Dh and I are having a baby girl in October. Boys names were easy - we had 3 we agreed on, girls however a pretty hard!

I love
Everly, Edie and Tallulah. (Edie my absolute fave!)
He loves Lana.
We both like Thea.

Thea is the name of someone we both know - not a best friend, but an old work colleague and now friend.
Is it weird to name a baby, despite having a friend with that name. She won't be named after her per sé but will people think it's odd?

I love all your girls names, we have picked Edie for DC3 if it's a girl..,however no idea on boys names! What have you picked for a boy? Our taste in names seem similar!

I like Edie

Prefer Edith but like Edie. I don't like Tallulah or Everly. I do like Tula though

Hate Lana and Thea.

Wouldn't Everly be more suitable for brothers?

Edie, Lana and Thea are lovely. Lana is my favourite

I love Edie. Very nearly chose it myself, it would have been short for Edith, but you could also have it short for Eden or Meredith.

One of our dd's is theodora - intended to have the nn thea, however we don't tend to shorten it now!
Could that be an option?
From your list Edie is my favourite

I love Lana but Edie is lovely too.

I love Edie! (Hate Edith!) and like Everly too, it's different enough without being weird.

Other ones you might like...

I like Tallulah.

Like Lana and Thea. How about Talia?

No it's it off to name a baby with the same name as a mutual friend. I am sure friend would be delighted to have another Thea around. How are you pronouncing it? I know a Thee-a and a Taya both named Thea.
There's also Dorothea and Theodora.
Of the other names I love Lana. How about Lara?

candykane25 Mon 06-Jun-16 12:37:35

Ok not off!

marblestatue Mon 06-Jun-16 14:47:53

I like Edie, then Tallulah.

manicinsomniac Mon 06-Jun-16 15:32:03

I love all of them except Tallulah, which I'm not keen on. For Edie, I would use Edith as a full name.

My favourite is probably Everly.

I don't think it would be weird to Thea.

But, if you don't want to, how about Tia, Taryn, Tegan, Tara, Tamara, Thalia, Theresa or Tanya?

I have a Tallulah! grin I'm not keen on the other names though sorry

Wasn't there that child called Talula Does the Hula from Hawaii? I also recently heard of a Tallulah Princess Tinkerbell

misses the point of the thread

The reason I can't use Lana candy is that my name is LARA! Dh doesn't see what the issue is.
My cousin called her daughter the same name as a friend of ours and I always thought it was weird.... So massively hypocritical if I use it now! But Thea is the ONLY name we can agree onhmm

candykane25 Mon 06-Jun-16 20:18:51

Lara is a lovely name, you are very lucky.
Thea is literally adorable. We take inspiration from all places and if it resonates with you, go for it.

Lana is lovely. It was my second choice and sometimes I wish we had gone with it. As we chose an E name (4 letters) which is lovely, not often heard and we still haven't met another kid with the name. But. For her age group names starting with E are mega popular and I didn't realise that. There are many similar sounding names to hers and it just puts me off slightly. I love Lana. My DD's name is not dissimilar to it TBH.

I also love Penelope but I don't like nicknames / shortened names so that counted that out.

Edie is bland and a 'nothing' type name imo. I prefer Lana, Thea, Tia, Talia as suggested above.

Tallulah is okay...quite flouncy but at least it's not boring.
