Well I don't like Astrid I ADORE it, but just for fun would like other girl suggestions (they don't necessarily have to have a scandi/Germanic feel, just a similar quirkiness)

To give you more if an idea of my taste, I have a ds called Eli and other boys names I love are, Arlo, Asa, Ezra, Cassius, Kit, Rex!

Thanks in advance!

Oh god how embarrassing, that obviously should be Astrid in the title not Atrid blush

Olive is what we will be calling this one if she is a DD2.

I have an Astrid. I love, love, love her name. DD2 will be Esmeralda. I also like Alba.

I know an asta, is that similar?

I'm rubbish at baby names, I read this by accident!

trufflehunterthebadger Sun 09-Mar-14 22:53:07

how about Birke ?

trufflehunterthebadger Sun 09-Mar-14 22:53:48

although I think that might be too German for a non-germanic family to get away with. Doerthe is nice as well

GlaikitFizzog Sun 09-Mar-14 22:56:26

Brigita
Lisle
Martha
Gretle and the other Von trapp!!(I can picture her, but forget her name, this will drive me mad!)

Breda
Ilze
Katya
Lucinda

GlaikitFizzog Sun 09-Mar-14 22:58:05

Louisa!!!

Elsa

cafecito Sun 09-Mar-14 22:59:27

I love love love the name Astrid and considered it for my nearly here 3rd daughter.

I don't think I have a 'type' of name that I love really so the other names I love many not help a fellow lover of Astrid at all. But, for what it's worth, these are my (current - I'm fickle!) favourite names:

Arabella, Amy, Avery, Amberley, Anya, Ayla, Alexis, Charlotte, Cerys, Christabel, Cassidy, Eden, Enya, Felicity, Francesca, Gabriella, Giovanna, Genevieve, Georgina, Giselle, Genesis, Hannah, Hayley, Isabella, Imogen, Isis, Jessica, Juliette, Kendall, Matilda, Miranda, Madeleine, Mika, Mila, Nicole, Natasha, Naomi, Octavia, Rebecca, Rhiannon, Sadie, Savannah, Susannah, Thea, Xanthe, Zara, Zia.
