Myrtle the turtle.

Old wizened lady with a blue perm.

Myrtle is the street I spent my teenage years growing up on. Its not a pretty name and it was a butt ugly street. Plus there is the moaning myrtle link.

Juniper - Jasmine?

Hmmmm. None of them grabbing me.

Maybe Sorrel?

Oh this is hard.

Hazel?

I like Laurel tabulahrasa.

allhailtheaubergine Wed 13-Jul-11 16:22:50

Tabulahrasa as a middle name?

tabulahrasa Wed 13-Jul-11 16:24:37

ooh yes, all babies should have tabulahrasa as a middle name grin

coincidentally, my middle name is actually Laurel...

Sorrel is lovely.

My ma's second name is Myrtle so I can't hear it objectively, and she's always been teased about it - time for a revival, maybe.

My lil biddy is called Juniper.. On our current girls list (which changes daily) for the new babies (pregnant with twins, not sure what sex yet) are -

Willa
Hebe (heebee)
Viola
Iris
Hermione

I'm not really a fan of Myrtle..

Hello aubers!

These names come to mind when thinking of Juniper and Myrtle:

Maud
Mirabelle
Coral
Aurelia
Aurora
Mabel
Clementine
Jasmine
Willow
Della

Hmmm, that's it actually. Just out of interest, why not Juniper or Myrtle, or are they already on your list and you just want to add to it?

Jonquil, Daphne, Amaryllis, Saffron

Is Viola pronounced Vee-o-la or Vi-o-la?

Iris is nice smile

Hello Imps! Good list. Clementine! That was ds's name is he were a girl - can't believe I'd forgotten it!

Tansy is pretty too. Is it a flower? <goes to google>

CharlieCoCo Thu 14-Jul-11 18:24:22

juniper, murtle and iris go well.

JanMorrow Thu 14-Jul-11 18:40:02

Vi-o-la (to rhyme with my).

thereisalightanditnevergoesout Fri 15-Jul-11 18:15:20

Tansy is a herb/flower, I think. I wanted it for DD2 but we ended up going with something else in the end.
