Baby girl #2:HELP with my top 2 girl names!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] all!

I’ve posted before received very helpful responses. We have narrowed down to our top 2 names.
We have a daughter [name_f]Annika[/name_f], she wants to name the baby “Rosie” and I love [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f]. Hubby’s favorite girl name is [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f].
Which do you prefer and goes better with [name_f]Annika[/name_f]? How about the spelling “Scarlet”?


Both are beautiful!

Personally, I think [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] and [name_f]Annika[/name_f] are beautiful as sisters. I’m also partial to [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f].

[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] is lovely too though and that’s the spelling that feels most natural to me. Maybe it’s the hard c/k in both names, but [name_f]Annika[/name_f] and [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] don’t flow as well, not that it matters how sibling names flow in the real world.

Good luck!


Another vote for [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], especially if [name_f]Annika[/name_f] is already calling baby ‘Rosie’.
I prefer the spelling [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] personally, I haven’t seen it used with one t before so might result in some misspelling.
Either way both names are lovely and go well with [name_f]Annika[/name_f].

Either would be beautiful together! I prefer the [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] spelling. If your husband won’t go for [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] you could go with [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] “Rosie” (“scarlett rose”). [name_u]Or[/name_u] if he’s fine with [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] as a middle, [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f]. [name_u]Or[/name_u] save one for a 3rd girl in case that’s in your future. [name_f]Annika[/name_f], [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] and [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] is a beautiful set as well.


They are both beautiful names. I love [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] "Rosie " and [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] “Lettie”. You can’t go wrong either way. You might decide on your middle and then see which flows better.


I prefer [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] - it feels warm and friendly, but fun and distinctive like [name_f]Annika[/name_f]!

[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] / [name_f]Scarlet[/name_f] are nice - stylish and sharp. I do prefer [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] and it would be my instinctive way to spell it, but I don’t dislike [name_f]Scarlet[/name_f].

Still, I do like [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] best, and that [name_f]Annika[/name_f] could call her [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] :slight_smile:

I think husband gets priority over daughter so it would depend on how he feels about [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f].

Maybe her full name could be [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] or [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f]?

I think [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] goes a bit better, it has a stylish Euro vibe and feels classic but current. [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] feels like a slightly different style to me, more modern, but I still think it works well as it shares Annika’s feistiness.

I was going to suggest Juliet(te) as a middle ground but then saw your username! [name_f]Felicity[/name_f], [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f], [name_f]Coraline[/name_f], [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] or [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] also spring to mind.

@katinka I love the suggestion of [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f]. I do believe it goes even better with [name_f]Annika[/name_f]. :two_hearts:


Both are beautiful names! If popularity matters to you, [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] might be a good choice since it’s less popular like [name_f]Annika[/name_f].

I like [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f]! I think that pairs nicely with [name_f]Annika[/name_f] and the nickname [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] is very cute.

[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] is a lovely name and [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] is very sweet! I’m going for Scarlet(t), though; I’ve actually been quite smitten with [name_f]Scarlet[/name_f] (this spelling!) myself lately, and [name_f]Scarlet[/name_f] and [name_f]Annika[/name_f] make a sweet pair! [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] doesn’t fit as well with [name_f]Annika[/name_f] for me, but it is a lovely name in general. I love the idea of Scarlet(t) [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], too. Either name is lovely, though; I don’t think you could go wrong. Good luck!

I agree - is it actually a case where you and your husband need to compromise on your favourites? You like [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], he likes [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f], but will either of you agree to the other or do you need suggestions for other names?

FWIW I prefer [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], but [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] (this spelling) is also pretty and would work well with [name_f]Annika[/name_f].

I prefer [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] to [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f]. I don’t like [name_f]Scarlet[/name_f]. It’s a word name, you should spell it like the word!

p.s. I love the name [name_f]Annika[/name_f]!

I like [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] better, but I think your husband has to have more say in his daughter’s name than the big sister has.
I’d only go with [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] if Hubby was fully supportive of it. Take his feelings and thoughts into consideration on this one, as both names are great choices.

I prefer the sibling set of AnNika and [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f].
If you shorten it, I like just plain and simple,Rose, instead of [name_f]Rosie[/name_f].
[name_f]Annika[/name_f] and [name_u]Rose[/name_u].
[name_f]Annie[/name_f] (not sure if you use this) and [name_u]Rose[/name_u].
