My name is Amy, daughter is Hermione - bit of unfortunate rhyming potential in list...

I need a 2/3 name combo from the above

Tommy Mon 27-Jul-09 22:20:48

Constance - the only one I would consider. If I had to choose 2, I would go for Constance Mabel

i love


don't like Plum at all. not sure why.

i mkight go with Constance Violet

Hassled Mon 27-Jul-09 22:24:01

I like Violet and Mabel best.

jellybeans Mon 27-Jul-09 22:24:47

kitty and noemie are my favourites (although rhyming issue), not keen on the others, abit old fashioned for me but I like Connie on it's own and Belle/Bella.

Velvet Mabel

Plum only works as a middle name imho, and not with Velvet wink

maggievirgo Mon 27-Jul-09 22:29:57

constance - connie is quite nice but I do not like Constance. Very supercilious-sounding.
plum - a cute nick name. But a testicle obviously, at the end of the day! sorry!
velvet - nope, sounds rude. What about Vivien much more elegant.
bellatrix - em. Perhaps as a nickname for Belinda Beatrix (Bibi) or Annabella Beatrix (Bellatrix) Actually Belinda is very cool imo Vivien Belinda. Bridge chic.
oenone- no, sounds like a sin (the wanking one)
kitty - ok, but not crazy about it.
prudence - NO. Far too uptight and smug!
violet - Nice. Like this one
noemie - Lovely.
mabel - Lovely.

Mabel Beatrix would work well too.

What about Juliet Dulcie Verity Lois Elsa They seem similar to some of your names, in a similar style.

Just read that your daughter is Hermione. I think Penelope would go well with Hermione.

LaDiDaDi Mon 27-Jul-09 22:34:57

A bit tricky to find combos that work well together from that list I think...

Constance Violet
Constance Noemie
Mabel Velvet
Mabel Noemie
Prudence Noemie
Prudence Violet
Violet Bellatrix

I really like Kitty but I'm not sure of it with any of your other choices.

Long or short surname?

neverthoughtidask Mon 27-Jul-09 22:34:58

I assume you know that Bellatrix was a character in Harry Potter - unless, with a daughter called Hermione, you're going for the HP connection, I would avoid!

slyandgobbo Mon 27-Jul-09 22:35:59

Amy / noemie will sound like "amy / no-amy". Constance and violet I like.
Violet Constance or Violet Constance Kitty?

It has to be Mabel.

hobbgoblin Mon 27-Jul-09 22:38:41

maggiev - that is very helpful, thanks.

It is a 2 syllable surname beginning with T but could use father's short surname beginning with H or hyphenate the two.

seeker Mon 27-Jul-09 22:39:01

Where on earth did Plum come from? You can't possibly call a baby Plum - don't be silly!!!!!!

Constance is lovely.Violet is lovely. Not sure about Noemie - are you thinking of Naomi?

Maud? Matilda?

thisisyesterday Mon 27-Jul-09 22:39:10

but penelope isn't even on the list!

thisisyesterday Mon 27-Jul-09 22:40:57

hobbgoblin- ever get the feeling that people don't understand the concept of final shortlist? lol

maggievirgo Mon 27-Jul-09 22:42:34

er... well, I generally find most people don't mind if you suggest an extra name. Their eyes can glaze over it, or it might jump out at them in a way it didn't from the book.

But it can't be final shortlist if it's got Plum on it - she must want a replacement for that!grin

maggievirgo Mon 27-Jul-09 22:44:24

Exactly!! plum velvet is surely a sexual position. So, two replacements needed there.

thisisyesterday Mon 27-Jul-09 22:45:05

lol seeker. i have to admit Plum isn't my cup of tea. might be the first time we've agreed on a names thread? lol

nah, just remembering how it annoyed me when i asked for thoughts on my final 5 names for ds3 and got people going well, i don't like X but how about Y (which was a totally unrelated name that I didn't even like)

it's hard enough narrowing it down from the final few, without people adding more in!

ShinyPinkShoes Mon 27-Jul-09 22:45:56

Kitty is actually growing on me as a fi
rst name! So I would go for either
Kitty Velvet or Constance Kitty but I do worry that the Velvet bit could make her sound a bit prostitute like!

I just can't see any of the others 'going' with the other children's names, sorry!

Did you consider Iona, Elsa etc?

Hell btw!

thisisyesterday Mon 27-Jul-09 22:46:06

nooo, no replacements needed. she needs to narrow it down!

hobbgoblin Mon 27-Jul-09 22:46:12

I'm not adding anything to the list unless by some miracle someone suggests a very unusual, previously unheard of by me name that I happen to LOVE. Got it?!! grin
