Baby girl names
Claremum20 · 05/08/2022 20:54
Hello everyone. Husband and I are finding it hard to pick a girls name. We have a boys name picked out already. Older sister is named Heidi.
Here are some on the shortlist that we both agree on!
Would love some thoughts on this!

I love Emily (mine and my daughter's middle name; my great grandma) and Lucy :)
Both timeless, pretty and classic.

They all seem quite dull and commonly used compared to Heidi, which is beautiful and unusual. Maybe Lucy at a push?
Claremum20 · 05/08/2022 21:08
Yes we love how unique Heidi is and would love some other suggestions.
It's so hard to find something we both agree on. I don't feel passionate about any of them in comparison to Heidi! We both love the boys name but I'm stressing over a girl's name as I want to love the name!

Evelyn is everywhere and will just be yet another Evie. It’s so popular.
I love Leah. Emma is nice too.

All a bit dull really. Lucy is the best of a boring bunch (sorry).
Other suggestions to go with Heidi that aren't too out there:

Leah. .Nice name even if I'd have had 10 girls it wouldn't have featured on anywhere on my short list.
Emily. This is one of those names that I blow roasting hot and ice cold on,at the moment I'm ice cold. There's no question its a very pretty name, though
Emma. Gorgeous and classic.
Evelyn. I really don't get the fixation and hype over this name.
Lucy. Adorablefor a child. Powerful strong sophisticated elegant attractive for an adult, what's not to love.
Amy. My sister is an Amy (Aimee) and I'm still jealous that she got the pretty name.😂

Leah - it's ok. Every one I've known has been lovely which makes me like it more.
Emily - nice name but there are so many of them. If that bothers you.
Emma - nice enough. Probably prefer Emily but Emma is less common.
Evelyn - quite like it. Prefer Ev-a-lin to Eve-lin.
Lucy - same as Leah. Fine but doesn't really grab me.
Amy - Love it. And not as popular as your other choice. More timeless.
I'd definitely choose Amy from your list. The others all go with Heidi but are just ... less exciting, somehow. How about:
Lyra, Lara, Lena, Livia, Leonie
Everly, Effie, Edith, Erin, Erica, Etta, Enya
Amaya, Amber, Amity, Aria, Ayla, Astrid, Avery

Leah is the best. The rest are all a bit meh and Heidi is so lovely.
Mumofgirls2017 · 06/08/2022 08:03
I like Leah and Evelyn best.
halfsiesonapotnoodle · 06/08/2022 08:14
Not keen on any of your list, especially Leah which reminds me of 'leer'-an ugly connotation. How about Tamsin, Coco, Cassia, Emerald or Fern? All gorgeous with Heidi.

I actually think Heidi and Emma is a nice combination. Heidi is getting quite popular and Emma while still in use isn't as popular as several of the others.
But otherwise Zoe, Sadie, Dora, Flora, Stella, Tessa, Seren, Ffion, Laurel, Robin, Rowan, Celeste, Colette, Annette all work
MrsBertBibby · 06/08/2022 09:01
I'd avoid another "i" ending.
Claremum20 · 06/08/2022 19:26
Oh no this seems to confirm my gut feeling that there is nothing particularly great about our list. I feel I've compromised too much now maybe as I don't love love any of them!!! Open to suggestions for a sister name to Heidi. Appreciate all the ideas so far.
Blue4YOU · 06/08/2022 19:35
Lorna (I love this but Mn really doesn’t like)
ElizaSkye · 06/08/2022 19:41
Heidi & Rosanna
Heidi & Celeste
Heidi & Astrid
Heidi & Juliette
Heidi & Martha
daisytruffles · 06/08/2022 19:44
What about Amelie? Similar to Emily but more unusual and goes so well with Heidi
Aquamarine1029 · 06/08/2022 19:45
Heidi and Farrah
Ikeameatballs · 06/08/2022 19:53
I like all of your choices but particularly think that Leah works well with Heidi.
olivida · 07/08/2022 07:48
The names on the list are pretty but plain, Heidi is much cooler!
I agree with a PP that Cassia sounds lovely with Heidi.
DuchessOfSausage · 07/08/2022 13:58
Evelyn - I don't like it at all. Eve and Evie are nice but so overused
All the rest are classic.
Leah - there are so many L names popular now it just blurs into the rest
Emily - ok
Emma - I really like it
Lucy - I like it
Amy - a bit nothingy, I don't like Ames as a nn
Favourite is Emma, but not sure if it goes with Heidi. Not sure about having two with vowelly -ie/y/i sounds
Confusedteatowel · 07/08/2022 14:02
Leah is nice, or maybe:
Beautifulsunflowers · 07/08/2022 18:50
Heidi is a lovely name,
suggestions for her sister
Eek3under3 · 07/08/2022 19:03
@Claremum20 can I be really annoying and ask about your boy names? I had a boy last week and we have no names at all…..Heidi was my chosen name for a girl so I think we have similar taste!
For girls, I love leah from your list. Matilda, Eliza and Florence are other suggestions.
