A sister for Rebecca and Naomi

We're delighted to be having another girl but struggling slightly with names! I'm not too bothered about the sibling names going together but it gives an idea of the kind of names we like.

I have a list but nothing is grabbing me really -

Zoe
Nina (too close to Naomi?)
Tamsin
Juliet
Freya
Anna

I love Sara but annoyingly can't use it. Same with Ruth.

Any opinions/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Lovely names. I agree nina sounds like a pet name for Naomi (or, it could be)

I love Anna, what about Susannah is a bible name too so, it seems to go better with Naomi and Rebecca. I like Juliet too but Susannah goes better with Naomi and Rebecca

JustHavinABreak Sun 19-Feb-17 11:17:25

Elizabeth?

P1nkP0ppy Sun 19-Feb-17 11:18:07

I love Juliet.
How about Amelia, Elizabeth or Briony?

Esther goes well

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Sun 19-Feb-17 11:18:50

Judith
Esther
Samantha

I particularly like

Anna
Juliet

I would suggest:

Leah
Christina
Serena
Julia

I was going to say Ruth

Rachel
Catherine
Eleanor
Abigail
Miriam

How about Louisa or Phoebe.

NotYoda Sun 19-Feb-17 11:19:26

Miriam

Susannah is my mum's name grin not sure I could get into the family politics of naming after people.

It's just occurred to me that we actually never really call Naomi her full name. She is normally Nomi so Nina is definitely out.

NotYoda Sun 19-Feb-17 11:23:49

This might be a bit out there, but I really love Farah

NotYoda Sun 19-Feb-17 11:25:26

or Farrah

OddShoe Sun 19-Feb-17 11:26:25

I like Serena. Elizabeth is maybe a bit too royal. Nice though.

theclockticksslowly Sun 19-Feb-17 11:27:51

Claire?

Of your list, Tamsin is my favourite to go with your other names. Followed closely by Juliet.
Other suggestions which seem along the same lines would be Erin, seren, Serena, Abigail, Esther, Gemma, Taryn.
I agree Nina, although a lovely name is too close to Naomi.

Foureyesarebetterthantwo Sun 19-Feb-17 11:35:29

I think Laura would go well with these names, not sure why!

glammanana Sun 19-Feb-17 11:39:08

Abigail is a favourite of mine
Sophia
Juliet

Loungingbutnotforlong Sun 19-Feb-17 11:42:57

Rachel or Ruth

OddShoe Sun 19-Feb-17 11:45:35

A lot of the girls at my school were called Laura and Claire so they feel a bit dated to me. Same could be said for Rebecca though!

Abigale is lovely but it's the name of a close family member so we can't use it.

Esther has been vetoed by dp, too biblical he says. Not sure where he thinks Rebecca and Naomi originate from grin

Rachel. Great name (bit biased!)
Suits any age.

TheCakes Sun 19-Feb-17 12:52:39

Martha.

Maroonie Sun 19-Feb-17 12:53:48

Rachel goes nicely and fits the bible theme
