With DC1 we found girls names easy but this time we don't agree! We know we want a short name (long surname) that doesnt end in "ie" or "ey" here is our current shortlist.
Niamh
Freya
Cora
Thea (I'm not keen as DC1 is Leo!)
Ada
Erin
Isla

Any other suggestions??
Thanks!

I also love Eve or Beatrice (shortened to B) but husband doesn't like these. Alice is a bit pretty for me. I want something strong sounding if that makes sense!??

Thanks for the suggestions! Can't use Tess (one in close family) but that's lovely. Never heard of Wren!

Husband likes Clara and Cara too.

We considered Wren for our DD but someone on here suggested we considered whether she was likely to be petite and bird-like. The answer to that was a resounding no, and we went with one of the other names mentioned a couple of times above.

Still love the name though.

Iv'e got a Niamh but have always had problems with people pronouncing it, i had Erin or Niamh picked and went with Niamh but she loves Erin, always say's why didn't you choose Erin instead.
