Help please! We chose a very unusual name for our first daughter (Plum Elizabeth) and now we’re stuck on what to name her sister. Our current list feels a bit pedestrian in comparison, does it matter?

We like:

Alice
Flora
Gaia
Cecily
Beatrix
Sylvie
Merryn
Iris (actually, I’ve always loved Isis, but it’s obviously unusable now)

I think that Lettice is an old name, not spelt exactly like the salad grin
I like it.

Isn't Lettice a form of Letitia?

Sylvie is nice.

'Plum and Lettice' sounds like a vegan gastropub.

@GuppytheCat Sylvie Clementine sounds fabulous and you’re right it definitely has a nice symmetry to Plum Elizabeth.

I also suggested Clementine, one of my favourite names. I only thought of going with a more traditional middle name and having something like one of names I mentioned above as a first name because they go well with Plum but don’t sound too similar and Elizabeth, the middle name, is more traditional. But the symmetry idea is much better.

Berry.

Berry is cool. A unisex name I think. Berry Gordy?

Mirabel

It's a type of pear, an airport but mostly, a lovely name.
