Anyone in the mood to give suggestions?

Although we are not planning to try to conceive until the girls are one next year me and my husband have decided that more children might be on the radar after all. For awhile I thought two was plenty but now we are beginning to realise that children are a blessing and and although they make your life busy they also make it worthwhile

Anyway, enough sappiness. I am having a VERY difficult time trying to think of names to go with our little girls [name]Mirabelle[/name] [name]Jane[/name] and [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]May[/name]. I have to admit that I love both the girls equally and dearly but I feel like [name]Mira[/name]'s name is a little too frilly so we’d like to steer more in the direction of [name]Genevieve[/name].

Any suggestions for girls and boys, middle and first names welcome!!

I hope all of you that have holidays are enjoying them :slight_smile:
Thank you, thank you a million times in advance

For girls I love:
[name]Natalia[/name] [I love this name bc its girly and pretty but has the cute spunky nn’s of [name]Nat[/name] or [name]Natty[/name]]

For boys my favs are :

[name]Hope[/name] you find a name you love, and I hope I helped a little :slight_smile:

[name]Hi[/name], [name]Josie[/name]! I’m definitely in the mood for suggestions. :slight_smile: I love [name]Mirabelle[/name] [name]Jane[/name] and [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]May[/name], and hope everyone is doing well!

French names I can see with [name]Mirabelle[/name] and [name]Genevieve[/name]:

[name]Estelle[/name] (oops…[name]Elle[/name] ending)
[name]Eloise[/name] (oops…it has [name]Mirabelle[/name]'s “el” sound)

[name]Non[/name]-French names I can see with [name]Genevieve[/name] and [name]Mirabelle[/name]:





With boys’ names, I can picture classics or names with a romantic/exotic feel.

Take care, [name]Josie[/name]! :slight_smile:

I love your girls names a lot. I love a lot of the other suggestions but I’ll try to give names that haven’t been mentioned yet.

[name]Mirabelle[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] and…

Hello everyone! Thank you all for your wonderful suggestions!
I’m so sorry I haven’t been able to reply sooner but things have been hectic here. [name]Mira[/name] has been sick and now I think [name]Genevieve[/name] may have caught it and we are trying to prepare for a big family christmas at my parents place down the road and my husband hasn’t got time off work until christmas eve… so in short, things are quite strained right now, sorry to whinge, I just needed to vent.

Anyway, I am going to try and reply to everybodys comments now :slight_smile:

[name]Hi[/name] Bostonsavvy, thank you so much!
I really love [name]Natalia[/name] and it would honor a good friend of mine [name]Natalie[/name] so it’s perfect and something I hadn’t though of! I like [name]Nora[/name] but find it a bit short with [name]Genevieve[/name] and [name]Mirabelle[/name]. [name]Lydia[/name] is not really my style but I could certainly appreciate it on someone else!
As for the boys names, I do love [name]Noah[/name] and [name]Ryan[/name] but again feel they’re too short. The others are a bit trendy with the girls names

Thanks again, I really like [name]Natalia[/name]!

[name]Hi[/name] [name]Jill[/name], thanks so much, this a great list!!
My favorites from the French girls are [name]Amelie[/name] and [name]Amandine[/name], my only problem is [name]Amandine[/name] reminds me of [name]Amanda[/name] and [name]Nadine[/name], neither of which I like but I like [name]Amandine[/name]… so not sold on it.
I love [name]Amelie[/name] though! It is so cute.

From the non-french girls I like [name]Emmeline[/name] and [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]!! [name]Do[/name] you really think it goes with [name]Mirabelle[/name]? I also really really like [name]Rosaline[/name].

I love almost all of the boys names you suggested, which is weird since I struggle trying to find boys names I like so thanks!
My favorite is [name]Theodore[/name].

Thank you, oh ever helpful [name]Jill[/name]


I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Florence[/name]!
It might be just what I’m looking for.

Crackerz, I quite like [name]Shea[/name] for a middle name, but I think it’s too strong-A-heavy with [name]Jane[/name] and [name]May[/name].
Thanks though!

Wow Twinkle, what an amazing list, thank you! I’ll star the ones I like

[name]Nora[/name] is pretty and seems in your direction but it seems short compared to your other girls names… you could go with eleanor but that is a little frilly in my opinion.

good luck, and happy holidays!

[name]Susan[/name], the girls names you suggested are all so perfect!
My favorites are:
[name]Francesca[/name] -but I think I should use a shorter name this time)
[name]Imogen[/name] -I used to HATE [name]Imogen[/name] but now I really really like it!!
[name]Paloma[/name]- I love [name]Paloma[/name].
The winner is…

[name]CECILY[/name]!!! a name I considered for the girls, that I completely forgot about but I love it. I [name]LOVE[/name] it!

From the boys I love [name]Archer[/name] (especially nn [name]Archie[/name]) and [name]Theodore[/name] (nn [name]Teddy[/name], then [name]Theo[/name])

Thanks heaps :slight_smile:

Thanks, I love [name]Phoebe[/name] and [name]Lorelei[/name]!


[name]Florence[/name]/[name]Flora[/name] nn [name]Flo[/name] or [name]Flossie[/name]

[name]Archer[/name] nn Archi
[name]Theodore[/name] nn [name]Teddy[/name], then [name]Theo[/name]

Tell me what you think


[name]Florence[/name]/[name]Flora[/name] nn [name]Flo[/name] or [name]Flossie[/name] - so cute!
[name]Cecily[/name] - [name]Do[/name] you love the nn Cessie? I just love the name [name]Cecily[/name], but it sounds horrifying with my last name. [name]Hope[/name] it sounds great with your last name.

[name]Archer[/name] nn Archi, love [name]Archie[/name] spelled with an “ie” at the end.
[name]Theodore[/name] nn [name]Teddy[/name], then [name]Theo[/name] - I am crazy about [name]Theodore[/name] nn [name]Teddy[/name], then [name]Theo[/name]. Also love [name]Ted[/name].

I think we have very similar taste, so maybe I should suggest some more.
[name]Calvin[/name] - no matter how many times I say this name or think of it, I never get tired of it.
[name]Colin[/name] - might be super popular where you live.

I’m going to be utterly unhelpful, and say I can’t choose! I love them all - [name]Archie[/name] is so sweet, [name]Theodore[/name] nn [name]Teddy[/name] would have been my first choice for a boy if it didn’t create theming issues for us, [name]Flora[/name] would be on my list were it not my niece’s name ([name]Flossy[/name] is so sweet and vintage, and [name]Flora[/name] is underused, in my opinion) and [name]Cecily[/name] is on our list (another beautiful, unusual, vintage choice).

In terms of matching in length, [name]Genevieve[/name], [name]Mirabelle[/name] and [name]Florence[/name] make great siblings, as do [name]Genevieve[/name], [name]Mirabelle[/name] and [name]Theodore[/name] ([name]Archer[/name] looks good too, though).
