Gilly! Elcs is 11th April! How are you? When are you due?!

There's a jasmine in my family and Lucia is too close to my name! My fav is Alissia but dp's being an arse and saying no.

They are lovely names but very popular which is why you probably know people who have had them recently.

Perhaps a few alternatives:

Iona
Isis
Annelise
Charlotte
Macy
Rebecca
Eleanor

Forgot to say, dp has vetoed flower names, and "abstract nouns" ha i.e. Hope, Grace.

I like feminine, current yet timeless, "ie" and "ia" endings.

Not fussy are we?

Why can't you use some if the names you have listed? Unless it is immediate family, I don't think you should just discount names because they have been used by someone else.

Tea1Sugar Sat 01-Feb-14 18:18:32

Pretty close friends and one name is cousin's daughter.

Oriunda Sat 01-Feb-14 18:18:56

If you like Alissia, what about Alessia?
Amelia .... Emilia?
Isla .... Iona or Isabella?
Lottie .... Charlotte or Carlotta (could then have Lottie as nn) or
Leticia with Letty as nn?
Maisie .... Macy? Milly?
Ella ...... Eleanor? Fenella? Would still give you desired name as nn

How about Eliana? Girl's name in my dd's class - I think it's lovely

GillyBillyWilly Sat 01-Feb-14 18:19:37

Tea! I'm good... Due 2nd June. Decided not to find out the gender.

What about Olivia? Goes nicely with Chloe smile

Clargo55 Sat 01-Feb-14 18:19:47

Would Elia work with surname?
