Names for 9 year old girls

Hi everyone,

I'm working on my NanoWriMo project right now (if you haven't heard of it - you write a novel in November) and stuck on some character names!

I need a generic and common (as in not unusual) name for one 9 year old, and another very flouncy and unusual one (poncey, probably). With the second one I'm looking for multiple names to combine, so think a first name and one or two middles.

Would love to hear suggestions - I teach as well, so I'm really trying to avoid any names of kids I know, I don't want to model it off them. I've tried out a few names but for various reasons they werent quite 'right' iyswim.

All suggestions welcome!

The ten most common girls' names for babies born in the UK in 2008 - which is right for a nine-year-old - were: Olivia, Ruby, Emily, Grace, Jessica, Chloe, Sophie, Lily, Amelia, Evie. So I'd pick one of those for the more generic name.

For a common name how about:

Molly
Hannah
Leah
Laura

Nicole

Lily, Ellie, Ella, Megan, Ruby, Isabella, Olivia, Sophie, Chloe, Katie, Hannah, Grace, Milly - all quite popular amongst 9 year olds or thereabouts of my acquaintance.

For flouncy how about Gabriella, Delilah, Marianne, Genevieve, Persephone, Angelica, Antoinette, Aurelia, Camilla, Bianca, Celeste, Florence, Odette, Collette, Romilly, Tabitha, Claudia, Verity, Vivienne, Helena, Marissa, Cressida, Jemima, Cosima, Arabella, Anoushka, Lucinda, Venetia, Perdita, Odillie.

I’d combine a couple of those:
Florence Collette
Anoushka Vivienne
Cosima Odette
Camilla Primrose
Romilly Rose
Arabella Celeste

Lily Ruby Georgia for the 9yo

Posy Clementina for the posh one

Or Ottillie Xanthe Rose

RavenWings Sun 29-Oct-17 15:43:58

Thanks all! I think I've narrowed down the first girls name (I think Sophie or Ella), but nothing jumping out for the second child - she might just be Clarissa until I get a better feel for the character grin Clarissa isn't the right name, but something close to the vibe I want.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Sun 29-Oct-17 16:16:06

See I think Sophie suits both posh and children from those working class families.

RavenWings Sun 29-Oct-17 16:22:39

Well, I wouldn't say I'm looking for a posh vs...er, unposh... name, just common vs very unusual and flowery. Second girls name is one for those with notions, as we say in Ireland!

Sophie, Ella etc are ordinary names nowadays, there's lots of them, so they fit the criteria smile And there is something about those two that match the character best!

Petalflowers Sun 29-Oct-17 16:25:14

Flouncy name:

Tabitha Mae Rose
Priscilla Mary
Lettice Maud
Fenella Elouise
Queenie Nancy

Petalflowers Sun 29-Oct-17 16:26:32

Rosemary
Rosalind
Marguerite
Bluebell
Posy
Jasmine

MrsBirdseye Sun 29-Oct-17 16:35:25

Kiki and Augustine
