Baby #2, sibling to Colette!

Really, really, really excited to be looking at names for baby #2! I’m 8 weeks along, so we don’t know the gender yet!

We have a daughter named [name_f]Colette[/name_f], which was my (and still is my) all-time favorite girl’s name. So, basically, I’m really feeling the pressure to find something amazing if we have another little girl.

Unlike our list for boys, which is fairly long (even though we don’t love love any particular one on the list), the names for girls that we both are “okay” with is pretty short. It’s been almost a year and half since we had [name_f]Cece[/name_f], and we basically don’t like any of the names we considered for her anymore.

Now we’re looking at:
[name_f]Lily[/name_f]
[name_f]Stella[/name_f]
[name_f]Alice[/name_f]
[name_f]Lenora[/name_f]
[name_f]Lisette[/name_f]

I know. It’s so short. But I’m not sure that any of these are “the one.” Which, I know it’s kind of early to be deciding that… but I really want a solid list of two or three names to take to the hospital in [name_u]November[/name_u].

I love [name_f]Alice[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]! It feel like a very classic pair. I don’t think I woukd pair [name_f]Lisette[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f].

Looking at your short list, here are some ideas!
[name_f]Estelle[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f] (similar to [name_f]Stella[/name_f] but stylistically a better fit maybe?)
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Annabelle[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Georgia[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Marjorie[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Victoria[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Elise[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Willa[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Lucille[/name_f]/[name_f]Lucy[/name_f]/[name_f]Lucie[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f], and similar [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Gemma[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Mila[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Fantine[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Sophie[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Elsie[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Lola[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Giselle[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Esme[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]

I think [name_f]Lily[/name_f], [name_f]Stella[/name_f], and [name_f]Alice[/name_f] all work with [name_f]Colette[/name_f]. I also like [name_f]Estelle[/name_f], [name_f]Elise[/name_f], [name_f]Lucille[/name_f], [name_f]Sophie[/name_f], and [name_f]Esme[/name_f] already suggested.

[name_f]Adele[/name_f]
[name_f]Camille[/name_f]
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f]
[name_f]Iris[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Margot[/name_f]
[name_f]Maxine[/name_f]
[name_u]Simone[/name_u]
[name_f]Sylvia[/name_f]
[name_u]Vivian[/name_u]

I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_f]Colette[/name_f]. My favorites of your options are [name_f]Alice[/name_f] and [name_f]Lily[/name_f]. I was going to suggest [name_u]Simone[/name_u], so I second [name_u]Simone[/name_u] and [name_u]Eloise[/name_u]. I also like [name_f]Anna[/name_f] and [name_f]Natalie[/name_f] with [name_f]Colette[/name_f]. Or would you like [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f]? One more thought: [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] & [name_f]Colette[/name_f]. Or Marta or Justine or Sallie.

I love [name_f]Lenora[/name_f] with [name_f]Colette[/name_f]! [name_f]Iris[/name_f] is lovely too.

Other suggestions:
[name_f]Adela[/name_f]
[name_f]Adele[/name_f]
[name_f]Amelie[/name_f]
[name_f]Estelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Giselle[/name_f] ([name_f]GiGi[/name_f] and [name_f]CeCe[/name_f] would be so cute)
[name_f]Honora[/name_f]
[name_f]Isadora[/name_f]

[name_f]Amelie[/name_f] is my favourite with [name_f]Colette[/name_f]. [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] and [name_f]Giselle[/name_f] come close behind.

I really like [name_f]Alice[/name_f] from your list.

My top choice for you is [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f]. [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f] are a great sibset!

[name_f]Colette[/name_f] & [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f]
[name_f]Colette[/name_f] & [name_f]Mireille[/name_f]
[name_f]Colette[/name_f] & [name_f]Blythe[/name_f]

[name_f]Colette[/name_f] & [name_f]Luisa[/name_f]

I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] the suggestion of [name_f]Vera[/name_f]!! I think it goes perfect with [name_f]Colette[/name_f]. My first thought however was [name_f]Tabitha[/name_f]. I think [name_f]Colette[/name_f] and [name_f]Tabitha[/name_f] pair rather nicely with each other :slight_smile:

From your list, I think [name_f]Alice[/name_f] and [name_f]Lenora[/name_f] fit best.

[name_u]Love[/name_u] the suggestions of [name_f]Amelie[/name_f], [name_f]Eloise[/name_f], [name_f]Sabine[/name_f] and [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f]!

Good luck!

Thank you guys sooo much! I’m gonna comb through these suggestions and hopefully expand the list a bit!

I adore [name_f]Colette[/name_f].

From your list I like:
[name_f]Alice[/name_f]
[name_f]Lily[/name_f] ([name_f]Lillian[/name_f]?)
[name_f]Lenora[/name_f]

I would lose:
[name_f]Lisette[/name_f] bc it rhymes

I’ll suggest:
[name_f]Annalise[/name_f]
[name_f]Celeste[/name_f]
[name_f]Camille[/name_f]
[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f]
[name_f]Delphine[/name_f]
[name_f]Geraldine[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f]
[name_f]Margot[/name_f]
[name_f]Madeleine[/name_f]
[name_f]Mireille[/name_f]
[name_u]Simone[/name_u]
[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f]

I definitely like [name_f]Alice[/name_f] best with [name_f]Colette[/name_f] off of your list and would agree with other posters to ditch [name_f]Lisette[/name_f], because of its similar ending. I avoided C names because of your daughter’s nickname, I think it might be odd to have another C name.

[name_f]Anais[/name_f]
[name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]
[name_f]Elowen[/name_f]
[name_f]Elspeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Hyacinth[/name_f]
[name_f]Leonie[/name_f]
[name_f]Mabel[/name_f]
[name_f]Olive[/name_f]
Phillippa

I was also going to suggest [name_f]Audrey[/name_f], [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] and [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] and think they are really strong options (I think [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] is my favorite with [name_f]Colette[/name_f]) so I wanted to second them!
