Struggling to decide on a girls name...

(28 Posts)

Had lots of boys names but alas it's another girl and we're struggling! Would love some opinions on our list of girls names to go with sibling Lila.

We initially wanted another L name but can't find one we like, and we prefer shorter names (2 syllables).

Bonnie (DH doesn't like)
Indie (DH doesn't like)
Mira
Edie
Elodie (maybe bit long)
Jolie
Maisie
Ivy
Lottie (ls this too popular at the moment?)

Any thoughts and suggestions greatly appreciated smile

Lola?
Daisy?
Elsie?

I like Elodie best of your list followed by Lottie

Bonnie - Don't like this one, even with the cooler Faye Dunaway Bonnie & Clyde associations. I know at least 5 dogs named Bonnie (all Border Collies or Cattle Dogs). Plus I went to school with an obnoxious Bonnie.

Indie - Insanely over popular at the moment. I know three born in 2016, and a fourth called Indie-Rose.

Mira - Is this pronounced like Meer-ah or My-rah? If the former, it may get confused for the word "mirror", but it's not bad. If the latter, avoid. Myra is forever tainted by Hindley.

Edie - Love this.

Elodie (maybe bit long) - Love this too.

Jolie - Not a fan. Too heavily associated with Angelina.

Maisie - This is sweet. Perhaps you'll like Daisy too, which is similar?

Ivy - Love this. My favourite on your list.

Lottie (ls this too popular at the moment?) - I love Lottie. I briefly considered this for DC4, but we have a Charlotte in the family, so it's too similar. I like it more than Charlotte though.

And these are some 2-syllable names I think go well with Lila:

- Anna
- Amber
- Bella
- Chloe
- Emmy
- Freya
- Hannah
- Lucy
- Mia
- Ruby
- Sadie
- Sarah
- Stella
- Violet
- Zoe

Thanks everyone for your honest opinions and your suggestions, have noted them all!

Mira would be pronounced 'Meer-ra', we had thought of the confusion with mirror and especially because living in Australia we have to take into account the differing pronunciations!

Do you think Edie is a viable nickname for Elodie?

I named my daughter Darcy willow 9 weeks ago 😊

I assumed Mira was Myra too. Don't like Ivy at all and dont understand its popularity.

Love all your other names!

I like Bonnie, Edie and Lottie. Lottie isn't that popular on its own, but I guess with the number of Charlottes who go by Lottie there are probably quite a few around.

How about Lumi?
