We are having another Daughter next year, and would really like some ideas of names.
The sort of names we like are a little bit different, but not totally nuts.
Our current Daughter is called Cora, and the names we have on our list so far are:
Poppy (worried it might be too popular?)
I think Etta is a favourite, however also struggling for a middle name to go with this??
Any ideas welcome! Thanks!

Etta is lovely
I love Evie (and Cora!) too though

Etta is perfect, gorgeous name and goes really well with Cora
My friend has 2 girls named Cora and Pearl which I also love

I don't like Etta because of the terrorist link.. Poppy is nicer.

I like Poppy best. Evie is nice but has been super-popular in the past few years along with Eve, Eva and Ava. Personally I'm not so keen on Etta as a stand-alone name, and prefer it as nickname for Julietta, Harriet, Scarlett, Marietta etc. but if you love it that's what counts!

You could chose the name Greta nn Etta
I love Etta on its own though

Poppy is lovely. I’m not fussed on Evie. Eva is nicer and fits well with Cora. I can’t stand Etta and I certainly wouldn’t have Etta Clementine.
It sounds too much like you’re saying
“Ate a Clementine”.
MN Ideas for Etta.

Poppy - nice but popular
Evie - nice but popular. IMO the nicest of the Evee/Eva/Ellie type names but there are so many of those names.
Middle name for Etta:

It looks like maybe we might be sticking with Etta then!
I absolutely love Rose for a middle name, and I also like Florence or Nancy for a first name.

Nikster11, have a look at my suggestions of middle names. Rose is nice but a bit overused as a MN.
I was tempted to add Sandwich or Biscuit

Cora is a good strong, name & needs something to complement that. Etta works, as does Eva.
Not Evie, and particularly not Poppy, they are much too twee.
Astronica · 04/12/2019 03:11
I like Florence and Poppy best.
orangetriangle · 04/12/2019 19:40
Eva works best with Cora though love Poppy not keen on Etta sounds like half a name
Blacmange · 04/12/2019 19:46
I love Etta and Cora too.
Middle name idea:
