Miriam

Love Rosalie too!

Isn't Mirren a surname, though? As in Helen Mirren? I wasn't aware of it becoming a first name?

From your list I love Rosalind and Caroline, and especially Madeleine. I would avoid Isla just because it's so popular at the moment.

Heatherbell1978 Sat 16-Jul-16 07:07:08

Pemba I'm in Scotland and Mirren is a first name, although quite a rare one. I've come across a few Mirrens. Thanks for the suggestions! A few of them have been veto-ed by DH actually! And surname starts with E so not keen on first name starting with E which rules out a few....

Would you pronounce Rosalie 'Rose - alie' as opposed to 'Roz - alie'? That's the one thing putting me off that name, the thought of it being incorrectly pronounced all the time!

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Sat 16-Jul-16 07:30:53

I would say Rose-ah-lee.

Pemba Sat 16-Jul-16 15:37:30

Heatherbell oh sorry, I didn't know that about 'Mirren'. That's interesting. I wonder what the meaning of the name is, etc.

Bellyrub1980 Sat 16-Jul-16 15:39:09

Madeleine
Bethany
Heidi
Holly

Do you like Hazel?

Bellyrub1980 Sat 16-Jul-16 15:40:21

Although I'd pick the traditional English spelling Madeline

Dheksta Sat 16-Jul-16 15:45:00

From your list: Madeleine, (pronounced LINE not LYN), Kate, Mirren, Isla, Heidi and Holly.

What about... Charlotte, Lydia, Caitlin

BendydickCuminsnatch Sat 16-Jul-16 16:03:58

I was thinking the other day how lovely and unused Bethany is.

Heidi and Zara both on our list. Like Kate and Holly too! Although Kate now reminds me of fucking Kate & Mim-Mim, most irritating show in the universe.

In Scotland Mirren is often used as a form of Mary Ann, Marian or Mairi Anna... it's an old name but has become more popular recently, some say since its use in the film Braveheart (though it was spelled "Murron" which I've seen used as well smile )

Heatherbell1978 Sat 16-Jul-16 20:49:07

Aah Kate and Mim Mim....never thought of that! Not so keen on Hazel and I know a few Charlottes. I like Anais but DH and I really struggle to see eye to eye on names and he's not into anything too girly. Kate is his favourite which I really like and would suit our long surname but I like the thought of something slightly more unusual (but classic at the same time). Rosalie Mirren would be nice but DH not sure on Mirren......with DS1 it was so easy, we had a boy name agreed before he was conceived!!

Bigfam Sat 16-Jul-16 21:00:16

I really love Rosalie as well and would have added it to our list for our baby girl we are expecting in Dec, but, I think a lot of people wouldn't pronounce it how I'd like (not even sure how it's meant to be pronounced myself!) But I like it as a pp has commented rose-ah-lee.

Quite a few of the names you've listed are lovely too though.

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Sat 16-Jul-16 21:11:08

Rosalie Kate maybe? I think that's lovely.

yaaasqueen Tue 19-Jul-16 16:09:40

Another vote for Rosalie Kate !
Madeleine Zara is nice too

I like:

Elspeth
Emmeline
Arielle
Isadora
Anna - Kate
Annabeth
Alexandra

If your DH Isn't too keen on girlie then how about short strong names like
Rose
Anna
Ilse / Ilsa
Hope
Quinn
Noelle
Bridie
Blythe
Brynn
Eva/Eve
