Francesca - love it.
Charlotte - really like it
Eliza - it's ok but not especially keen
Jane - too plain. Makes a good middle name
Madeleine - really like it
Emmeline - quite like it. Unusual.

Abigail, Annabelle, Alicia, Alexandra, Bryony, Bethany, Claire, Clarissa, Camilla, Chloe, Constance, Daphne, Darcey, Emily, Eleanor, Eliana, Evelyn, Evangeline, Erin, Felicity, Florence, Georgina, Giselle, Grace, Hannah, Harriet, Holly, Hazel, Hope, Honor, Isabel, Imogen, India, Jessica, Joanna, Julia, Katie, Katherine, Laura, Lauren, Lara, Melissa, Miranda, Matilda, Miriam, Naomi, Natalie, Natasha, Nadia, Olivia, Phoebe, Paige, Rebecca, Rachel, Ruby, Rosie, Robyn, Rowan, Sadie, Saffron, Sylvia, Sophie, Thea, Tegan, Verity, Vanessa, Victoria, Willow, Zoe

All beautiful IMO with the exception of Emmeline and Charlotte. It'd be nice to see Jane make a come back.

Francesca - like esp cesca as nn
Charlotte - ok but maybe crown charlotte means ubiquitous
Eliza - like but prefer élise or alisa
Jane - not keen, have it as one of my middle names
Madeleine - pretty but prefer Madison or Matilda
Emmeline - dislike sorry, prefer Emily, Emma or Amélie

Lucas and Charlotte make me think of the character in Pride and Prejudice!

I like Emmeline the best, but I don't think any of them 'go' with Lucas if that's what you're after - Francesca maybe.

I'd expect Lucas's sister to be a more widely used name I think. (Just going on those I know).

Amelia
Matilda
Jessica

others:
Nathalie
Rebecca
Eloise
Gabriela

Kimmyschmidt that's wild, I didn't even see you'd suggested Nathalie (that spelling, too! Spooky!)

Thymewarp Fri 03-Jun-16 07:24:30

Some great suggestions - thank you!

I like Eleanor, Eloise and Matilda but DH vetoed Matilda.

We need a name that doesn't sound awful in French or in an American accent which bumped Eleanor down the list.

I think I tend toward longer formal names with nicknames with the exception being Isla.

Also added to the list is Elaine nn Lainey

Thymewarp Fri 03-Jun-16 07:25:47

Clementine has really grown on me but DH would take convincing. Not sure about naming a child after a fruit.

Sgoinneal Fri 03-Jun-16 07:48:20

Elaine feels very 70s to me - not like your other names. Definitely prefer Eleanor or Eloise.

manicinsomniac Fri 03-Jun-16 08:51:03

Agree re Elaine being old fashioned (I'd actually call it more 40s and 50s?)

I like Lainey though

How about Elina, Eliana, Elianne, Lana or Lena?

LadyAntonella Fri 03-Jun-16 09:13:09

Francesca and Emmeline are gorgeous and my favourites from your list. That said, I really like all your names.

Other suggestions:

Tabitha
Edith
Ivy
Isadora
Leonora

LadyAntonella Fri 03-Jun-16 09:22:09

Also Audrey maybe?

ABitAsleep Fri 03-Jun-16 09:38:51

I like Eliza and Emmeline from your list, not too keen on the others.

How about...

Lucas and Joanna
Lucas and Jemima
Lucas and Savannah
Lucas and Samantha
Lucas and Stephanie
Lucas and Hannah
Lucas and Hailey
Lucas and Elora
Lucas and Avril
Lucas and Ashleigh
Lucas and Abigail
Lucas and Philippa
Lucas and Leanna
Lucas and Lisa

Elaine is my aunt - born in the 50s. Lena was my grandmother and I adore the name but I'm hesitant to have two L names. Luc and Lena sounds too twee.

When I was very early in my pregnancy I dreamt quite vividly that I gave birth to a hippopotamus that we named Philomena Flump. DH has now taken to calling the bump Philomena and wants to use the name! I don't think she'd thank us for it.

Sgoinneal Fri 03-Jun-16 10:48:29

You could combine the two - Elena?

ABitAsleep Fri 03-Jun-16 11:51:35

I was going to suggest Elena too, or Elina or Helena

ABitAsleep Fri 03-Jun-16 11:53:48

Elisa/Elissa?

I read a fantastic series where one of the main characters was called Elayne, would that spelling take the 70's edge off the name?

JenniferAnistonsHair Sun 05-Jun-16 20:48:47

Meredith?
Martha?

Horseshoe1 Sun 05-Jun-16 23:02:39

Clara

Thymewarp Mon 06-Jun-16 11:14:18

Love Clara but it's just awful when pronounced with an American accent. It comes out as ClaiRe-a.

DH thinks Elena sounds Russian?
