Tefia, nancy, vaneese , elsie, or you could your two favorites together ?

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Tue 23-Jul-13 15:14:17

Brontë or is that too rare?

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Tue 23-Jul-13 15:15:28

Coraline
Hermione
Xanthe

I like coraline and Hermione is lovely but too closely associated with HP now.

I think a longer 3-4 syllable name will work better...something...unexpected....or with a particularly nice meaning/association.

Christabel
Cassandra
Ariadne
Yolande
Vivienne
Georgiana

I'd try and mix two of the names you love if possible. I did for DD but didn't for DS and now wonder why I had a separate mn list for him instead of using 2 of our top 10.

Merryn Ida
Delphi Etta
Flora Merryn

Mable (spelt like this) was my Nan's middle name and you've listed her first as a middle grin

These are lovely pairings Sleeping I suppose I didn't want to use two from the list because none are grabbing me and I thought a spunky MN might sway me to one of them...but perhaps you're right....

Maribel,Bonnie and hebe are also lovely,not sure which 1st name they go best with though,I'm having real trouble pairing up names ATM.

I also adore the name Myrtle, but was told in no uncertain terms I couldn't lumber a child with it as a 1st name....perhaps okay as a MN though?

Flora Mabel
Flora Myrtle

Mabel Clementine

Dulcie Mabel
Dulcie Merryn

Hmm...I think I may have narrowed it down to 3 first name favourites!

Flora
Mabel
Dulcie

Still not 100% on the MN's for them but pretty sure these are my final 3!!

iwouldgoouttonight Tue 23-Jul-13 19:38:17

I love all the names you've chosen, and those of your DCs. My DD has a friend called Dulcibella, who gets called Dulcie for short. It means sweet beautiful I think. How about that for a middle nname?

Mabel Dulcibella
Flora Dulcibella

That's beautiful,but somehow....feels too Italian for us...like Giacomo,which I love,but feel I couldn't use sad

(Thankyou by the way blush it's nice when you find others with the same name tastes!)

niffernaffer Tue 23-Jul-13 19:53:40

Loveday
Caliope?

DP loves Dulciebella as a first name.
He likes Dulciebella Flora....I think it's too much with our surname...

Flora Dulciebella
Dulcie flora
Mabel Dulciebella

Dulcie Flora Bella???
Dulcie Bella Flora???

<clutches at straws>

Maybelle Flora?
Maybelle Dulcie

Dulcie Maybelle

Flora Maybelle

No,I don't like maybelle...
