a few hours) and see if one sticks or stand out?

Maybe ask your family to vote? (be strict in the instructions that they are the only choices and you are not open to other suggestions)

Tincletoes Sun 16-Jun-13 22:49:37

Isadora Violet (although they are all lovely)

Tabitha Hero.

MustafaCake Sun 16-Jun-13 22:55:32


Tabitha is a cat.

ProphetOfDoom Sun 16-Jun-13 23:03:53

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

Anjou Mon 17-Jun-13 06:59:46

Tabitha Hero or Tabitha Violet, definitely. Good luck!

Theas18 Mon 17-Jun-13 07:20:26

Tess and Jude is a lovely Thomas Hardy combo!

Please not Isadora. Lovely though it is there will be a bazillion Issy 's going through life with her due to the popularity of Isabel ( and it's spelling variants) there are also Doras about ( dora the explorer has a lot to answer for!)

Tabitha Hero then Tess. Agree with poster who said there's going to be millions of Isy's!

3rdnparty Mon 17-Jun-13 08:24:53

from your list think Tess goes best with Jude, though really like Violet as well...I liked Tabitha but to many -dh Included its a cat/witch name...smile isadora whilst lovely will probably get lost in the izzy mix don't like Auralie as much ....love Thea (biased as have a Theo)...

PestoSwimissimos Mon 17-Jun-13 08:45:14

I like Isadora Violet

so pretty smile

cookielove Thu 20-Jun-13 18:50:19

bestybo did you choose a name?

rockybalboa Thu 20-Jun-13 19:01:09

Love Tabitha but not so keen on Hero. Also love Violet and Viola as first names. Tess seems like its a nn for something longer. This isn't helping is it?!? Congrats though! smile

Turniptwirl Thu 20-Jun-13 20:50:45


Turniptwirl Thu 20-Jun-13 20:51:14

I'm gonna mix it up and go for tabitha violet

nectarini1983 Thu 20-Jun-13 21:18:39

Aurelia Violet

experimental Thu 20-Jun-13 21:21:13

Tess Isadora OR Tess Violet both work well imo and go nicely with Jude.

Aurelia Violetgrin

Tess Aurelia.

Tess works best with Jude, both are cool,hip, yet classic.
