Hello I'm 40wks + 4days so excitedly awaiting the arrival of our second little one. We didn't find out baby's sex. We have a boys name picked out (Jacob) however we're struggling with a girls name? This is the list we have so far and tbh I like them all ha ha. I wondered what people's thoughts are please?


Thank you!

I'm not keen on violet or Evelyn personally, but they're not terrible. Of those choices, I like tabitha or philippa the best. Either sounds ok for cute little girls/high court judges, there are nice nicknames etc.

I sometimes think it's a good idea to have a short list and see which seems to suit the baby best once they arrive?

I like Philippa Tabitha and Georgia.

Have you thought about the short forms and whether you like them?

I don't like Violet or Evelyn. Eleanor has been popular for a long time and also with Elle/Ellie diminutives.

Other suggestions:

I like Violet and Georgia best, they are strong names. Tabitha and Phillipha are nice names but I personally find them a bit too fussy and girly. Evelyn is pretty too, I like the nicknames even better, Evie etc.

I like Georgia best too.

Bucking the trend and saying that Violet is the best. I love all V names.

Violet - like
Philippa - like (and Pip/Pippa are nice nns)
Evelyn - not keen on unisex names
Tabitha - lovely, and goes brilliantly with Jacob if complementing future siblings is a consideration.
Georgia - OK (prefer Georgina)
Eleanor - like

My name is on that list and although as a child it was difficult for littlest to spell , it is true that it is good for grown ups and children and has lots of shortened forms , and I love it now.

My favourites are Violet and Eleanor though.

Violet - dislike. Very trendy at the mo.
Philippe - q nice.
Evelyn - great name if not shortened to the one of many billion Evie's.
Tabitha - dislike. Too little girly.
Georgia - prefer Georgina.
Eleanor - lovely, classy. Again if not shortened to Ellie or Ella.

Violet - love
Philippa - strongly dislike, also Pippa has all kinds of filthy meanings in many languages
Evelyn - like but only if pronounced evva-lin
Tabitha - love
Georgia - like
Eleanor - ugh, hate this name.

Love Violet and Tabitha. Think Evelyn is a little too old sounding. Georgia and Eleanor have been out for sometime. Tabitha-Violet sounds lovely. Violet is not one i have ever thought about, but now im thinking how pretty it sounds. x
