I'm expecting DD2 in a month and we're really stuck for names. DD1 is Ottilie. Names we like but don't love or can't use for whatever reason are:

Aurelia
Delilah
Clementine
Matilda
Nora
Arabella

Delilah is probably my fave but I realise the name has negative connotations so not sure about it... Anyone got any other suggestions? Thanks smile

Lyla pronounced lie-la

It means 'beautiful night" in Arabic.

Matilda and Nora sound best with Ottilie. Id suggest some other pretty-sounding names but since you already chose to call a kid Ottilie Im pretty sure you dont care about how ugly a name sounds
