Our baby girl is due in 3 weeks and we cannot agree a name. What do you think of these (her middle name will be Rhian):


We're Welsh so there are a couple of Welsh names on our list - Thank you!

I think Etta and Elin are my favourites on that list. They are all beautiful and unusual tho and I really like them all!

My favourite is Clara.

Clara or Beatrix

I love Betsan, but it doesn't work well with Rhian.

From your list I prefer Elgin or Ottile.

However can I throw Delyth into the mix .....?

Elgin? Oops .......Elin!!!

I think Ottilie or Darcey go best with Rhian as a middle name.

The name I like best on it's own is Clara.

I think the problem for me with some of them is that the names that end in A seem to run into Rhian. This is, of course, only a problem if you say them out loud together.

All those names are pretty but I'm a great believer in choosing a name that has no ambiguity with the spelling. I work in a doctors surgery and deal with all the unusual names and indeed, commoner names unusually spelt, all the time. If people have to ask you, and ultimately your daughter all her life, how to spell her name, it becomes a bit tiresome! However, that's only my opinion! Hence, Martha would be my favourite!

Martha or Clara

This is very helpful, thanks everyone! We have a niece called Dela so unfortunately we've ruled out Delyth, lovely Welsh name.

Etta. Beautiful.

Love Martha - have only known a couple and they were both really lovely people so have positive connections ..also Clara - think Darcey goes really nicely with Rhian

JanuaryJuniper Fri 24-Mar-17 18:37:42

Ottilie or Beatrix both beautiful
