I like these names but don't love any of them as much as I love DS's name. Middle name will be Ivy after my granny.

Meredith
Beatrix
Calista
Talitha

Any thoughts or similar suggestions? I prefer names that can be shortened. Thanks!

I like Beatrix and Meredith. What would you shortened them to?

Meredith is the only one I like to be honest, and I love it!

Meredith is pretty - I also like Merrion.

Calista is nice although makes me think of Calista Flockhart (but that's no bad thing as I loved Ally McBeal!!).

Yes Meredith is lovely, don't like the others.

I have a personal campaign to have more girls christened Aurelia, I REALLY love the name.
but of your list I really like Meredith, I see a happy person known as Merry for short who skips through life with a smile (no pressure or anything, please ignore the teenage years)

Beatrix is lovely, Bebe or Bea if you want to shorten.

Don't like Callista much.
Meredith and Beatrix are both pretty.
I prefer tabitha to talitha.

SimplySara Sun 09-Mar-14 21:02:14

I really like Talitha, it is so much better than Tabitha.

The other names are also nice, I really like Meredith but not a fan of the name Merry (which is basically just Mary as nn are usually just said not written)

I like Meredith.

It would be Bea or Bebe and Meri/Merry - TBH I prefer Meredith and DH prefers Beatrix!

Beatrix is lovely! Possibly tabitha rather than talitha? Can imagine it benign misheard a lot which may get annoying. Also Merry is a super cute nickname.

TessRA Tue 11-Mar-14 21:16:56

Oh dear it must be me but I find all those names really dull or frumpy other than Tabitha which is gorgeous and would have been a contender had I had a girl.

Love Meredith & Beatrix

Other suggestions:
Adelaide
Marianne
Francesca
Ramona
Romilly
Lorelei

Coraline

Beatrix is lovel especially with the nn Bee

hubbahubster Wed 12-Mar-14 14:38:47

Tabitha sounds like a cat's name to me…

soontobeslendergirl Wed 12-Mar-14 14:57:50

I'd add Marissa - Meredith is probably my favourite.

Aurelia sounds like a body part to me grin

BananaHammocks Wed 12-Mar-14 18:33:15

Dunwhingin I would love to help your campaign and call my girl Aurelia, my problem with it is that it seems to be pronounces approximately 9 different ways! Ow-raylia, Or-eelia, uh-rellia?????

Am I the only one who automatically thinks Meredith Kercher? I don't know any other Merediths so it's the first thing I think.

nicelyneurotic Thu 13-Mar-14 22:47:10

I love Calista! Beautiful. I like Tabitha but not Talitha.
I know a little Meredith but am not a fan of the name.

PolyesterBride Thu 13-Mar-14 22:53:00

Beatrix is nice and Meredith is ok too.

The others are a bit chavvy I think (sorry if that sounds bad)
