Sister for Indigo

Just found out we're having another girl and we're struggling with names. So far we like Nyx and Muse.
I also quite like the idea of a Scottish name but it's not a must. Any ideas?

Violet would have been my first choice for dd1 but dp says it's an old lady name. I also really like Astrid but he's not too sure. He's the awkward one honest!

ItchyFoot Mon 27-Jun-16 10:29:39

Also what do people think on Nyx and Muse?

PatriciaHolm Mon 27-Jun-16 10:35:51

I don't think either of them work as a child's name to be honest. Nyx will spend her life saying "no, not Nix...". Muse has a nicer meaning but everyone will presume she's named after the band!

PatriciaHolm Mon 27-Jun-16 10:36:19

If not violet, how about Viola?

BeautyGoesToBenidorm Mon 27-Jun-16 10:43:21

Yes to Viola! That's a lovely alternative to Violet.

I agree with Patricia regarding Nyx and Muse. I'm not really keen of either.

Indigo and Zola

Indigo and Ember
Indigo and Taia
Indigo and Tatiana
Indigo and Jana

Not a fan of Viola. Nyx is the one I'm more unsure of. Not too bothered if people think Muse is for the band. Indigo is named after a song by Pucifer.

ItchyFoot Mon 27-Jun-16 10:45:32

I like Lux and Ember. Would she forever be saying no not Amber?

CourtJester Mon 27-Jun-16 10:56:09

Itchy she might get the problem with Ember/Amber, but their are about a million Amelia/Emilia's having the same problem right now, so i don't imagine it to be too bad

First association with Lux is soap. I don't like it. It then makes me think of dreadful gold lame cardigans that I once saw described in a magazine as lux, but this is very specific to me smile only other associations are looks/lucks which have no significance to me here.

First association of Muse is obviously the nine Muses of Greek/Roman mythology, also the band, also a street name if spelt Mews. The sound a cat makes. The verb to muse (upon something), meaning to think.

Ember is OK but more of a middle name to me.

Ambivalent on Nyx, you run the risk of people presuming its short for Nicola. Also the chance of knickers based nicknames through school.

With Indigo I like Anouk, Willow, Esme, Fleur. Any colour name, and any nature/hippy name.

ItchyFoot Mon 27-Jun-16 11:03:51

I really like Anouk

Raines100 Mon 27-Jun-16 11:22:07

Indigo is lovely.
Never heard of Nyx. Where does it come from?
Not keen on the sound of Muse. When read, I think of Ancient Greece. When said, I think of a kitten crying or a block of flats grin
Like the alternative style, though.

Anouk is great with Indigo.
What about Clio, Thalia or Calliope?

Raines100 Mon 27-Jun-16 11:26:24

Ah, Nyx is a Greek goddess, too, I see.
And here I thought you were channeling Stevie...

ItchyFoot Mon 27-Jun-16 14:02:34

Yes Nyx like the goddess. Dp doesn't like Anouk apparently. We had this problem last time!

Thewolfsjustapuppy Mon 27-Jun-16 20:34:27

Fraya is also a goddess
Scarlet would work with Indigo
Anouk is lovely your DH clearly has no taste grin

Pinklily1 Mon 27-Jun-16 20:35:36

Itchy, Ember is lovely. My personal favourite of your possibilities.

Aglaia? One of the Graces. It's mythological but imo much nicer than Nyx. (which, btw, means nothing in German, it's spelled differently but pronounced exactly the same way).

Juno would be very lovely, imo! It's also the name of a Goddess. Plus, Junoband Indigo just go together without being matchy...

Or maybe Annika?

BikeRunSki Mon 27-Jun-16 20:39:42

Indigo and Violet... And s pet called Blue???

TheImprobableGirl Mon 27-Jun-16 20:43:24

Just a word of warning about nyx... I assume you are not after something of faerie fame?

this is nyx- from tinkerbell and the never easy smile
