hello
I have a three year old DD Nancy and am looking for girl / boy names to go with it - grateful for any all suggestions - it seems hard to match - and I didn't think about matching when i chose her name!
Thank you!

Why do the names need to 'match'?!

Just choose another name YOU love!

Names I like include Alexander, Quentin, Dominic, Clara, Florence but you may have different taste smile.

Oh Donkeys got there before me with the Hallam! You don't normally see it much here but I love it.

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Thu 06-Feb-14 13:04:22

smile I think Hal is great but thought Hallam might be the full name?

Hal is such a cool nickname Donkeys. Love it!

There was a Hallam in the Upstairs Downstairs remake, that's where it caught my attention.

pennyapples Thu 06-Feb-14 13:53:24

Think Hallam is rather cool but tend to think of the university for some reason...

Think I might love Harriet! Does it work for a baby?

pennyapples Thu 06-Feb-14 13:54:32

Could you have Hettie as a nickname? Always liked that nn and never been sure what it's short for

Innogen Thu 06-Feb-14 15:29:36

Hettie is a perfect nickname for Harriet. Its such a good choice. Harriet and Nancy have gone together in my head for yearssssssssss. LOVE THEM!

squoosh Thu 06-Feb-14 15:32:11

I think all the names listed are nicer than Harriet.

Bowlersarm Thu 06-Feb-14 15:38:14

I think Hettie is traditionally short for henrietta.

Tessa

Or

Heidi

They don't have to go together. I've never really understood this - once they're not children any more, they won't solely be referenced by their sibling. Many people in their future lives may not even know they have a sibling. Just choose a name you love.

Agree Harriet is lovely think Hattie is nicer than Hettie.
