Hi all. So after two boys and sure the third was a boy, it's a girl. Id like to get a list of at least five names. So far we have Harriet. It's simply, classic, not usual but not commonly used. Help! What can you suggest that is along the same lines? We've become a bit stuck.

Along the same lines to me as Harriet are:

Georgia
Olivia
Jessica
Lydia
Bianca
Flora
Eliza
Charlotte

Do you like Harriet because it's not too 'frilly' sounding?
Other names that don't end with a vowel sound, ie,ia might interest you,
Violet, Juliet, Scarlet, Bernadette, Charlotte, Megan, Robin, Lauren, Vivian

Henrietta, nn Hettie.

..suddenly realised they are all coming out as feminine versions of well known boys names... moving away from those:

Elizabeth (Beth)
Catherine (Kitty)
Mary
Anne
Abigail
Jennifer
Lucinda

..love Harriet though!

We have a Harriet and it's still quite uncommon where we are. There is only one other in her secondary school. She's Harry to her peers and her younger siblings but Harriet to us. She detests Hettie.

What about
Charlotte
Georgia
Josephine
Francesca
Alice
Anna

Beatrice
Matilda
Martha

Harriet is a great name.

Similar I'd imagine would be Beatrice/Beatrix, Matilda, Margaret (to me anyway)
