Juniper
Evangeline
Lilias

Jane
Violetta
Constance

confused Compromise seems hard

Evangaline Jane.

17caterpillars1mouse Wed 10-May-17 15:23:57

I like Evangeline from yours

But Violetta and Constance from his (love Constance)

CoralieConfused Wed 10-May-17 15:25:42

I'm trying to like Constance and I just can't - I really do feel that I should

Awwlookatmybabyspider Wed 10-May-17 15:31:51

I'm sorry aside from Evangeline. I don't like any of your names. What the fresh hell is Lillas.
I only Jane out of your DPS names.
Constance is very very harsh. I like Connie, though.
Compromising names.
Eva-Jane
Lily-Jane
Violet-Jane

Jane Evangeline?

Awwlookatmybabyspider Wed 10-May-17 15:33:43

Ooh touchy.

CoralieConfused Wed 10-May-17 15:34:17

Jane is quite nice as a middle name

Awwlookatmybabyspider Wed 10-May-17 15:34:44

I'm.sure you didn't mean to be so rude

HeyCat Wed 10-May-17 15:37:00

Juniper is the best.

Evangeline is likely to shorten to Evie and there are loads of evies.

Lilias is fine, poster above was being rude, but it's not my face.

I like Juniper Jane, sounds like a marvel character and has a good rhythm to it.

I don't like Violeta or Constance at all tbh.

twinjocks Wed 10-May-17 15:37:02

I quite like Juniper Jane, as long as your surname doesn't also start with J!!

EatsShitAndLeaves Wed 10-May-17 15:37:04

I can only think of juniper berries and ginnow!

So I'd avoid that.

I like Evangeline and Constance - but not together.

Either of the above with Jane as a middle name.

BadToTheBone Wed 10-May-17 15:37:20

Your dhs list is much nicer than yours. Constance is the best.

CoralieConfused Wed 10-May-17 15:38:47

I'm.sure you didn't mean to be so rude

Oh dear. I think I did

BertrandRussell Wed 10-May-17 15:39:30

Jane's lovely and really unusual.

Love Constance- only didn't use it because I don't like Connie in a Yorkshire accent......

CoralieConfused Wed 10-May-17 15:40:26

Juniper Jane does have a nice ring! Last name begins with B grin

Rockaby Wed 10-May-17 15:40:40

I like Jane, Juniper, Evangeline and Violetta (not helpful, sorry)!

Think my favourites are Juniper and Violetta.

NerrSnerr Wed 10-May-17 15:41:12

The only name I like in both lists is Jane.

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Wed 10-May-17 15:41:20

I like Juniper Jane.

BertrandRussell Wed 10-May-17 15:43:37

Evangeline is a bit of a mouthful. Juniper is a bit bonkers. Violetta is needlessly operatic. Lilias sounds like a maid in a Scottish period drama.

Rockaby Wed 10-May-17 15:43:40

DH's cousin is called Lillas and some people like to take the piss by calling her Lillets hmm.

I prefer Lilac or Lily fwiw, but nothing wrong with Lillas.

Leviticus Wed 10-May-17 15:43:50

Jane is lovely! I don't think I've ever met a child Jane.

From your list Evangeline is quite nice but would end up as Evie I imagine, which is lovely but quite popular.

Go for Jane.

CoralieConfused Wed 10-May-17 15:43:53

The only name I like in both lists is Jane. Nooooo shock

Awwlookatmybabyspider Wed 10-May-17 15:44:04

We're here as adults to give our opinions. Which I assume is what you want. Whether they're negative or positive. You can't throw your rattle out your pram anytime someone says they don't like a name.
You mightn't like my name choices, but I can take it. I'm a big girl and This is not a pony club.
I have no intentions of turning this into a bun fight.
I wish you well and congratulations.
