Opinions appreciated , or other names similar ?
I already have a Margot, Olive & an Alba

IrisMumToBe Fri 17-Nov-17 06:35:08

I love Audrey or Madison. smile

Minster2012 Fri 17-Nov-17 06:45:56

I think it goes with your other names lovely 😁

Nooo. Agnes is so dreary.

Agatha is fractionally better.

TheGirlOnTheLanding Fri 17-Nov-17 06:47:29

Aren't Margot and Agnes two of the girls from Despicable Me? That would put me off. Also, don't like Aggie as a nickname.

icantgetnosleep5 Fri 17-Nov-17 06:52:35

Crap, hdnt thought about the despicable me characters! Knowing my luck they'd bring out yet another film right before my due date too!
Not a fan of Aggie confused but I like Ness/ Nessa

I really really like Agnes! I don't like Aggie but you could use Agnes couldn't you?

DD has a name that is often shortened/has a common nickname. We have never shortened it or used anything other than her given name. If anyone calls her anything else she will tell them 'my name is 'given name' ', always has done, ever since she could speak!

How about Nerissa, which could shorten to Nessie?

(though that would make your full brood spell out MOAN, so you could never use just initials in a card)

AnyaMoondial Fri 17-Nov-17 07:07:36

Ooooh Agatha is fabulous, I absolutely love it!!! I can't think of an nn though.

Potcallingkettle Fri 17-Nov-17 07:10:51

How about Vanessa. I know a lovely six year old called this with Nessa for every day.

I like Agnes it has a similar feel to Enid and Edith both which are names i also like. I like Agatha too. Strong, fiesty, battleaxe names lol

Lobsterquadrille2 Fri 17-Nov-17 07:35:01

What about Elsie? I love your other names but Agnes sounds much "harder" somehow, whereas even the hard "g" in Margot doesn't have the same feel because of the softer second syllable.

What about Ines? I’ve got an Italian Granny-in-law called Ines & she tells me it’s Italian form of Agnes

magpiemay Fri 17-Nov-17 07:49:09

I love Agnes!

bridgetreilly Fri 17-Nov-17 08:38:19

I really like Agnes and Agatha.

You could also consider Annis.

Branleuse Fri 17-Nov-17 08:49:56

I quite like it

HolyShet Fri 17-Nov-17 08:53:04

Love all your DDs names
LOVE Agnes
My fantasy fourth child is called Astrid, similar vibe

HolyShet Fri 17-Nov-17 08:54:23

Also Isolde/Iseult or Angharad

(Ness for a nn is cute for Agnes)

HolyShet Fri 17-Nov-17 08:55:14

Ursula

nn Sula

Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 17-Nov-17 12:28:05

Margot, Olive, Alba and Stella.

CakeRattleandRoll Fri 17-Nov-17 12:34:56

I really like Agnes.

Mooey89 Fri 17-Nov-17 12:40:20

What about Iris/Ivy/Violet/Agatha/Isla/Betsy/Eliza...
I love all the older sounding names but when I was younger we lived in a pub and it had a (or we were told it had!) ghost - and she was called Agnes! So no no no to Agnes from me!

TatianaLarina Fri 17-Nov-17 13:01:58

I prefer the French pronunciation but I like the English version all the same.

Can’t bear Agatha though - ugly.

PandaCat Fri 17-Nov-17 16:18:03

I think it goes well with your other names but as someone else mentioned the sisters in Despicable Me would put me off.

I like Ivy, and Vanessa nn Nessa sounds quite nice too.

undertheradarplease Fri 17-Nov-17 18:34:45

I have a Margo (no T) and Agnes was my plan b. I adore it, and Aggie is a really cute nn.
