I like lots of those!

Edie Mariella
Nina Frances
Eliza Margot
Mabel Frances
Eden Eliza
Eliza Eden
Cora Sadie
Cora Frances

Frances is actually a good middle name fit for most of the names on your list.

I like Dakota Blythe.

Just a word of warning about using Eden, I have a friend who did and please just think carefully about your surname with it. It's one of those words that is so often use in the names of old people's homes and roads that with quite a lot of surnames it can actually sound like a building. Trust me, I know someone who did it.

I like Eliza Blythe and Nina Margot.

Thank you helpful lot! Loving the sound of Margot Blythe and Marnie Blythe.

Interesting point about Eden... Don't think it would be an issue here. Also feel it works best as a middle name with some of the others on the list. TBH not a strong contender for me but still love the name.

MissAlabamaWhitman Thu 17-Aug-17 23:02:23

Eden is a boy's name to me.
All the one I know of are boys/men. Please don't do that to your DD.

What about Marielle Cora?

All the best people are called Marielle you know?

Failing that then Eliza Frances.

soupforbrains Thu 17-Aug-17 23:05:42

The Eden I know is a girl but she has a surname which is along the lines of Manor... only it sounds more old people's homey.

MissAlabamaWhitman Thu 17-Aug-17 23:10:12

I know an Eden Mcguigan, Eden Jones and an Eden Killoren. All males. And there's Eden Hazard too.

I think boys can get away with Eden, girls not so much.

Floralnomad Thu 17-Aug-17 23:10:43

Sadie Dakota
Mariella Blythe ( although I'd be concerned about an Ella / Ellie shortening)

WardrobeMilkStress Thu 17-Aug-17 23:16:17

grin Eden Mcguigan!

floral ughhh I KNOW! That might break my heart - only because I love Mariella. Nothing aginst Ella or Ellie.

cece Thu 17-Aug-17 23:16:25

I prefer Eden as a girls name - sounds too feminine to me for a boy.

Sadie Rae
Margot Mabel

MissAlabamaWhitman Thu 17-Aug-17 23:20:54

I'm a Marielle obviously
I've never been known as Ellie/Ella awful names my OH calls me Mazz.

WardrobeMilkStress Thu 17-Aug-17 23:21:40

Mabel Mariella

Frances Marielle

WardrobeMilkStress Fri 18-Aug-17 13:16:43

Far fetched to have Cora as NN for Dakota?

WardrobeMilkStress Fri 18-Aug-17 13:29:21

Does Mabel Blythe work??

Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 18-Aug-17 13:47:36

I would think Koko would be a nick name for Dakota.
Mabel Blythe is okay, but a bit 'bbb', if you know what I mean, but she'll hardly be using both names at the same time anyway. 😄

WardrobeMilkStress Fri 18-Aug-17 13:54:10

Koko reminds me of the Kardashians! hmm

Surname is also B... Would that be criminal?
