Hello

Our baby girl (child #1) is due very soon and we are struggling to pick a name, mostly because the three that we like have name associations with people we know! I like Ivy or Evie and my partner likes Chloe. Really we both like them all but can’t get the name associations out of our head, so if anyone has any suggestions for similar styled names we would love to hear them!

Thanks

I don’t know if you’re bothered about popularity but Evie is about the most overused name there is at school. Especially if paired with May/Rose/Grace. Although I do like Eva.

Ivy, Evie and Chloe are all pretty but are very different names I think.
Ivy is a revival name.
Evie is short for Evelyn and was very popular 12-20 years ago so there are lots of teen Evies now. Only one baby I know. Quite MC I think.
Chloe was a slightly edgy French name when I was a girl but has latterly been used by those who like Mae or Rose as a middle name. So it is a lovely name but ubiquitous and thus a bit ordinary where it used to be unusual.

Like Ivy:
Ruby
Edith (Edie also cute)
Mabel
Martha
Daisy
Poppy
Like Evie:
Elodie
Isabel
Fern
Eleanor (Ellie or Ella)
Like Chloe
Jasmine
Olivia

She’d be one of 100 Evies in her year at school. I have one of the most popular names for the year I was born and have gone my whole life being known as ‘Bandit X’ rather than just ‘Bandit’!

How about Louisa? Simple yet gorgeous, and quite unusual too.

Same with Ava. I know so many!
