Girls names - feeling down!

(33 Posts)
MrsRV Wed 05-Feb-14 13:22:22

it's ridiculous I know but this name business - or lack of a name is starting to get me down. So far, DD2 has been the following:-

Amy
Brooke
Holly
Ruby
Amelia
Amelie

DD1 is Ella Rose.

names liked but can't use :- Emily, Abigail, Sophie, Jessica, Mia, Scarlett.

surname ends "sie" so Elsie loved but out due to DD1 & surname rhyming!!

HELP HELP HELP.

How long have you got? Don't panic!

I like Amelie, Holly but prefer Amelia spelt 'Emilia' ... but that may be too close to Emily or you may not want another E name?

How about

Freya
Olivia
Isabelle

?

MrsRV Wed 05-Feb-14 14:10:43

have got a while yet so live in hope perfect name will become apparent!

don't like Olivia, know loads!
Freya - yes good suggestion have text hubby :-)
Isobelle - Belle/Bella to close to Ella. Issy/Izzy not good with surname because of the "sie"?

Freya's nice, will see what Mr Fussy says grin

soontobeslender thanks... can't have Megan. Like Laurel but DH doesn't which is a real shame. Alice is lovely but reminds DH of the god awful song with a swear word in it. BECAUSE HE'S CLEARLY GOT THE MENTALITY OF A CHAV. Alicia... now, how is this pronounced? saw another thread along the same lines as this - is it Alicia as in "a-lise-ea" or "a-liss-ea"???

I think you can go for A leesha or A liss ia or indeed A lees-ea but then I'm Scottish so my pronunciations may be entirely different grin

Lorelei
Ramona
Shannon

From your list I love Ruby and think Ella and Ruby make very cute sibling names. How about...

Ivy (love this and wish I could use it)
Molly (personally prefer this to Holly)
Daisy or Maisie (may not work with surname)
Imogen

All lovely names, except Brooke.

Think Ruby would sound good with Ella.

How about Violet?

Heathcliff27 Wed 05-Feb-14 16:40:34

How about Grace?

MrsRV Wed 05-Feb-14 16:43:25

Ruby used to be our absolute fave. until we learnt of a few Ellie & Ruby sister combos locally... and for DH, until a Ruby made quite a meal of DD's face with her nails shock

now, Loreili I love. not sure if I can spell it!!! :-) Hubby will hate it as its just too different.

Molly is a dog in the family. No go.

MrsRV Wed 05-Feb-14 16:44:56

hold on, Lorelei - is this Laurel-ee or Laur-ay-lee?

BetterWithCheese Wed 05-Feb-14 16:47:30

Anya
Ivy
Imogen
Lila

BetterWithCheese Wed 05-Feb-14 16:48:56

Actually I think it's Laura-lie or at least it is on Gilmore Girls.

Wombmates Wed 05-Feb-14 17:50:44

If you like Isobel but the Izzy nn doesn't work, then consider the nn Ibby - my dneice's nickname. smile

Other names:

Cecily
Alice
Frances
Megan

Oh MrsRV I so hope you find "the one" I understand the stress!

MrsRV Wed 05-Feb-14 22:18:37

it's just really pissing me off. I'm a bit of a control freak and just like to be organised... I'm just not a "wait and see" kind of person!!

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Wed 05-Feb-14 23:14:09

I always thought it was Lorra-lie but recently heard someone refer to Lorra-lay.

How about Anna or Hannah?

Did DH like Freya?

Viviennemary Wed 05-Feb-14 23:20:57

I like Amelia best from your list. From the other names suggested I like Alice, Isobel and Violet. Ivy is nice too.

DH didn't completely turn his nose up to Freya! progress. grin

it wouldn't be half as difficult without DH's involvement :-)

Lorelei is pronounced Lorra-lie (like 'lie down'). It's German, I think she was some sort of siren who tempted German sailors to run aground on the Rhine? Maybe I made that up. There's definitely a song about her though (in German). It's a beautiful name.

My favourite on your list is Holly love it I also like Amy. Ameilia is nice but I just know so many .
