Kirsty, Fiona, Heather, Ailsa, Flora, Jennie

Skye? grin

Also Cara, Clara, Jura (grin), Seona (pronounced Shona), or Shona. Maighread/Mairet, Catriona, Eleanor, Elspeth, Morna, or Rowena. All have good Scottish connections, or just sound nice smile

Rosa, Freya, Hannah?

Margot.

I love Elspeth too. along with Seona, it's on my list of names I'd use in a heartbeat if my DH was also Scottish and could pronounce them grin As is Islay, although that remains a middle name contender.

Skye is a front runner but I'm northern and fear it would sound like isle of Skye when I shout " islay Skye!

Kveta Tue 02-Aug-11 13:54:55

they are both lovely names, but you would be limited if you had any future girls as to what you could name them to fit in with a scottish islands theme!! (obv for a boy you'd have Harris or Lewis though grin).

Isle of Skye would be pretty strange to be shouting after your girls too!

I really think you should not use Skye. Isla and Skye is too comical.

How about
Kirsty
Clara
Esme
Lorna

My friend has two daughters called Isla and Edie, which I think are lovely names. Pretty names for two gorgeous girls! Hope you manage to find a name you love and all goes well with the birth. x
