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!

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

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

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

How about Mackenzie - mackie or kenzi for short?

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

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

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

Mine is 6 Mortified. I think it's a lovely name but she does get called Megan at school which is annoying!
