Hi All,

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:

Etta
Poppy (worried it might be too popular?)
Evie

I think Etta is a favourite, however also struggling for a middle name to go with this??

Any ideas welcome! Thanks!

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!

Etta Miriam
Etta Lucy
Etta Josephine
Etta Leonie
Etta Rachel

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.

Etta Florence
Etta Marlene
Etta Jasmine

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:
Madeleine
Clementine
Florentine
Rose
Brie
Penny
Bear
Plum
Pearl
Lily
Lamb
Juniper
Raven

Thanks all,

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.

Thanks :)

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 Grin

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.
