Hi All, I've got about 10 weeks to go and although we have had a favourite girls name for a few weeks now (Rose) I would like to have a few more contenders to make a list. We both really like short names and wondered if anyone had any suggestions for 1 syllable or 2 syllable (but still short) names. We're fairly traditional in our tastes and due to me having a long name that no one can spell I'm keen on choosing a girls name that doesn't need spelling out to everyone!! Thanks!
Thanks for all the suggestions... We both like Eve but too many V's in our surname for that one to work. I like Kate but think there will be a few of those this year! I like Grace too...but still prefer Rose. I'm a big fan of Martha but DH hates it. This is too hard!
Any more 2 syllable suggestions (traditional and no ambiguous spellings?)
annie, for ages I agonised over a long name for Tess, as am not wild about Tessa or Theresa/Teresa or Contessa . Esther has been suggested which I like but think is a bit tenuous to link to Tess. And upto now have been firmly in the "you need a long name for BC and future options" camp. But I love Tess so much that I think I would just go Tess. Simple, classic and suits all ages IMO (which is often my issshooo with needing a longer name as often the diminutives can be quite young).
Shame about DH and Roseanne, as Rosanna is one of my faves, as so many NN choices.
