Sister for Grace and Rupert

(171 Posts)
NameMyGirl Thu 28-Nov-13 20:55:21

Hello

Have name changed for this.

My and DH can't think of a girls name we like, it feels impossible. The closest we have got is Phoebe but we aren't sure it's the one and DH hates the character in Friends which isn't helping.

We were absolutely certain on a Grace and no other name was discussed.

Boys names we liked were Oliver and Finn but we went with Rupert.

We prefer short names and like quite classical names. Our surname is one syllable and starts with the letter T.

I'm not keen on Olivia, Sophia, Emily, Daisy, Isla which have all been suggested (nothing wrong with them, just not for me). We just can't think of any name we like. I don't dislike Skye but DH says too hippy. He likes Holly but I'm really not keen, too seasonal and a friends DD is called Holly.

Please help!

Alice

NameMyGirl Thu 28-Nov-13 21:07:29

My name is Megan (this is why I had to name change, I'm so outed).

My sister is Lucy and I have a niece called Laura.

Of the others:
Eloise - too many syllables but I do like Ellie
Adeline - is this Add-eh-lean? It's a bit unusual for me
Iona - not keen (too many syllables again)
Briony - not keen
Elizabeth - too long
Shona - not keen
Tara - name of close friend

TheDoctrineOfWho Thu 28-Nov-13 21:10:00

Eloise can be pronounced Ell-wahs. Which is two syllables.

How about Ellen, if you like Ellie?

Elodie popped straight into my head.

Mary - MIL name!
Ruth / Imogen not keen
Cate / Kate - SIL name!
Isabelle - like but don't like Bella, too long really
Catherine - SIL actual name (plus too long)
Molly - DH says not too bad. Reminds me if a horse I used to ride
Matilda - love ... It's the cats name though!
Alice - it's okay but not in love with it. Along the right lines!

Not crazy on Ellen, always sounds like somebody has dropped the H off Helen. Not heard Eloise pronounced like that, I think she would be forever correcting people.

Elodie we both like a lot. It has "die" in it though even though it's not pronounced like that. Puts me off.

Adele, Beth, Anya we don't like.

Ceyln I have problems pronouncing. Celine? Not being able to pronounce it puts me off.

We'll never find a name. We're too fussy. sad

TheDoctrineOfWho Thu 28-Nov-13 21:19:09

Following the Friends reference - Baby Girl?

Like Rose but it's a friends daughters name. Maybe need to cut contact, she isn't a good friend!

None of the others are grabbing us. DH keeps going "uuuuhm not sure".

None of them are names we dislike, just a bit indifferent to them all.

Eleanor? I think it goes really well with siblings names. Also some nice nickname options if you wanted them.

busylizzie76 Thu 28-Nov-13 21:27:39

I work at a girls school - here are some names I like:

- Kate
- Sienna
- Emilia
- Ava
- Nicole
- Iona
- Kitty
- Annabelle
- Harriet
- Isla
- Alice
- Emma
- Fleur
- Hattie
- Josephine

Loads more but my brain has shut down. confused

TheDoctrineOfWho Thu 28-Nov-13 21:28:26

It's fine to choose Rose if it's a friend who isn't super close!

Aldwick Thu 28-Nov-13 21:28:41

I think Alice is perfect but what about Anna, Lara, Florence, Sophia, Catherine, Harriet (Hattie) Claudia?

LongTailedTit Thu 28-Nov-13 21:28:48

First one I thought of on sight of thread title was Tilly (Matilda).

Millie
Penny - Penelope
Honor

NameMyGirl Thu 28-Nov-13 21:29:08

Felicity was a girl who was a horrible bully to me!

I like Polly, DH says parrot.

Dora sounds like Dora the explorer.

I like Eve, DH doesn't.
Like Lara but too close to Laura
Erin is DD's best friend!

Still nothing grabbing us as the name.

I think it might be Baby Girl at this rate!

Thea (another of my favourites)

NameMyGirl Thu 28-Nov-13 21:34:07

Lots of suggestions, I'm cross posting all the time!

I love Fleur and said to DH "we've found one" but he just went hmmm to it. He says it is like Bleur (noise you make when you don't like something). He has spoilt it for me now.

He also vetoed Hattie which I quite liked although wasn't in love with.

I love Tilly but our cat is Matilda. Stupid cat. <gives poor cat evil glare>

my dd's Ellie so might be biased when I say I love the name smile
she was almost Eva, Ava, Elise or Evie...

It's on the short list! A very short list with just that on it at present.

Ooh, can we find something else Tilly might be short for?

You like Ellie, Polly and Tilly so that's a bit of a theme.

Can we have Tilly as a name in its own right?

Although not sure it goes with our surname. Really do like it though.

Short list is Chloe and Tilly
Then Phoebe, Rose and Ellie also under consideration (but not front runners)

I think would be lovely with Grace and Rupert.

A good friend is Emma.

Still Chloe or Tilly ... But veering towards Chloe as goes better with our surname.

DH still likes Chloe best out of all the suggestions.

Sienna we both like a lot too! Another for the short list!

OddFrog Thu 28-Nov-13 21:50:55

Jenny. Sort for Jennifer, Janet, or on its own.
I liked Tilly, too.

Chloe is very safe and I really dislike Tilly.

Chloe is an 80's/90's name. Dated.

I would put a classic name with the ones you have.

Florence was the 1st name that sprung to mind.

Agree with Everlong about Chloe.

Grace and Rupert are lovely. You can do better for their sibling OP!

Clargo55 Thu 28-Nov-13 22:02:01

I agree with Everlong in regards to Chloe. A really 90's name to me.

evilgiraffe Thu 28-Nov-13 22:06:57

Your surname is one syllable beginning with T? If it's Tam, you have to call her River grin

I like Chloe!

Whoops missed that.

I agree with Everlong, Chloe with Rupert just doesn't work IMHO.

Struggling with a suggestion for you. Something only the lines of a Emma, Alexandra or Lucy would be a better fit.

Yes Rupert is called Ru a lot of the time!

Surname isn't Tam smile I'd be so tempted to go with River then! Surname rhymes with mate. Don't type it though, I don't want Google to throw up this thread as it has my name, DD and DS's names!

You can see why I don't think Tilly goes!

I'm a bit off Chloe now, I would like a classical name and now you've got it in my head that Chloe is dated. I'm easily swayed.

Going to bed for now. Will mull over things in the morning. Thought we had found it with Chloe but not sure now.

Alice keeps coming up and is lovely but we have a few friends with that name and it would be weird to call our child that (DH's boss is an Alice too).

either Sah-ra or Sair-a pronunciations would work amazingly with Rupert and Grace.
