Uncommon but not unusual girls names?

DS has an uncommon boys name, it's a name that you'll have heard but you probably won't know very many if any.

Now we need a girls name. We previously loved Imogen but it seems to be everywhere now.

We quite like short names.

Anne
June
Rachel
Jane
Dora
Sally
Fern
Freda
Marie
Vera

Not sure what your style is, but those are all short and sensible names which are now pretty unusual for babies.

They're all a bit, I dunno, receptionist in her 50's type of names.

I like Effie, Etta, Beatrix, Juliet, if that helps?

MrsMargeSimpson Thu 14-Sep-17 09:55:10

Use Etta!! I wish I had, but DH just wouldn't budge sad DD now has a very similar name that does suit her, but it's not what I would have chosen if it was solely up to me.

Felicity. Miranda. Eleni. Linnet. Delia

Are some lovely short names that are complete as well, wouldn't use Etta myself unless it was short for somthing, I always think it's better to give them a name that gives them options.

I love love love Etta!

DH vetoed for our DD but I really did try for it.

Chaffinch4 Thu 14-Sep-17 10:26:27

How about Iris or Tessa, they are both uncommon but not unusual.

I also like Anwen but we don't have a drop of Welsh blood between us so I was over ruled!

I met a little girl called Etnie which I thought was lovely!

Dollyollie Thu 14-Sep-17 11:14:33

We're having a DD in January so far I like

Phoebe

I do like uncommon names but don't want her to end up with something that sounds like it's been made up
