Apologies if you have seen my other thread. Only starting a new one as want to focus on which name fits with the sibling names.

So which goes best?

Jemima (new entry since last thread)
Rose (another new entry)

Matilda or Jemima. Love them both.

They all go pretty well though.

Jemima is lovely. Matilda too.
What about Rosa instead of Rose?

AuntieStella Fri 01-Jan-16 12:21:18

Lovely names!

I think Jemima goes best, with Matilda as runner up.

I think Rosa would flow better than Rose, and the only one that I don't think fits in is Nina.

Sophronia Fri 01-Jan-16 14:50:11

Nina, Jemima or Rose.

MyNewBearTotoro Fri 01-Jan-16 14:51:58

Jemima or Rose.

Matilda or Ella also sound fine. I would say definitely not Nina though.

tuilamum Fri 01-Jan-16 14:56:29

I'd say not Ella as Isobel could end up with a similar sounding nn at some point
I like Matilda or Jemima personally (slightly biased as DSis is a Jemima)

Not Ella. Isobel often gets stretched to Isabella ime, even if she isn't. I love all of your dc's names and am not convinced that any of the ones you've listed are as nice as the three you've got already, tbh.

IamSantaClaus Fri 01-Jan-16 23:07:32

I think Nina and Rose go the best

You have a very Victorian/Edwardian feel to your names. Jemima goes well. Beatrice? Not Ella.

DramaAlpaca Fri 01-Jan-16 23:25:22

Jemima or Matilda go best IMO.

Pobspits Fri 01-Jan-16 23:39:15

Jemima but Harriet or Phoebe would be better

TrappedInAWitchesCurse Fri 01-Jan-16 23:41:49

Matilda from your list, but when I read your thread title I immediately thought Hetty.

sofato5miles Fri 01-Jan-16 23:43:51

Jemima or Harriet

sofato5miles Fri 01-Jan-16 23:46:43

There are a fair few Matildas about now. We gave it as a middle name, which we agonised over at the time but it worked out.

BestIsWest Fri 01-Jan-16 23:57:24

I like Hetty.

I would have loved a Jemima! But it was the only name my husband said absolutely not to (no idea why). As pp has already said, Harriet or Phoebe would go really well too.

SummerMonths Sat 02-Jan-16 08:12:06

I do sort of agree that none of my list are as good as my existing three. I just knew what to call them. This time it's much harder. I'm leaning toward Matilda but just not sure.

Thanks for the other suggestions. I'm not keen on Harriet but Phoebe is nice. I'm not sure it's THE one though.

I really like Beth but I would want to give the full name of Elizabeth and I can't because it's so closely related to Isobel.

Cookiesandcoffee Sat 02-Jan-16 19:07:44

Jemima, Matilda and Elizabeth are my top 3 names In that order (also have an Isabelle already) I don't think Elizabeth is too similar. My DH hates hates hates Jemima sad though so watching with interest. Beatrice is also on my list if that helps? I used Rose as a middle name rather than a first name?

SummerMonths Sat 02-Jan-16 20:46:21

Cookies - we have v similar taste in names! Unfortunately I think Elizabeth and Isobel/Isabelle are too close because Isabelle is the Spanish for Elizabeth and they have the same root and same meaning. It would be like having a Mary and a Maria. Shame as I really like Beth.

I do like Beatrice but DH says he could never choose the same name that Sarah Ferguson chose!

Hellofromtheotherside7 Sat 02-Jan-16 20:51:33

Love the name Matilda. What about Stella, Eleanor or Florence?

R00tat00tt00t Sat 02-Jan-16 21:02:46

Maybe Matilda? What about Evelyn, Elspeth or Ottilie (?sp)?
