Little sister for Millie and Leo

Hello!

I have a daughter named [name_f]Mildred[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Millie[/name_f]) and a son named [name_m]Leonard[/name_m] (nn [name_m]Leo[/name_m]). I am trying to come up with names for their little sister. I love the name [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] but I’m worried it’s becoming too popular to go with these old names.

I also really like:
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Edith[/name_f]
[name_f]Margaret[/name_f]
[name_f]Frances[/name_f]

Thoughts?

I like [name_f]Edith[/name_f] the best with your crew ( [name_f]Edie[/name_f]).
[name_f]Enid[/name_f], [name_f]Gertrude[/name_f] & [name_f]Bernadette[/name_f] also came to mind as similar stylewise.

Of your list, I think [name_f]Frances[/name_f] matches the vibe of your older children’s names perfectly! [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] and [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] are both gaining in popularity, [name_f]Edith[/name_f] is not far behind, and [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] is not nearly as unexpected.

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

I love your style of clunky old folk names w/sweet spunky nns. [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] is nice, but it is way popular. Kind of loses its sparkle.

Here are my thoughts on the rest of your list-

[name_f]Josephine[/name_f]-I love this name. It has an air of classic elegance & a little sasy-ness. But in a cute way. It’s a little popular. Probably not as much as [name_f]Hazel[/name_f].

[name_f]Edith[/name_f]-This is adorable. Such a fun sweet old lady name, that’s completely ready for a comeback.

[name_f]Margaret[/name_f]-This totally works w/your crew. I don’t think it’s as pretty as [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] or [name_f]Edith[/name_f], but I do love all of the nn options. I like [name_f]Maisy[/name_f], [name_f]Molly[/name_f], [name_f]Maggie[/name_f], [name_f]Peggy[/name_f] or [name_f]Gerty[/name_f]. [name_f]Gerty[/name_f] is y absolute favorite & the least expected.

[name_f]Frances[/name_f]-This seems kind of perfect, honestly. And I really love [name_f]Franny[/name_f] or [name_f]Francie[/name_f] w/your crew.

Here are a few more ideas-

[name_f]Agnes[/name_f]

[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]

[name_f]Dorothy[/name_f]

[name_f]Estelle[/name_f]

[name_f]Fern[/name_f]

[name_u]June[/name_u]

[name_f]Kathleen[/name_f]

[name_u]Louise[/name_u]

[name_f]Lucille[/name_f]

[name_f]Mary[/name_f]

[name_f]Pearl[/name_f]

[name_f]Ruth[/name_f]

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps. :slight_smile:

Frances and [name_f]Edith[/name_f] both fit perfectly! [name_f]Winifred[/name_f] nn [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] also came to mind. [name_f]Millie[/name_f], [name_m]Leo[/name_m], and [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] would be so cute!

Margaret is my favorite! It’s old-fashioned but not dated and works beautifully with her siblings.

Josephine- A cute name with lots of adorable nickname options. I surprisingly like this a lot.

Edith- [name_f]Edith[/name_f] goes wonderfully with her siblings. Also lots of cute nicknames.

Frances- [name_f]Frances[/name_f] & [name_f]Mildred[/name_f] is such an adorable sibset! [name_f]Frances[/name_f] is a very cute name that ages well and never loses that sweet touch.

I think Josephine nn [name_u]Jo[/name_u] or Edith nn [name_f]Edie[/name_f] fit well with your kids’ names.

Thank you! I love [name_u]Jo[/name_u] but I’m afraid it rhymes with [name_m]Leo[/name_m] too much.

I really like [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] and [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] too! I don’t think either are overly popular to the point that you shouldn’t use them. Other lovely options could be [name_f]Penelope[/name_f], [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] or [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u]?
