Looking for a name for a third triplet.

If all girls we have decided upon Dolly and Hattie and would quite like the third name to be a "thing" something visual to match the other names but we're stuck as we're not too keen on Floral names (apart from Rosa)

I am posting for the first time on my friends log in and feel slightly cheeky that my first contribution is a question rather than a reply.

I will be checking this post later tonight and hope there will be some response. Thanks for reading.

Harriet, Dolores and Stella sound fab together.

I like ruby whoever said that. Fits so well with the other 2 names. What about Ivy?

Just a thought. We had the coloured thing for our twin boys that beared no resemblance to their names. In fact Thomas was green and his brother blue much tothe annoyance of a friend who said he should've nabbed the blue dummy, slippers etc being blue like Thomas the Tank engine.
Choose the names you love and assign a colour each perhaps then no one child gets the naff symbol. Our boys know if ther are 2 drinkd made theiy go for their colour cup. It IS easier when it comes to school lunch boxes etc.
Delores could also be Lorrie which I have heard. Persononally I love delores much more than any shortened versions.

What lovely names you've chosen and congratulations on triplets.
How about Dolly, Hattie and (Jem)ima

If you're looking for names that mean a thing, rather than are a thing you could have:
Stella (star as mentioned already)
Esther (sun)
Iris (rainbow)

Do it. Think of how lovely the coat pegs will be. smile

If you are having two 'ee' sound ending names, I think you should have all three.

And actually, if the other two are having longer full names, third needs one as well. Like Elsie would have Elisabeth. Or Miri would have Miriam. Josie would have Josephine. I can't think of anything that is a thing though.
Um... Berry? Short for Berenice, Bernadette?

Briony means vine apparently. I like that.

SprinkleLiberally Mon 06-May-13 19:31:04

If you were concerned about Dolly, you could shorten to Lori.
I love Laurel for a girl but a different feel to the other names perhaps.

Phoebe (love that name so took it for my mumsnet moniker), Gemma and Isla.

Dolores (Dolly)
Harriet (Hattie)
Rebecca (Becky/Beckie)

Girls' ideas sound fine and Joshua and Rowan OK, too, but please don't call your son Bay - Morecambe will spring to most people's minds much more quickly than laurel. I guess you've done the check with your surname...

Just thought, following on from another thread, you could name one after an island for a visual connection. Iona. Or Ailsa (after Ailsa Craig).

Matilda shortened to Tilly (lamp!)

Lovely lovely names, people will always find something negative when it wasn't their idea grin.

Btw all the multiples I know love their similarities, which include similar sounding names.

Dolores is lovely name and shortened to Dolly as a pet name it gives TBP DD the option of growing up into Dolores - choice. Or even Lorri. I have never heard of Dolly or dollies as titties either hmmNorks is definitley an English thing as we don't say that in Scotland! My folks used to call 'em big ears hmm?

I like the name Bay - Kirstie Allsopp called her boy Bay didn't she? You could call third DD Cherry maybe? Or Sheri (pronounced Cherry)

If you are going with nature themes you could call a DS Budd(i) as in Buddlea (butterfly bush).

randomname Tue 14-Apr-09 14:24:39

could have Rowan for a girl too.

VeryAnnieMary Tue 14-Apr-09 12:28:47

Dolores (Dolly)
Harriet (Hattie)


Esther (Essie)? (Just saw it in a newspaper & had to add)
