This is the final 3... middle name will be Rose. Surname is short, one syllable beginning with B.

Isla Rose.

They are all lovely though

... and I like Zoey!

Not so sure on Zoey Rose though - lots of "o" sounds, it's maybe a bit repetitive. Is Rose a family name?

jamaicanbobsledder Fri 28-Apr-17 20:21:25

Yes Jooni it's a family name

Mollie85 Fri 28-Apr-17 20:26:37

Isla rose
Zoë Rosa (the y seems redundant - esp if you are using an umlaut)
However (of course) you may prefer it but in my opinion it looks out of place!

Congrats on your pregnancy and do let us know what you choose grin

Zoe Rose

Zoe is nice.

Isla Rose

Ditsy1980 Fri 28-Apr-17 21:52:09

I like Zoey Rose or Isla Rose

DramaAlpaca Fri 28-Apr-17 21:53:35

All nice, but my favourite is Zoe. I don't like it spelled Zoey though.

Zoe! (sorry, not helping)

But if Zoe isn't an option? Definitely Zoey.

I really like Zoe(y) Rose.

Ojoj1974 Fri 28-Apr-17 22:16:39

I'm afraid I really dislike Zoe or Zoey.

Zoe Rosa

Yika Fri 28-Apr-17 22:21:53

Zoey, such a lovely name and meaning and I like the unusual spelling. Flows well with rose.

SuperBeagle Fri 28-Apr-17 22:25:01

I like Layla and Zoe (not Zoey, the y is completely unnecessary). I don't like Isla.

I think Layla Rose sounds better than Zoe Rose though.

CakeRattleandRoll Sat 29-Apr-17 00:04:21

Zoe. Without the y.

17caterpillars1mouse Sat 29-Apr-17 07:53:28

Zoey is lovely (this is my favourite spelling too) Isla is all common, and Isla Rose even more so

I also know several Layla's and I'm not a fan

Zoey sounds a bit fiesty and classy (similar to how Zara sounds) I like it

Irishal68 Sat 29-Apr-17 07:59:25

Isla - classy and beautiful. I also love Iona - Celtic maid I guess! Congratulations 😊

Brighteyes27 Sat 29-Apr-17 08:10:46

To me Rose is quite a traditional name but personally I think of Zoe as a 80's name and too modern to go before it, Layla sounds too chavvy like Chanice Alexis etc, Isla is my favourite out of those names but I don't know whether it sounds like a name that's maybe trying too hard if you see what I mean.
Names I feel that go with Rose are more traditional names such as Mary Rose, Lily Rose, Catherine/Kathrerine Rose, Charlotte Rose, Elizabeth Rose etc etc.

jamaicanbobsledder Sat 29-Apr-17 09:37:50

Thanks - that is really helpful. My preference is Zoey, Isla then Layla so seems to be the general consensus so far!

Any other suggestions would be welcomed too smile

FeedTheSharkAndItWillBite Sat 29-Apr-17 09:57:57

Other suggestions? What about:
Chloe, Clio, Noa, Amy, Faye, Maya, Tansy, Holly, Aria, Ada, Kasia, Iona, Ailsa, Una, Ula, Nova, Lila, Lilac, Lyra, Zinnia, Zoya, Zusa, Ella or Suri?

But I really like Zoe(y) smile

Isla Rose or Lila Rose
