So I'm laying on the induction ward for the third day in a row, hoping that today will be the day that DD2 arrives! DD1 is Alice Robyn and we're still struggling to decide on a name for this little one. She will be taken straight to nicu due to health problems so we want to name her as soon as she's born.
Please help me!

Our favorites are..

Clara Willow - though we have some hesitance that the inlaw's suffolk accent might turn this into Clarrrrrrr!

Rose Amelie - but our double barreled surname starts with T-W, would she get RAT initials?!

Rose Matilda - though OH doesn't love this as much as Rose Amelie

Any other ideas or opinions? Feel like we're overthinking our choices as we pace the corridors!

Clara Amelie?

Matilda Rose?

As pretty as it is, I’m not keen on Rose as a first name. It seems a bit bland. Like girls of my generation called Jane.

Clara is nice but not Willow.

Amelie Clara maybe?

And yes, most importantly, I hope you & your baby are well.

Rose Amalie is lovely. Doesn’t matter about the initials! Good luck. X

I like all of them :-)

Rose Amelie your surname is T-W so RAT wouldnt be that obvious and even if it was im not convinced it's an issue.

Rose is gorgeous as A first name

Good luck

Clara Willow is beautiful....ha ha in the Suffolk accent ....DH is from Suffolk and I'm from Liverpool..we struggled with names!

Good luck! Hope all goes well and she arrives in good shape.

I'd go with Clara Matilda. There are too many Amelies and Roses about, and to me Willow is a cat's name (sorry!). Clara is starting a 'moment', I think, but you're still ahead of the trend.

HeteronormativeHaybales Wed 04-Oct-17 07:34:32

If you end up set on Rose as a first name, how about Rosa? Gives it a bit more substance.

ChocolateCrunch Wed 04-Oct-17 07:35:30


I like Clara from your list. Or how about Roseanna?

Good luck, hope little one arrives soon! x

I like all your girl's names. Alice Robyn is a lovely name.

Rose seems a bit boring as it is overused as a middle name. And Amelie mixes in with all the Amelias etc for me.

I would go with Clara Willow.

I like Clara Wren but it may seem too much like a bird theme with your Daughter's name!

Ceto Wed 04-Oct-17 07:37:30

Amelie Rose. ART is a bit more acceptable by way of initials, and you can still call her Rose.

PersisFord Wed 04-Oct-17 07:46:11

Clara Grace
Grace Matilda
Martha Clare
Genevieve Clare
Edith Rose

Good luck!

Rosa Clara

Another vote for Matilda Rose. Clara is a beautiful name too. Good luck today!

NorthernLurker Wed 04-Oct-17 08:07:09

What about Rose Emilie? Avoids the initial issue. Good luck!

Trailedanderror Wed 04-Oct-17 08:08:36

Lovely names. How today goes well Nameyflowers

Ilovewillow Wed 04-Oct-17 08:12:43

Clara Willow but I may be a little biased! Hope you get some long awaited good news today - good luck!

PotteringAlong Wed 04-Oct-17 08:14:43

I was going to say Matilda Rose as I read the op and then saw lots of people had beaten me to it!

Hope today goes well flowers

❤️ Clara Willow.

Rose is a bit of a default middle name but Rosa lovely as a first name. Or Rosalind.
