We've just had our 20wk scan and found out we are having a second girl. So the search for a name is on.... Our dd1 is Alice May. I'd love to hear your ideas for her sister.

Our very rough, first pass at a list is: Rose, Orla, Hannah, Rebecca, Harriet, Naomi, Thea, Kate, Imogen, Matilda, Iona. But very open to new ideas or suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

Lots of nice names. Other suggestions: Alice and Martha? Alice and Isabel?

I have a dd Alice May too! She has two younger brothers but had we had another dd we would have chosen Naomi. Like Alice it is classic and not too popular. Also has 3 vowels and 2 consonants! Seems that lots of others think it goes with Alice too! I also liked Jemima.

MammySam Wed 12-Nov-14 22:37:23

Ooh congratulations!

How about Evie? Evie is what I'd like for my DD2 but DH doesn't like it at all so I'm out of luck sad

Another one I like is Maisie, very pretty! Unfortunately I'm out of luck with that one too so you are welcome to have those names!! Hehe!!

Our EDDs must be similar as my 20 wk scan was 11th Nov smile

I was going to write pretty much manic's suggestions smile great minds I do think in particular Alice and Charlotte, Alice and Georgia, Alice and Lydia have a good flow and 'go' together style wise. I would have suggested Harriet If it wasn't already on your list its lovely

Thanks everyone. Some great suggestions here. mammysam I guess we are due close together - I'm on April Fool's Day! peacy - how sweet that you have an Alice May as well. The May was a late addition becuase my DGF passed away a few days before DD1 was born and that was his mother's name. But I really like it! I'm intrigued to know what you went for with your DSs...

bouncingbelle Thu 13-Nov-14 21:43:21

I was going to suggest Naomi Rose before I read your list! So that smile

bouncingbelle Thu 13-Nov-14 21:43:46

Or Phoebe?

peacypops Thu 13-Nov-14 22:21:07

We chose May after my GM who is no longer with us. DSs are Isaac and Robin smile

MammySam Thu 13-Nov-14 22:27:32

Yes we are close together, I'm 28th March! smile

dimdommilpot Thu 13-Nov-14 23:18:11

The Alice i know has a sister called Amber. My DD2 is Lydia and i wanted Alys as her middle name so i think they go well smile

Lovely names!!

Rose- gorgeous, goes well with Alice
Orla- gorgeous
Hannah- objectively nice but this is my irrational hate name sorry!
Rebecca- lovely and have been considering this also. Under-used
Harriet- Goes very nicely with Alice
Naomi- totally different class of name imo, nice but wrong with Alice
Thea- bit faddy/will date unlike Alice which is more traditional
Kate- Beautiful and simple, like Alice!
Imogen- oK
Matilda- Meh, not special
Iona- dislike, wouldn't know how to pronounce it sorry. Try hard.

Favourites with Alice are:

Alice and Kate
Alice and Rose
Alice and Rebecca
Alice and Harriet

MummyBeerest Fri 14-Nov-14 01:20:31

Alice and Kate or Alice and Rose sound beautiful. Congratulations!

Here's some more suggestions: Abigail, Ella, Lucy, Rosa, Tessa, Madeleine.
