Hello Comments / opinions on our shortlist please Also any further suggestions based on the kind of names we like? Flora Cora Annabel, nickname Bel Mila Marla Alana Carey Names we like but can't use: Iris - our surname starts with S Nancy - c sound clashes with surname Thanks so much in advance!
Thanks for the feedback! I like Juliet and Vivienne but DH is a bit meh about them. Others are nice names but nothing jumps out. We can't really have anything with a 'th' sound in the first name as it appears in our surname and would just be too much of a mouthful. Keep the suggestions coming, really helpful!
Ooh some lovely suggestions there. Anya has been on and off the list a fair bit and I do like Lara but we have a Luke already and therefore would be a bit close to Star Wars! Carla is a sweet name but feels a bit dated to me. Clara I like but something is holding me back there Take your point Through about a possible nickname for Flora..
Flora - it's ok. Would probably use Florence and shorten. Cora - it's ok. Much prefer Cara Annabel, nickname Bel - really like Annabel but not Bel. Mila - love it Marla - love it but have only come across it spelled Mala which I like even better (poss only because it's the name of one of my best friends though!) Alana - really like it Carey - never come across. I don't think I'm keen.
I like Orla and Lana, thanks will add to my list. Bel doesn't seem to be a popular nn for annabel. Is it the spelling (does Belle have a nicer look to it?) or we quite like Annie, any opinions on that?
