I have narrowed my list down to a final 6 for potential girls names for a sibling for my DD Lily. Please tell me your favourite! (And least favourite too!!) And If you have any other suggestions please add as I just cannot find a name that I have fallen in love with like I did with Lily when I was pregnant.

Jasmine is my favourite. Maisie I can't bear.

Although was Amelia Lily not a contestant on x-factor? ARGH!

SuperGaGa Tue 20-Nov-12 17:13:04

I really like Emilia. It rolls off the tongue: "Lily and Emilia" (Although I also prefer Amelia :-)

Emilia's nice. Old-fashioned but pretty and not over-used.
I know an Isla, gets lots of jokes about marrying someone called Mr Wight, or Mann, etc.

Emilia - Amelia fine, don't like this spelling
Jasmine - ok, not hugely common
Isabel - Ok but loads and loads around
Maisie - twee, worse choice for me
Isla - nice name have a friend who has an Isla
Ava - my favourite from this list

Maisie is my favourite, though as anonymumous says maybe this works better as a nickname (though technically its a nickname for Margaret). Isla is my next favourite. Where I live you can't move for Isabel's so I've taken against it. Also Lily and Isabel doesn't really go too well together for some reason.

Anonymumous Mon 19-Nov-12 20:20:49

Emilia - too popular (taking into account all the Emilys and Amelias out there.)
Jasmine - <whispers lest someone gets self-righteous> Bit chavvy.
Isabel - too popular.
Maisie - a name for a guinea pig, not a child. Too 'nicknamey'.
Isla - I don't like this. I would worry about my daughter marrying a Mr. White.
Ava - I like this best with Lily. I gather it's become more popular in recent years, but I haven't met any.

In order of preference I would pick:

Jasmine is lovely and nn Minnie is nice too.
Ava and Isabel are very popular here unlike Isla like someone posted above. Think it depends where you are? Scotland?
Isla and Maisie are second
Also like Marcie

I like Jasmine the most.
I don't like Isla.

I think Isabel is the best. That's the name I would have chosen if my Lily had had a sister instead of 2 brothers.

I would personally have discounted Emilia completely as it's too similar to Lily, or at least it would be if, as is likely, it's ever shortened. I know 2 Emilias and one is known as Milly and one as Lily

Katydive Mon 19-Nov-12 17:55:24

Goodness me, be prepared for at least two other children you know to have these names they are very popular (and dare I say common in the nicest sense) at the moment

MrsBungleBear Mon 19-Nov-12 16:27:02

I quite like all of your names except Maisie (too twee for me).

I like Isla best but also like Emilia and Jasmine.

Jojay Mon 19-Nov-12 16:24:54

Favourite - Jasmine.
Least favourite - Maisie

ksrwr Mon 19-Nov-12 16:23:30

I like all these names but that would be my order of preference, with the first 4 a long way ahead of the last 2.

Beamur Mon 19-Nov-12 16:22:40

I like Jasmine the least, but it does 'go' well with Lily - if you wanted 2 flower named girls.
Like Ava and Emilia the best.
They are all nice, sweet names though.

ksrwr Mon 19-Nov-12 16:20:21


Lavenderhoney Mon 19-Nov-12 16:18:24

Do you like flower names? Violette is nice( well, I like itsmile

I like Isabel out of your list. Very prettysmile

YouOldSlag Mon 19-Nov-12 16:18:04

I like Jasmine best - you can't say it without thinking of beautiful flower.

Isabel is everywhere. Emilia is OK, like Emilia Fox. Maisie is awful- reminds of Maisy's Farm.

Ava- meh. Isla makes me think of Isla St Claire (old gimmer)

excitedfirsttimer Mon 19-Nov-12 16:14:02

I like Isabel as I think Bella is a lovely nickname. Maisie is very cute but may be more of a little girl name than an adult name

VerySmallSqueak Mon 19-Nov-12 16:11:58


ChippingInLovesAutumn Mon 19-Nov-12 16:09:22

Emilia - No, Emily or Amelia are both OK
Jasmine - Used to like it, gone off it through over use (sorry stuckinthefens)
Isabel - knock knock joke
Maisie - No 1 from your list
Isla - Not unless you want her to be one of 6 in her class, doesn't go with Lily
Ava - The one I know is a right little pain in the tush! So I wouldn't.

I love Jasmine. Also Jessamy and Jessica
