I'm due dc4 in 2 weeks, we have 3 boys with good strong Scottish names and have a couple of boys names we like if we have another boy, but are struggling a bit to agree on a girls name (don't know what we are having)
Names we are considering include Morven (dh's favourite but I'm not sure, Elspeth (I like this but ?too girly/ lispy), Isobel/ Ishbel (same issue)

I would appreciate any other suggestions or opinions on those names. We definitely don't want anything frilly, but something with a bit of oomph, so she can compete with her 3 big brothers!

Thanks for your help!

Our little girl is Bonnie may smile

I have a Bridget who is almost 4. I know its Irish rather than Scottish, but she is one feisty monkey.
And someone mentioned Saoirse? I love that name; means freedom. Gorgeous name.

But I must say I thought Merida when I read the thread title grin

Funnily enough a couple of the boys names are in Brave too! Ds2 has the horse's name I think grin, and I think one of the wee brothers has ds3's name

Merida is so nice! Shame everyone would say 'ah, from Brave'.
Elspeth is fab too.
Don't like Isobel, it's ubiquitous these days.

How about Mackenzie - mackie or kenzi for short?

Just updating to let you know we had a girl and decided she was definitely a Morven! All 9lb 5oz of her grin
thanks for helping us decide.
I think sometimes you just can't decide till you actually meet your baby

I am not going to get into the Vari// Mhairi thing again as the grammar re these has already been extensively explained. Grrrrr

The feistiest Scottish girl I know is called Una, cool name I think.
