I already have a son Elliott and we have a potential boys name but unsure for a girl (due in 2 weeks!). I love both for different reasons so your opinions would be helpful!:

Phoebe Hope (worried a bit common) or.....
Colette Hope (worried a bit similar sounding to Elliott?)

Thanks :-)

I agree with others. I like Colette, but too similar to Elliot I think. Phoebe for me.

I see you have pretty much settled on Phoebe - good choice smile

Though I like Hope a wee bit more.

Colette an awful lot less!

Elliot is very cute smile

My grandmother was a Nicolette, which I think is a bit softer than Colette and wouldn't sound so much like Elliott.

I'm not personally keen on Phoebe, but really you need to chooe the name you love the best.

I'm not overkeen on either. Cecilia is lovely.

Phoebe is lovely and nice for all ages, not so keen on Colette, sorry

Both lovely, but love Colette: feminine, elegant, strong. And some pretty potential nicknames.

Really don't like Phoebe, but Colette is lovely. A classic name that would be good at any stage of her life. Phoebe is not an old woman's name.

I was expecting horrible names on this thread as per most of them, but your 2 options are both lovely. If it makes a difference to you, Phoebe is quite a Christian name, are you a Christian? That was the only thing that took Phoebe off my list. I used to love a book when I was a child about a little girl called Phoebe who had a hot water bottle. And Colette sounds very stylish.
