Greta or Mae?

Between these two names, [name]Greta[/name] and [name]Mae[/name], what do you like better with [name]Nora[/name] [name]Violet[/name], our two year old? Our last name is Gotschall so we want the names to go with that.

I would also love to hear suggestions for middle names for either.
Thanks so much!

With [name]Nora[/name], I like [name]Greta[/name]!! [name]Greta[/name] [name]Mae[/name] would be precious!!!

I’m not a fan of [name]Mae[/name] for a first name. But [name]Greta[/name] [name]Mae[/name] would be cute!

With [name]Nora[/name] I love [name]Mae[/name]. [name]Both[/name] have that sweet, old fashioned, warm feel to them. Stylish without trying, simple. Cute on a child but will age well. I think they sound truly lovely and timeless together. I like [name]Nora[/name] [name]Violet[/name] and…:

[name]Mae[/name] [name]Penelope[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Cecilia[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Adeline[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Rebecca[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Dahlia[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Susannah[/name] ([name]Susannah[/name] means [name]Lily[/name], subtly carrying on the flower theme)
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Annabelle[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Matilda[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Tabitha[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Rhiannon[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Francesca[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Georgina[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Jessamine[/name] (flower)
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Lorelei[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Rosanna[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Rosalia[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Sylvia[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Claudia[/name]

Best of luck! And I love both your final two choices so I really don’t think you can go wrong :slight_smile:

I love [name]Nora[/name] and [name]Greta[/name] together! And [name]Greta[/name] [name]Mae[/name] would be perfect.:slight_smile:

[name]Greta[/name]! So cute.

I like [name]Greta[/name] with [name]Nora[/name]:slight_smile: I second [name]Greta[/name] [name]Mae[/name], awesome name!

[name]Nora[/name] [name]Violet[/name] + [name]Greta[/name] [name]Mae[/name] = the perfect sibset!

Looks like I’m outnumbered! I love [name]Greta[/name] too, but not as much as [name]Mae[/name], and certainly not as much with [name]Nora[/name] as [name]Mae[/name]. [name]Nora[/name] and [name]Mae[/name] feel “meant to be” to me. They are a prefect style match. [name]Greta[/name] is not only a little matchy since it has 2 syllables and ends with “a” but I also think the name has a totally different feel to [name]Nora[/name] and I don’t see them as sisters, thats just me though! [name]Nora[/name] and [name]Margot[/name] I could see, but [name]Greta[/name] feel more glamorous and exotic to me for some reason. I could see [name]Greta[/name] more as a sister to [name]Scarlett[/name], [name]Harlow[/name], [name]Saskia[/name] etc.

Clearly most Berries don’t agree though, so go with your instinct! Or wait til you meet the little lady and see what “suits” her, that seems to work for a lot of people!

I just love how unassuming and natural [name]Nora[/name] and [name]Mae[/name] feel together to me :slight_smile:

Good luck again!

I love the name [name]Greta[/name] and I love [name]Greta[/name] [name]Mae[/name] together. However I’m not sure I love [name]Greta[/name] with your last name. I think [name]Mae[/name] goes better with your last name. Possible middle names could be
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Daphne[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Dahlia[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Geneva[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Kathleen[/name]

I think [name]Nora[/name] and [name]Greta[/name] sound the best together, although I would love to meet a baby [name]Mae[/name].

[name]How[/name] about [name]Maeve[/name]?

Definitely [name]Greta[/name] [name]Mae[/name]/[name]May[/name]! [name]Love[/name] [name]Greta[/name].

[name]Love[/name] the name [name]Mae[/name]!! So sweet and vintage sounding. [name]Greta[/name] is cute and spunky but I just haven’t fully warmed up to it yet. Still feels a bit harsh to me. [name]Mae[/name] is soft and pretty

[name]Greta[/name] [name]Mae[/name]!!!

My vote is for [name]Mae[/name]. [name]Greta[/name] is cute but I think [name]Mae[/name] has that sweet, vintage quality that is perfect with a sister named [name]Nora[/name].

I agree with pp, [name]Greta[/name] [name]Mae[/name] is adorable. Though I’m not sure how well [name]Greta[/name] works with your last name. Either way, I love [name]Greta[/name].

Thanks so much for your thoughts!

[name]Nora[/name] and [name]Greta[/name] or [name]Nora[/name] and [name]Mae[/name]? Hmmm I was going to pick [name]Mae[/name] at first, but I like [name]Greta[/name] with [name]Nora[/name], even if they both end in A and even if your last name starts with a G.
[name]Greta[/name] [name]Mae[/name] is nice, but I think a longer mn would be nicer

[name]Greta[/name]!!! [name]Love[/name] [name]Nora[/name] and [name]Greta[/name] together! adorable sibset!

And love others suggestions of [name]Greta[/name] [name]Mae[/name]!
