Hi, I am currently pregnant with baby number 3, 2nd daughter band struggling with names. We like names that aren't too popular, try to avoid top 100. My son is called Carter (which although is 80 something now on the name list, it wasn't 8 years ago when we choose it 😂 still love it though) daughter is Indigo NN Indi.

Names we like and are toying with are listed below, opinions please and any other suggestions:

Coral
Blossom
Quinn
Amity
Ottilie
Juno
Astrid
Halle
Cassia
Delilah

We have Astrid on our list if this one turns out to be a DD. Others on our list are Violet, Juliette, Pearl and Ingrid.

Love the name Quinn!

Juno and Cassia for me. Prefer Coralie or Coraline to Coral. How about Corinna or Kerenza/Carenza?

Coral - not keen. No reason why.
Blossom - not keen. Just a bit too cutesy, I think.
Quinn - like it.
Amity - love it.
Ottilie - not keen. I don't think it makes a pleasant sound.
Juno - not keen. I keep seeing Jumbo (I know it's nothing like it really)
Astrid - love it.
Halle - like it.
Cassia - like it. Prefer Cassidy.
Delilah - not keen. Similar reasons to Ottilie.

I'd have a tough choice between Astrid and Amity. Maybe Amity because it's really unusual.

Other suggestions:
Aphra, Aria, Ariel, Averil, Bronte, Briar, Brynn, Casey, Cora, Cleo, Delphi, Dulcie, Effie, Erica, Elina, Faye, Fallon, Hebe, Hedda, Juniper, Kiki, Keltie, Livia, Leonie, Mika, Mila, Mala, Misty, Noa, Noelle, Nova, Piper, Romy, Rosina, Ramona, Rowena, Robina, Sadie, Saskia, Seren, Skye, Tansy, Tanya, Verity, Zeryn, Zia

Cassia and Ottilie are beautiful, feminine and not overused

Quinn is a boys name, I know only boys, like Finn or Flynn.

CharlotteC77 Sat 13-Jan-18 10:32:17

I like Ottilie and Delilah from your list, also love Piper and Coralie/Coraline from the suggestions.

Happpydays Sat 13-Jan-18 10:43:59

Hmmm I like your naming style a lot but don't feel your suggested names quite match something like Indigo in coolness so far?

Blossom is both too cutesey and too Hollywood... Astrid, Ottilie, Delilah i see more as borderline frumpy names, def not as cool​ and different as indigo... Juno a a bit too normal too. Cassia too similar sounding to Carter. Quinn a boy's name. Halle and Amity would be OK I guess but not completely convinced.

Of PP suggestions I think​ Noa and Kiki are great! Also Leonie, Skye, Zia

skinnyamericano Sat 13-Jan-18 10:45:42

Cassia or ottilie

TheVanguardSix Sat 13-Jan-18 10:49:35

Scarlett

Tallulah?

Leilaniiii Sat 13-Jan-18 10:57:39

Are you in Australia? Carter and Indi are very popular there at the mo. Anyway, I think Quinn works the best with your other two. In fact, Carter, Indi & Quinn is the coolest sibset I’ve seen in ages.

undertheradarplease Sat 13-Jan-18 11:40:16

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Quinn. Completely disagree with the pp who says it’s a boys name.

It’s short, snappy and a bit cool - matches your other two names perfectly!

Sevendown Sat 13-Jan-18 12:01:09

Coral too twee
Blossom love this
Quinn if 5th dc
Amity makes me think of jaws!
Ottilie pretentious
Juno too cool?
Astrid love this, strong beautiful
Halle no too much like hall and the actress
Cassia like but don’t like Cassie as nn
Delilah Like

Hutch78 Sat 13-Jan-18 12:21:52

Thank you everyone, you've helped me think about some of the names differently.
I think we have narrowed it down to:

Quinn
Cassia
Astrid

Atticusss Sat 13-Jan-18 12:33:59

Oh you have lots of my favourites!

Juno and Ottilie on mine,
Antigone (Tiggy)
Persephone (Percy)
Tess
Calliope
Cassiopeia (Cassie)
Fern
Rue
Kali
Eris (goddess of war and chaos though)
Tabitha (one of my all time favourites but very popular now so didn't meet my outside the top 100 preference)
Juniper

Atticusss Sat 13-Jan-18 12:34:26

Oh yes Astrid was also on my list, also Pippi

Atticusss Sat 13-Jan-18 12:37:01

daisypond Sat 13-Jan-18 13:33:04

From your reduced list, I like Cassia the best - I actually like this a lot. I'm not keen on Astrid at all and Quinn is horrid.
