DD2 was born 3 days ago and still has no name as DH and I can't agree!
I like - Polly or Matilda
DH likes - Molly or Zara

DD1 is Amber.
What are your thoughts?

I like Molly or Matilda.

I think Zara works best with Amber.

My personal favourite would be Zara, but you have to find something you both like. Polly and Molly are pretty similar. Maybe Holly? Or something with nn Olly - Olivia/Olwen/Olga?

Not keen on Molly and Polly so I'd narrow ot down to Matilda or Zara.

Similar but maybe middle ground:


Sisters of Ambers I know:

Zara is fab.

Molly & polly are a bit twee & matilda is very popular.

Sadie, Heidi or Faith sound lovely with Amber too.

I like Molly & Matilda best

Molly is actually more popular than Matilda according to most recent ONS statistics.

I love Polly and Matilda most out of your names and Matilda would be a good compromise if DH liked any of the nicknames. The others don't lend themselves so well to shortenings.

Zara is my favourite with sister Amber

ashesandfire Mon 15-Jun-15 18:03:59

Matilda is my favourite but I think Zara sounds best with Amber

juneau Mon 15-Jun-15 18:07:31

Yep - I'd go for Zara.

Agree with this: Molly & polly are a bit twee & matilda is very popular.

I absolutely adore Polly. It's in my girls name list at the top. Not common, not pretentious, not out there, suits any age.

Lunastarfish Mon 15-Jun-15 18:10:57

If you both like Polly/Molly would you/DP consider Matilda shortened to Tilly - it's a similar vibe.

That said, I think Zara works rather well with Amber

Cloggal Mon 15-Jun-15 18:21:50

Zara is best with Amber, but surely you can toss a coin on Molly/Polly? So similar, each of you loves one...

Zoe is a great suggestion, really love that

Thanks all. Consensus seems to be that zara works best with amber, but I do have reservations about the whole high street shop issue. Is that what people are going to think of when I say her name?

manicinsomniac Mon 15-Jun-15 20:32:42

I love Matilda and Zara.

I wouldn't worry about the shop at all. My first association with Zara is Phillips, actually.

Lunastarfish Mon 15-Jun-15 20:35:00

The name Zara was week established enough in the UK that I wouldn't think of the shop. My friend has a 10 year old Zara and I don't think it's been a problem

timelyreminder Mon 15-Jun-15 20:49:56

Zara, definitely.

BreadmakerFan Mon 15-Jun-15 20:56:19

Explain the names going together. It sounds a ridiculous pressure.

Zara is lovely.

LettuceLaughton Mon 15-Jun-15 20:56:40

I think she should be called Evelyn or Hazel. Don't ask me whyconfused

MitzyLeFrouf Mon 15-Jun-15 21:03:31

Zara and Amber are both pretty and modern names. They sound sound like a pair of cool sisters!

HainaultViaNewburyPark Mon 15-Jun-15 21:08:20

Lettuce - you have impeccable taste in names. My DD is called Evelyn, and DS would have been Hazel if he'd been a girl. <off the point>

I like Zara more than Polly/Molly/Matilda.

SanityClause Mon 15-Jun-15 21:10:51

Polly , Molly and Matilda are all quite popular, at the moment. Zara is less so, and I agree it does seem to fit better with Amber.

StGodolphin Mon 15-Jun-15 21:12:49

Pippa instead perhaps?

Purplehonesty Mon 15-Jun-15 21:46:56

Amber and molly or Amber and Zara.

But I like molly the best.

sweetpeame Mon 15-Jun-15 22:34:36

Zara. Not so keen on the others.
