Help!

DC2 is due in 5 weeks and the girls name we had picked (for over 2.5yrs since DS born) has just been used by a new friend that lives opposite us!
The name which we can't use is Lydia, middle name will be Frances, and needs to go with DS name Timothy.
I hadn't even considered other girls names this time round as it was always going to be this name, please help with some suggestions!

Thanks for suggestions - doesn't have to sound like Lydia just in the same style I guess?

I always think of Lydia and Sylvie as similar type names - Daphne, Claudia?

Just use Lydia.

You may not always live opposite them or even be friends with them.

Just use it. I'd tell your friends that it's been your chosen name for 2.5 years.

We decided on DD2 name 3 years before she was born. I wouldn't have changed it for anyone.

Bakeoffcakes Mon 02-Feb-15 22:11:03

None of these names areas nice as Lydia I am biased

I'd love to still used Lydia but we're in a fairly small community and it would be rather awkward, they'd probably end up in the same class at school!

I quite like Verity but think it would sound odd with DS being Timothy, - not sure I like both of them ending in -ee.
