Just that really. I have a three year old daughter called Polly. I love her name and it really suits her. DD2 is due in three weeks and DH and I are really struggling to decide on a name. Names I like are Nina and Isla and DH likes both these names (prefers Nina as he thinks it is less popular than Isla) but also likes Rosie and Anna. I like his choices too but we are both unsure which of these names fits with DD1's name. Maybe that doesn't matter? Opinions welcomed.

.....I think they all go well with Polly.

Thanks for the replies. We are going to eliminate Isla from the list as there are three Isla's at the toddler group I go to with DD1 so seems quite popular. I want to eliminate Rosie too (I like it but don't think it fits that well with Polly) and DH has gone off it a bit. I am veering towards Nina at the moment and DH seems quite keen on the name now. He really likes Anna but we both now agree that we won't use it as we can see them getting a combined nickname of Pollyanna which would be awful.

Dont go for Anna - Polly Anna!

I like Nina from your names, can also suggest Erin.

I've been thinking about the name Polly as it goes well with our dd's name- Alice

My friend has twin daughters called Polly and Olivia, shortened to Livvy. It's a nice combo I think!

May is lovely and sounds right with Polly. Both names I love.

I think Nina goes well. Love the suggestion of Rosa up the thread though, that sounds perfect with Polly.
