We have an Oliver smile he's sometimes Ollie...
Our list at the moment:
Francesca (I am a bit put off at the NNs)

If these, I think Francesca, Rosa, Louisa and Isabella are lovely.

I'd rule out Ellen, Ella and Lillian as too many 'l's in combination with Ollie.

I'd see Rosie as a nn for Rosa. And wouldn't go for Eden as I don't like boys names on girls. Not wild about Madison either as it's too surnamey for me, but a perfectly good name if that's your style.

I am 31+5 with our first and we are really struggling for names. Some of the girls names we have are:
Emily, Millie, Willow, Gracie, Abigail, Abby and Nina.

It's so difficult to choose one.

My favourites are Eden, Ella and Louisa
I'm with you on the NNs for Francesca and unfortunately you really can't control that especially when she starts school
The only ones I don't like are Darcy, Ellen and Lilian

Georgeofthejungle I like your choices and yes, it's so hard!

I do love Eden and that would be her name, I really like the NN Edie too, but DH is a bit meh about it, grrr!

Rosa, Louisa and Lilian are the three I like best from your list, in that order. Have you considered Lilias as well as Lilian? I think Lilian/Lilias work well with Oliver, as long as you don't plan on using Lily as a NN - Ollie and Lily might be a bit similar sounding.

My favourites from your list are Rosa / Rosie and Eden.

My favourite (this 10 minutes) is Gracie but my partner is a bit meh too. Would be so much easier if I could just ignore him grin My midwife gave me a tip. She said that in the 10 minutes following you giving birth your partner will think you are the most amazing person in the world and will give you anything so if you really like a name tell him you want it at that point and he will agree with you! She said it can work with mostly anything. flowerschocolate 😀

Darcy, Isabella and Francesca appeared on my list but my partner dismissed them too. I love Darcy. I imagine her to be a real little lady 😊

Ellen, Rosa or Louisa!

Rosa with middle name Lilian is lovely

ashesandfire Mon 28-Dec-15 15:22:07

Louisa, Francesca or Rosa for me, in that order. If I had a Francesca I would nickname her Chessie.

Lou Lou aka maddie Lou Lou

Stop making up numerous threads about imaginary children with crap names.

Vixxfacee what?

Op I'm with Vix, you said on the Darcie/Hayleigh thread that you're a Hayleigh. That post was by Lou Lou. Too many coincidences

Madison - really like it. Quite American but I like that trend.
Gabriella - really like it. Very elegant and classy. Dislike Gabbi though
Francesca - really like it. If you don't like Frannie/Frankie have you considered Kessa or Chessy? Not that I think it needs a nickname.
Darcy - really like it. Makes me think of Darcey Bussell and 2 gorgeous little Darceys that I know.
Eden - love it. Supposedly v trendy now but I've never met one.
Ellen - not keen. A bit prim and proper to my ears.
Ella - Like it. Though not keen on Ellie which it could become.
Evie - Quite like it but would use Evelyn or Evangeline for full.
Rosie - Like it. Cute. Perhaps use Rose or Rosemary for a more adult option
Rosa - Quite like it but prefer most of the other 'Rose based' names.
Louisa - not keen. Slightly dated to my ears
Angelica - Really like it. Unusual but I think it's beautiful.
Isabella - Really like it but there seem to be sooooo many. Popularity wouldn't usually put me off but in this case it might (esp with all the Isabelles/Isabels on top!)
Lilian - don't like this at all

Tough choice as it's a fantastic list but I think Eden or Angelica would be my pick.

I love Gabriella and Rosa (Rosie could be a nn). Lovely names.

Also like Francesca and Angelica.

Madison and Eden are my least favourite.
