Look, I know this is pathetic, but we're really stuck for a name for DD3 (she's 2 weeks old already, poor thing). We have a Benedict, a Felicity and a Cecilia. Suggestions please.

I was convinced throughout the pregnancy that she was a boy, in which event she would have been Theodore.

Criteria:

Very short surname so has to have 3 or 4 syllables.

Not too many Ls as would be silly with surname

Early Roman saint would be perfect but we can't find one that's "right" iyswim

Thank you for any ideas you could throw into the naming hat.

i don't know any roman saints...but think the following would go:

Elizabeth
Isobel (and variant spellings)
Catherine (and variant spellings)
Amelia
Theodora (my favourite girls name when I was little)
Isadora (going off on a theme now)
Annabel
Hermione
Estella
Eugenie / Eugenia
Matilda
Violet/te
Honora
Penelope
Romilly
Antonia
Georgina
Pandora
Ursula

Basica lly I think all your DCs names are FAB and I have dug out my own baby name list.

Unfortunately I cannot have any potential DD with a 3-4 syllable name have given my own DS a one syllable one and wanting to be 'fair' and 'balanced' (I know this sounds crazy - i hope YKWIM)
