Sybil don't mind the Fawlty Towers association
Indie is it insubstantial
Greta is it too harsh
Juno
Tabitha family struggle with pronouncing the th

How about Esther or Eden?

Of your boy list, my favourite is Jedidiah by miles - I love it! Also love Abraham, Isaiah, Reuben and Caleb.

Greta is lovely, and not harsh at all, IMO, but how do you feel about Gretel? Slightly softer, more cutesy sounding?

I love Juno.

Adore Cassius and Rex is lovely
I like Juno from your list. What about India? So pretty.

JanuaryJuniper Mon 28-Nov-16 20:26:41

Hmmm I like Sylvia, India and Wren from suggestions but these have already been considered and dismissed for various reasons!

It seems even more difficult choosing a third as I want it to "fit' with Eli and Aphra, so we don't have a blank slate as such.

Juno and Greta are lovely.
What about Saskia, Heidi, Cleo, Romily,

If you want it to 'fit' surely you need Hebrew/Old Testament names. So:

Rachael
Ester
Miriam

Those type of names.

Benedikte2 Tue 29-Nov-16 01:02:41

Freya
Criseyde (pronounced Cris-aid and the old form of Cressida)
Adriel
Elisha
Sapphira
Jemima

I think you need something monosyllabic:
June
Bess
Maud
Joy

The problem with trying to get another Hebrew Old Testament name to "fit" is that I don't really like any girls names whereas there are loads of OT boys names I LOVE!

JanuaryJuniper Tue 29-Nov-16 12:37:04

At the moment myself and dh are thinking...

Greta Zelda Veronica
Greta Zita Veronica
Greta Vera Juniper
Greta Vera Clementine

I'm afraid Greta Vita puts my teeth on edge like fingernails on chalk boards

Benedikte2 Tue 29-Nov-16 13:06:22

I mean Zita

Benedikte2 Tue 29-Nov-16 13:08:42

Vera is a nice and (now) unusual name -- goes well with Aphra which is also soft. I had a (pedigree) cat once called Aphra. She had a lovely patient nature and was a wonderful mother.

Eli, Aphra and Hannah.
Eli, Aphra and Ruth.
Eli, Aphra and Miriam.
I think it's a shame you don't like them: they all sound beautiful with your boys;' names. Lyrical almost.

: Too many syllables. Greta is a very harsh beginning for such a mouthful of names for a tiny person.

JanuaryJuniper Tue 29-Nov-16 14:39:00

I do like Ruthbutknow too many. Keziah is nice but does it have a hint of name a teenage mother would use ?
