What is your all time favourite girls name that you didn't use.

Artemis. Really wish I had. I can't for any future DD's as if it was shortened to Arty it's very very close to the short version of DD1's name. (So close that it would sound ridiculous interdicting them together).

Actually, my all time favourite name is Hermione but then Harry Porter happened..

*introducing, not interdicting!

Ds1 would have been Elsa (before Frozen ruined it), and DS2 would have been Holly.

I'd love a little Enid but DH wouldn't allow it with DD, we then got a DS and it didn't suit him so we have a dolly called Enid!

Ella and Martha.

They didn't suit either of my girls and then I had a boy.

So many....

But I think it would have to be Christabel

Tabitha and Clara. Am very happy with our final choice but I loved those two names as well.

I loved Scarlett when I was expecting DS1 and again for DS2.

Cressida. It clashes with our surname. I also love Celestine - same problem with that one too!
We nearly called DD2 Astrid - that's still on the list if we ever had a DD3.

Daphne, Zinnia, Dorothy, Rosanna, Joanna, Louisa, Suzannah.

Also Constance - it makes a movie title when combined with my surname

I still regret not being brave enough to use it, instead I went for something far more popular and she's destined to always be one of 3 in her class.

If I had my way DD would have been Cecily Poppy but DH hates Cecily
So she is Poppy.
DS would have been Thea.
Alas I shall have no more babies so Cecily and Thea will sadly never be used by me

Coralie. Rosa. Clementine. Charity.

Blake, Harley, Aria, Sam (Samantha)
I have other names i like and may yet have another DD but DP has vetoed all these sad

Erin, Scarlett, Ella, Emma.

I have 3 girls but these names didn't make the cut. I do still love them though and secretly think that dd3 would have really suited the name Erin.
