Our third - and last! - baby is due imminently, and we still haven't agreed on a name. We have two delightful DSs - Oscar and Leo - and are expecting our first DD. Last name is two syllables, beginning with P.

So far the names DH and I have agreed on are:
Beatrice
Eloise
Rosa

Combos with middle names might be:
Rosa Beatrice
Beatrice Eloise
Beatrice Rosa
Beatrice Lila
Eloise Beatrice

Names we love but can't use:
Vivienne
Madeleine
Delilah (adore this, but not brave enough!)

Would love thoughts on the above, or alternative suggestions!

Beatrice is a beautiful name.

DramaAlpaca Tue 22-Mar-16 00:02:53

Eloise, while a beautiful name, might be just a bit too similar in sound to Leo.

I really like Rosa Beatrice, and also Beatrice Eloise.

I love Delilah - go on, I dare you! grin

I really like Rosa, but think Rosanna is even prettier.

Eloise will probably become another of the 100s of little Ellies there are around.

How about:
Miranda
Catherine
Francesca
Josephine
Genevieve
Lydia

Beatrice Rose is the nicest.
From your sins names I would have suggested Poppy but with a P surname would be too much.

My suggestions

Nancy
Lilah
Norah
Frankie

They are all really nice. Sorry that's not too helpful but don't think you would go far wrong with any of them.

I think rosa goes best with the boys names

Newlywed56 Tue 22-Mar-16 01:05:07

Slightly different but Eloise rose is lovely

Thanks for all the thoughts so far! Please keep them coming... one name I forgot to put on the list was Angelica (an outside choice as I don't love the nicknames, but it's still in contention!)

Angelica is lovely!

Failing that, Beatrice Rosa.

I like Rosa Beatrice, though I like Rosalie and Rosina of all the 'Rose' names that are out there.
Maybe Rosina Beatrice?

I love Angelica Beatrice however.
Also Angelica Rosalie.

Am torn between Beatrice Rosa or Beatrice Lila.
I can't really improve on those but shall put forward Beatrice Camille.
If you go for Angelica otoh
Angelica Joy
Angelica Scarlett

You could be brave and use "Delilah " and shorten to "lilah" it's fab smile

Congratulations on your imminent arrival, I have a little girl 5 and she's a joy ( and a nightmare! ) after an 8 yr age gap with ds.

babymakesfive Tue 22-Mar-16 19:50:24

I would love to use Delilah but there are too many religious zealots on both sides of the family, unfortunately!

DH has has now informed me that he has gone off the name 'Rosa' - which is very annoying as that was probably my top choice. Who knew that naming girls could be so hard?

Appreciate all the opinions so far. Please keep the thoughts coming : )

Luckystar1 Tue 22-Mar-16 19:55:59

Not on your list, but what about Tabitha? I think it goes well with the boys names. Tabitha Beatrice.

LightTurquoise Tue 22-Mar-16 20:23:36

Eloise Rosa or Rosa Eloise

LightTurquoise Tue 22-Mar-16 20:24:49

Angelica is lovely, and I like the NN Angel, but hate Ang/Angie (sp?)

Sgoinneal Tue 22-Mar-16 20:35:45

Rosa my favourite by a mile.

SecretNutellaFix Tue 22-Mar-16 20:42:39

Beatrice Eloise.

PennyHasNoSurname Tue 22-Mar-16 20:44:02

I prefer Beatrix to Beatrice so Beatrix Rose Surname.

SophieofShepherdsBush Tue 22-Mar-16 20:55:17

Ahem. I'm an Angelica. I have always loved my name. I was jelly, jelly baby, Nelly when I was little. Gel or nel now. It's s fab name!

Didactylos Tue 22-Mar-16 20:58:37

is it terrible I really want to suggest 'Girly McGirlface'
in honour of this boat pollhttp://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/22/world/europe/boaty-mcboatface-what-you-get-when-you-let-the-internet-decide.html?_r=0

but on a serious note, Rosa Eloise or Beatrice Eloise are lovely

Sallyhasleftthebuilding Tue 22-Mar-16 21:19:35
