Names like Ella-May

If anyone's not sick of me asking yet, please can I have more ideas! I still can't find a girls name I love and am due in December. I really like Lucia still but I don't love it. I don't like classic names at all, so nothing like Elizabeth. I do like:

Cutesy pretty names
Ones that are not very common (outside of top 100)

Someone told me they have a little call called Ella-May today and I thought that fitted my criteria, but it's still not quite right. Please can you suggest some similar ish names you think I might like?

Thank you smile

Thanks, some good suggestions! I have a Poppy already so you're on the right lines of the things I like (though this time I'm after something more unusual than Poppy). It doesn't have to be a hyphenated name though, so any ideas of pretty names are welcome. (I do like the others but because of some of the first names being friend's babies names I have to rule them out sad)

Myla

Blossom
Faye
Annabel

I think hyphenated names will date so would avoid if I were you.

Cara-May

Myla reminds me of Myra (hindley).

I like Blossom but then it's a bit close to Bosom.

Don't go! I know I know, I should be less fussy!

Hmm I am starting to go off the hyphenated names now....

Kitty.

Double barrelled names always reek trailer trash to me - sorry watched Dukes of Hazard too much as a child I think.

How about
Phoebe
Scarlet

Alltheflowers Wed 17-Oct-12 15:11:30

Ok no more hyphenated names.

Kitty reminds me of the annoying one off X factor last year, sorry.

I like Phoebe and Scarlet but friends have taken those sad

Honey.
Betsy.
Anais.

As noted above, hyphenated names are trendy so you may wish to pick something a little more off the beaten path to avoid it sounding dated in a few years.

I suggest:
Audrey
Bonnie
Brontë
Calla
Cecily
Cleo
Coralie
Daisy
Dulcie
Edie
Eleanor or Elinor
Elodie
Eloise
Emily
Flora
Georgia
Juliet
Lacey
Lucy
Melissa
Pippa
Rosalie
Rosie
Ruby
Sadie
Willa
Zoe

Pearl
Penelope
Annabelle
Isabelle
Camille
Nell
Eleanor
Tabitha
Imogen
Olivia
Livia
Mia

Luisa
Nuala (Noo-la)

What about Lucy?

It a really pretty name which would suit a small girl and a professional adult. Goes well with Poppy IMHO

Viviennemary Wed 17-Oct-12 16:36:50

I'm not so keen on these. Do you like flower names. Like Violet and Iris. I do. I quite like Ella on its own but not teamed up with anything as a first name.

Viviennemary Wed 17-Oct-12 16:37:40

Didn't see you already have a Poppy. Maybe two flower names wouldn't be a good idea. Not sure.

I think Bridie would go with Poppy.
