I've been over this a 100 times and i can't figure it out. I also keep changing my mind which isn't helping blush

We love DD's name as it's strong yet feminine whist being a bit different and not hugely popular. Not as easy second time around!!!

Grateful if you could help me pick a first and middle name. smile too go with DD - Honor

Katherine aka Kit
Iona (IMO sounds too much like DD's name, mn?)
Charlotte (popular, but i do like it)
Beatrice aka Bibi
Darcey (can't get past 'arse' in the middle)

Absolutely Claudia out of your list.

Many of the others are too plain to go with Honor and some I just don't like (Cosima).

Chipping that's our problem...they all seem quite plain along side Honor. It's a real bugger grin

Alice, Beatrice or Cosima.

I like Claudia, Serena and Beatrice. Claudia goes best with Honor.

Really don't like Cosima, Darcey, Marina and India.

So unsurprisingly, given my list, I do v much like Beatrice and Rose. I also love Alice - it's very classic but so pretty. I know a lovely Marina and I think that goes well with Honor, although I prob wouldn't pick it myself. Agree that Claudia is pretty. Otherwise agree with Chipping...

I like Catherine/Kitty but not Kit
Iona (IMO sounds too much like DD's name, mn?) - too similar to Honor and not a v nice name

Charlotte- popular, but i do like it - so do I!
Davina - horrible, horrible name - sorry but it is
India - not fond
Claudia - I like it but prefer Claudette
Beatrice aka Bibi - nice
Alice - great name
Rose - ok
Marina - not fond
Darcey - ok
Violet - love it
Cosima - hate this
Serena - hate this

How about Marianne (much nicer than Marina imho) or Vivienne (miles better than Davina).

Beatrice or Violet

Kit or Marina for me.

Katherine aka Kit - too popular to go with Honor
Iona (IMO sounds too much like DD's name, mn?) you are right to avoid.
Charlotte (popular, but i do like it) - popular yes, nice yes but not nice enough to go with honor
Davina - ok
India - had its day now I think
Claudia - love
Beatrice aka Bibi - love but too popular
Alice - see Katherine and Beatrice
Rose - see Alice, Katherine and Charlotte
Marina - not my favourite name
Darcey (can't get past 'arse' in the middle) - no.
Violet - love but not keen on Vi
Cosima - love
Serena - ok

The list is too long, i know...with MN's help it will been shorted blush grin

ChippingInToThePumpkinLantern Sun 16-Oct-11 15:57:42

Shorten it to Claudia - problem solved grin

SESthebrave Sun 16-Oct-11 16:01:25

Just my opinion but.....

Katherine aka Kit - I like Katharine but not Kit. I prefer Katie as a shortened version

Iona (IMO sounds too much like DD's name, mn?) - nice but does sound too much like your DD1

Charlotte (popular, but i do like it) - I like this too!

Davina - Everyone will think Davina McCall

India - nice and I think goes well with Honor

Claudia - same as for India

Beatrice aka Bibi - I like Beatrice but not Bibi. I prefer Bea

Alice - nice

Rose - ok

Marina - sorry don't like it

Darcey (can't get past 'arse' in the middle) - I like Darcey but now you've said that about "arse", you'll never forget it

Violet - ok

Cosima - sorry I don't like it

Serena - ok

I also like the suggestion of Marianne

chipping LOL...!!

cakeismysaviour Sun 16-Oct-11 16:05:59

If it were me, I would be shortening the list to Beatrice, Rose, Charlotte, Claudia and Violet. I have also listed them in order of preference, i.e Beatrice is my favourite.

Katherine, Beatrice and Rose are my favourites. Alice is also nice.

ImpYCelyn Sun 16-Oct-11 16:46:17


Are all lovely. None of the others go well with Honor imo.

Psammead Sun 16-Oct-11 18:30:44

I like Beatrice.

How about Ursula? I always think of it as a nice, strong, feminine name,

MrsJohnDeere Sun 16-Oct-11 18:35:26

Claudia or Beatrice

Willabywallaby Sun 16-Oct-11 18:36:09

Serena Catherine

I hate when people sugguest totally different other names on these threads, but what about Hope? I am afraid I don't really like any of your sugguestions. Maybe Alice (biased).

Honor and Hope.

Match, but different, unless you don't want the same initials.
