Names we like but can't use... what do you suggest?

There are a variety of reasons why we can’t/won’t use the following girl names – but based on this selection, can you give us some new ideas to play around with? I feel like I’ve looked at so many names that nothing jumps out at me anymore.

[name]Juliette[/name] (our daughter’s first name)
[name]Noelle[/name] (our daughter’s middle name)
[name]Cecilia[/name]
[name]Isabella[/name]
[name]Eve[/name]
[name]Scarlett[/name]
[name]Beatrix[/name]
[name]Gretchen[/name]
[name]Bridgette[/name]/[name]Brigitte[/name]
[name]Sanne[/name]
[name]Francesca[/name]

Our last name starts with “Ch” and has the ch sound (thus leading to the vetoing of several names with the “ch” sound).

[name]Adela[/name]
[name]Alessa[/name]
[name]Alethea[/name]
[name]Allegra[/name]
[name]Amabel[/name]
[name]Anais[/name]
[name]Aria[/name]
[name]Ariadne[/name]
[name]Astrid[/name]
[name]Aurea[/name]
[name]Aurelia[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name]
[name]Aviva[/name]
[name]Briony[/name] / [name]Bryony[/name]
[name]Calista[/name]
[name]Carissa[/name]
[name]Cassia[/name]
[name]Cecily[/name]
[name]Charis[/name]
[name]Christabel[/name]
[name]Clarissa[/name]
[name]Clio[/name]
[name]Cordelia[/name]

[name]Iona[/name]
[name]Larissa[/name]
[name]Lavinia[/name]

[name]Sylvia[/name]
[name]Thea[/name]
[name]Verity[/name]
[name]Viola[/name]
[name]Xanthe[/name]
[name]Willa[/name]

[name]Juliette[/name] [name]Noelle[/name] is lovely. elea gave lots of great ideas. If I repeat some, it’s because I’m voting for them too!

[name]Adele[/name] - sort of similar to [name]Noelle[/name] but distinct from the sounds of [name]Juliette[/name].
[name]Allegra[/name]
[name]Annabel[/name] - love with [name]Juliette[/name]!
[name]Calista[/name] - love nn [name]Calla[/name]; shares the t and l with [name]Juliette[/name] which I think is nice
[name]Charlotte[/name]
[name]Clarissa[/name]
[name]Elodie[/name] - one of my favorites with [name]Juliette[/name]. [name]Elodie[/name] [name]Claire[/name], [name]Elodie[/name] [name]Annabel[/name], [name]Elodie[/name] [name]Sage[/name]
[name]Eloise[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] - may be too short with [name]Juliette[/name]?
[name]Felicity[/name] - love [name]Felicity[/name], means happiness and it feels the same as [name]Juliette[/name] to me while not really being similar. [name]Felicity[/name] [name]Louise[/name], [name]Felicity[/name] [name]Sabine[/name], [name]Felicity[/name] [name]Claire[/name], [name]Felicity[/name] [name]Abigail[/name]
[name]Helena[/name]
[name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Mirabel[/name]
[name]Sabrina[/name]

I like [name]Elodie[/name], [name]Annabel[/name] and [name]Felicity[/name] with [name]Juliette[/name].

[name]Annika[/name]
[name]Annabelle[/name] (like this one, like previous post)
[name]Gemma[/name]
[name]Lucy[/name]
[name]Sabrina[/name]
[name]Serena[/name]
[name]Talia[/name]

Look at top UK lists, your choices have a bit of a European flavor to them.

Thanks so much everyone! Here are my faves from the ones you suggested:

[name]Anais[/name] (but would she be called “Anus”?? – I love the [name]Anais[/name] [name]Nin[/name] connotation)
[name]Aurelia[/name]
[name]Briony[/name]
[name]Eloise[/name] (we had tossed this around with DD#1)
[name]Helene[/name]
[name]Leonie[/name]
[name]Sylvie[/name]
[name]Annika[/name] (a little worried since DH is such a [name]Star[/name] Wars buff that we’d be teased for naming a daughter after Anakin Skywalker)
[name]Rosalie[/name] (too Twilight-y??)
[name]Liana[/name]
[name]Rosalind[/name]
[name]Bianca[/name]

I ran a few of these by DH and we were a little inspired by the [name]Rosalind[/name] suggestion. His mom is named [name]Rosalinda[/name]. My mom is [name]Mary[/name] [name]Jane[/name] and we thought about combining them to “[name]Marie[/name] [name]Rosalind[/name]” or “[name]Rosaline[/name] [name]Maria[/name]” or some other combo. What do you think??

[name]Do[/name] you pronounce [name]Rosalind[/name] “[name]ROZ[/name]-a-lind” here in the U.S.? I’m so swayed by the Spanish pronunciation of [name]Rosalinda[/name] that it’s hard for me to hear it otherwise.

Thanks again for all the great feedback!

I like [name]Marie[/name] [name]Rosalind[/name] or [name]Rosalind[/name] [name]Maria[/name].

(I say either roz-a-lind or rose-a-lind depending on my mood :slight_smile:

What about:
[name]Rosemarie[/name] (combining both)
[name]Rosaelia[/name]
[name]Rosalyn[/name]
[name]Rosario[/name]
[name]Roslyn[/name]

[name]Mara[/name]
[name]Marilyn[/name] (combine both)
[name]Marcia[/name]
[name]Marceline[/name]
[name]Maren[/name]
[name]Marielle[/name]
[name]Mariam[/name]
[name]Miriam[/name]
[name]Moira[/name]
[name]Marla[/name]
[name]Marisa[/name]

[name]Gianna[/name] (Italian form of [name]Jane[/name])
[name]Sheena[/name] (Irish)
[name]Jana[/name] (Czech)
[name]Janessa[/name]
Or just use the beautiful [name]Jane[/name] :slight_smile:

Also, check out this post for more “rose” names :slight_smile:
