Baby girl is currently 4 days overdue, need to settle on a name!

We like:


Probably with Ivy as a middle name, and she has an older sister Jemima Rose.

Thoughts on the above, and suggestions for alternatives?

Love love love Adelaide!

Thanks Hormonal - it's a late addition to the shortlist but then again, so was Jemima

My favourite is Abigail.

I like Matilda best but I do know 3 little ones born in the last year. Adelaide is also lovely

I love Adelaide and Matilda. In comparison Abigail is a bit dull. Would you shorten Adelaide (Ada?) and Matilda (Tilly, Tilda, Milly, Mattie?).

I love Matilda, then Abigail. I'm not keen on Adelaide. Good luck.

Please chose Adelaide, it's beautiful smile

Abigail, definitely.

Love Adelaide

Adelaide! It goes very well with Jemima too.

Adelaide, definitely.

Adelaide, lovely. Unusual, too.

Thanks for the feedback!

Oh has since decided he's gone off Adelaide hmm

Lunastarfish Mon 02-Nov-15 12:30:40

Jemima is fab. I'd choose Adelaide but probably not with Ivy as since Adelaide is also a place it makes her name sound like a type of Ivy

IoraRua Mon 02-Nov-15 12:52:28

Abigail. Matilda is fine but more popular ime.

WednesdayRebel Mon 02-Nov-15 19:59:30

We're in Australia and Matilda is definitely less common here.

I think OH has gone off Adelaide because it's a bit too much like a place rather than a name.

I LOVE Adelaide. Although I'm not sure it goes well with Ivy as mn.

CharmingChampignon Mon 02-Nov-15 23:53:36

I wouldn't use Adelaide if you're living in Oz as people will more naturally think of it as a place name IMO.

I'd definitely go for Matilda - and I love Jemima!

Jemima is my favourite girl's name at the minute. I'm not sure any of your 3 possibles quite live up to it. I do like Matilda, but know quite a few. I would pick it out of your 3, especially as its not as popular over there.
I also like Elizabeth, Annie, Verity, Cecilia and Angharad, though probably not enough to use them. I always struggled to think of girl's names, so it's just as well I only have boys smile

Dislike Adalaide . Matilda Ivy is lovely!
