Okay, so following on from a previous thread, i think my husband and I have finally agreed!!! Just want the seal of approval from you lovely ladies! Open to criticism too! We would rather hear it now than once we've actually named the baby! Thank you all x

Yay smile

Very nice! Carly is lovely. Wouldn't usually be too keen on Jasmine but it sounds good all together smile.

Oh no... The Chloe Jasmine thing hadn't crossed my mind 😬 x

Lol, the Chloe Jasmine thing is verboten the teeniest bit relevant.

I think it's a lovely name.

Carly is so cool and I love the way it's a little different.

Ps you might want to get the thread deleted once you have your feedback if you are worried about your DD having an online footprint.

I'm sure a random Xfactor contestant will be forgotten exceptionally quickly!

Gorgeous. It literally rolls off the tongue

Lovely combination of names.

I'm not a great fan of Carly - Carly Rae Jepsen and iCarly seem to feature in our house regularly, unfortunately. The other Carly I know is a horror - so I'm probably biased.

The 2 names go well together though smile

Thanks for the feedback ladies. Much appreciated x

Very nice. I love Jasmine.

When I was much younger, I loved the name Carly (it was the name of a character on Home & Away). TBH it wouldn't be to my taste these days and I prefer Yasmin to Jasmine.

I don't really like Carly as a full name, too 'American' for my taste. I'd go for a 'proper' name on the BC and have Carly as a cute NN but with someone more formal to grow up with, maybe Charlotte or Caroline?

That said, I do know a 5yo Carly and she's a little doll.

Something*, not someone!

Sunshine511 Wed 13-Jan-16 09:05:02

Thanks everyone. unicornthong, I already have a daughter called Keira Ruby and I felt that Carly works better with that than the longer alternatives, although Charlotte is a beautiful name smile

Oh no... Really? Any other opinions on whether this works with Keira?x

looki Wed 13-Jan-16 13:52:02

If they are near in age, personally I would go with a different first letter. However if there is a big enough gap between them, I don't think it makes much difference as its unlikely you will be calling them both at the same time or they will be attending the same activity etc.

Sunshine511 Wed 13-Jan-16 14:02:36

There will only be 2 years between them! Another name I like (and have just come across thanks to MN) is Adele! Does that work with Keira? Does it sound okay with last name Hughes?x

Sofiria Wed 13-Jan-16 14:06:39

I don't really like Carly as a full name either, I'm afraid. But Adele Jasmine is lovely!

Raines100 Wed 13-Jan-16 14:22:41

It's a small point. I wouldn't worry about it. Won't matter when they're adults. Actually, if you say Carly and Keira that way round, it flows well!

Carly Jasmine is fabulous. Do it!

Sunshine511 Wed 13-Jan-16 15:05:13

I'm so torn now!!! Is there an option where we can just not name the baby? lol. To say I've been finding this a struggle is a massive understatement!x
