Hi all,

Expecting twin girls soon and these are the names on our shortlist. DH is Italian and so we wanted names that worked in both Italy and England.

I'd love it if you could tell me which two of these you like the best/go best together and also suggest middle names from the list!

Thanks all X

Cassandra (nn. Cassie)
Isabella (nn. Bella)
Alessia (nn. Ally)
Rosalia (nn. Rosie or Lia)
Lucia (nn. Lucy)
Serafina (nn. Sera)
Aurelia (nn. Lia?)

* I am aware that nicknames are formed naturally and most are not chosen, I've just included our preferred nicknames and it would be helpful if you could also offer your opinion on them!

Suggestions are always welcome X

Congratulations smile. I think they're all such lovely names, it must be hard to choose. I love Rosalia and Lucia together. I think that's my favourite combo, followed by Alessia and Lucia.

I like Lucia and Isabella out of all of your names. Do not like Lucy though and I like cassie but not cassandra.

Oh they're all gorgeous names!! Sorry that really doesn't help, ha!

Hmm...Cassandra and allessia? I love cassie (I wasn't allowed it for my dd!)

Zippidydoodah Tue 23-Aug-16 17:51:58

Presuming Lucia is pronounced "loo-CHEE-a", I don't see how it could be shortened to Lucy?

I just re read the pp and I also like allessia and Lucia!

I'm not overly keen on the -a ending for all of them.

Summerbluues Tue 23-Aug-16 19:06:23

all lovely smile personal faves are Emma (one of my top 3 names)
Isabella (very popular at the moment though)
Rosalia- not so keen on Rosie but love Lia
Aurelia- beautiful!

BendydickCuminsnatch Tue 23-Aug-16 19:07:36

Absolutely love Alessia and Emma with it. Congratulations, lucky you!

I love Cassandra and Isabella as a pair, also Emilia is a beautiful name I think it has Italian roots tho I may be wrong, I think cassie Jane is so sweet and Isabella sound nice with may, grace, Kate. good luck

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Tue 23-Aug-16 19:23:39

Emma or Alessia and Serafina for me! They are all lovely. I really love nn Ally too.

I knew a Cassandra and she hated her name but I've no idea why as I think it's pretty. Isabella is v well-used where I live so I might steer away from that but it is also v pretty. I find Rosalia and Lucia not to my taste - not keen on the -ia sound at the end of those two.

How about Antonella?

Quercus3 Tue 23-Aug-16 20:34:21

Cassandra Lucia and Alessia Emma

user1471501988 Tue 23-Aug-16 20:47:07

Rosalia Maria and Alessia Sophia

NapQueen Tue 23-Aug-16 20:51:42

Aurelia and Lucia (but I prefer the Loosha pronounciation)

pinkegg11 Tue 23-Aug-16 20:58:27

Just a couple of others to consider - Allegra and Sienna.

pieceofpurplesky Tue 23-Aug-16 21:00:53

Cassandra and Isabella - Cassie and Bella

Alessia & Lucia are my favourites.
For middle names, are you looking for something that works in English and Italian or it doesn't matter?

TwoLittleBlooms Tue 23-Aug-16 21:20:37

I absolutely love Serafina and Aurelia. They are all lovely names but my least favourite are Cassandra and Lucia.

NavyandWhite Tue 23-Aug-16 21:23:14

Serafina ( prefer the ph spelling though ) and Isabella.

bleedingnora Tue 23-Aug-16 21:25:20

Lucia and Isabella same as a PP said

I think the only middle name that goes is Emma as otherwise it is too many syllables somehow

So Isabella Emma and Lucia ?Rose

Mummydummy Tue 23-Aug-16 21:31:32

Such beautiful names. Really beautiful. My faves are Aurelia and Serafina. But as pairs probably:
Serafina and Isabella
Aurelia and Lucia

I also love Aurora, Allegra and Anastasia.

LadyMonicaBaddingham Tue 23-Aug-16 21:49:54

The Lucia I know is nicknamed Lulu...

Caldini22 Tue 23-Aug-16 22:20:10

Really lovely names! I especially like Lucia and serafina. But they are all very pretty.

BrollySmolly Tue 23-Aug-16 22:21:50

Cassie and Bella sound fab!
