We have boys names lined up, but girls are so hard. We like good strong names and names that are not too common. So far we have but are not sold on;

Annie
Mathilda
Esther
Jocelyn
Evelyn
Ottilie
Eliza
Violet

Rachel

Katiekins86 Mon 25-Jul-16 23:37:27

Not keen on Rachel but do like Audrey, it's been swimming in my head but I've never really seriously thought of it before now. Does it sound too old lady or prude?

SuckingEggs Mon 25-Jul-16 23:40:17

I like Audrey.

How about Joy, Jennifer, Juliet?

finova Mon 25-Jul-16 23:41:51

How about Francesca?

Katiekins86 Mon 25-Jul-16 23:48:48

Love Jennifer,but can't use.

Juliet too but maybe as a middle name, thank you.

Katiekins86 Mon 25-Jul-16 23:50:21

Not keen on Fran as a Nickname although I like francesca so puts me off. Davinia not for me but thank you

How about Elizabeth and use Eliza as the nickname. Just called my baby girl Elizabeth but we use Beth for short. Wanted a good strong name too

winewolfhowls Tue 26-Jul-16 07:26:07

I like lavinia. Could the nn be nia?

Liz09 Tue 26-Jul-16 07:28:22

I like Annie, Mathilda (spelt Matilda though, as no one is going to remember the H) and Violet.

Katiekins86 Tue 26-Jul-16 13:04:14

Oh wow Elspeth. Love that name! Thank you.

Love Alexandra too but can't use it have a young brother called Alex.

Elizabeth would have been great both of us love the name but we lost a friend called John whilst I was pregnant and his daughter is an Elizabeth. Feels a bit odd to use both names iyswim

Rosaaa Tue 26-Jul-16 19:20:54

From your names I like Esther and Mathilda. How about Valentina or Veronica?

Vanessa
Marissa

DrLizAsher Tue 26-Jul-16 19:47:16

We have a Jonathan (great choice!) and if we'd had a girl names we liked were:

Elizabeth
Abigail
Esther
Cordelia
Penelope
Sylvia

Matilda is lovely but I know quite a few little Matildas now - think it's on the rise.

Also a bit out there but I heard a little Marnie the other day and it really struck me as a lovely name!

NavyandWhite Tue 26-Jul-16 19:48:47

I would put Hannah or Emily with Jonathon.

AspiringMother Tue 26-Jul-16 19:55:45

I really like the Audrey suggestion. Sylvia is a great name too. We've chosen Madeline if we were to have a little girl. smile

AspiringMother Tue 26-Jul-16 20:04:46

Oh and Penelope is a great choice too!
