Shortlist is as follows:


but i'm feeling like 'the name' isn't on there yet iykwim. Any suggestions?

I'm 30wks pg with DD2...names starting with 'm' ruled out as that's DD1 is Melody. So something that 'goes' with Melody would be nice too.

Fire away!

I love those names particularly Claudia and Sadie.

Hmm. They're very different names, in my view, and also different in 'feel' from Melody.

Melody and... Sorrel? Tamsin? Kerenza? Seren?

ohmymimi Mon 18-Nov-13 14:02:59

PS - but I like Claudia and Stella, too.

Melody and Sadie go well, Melody and Claudia, yes maybe but not Melody and Stella.

I love Claudia! It's just the frequency with which it keeps coming up on these boards is worrying me somewhat. I really want to have a 'less common' name....I know names being top whatever doesn't bother some people but it does bother me!

I don't think they go with your dd name I like the suggestion of Tessa that works far better

DawnOfTheDee Mon 18-Nov-13 14:05:10

Love poo poo'd by DH.

Lancelottie Mon 18-Nov-13 14:06:33

Cordelia or Cecilia?

DawnOfTheDee Mon 18-Nov-13 14:12:26

Like Cecilia smile

Is Tessa short for something?

floatyflo Mon 18-Nov-13 14:17:04

Out of those I like Claudia the best.
Sadie is Ok.
Stella reminds me of the lager!

Love Cecilia, especially nn'ed to Cece. Lovely.

DinkyMole Mon 18-Nov-13 14:20:06

Harmony of course wink

DawnOfTheDee Mon 18-Nov-13 14:37:51

Thank you DinkyMole - you make it exactly eleventymillion people who have suggested Harmony to me. Argh! wink

I like Cece as a nn too loads more than Cecilia actually but i'm not keen on nn's on the birth certificate.

floatyflo Mon 18-Nov-13 15:14:08

Same here. I would have to give her Cecilia/Celia as a full name, just so I could call her Cece. That way at least she would have a more 'grown up' option ifyswim.

Lorna? Grace?

scripsi Mon 18-Nov-13 15:19:03

Calypso (though perhaps too music-related)

Allegra would be beautiful

I love Tessa as well. I even accidentally called my DD Tessa one day by accident. Not sure why it popped out. I think she would have suited the name!

SteeleyeStan Mon 18-Nov-13 18:44:51

I think Tessa is often short for Theresa.

Tasha? (Natasha)

I've yet to meet a little Claudia myself.

ohmymimi Mon 18-Nov-13 18:48:52

Dawn - Drat!sad

I think I really like Sadie, it's on my list. I struggle to picture baby Sadie and think some people might at first think it's awful but I think it's a great name for a toddler up and have images of a cute little Sadie in wellies running round in the garden!

RubySparks Mon 18-Nov-13 18:53:15

Here is a name I will never be able to use but wish I had heard it years ago when naming DD. I would so love to have known about it then....


DawnOfTheDee Mon 18-Nov-13 19:29:18

I think you've hit the nail on the head Caip - toddler Sadie I can see, teenager Sadie I can see and grown up Sadie I can's just the baby bit. But I do think it's a cool name.

Not sure how I feel about Valda but props for coming up with a name I've never heard of before and I've looked in ALL the books
