[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] goes really well with [name_f]Elise[/name_f].

Congratulations, @mill1020!

[name_f]Kate[/name_f], derivative of [name_f]Catherine[/name_f], is the best match for [name_f]Elise[/name_f], derivative of [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f].

Absolutely love those names!

All gorgeous, but I like:


I voted for [name_f]Rose[/name_f] but they all work. My least favorite would probably be [name_f]Amy[/name_f] or [name_f]Serena[/name_f], because they sound a little dated to me, but they’re still nice names. [name_f]Elise[/name_f] and [name_f]Rose[/name_f], [name_f]Elise[/name_f] and [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] and [name_f]Elise[/name_f] and [name_f]Adele[/name_f] are all adorable in my opinion. (:

Congratulations! [name_f]Audrey[/name_f], [name_f]Claire[/name_f], and [name_f]Kate[/name_f] are my favorites–both as individual names, and with [name_u]James[/name_u], [name_m]William[/name_m], [name_f]Elise[/name_f], and [name_m]Zachary[/name_m]. I especially like the idea of [name_f]Elise[/name_f] and [name_f]Kate[/name_f] for sisters, although in general, I would say [name_f]Audrey[/name_f]'s my favorite. I’m not sure you can really lose–they’re all fantastic! I love [name_f]Serena[/name_f], as well, but for some reason I don’t see it fitting very well with your kids? Although now that I think of it, [name_u]James[/name_u], [name_m]William[/name_m], [name_f]Elise[/name_f], [name_m]Zachary[/name_m], and [name_f]Serena[/name_f] do work quite well–I just tend to think of your style as ultra-conservative-classic (probably because of [name_u]James[/name_u] and [name_m]William[/name_m]!), so [name_f]Serena[/name_f] seems pretty lively compared to that. I think something like [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Serena[/name_f] or [name_f]Claire[/name_f] [name_f]Serena[/name_f] would be lovely, though!

I didn’t vote, because I obviously like too many of your options. :slight_smile: If forced, though, I think I’d probably rank them [name_f]Audrey[/name_f], [name_f]Claire[/name_f], [name_f]Kate[/name_f], and [name_f]Serena[/name_f]? Maybe? But even then, I’m not even sure–I could be persuaded to move [name_f]Kate[/name_f] to the number one spot. [name_u]James[/name_u], [name_m]William[/name_m], [name_f]Elise[/name_f], [name_m]Zachary[/name_m], and [name_f]Kate[/name_f] just work so great together!

My favorite is [name_f]Kate[/name_f]! I think it goes great with all of your kids names.

Thanks, everyone who has answered so far. And, @ash, [name_f]Kate[/name_f] is my husband’s top pick at the moment. :slight_smile:

First off, congrats to you on your little one! :slight_smile: I know you’ve been TTC.

While I absolutely adore the name [name_f]Adele[/name_f] (a name that was vetoed by my DH with our newly arrived babe); to go with your other kiddos I prefer [name_f]Claire[/name_f] or [name_f]Kate[/name_f]. Can’t wait to see complete combos. :slight_smile:

Ivoted for [name_f]Rose[/name_f] since it is so beautiful, and like [name_f]Elise[/name_f], underused as a first. It also fits with the classic sibset. [name_f]Kate[/name_f] would be my second choice, but [name_f]Rose[/name_f] [name_f]Katharine[/name_f] would be a lovely combo. The only name on your list I don’t think really fits is [name_f]Amy[/name_f]. [name_f]Amabel[/name_f] would be an option, though.

I love [name_f]Adele[/name_f] or [name_f]Claire[/name_f] with your other kids’ names. :slight_smile:

I love [name_f]Rose[/name_f] and [name_f]Claire[/name_f] with [name_f]Elise[/name_f].

I really like [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and [name_f]Rose[/name_f], in the end it had to be [name_f]Claire[/name_f] though.

I think that [name_f]Adele[/name_f] sounds beautiful with [name_f]Elise[/name_f]!

I voted [name_f]Kate[/name_f] to fit with the whole sibset, but think [name_f]Claire[/name_f] would also be a lovely fit. The others seem different to rest of the siblings.

Yay @mill! I’m excited to see your post! I am keeping my fingers crossed for a girl for you :slight_smile: I am really loving [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and [name_f]Elise[/name_f] together. They sound like playful but elegant little sisters!

[name_f]Rose[/name_f], [name_f]Kate[/name_f] and [name_f]Amy[/name_f] would make a nice sibset to me. [name_f]Rose[/name_f] and [name_f]Amy[/name_f] are sweet and vintage and [name_f]Kate[/name_f] has spunk. I prefer a full name on the birth certificate though. [name_f]Adele[/name_f] is a great choice except to me it has the same beginning sound to [name_f]Elise[/name_f].

My top 3:

  1. [name_f]Claire[/name_f]- it is sleek, french and sophisticated like [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
  2. [name_f]Serena[/name_f]- a classic name, ancient name, I was surprised to find out it was used in Roman times, not too popular or unfamiliar
    3.[name_f]Audrey[/name_f]- it is a name with great history and substance, I like it with [name_f]Elise[/name_f], Audrey is in the top 40, though [name_f]Elise[/name_f] is climbing quickly to the 150s.

Congratulations! I love [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and [name_f]Rose[/name_f] to go with [name_f]Elise[/name_f]. :slight_smile:

I like [name_f]Claire[/name_f] the best… Simple, yet elegant. Not too popular, and [name_m]French[/name_m], too! But [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] sounds wonderful as well!

Congrats! My favorites with sibs are [name_f]Audrey[/name_f], [name_f]Adele[/name_f], [name_f]Claire[/name_f], and [name_f]Serena[/name_f] (Seri). [name_f]Rose[/name_f] and [name_f]Kate[/name_f] don’t seem to fit to me, and [name_f]Amy[/name_f] is just a bit dated imo. but love those 4! Top 2 [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and [name_f]Serena[/name_f] (Seri).
