Due in just over a week and still can't agree on names so would really appreciate some advice please! DD is Matilda, known as Tilly as well as Matilda.


Daisy - this is my favourite but worry it's too girly?
Martha - same initial as Matilda, is this an issue?
Rose - no concerns on this name but don't love it as much as Daisy


Sebastian - love Seb or Sebbie when he's younger, but worry we'd never actually use 'Sebastian', only the nicknames
Charles (Charlie) - worry this is too popular

Would really appreciate advice on the above names please or any other suggestions as we're really struggling!

Thank you smile

Love Daisy and Sebastian with Matilda.

I think Rose goes best with Matilda. Martha is maybe a bit matchy? That might just be me.

Daisy is nice and it sounds like it's your favourite. I don't think it's too girly as it's quite a classic name.

The only thing that might put me off, is that I know loads of little girls called Daisy. There is always one, or sometimes two, in every toddler group I've been to, but I think that may be to do with where I live. It's quite a small town, so maybe I just keep meeting the same Daisies!

Been a long time since I had to choose names but from yours I would say

Daisy for a daughter
Charles for a son .

Rockaby Fri 19-May-17 10:43:48

Oh forgot the boys! I prefer Sebastian, but Charles is nice too. Coincidentally, I know two families with a Daisy and a Charlie in each!

Daisy Martha/ Martha Rose and Sebastian Charles are fab names.

Sorry, no help at all!

CrispyBathTowel Fri 19-May-17 10:48:35

Martha and Sebastian would be my choice.

Kalina1 Fri 19-May-17 10:55:38

Matilda and Sebastian by a long shot. I am also considering Sebastian but in contrast to you I dislike the short versions and prefer the full name but worry that people will never use it...

Daisy, and Sebastian or Charles. I love Martha but I agree it's a bit matchy-matchy with Matilda.

I love Daisy and Sebastian.

Rose and Charles

Matilda and Martha sounds awesome together!!!

AdaColeman Fri 19-May-17 12:55:52

Daisy and Sebastian are both fabulous names.

Rose is very popular and has been for some time, as is Charles/Charlie, and not keen on Martha, sounds very harsh to me.

auntym Fri 19-May-17 13:06:51

From you list I'd pick Rose and Charles (Charlie). Good luck OP!

CricketRuntAndRashers Fri 19-May-17 13:19:06

Daisy is nice and Rose is lovely. I don't like Martha.

Sebastian and Charles are both very nice. But I really prefer Charles, Sebastian is very popular imo.

FfionFlorist Fri 19-May-17 14:12:01

Daisy (but I may be a little biased) and Charles. I also like Martha.

Bin85 Fri 19-May-17 14:46:22

Daisy and Sebastian

( yes 2 M's will be a nuisance think shopping lists , post when they are older etc)

twinjocks Fri 19-May-17 16:16:33

I love your girls' names and would go with Daisy (my Daisy is 22!). Of your boys' names, I prefer Charlie even though there are lots about. Sebastian has a different feel imo.

Jooni Fri 19-May-17 16:23:11

I'd go with Daisy and Sebastian. They go really nicely with Matilda - have the same "vibe" and similar in terms of popularity.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 19-May-17 17:47:28

Daisy of Sebastian, both lovely.

ItsAYesFromMe Fri 19-May-17 21:08:09

Martha and Sebastian.
Charles is a bit old man ish and Daisy, Rose, Lily etc are boring and overdone now. I know about 8 Lily, Lily-Mays etc under 10.

buttercup54321 Fri 19-May-17 21:30:15

Daisy and Charles are best.

FroodGloriousFrood Fri 19-May-17 23:17:49

Rose and Sebastian are my favorites. Lovely names.

shewhoshall Fri 19-May-17 23:30:05

What about Charles, nickname Arlo to avoid the many Charlie's?

The Matilda I know's sister is Poppy

HildaOg Fri 19-May-17 23:46:31

What about Rosalie for a girl? Or Roslyn.
I prefer Daisy to Rose.

Charles for a boy definitely.
