Oh I loved Jeanie and Connie but DH wasn't keen. Frances nice too. All your names are lovely! smile

Fifis25StottieCakes Thu 23-Jun-11 19:06:33

My Connies middle name is Jean but i wish sometimes i had of thought to use Jeanie as a 1st name. Its after her great Nan as she was the only one of my dd's she didnt meet

yellowflowers Thu 23-Jun-11 21:53:33

oooh good ideas. I like Jean too. sigh - I love talking baby names.

Fifis25StottieCakes Thu 23-Jun-11 21:56:07

I absolutely love Ethne but the kids dad hated it. I still havent met another one. I have a Romilly and have never met one in real life. If i had another one i think i would use Estelle for a girl and Jamieson for a boy.

zlaya Thu 23-Jun-11 23:20:04

I love it too, but it is not pronounced Ethne, but rather Etna(volcano in Italy)

Fifis25StottieCakes Thu 23-Jun-11 23:37:02

I would have used it in its English form Ethne which i think is Greek but there are many variations, Eithne pronounced En-yah in gaelic i think. I read up on it years ago but cant remember now.

Can't believe someone else has called their daughter Constance Jean Fifi! Thats my DD1s name too!

Fifis25StottieCakes Fri 24-Jun-11 08:56:31

Is it grin. Mines nearly 3. I havent used Constance though. She just has Connie on BC.

I love your names! Especially Annie and Frances. I like Clementine too, although personally thinks this works best as a middle name.

There is an 'n' sound in the middle all the names you've picked... I've noticed that people often pick names for their children which share similar sounds to their or their partners' names - or both.

Anyway... what about:

Gwendolyn nn Gwen
Joni

I love both of these!

Romilly is lovely

stleger Fri 24-Jun-11 12:08:25

Helena. Lillian.

Fifis25StottieCakes Fri 24-Jun-11 14:37:29

Ive got a Romilly as well. My eldest dd hates her name though so 2 out of 3's not bad

Fifis25StottieCakes Fri 24-Jun-11 14:38:22

Sorry that reads wrong Romilly is dd2, DD1 hates her name and prefers the other name i had picked.

Mytholmroyd Sat 25-Jun-11 16:46:43

Ah Fifi beat you to it - DD1 is 22. grin Everyone calls her Connie or Con though except on Sundays!

Fifis25StottieCakes Sat 25-Jun-11 16:57:25

Yes mine too, shes usually just gets Con grin
