DC2 is a girl, I have found out I don't like many girls names! List below, opinions and other thoughts welcome!! Ethan is her big brother, surname Loy

Kate! Best name ever....

MyDingaling Thu 21-Jul-11 22:00:49

I love Esther

kalo12 Thu 21-Jul-11 22:03:15

love kate Loy
emilia Loy is a bit of a mouthful
Diana Loy?

mrswoodentop Thu 21-Jul-11 22:05:55

Love all of those names;what about

as well

GirlWithTheMouseyHair Thu 21-Jul-11 22:06:54

oh, and middle name ought to be Rae for family reasons, but cos Kate Rae Loy doesn't work, middle name will probably be Emily or Juliet (neither of which I like enough to be first names but have emotional resonance)

GirlWithTheMouseyHair Thu 21-Jul-11 22:07:14

I LOVE Iris - DH says it's an old lady name (humph)

PaperBank Thu 21-Jul-11 22:19:16

Esther - OK, although I do think "Rantzen". How about Estella?
Phoebe - like
Kate - would use Katherine as full name. A bit bland TBH
Emilia - lovely

Eglu Thu 21-Jul-11 22:20:54

My recently born DD was going to be Phoebe but DH wasn't keen. I think its a great name. I also like Emilia.

MelinaM Thu 21-Jul-11 22:26:35

Phoebe or Kate for mesmile Catharine Rae Loy maybe?

BabesandJugs Thu 21-Jul-11 23:08:18

Ethan and Esther , i'm unsure, and think they are a little too close.

Of your list i adore Kate - simple but very very elegant and under used!

How about Susannah? I love Susannah

Susannah Rae Loy? Also think it's lovely with Ethan

Other Suggestions erm,

Georgia (or Georgina)

I like your list of names, except Esther.

I think a longer name would be better with your surname, how about:-

Catherine nn Kate

GirlWithTheMouseyHair Fri 22-Jul-11 08:38:09

Georgia and sasha I like. I love charlotte but really don't like inevitable nn of Charlie.

Agree a longer name goes with our surname better but Kate is my fav and I don't really like any of the long versions. Would it be so bad to have one syllable first and surname?

CollieandPup Fri 22-Jul-11 11:19:37

I think Phoebe is really common post friends..?! Also not too keen.

Love emilia, and think Emilia Rae Loy sounds nice.

Iris is lovely, my dn has that name.

kri5ty Fri 22-Jul-11 11:30:24

I like Kate with your surname!!

it has a ring to it

GirlWithTheMouseyHair Fri 22-Jul-11 12:49:17

phew.....I think I'm going off all the others but want a list rather than one option and decide when she arrives (feel like I'm tempting fate to name her before she's born)

brodanbell Fri 22-Jul-11 14:12:42

agree I think names with 3 or 4 syllables would go better with Loy, although having said that Kate Loy does have some sort of impact, but feels a bit plain to me. I like Emilia.

CloudC Fri 22-Jul-11 14:49:54

Esther for me. Sounds lovely with your surname.

Ephiny Fri 22-Jul-11 15:01:06

Don't really like Esther (and it's a bit similar to Ethan IMO) or Phoebe, Kate is nice but maybe a longer name would sound better with your very short surname, especially as the middle name is going to be short as well!

Emilia goes quite nicely with the surname. I think Emily is good too, and a bit less 'frilly' than Emilia. Or how about Eleanor?

GirlWithTheMouseyHair Fri 22-Jul-11 19:49:38

If we choose Kate as the first name, her middle name will be Emily or Juliet - though I do quite like Juliet for a first name, I hate Jules!!

Does Lyra Loy sound ridiculous? I've always loved it but thought maybe it sounds like a high class escort....

kalo12 Fri 22-Jul-11 19:58:40

lyra loy is deffo high class escort,
will it be Kate on birth cert? Katerina / Katherine

seeker Fri 22-Jul-11 20:03:59

What about Hester?

Nn Hettie

redheadbedhead Fri 22-Jul-11 20:06:32

mwah ha ha mousey you've been caught stealing my name wink

I think Lyra Loy is quite cool- reminds me of Lucy Lui (is that how you spell it??) - doesn't really remind me of an escort actually. But i think other people might think otherwise!!!!

redheadbedhead Fri 22-Jul-11 20:07:41

for what it's worth I think Emilia Rae Loy is a really cool name smile

goodnightmoon Fri 22-Jul-11 20:09:41

lyra loy sounds great
