What is your boys name?

I love Iris & Jasmine, but all good names.

I like Pearl and Isla from your list. I also think Ella goes very well.

I think a Lily and Molly would be a sweet sibling set smile

Violet is beautiful, goes perfectly with Lily .....

I would avoid another flower name (Iris, Violet, Jasmine) as it's too matchy with Lily. For me, Isabella, Ava, and Florence all work really well, but Isabella is my favourite of those, especially with Bella or Isa as a NN.

If you are going Jamie Oliver's way then Lily and Daisy or Lily and Iris but if it's Victorian you are after then Lily and Florence.
PS Is boy's name Buddy by any chance? ;

Florence, Jasmine, Isabella or Isla. 3 of those were on my list when choosing a name to go with my Lily smile

I had a boy though grin

The Lily I know with sisters has sisters called Mollie Emily and Josie..

From your list I like Mollie and Isla to go with Lily the best.

Thanks guys. I am a bit confused as whether to go for 2 flower names of one of the other names. I have a boys name I like, Oliver (although not sure what DP thinks yet!!!!). I just like all the names on my list and not one stands out to me at the minute. I guess I have a long while to think (am only 5 weeks), but I am excited!!

I wouldn't choose another flower name personally. Lily and Ava would be lovely.

I like Emilia but Milly is a common nickname for it. Milly and Lily is not good! I have myself forever vetoed Emilia by thoughtlessly naming my puppy Milly. SIGH!

DD is Lily and when we were expecting DC3 (who turned out to be an Oliver, so approve of that choice!) if it was a girl I was set on Daisy until, in the last month, we settled on Isabel as I suddenly had a feeling that two flower names would have been too twee.

We would have gone for Isabella but as we already had two short names (Lily and Toby) we felt that it wouldn't have 'fitted' well with those

Violet smile congratulations

i like Pearl and Isla, think they sound lovely with Lily.

Thanks for the suggestions! I was going over names again last night and I would really like May as a middle name (I know it is sooo popular but my nans name was Eva Florence May so would really like to use one of those names as a middle name and I like May the best). I think Ava May sounds nice and Violet May. My great grandmother was called Violet May (I only just found this out so I think that is quite nice but not sure of another flower name?) Although Violet is also a colour so may not sound so matchy as something like Daisy or Poppy etc? I really love Ava May too as it sounds a bit like my nans name Eva Florence May. I wish I could ask family in real life but I have been told by DP we are not allowed to tell anyone until 12 weeks! I am finding this hard!!

I guess I don't need to pick a name yet but I am just so excited, I love girls names!!! I am bursting to tell someone this morning in real life but must keep it in!!!
