Sister for Lily - please help!

(28 Posts)

Please help - I am really struggling to find nice girls' names for a sister for Lily - well, I've got loads I like but not many that DP & I agree on.

We've got a few we're ok with, but none that are making us go 'wow'!

The ones we like so far are:
Nina
Sadie
Hazel
Zoe

I don't know if there's a pattern there, but can anyone think of any similar names? My general criteria is: not too popular but not 'out there', goes with Lily (so not Milly, Tilly etc), not beginning with 'L', and not a flower name.

Please help - thank you so much! smile

A few of our "rejects" (eg made the short list but we didn't go with it the end) include:
Freya
Katy
Isobella
Imogen
I also like Robyn, Romily, Faye.
Not sure if that's any help!
I like your list - Nina is cool because it makes me think of Nina Simone, would be cute on a baby.

I know you said no flowers but how about Iris? Think it goes lovely with Lily.

I wanted Elspeth but my DH said it was too odd.

Don't google the lyrics of Ian Dury & the Blockheads (billericay Dickie) because then you would not choose Nina!

My favourite on your list is Hazel, not sure if its too old-lady-ish though. I don't think any of the others go with Lily

Everlong Sat 08-Oct-11 19:15:26

Lily and Anna
Lily and Tess

Why not a flower name? Rosie goes well - and you do have Hazel in there.

Sophie?

Maddy?

Florence?

Nina - grown on me recently, I think it's really cute.
Sadie - like it. Also cute
Hazel - used to love it, now not so sure. It's fine.
Zoe - like it. Nothing special but a nice name.

Similar alternatives:
Nadia, Niamh, Nadine, Naomi, Nyah, Nia, Nikita
Sydney, Seren, Saffie, Sienna, Sana, Skylar
Hollie, Heidi, Honey, Hope, Hayden, Harper, Hallie
Zara, Zia, Zofia, Xantha

Other names I think go well with Lily personally:
Amelia, Alannah, Abigail, Charlotte, Erin, Francesca, Georgina, Imogen, Juliette, Matilda, Rosa, Sophia.
