Hi all,
We've just found out that baby #2 is a girl (yay)! We're after a Welsh name which is easy to pronounce / spell - we live in Wales but half of the family are English. DD1s name is Catrin Rose. We'd like a flower / plant for a middle name again. Last name is close enough to "Davids" to make no difference.

First names we're considering - Bethan / Elinor / Megan / Rhiannon

Middle names we're considering - Lily / Ivy / Violet

Middle names that we can't use due to various reasons: Poppy, Holly, Daisy, Iris.

We'd love some opinions on the names we're looking at, and also any other names which you lovely lot think we should consider.

Only go for Bethan if you are happy for her and all her friends to pronounce it as Began for about 5 years.

I personally prefer Rhian to Rhiannon

Carys or Nia are also nice.

Elinor Rowan would be stunning, lovely and striking.

I love Bethan Lily. How do you feel about Rhian? Rhian Ivy is lovely.

Eleri is a beautiful name - what about Eleri Rose or Eleri Willow?

Seren Eirlys. Always loved it and would have used it if had any Welsh connection

CrackersDontMatter Wed 27-Nov-19 16:40:51

I love Eirlys. It's been on every list I've had but I've always been vetoed.

All lovely names. I particularly love Elinor.

I have an Elen, and almost everyone spells her name Ellen (we do live in England though, and people don't seem to know the Welsh version).

Elinor Ivy

Seren is lovely and also Enfys which means rainbow

Firecracker2019 Wed 27-Nov-19 19:09:22

Eirlys is pretty but not easy to pronounce or spell...

ikeakia Wed 27-Nov-19 19:41:47

Betsan Violet

Moonflower12 Wed 27-Nov-19 22:03:32

Rhiannon. I love this name so much that I gave it to my horse- she is the goddess of horses.
Violet for a middle name?

MikeUniformMike Wed 27-Nov-19 22:06:31

I prefer Betsan to Bethan. I'm welsh and know many Bethans in their late 40s and 50s.

Eirlys ? It means “snowdrop”
