Hi All!
I hope doing this right as this is my first ever post!
Me and my OH really can't find a girls name we like or agree on, we already have a little bit called Noah and that came to us straight away, this is proving much more difficult!
The names we like so far are: Minnie (my fave) violet (his fave), florence, nancy, vivenne, etc, but we just can't decide on one, or they just aren't sticking with us? We really like olive but my Sister in Law named her girls Olivia sad!
Please help! any suggestions of classic old names are very very welcome!

Not hugely keen on your girls names. Minnie is okay as a nn do you have a full name in mind or not. Don't like Violet. Nancy and Vivenne are ok.

What about Lara?

Missed Florence off. I do like it, however know loads grin

Gabriella nn Gaby or Ella

Like Violet and Vivienne. Hate Olive, sorry.

Minnie might work as nn for Miranda (though prefer Mimi)?

Love Violet and Florence. Also think the following would go well with Noah:

I all of those, except Minnie unless it's a nickname for a longer name. Think Nancy and Vivienne are my faves.

How about

Margaret nn Maggie or Daisy or Pearl
Constance (Connie)

Both Florence and Vivienne are really nice.

inaspotofbother Sat 02-Nov-13 20:57:48

Sorry meant to say I like all of those!

Isobel would go nicely with Noah too I think

I love your names. My daughter has a Minnie in her class - it's very
Cute - and violet was on my list, until I had a boy. Either is good. Minnie is also good as an adult name.

Minerva nn Minnie is lovely
Violet prefer Viola

The problem with the name minnie is that its a word alot of young children use for their vagina.

Also other children may be able to single her out easy for name calling due to minnie and mickey mouse.

I am considering Noah for dc3. My dd is Matilda nn Tilly.

I have twins called Millie and Isabel. My friend has a daughter called violet, also in their group of friends are Edie, Isla and Ava. Love all the old fashioned names coming back!

I actually liked Mathilda (Matty or Tilly as a nn) but hubby hated it! I thought Millie and Mathilda would have been so cute smile

Thanks everyone for the suggestions! Mabel was on my list too!
We liked Minnie for Minerva, I like the older fashioned names because I feel Noah is quite an old name, and you don't hear it very often! I don't want a common name but then again I don't want a modern new fandangled name like Devon, I'm glad lots of people agree with me on Minnie! I'm not into Disney so this link doesn't bother me but it's what's worrying my hubby! My lo calls the bump Minnie which is too cute! I think because we got it so right the first time who bout any effort I'm feeling massive pressure! Ha! I do like "ie" or "y" sounding names! Quite like Valerie! And Lilly but that's really popular now!
Thanks again everyone for the positive comments

Without even!

Mommafifi Sat 02-Nov-13 21:19:09

How do they pronounce Edie?

Katekate77 Sat 02-Nov-13 21:21:11

They pronounce it eeeedy. Rhymes with needy smile

Love Edie.

natandmat Sat 02-Nov-13 21:25:07

I LOVE LOVE Minnie! I also really like Florence, but I know a couple, I thinks it's fairly popular now x

Mommafifi Sat 02-Nov-13 21:25:59

Lol, thanks ;) really like that! Edie sounds very nice! We liked Reenie as well!

Mommafifi Sat 02-Nov-13 21:26:47

Yeah I hadn't heard any Florence's until I said Oo what about florence and since then I have heard 5 little girls with that name!

Katekate77 Sat 02-Nov-13 21:30:50

Reenie is cute! I went through a weird phase when I was little where I would pretend my name was Reenie...I remember despairing each time my parents used my real name confused
