Elizabeth is a family name and I just love Eve. Is it too 'of the moment'?

Yes smile. I think Eve, Eva, Ava, Evie are all far too "now" (however pretty). I'm not sure it's brilliant combined with Elizabeth either - the alliteration is a little OTT.

Elizabeth/Elisabeth is a lovely second name (it's my DD's second name).

Any other ideas?

Our other daughters are Rosie Jane and Emily May.... Help?

I think it's a lovely choice.

Eve is classic

How about Elizabeth Evie, Elizabeth Eve - I like the sound of them smile

I agree with NdP- think Eve is classic too.

I agree Evie and Ava are more 'of the moment', if that matters. I like both but had never come across them on a rl person before about 5 years ago.

Eve and its derivatives may be quite trendy at the moment, but it is also a longstanding classic name. My granny was Evelyn and she was born in 1920! Woudl have been on my list if DS had been a girl, except would have been daft with DH's name.

I actually think either Eve Elizabeth or Elizabeth Eve are both quite nice.

To go with Rosie Jane and Emily May, also how about:

Elizabeth Anne
Faye Elizabeth
Charlotte Elizabeth
Daisy Elizabeth
Caroline Elizabeth
Hannah Elizabeth

I agree Eve is classic, I have an Eve. smile

I have an Ella Elizabeth, so I think Eve Elizabeth sounds lovely.

It's a lovely name - and I wouldn't worry about being of the moment - I was called Sarah in the 70s and have always been surrounded by hundreds of other Sarahs but didn't really bother me. Only thing I would say is would you want two daughters with the same initial? I had a friend at uni and her and her two sisters were all something beginning with S and it really annoyed her - cos for example if something came addressed to Miss S. xxxx then they wouldn't know who it was for. A small point.... but worth thinking about.

I think it's lovely. Eve is very pretty and Elizabeth is classic and timeless. However, I wouldn't do it if your surname being with L because of the initials.

I think its beautiful! ...and I love Elizabeth Eve too!

BoyMeetsWorld Wed 24-Dec-08 14:48:30

Eve Elizabeth is sweet!

My DD2 is Eve Rose, we don't know any other Eves. DH's Nana is Edith, DD was going to be Edie, but it just wasn't quite right and so we got to Eve. It is a beautiful name!!
