Sister for Annabelle

Just that really. We don't know the gender but we're decided on a name it its a boy. We love our DD's name and it really suits her and I love the nn options (she uses Annie and Belle depending on the wind direction!) but I am worried that we won't love another as much. Must be a name that has nn options but I would use the full name on birth certificate.

Other names that I love are:

Juliet nn Ettie (despite opting for the frillier, less mumsnet friendly spelling of Annabelle, I prefer the Juliet spelling rather than Juliette)

Charlotte nn Lottie ( don't love Charlotte but love love love Lottie)

Elisabeth nn Bess (again, more in love with the nn)

Felicity (though DH was unconvinced last time)

Josephine nn Josie

Other names that I like but cannot use are:

Beatrice
Alice
Eleanor
Emily
Olivia
Sophie
Rosa

DH says no to Florence, Constance, Prudence.

What else might I like / which of those names do you like best? Thanks!! Xx

I'm not keen on Felicity but like all your other names.

Cassandra (nn Cass, Cassie)
Harriet (nn Hattie) or Henrietta (nn Hetty, Etta)
Penelope (nn Penny)
Theodora (nn Teddy)

I was going to suggest Charlotte.

Tessa?
Maria?

I think something ending in an 'a' would go well with Annabelle

Good Luck whatever you decide

Thanks for some lovely suggestions guys. I think my favourites are Charlotte and Juliet still but it's good to do this to be sure of that! Xx

anniebambammie Wed 18-May-16 14:32:01

I also have an Annabelle and I really love Olivia and Elisabeth!

CPtart Wed 18-May-16 14:35:26

Don't like Felicity and prefer Elizabeth spelt this way.
Probably prefer Juliet.
How about Louisa, Faye, Alexandra, Cassandra, Melissa.

NoncommittalToSparkleMotion Wed 18-May-16 14:37:07

For some reason I think Lucille (Lucy) goes nicely.

GreenBeans17 Wed 18-May-16 23:10:06

Charlotte is my favourite smile goes well with Annabelle. I think Juliette goes amazing! However, that spelling, so it's even grin

Dangerouswoman Wed 18-May-16 23:17:27

I feel like you need a one syllable name eg
Annabelle and Kate
Annabelle and Eve
Annabelle and Tess
Annabelle and Jane
Annabelle and Faye
Annabelle and Rose
Annabelle and Beth
Annabelle and Hope

Some of those are shortened versions of longer names so you could use those eg Katherine, Elizabeth.

DramaAlpaca Wed 18-May-16 23:19:51

Charlotte & Juliet are my favourites from your list.
