Sister for Emmeline

Name changed for this so I don't have to worry about outing myself with details!

Me and DH are really struggling to agree on a name this time around and DD2 is due any day. DD1 is Emmeline, which we both love and surname is 2 syllables starting with M.

We have finally managed to create a list of 10 "names we don't hate" and would like as many opinions as we can get without letting family think they have a say!

Lydia. It's the name that came into my head without reading your OP.

I like all of these! Perhaps my favourite three to go with Emmeline would be
and if it's not too cheeky might tweak Anna and turn it into Annabel.

Lydia, Robyn or Felicity

Sophronia Sat 09-Jul-16 17:26:36

I think Felicity goes best with Emmeline

I also like Anna, Rose, Alice and Lydia.

I like Rosaline and Holly from your list. Actually Alice would be my favourite but I don't think they sound quite right together.

Otherwise, what about:
Emmeline and Zara
Emmeline and Clara
Emmeline and Francesca
Emmeline and Gabriella
Emmeline and Zoe
Emmeline and rosalia
Emmeline and Margot
Emmeline and Melody
Emmeline and Freya
Emmeline and Seren (or serena)

Thanks all!

Donkeys Annabel was on the slightly longer list and could still be a contender.

NamingStress Sat 09-Jul-16 18:01:47

Regular Clara, Zoe and Seren were all possibilities that we decided against but it's nice to know our taste isn't too terrible!

BoxofSnails Sat 09-Jul-16 18:06:34

I like Felicity and Rosalie, both have the 3 syllables thing in common and similar era, unusual but not weird or difficult for English tongues to pronounce. Congratulations!

I adore Emmeline, and your list is lovely.

From your list I think Felicity & Rosalie go beautifully, and Annabel is also nice.

wobblywonderwoman Sat 09-Jul-16 18:15:44

The above suggestion of Freya is very pretty but I like all of your names (perhaps Chloe not as much)

Also like Francesca or Charlotte

Dogolphin Sat 09-Jul-16 19:46:04

Antonia (Anna)

OhTheRoses Sat 09-Jul-16 19:52:24

I like Felicity. Possibly Rosalind rather than Rosalie. Annabel is too close to Christabel for me and the Pankhurst connection. What about Susannah?

daisydalrymple Sat 09-Jul-16 19:52:41

All beautiful names, all go well with emmeline. Also love most of the suggestions here; I too also thought of Francesca and Charlotte before I read your own list, but I love all of your short list. You may find you can narrow it down by half and then wait to see what she suits best.

daisydalrymple Sat 09-Jul-16 19:54:36

Chloe, Lydia and rosalie would be my shortlist I think

SorenaJ Sat 09-Jul-16 20:19:37

Rosalie or Felicity

FlyDragonfly1 Sat 09-Jul-16 22:00:21

I think Felicity and Rosalie are beautiful and 'fit' the best with Emmeline.

I know one Emmeline whose sister is called Kitty (Katherine) which is cute.

NamingStress Sat 09-Jul-16 22:57:00

Fly I love Kitty! Unfortunately my name is Katherine and I just can't name my daughter after myself grin

MinervaMcG Sat 09-Jul-16 22:57:53

I know an Emmeline whose little sister is Juliette

BoboBunnyH0p Sat 09-Jul-16 23:24:24

Rosalie gets my vote it was vetoed by DH.
Also like Felicity and Robyn.

Ambroxide Sat 09-Jul-16 23:44:13

I vote Felicity or Lydia.
