Dp and I can not agree on names at all and its really starting to stress us out as she's due on Tuesday and we can't just call her baby!
He wants Olivia Grace
I want Jessica Jade nn JJ
Ds has come up with helpful suggestions like Parsnip and Blossom, both of which appeal to me more than Olivia!
Anyone got any suggestion we both might like?
Thank you!!

A friend of mine has a little one called Olivia but they call her Libby which I think is cute. Georgia is fine if you arnt going to see George every weeksmile

Jessie J? I think that's taken!

Prefer your DH's choices to yours.

Grace is lovely.

Georgia is lovely and I don't think it will be a problem that she has a second cousin called George.

Blossom is actually a name!

Olivia Grace - very popular names but middle class concervative

Jessica Jade - quite rough family names

What about Tess Jasmine

My fave girls name is Bridget

My dd is Bridget Anne

Or even Jean, which I think is due a renaissance.

The other advantage of Georgina is that it also shortens to Gina.

I agree if you see George a couple of times a year, go for Georgia. If you see him often, I wouldn't.

Other names you and hubby might like:

What about Georgina - slightly more different from George and you can call her GG if you like alliterative nns?

Hester is cool! Or Leah? Or if he likes Harper Lee (sounds like he does!) what about Jean Louise (Scout's real name) or Nelle (Harper Lee's first name)

My neighbor's child was called Olivia Grace, her nickname was Gracey/Gracie not sure how they spelt it. Almost no one knew her name was Olivia.

Georgia is lovely and I don't think it matters that your cousin has a George.
Really dislike JJ and Jade. Jessica is nice and although I used to like Olivia, there are just too many of them now.

JojoMags Sun 19-May-13 14:35:55

Harper is awful. Harpies, harp on about, harper barfer.... don;t do it. And Harper Leigh is silly because of Harper Lee. There are much, much nicer quirky names out there if you want to go quirky.

If you like Harper, what about Hester?

Runoutofideas Sun 19-May-13 14:11:24

Depends if it is a cousin you see twice a week, or once a year.... I love Georgia but am a bit biased on that one! By the way she was nearly Jessica.

cookiewuk Sun 19-May-13 12:11:25

So dp and I have managed to agree that we both like Georgia! The problem now being that my cousin has a little boy called George, is it too similar?
Things can never be simple for us!

Layl77 Sat 18-May-13 17:43:21

All fine except JJ! Noooo...
Wait until you see her!

aftermay Sat 18-May-13 17:30:07

No, not JJ.

sleepingbeautiful Sat 18-May-13 15:57:44

Agree with Remus on Harper Leigh being too like Harper Lee.
I think it's ok to use Harper. The Beckhams don't own it.
Harper Grace?

Harper Leigh is silly because of the writer. Don't like Jade at all, and really don't like JJ.

Jessica Grace is nice.

I wish I had the guts and the surname to use a name like Harper smile

petitdonkey Fri 17-May-13 18:17:00

Olivia and Jessica are both beautiful names but I think you both have to try and find something you love. I have a good friend who agreed to her DH's choice without loving the name and it still makes her a bit sad. There are so many beautiful girls names out there.

I suggest that you both write a list of a minimum of five names - excluding the ones you have mentioned here and try and start again.


I could go on naming girls all day!!

(by the way, my niece is Jade Josephine and throughout pregnancy it was planned that she would be JJ - she is 15 now and I have never heard her called that!!)

wiltingfast Fri 17-May-13 18:08:09

Olivia is a lovely name. None around here.

Quite like jessica too but hate the jade and jj!

Unfortunately olivia jessica is a bit of a mouthful.

Jessica grace?

Harper is v beckham.

Maybe he might like other unisex names? I've seen taylor and scout suggested for girls. Or maybe something like rowan?

Harper Leigh is really nice. Harper makes me think more of Neil Patrick Harris than the Beckhams.
