Sister for Noah

I just cannot seem to love any girls name. I'm not sure what it is. Boys names easy. Girls names impossible.

Criteria
2 syllables ideally
4 or 5 letters
As close being unshortenable as possible (like Noah)

I was always set on Matilda and it does go against the above. But I'm worried it will be shortened.

Just to add, due to the job I do I come across A LOT of people. So quite a number of names I write off because of that negative association.

I've thought about flipping it round and having Rose Matilda instead of Matilda Rose too.

I think you've found the name with Rose Matilda, it's beautiful.

and Nelly

helloitsmeyourlookingfor · 02/02/2024 08:15

@onlythebrave3 Ahhh thank you! I do like/love Matilda so it seems that best way to use both names without Rose also just becoming the "filler middle name".

@fourelementary Thank you but a lot of those names I associate with my childhood and therefore in useable, or they've already been used.

@pizzaHeart Too many Lucy's from my childhood. I quite like Lucia (loo-see-ah pronunciation only though)

@Manyandyoucanwalkover Sorry too long and all will be shortened.

@miniaturepixieonacid thank you for long list, nothing really standing out though. This is my struggle. I just don't seem to like any girls names. I find something wrong with them all.

I’ve never noticed the A-Lice before. Now I can’t unsee it. Went off the name Violet for the same reason, when someone said they always see it as Violent (by adding an N.

(and now will be singing Alice the camel all day, I was a sprite).

Why did you do this to me? I loved Louisa until someone told me it sounds like a good name for a laxative Loo Easer.

The four Noah's I know with sisters have the siblings;

Amelia
Rosie
Poppy
Stella

Also re nicknames, they'll get one anyway! It's a bonding thing that's important to creating in and outside groups!
