I need help picking a name

[name]Hi[/name], my name is [name]Lidia[/name] and I’m 14… I’m not having a baby, but my mum is!! She is letting me and my sister pick a name for the baby. We don’t know if it is a boy or a girl but we are trying to think of a girl name first. She said we can pick any name we like (but she’s allowed to say no if she really doesn’t like it) and she will pick the middle name.
Some names on the list so far (she has approved)

[name]Do[/name] you like any of these? [name]Do[/name] you have any ideas we can add?
Oh I forgot, my sisters name is [name]Frankie[/name] (short for [name]Frances[/name])


Oh that’s fun! I named my sister when I was 13 :slight_smile:

I think [name]London[/name] should go because it doesn’t have the same lovely classic feel as [name]Lidia[/name] and [name]Frances[/name]. Same goes for [name]Garnet[/name], [name]Angela[/name], [name]Bridie[/name] and [name]Maisy[/name] although [name]Margot[/name] nn [name]Maisy[/name] would be adorable and [name]Garnet[/name] could make a really cool middle name! [name]Shame[/name] your mum’s picking that!

So my favourites are [name]Margot[/name] nn [name]Maisy[/name], [name]Eliza[/name] and [name]Rose[/name]. [name]Vera[/name]'s ok but seems very old lady to me. Did you want more suggestions or just opinions on what you have? [name]Do[/name] you or your sis have a fav?

My Mum really likes [name]Garnet[/name] so she might still pick it as a middle name!
I can’t pick a favourite cos every name is so nice! [name]Frankie[/name] really likes [name]Rose[/name] at the moment but she is like me and can’t decide!

We would love some suggestions!!

[name]Lidia[/name], [name]Frances[/name] and [name]Rose[/name] would be stunning! Or maybe ever [name]Rosalie[/name], [name]Rosanna[/name] or [name]Rosalia[/name] nn [name]Rose[/name]/[name]Rosie[/name]?

[name]Lidia[/name], [name]Frances[/name] and [name]Eliza[/name] would also be lovely and you have a choice of nn’s [name]Elle[/name], [name]Liza[/name], [name]Lizzie[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], [name]Ella[/name]?

Did you like the idea of [name]Margot[/name] nn [name]Maisy[/name] instead of just [name]Maisy[/name]? I just think her name should match the style of you and your sister and [name]Maisy[/name]'s very nicknamey compared to your names. It’s an adorable nick name but I think giving her a more classic name with [name]Maisy[/name] as a nn would work better. There’s also [name]Margaret[/name] but it’s not as fun sounding as [name]Margot[/name] in my opinion.

Like I said [name]Vera[/name] seems very old lady to me, [name]Garnet[/name] is kind of masculine (maybe because me cousin has an uncle [name]Garnet[/name]!) and also it’s not as classic as [name]Lidia[/name] and [name]Frances[/name], [name]London[/name]'s very trendy and modern and nowhere near as classic as [name]Lidia[/name] and [name]Frances[/name], same goes for [name]Bridie[/name], I don’t find it very pretty and it has a trendy feel, and [name]Angela[/name] seems very 70s and dated to me.

Some alternatives:

[name]Vera[/name] - [name]Vivien[/name], [name]Victoria[/name], [name]Veronica[/name], [name]Viola[/name], [name]Verity[/name]?
[name]Garnet[/name] - [name]Gabrielle[/name], [name]Georgina[/name], [name]Giselle[/name], or [name]Grier[/name]?
[name]London[/name] - I wouldn’t go with another L name because that would leave [name]Frances[/name] out, so how about more classic sounding place names? [name]Adelaide[/name], [name]Isla[/name], [name]India[/name], [name]Milana[/name], [name]Ailsa[/name], [name]Odessa[/name], [name]Verona[/name], [name]Brielle[/name], [name]Marin[/name], [name]Sicily[/name], [name]Thessaly[/name], [name]Florence[/name], [name]Savannah[/name], Alora, [name]Catalina[/name], [name]Geneva[/name], [name]Siena[/name], [name]Sierra[/name], [name]Avalon[/name]?

[name]Do[/name] you like any of these suggestions? I can also just make random suggestions based on what I think goes best with [name]Lidia[/name] and [name]Frances[/name] if you like?

I also just realised that you say mum…are you in the UK too? :slight_smile:

I’m Australian :slight_smile:

I like my name but I’ve always found it a bit boring so I want my sister to have a name thats a bit cool, kinda like how [name]Frankie[/name] is a cool nickname.
I like [name]Rose[/name] but I think it might be a bit boring and I don’t really like any of the longer versions.
Some names that we think are cool are (most are nicknames that need full names)

Any ideas?

[name]Izzy[/name] - [name]Isaline[/name], Isola, [name]Isabeau[/name], [name]Isadora[/name]?
[name]Rae[/name] - [name]Aurelia[/name], [name]Ramona[/name], [name]Mireya[/name], [name]Araya[/name]
[name]Kiki[/name] - [name]Catherine[/name], [name]Katya[/name], [name]Caroline[/name], [name]Callista[/name], pretty much anything beginning with C or K!
[name]Lennie[/name] - [name]Leonie[/name], [name]Linnea[/name], [name]Harlan[/name],
[name]Lulu[/name] - [name]Louisa[/name], [name]Talullah[/name], [name]Lucia[/name], [name]Leola[/name], [name]Lelia[/name], [name]Lorelei[/name]
[name]Lilla[/name] - [name]Lilia[/name], [name]Lillian[/name], [name]Liliana[/name], [name]Camilla[/name]
[name]Willa[/name] - I think this is lovely on it’s own! Or [name]Willow[/name], [name]Wilhelmina[/name]
[name]Millie[/name] - [name]Amelia[/name], [name]Camille[/name], [name]Camilla[/name], [name]Millicent[/name], [name]Matilda[/name], [name]Romilly[/name]
[name]Winnie[/name] - [name]Winona[/name], [name]Anwen[/name], [name]Winifred[/name], [name]Arwen[/name]
[name]Aqua[/name] - sorry can’t think of anything for this one! Not keen on it really.
[name]Scout[/name] - see above.
[name]Lola[/name] - I love [name]Lola[/name] on it’s own but also as a nn for [name]Leola[/name], [name]Laura[/name], [name]Lourdes[/name]

Like any?

P.S. My boyfriend and I hope to move to Australia in 2 years! :slight_smile:

Oh and [name]Rose[/name] nn [name]Rosie[/name] is really cute! Or [name]Eliza[/name] nn [name]Lizzie[/name] :slight_smile:

I just discovered [name]Adelpha[/name] which means “beloved sister”
what do you think?
could have the nicknames addie, adele, delphie or alfie???

[name]Adelpha[/name]'s pretty cute but it’s a lot of name and reminds me of [name]Adolf[/name]!

I was also thinking of [name]Romy[/name] for u. That’s one of my fav nn’s ever and can be used for [name]Rosemary[/name], [name]Rosamund[/name], [name]Romilly[/name] or [name]Ramona[/name]. Like any of those?

Maybe you could use [name]Adele[/name] or [name]Adela[/name]?

[name]Adela[/name] is pretty, and I like the nickname [name]Addie[/name] :slight_smile:
[name]Romy[/name] is really cool but I don’t really like any of the longer versions of it… actually maybe [name]Romilly[/name], thats pretty cool!
Does anyone have anymore ideas? Sorry we are so picky!

I love your name (and your sister’s name)! I think [name]Rose[/name] would be lovely. [name]How[/name] about:


[name]How[/name] about [name]Willamina[/name] nickname [name]Willie[/name], [name]Willa[/name] or how about [name]Philomina[/name] nick name [name]Philly[/name] or
[name]Phil[/name] i think either would go well with your names which are soo cool!!! Your
mom has great taste in names I’m sire you guys will come up with the perfect name for your little sis, but what if it’s a boy? [name]Do[/name] you have any boy names picked yet?

No we have no idea about boys names!!!
I have just posted in the boys names forum asking for ideas. If anyone has any I would love to hear them!
