Our first DD is due in 2 and a half weeks and we are still arguing over baby names ... please inspire me!

I like names that are quite strong sounding. And modern without being 'Chavy'

Potentials are
Scarlett
India
Zara
Grace
Sophia
Seraphina (OH hates this so totally out of the question but I love it)

Please hit me with suggestions of similar names!

Zara is a great name! As is Cara! Have you considered that?

Don't go for Sophia-yes it's modern but soo overused at the moment and as a result not really a "strong" name IMO!

Hayls17 Sun 02-Apr-17 20:44:48

Love Cara / Kara but it doesn't go with our surname. Have had to rule out so many names due to surname which makes it even more difficult!

CanaryFish Sun 02-Apr-17 23:59:43

Can you give an example of what your surname is
The first letter etc ? Ending syllable it might make it easier smile

Hayls17 Mon 03-Apr-17 12:11:00

Surname is Airey

elQuintoConyo Mon 03-Apr-17 12:14:19

Mary grin

Sorry! Couldn't resist!

I think the name should end in a consonant as any vowel would be awakward:

Kara Airey
Martha Airey
Zara Airey
Evie Airey

...do you see what I mean?

auntym Mon 03-Apr-17 12:28:47

Grace from your list jumps out, by far the nicest. Good luck OP!

HeteronormativeHaybales Mon 03-Apr-17 13:25:13

Frances
Cleo
Beatrice
Rowan as per a pp
Meriel
really radical... Jane

I'd avoid a -y sound and probably -a too.
