PG with dd3. Due in three weeks. Honest opinions wanted!

Charlotte - Long term front runner, maybe going off now slightly

Naomi - Has been in the running with both dd1 and dd2 but always dismissed at the last minute.

Florence - I LOVE. dh is a bit meh. Not sure if it would be considered 'weird' in our local area where made up names seem prevalent and old fashioned names not so much.

Elsa - New front runner. Discovered this the other day. Dh loves. I really like. But dd1 has a 3 letter first name also beginning with an E (think Adams wife with an A) so could be a problem?

Naomi is a lovely name, a classic but also quite unusual at the moment.

sandberry Fri 25-Oct-13 21:13:21

How about Ailsa, that would go with the other two and sounds similar to Elsa. I think the slight different in sound would stop it being too close to E*a

They are nice but Elsa only for a lion.

Eva and Elsa are too similar IMO.

Charlotte lovely - three in my dd's class - depends if that would bother you.

Florence -lovely - my fave.

capercaillie Fri 25-Oct-13 21:20:26

Think Elsa goes ok with the other name if begins with A.

I don't like Florence but love Naomi

CityGal29 Fri 25-Oct-13 21:37:53

Love Naomi
Avoid Charlotte extremely common
Elsa ok but not as solid a name as Naomi perhaps?

weaselinthenight Fri 25-Oct-13 21:44:05

Definitely Elsa. Lovely name and I think it goes much better with those of your other daughters than the alternatives.

funnyflowersky Fri 25-Oct-13 21:44:55

I love Naomi, it not that popular and it sounds lovely.

Charlotte makes me yawn it's so boring. Florence and Elsa are too old lady for me.

SatinSandals Fri 25-Oct-13 21:53:32

Charlotte and Naomi are lovely.
Florence OK
Don't like Elsa.

Iwaswatchingthat Fri 25-Oct-13 21:57:58


It is a Charlotte style name, but less popular around me.

thegreylady Fri 25-Oct-13 22:05:28

Have you considered Esme or Elsie?

Mattissy Fri 25-Oct-13 22:06:30

I love Elsa and wanted it for a girl but stupidly called my dog it before I had children, by then I couldn't obviously give it to a daughter, lol. How about

I really like Florence.

Know a gazillion Charlottes.

Naomi, meh! Prefer Niamh, or Neve if you prefer a modern spelling.

thegreylady Fri 25-Oct-13 22:06:52

Eliza is nice too I think.
I like Charlotte and Florence and love Naomi though the only one I know has the unfortunate nickname Nome!

comeandgo Fri 25-Oct-13 22:15:18

Love Niamh but cannot use because of surname.

Same problem with Elsie.

NachoAddict Fri 25-Oct-13 22:19:07

I like Charlotte.
Don't like Florence or Naomi.
Do like Elsa but don't think it goes with your other E name, a bit match-y for me, both starting E and ending A. I do like Elsie though or Alice.

SpottedDickandCustard Fri 25-Oct-13 22:19:53

Love Naomi

Elsa is very nice too.

Florence and Charlotte too twee for me I'm afraid. Plus I don't like the nickname potential. DS has "Flo" and "Charlie" in his class.

comeandgo Fri 25-Oct-13 22:20:28

Can't use Alice because of family.

happy2help Fri 25-Oct-13 22:33:42

Florence is my favourite, but it seems the least popular on this thread.

UriGHOULer Sat 26-Oct-13 07:34:20

I still can't see the problem. Introduce them to the vicar, "This is Eva. And this is Elsa". Sounds fine. Call them in for dinner. "Evaaaa" "Elsaaaa" sounds great. "I have 3 girls." And say all three names, Beautiful names.

Remember they aren't joined at the hip and will be introducing themselves without their siblings in a few years.

I also came on to suggest Ailsa rather than Elsa. It is so pretty but a bit less like your other daughter's name.

comeandgo Sat 26-Oct-13 12:12:36

Ailsa is lovely but it really reminds me of Home and Away <<shows age>>

ForalltheSaints Sat 26-Oct-13 12:14:51

Charlotte I would choose out of your list. Florence is a Magic Roundabout character and what one of my parents cats is called.

killpeppa Sat 26-Oct-13 12:16:29


how beautiful. florriesmile

comeandgo Sat 26-Oct-13 13:19:27

I know, I love both Florrie and Flossie. Not keen on Flo though.

If Charlotte we would use Lottie.
