As the title says really, name for DD2 due in next few weeks, to go with sister Evie smile

In order of preference for me: Thea, Ruby, Cleo (makes me think of Carry on Cleo or Cleo Rocos)

Cleo and Ruby are lovely, but I think Thea goes better with Evie when you say Evie & ...... iuswim. All beautiful names though.

Sophronia Tue 11-Apr-17 21:23:52

I think Thea goes best with Evie

I like Cleo! Its cute! But would probably go for Cleone (pronounced klee-a-nee) and shorten to Cleo then she has a choice as she gets older which name to go by professionally etc.

Thanks guys...my preference is Cleo but everyone we've mentioned it to tends to pull a face or say 'like the car' which puts me off! Dh preference is Thea but I'm just not sure if it's super popular right now (although Evie turned out to be really popular too so I guess that doesn't overly matter!)

Cleo every time! It's lovely!

I love Cleo, my DNan used to call me Cleo as she couldn't get her head round my too-modern sounding name (Chloe)

Thea - would you pronounce it Tee-ah? Tay-ah? I know a French Thea, I think it's spelt Théa and it's lovely

Mamma2missEvie Tue 11-Apr-17 21:43:30

I think we'd pronounce it Thee-ah hideehigh. It's so hard to choose, with DD1 we were set on her name from early on, I just feel like we should have made a decision on this one by now!

I love Cleo and Thea.

If you like Cleo, how about full name Clementine with nickname Cleo?

Mammatron Tue 11-Apr-17 21:44:22

Thea is lovely!

reuset Tue 11-Apr-17 21:45:46

Thea. Though I know plenty of Evie and Ruby siblings.

Mamma2missEvie Tue 11-Apr-17 21:51:20

Dh really doesn't want a name that can be shortened, DD1 is just Evie, no longer name so clementine and cleone are out unfortunately. Thea is growing on me but I know another young baby who will be at the same nursery also called Thea which does put me off a bit.

SuperBeagle Tue 11-Apr-17 22:48:51

I like Ruby best.

Not a fan of Cleo (reminds me of cats or mystics) or Thea.

DramaAlpaca Tue 11-Apr-17 22:50:45

I like Cleo best with Evie.

Ruby would be my second choice.

I'm not keen on Thea.

PlymouthMaid1 Tue 11-Apr-17 22:52:30

I like all three names.

YoullNeverWeeAlone Tue 11-Apr-17 22:56:16

I wanted a Thea, DH did not.

Cleo is a Siamese cat, but i appreciate that's a personal connection and it is a lovely name.

I know about 400 Rubys (Rubies?!?) - and that is only a slight exaggeration. Don't dislike it at all, but if super popular is a consideration for you, you wouldn't want a Ruby round these parts.

Cleo is a good name for a Siamese cat grin

GirlcalledJames Wed 12-Apr-17 05:54:01

Thea all the way.

Mamma2missEvie Wed 12-Apr-17 06:21:47

Thanks everyone 😊

MrsDrSpencerReid Wed 12-Apr-17 06:43:32

I like Evie and Ruby together smile

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 12-Apr-17 11:19:27

❤️ Ruby.
Evie and Ruby.

I like Cleo... Ruby is really lovely. I personally don't like Thea.

Clio would.be super pretty imo.
