Brainstorming girl sibling names for Rose

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there! Our little girl is only 4 months, so we won’t be trying again any time super soon, but I am such a planner when it comes to names, I wanted to get a jump start on our list. If we have a boy, our name has been picked out since our honeymoon - [name_m]Fox[/name_m] [name_m]William[/name_m]. ([name_m]Fox[/name_m] is a family surname and [name_m]William[/name_m] is for my father, who passed when I was young.) Anyway, since the boy name is set, I want to brainstorm girls. Our little girl is called [name_f]Rose[/name_f] [name_m]Quinlan[/name_m]. [name_f]Rose[/name_f] we just loved for its timeless, classic, yet slightly feisty feel. [name_m]Quinlan[/name_m] is a family surname. Our last name is short and Irish, sounds like McKeely.

As far as naming style, we like classic but with a little bit of feistiness and almost an old west feel (for some reason I’ve always felt our last name sounds a bit wild west or something.) I also really like to factor in nicknames in the hunt, so I want at least one cute nickname they can wear in childhood but then have the options to put aside when it comes adulthood/resume time. Like with [name_f]Rose[/name_f], she’s [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] for now.

Anyway, here’s my list so far, with nicknames. If we have a girl her middle name will most likely be [name_m]Fox[/name_m], the family surname we would use as a first for a boy. I’d love any thoughts, ranking my list, and, of course, any other suggestions! No restrictions other than outside the top 100, and we can’t use the names of our cats - [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] and (Calamity) [name_f]Jane[/name_f]. Thank you!!

[name_f]Mirabelle[/name_f] ([name_f]Belle[/name_f])
[name_f]Katherine[/name_f] ([name_u]Kit[/name_u])
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] ([name_f]Tilly[/name_f])
[name_f]Zelda[/name_f] ([name_f]Zee[/name_f])
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u] ([name_f]Lulu[/name_f])
[name_f]Louella[/name_f] ([name_m]Louie[/name_m])

[name_u]Eloise[/name_u] is my favorite!

My favourite is [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] with the nickname [name_u]Kit[/name_u]- love both. [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] nn [name_f]Tilly[/name_f] is my second choice. Here are some suggestions:

[name_f]Adeline[/name_f] ([name_f]Addie[/name_f])
[name_f]Leonora[/name_f] ([name_f]Lea[/name_f], [name_f]Nora[/name_f])
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] ([name_u]Jo[/name_u], [name_u]Josie[/name_u], Sephie)
[name_f]Olive[/name_f] ([name_f]Liv[/name_f])
[name_f]Tamsin[/name_f] ([name_f]Tammy[/name_f])
[name_f]Susannah[/name_f] ([name_f]Sue[/name_f], [name_f]Susie[/name_f], [name_f]Annie[/name_f])
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] ([name_f]Liza[/name_f])
[name_f]Veronica[/name_f] (Vee, [name_u]Ronnie[/name_u], [name_f]Nica[/name_f])
[name_f]Winifred[/name_f] ([name_f]Winnie[/name_f])
[name_f]Maybelle[/name_f] ([name_f]May[/name_f], [name_f]Belle[/name_f], [name_f]Elle[/name_f], [name_f]Ellie[/name_f])
[name_f]Marianne[/name_f] ([name_f]Annie[/name_f], [name_f]Molly[/name_f]- if it works for [name_f]Mary[/name_f] why not [name_f]Marianne[/name_f]?)
[name_f]Estella[/name_f] ([name_f]Essie[/name_f], [name_f]Ella[/name_f])
[name_f]Cassandra[/name_f] ([name_f]Cassie[/name_f])
[name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] ([name_f]Bea[/name_f], [name_f]Trixie[/name_f])

And if you don’t mind popularity, [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] (nicknames [name_f]Carly[/name_f], [name_u]Caro[/name_u], [name_f]Cara[/name_f], or [name_f]Callie[/name_f]) and [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] ([name_f]Lettie[/name_f]) would be great choices too.

Thanks so much for the feedback and suggestions! :slight_smile: [name_f]Glad[/name_f] you like the nn [name_u]Kit[/name_u], @bonfireazalea - I was wondering if it was to old fashioned. I think it sounds really fun and fresh and ideal for a little sister. And I love your suggestions - we actually had [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Olive[/name_f] on our longer list, though two friends had little ones with those names somewhat recently, so they’re out.

Anyway, I think my top three are

[name_f]Katherine[/name_f] ([name_u]Kit[/name_u]) [name_m]Fox[/name_m]
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] ([name_f]Tilly[/name_f]) [name_m]Fox[/name_m] and
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u] ([name_f]Lulu[/name_f]) [name_m]Fox[/name_m]

Good to have it narrowed down into an easy top three I can remember once we start trying. Thanks!

[name_u]Eloise[/name_u] ([name_f]Lulu[/name_f]) and [name_f]Louella[/name_f] ([name_m]Louie[/name_m]) are my favourites for a sister to [name_f]Rose[/name_f]!
