DD who is Beatrice. Top contenders are Emily and Sophie. Do they go well or are they too popular to go with DD's name which is way down the list in popularity.

I prefer Sophie. All Emily's I know are a but whiney (sorry!)

I don't think the level of popularity really matters. If your first was say, Amaryllis, then Emily and Sophie would seem plain in comparison but I would say that Beatrice, Emily and Sophie are of a similar ilk.

I wouldn't put either of those names with Beatrice. I think another long name would be more fitting.
Beatrice and
Florence
Amelia.
Helena.
Matilda
Harriet
Violet
Abigail
Penelope
Jennifer
Claudia
Dorothy
Alexandra
Georgina
Madeleine
Samantha
Rosanne
Catherine
Kathleen
Vivienne

There are so many Emilys and Sophies round here that I just couldn't use either name, which is a shame as they are both timeless and beautiful names.

With Beatrice, I think Sophie has the edge though.

Aprilmightbemynewname Fri 20-Apr-18 13:50:38

Agree Florence..

MikeUniformMike Fri 20-Apr-18 13:52:16

Of the two, Sophie.

TatianaLarina Fri 20-Apr-18 14:00:57

I’d go for something a bit less common, as Beatrice is.

Imogen (fellow Shakespearean character) Violet/Viola, Aurora, Aurelia, Romilly. I’d suggest Ophelia but I don’t really like it.

SabineUndine Fri 20-Apr-18 14:03:23

Cecily.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Fri 20-Apr-18 14:04:55

Cecelia.
Suzannah
Evelyn.

TatianaLarina Fri 20-Apr-18 14:06:17

Yes Cecily, Cicely or Cecilia would go very well - similarly Edwardian.

HerculesM Fri 20-Apr-18 14:08:38

Sophie

daisypond Fri 20-Apr-18 14:15:49

I like Sophie more than Emily, and I think it goes better. Otherwise, I like Cecily/Cecilia, as has been suggested - or if you'd like another Dante name, Francesca or Frances. I also think Mary goes well - very classic.

TatianaLarina Fri 20-Apr-18 14:17:51

What about Sophia pronounced So fire - the old English way?

Otherwise she will be Sophie P or Emily F as there are so many of them.

RoundaboutSnail Fri 20-Apr-18 14:46:22

I think they do go well, actually... they're all quite traditional sounding.

Sophia or Emilia would be nice too.

AnyaMoondial Fri 20-Apr-18 16:11:04

Oooo Cecily as someone suggested would be fab.

How about Agatha? I really love that name. Or Mabel would be really cute.

bridgetreilly Fri 20-Apr-18 21:54:43

Eugenie.

Lifeaback Fri 20-Apr-18 23:09:52

I don't think they go with Beatrice very well, Sophia or Emilia would go better or something more keeping with the classic theme like Beatrice (e.g: Florence/ Francesca/charlotte/Edith/Harriet)

That being said, your two daughters will be two different people so do their names need to go together? If you really like the names Emily or Sophie then pick them I say

chezmk1988 Fri 20-Apr-18 23:11:32

I like both names but Beatrice and Sophie best x

gwen25 Sat 21-Apr-18 12:31:50

Beatrice and Florence go perfectly together.

DanceDisaster Sat 21-Apr-18 13:17:14

Beatrice and Florence sound very natural together.

Also maybe Francesca.

Smoliver Sat 21-Apr-18 20:08:19

Of the two you said, I prefer Sophie. Although, Beatrice and Emily have a timeless/classic literature feel to it.

Other suggestions you might like:
Cecily
Chloe
Lucy
Ivy
Julie/Julia
Amelia/Amelie
Audrey
Ruby
Eloise
Josephine

My daughter has two Sophies and three Emily's (one is spelled Emileigh but she still turns when the Emily's are called) in her nursery class so I'd say too popular.
I love the suggestions of Romily and Cecily!
Henrietta and Valerie are lovely vintage names too.

DownInTheDumps1 Sat 21-Apr-18 23:47:01

Isobel
Harriet
Esme

GreatDuckCookery Sun 22-Apr-18 15:51:44

Definitely Florence.

Alice
Eleanor
Harriet
Clementine
Jemima

BringMeCoffeePlease Sun 22-Apr-18 16:53:47

Hate Emily and Sophie. They’re so boring and outdated in comparison to the classic timelessness of Beatrice.

What about:
Elizabeth
Eliza
Sophia
Thea
Rose
Katrina
Georgia
Francesca
