Hi there, I'm pregnant with baby no2. We have DD1, Isla Grace (chosen because we thought it was unusual! It was 3 yrs ago lol!) Anyway, have agreed on Samuel for a boy but stuck on girls. We have a few we both like but would appreciate opinions and suggestions. We want something that compliments DD'S name. SN begins with R. Not too bothered by popularity as names can take off so suddenly.

Love Alice and Annasmile

I think Zara, same amopunt of letters, two syllables, perfect!

Zara Alice goes well.

I think Anna or Zara go best. I really like Alice, but maybe sounds a bit too similar, as does Emilia.

Not so keen on Annabel, I think a shorter name complements Isla best.

From your list I would pick Alice. I personally think Isla and Emilia sound a bit too similar when said at speed but they are both gorgeous names so if that doesn't bother you then Amelia is a lovely choice. I like Amelie as well if that helps wink

Love Isla Grace - very pretty.

Annabel does not go with Isla imo because the only consonant in Isla is L and that is repeated in Annabel. Just doesn't work imo.

So anyway I suggest Maeve, Shona or Anya. Love Zara too. What about Zena?

Emilia is lovely, I also love Emmeline

Thank you for all your replies! It seems Emilia and Zara are most favoured.

Emilia Alice R...
Zara Alice R...

Like the suggestions of of Maeve & Anya too. xx

Louisa Alice would be nice.

We've got at Isla Ruby and a Freya Grace. Freya was very nearly Emilia, but thought I'd better go with DH's first choice name for dd2 as I had final say on dd1!!
Zara and Annabel were also on my names list so I think you've got great taste in names!!

oohlaalaa Tue 06-Sep-11 09:43:52

I think they are all very nice.

scarlettlips Tue 06-Sep-11 18:59:50

What about Isla and Emma??

Whist I love Emilia it's a but much with Isla imo

scarlettlips Tue 06-Sep-11 19:00:39

Should of said for your list....Alice! smile
