Help! Any more girls names similar to the above and opinions on these please

ABCFamily Wed 17-May-17 06:09:22

I love Sylvia & Clara. I also really like Josephine and shortened version Josie; but I’m not keen on Jo, so I probably wouldn’t use it for that reason. Margot is ok. Laura is probably my least favourite, but still a perfectly good, solid name.

Some other names you might like:
Antonia
Audrey
Beatrice
Claudia
Cora
Eloise
Flora
Frances
Hazel
Helena
Justine
Louisa
Lydia
Matilda
Meredith

If I could change my name it would be to Josephine, nickname Jo, Joey or Josie. So I would choose that from your list!

KoalaDownUnder Wed 17-May-17 07:01:38

Clara or Sylvia.

I don't like Margot, it will always remind me of maggot (sorry).

Scribblegirl Wed 17-May-17 07:05:37

My name is one of the ones in your thread title grin my sister is Jennifer, if that helps!

SirNiallDementia Wed 17-May-17 07:19:51

Clara is my favourite!

How about
Nancy
Unity
Cecelia
Violet
Merle
Lois
Lillian
Jean
Viola

My favourite is Laura, such a underused name these days. It's classy, easy to spell and pronounce.

MiniAlphaBravo Wed 17-May-17 07:34:07

Laura or Josephine: both unusual these days but classic and well known. Josephine has better nickname potential if that bothers you. I know one in early twenties who is Jodie but never Jo.

MiniAlphaBravo Wed 17-May-17 07:34:26

Josie not jodie!!

Love Josephine and Laura.
Suggestions;
Sarah
Adeline (Addie).

Josephine is a fabulous name, which I say with no bias whatsoever. <wink>

I also love Margot and Clara.

On this list you have my maternal grandmother's name, my name, and one of the names I would have used if I had ever had a daughter. You have excellent taste, op ;)

HorraceTheOtter Wed 17-May-17 11:27:40

Sylvia or Josephine, love both of them.

MaroonPencil Wed 17-May-17 11:30:06

Laura -my favourite by far
Sylvia - Not one I would have thought of but the more I think about it the more I like it, Sylvie is a nick nickname too
Clara - Pretty, just a little bit more "meh" than the others for me, but still pretty
Margot - Nice, but would people know not to pronounce the "t"?
Josephine - My least favourite

MaroonPencil Wed 17-May-17 11:30:27

nice nickname! Not nick nickname...

AnotherAnnoyingMother Wed 17-May-17 12:04:57

Thanks everyone - my husband fairly fixed on Laura which I like I just don't Love it - hoping one of us changes our minds about names we love!

CricketRuntAndRashers Wed 17-May-17 12:50:13

Another

My DH is rather fixed on Louisa (which people on mumsnet seem to love as well). I like it but really don't love it...

But Idk, maybe starting from scratch again would be better? That's what we decided to do.

I have a Lara- kind of a compromise of Clara and Laura, although I like both of those too.

auntym Fri 19-May-17 13:14:58

I like Clara or Margo (but spelled without the t) from your list. How about:

Edith
Evelyn
Rose
