Love tabitha! It's our side top 250 I think.
Claudia isn't unusual.
How about Ursula, Ramona, Merren, Anita?

lavenderpekins Fri 14-Oct-16 17:52:22

Ooh thanks! We're going round in circles..

I love Tabitha but worried it's becoming too popular. The others I like and love to an extent but I'm having real trouble being decisive!!

We know so many more children now iykwim!

What could be a fun/cute nickname for Octavia do you think?

AngharadTheSplendid Fri 14-Oct-16 17:57:44

Love Claudia, one week old dd was v nearly a Claudia nn Coco. We went with Saskia nn Suki in the end so obviously love that too.

Tavi as nn for Octavia?

Vivi is very sweet thank you 😊

Enidblyton1 Fri 14-Oct-16 18:19:58

Ooh I like Albertine! Could be shortened to Bertie.
Also love Clementine, but that is definitely becoming more popular
How about Wilhelmina? Lots of possible cute nicknames - Mina, Minna, Willow, Willa....

PrincessOnTheInternet Fri 14-Oct-16 18:20:18

Ophelia
Aurelia/Aurelie
Posy
Pearl
Garnet
Dulce
Corinne
Calliope
Philomena

From your list, love Claudia/Suki/Opal/Tabitha.

NavyandWhite Fri 14-Oct-16 18:22:20

Posy is gorgeous my next mini dachshund shall be called that

lavenderpekins Fri 14-Oct-16 18:38:17

Albertine definitely isn't top 250 so would work quite well in our family.. just know some family of mine wouldn't like it!! Not that it's up to them obviously!

Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 14-Oct-16 18:50:16

How about Leontine.
From your list I like Tabitha and Suki.
Other suggestions:
Aurora (Rory)
Rosabelle (Rosie)
Ebba
Ottilie

sonlypuppyfat Fri 14-Oct-16 18:53:42

You've not written any beautiful unusual names! Clementine quite nice

Chinlo Fri 14-Oct-16 18:54:00

I like Clementine and Octavia. I also love Ophelia which a PP mentioned, but only when pronounced (correctly wink) as off-ELL-ia rather than off-EEL-ia

Ikeameatballs Fri 14-Oct-16 19:03:51

I don't like Albertine or Wednesday but the others are lovely, I think Opal must be least popular.

Other names:
Agatha
Freda
Araminta
Dolores
Valentina
Vita
Fenella
Uma
Thora
Emerald

Swearwolf Fri 14-Oct-16 19:05:28

I love Octavia, it was on our list. We'd have called her Tavi for short.

We also liked Cecilia and Margot, went with Sylvie in the end.

Boolovessulley Fri 14-Oct-16 19:24:01

I like Claudia best. Think Wednesday only works if your dd is born on a Wednesday bit I do like it.

Shemozzle Fri 14-Oct-16 20:01:44

Following as looking for similar names. Our shortlist is down to Cassiopeia or Tabitha but I'm still not sure. I already have an Antigone (Tiggy).

Other names I have suggested that dp seems indifferent to or dislikes:

Clementine
Calliope
Fern
Persephone (Percy)
Theodora
Clover
Nova
Sylvie
Andromeda
Eris

Luckystar1 Fri 14-Oct-16 20:03:55

Araminta - nn Minty
