#1, [name]Elsa[/name] [name]Meredith[/name] - by a long shot. It’s lovely.

[name]Elsa[/name] is one of my favourite names! I love it! I don’t like [name]Meredith[/name] too much though, but it’s a nice combo regardless! Maybe I’d do [name]Elsa[/name] [name]January[/name] if I were to use names from your list :slight_smile:
[name]Claudia[/name] [name]Emanuelle[/name] is very heavy! I don’t care too much for [name]Claudia[/name], but [name]Emanuelle[/name] is a long time favourite! [name]Claudia[/name] [name]Rose[/name] would be better if you want to keep [name]Claudia[/name] up front, but [name]Emanuelle[/name] [name]Bea[/name] would be awesome!
[name]Dagny[/name] [name]Rose[/name] is a perfectly balanced combo, but I don’t like [name]Dagny[/name]. I love that it’s a Norse name and all, and it’s one of the prettier ones that are already in use in the US, but there are SO many better alternatives (I know, I have an extensive list!). [name]Eira[/name] and [name]Idun[/name] come to mind as well as Livny which means ‘New Life’ and gives you the [name]Liv[/name] nickname instead of [name]Dagny[/name] meaning ‘New [name]Day[/name]’ with no pretty nickname in sight!
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Bea[/name] is okay, I love both names but they kind of drown in one another. [name]Olive[/name] [name]Astrid[/name] would be better, or [name]Olive[/name] [name]Meredith[/name].
[name]Juniper[/name] [name]Rose[/name] has two flaws, one being the back to back R’s in the gap and the other is that they’re both plants. It sounds like a new species of Roses or something. [name]Juniper[/name] [name]Elsa[/name] would be awesome since the old lady-esque [name]Elsa[/name] would balance and surprise coming after the modern and upbeat [name]Juniper[/name] :slight_smile:

[name]Fran[/name]”oise gives me a warm fuzzy feeling, but I worry how well she would integrate in any other place than [name]France[/name]. I love her with [name]Olive[/name] - [name]Fran[/name]”oise [name]Olive[/name] :slight_smile:
[name]Shosanna[/name] is missing an H? Shoshanna is lovely, but it needs to have both sh-sounds. Shoshanna [name]Rose[/name] or Shoshanna [name]Bea[/name] would be lovely!
[name]January[/name] is OK in the middle for me, but I generally don’t like J names (with some exceptions). Before I got into names and all, I would never have thought it was a girls name, I liked it loads for a boy! Same with [name]October[/name] which I still don’t accept on a girl.
[name]Astrid[/name] is cute, but I prefer [name]Ingrid[/name]. [name]Astrid[/name] [name]Emanuelle[/name] would be a nice international name :slight_smile: [name]Astrid[/name] [name]Olive[/name] would also be sweet, but [name]Ingrid[/name] has more grace [name]IMO[/name], and [name]Ingrid[/name] [name]Emanuelle[/name] or [name]Ingrid[/name] [name]Olive[/name] would be my choice.
That leaves [name]Stina[/name]. I know a [name]Stina[/name]. [name]Lovely[/name] girl, but I NEVER have nor will I ever like her name! It’s okay enough on it’s own, but it’s originally a pet form of [name]Christina[/name] (which I don’t like either) and I don’t approve of names that are originally pet forms. There are exceptions here as well, [name]Maud[/name] being one of them, but [name]Stina[/name] never appealed to me. Or [name]Line[/name]/[name]Lina[/name], [name]Tina[/name], [name]Mina[/name], [name]Sina[/name] and so on. It’s like giving your girl half a name. If you really love her, [name]Stina[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] would give it some personality. I would recommend [name]Siri[/name], [name]Signy[/name] and Sunniva as Norse alternatives, or maybe use [name]Christina[/name] and nn her [name]Stina[/name] (which makes [name]Stina[/name] the awesome alternative to [name]Chris[/name]). [name]Christiana[/name] is my favourite form of this name though.

[name]Elsa[/name] [name]Meredith[/name] of [name]Olive[/name] [name]Bea[/name] are my favourites, but [name]Elsa[/name] [name]January[/name] and [name]Olive[/name] [name]Astrid[/name] would be awesome ^^

Best of luck!

[name]Elsa[/name] [name]Meredith[/name] and [name]Juniper[/name] [name]Rose[/name] are soo cute!

I absolutely love [name]Elsa[/name] but dont like [name]Meredith[/name] (sorry)

What about [name]Elsa[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] or [name]Beatrix[/name] (since you have [name]Bea[/name] as mn)

My number two choice would be [name]Juniper[/name] [name]Rose[/name]…it sounds really sweet

[name]Elsa[/name] [name]Meredith[/name] - I love this name!
I also love [name]Astrid[/name], what do you think about [name]Astrid[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]?

I really feel like I’ve replied to this before … have I gone mad?

I have to say [name]Juniper[/name] is my favourite, its is on the shortlist for my next daughter - I already have an [name]Elsa[/name]!

I would lash out wildly at the names you have shortlisted and say [name]Juniper[/name] [name]Claudie[/name]
[name]Juniper[/name] [name]Claudine[/name]

which is a bit of a mix, I know.

I also like [name]Meredith[/name] [name]Juniper[/name].

[name]Happy[/name] naming!
