I don't think Daisy and Penelope go. Daisy and Penny a bit cutesy as is Daisy and Betsy. Daisy and Arabella are nice as are Daisy and Lillia.

Daisy and Arabella

I agree with kavv. All lovely but not overly keen on penelope.

Chloebonbon1 Thu 02-Jun-16 17:51:47

Daisy and Arabella are lovely

Winterdaisy Thu 02-Jun-16 19:48:16

Daisy Arabella are my DD middle names!

Dogolphin Thu 02-Jun-16 19:48:30

Daisy and Penelope! Lovely!

Twinkletwinkle4 Thu 02-Jun-16 21:14:58

Looks like majority think Arabella, just not sure on nn bella? What else could you have as a nn

And kav penny would not be a nn we would use for Penelope, Nel would be our preferred choice

Penelope!

Gardenbirds123 Thu 02-Jun-16 21:17:11

Or Phoebe!? (Inspiration from another active thread!)

Libby (short for elizabeth, like Daisy can be short for Margaret).

I also like the suggestions of Phoebe, and also of Penelope/Penny

I'd avoid another flower name, please say no to Rosie, Lily or Poppy.

Penelope, beautiful name and goes lovely with daisy.smile

ChitChatarunga Thu 02-Jun-16 21:21:28

Ps, I love Bella but not Arabella. Annabella perhaps but not Arabella. That's hard to say, but neither Annabella nor Arabella match Daisy.
Also, I think Americans would think Bella and Daisy were cows.

I have a Daisy and a Lily. But I like Daisy and Arabella

Twinkletwinkle4 Thu 02-Jun-16 21:25:15

I know of a phoebe so wouldn't be an option!
My Daisy isn't a Margaret, Never heard of it being short for anything?! Libby to knicknamey for me although nice enough :-)
Another flower name is not something we would consider either, even though lots of pretty other names

I like Daisy and Betsy and also Betty

IncandescentRain Thu 02-Jun-16 21:26:48

I love cows but Daisy and Betsy screams cow names to me.
I like Penelope

ChitChatarunga Thu 02-Jun-16 21:28:13

I think it dates back from Victorian times. The french for Daisy is marguerite so Margarets were often given the nn Daisy. My late aunt was one of them! Her sisters were Florence and Eleanor so I will suggest

Flora
Ellen
Lois
Ruby
Jemma
Clio
Thea
Anya
Greta

They all 'go' quite well with a sister Daisy.

hollyisalovelyname Thu 02-Jun-16 21:28:56

Daisy and Freya
Daisy and Holly

BeauGlacons Thu 02-Jun-16 21:29:06

Daisy and Alice
Daisy and Louisa

Of your options I like Daisy and Betsy best.

Twinkletwinkle4 Thu 02-Jun-16 23:45:45

What's everyone's thoughts on Bonnie?
Daisy & Bonnie
Thought it was quite a pretty sibset

WhyCantIuseTheNameIWant Thu 02-Jun-16 23:49:54

I know of

Daisie (not my choice of spelling!) And lily
Daisy and aimee
Daisy and zoe
Daisy and grace

Bonnie is nice. We know a lovely bonita "bonnie". But she only has a brother.

Lilacpink40 Thu 02-Jun-16 23:54:13

I like Arabella and Daisy and Bella sound sweet.

Daisies are Marguerites. Had you really not come across that when naming your first daughter?
I like Penelope best from your ideas.
