We don’t know what we’re having, but have had a boys option chosen since I was pregnant with DD1 (called Jessica) and just can’t seem to find a girl option that we both like!

I’m not keen on flower names e.g. Rosie, Poppy, Daisy

DH doesn’t like what he calls ‘old lady’ names which have become fashionable over recent years e.g. Florence, Edith, Ava, Norah

Neither of us are keen on overly fancy names e.g. Clementine, Arabella, Cordelia

Types of names we like, but don’t think are ‘the one’ include:

Charlotte
Sophie/Sophia
Georgina
Lucy
Emma
Victoria
Elizabeth

Please help! confused confused

I work with a Mariel (Em) - she’s lovely
I went to school with an Arnathea (Thea) who was lots of fun
I admired a girl call Adelaide (Nell)
And our favorite girls next door are Mirna and Nani

Find a favorite person who means something to you - work from that

Emma is a very good shout! I dont know any little Emmas and it is a lovely name. Ditto Claire.

Ramona?
Stella?
Ada? (Probably counts as old lady)
