Girls names I might like?

DH and I really like Wren for a girl. But wonder if there are any other better names we may like instead as want to keep an open mind! DH is worried that although we like Wren, it may be a bit too unusual.

We have a three syllable surname that is traditionally English, so we would like a short first name. Anything ending in "ie" or "y" sounds is a no.

Any other names we might like? I like names that have some sort of link with nature, e.g. meaning is flowers, trees etc. Not keen on 'out there' names like River or Rain, or any names beginning with an X, Y or Z.

Thanks for your help!

Erin? Similar sounding.

I love Wren. I sound a bit lispy sometimes, so can't use it.

Erin would be a goer except family dog called Erin, so that could be awkward!!

Merryn, nn merrie, is lovely. It's on my list for our next dd if I can talk DH into a third.

Robyn is so lovely.

Wren is lovely. Lauren would be an option for a longer version if that's what you want to do.

I like Sky or Skye too as nature names.

Robyn, Jay, Blue are all bird type names.

Ooh, hazel is good. Is she likely to have hazel eyes?

WantToGoingTo Sun 28-Dec-14 21:49:08

Unfortunately not! DH has green eyes and i have blue eyes.

Deerhound Sun 28-Dec-14 22:51:52

It's still good!

Hazel Wren = v sweet.
