Sister for Delilah
Tvchocolatetea · 15/11/2020 08:50
Hey, struggling to find names I love for our baby girl. Have worked with children for years so lots of names I am put of off.
I like Beatrix and Amelie.
My name ends in lie so not sure if that is a problem with Amelie?
Also the middle name will possibly be violet.
If anyone has any ideas that would be great thank you!!

Delilah is lovely and I think Amelie would be great, absolutely fine with your name.

@whatsyourflava love your suggestions thank you! Love pearl but it wouldn't go with our surname unfortunately. Also love Cleo, clementine, Edie the most they are lovely. Thank you xx

Not everyone is religious @mikeuniformmike , I'm not bothered about Delilah being a bad person in the bible as I don't believe in any of that. My Delilah is lovely :) so thanks for the unhelpful comment

I love both Beatrix and Amelie, but particularly Beatrix! I have both Delilah and Beatrix on my baby name list and think they both go great together. I'm not a fan of violet due to it sounding like violent but if you love it then go for it.

@MikeUniformMike What a ridiculous thing to say. 🙄

Beatrix is great. (As is Delilah.)

@cloverbug, it was a genuine suggestion.
cloverbug · 15/11/2020 11:15
@MikeUniformMike I'm sure. 🙄
You're always on here trolling people.
Tvchocolatetea · 15/11/2020 11:39
@cloverbug ah yeah I do love Beatrix. My partner doesn't like it as much. Violet is a family name which is why I would like to use it :) xx

@ellmau lovely suggestions. Ah we have a miranda in the family xxx

I don't troll anyone @cloverbug.
Delilah is a biblical name as is Jezebel. Same sort of vibe.

@MikeUniformMike you are always on this topic trolling people, yes. I wonder why
Mish85 · 15/11/2020 11:46
I think Adeline would be lovely with Delilah.
RomillyTheRabbit · 15/11/2020 11:49
Beatrix is lovely! I think it goes really well with Delilah.
Amelie is quite popular and sounds a lot like Emily, Amelia, Emelia, which are also popular. I don't get out off names if they're a bit popular, but when there are a few popular names which all sound similar, yes that does actually put me off a bit. So I personally wouldn't use Amelie.

@FloraFlamingo, I don't troll anyone. I suspect that you do not know the meaning of trolling.
If OP had asked for suggestions for a name for a sibling for Sarah and I'd said Mary or Martha, that would not have resulted in (wrongful) allegations of trolling.

@MikeUniformMike I see your comments all the time and they are so rude. Do you just sit refreshing the baby name section?
MikeUniformMike · 15/11/2020 12:23
Must do if you say so @Thefaceofboe
Nell96 · 15/11/2020 12:44
I like Beatrix - lovely meaning, goes well with both Delilah and Violet (also love Violet as a first name). Can be shortened to Bea or Trixie, though I prefer the full version.
Not keen on Amelie. I don't dislike it, I just think it blends in with other quite popular names starting with A or E - Amelia, Emma, Emily, Ella, Evie etc.
Other names you might like:
