Hello smile I'm 30 weeks and after some advice on sibling names please.. DD is Matilda Grace and we have a boys name sorted (Sebastian George) but girl names are proving more difficult!!

So far, we have the following ideas but not sure I love any of them in the way I love DD's name just yet:

Rosie Annabelle
Rosie Florence
Poppy Annabelle
Poppy Charlotte
Ivy Florence
Florence Ivy

I'd appreciate opinions on the above please or any other suggestions smile

TIA xx

I think Matilda and Florence go beautifully, they both sound of the same sort of era to me whereas Rosie and Poppy sound a bit more modern, and also a bit less formal.

Florence Ivy is great.

I like Florence but think Florence Annabel is the better combination.

I also think Tabitha, Jemima and Esme work well with Matilda.

We have similar tastes in baby names OP! grin

Personally, I prefer Annabelle to Florence and would choose either Poppy Annabelle, Annabelle Ivy or Ivy Annabelle.

How about Violet or Lydia?

Out of your selection I like Florence the best.

Some other ideas:
Olive
Beatrix
Eliza
Imogen

I like the name Matilda a lot. If I had two daughters I would call them Theodora and Matilda. Teddy and Tilly/Tilda.

Hope you find a name you love soon smile

I have a Matilda and a Charlotte Isabel.

Beautiful name by the way and congratulations.

Thank you all so much, so helpful!! Some really nice ideas here smile

I think Harriet and Charlotte are going on the list and there are some lovely middle name options I hadn't thought of either. Florence seems a popular option, I'm just not sure I love the potential nicknames that come with it enough so need to have a good think about that.

Time for a chat with DH to see if we can get this list narrowed down even though I think I'm going to need to make it longer with some of your lovely suggestions!!

Thanks again smile

My Charlotte got called Lottie automatically my other DD gets Tilly although I do know a little girl who goes by Charlotte-Rose.

I really like Harriet it's quite uncommon but lovely.

velocitygir1 Mon 20-Mar-17 20:56:00

Martha Jane would be my choice.

I like Florence as you can us florrie as a pet name :-)
