Traditional but not old fashioned girls name? Help!

I'm currently 31 weeks pregnant with our second child. We already have a DD called Jessica. If we have a boy, we like Thomas /Tom or Joshua/Josh.

If we have a girl we are stuck. We liked Bethany but DH used it in conversation and it came out as Befany, which really put me off! (We do live in a place where our local accent is kind of estuary englush, so I don't want a name which will be too much effort to pronounce properly!)

Any suggestions are welcome! Thank you!

Forgot to say, would like a traditional but not old fashioned name, not a newer name either. Sorry in advance. I am very fussy! X

You could stick with a Shakespearean theme, with Miranda, Juliet, Imogen, Helena or Cressida. I would think carefully before picking Jess and Josh btw.

magneticfield55 Sat 15-Nov-14 23:32:24

Lily, like my lovely granny smile

joosiewoosie Sun 16-Nov-14 05:27:43

MarionHaste - why would you hesitate over Joshua (alongside Jessica)? Is it the two Js thing?

MarionHaste Sun 16-Nov-14 09:15:37

I was just imagining calling them across the playground and it's a bit of a tongue-twister. Not that Joshua isn't a lovely name!

Jodie1982 Sun 16-Nov-14 13:11:48

My 3 Daughters names are, Grace, Olivia and Violet. smile

joosiewoosie Sat 29-Nov-14 11:20:35
