I'm very newly pregnant so am bound to change my mind 1000 times but at the moment I am set on having a flower name if my baby's a girl.
My favourite was Ivy but my partner said it sounds like 'an old lady name' so that's out - I don't want to argue with him!
I feel ridiculously picky but I know I don't like Lily or any of its derivatives as I have a cousin Lily and the same with Rose.
Partner has also said no to Violet.
Currently thinking about Daisy but I don't love it the way I love Ivy!

Any suggestions would be fantastic
MN is undecided also - but definitely will not be Grace or Mae or any of those, no offence to you guys with Graces and Maes xx

I like Hebe, Flora and Iris (this week, anyway smile)

Iris is sweet but I can already hear his response !

I like Rowan for a girl but many don't.

What kind of names does your DP like? Maybe we can come up with a flower name that suits his taste.

stdomingo Sat 03-Jul-10 19:36:54

My step mother is called Heather pointydog and she's evil haha!
Of course you could never have known this!

Rowan is pretty although I automatically thought of Rowan Atkinson lol.
I also have a friend who's sister has called her son Roein (I have no idea where she got the spelling from!)

His suggestions so far have been Lily (doh!) and Erica (no!)

That's it so far.
He has a son called Oliver which rules out anything similar, not that that had even crossed my mind!

Heather is lovely, I like Ivy a lot too. I have a friend called Ivy who is 28 and loves her name. Not keen on Iris because it immediately makes me think of eyes! (sorry, that may just be me who is weird!)

I love Poppy and Rosie.

Not into Fleur guys but thank you!

Some of the others are really sweet!

I just love Ivy damnit, it sounds less 'babyish' than Daisy which is my second choice. I'm 22 and I can't imagine being happy if my name was Daisy.

Lilac is beautiful too!

stdomingo Sat 03-Jul-10 19:47:17

Lilac is sweet!

I think Rosie is really pretty too although I had a cat called Rosie once - I need to stop being so picky!!

I find myself strangely drawn to Primrose, even though it does make me think of grannies.

stdomingo Sat 03-Jul-10 19:57:14

Hehe Primrose does sound cute, despite the grannies!
Never heard Calla before?!

Haliborange Sat 03-Jul-10 20:08:09

It's a kind of lily (a very nice one!)

stdomingo Sat 03-Jul-10 20:10:22

Oooh I'll have to have a look at it.
I wanna fill my house with flowers for inspiration haha!

I've got months to think, but I just want to decide a couple!

Boy's was well easy!

Primrose was on my shortlist for all 3 of my boys (if they'd been girls)

I also really like Poppy and Clover

stdomingo Sat 03-Jul-10 20:15:19

Poppy and Clover make me think of pets, no offence!
I feel Poppy growing on me but then I think of my aunties jack russell! Aaagh

stillbumbling Sat 03-Jul-10 20:16:17

Sorrel. Sorrel, Sorrel. Don't know about speeling. But that's the name I'm planning.

stillbumbling Sat 03-Jul-10 20:17:20

Spelling ffs! And I'm not up the duff it's my imaginary name for dc2. Or the next cat...

stdomingo Sat 03-Jul-10 20:22:43

stillbumbling That IS cute, maybe that cat/child will come along one day haha!
