Have posted on here before as me and DH are trying to come up with names for our triplets. Going for a nature theme.
Already have two DD - April and Autumn.


DH really likes Ember, I love Terra, just not sure how well they would go with other names.
Would like general opinions on names, and also which you think would go best together, and any other suggestions.
Thanks everyone.

I met a lady called Rosina the other day, it's a lovely name I think and would go well with Hazel and Eve.

MerryMarigold Mon 04-Nov-13 11:00:57

April, Autumn, Ivy, Laurel and Ember

Oooh, I like Raine.

Also from other suggestions on this thread I like Laurel, Stella, Fearne and Seren.

Really don't like Raven (as Merry said, Ravens are not nice!) or Terra (terror!)

Congratulations on your triplets.

Raine, Niamh (pronounced 'neve') as someone has already suggested & Megan ? I think they sound nice together, other nice names that are a bit unusual/ Celtic sounding Tamsin, Tegan, Zara, Tamara, Damaris.

I love love love 1805s suggestion!!! Totally gorgeous!

April, Autumn, Ivy, Skye, and Willow.

Oh, have to say I really hate Raven. It sounds a bit evil and spooky to me. Ravens are not nice.

MerryMarigold Sat 02-Nov-13 09:31:27

I think if you have 2 A's already, I don't see why 2 E's are a problem. However, I don't see 'Eve' as going so well with the other names. You may just need a bank of names and hand them out when born. I spent a week naming my twins as I went off my pre-planned names a week before they were born. My boy ended up with a name I had never considered, and I love it. He was in Special Care for a week and was just called 'Twin 2', bless him!

Laurel is GORGEOUS (as in the tree).

Sorry to be slightly facetious but if these are your last children how about Xanthe, Yasmin and Zinnia?

Thank you takeitonthegin.

op Sienna is Italian and describes an orangey brown colour.

Laurel means The Bay (latin) but there is also a laurel plant.

How about:

Seren (means star in welsh)
Aurora (meaning dawn)

ohmymimi Fri 01-Nov-13 12:33:13

Sorrell, Baye, Tansy.

MortifiedAnyFuckerAdams Fri 01-Nov-13 12:14:49

Ember, Olive and Fearne

CountingStars Fri 01-Nov-13 12:13:16

What are the meanings of Laurel and Sienna? Thank you.

HuglessDouglas, I really like Raine/Raven and Eve/Ember, but I know I shouldn't pick more than one of the same letter, so hard!

Well, Holly, Robyn and Stella or Eva would be nature + festive season but perhaps you like a bit more unusual.

I know a grown up Clementine- very timeless name. With Nicolette and Seraphina?

Good luck!

takeitonthegin Fri 01-Nov-13 10:15:52

Some of the names suggested are so unusual and beautiful.

I think Laurel and Sienna are very pretty and a bit autumnal.

Congratulations smile

Ember, Skye and Luna

Aurora, Stella and Fleur

CountingStars Thu 31-Oct-13 22:35:36

I do like Clementine, I just can't picture it on anyone older than about 12. But I guess everyone has their own opinion on names! I am due in December/January.

Our dog is called Barley, so I like the name, but, you can see why we can't really use it!

I think Hazel and Eve are our top two right now.

Do you think two E names would be pushing it?

MerryMarigold Thu 31-Oct-13 21:45:07

Oh, Clementine is lovely and not at all babyish.

Wow, congrats on the triplets. How far are you?

Skye is a bit 'been there, done that' I think even though it does go nicely with other names. I think the others are a lot more unusual.

How about Tierra? It's a bit less like 'terrible' than Terra.

Hazel is very nice.

I know a Barley (girl), which I like.


Dawn (It's such a lovely word and due a revival)

I personally really like Ember, to me it is a bright spark, but I think you'd have to have very dark eyed girls with shiny eyes that light up a room (like my dd! That name would so suit her). Not so keen on Terra - sorry.

CountingStars Thu 31-Oct-13 17:56:46

Would appreciate some more replies.

CountingStars Thu 31-Oct-13 10:01:42

Morning everyone,

manicinsomniac, yes wasn't too sure about Honey, like Posy and Celmentine but DH thinks that is too baby-ish.

BlackholesAndRevelations , It's okay, probably should have made that clearer, just assumed people would have seen my other threads! I have a friend called Calla, so can't really use that.

monkeymamma , thank you! I quite like Eve and Hazel.

KateCroydon, don't like the name Amber as much, but mostly just don't want to do another A name.

wigglesrock , thank you, that gives me the idea to check out the seasons in other languages!

Grumblelion, I like Saffron, but DH doesn't. Neither of us particularly like any of the others, but thank you for your suggestions.

MerryMarigold, sorry have been assuming people have seen my other threads. I have have two daughters, April and Autumn, and I am pregnant with triplets, I think I said in the title, but they'e girls.

MerryMarigold Thu 31-Oct-13 09:18:32

Do you mean you already have 2 DD called April and Autumn and you're having TRIPLETS on top so looking for 3 more names. (Are the triplets boys or girls?).

Or, are you expecting girl triplets and looking for a single name to go with April and Autumn? (Personally wouldn't go for the same initial if I were you).

Luz (light in Spanish)
Rae is brilliant
Aurora is gorgeous
Woody - Love this, for a boy
