Hi. I'm looking for an unusual, but pretty girls name. Not too outrageous and something that would work well with the middle name 'Rose' or 'Leigh' as these are family names that I would like to tie into the name. Any ideas are welcomed... Thank you!!

Carissima

Lorelei (maybe not with Leigh!)

Aurelia

Vivienne

Annaliese

Would you consider Eulalia /Eulalie Rose? I believe Eulalia is a very old name. I personally think it is a very pretty name and combines beautifully with Rose.

It is pronounced yoo-LAY-lee-a and it means "well spoken"

I hope you like.

khadra2001 Tue 27-May-14 16:15:10

BookieTubules Tue 27-May-14 16:19:24

Jessamine (yes, I am reading Milly-Molly-Mandy to DD at the moment!) goes well with Rose.

I'm pretty sure Eithne should be pronounced Enya, not Eth na.

Ophelia can give rise to rude jokes, as well as being a very unhappy fictional character.

Evie
Freya
Willow
Jessica
Elin
Eleri

I too am looking for a pretty girl's name that's not been over-used. My DD is Evie Rose, but it was the only one I really loved so I'm stuck for DD2!

Eithne is not == Enya as per a PP

It is an Irish name (fairly standard, not unusual there tho' not currently on trend).

Pronounced Etna or Ethna

Elianna Rose
Etta Leigh

The above names are ones I think sound nice with your choices & some names suit both names mentioned IMHO. Best of luck OP.
