Baby 3 is due in November, already have two quite plain sounding names for DS and DD, would like something different but not outrageous- any thoughts on

Mila? Aria? Nova? Isla? Alexa? Autumn (the favourite atm)

I quite like the idea of Autumn born in the Autumn.

I love autumn. Quite like Alexa and Isla, but not find of the others.

I love autumn. Wish I had a chance to use it!

Isla is dull.

Alexa is nice

Nova sounds a bit corporate.

Dislike aria.

Mila is ok.

Mila and Autumn are lovely. I know a 6 year old Autumn - it really suits her. I'm not a fan of Alexa at all. I know a toddler one, it's a bit harsh sounding.

Of the names you have listed, I only really like Alexa.

Autumn is lovely. Nova is a car.

Autumn - and Alexa are lovely, not to unusual and not ten a penny.
Nova - is awful. I use to work for Hotel Novotel.
Isla - has been done to death
Aria - Not keen.
Mila - nice.

Isla has been too popular recently for my liking.
Nova = No way
Like the rest smile

Giddymamma Mon 18-May-15 12:27:31

Mila fits in with cutesy / pretty trend, but not a name I've heard often?

Marcipex Mon 18-May-15 15:23:29

Autumn is lovely. I know a beautiful auburn-haired teenage Autumn.
Please, not Nova.

Isla - very popular but ok name, so long as your surname isn't White!
Nova - don't like
Mila - nice
Autumn - lovely
Alexa - not keen

I do like Aria. I came across it for the first time on Pretty Little Liars.

Not Nova. It's like a joke. No Va. (It doesn't work/go)
Aria is a bit to PLL inspired. Maria is nicer anyway.
Mila - no. Dislike. Seems incomplete
Autumn - I don't dislike it. It's different without being too off the wall. Maybe I like it a bit.
Alexa - not keen. Kind of harsh imo
Isla - ok. Bit bland. Another like Mila that seems like HALF a name.

Autumn is the best there.

Autumn is a nice name, not too common but not unusual.
Nova - dislike it, sounds very harsh.
Aria - sounds pretentious like an aria from an opera. Or maybe the Aria casino in Las Vegas (not that that's pretentious)
Mila - meh
Alexa - ok, reminds me of the model or the Mulberry bag (which is lovely). Might get confused with Alexia or shortened to Lex or Lexi which aren't nice
Isla - fine, very common at the moment and will date quite badly I think. I think it will be the equivalent of Amanda or similar in 30 years.

I like this post as my daughters are called Isla and autumn! I have had nothing but positives comments on autumns name on how lovely it is, it's not popular yet not unusual enough to appear odd. Her full name is autumn blossom ........, I of course love the name Isla aswell however it is quite popular now

inmyshoos Tue 19-May-15 11:30:53

Love Autumn. Nova was my first car! Like Isla too but very popular now. No feeling about the others other than not sure about pronounciation of Mila and Aria. Mila sounds like a skin condition sorry blush

LouisaB1990 Wed 20-May-15 17:27:19

Love love love Alexa. It's beautiful & it's classy for when she becomes a woman
Suggestions sorry don't think you asked
Darcy
Briana
Leonie
Madelyn
Taya

Personally I love both Alexa and Autumn- but only if baby is actually born in Autumn!
I also like Alexia, for a spin off Alexa
Mila?
Not to keen on this, sounds a bit character-like for me.
Aria?
Love this, but like the spelling Arya more (I know, I know, that is a character)
Nova?
Not sure on this one, very unique for sure.
Isla?
Not very unusual IMO, I know a few Islas.

Love Autumn and Alexa.
really don't like Nova.
Isla is nice but there are soooo many of them. It's definitely not 'different'.
Mila and Aria - ok but they sound quite trendy to me. Not sure they will date well.

Autumn - this is okay
Alexa - Alexandra is nicer but thats just my personal opinion
Mila - cute, not very "strong" but pleasant sounding
Aria - too fairy-ish, not a strong name at all... sounds like a girl who'd blow away in a stiff breeze
Nova - I think this one is okay too, though others seem to disagree. Not many Novas around, though it does sound a bit "goth" to me
Isla - too common and really not even that nice

Love Autumn for a baby born in the colder months. What about Noelle, Holly, Robin if she's late and arrives in December?
Going by names you've suggested, how about Naomi or Orla?

LeoandBoosmum Fri 22-May-15 17:53:17

I also love Camille (pronounced Cammy ie French sound)

I love Seren (Welsh for star)

Also, Alexa is nice, as is Thea. Isla is too common now.
