I'm a 45 year old mum to be, 'surprise" ! (shock)
I already have three grown ups, Lucien, Charlotte and George ( I know) I need something for a girl, fairly classic, beginning with L, does anyone have any ideas? I have been through every online listing. Don't want Lysandra or Lucy or Louise.

Lara?

Liberty?

Congratulations, btw!

My favourite girl's name beginning with L is Leigh. It's one of those names I think can suit any personality.

KlingybunFistelvase Fri 10-Feb-17 15:34:01

Why does it need to begin with L, just out of interest?

Leonora
Leonie
Letitia
Lillian
Lilleth
Lilac
Laura
Lorelei
Laurel
Lauren

KlingybunFistelvase Fri 10-Feb-17 15:34:21

Oh yes and Lisa

ArseyTussle Fri 10-Feb-17 15:34:26

It's not really classic, but I love Lois.

LiviaBC Fri 10-Feb-17 15:38:32

I do like Lara but it's quite a new name, so I'm not entirely sure about that one, I love Laurel but husband, says it reminds him of Laurel and Hardy.
My mother just died and she was an L, so it's in remembrance of her, my brother already has a daughter with her name.

Livia?

KlingybunFistelvase Fri 10-Feb-17 15:39:31

Ah that's a nice gesture to your late mum OP. flowers for you.

LiviaBC Fri 10-Feb-17 15:40:37

Not quite sure how this works, hope I'm answering you, thank you, Just getting my head around 'congratulations' ! Sleepless nights, here we go again!

Laura
Lettice
Lavinia
Lola

Does it have to be 'L' for your Mum? Could it be a name that means remembrance or similar?
Rosemary
Cora

Or after a loved quality of hers?
Grace
Patience
Hope etc.

NapQueen Fri 10-Feb-17 16:00:23

Could you use her middle name or a variation on her surname?

PaintingOwls Fri 10-Feb-17 16:01:07

Lana? Lacey? Lynette? Leia? Leah? Lillian? Lorelei? Lucinda? And Jade as a curveball.

3littlebadgers Fri 10-Feb-17 16:01:25

Lauren is a lovely name.

Layla

Lydia

TheLongRains Fri 10-Feb-17 16:01:43

Lucia? I know two absolutely lovely, grown up Lucias - one is "loo-chee-ah", the other is "loo-sha"

And congrats!

AmyInTheBoonies Fri 10-Feb-17 16:02:01

Lucinda would fit well with your other names. It doesn't have to be shortened to Lucy.

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Fri 10-Feb-17 16:19:36

If your brother has used your DM's name and you can't decide on a name beginning with L, maybe there was a particular flower or place or song she liked...?

I like Lara - is it that new? (Thinking of heroine of "Dr Zhivago" published 1957, rather than Lara Croft).
