I've been given some succulents but I'm trying to find out their names. I've googled them but can't find any that quite match.

Any succulent experts here?

Aren't they echeverias?

Could well be?

I think the pink tinged one might be an aeonium as it was snapped off another plant but not sure of which type?

We need @nanthewiser She's an expert on this kind of thing!

I think the first one is Echeveria lilacina. The third one with pink edges might be Echeveria agavoides. Haven't a clue about middle one.

Someone called me?grin The first one is almost certainly Echeveria lilacina as Trethew correctly identified, which as its name suggests, will turn a beautiful lilac colour in strong sunlight. The second is an Aeonium, but difficult to say which one, as many look very similar. The last one appears to be another Echeveria, but not E. agavoides, but it could be another Aeonium - I'd need to see the whole plant to be sure.

Thank you! I'll try and get s photo of the whole plant and send it!

I've had a quick search for these this morning, and now feel that #1 is possible Echeveria derenbergii or its hybrid X deresina. #2 is definitely an Aeonium, and possibly A. arboreum, and #3 could be A. haworthiii which can have pink-tinged leaves. Because there are now so many hybrids around it's difficult to give an accurate ID without seeing the flowers or the full plant.

Thanks so much for your help. Here's 3 in the full plant

Yes, I'd go with A. haworthii for that plant, Straw.
Hope you enjoy growing them! (Don't overwater...)
