I have decided that I want Phoebe Rose but I don't think dp is soo keen he likes,
Pippa (Phillippa)
Rosie (Rose)
but he doesn't know which middle names.

So what do you all think? I don't dislike the names he likes but I really like my choice

I like them all, but especially Philippa (not so keen on Pippa though) - distinguished and unusual.

bogie Fri 01-Aug-08 16:21:27

oh and he likes Miranda aswell

I like Miranda, Abigail and Rosie - not keen on Philippa or Pippa (usual disclaimer applies).

I really like Phoebe Rose tho Phillippa Rose is also very nice.
I love the name Phillippa but my dad is Philip so it's a no-go for us ...

Mmn, not so keen on Philippa myself. I'm not keen on Phoebe either - sorry. I'm very well acquainted (iykwim) with an Abigail Elizabeth, which I've warmed to over the years. I absolutely lurve the name Rosie/Rose. Abigail Rose is nice smile

Miranda Rose sounds lovely
so does Phillippa Rose

FranSanDisco Fri 01-Aug-08 16:29:54

Phoebe Rose would be my choice.

I like Philippa but hate the shortened forms.
Not too keen on Phoebe.
Abigail and Miranda are nice as is Rosie/Rosie/Rosamund/Rosalind.
Rose Elizabeth sounds nice.
Or put Philippa as a second name so that no one shortens it.

I have a Philippa Rose, so no prizes for guessing what gets my vote!

nickeldime Fri 01-Aug-08 16:44:31

Wouldn't go for Philippa/Pippa; they sound kind of aristocratic and dated.

Rose/Rosie is great - apparently Rose is most popular, followed by Rosa, then Rosemary.. seen at:
baby name Rose

Sophie's pretty. Sophie Rose....

Philippa is nice.

great choices as many are on my list for future dd. I will be having Rose as a middle name to for family reasons so my list is


Im not too keen on Phillipa or Miranda though sorry.

Rosie and Pheobe are my favorites of those listed. But not sure you could use them together?
I like your choice of Pheobe Rose actually.
Classy and pretty too.

Pippa Rose

carrieon Mon 04-Aug-08 14:18:34

I know a Philippa whose sister is Alexandra. They're known as Phil and Alex and everyone thinks their parents secretly wanted sons!

I like Abigail best, means something like 'father's joy' which little girls usually are

pacita Fri 08-Aug-08 17:44:13

I like most of the names on the list, but my favourite would be just Rose or Rosie.

SlartyBartFast Fri 08-Aug-08 17:49:03

i like pippa

HonoriaGlossop Fri 08-Aug-08 18:26:55

Agree with pacita that just Rose is perfect.

or if not, Phoebe Rose is the best on the list. If that's what you want - have it! When your DP carries the baby then HE can have the casting vote, IMO!

CompletelyDotty Fri 08-Aug-08 18:35:23

i love the name Phoebe Rose! ignore what dp says it's a beautiful name!

3andnomore Fri 08-Aug-08 19:07:33

really hope you can get him to go with your choice...Phoebe Rose is a gorgeous name

Abigail -lovely name
Pippa (Phillippa)- don't like Pippa but Phillippa is nice
Rosie (Rose)- not keen on Rosie, but Rose is a lovely name

Tas1 Fri 08-Aug-08 19:27:54

My DD is Phoebe Olivia.

bogie Fri 08-Aug-08 19:33:25

can't have rose as we have an auntie called rose who we see all the time.

Tell him not to mess with a hormonal woman. Phoebe it is!
