As the title says really......

Already have a Phoebe (10), love the fact she's the only one at her school (it wasn't very popular round here back then).

3 weeks away from another girl and really really stuck on a name. Its just so hard and every name reminds me of someone else/I know one/etc etc!

Really like:

Amelie- Was our no.1 choice, but now know of another born last week
Poppy-fav to go with Phoebe but next doors dog
Georgia-sit next to her dad at work
Elsie/Elsa-DH not too keen
Summer-DH's pick, I'm not sure, is it a bit predictable (due in August etc)
Sadie-Is it cute for a baby or cute for a dog?

Argh!!!! Its just so difficult and I now I'm on mat. leave have developed an addiction to check baby names forums every hour!

On your list, my favourites would be Summer & Elsa.

Phoebe and Annabel! Sorted.

belgo Tue 26-Jul-11 15:04:38

both go well with Pheobe

Keep Summer for a middle name.

InstantAtom Tue 26-Jul-11 15:05:27

Poppy or Georgia.

Ursula? wink

LOVE the name Georgia. Think it sounds pretty and strong and goes well with Phoebe.
Think your right about Sadie being a cute dogs name!!

Annabel it is then..actually sorry i don't like it anna maybe though.

Def can't do poppy as the link with next doors dog....

I do love 'Georgia summer' but just wonder if she'll be one of a few at school and have to include her surname initial on everything, which will really bug me.

Lol.. The comment on ursula, dh actually suggested it when reading the baby book and didn't get the connection!!!

lchodge Tue 26-Jul-11 15:38:18

Georgia Summer is beautiful whats the surname?

Not heard anyone thinking of the name Georgia and dont know of any at my daughters school. Wouldn't worry too much about popularity it's hard enough just choosing a name you and your partner agree on!

I have a Georgia and she's the only one in her year of 90 children at school, there is one other in the year below and none at dd2's preschool if that helps!

Don't know why but you say Phoebe I say Eleanor/Elinor.

Your DD Phoebe has a lovely name. Good luck with the next!

Amelie -very pretty but apparently getting quite popular.
Poppy -a dog's name for me too! Not ideal for a grown woman either imho.
Georgia - OK ( but to me is an American state names -she could be Carolina or Arizona!)
Elsie/Elsa- Quite pretty
Summer - a bit faddy/hippy?
Sadie - sorry, the sound just makes me think of 'sadism'!

Phoebe is a classical Greek name - how about another one like Ariane, Damaris, Alethea/Althea, Cora, Chloe, Cassandra or Daphne?

Chloe would be great. When I was a teenager I loved the names Chloe and Phoebe.

I instantly thought Amelia when I saw the thread title, but then I'm rubbish at choosing baby names. My DC's have got names that I just loved, rather than fitting together or sounding good together IYSWIM

LetThereBeRock Tue 26-Jul-11 16:48:20

I like Sadie and Georgia best,but Georgia works especially well with Phoebe imho. It's a beautiful name.

Panzee Tue 26-Jul-11 16:52:52

hocuspontas you beat me to it!

Amelie is my favourite, how about:-


proudfoot Tue 26-Jul-11 18:45:41

From your list I would definitely go for Elsa - absolutely brilliant name. Love it.

Other names that popped into my head to go with Phoebe are Imogen, Harriet, Clara, Freya.

ThePrincessRoyalFiggyrolls Tue 26-Jul-11 19:47:17

proudfoot did you read Jilly Cooper novels? grin I love all of your above names - Phoebe and Imogen where up there for me if ds was a girl!

minipie Tue 26-Jul-11 19:49:02

Georgia definitely goes best with Phoebe (can't explain why it just does!)

Elsa goes quite well

Poppy, Sadie, Elsie IMO don't really "go" - Phoebe is quite a grown up name whereas those are little-girly names.

Summer doesn't go either IMO - Phoebe is classic and Summer is quite hippy

Amelie is ok but makes me think of the film and I think might date quite badly.

so... has to be Georgia or Elsa

or you could of course just make up your own mind grin

I like Esme but I gather it's getting popular now.

I also think Hannah goes well or Lucy.
