Hi
Looking for a girls name to go with sibling Eleanor plus another sister (don't want to give her name or might 'out' myself) but name is similar - relatively traditional.
Favourites are Georgina or Georgiana
Others include Marianna or Estella - but latter is probably too close to Eleanor/Ella
Any other similar names?

Georgia?

usernameinfinito Thu 30-Nov-17 15:04:19

Georgette, Georgia?

Georgie? There was a girl in my class at school called that. I mean her real name was Georgina but nobody called her that, like my full name is Victoria but I'm called Vicky.

How about Zoe?

Liliana, Corelie, Charlotte, Geraldine, Madelaine, Cordelia

Yes, thinking Georgina or Georgiana - shortened to Georgie which do you prefer - Georgianna has slightly got the edge I think.

I love Georgette. Harriet goes nicely with Eleanor imo.

Eleanor and Marianna sound almost like characters out of a Jane Austen novel.

Harriet with adorable (IMHO) nn of Harry? Love George/ Georgina too though.

daisypond Thu 30-Nov-17 15:24:49

Elinor and Marianne are characters in a Jane Austen novel. I like Georgina and Georgiana. Georgiana is a Jane Austen character, too (Pride and Prejudice) but both names are loads better than the ubiquitous Georgia. Frances? I really love this name. Julia? Harriet is the rather plodding and dim girl in Emma, so that really puts me off that name.

DD knows a girl called Cordiana which I think is lovely.

Victoria is also great.

Eleanor of Aquitaine's sister was called Petronilla (and sometimes called Alix)

I like Georgia, Georgina and Georgiana and Georgie and Gina.
Georgia was a bit too popular (and the Jorja speling is awful) for a while and Georgiana will cause confusion (she'll get Georgina, Georgie-Ana, etc - I think it's pronounced Jor-jane-a).

Thistledew Thu 30-Nov-17 15:52:01

Julianna?

Idratherhaveacupoftea Thu 30-Nov-17 16:02:06

Don't forget the poor little child having to spell Georgianna. Georgina is lovely.

TwigTheWonderKid Thu 30-Nov-17 16:09:08

Cordelia, Augusta or Henrietta ?

Pemba Thu 30-Nov-17 16:56:48

Georgina is lovely and flows nicely. Georgiana is a bit more of a mouthful. Also pronunciation difficulties, is it jorj-ee-ahna, jorj-ee-anna, or the weird version of jorj-ayna as in the film The Duchess with Keira Knightly?

Marianna is nice (although I prefer Marianne) but combined with Eleanor that is quite Jane Austeny!

Alice/Alicia?
Isabel/Isabella?
Lydia?
Louisa?
Christina?
Serena/Selina/Sabrina?
Madeleine?

I prefer Georgina of the two. Josephine has a similar vibe in my mind!

SuperBeagle Thu 30-Nov-17 19:32:27

Georgina is nicer than Georgiana, which is too OTT frilly and has pronunciation issues (George-ee-ah-nah, George-ee-anna, George-ayna).

Ttbb Thu 30-Nov-17 19:37:40

Not a fan of Georgina (very popular when I was at school). I love Georgiana though. Other names that give me similar vibes are:
Henrietta
Alberta (although I wouldn't name a child that tbh)
Frances
Evangelina
Eugenia
Alexandra
