I have two girls already and really love their names. I am expecting no.3 (sex unknown) in November and am struggling with girls names.

I have already a Sally and a Clara.
I like Eliza, Esther, Martha, Lydia, Jessica. Would prefer to avoid names beginning with R. Any ideas?

Like all those names but my favourite is Eliza

I like Lydia the most out of those.

The others are trendy old lady names to me.

I like the P&P Lydia connection.

Lydia or Jessica from your list.

How about Tamsin or Belinda?

BlueChampagne Thu 17-Jul-14 12:50:37

Or Juliet?

Alice, Jemima, Esme, Louisa, Hannah, Sylvie?

Out of those I like Eliza best. smile I love the name Elizabeth and Eliza is a great nickname, or even on its own! x

Mm I do like Eliza but am scottish and lots of people say aliza rather than Eliza and that bothers me. Martha standing out more currently although like Tamsin too.

I like all your list apart from Jessica. My favourite is probably Esther.

What about Etta or Iris?

Not as keen on Martha. My fave is Lydia.

In order of preference I would say



I wouldn't choose Martha with Clara, though I love both.

Would you consider Elizabeth/Beth, rather than Eliza? Think it works better.

Your DDs names are gorgeous, I love Sally and Clara!

Eliza is very pretty, as is Lydia. Elise perhaps if you are concerned about it being pronounced Aliza?

I'd go with Esther to avoid having the same sound ending as one of the other names. So many end in y or a.

Lydia is lovely! I taught a 5 year-old Lydia a couple of years ago, and it was GORGEOUS on her!

But I went through a Martha phase - it is so soft and gentle and pretty and underused.

All your names are very lovely though!

Esther is a wonderful name! love it! in my top list for not Penelope, Luna, Evangeline. Ava/Eva/Eve, Gwendoline, Persephone
