Love Penelope - this was on my short list. Penny when young and Penelope in case she has important job in future like prime minister!

I Named my daughter Elizabeth. Beth for now and Elizabeth for that all important job in the future 😉

What if never wants to be known as Elizabeth, though.

Babasaclover Wed 01-Feb-17 15:51:29

It's ok if she chooses not to. She was named after my husbands nan so it has nice sentimental to have the proper name. We did name her always intending to call her Beth. She suits it well ☺️

What lovely names! I think your surname has a nice easy sound to it too that would lend itself to most names. (I am envious as mine certainly isn't and has ruled out many names that I otherwise love sad )

Beatrice is on my shortlist too, could be shortened to Bea of course. Cordelia is another I love. Sadly DH not currently keen on either and I can't decided between the two! 😂

Thank you for all replies!
I'm thinking I'm liking Beatrice - shortened to Bea, and Penelope best at the moment. My mum has told me that Natalia / Isabella / Violet are too "over the top".... what do you think?
Ps - I especially love Penelope Charlotte as someone suggested above😃

Sugarpiehoneyeye Thu 02-Feb-17 16:01:44

Penelope Charlotte is lovely Katherine.

I like Beatrice, Penelope and Emma best, but they are all nice names - I quite like Sybil too but I'm guessing it will be vetoed by your DH. Is it the fawlty towers thing maybe?

Mum8 Thu 02-Feb-17 16:08:16

Imogen and Georgia sound nice with your last name. Other names also nice but like these two the best with Millard

Mum8 Thu 02-Feb-17 16:09:25

Beatrice Millard also a good combo

katherine775 Thu 02-Feb-17 16:32:11

I think the reason he doesn't like Sybil could be to do with the fawlty towers! Shame as I quite like it as it isn't too common.
Mum8 ~ Imogen Millard does sound good... and Beatrice Millard😃
I really need to narrow down my options... are there any that should be eliminated, do you think??

KlingybunFistelvase Thu 02-Feb-17 16:35:34

I think I have the same taste as your mum as Violet, Isabella and Natalia are the names I'd take off the list if it were me.

Another suggestion (not that you asked for it sorry) is Ingrid. I love it and it's a little bit like Imogen but not anywhere near as well used.

katherine775 Thu 02-Feb-17 17:02:27

Yes, I think I'll take those off the list. (Plus, I could never name my child something that my mum doesn't like.)
Ingrid is lovely! Never thought of that before😃
Anymore suggestions / opinions?

I really like Natalia Millard and Violet Millard. I'd lose Emma as Emma Millard is an awful lot of 'm'.

GreatScot8 Sat 04-Feb-17 02:01:02

I like:
- Georgia
- Violet
- Penelope
- Isabella

I dislike:
- Beatrice
- Sybil (agree with your DH on this one - don't see the appeal at all, but that being said, the only Sybil I know is one who used to live above me; she was a chain-smoker and owned an albino ferret)

Others:
- Emma - I prefer Emily, but Emma makes a nice break from the current trend of names. It's timeless, easy to spell and pronounce. It's not very popular at the moment, which is always good
- Natalia - I don't mind this, but it's very Russian (stands out from your list), and is likely to be shortened to Nat, which is awful.
- Imogen - Objectively, this name is lovely and the Shakespearean connection is great, but I just can't make myself love it. I do love Immy as a nickname though. smile

I like Georgia Violet the most as a combination. Followed by Georgia Penelope.

Loving Georgia at the moment smile
