Help please! Sister for Beatrice (Part 2)

I have posted a couple things recently about a “sister for [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]” and I hope (!!) this will be the last post…

I’m just so stumped on what name to choose for [name_u]Baby[/name_u] Girl due in [name_u]June[/name_u].

DH and I like more uncommon names, but not too out-there. We like vintage names, and my personal preference would be for another cool vintage name to go with [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f].

DH likes [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] and [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] the most. I… [name_m]Don[/name_m]'t.

I like [name_f]Georgia[/name_f], [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f], [name_f]Bernadette[/name_f], [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f], and [name_f]Penelope[/name_f]. DH… Doesn’t. :frowning:

We have settled on a list including [name_f]Miriam[/name_f], [name_f]Felicity[/name_f], and MAYBE [name_f]Louisa[/name_f], [name_u]Eloise[/name_u], and [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f].

Middle names: we like [name_u]Wren[/name_u], and [name_f]Colette[/name_f] is a family name.

Any thoughts, opinions, or suggestions would be appreciated. I feel like I’ve seen and heard every name but can’t find one we both love.

Criteria: must have good nn, can’t start with B, and can’t be in the Top 100 popular names.

GO, BERRIES!!!

Is [name_f]Cecily[/name_f] an option? [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f].

[name_f]Harriet[/name_f]
[name_f]Delphine[/name_f]

I find it hard to think of names both you and your DH would like so I will just list names that I like paired with [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] that I think are not too popular. I like [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] best from your list and also like [name_f]Miriam[/name_f] best for the other list btw.

[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] & [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] (seconded)
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] & [name_f]Valerie[/name_f]
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] & [name_f]Philippa[/name_f] (seconded)
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] & [name_f]Camille[/name_f] (seconded)
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] & [name_f]Victoria[/name_f]
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] & [name_f]Catherine[/name_f]
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] & [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] (seconded)
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] & [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] (seconded)

[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] & [name_f]Millicent[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Millie[/name_f])

Nice but too popular:
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] & [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] & [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] & [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]

I think the names on your common list work well and I love the suggestion of [name_f]Cecily[/name_f]! Please consider these repeats seconded:

Be@trice & [name_f]Florence[/name_f]–For some reason, this is the first name that pops into my head as a sister for [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]

[name_m]Just[/name_m] a note about the suggested name [name_f]Ramona[/name_f] in the last post. While a lovely name, there is well known literary [name_f]Ramona[/name_f] with older sister [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] in a series of children’s books. Something to think about.

I adore [name_f]Felicity[/name_f]! Both [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u] and [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Colette[/name_f] are stunning. [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] and [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] just sound beautiful together :).

So many great suggestions! I really like the list you already have, especially [name_f]Miriam[/name_f], [name_f]Felicity[/name_f], [name_f]Louisa[/name_f] and [name_u]Eloise[/name_u]. I like [name_f]Colette[/name_f] as a middle name for them. What nickname would you use for each of them? [name_f]Millie[/name_f] or [name_f]Maisie[/name_f] for [name_f]Miriam[/name_f], and [name_u]Lou[/name_u] or [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] for [name_f]Louisa[/name_f] and [name_u]Eloise[/name_u]? I’ve heard of [name_f]Flick[/name_f] used for [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] which is cute!

My favorites from other posters are [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f], [name_f]Lucille[/name_f], [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] and [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f]. [name_m]How[/name_m] about…

[name_f]Lavinia[/name_f]
[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]

[name_f]Helen[/name_f]

Oh how I wish you could fall in love with [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_f]Colette[/name_f]! Makes me swoon…
