Hi all,

Dh and I are a little bit gothy. Well, goths that grew up and got jobs and whatnot. But still really like all things dark, mystical and Victoriana.

We're expecting a little girl soon but still at the brainstorming stage for names.

So far we like:

Ophelia
Briar
Hazel
Beatrice
Cecily
Opal
Phaedra
Violet
Morgan / Morgana

Don't love anything yet.

Can you think of anything we might like? Not comedy witch-style, but would fit our taste. Middle names too please - have no family ones that we'd like to use.

DS is Vincent Zephyr.

Work with an absolute bitch called Lucinda. Makes it a no go!

It’s quite common but every time I hear the name Charlotte The Cure song plays in my head... Charlotte Sometimes. Love that song.

Prudence
Moonchild 😊
Lucretia

Or any traditional name ending in an -a sound has a Victorian ring to it IMO

Raahh Wed 01-Nov-17 22:52:16

Eloise? (The Damned)

Came on to say Eve- at a push, Regan, after the lead singer, Julianne Regan ( I loved All About Eve). It's quite Exorcist-y though. grinScarlet (after their second album).

I've always pronounced it So-FRO-nee-uh, but not 100% sure that's accurate...
