So this is our latest shortlist. I'm not thrilled on any of them tbh they are just the best of what we have came up with so far. Also brother and sister are Phoebe and Jacob

Penelope (Penny)

I think Poppy goes best with your other dc's names.

thorshammer Mon 23-Nov-15 22:45:04

Posted too soon.


Middle names will be Johanna Bridget

strawberrypenguin Mon 23-Nov-15 22:49:22

I'd go for Alice. Nice classic name, goes well with the middle names you have chosen and won't share her first initial with her sibling. Although tbh I like all the names on your list

I don't love any of them either, to be honest. Arianna, Alice and Polly are nice. Poppy is okay. I'm not a fan of Penelope.

I love Johannah though.

Poppy or Alice

thorshammer Mon 23-Nov-15 22:58:28

To be fair manic I don't love any of them either . They are pretty much just the best we could come up with sad

Paddletonio Mon 23-Nov-15 22:58:53

Prefer Alice

What about Eliza?

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Mon 23-Nov-15 23:07:48

Well you already have a P name so I would steer clear of Poppy and Penny because 18 years down the line. It will cause problems with the post when letters are coming to Miss P Hammer, well which one.
Pheobe or Penny/Poppy. A lot of people don't think that thorough but it can be a real head ache, so on that basis. I would say Arianna. sorry for prattling on btw

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Mon 23-Nov-15 23:11:02

Oh I didn't see youd put Alice in.
Alice Joanna Bridget. Is gorgeous. Would you not consider Bridget as a first name. It's very feminine elegant and under used.

Alice Johanna Bridget

Alice goes well. I like Poppy, but agree that another P name could lead to confusion (letters/bank accounts for Miss P Hammer?).

Not Arianna. Reminds me of the Afghan national airline Ariana....

What about Chloe, I always imagine Phoebe and a Chloe together.

I think Alice is best out of your list.

thorshammer Tue 24-Nov-15 15:34:24

Thanks for the replies.

Our phoebe is 10 so the initial thing less likely to be a problem. Plus do people still do that? I don't think I've ever seen a letter addressed to an initial? It's usually either full name or the occupier?

Anyway back to names. Alice seems to be taking the lead so far. DH will be pleased that's his suggestion.

Lozza1990 Tue 24-Nov-15 15:43:20

I like Poppy, why aren't you thrilled with any of them? Aren't there any names you love?

GothJoose Tue 24-Nov-15 15:50:10

Im not a fan of your selection but I love Phoebe. Is choose Poppy out of your selection but another name I like which I think goes nicely with Phoebe is Lydia

thorshammer Tue 24-Nov-15 15:54:45

No there really aren't any names I love Lozza sad it's stressing me right out because I settled with DSs name and on really don't want to do that agaij

thorshammer Tue 24-Nov-15 20:44:13

DH has just decided his new favourite name is Harley.

GothJoose Tue 24-Nov-15 21:26:53

I don't think Harley really goes with your other dcs names but that's not important to some people. what is important is, do you like Harley?

CakeRattleandRoll Wed 25-Nov-15 00:11:19

I really like Penelope and Arianna. I agree that having the same initial isn't likely to be much of a problem, esp with that age difference. In 18 years, people probably won't be using the post anyway!

Not sure about Harley - it's more of a boy's name to me and very different vibe to your other dc.

Really like Johanna Bridget too.

OhPillocks Wed 25-Nov-15 00:38:39

I've two DC with the same first initial but different middle name initials and it's surprising how much post they get which just uses their first initial.
Mr R Pillock and Mr R Pillock
I like all your names smile. Poppy is my favourite

Secondtimeround75 Wed 25-Nov-15 00:42:56

Penny or Alice

Not Harley shock
