So our dd is due in June, we've not spent too much time thinking but here's our list. Would love your thoughts and suggestions!

I quite like names that are a bit unusual without being toooo wacky. I would rather veer towards classic than trendy if it comes down to it. Surname begins with M and I like the alliteration of m for first and surname.

Anyway, I hope I haven't got terrible tastes, everyone seems to be a bit weirded out by my ideas so far. sad

Marin - Love this, but know it's a bit hmm
Cora
Cecily – really like but best friends daughter is calledthis , quite like Cecilia / Celie too
Lara
Mara
Wren, again love it but people think I'm weird
Marguerite
Coralie
Elka
Elodie - too popular?

Like Elka

Celestia?

Of those, I like Cecily and Cora best, but prob a bit weird to use same name as your best friends DD.
Not keen on Wren. The rest are fine just not my taste.

Funnily enough celeste was on there but I took it off, I do like it though and celestia is really nice too.

I love it

Alyx80 Sat 30-Apr-16 16:33:57

I love Wren, how about Merryn?

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sat 30-Apr-16 16:34:06

I quite like Marin - never heard of it - but think people might think Marion?

Cecily nn Cece is very cool. You would have to ask your friend if she minds, I think.

Love Lara.

Cora is ok.

Don't like the others.

Suggestions:- Dora, Marnie, Flora, Cara, Sashsa, Saskia, Laura.

I like all except Elka. Wren is a nice name but I would avoid as it could end up being a bit ridiculous if your daughter is anything but petite and dainty when she gets older.

NoCapes Sat 30-Apr-16 16:49:53

Love Cora & Elodie (were both on my lists too)

emsyj Sat 30-Apr-16 16:51:48

Love Cora and Coralie was on my list last time. Celestine is beautiful, sadly very similar sounds to my surname or else I would have used it. Rosalie? Serafina? Marisol?

emsyj Sat 30-Apr-16 16:53:03

Or Elkie like Elkie Brooks!? Elka is lovely. Might put that on my list actually!! grin

TheTittifersHaveSungTheirSong Sat 30-Apr-16 16:53:12

Going with the M's for alliteration:
Melodie rather than elodie?
Maya
Mia
Marina
Martha
Meredith
??

These are so good. I'm actually really like a lot of these suggestions, my long list is getting even longer.

Also great getting feedback on the names we'd already thought of and pleased to see my taste hasn't gone completely haywire. Thank you!

Saffia

Trinity

Cerys

Cora, Coralie and Elodie are beautiful.

ShmooBooMoo Sat 30-Apr-16 17:09:50

I love Camille (which can also be pronounced the French way: Cammy)

Sylvie (also French)

Eponine (think that's French too). Pronounced Eh-Pon-Een

Miriam (going on the MM theme)

Meredith (also MM) or Mena (like Mena Suvari)

Elise

Anya

Noemie (like a French Naomi...pronounced No-Ay-Me

Genevieve (Jenna-Veev) LOVE this one! Sounds so pretty and vintage to my ear, and seems to be pretty rare. Room for Evie as a nickname too. If you want MM though, you could have something like Genevieve Michelle M.... or Genevieve Marie M.... etc

I love all these names and think they are a bit different smile Also love Cecily but you say that's out. You could actually go for Sicily or is that too close?

ShmooBooMoo Sat 30-Apr-16 17:14:55

There's also Cicely (Cissy as a nn?)

Marmy2008 Sat 30-Apr-16 17:19:53

I love Elodie <3 it's beautiful my mum hated it and made such a deal I took it off my list wish I had ignored her I think it's lovely!

Marmy2008 Sat 30-Apr-16 17:21:13

Also like Mara very unusual without being weird x

ShmooBooMoo Sat 30-Apr-16 17:34:40

Mirabella (or Mirabelle) I think it's Italian for wonderful.
