Sister for James and Isabella

Hi there, so had my 21 week scan today and it's a girl! I was CONVINCED it was a boy but it's not it's a girl (it's a girl!).

Okay so over the shock now... so here's the question, what is James' and Isabella's little sister called?
I need a name that isn't as popular as my first two choices, which is as lovely as Isabella (because I love it), can't have an 'r' in middle, such as Zara as surname begins with R and then it sounds a bit rarara.

Here's two of my contenders:
Georgia (has r in middle but isn't final consonant so works okay)
Poppy (cute but maybe not classic enough?)

DH likes:
Sophie (already taken)
Chloe (meh for me)
Emily (too popular) because he wants to call her Lemony!

Oh yeah and the surname is actually one syllable and begins with 'Ro' so like names that contain an 'o' but this is not completely necessary.

Adore Georgia (live nn George). Sophie is a great second. Poppy doesn't quite go.

Congratulations pinkglitter
I've been lurking on this thread as the OP's childrens names are very similar to my older two and wondered if there was any chance you might end up with the same for the 3rd! Several people have suggested it so far...

Congratulations! It's a lovely name x

Yes, they decided on Charlotte in the end - it was on another thread with the title - "Emma, Poppy or Charlotte?"! smile

Absolutely agree about not being too plain! I wouldn't want the new baby to feel they were given a plain name compared to Isabella! Good luck choosing & will keep in touch to see what you decide smile

Hi puddles yes we would definitely have similar taste, your list is great :-)

I have totally found the same pink glitter that a lot of names are too similar or 'rhymey' with Isabella - such as Emma and Helena. Or too plain/simple! You can't have a DD called Isabella and then have a DD called Ann for example as the styles totally clash.

Dear Hawk - Please! No need to apologise - I wasn't remotely offended!! Very sorry if I gave that impression. As you can see from my silly 'number of syllables' mistake, I am obviously not expressing myself very clearly today.

All the best.

pinkglitter2 Wed 15-Jan-14 14:50:09

Oo forgot to add that we like Isla which is Scottish but we think it may be too similar to Isabella even though it is pronounced differently.

Puddles1234 Wed 15-Jan-14 14:48:49

I love James and Isabella.

This is our girls name list, it may not be too your tastes but it's is classic nonetheless.

Please let us know what you decide.

Well if it helps I can offer you the names we have thought of but unfortunately we can't decide because there isn't a name that stands out like it did with Isabella... They are;


All of the other names are 2 syllables - it's so hard isn't it especially horrible when the due date arrives (mine was yesterday) and we haven't settled on any name!
