Silent lurker for about three months, but never posted before.

Four days ago I gave birth to our gorgeous DD. She really is a glorious little babe! Inbetween waiting for the whole world to fall out of my fanjo, for, despite the 12 stitches that feels like what is going to happen, salt baths and twice hourly breastfeeding sessions, we need to think of a name for our beautiful girl.

From 21 weeks, we thought I was giving birth to a Thea Eloise, but she is definitely not. Neither is she a Romilly Alice. Or a Madeleine. Ditto Phoebe. confused

She is however, a glorious little babe, have I mentioned that already? All pouty lips, button nose, dark hair and big blue eyes. swoon And despite being a breast milk ninja, she has stolen our hearts already.

I have a strong suspicion she could be a Polly Alice, but DP is concerned that mil some people may think its a silly, indulgent name. (Not mil bashing, for the most part, she is great, but a dreadful snob!)

So, what I need from you are your best suggestions for a beautifully vintage, old fashioned or even slightly twee name. Out of the top twenty would be the ideal remit, but not a deal breaker.

Thank you so much in advance smile

Congratulations! So glad you went with your first loved name.

We have an 18 mo Eloise, she has had a completely unrelated nn till now (like your "Button") and is just about growing into Eloise now.

I've just stumbled upon this lovely thread!

Your dd is a very lucky little girl to have parents who obviously adore her.

Her name is beautiful.

I cannot see her photo - it's not public apparently, but I have an image of you all in my head - the perfect little family all off to sleep for 5 (+) hours.

My 14 year old has just reluctantly brought her phone down.

Enjoy the innocence.

She is lovely.

ExitPursuedByABear Wed 14-May-14 22:08:15

Your DD of course.

Maybe number 2 can be Cecily!
Well done, gorgeous name
