Emma is getting a sister!! Help !

We found out today we are having our second daughter! We already have a little girl, [name]Emma[/name] [name]Louise[/name]. Here are some names we’re considering, but please add any you think sound great with [name]Emma[/name] and our last name… Our last name is [name]Crosby[/name]! Thanks! =)

[name]Kathleen[/name] (”[name]Katie[/name]”)
[name]Sydney[/name] ([name]Just[/name] a joke! DH loves hockey! Haha!)

To go with [name]Emma[/name]…

[name]Alison[/name]: I like it, especially with this spelling, but some find it dated.

[name]Cecilia[/name]: Very pretty! I’m not sure it fits with the more popular [name]Emma[/name], though.

[name]Celia[/name]: I love it!

[name]Chloe[/name]: I’m not sure if you’re bothered by popularity, but [name]Chloe[/name] is very popular currently. Oh, and sounds like a cartoon character with your surname.

[name]Isabel[/name]: I think it goes perfectly with [name]Emma[/name], but is too popular to me.

[name]Grace[/name]: See [name]Isabel[/name]

[name]Jacqueline[/name]: I’ve never really liked this name, for some reason.

[name]Kathleen[/name]: I think it would be very refreshing to see a young [name]Kathleen[/name]!

[name]Kendra[/name]: This doesn’t fit with the rest of your list… it’s very dated and even seems made-up. Plus, it’s tongue-twistery with [name]Crosby[/name].

[name]Laura[/name]: I personally find it a little dull, but there’s nothing really wrong with it.

[name]Lily[/name]: I adore [name]Lily[/name], but it’s so trendy…

[name]Miranda[/name]: [name]Lovely[/name]! I think it goes well with [name]Emma[/name], too.

[name]Nina[/name]: It may be just me, but it seems too close in sound to [name]Emma[/name].

[name]Rachel[/name]: I find it dated and boring…

[name]Sophie[/name]: It’s perfect with [name]Emma[/name], but again, very popular…

[name]Tina[/name]: It seems dated and nicknamey to me.

I love a lot of the names on your list, especially [name]Miranda[/name], [name]Lily[/name], [name]Isabel[/name], [name]Celia[/name], and [name]Cecilia[/name]. You might also like:


Off your list here are the ones I think go well with [name]Crosby[/name]!
The reason i suggest [name]Sophia[/name] is so it won’t rhyme.

[name]Alison[/name]: [name]Alison[/name] feels pretty dated to me (1980s), and I think some of the other names work better with [name]Emma[/name]. I can better see [name]Alice[/name] with [name]Emma[/name].

[name]Cecilia[/name]: I can see [name]Cecilia[/name] with [name]Emma[/name], and I love the sound of [name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Crosby[/name]. :slight_smile:

[name]Celia[/name]: I love [name]Celia[/name] and can see it with [name]Emma[/name], but with a C last name, [name]Celia[/name] C____, when I look at it, the C from the last name attaches to [name]Celia[/name] to form Celiac, making me think of Celiac Disease. (I do love [name]Celia[/name], though…)

[name]Chloe[/name]: I think it’s a great name (popular, though, at #10), but because your last name ends in an “ee” sound like [name]Chloe[/name], [name]Chloe[/name] [name]Crosby[/name] sounds pretty matchy to me.

[name]Isabel[/name]: I love [name]Isabel[/name]. [name]Isabella[/name] is super popular (#2), and [name]Isabel[/name] is used a lot too, but if popularity isn’t an issue for you, I think it would be very pretty with [name]Emma[/name].

[name]Grace[/name]: I think it works really well with [name]Emma[/name], but [name]Grace[/name] [name]Crosby[/name] doesn’t sound as pretty to me as some of the other combos because of the Gr/Cr sounds.

[name]Jacqueline[/name]: I think it’s a beautiful name, but some other French names feel fresher to me these days. I can also better see some of the other names with [name]Emma[/name].

[name]Kathleen[/name] (”[name]Katie[/name]”): I like some of the other names more, but I do think that [name]Kathleen[/name] [name]Crosby[/name] sounds cute. :slight_smile:

[name]Kendra[/name]: I only think of the [name]Kendra[/name] from the reality show, and it doesn’t have [name]Emma[/name]'s sophistication to me.

[name]Laura[/name]: I love [name]Laura[/name] so much, but [name]Laura[/name] [name]Crosby[/name] doesn’t have the best sound to me because of the Rs.

[name]Lily[/name]: I think it works really well with [name]Emma[/name], but [name]Lily[/name] [name]Crosby[/name], like [name]Chloe[/name] [name]Crosby[/name], sounds “ee” heavy on the endings to me. You may also like [name]Lila[/name].

[name]Miranda[/name]: I love [name]Miranda[/name], and think it’s great with [name]Emma[/name]!

[name]Nina[/name]: I love [name]Nina[/name], but can better see some of the others with [name]Emma[/name].

[name]Rachel[/name]: I like some of the other names more, but I do think [name]Rachel[/name] and [name]Emma[/name] sound nice together.

[name]Sophie[/name]: [name]Sophia[/name] and [name]Sophie[/name] are very, very popular, but I still love [name]Sophie[/name]. :slight_smile: To me though, [name]Sophie[/name] [name]Crosby[/name] has the same problem as [name]Chloe[/name] [name]Crosby[/name].

[name]Tina[/name]: [name]Tina[/name] feels very dated to me, and I can’t see [name]Tina[/name] and [name]Emma[/name] as sisters. (I can better see [name]Christina[/name] with [name]Emma[/name]…)

From your list, [name]Cecilia[/name], [name]Miranda[/name], and [name]Isabel[/name] are my favorites with [name]Emma[/name] (as well as [name]Celia[/name], but there’s the [name]Celia[/name] C issue for me, which may just be me). :slight_smile:

Some names you may like with [name]Emma[/name]:

[name]Alice[/name] (instead of [name]Alison[/name], but it’s pretty sss heavy with your last name)
[name]Victoria[/name] (very popular)

Good luck! :slight_smile:

On your list, I think [name]Isabel[/name], [name]Rachel[/name], [name]Lily[/name], [name]Celia[/name], [name]Cecelia[/name], [name]Grace[/name], and [name]Miranda[/name] all work with [name]Emma[/name] and your last name!

Also, what about [name]Georgina[/name], [name]Maritza[/name], [name]Lila[/name], [name]Lorelei[/name], [name]Bianca[/name], [name]Lucy[/name], or [name]Olivia[/name]?

Good luck!

Congratulations! :wink:

[name]Alison[/name]- I’m not a big fan of girl names ending in ‘son’ ([name]Addison[/name], [name]Madison[/name] etc.) and [name]Alison[/name] also feels quite dated to me.

[name]Cecilia[/name]- I love [name]Cecilia[/name] with [name]Emma[/name] and [name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Crosby[/name] sounds gorgeous! [name]Cordelia[/name], [name]Delia[/name] or [name]Amelia[/name] are also very pretty with [name]Crosby[/name].

[name]Celia[/name]- same as [name]Cecilia[/name]

[name]Chloe[/name]- It’s so popular that I think some of its gleam and spunk had worn off. [name]Cleo[/name] is very pretty though and not nearly as popular. Also, [name]Chloe[/name] [name]Crosby[/name] sounds very matchy to me.

[name]Isabel[/name]- I think [name]Isabel[/name] [name]Crosby[/name] sounds beautiful. It’s very popular though and [name]Isabella[/name] is even more. I prefer [name]Isobel[/name] and [name]Isadora[/name], though [name]Isabel[/name] matches [name]Emma[/name] much more.

[name]Grace[/name]- I love [name]Grace[/name] and I think it sounds perfect with [name]Emma[/name]!

[name]Jacqueline[/name]- I love French names but [name]Jacqueline[/name] is starting to sound over-used to me now. It also feels very different than [name]Emma[/name] to me. There are other lovely French choices out there though!

[name]Kathleen[/name] (”[name]Katie[/name]”)- I think [name]Kathleen[/name] [name]Crosby[/name] flows perfectly and it would be nice to hear of a little [name]Kathleen[/name]…

[name]Kendra[/name]- I really don’t feel [name]Kendra[/name] fits into your list at all. It feels dated, trendy and doesn’t flow well with [name]Emma[/name] to me.

[name]Laura[/name]- I love [name]Laura[/name] and think it sounds absolutely gorgeous with [name]Emma[/name] and [name]Crosby[/name]!

[name]Lily[/name]- I love [name]Lily[/name] as well (despite its rising popularity) but the matching ‘ee’ endings of [name]Lily[/name] and [name]Crosby[/name] don’t work well. Maybe you could try a [name]Lily[/name] variant such as [name]Lilia[/name], [name]Lillian[/name], [name]Liliana[/name], [name]Lilac[/name] or [name]Lila[/name], that sound better with [name]Crosby[/name].

[name]Miranda[/name]- [name]Emma[/name] and [name]Miranda[/name] work very well and [name]Miranda[/name] [name]Crosby[/name] sounds amazing!

[name]Nina[/name]- [name]Nina[/name] sounds very much like a nickname for me.

[name]Rachel[/name]- [name]Rachel[/name] sounds dated to me but it does work well with [name]Emma[/name] I suppose.

[name]Sophie[/name]- [name]Sophie[/name] is terribly popular but I love [name]Sophia[/name]!

[name]Tina[/name]- the same as [name]Nina[/name]. Maybe [name]Christina[/name] could work?

Here are some suggestions:


[name]Emma[/name] [name]Louise[/name] [name]Crosby[/name] is so sweet and classic! I’d go with [name]Cecilia[/name], [name]Isabel[/name], or [name]Laura[/name] for a first name, and [name]Kathleen[/name] or [name]Grace[/name] for her middle name. [name]Lily[/name] and [name]Sophie[/name] are my other picks, but they seem to popular (as in, what other popular name can we pick to go with [name]Emma[/name]?) and matchy for Miss [name]Emma[/name]'s sister…

[name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Grace[/name] [name]Crosby[/name] is my favorite, but [name]Laura[/name] [name]Kathleen[/name] is very nice, too!

My faves are [name]Isabel[/name], [name]Cecelia[/name], [name]Celia[/name], and [name]Miranda[/name].

Thanks, everyone! You guys give terrific advice ! :slight_smile:

My husband has suddenly soured on [name]Isabel[/name] & [name]Rachel[/name]… so it’s down to [name]Miranda[/name], [name]Katie[/name] and [name]Laura[/name]! Wooo!

My favorites with [name]Emma[/name]:

[name]Kathleen[/name] (”[name]Katie[/name]”)

[name]Emma[/name] & [name]Sophie[/name] and [name]Emma[/name] & [name]Grace[/name] are my favorites.

I vote for [name]Laura[/name].

My immediate thought, even before I looked at your list of possibilities, was ‘[name]SOPHIE[/name], of course!’ I have granddaughter sisters named [name]Emma[/name] and [name]Sophie[/name] and love the names together. I wouldn’t let the popularity of [name]Sophie[/name] stop you. You’ve already got the top U.S. girls’ name with [name]Emma[/name], so why not give her sister a name that happens to be popular too if it’s your favorite name for her?

Oh, and in an older generation, British actress [name]Emma[/name] [name]Thompson[/name] has a younger sister [name]Sophie[/name] (also an actress).

[name]Emma[/name] and [name]Sophie[/name] – love each of those names separately and together!

I vote for [name]Laura[/name].[/quote]
[name]Laura[/name] is so beautiful - it’s my daughter’s name. Also love [name]Miranda[/name]! [name]Love[/name] [name]Kate[/name], too, as a nn for [name]Katherine[/name]. Here are some more ideas. There may be repeats from former posts because I haven’t read all of them.

[name]Margaret[/name] nn [name]Maisie[/name]

[name]Louise[/name] and [name]Louisa[/name] are both classic like [name]Emma[/name]. [name]Evelyn[/name] is nice too, if you don’t mind having two ‘E’ names.

I vote for [name]Laura[/name] too – it is my 11 month old’s name.

[name]Emma[/name] and:

Firstly the nameberryites are going to say that some of these names are very popular and that it may deter you from using them. I do not necessarily agree that popular means don’t use it, after all [name]Ava[/name] is right at the top of my list!

[name]Emma[/name] [name]Louise[/name] and

[name]Chloe[/name] [name]Angeline[/name]
[name]Isabel[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name]
[name]Alyssa[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Cecily[/name] [name]Anne[/name]
[name]Celia[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Jacqueline[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Laura[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Miranda[/name] [name]Lily[/name]
[name]Sophie[/name] [name]Grace[/name]

[name]Hi[/name] there…I can see [name]Emma[/name] with a sister named [name]Katie[/name] [name]Lynne[/name] or [name]Laura[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name].

My vote goes for [name]Emma[/name] and [name]Kathleen[/name] ([name]Katie[/name])…
followed closely by [name]Emma[/name] and [name]Laura[/name]. [name]Both[/name] are lovely…hard to decide between the two…good luck (:
