Now that I've got your Attention!!

I needed something catchy to draw you in. I hope that worked.
My wonderful hubby and I are expecting our first child and we are already the naming process to be extremely daunting.
We agree on and like so many names, I think it would almost be easier if we were polar opposites in the area.
We don’t know and don’t intend to know what the gender of our little one is, so this is just our girls list.

Any feedback would be great. Please don’t spare our feelings, if we’ve picked something really popular, let us know. Brutal honesty would be more than welcomed.



I don’t think you’ll have much trouble getting opinions. People on here love long lists, particularly if they’re girl names. It’s the boy names you really have to fight to get feedback lol.

[name]Adelaide[/name] - I love [name]Adelaide[/name], It has the length and stability of something like [name]Katherine[/name], but it’s much less used. The only problem is the nicknames. I think [name]Heidi[/name] is adorable. Hate [name]Addie[/name] though.
[name]Adele[/name] - Also nice, but I prefer [name]Alice[/name] and [name]Adelaide[/name]. You could also use [name]Adelaide[/name] or [name]Adeline[/name] as a full name and this as the nickname.
[name]Adeline[/name] - [name]Adelaide[/name] or [name]Alice[/name] are nicer to me.
[name]Alice[/name] - I love love love [name]Alice[/name]. It was my top pick when I thought I might be having a girl.
[name]Amelia[/name] - Nice, but i’ve never been crazy about it.
[name]Annelise[/name] - Dislike. Too composite feeling for my taste.
[name]Audrey[/name] or [name]Aubrey[/name] - [name]Audrey[/name] is much nicer than [name]Aubrey[/name] in my opinion. [name]Aubrey[/name] lacks the class that makes [name]Audrey[/name] appealing to me. [name]Audrey[/name] makes me think movie star and [name]Aubrey[/name] makes me think Reality tv show.
[name]Beatrice[/name] - I love [name]Beatrice[/name], although I favor [name]Beatrix[/name] slightly.
[name]Blythe[/name] - [name]Love[/name] [name]Blythe[/name], strong and feminine.
[name]Briar[/name] - I’m not big on [name]Briar[/name]. Never understood why people consider it a female name. It’s very masculine to me, and I’ve read a book with a male [name]Briar[/name] in it.
[name]Camille[/name]/[name]Camilla[/name] [name]Both[/name] nice. [name]Millie[/name] is a cute nickname.
[name]Caroline[/name] - My other top female name. [name]Caroline[/name] is beautiful and timeless.
[name]Cecilia[/name] - Is hard for me to say. [name]Celia[/name] is simpler and more beautiful to me.
[name]Charlotte[/name] - [name]Lovely[/name], but everyone knows this. I love [name]Charlotte[/name] itself, and [name]Lottie[/name]. Hate [name]Charlie[/name] as a nickname for it though.
[name]Cordelia[/name] - Not a fan. The cord thing sounds so ugly to me.
[name]Delilah[/name] I think [name]Delilah[/name] is lovely.
[name]Diana[/name] - Another name I really love that most people seem to pass over.
[name]Eleanor[/name] - A lovely classic. [name]Plenty[/name] of good nicknames.
[name]Elizabeth[/name] - [name]Elizabeth[/name] is possibly the archetype for a perfect name. Endless nicknames and plenty of history.
[name]Emeline[/name] - Not a fan. Also has a composite feel to me rather than it’s own identity.
[name]Hazel[/name] - Nice vintage name.
[name]Jane[/name] - Underrated classic. Works extremely well. It’s hard to find a one syllable girl’s name that has as much class and history as [name]Jane[/name].
[name]Joanna[/name] - I prefer [name]Johanna[/name], makes it feel more distinct to me.
[name]Julia[/name] - Nice, but not spectacular. Very safe choice while still having enough edge to not be boring.
[name]Katherine[/name] - [name]Love[/name] [name]Katherine[/name]. Particularly [name]Kitty[/name] as a nickname.
[name]Laura[/name] - Same feeling to me as [name]Julia[/name].
[name]Lorelei[/name] - [name]Love[/name] it theory, but I find it unruly for everyday use and hard to nickname.
[name]Louisa[/name] - Vintage name that’s recently been growing on me.
[name]Patience[/name] - Boring. I don’t dislike virtue names, but this one seems stuffy and overly pretentious.
[name]Pearl[/name] - Nice vintage name.
[name]Penelope[/name] - I really like [name]Penelope[/name], and I love [name]Poppy[/name] as a nickname.
[name]Seraphina[/name] - Nice name, but a little too frilly for my taste. Also a name most people still have a hard time adjusting to, although I’ve never seen why.
[name]Stella[/name] - Nice, but getting pretty generally popular. Also doesn’t have the same presence as you other names.
[name]Susanna[/name] - I prefer it [name]Susannah[/name], but either name I think it’s a fantastic name. I like [name]Sukey[/name] or [name]Annie[/name] as nicknames. I don’t feel like [name]Susie[/name] is quite ready to come back yet.
[name]Vivian[/name] - Nice name but I’ve never been crazy about it. Also getting very common.

So I really like: [name]Adelaide[/name], [name]Alice[/name], [name]Beatrice[/name], [name]Blythe[/name], [name]Caroline[/name], [name]Delilah[/name], [name]Diana[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name], [name]Jane[/name], [name]Katherine[/name], [name]Penelope[/name], and [name]Susannah[/name].
You’ve got a really good list though, there were only a couple I can say I disliked.

Overall, I think your list is great!

My favorites are [name]Amelia[/name], [name]Caroline[/name], [name]Lorelai[/name], and [name]Louisa[/name].

Most on your list are names that I really liked but my husband wasn’t wild about.

you have lovely choices! some of my fav are [name]Adelaide[/name], [name]Adele[/name], [name]Amelia[/name], [name]Camille[/name], [name]Charlotte[/name], [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Julia[/name], [name]Lorelei[/name], [name]Seraphina[/name], [name]Stella[/name] and [name]Vivian[/name]

im naming my dd [name]Adelaide[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name] so naturally im in love with them. im prepared for some unusual comments when shes born because both names are not mainstream and might take a while for ppl to get used to…

[name]Adelaide[/name] - I have a daughter with this name. I love it. Its just perfect in every way!
[name]Adele[/name] - I like it more as a nickname, but not even then…
[name]Adeline[/name] - Cute enough, but I still prefer [name]Adelaide[/name] :wink:
[name]Alice[/name] - [name]Lovely[/name]! Might get even more populary though
[name]Amelia[/name] - Great choice
[name]Annelise[/name] - It was on our list, but I like the spelling [name]Anneliese[/name] more. you could use a lot of different nicknames!
[name]Audrey[/name] - [name]Love[/name] it
[name]Aubrey[/name] - Not so keen on this one.
[name]Beatrice[/name] - Not a favorite
[name]Blythe[/name] - Doesn’t sound very girly, and I like girly names.
[name]Briar[/name] - Above.
[name]Camille[/name] - Classic and it has a nice feel
[name]Caroline[/name] - Nice!
[name]Cecilia[/name] - Very musical if you ask me
[name]Charlotte[/name] - [name]Love[/name] it! This is what we would have named [name]Oliver[/name], if he was a girl that is. :slight_smile:
[name]Cordelia[/name] - I think of corn
[name]Delilah[/name] - I don’t like the sound of it
[name]Diana[/name] - Never liked it. Dated in a bad way
[name]Eleanor[/name] - Classic and nice enough
[name]Elizabeth[/name] - classic, but maybe boring? Would you use a nickname?
[name]Hazel[/name] - I don’t like color names
[name]Jane[/name] - Classic and also my sister’s middle name. But maybe a little boring?
[name]Joanna[/name] - Its alright
[name]Julia[/name] - Very nice. I’m falling for it!
[name]Katherine[/name] - Nice enough but nothing I would use
[name]Laura[/name] - Above
[name]Lorelei[/name] - Dated and [name]Gilmore[/name] Girls
[name]Louisa[/name] - Never liked it
[name]Patience[/name] - I don’t like virtue or word names, either
[name]Pearl[/name] - No, not a favorite
[name]Penelope[/name] - Its nice and I love the nickname [name]Penny[/name]!
[name]Seraphina[/name] - Not my style
[name]Stella[/name] - I like this a lot. But if you don’t like it, remove it from the list. You two have so many other great names on the list that you both like
[name]Susanna[/name] - I like it spellt [name]Susannah[/name]. Classic!
[name]Vivian[/name] - Ugly!

~ [name]Rosemary[/name]

We took some of the names out.
Triceratops-I really agree with you on [name]Briar[/name]. I actually really like it for a boy, so its going on our list of boys names. Thanks!


[name]Hi[/name]! I’ll comment on your shorter list, okay? I noticed off-hand that you’ve got names of different lengths going on here, so how long is your last name, syllable-wise? [name]Do[/name] all of these work with your last name? That’s an easy way to cut down the list…

[name]Adelaide[/name] - It’s great. Comfy and cozy yet still a bit chic, [name]Adelaide[/name] is a true vintage classic.
[name]Alice[/name] - Fabulous, whimsical, yet still elegant. [name]Alice[/name] is such a fun, energetic, playful name with literary pulls.
[name]Amelia[/name] - I like [name]Amelia[/name], but I definitely won’t say I love it. It’s on the rise, for sure! [name]Love[/name] -lia names, though.
[name]Audrey[/name] - [name]Audrey[/name] is a true classic, romantic yet understated. But, it doesn’t feel that special to me, honestly.
[name]Beatrice[/name] - [name]Bea[/name] is one of my favorites, and [name]Beatrice[/name] is wonderful, but I think [name]Beatrix[/name] replaces the stuffy with whimsy!
[name]Camille[/name] - A different feel than your other names, because it isn’t vintage. Romantic and sophisticated, for sure.
[name]Caroline[/name] - A favorite of mine, elegant, feminine and strong. [name]Caroline[/name] is a perennially popular name, though, rightly so.
[name]Charlotte[/name] - On my own list! [name]Charlotte[/name] is youthful and fun yet still adult and sophisticated. Can’t go wrong!
[name]Eleanor[/name] - [name]Eleanor[/name] is a classic getting much more attention now, yet it feels very bland to me, personally.
[name]Elizabeth[/name] - The epitome of classic favorites, [name]Elizabeth[/name] is full of charisma and charm. [name]Eliza[/name] would be more unique!
[name]Hazel[/name] - One of my absolute favorite vintage nature names, [name]Hazel[/name] has strength and charm. A winner!
[name]Jane[/name] - Not as long as your other choices, but [name]Jane[/name] packs a punch in her small package. Often overlooked, but sweet!
[name]Johanna[/name] - This name feels different than your other choices, and I prefer [name]Johannah[/name] or the vintage [name]Josephine[/name]…
[name]Katherine[/name] - It might be time for [name]Katherine[/name] and variants to retire as a first name for a decade or so. Middle name?
[name]Louisa[/name] - [name]Love[/name] [name]Louisa[/name], but I definitely love [name]Eloise[/name], and her spunky, whimsical flair, a bit more. [name]Louisa[/name]'s a classic!
[name]Pearl[/name] - Cute, elegant in an “old lady” way, but I don’t care for it as a first name. Excellent nickname for [name]Margaret[/name]!
[name]Penelope[/name] - [name]Love[/name] it! So spunky and fresh, yet still vintage and charming. [name]Penelope[/name]'s got charisma and attitude!
[name]Susannah[/name] - Oh, such a sweet name. I like to think of [name]Susannah[/name] as a Colonial favorite, and she’s definitely a fun one.

Great, great names on this list! Many overlaps with my own personal favorites - [name]Lydia[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] (or [name]Lydia[/name] [name]Gwendolen[/name]), [name]Emmeline[/name] [name]Maria[/name], [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Eliza[/name], and [name]Beatrix[/name] [name]Helena[/name] - so I can’t overemphasize how much I love your list! A couple feel a bit different to me, namely [name]Johanna[/name] and [name]Camille[/name], since they don’t quite fit that vintage classic framework you’ve set up. Also, the varying lengths definitely make me curious about your last name, because [name]Jane[/name] [name]Smith[/name] isn’t as striking as [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Smith[/name], you know?

If I have to list my favorites, I’d pick [name]Alice[/name], [name]Caroline[/name], [name]Charlotte[/name], [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Penelope[/name], and [name]Susannah[/name]. If I were matching potential sibling sets, I might put together names like [name]Adelaide[/name] and [name]Susannah[/name], [name]Alice[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name], [name]Louisa[/name] and [name]Hazel[/name], or [name]Amelia[/name] and [name]Caroline[/name].

I would recommend to you [name]Beatrix[/name] instead of [name]Beatrice[/name], [name]Eliza[/name] instead of [name]Elizabeth[/name], and [name]Eloise[/name] instead of [name]Louisa[/name]. If I get to use those, I’d pair siblings [name]Beatrix[/name] and [name]Penelope[/name], [name]Eliza[/name] and [name]Caroline[/name], and [name]Eloise[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name].

[name]Lemon[/name] :slight_smile:

The short list is fine. :slight_smile:
Our last name is 3 syllables and ends in y. The only name I’m worried about is [name]Penelope[/name], because it ends in the ee sound.

[name]Don[/name]'t mean to be rude, but I don’t really like [name]Beatrix[/name]. I know its not, but it just seems made up to me. Sorry. :frowning:
I knew a girl named [name]Eliza[/name] in high school and she was really, umm, promiscuous. Not an association I want. But I was thinking about spelling [name]Elisabeth[/name] this way to make it a little different. Does this seem too kre8tiv?
[name]Eloise[/name] reminds me of the little girl from the Plaza. [name]Just[/name] like [name]Madeline[/name] is forever the little French girl from the story.

[name]Adelaide[/name]: I’ve never been a fan of this name… the -aide ending seems strange and harsh, plus it reminds me of lemonade.

[name]Adele[/name]: I love [name]Adele[/name], but I love [name]Adela[/name] even more!

[name]Adeline[/name]: It’s an okay name, but really doesn’t do anything for me. I much prefer [name]Adele[/name] or [name]Adela[/name], and they don’t have the pronunciation issues.

[name]Alice[/name]: [name]Alice[/name] is beautiful! One of my favorites,

[name]Amelia[/name]: I really like [name]Amelia[/name], but it’s pretty popular if that’s something that bothers you.

[name]Annelise[/name]: I much prefer [name]Anne[/name], [name]Anna[/name], or [name]Annabel[/name], but there’s nothing wrong with [name]Anneliese[/name].

[name]Audrey[/name] or [name]Aubrey[/name]: [name]Aubrey[/name] is a boy’s name. [name]Audrey[/name] is nice, but popular.

[name]Beatrice[/name]: Not a particular favorite of mine, but it’s a nice name.

[name]Blythe[/name]: I don’t see the appeal of this name… it sounds so lispy and harsh.

[name]Briar[/name]: I can’t imagine this as a name of anyone besides a fairytale character.

[name]Camille[/name]/[name]Camilla[/name]: [name]Both[/name] are lovely!

[name]Caroline[/name]: I love [name]Caroline[/name]!

[name]Cecilia[/name]: [name]Lovely[/name]! Great nicknames, too.

[name]Charlotte[/name]: I love [name]Charlotte[/name], but it’s a teeny bit trendy.

[name]Cordelia[/name]: One of my favorites!! I think it’s beautiful, but it may be too over the top for an actual child.

[name]Delilah[/name]: I don’t really like this name, but I do like [name]Lila[/name].

[name]Diana[/name]: A little bit dated, but a solid, elegant name. [name]Annie[/name] would be a cute nickname.

[name]Eleanor[/name]: I love [name]Eleanor[/name], but it’s popular.

[name]Elizabeth[/name]: You can’t go wrong with [name]Elizabeth[/name]! I prefer the spelling [name]Elisabeth[/name], and it in no way is a kreatif spelling… even if it weren’t an accepted and fairly common variant, it’s still a totally legit spelling.

[name]Emeline[/name]: This spelling seems off. I’ve only seen it [name]Emmeline[/name]. Either way, I’m not really a fan.

[name]Hazel[/name]: [name]Hazel[/name] is great!

[name]Jane[/name]: Nice and classic-- I like it paired with a long, frilly middle.

[name]Joanna[/name]: A nice, solid name, doesn’t really excite me too much.

[name]Julia[/name]: I love [name]Julia[/name]; it’s one of my favorites!

[name]Katherine[/name]: Same as [name]Joanna[/name]… plus I prefer it spelled [name]Catherine[/name] or [name]Katharine[/name].

[name]Laura[/name]: Same as [name]Joanna[/name] and [name]Katherine[/name].

[name]Lorelei[/name]: It has an odd sound-- maybe it’s the ‘lie’ ending… I’m not really a fan.

[name]Louisa[/name]: I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Louisa[/name]! Another one of my favorites!

[name]Patience[/name]: I really dislike this. All virtue names grate on my nerves, and this is perhaps the worst. It sounds like a command-- “[name]Patience[/name]!”

[name]Pearl[/name]: Nice and vintage, not my favorite but a nice name.

[name]Penelope[/name]: I dislike this name greatly, but it seems to be a favorite around here.

[name]Seraphina[/name]: A little too frilly, but good nicknames.

[name]Stella[/name]: It’s very trendy…

[name]Susanna[/name]: I really like [name]Susanna[/name]!

[name]Vivian[/name]: I really like [name]Vivian[/name], too!

You have a great list! My favorites are [name]Adele[/name], [name]Caroline[/name], [name]Charlotte[/name], [name]Cordelia[/name], [name]Julia[/name], [name]Louisa[/name], and [name]Alice[/name]. M

No offense taken at all! It’s your baby, so you need to be most comfortable and in love with her name! Um, no, [name]Elisabeth[/name] certainly doesn’t feel creative or unique - in a bad way - to me, I honestly can’t say it feels creative or unique in a good way, either. I’m sorry if that comes off as rude! [name]Elizabeth[/name] is [name]Elizabeth[/name] every which way, and changing it to [name]Elisabeth[/name] doesn’t really make it “different” in my opinion. I’m not saying [name]Elizabeth[/name] isn’t a great name, because it is - it is just a little on the popular side, but then again, so is [name]Caroline[/name]! [name]Both[/name] wonderful names.

Now, let’s pretend your last name is something like [name]Gramercy[/name]. I agree with you that [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Gramercy[/name] is a bit of a mouthful, but it isn’t that bad! [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Jane[/name] [name]Gramercy[/name] is pretty stunning, and even [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Gramercy[/name] or [name]Penny[/name] [name]Gramercy[/name] are sweet for nicknames. I would say that some of my favorites with your long last name are [name]Alice[/name], [name]Charlotte[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name], [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Louisa[/name], and [name]Susannah[/name]. Good luck!

[name]Lemon[/name] :slight_smile:

[name]Penelope[/name] is officially out now, I think. Our last name is [name]Montgomery[/name], so the nn [name]Poppy[/name] would be kind of weird. [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name], like the actress.

[name]Adelaide[/name] (567)
[name]Alice[/name] (258)
[name]Amelia[/name] (55)
[name]Audrey[/name] (49)
[name]Beatrice[/name] (860)
[name]Camille[/name] (287)
[name]Caroline[/name] (87)
[name]Charlotte[/name] (68)
[name]Eleanor[/name] (218)
[name]Elizabeth[/name] (11) [name]Elisabeth[/name] (554)
[name]Hazel[/name] (294)
[name]Jane[/name] (386)
[name]Johanna[/name] (474)
[name]Katherine[/name] (60)
[name]Louisa[/name] (Not in the Top 1000)
[name]Pearl[/name] (Not in the Top 1000)
[name]Penelope[/name] (252)
[name]Susannah[/name] (Not in the Top 1000)
We don’t want anything in the Top 100.
So, [name]Amelia[/name], [name]Audrey[/name], [name]Caroline[/name], [name]Charlotte[/name], [name]Elizabeth[/name], and [name]Katherine[/name] are out.

Between 101 and 300, we have:

If we narrowed it down even further and took out anything more popular than 300, we’d have:

Oh, yea - [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]. That would be odd!

Of the 101-300 set, here are my thoughts. [name]Alice[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] is gorgeous. It’s classic yet quirky. [name]Camille[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] is pretty, too! The M sounds aren’t too overwhelming here. [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] sounds very regal and upscale. [name]Hazel[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] is sweet and uplifting. [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] is a bit of a mouthful, but not terrible - the [name]Poppy[/name] nickname would kick it for me…

I really love [name]Alice[/name] with your last name!

Of the 300+ set, here are my thoughts. [name]Adelaide[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] is perky and fun. [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] is elegant and almost regal in its sound. [name]Elisabeth[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] sounds like a famous person - I’m checking Google. Well, yes, [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] played [name]Samantha[/name] Stephens in Bewitched! [name]Jane[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] is very simple and sweet, and I like it! [name]Johanna[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] isn’t my favorite - does the “han” of [name]Johanna[/name] and the “mon” of [name]Montgomery[/name] have a rhyming sound when you say it? [name]Louisa[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] is distinctive and feminine. [name]Pearl[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name], despite sounding like a cute little old lady, is delicate and unique. [name]Susannah[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] is cheerful and feminine.

I think my favorite of this set is [name]Adelaide[/name]!

Good luck!

[name]Lemon[/name] :slight_smile:

I like the way you do things, [name]Lemon[/name]! You’re very thorough! :slight_smile:

Okay then, [name]Elisabeth[/name] is out. So, is [name]Penelope[/name]. DH can’t get over [name]Poppy[/name].
I think you’re right about [name]Johanna[/name], it does sound odd with our last name. I had been pronouncing it as [name]Joanna[/name]. I guess that wasn’t quite the right way to say it.

DH is starting to think that maybe [name]Pearl[/name], [name]Jane[/name], [name]Camille[/name], or [name]Louisa[/name] would make a better middle name choice than first name. Thoughts?

That would just leave:


I say [name]Johanna[/name] as jo-HAH-nah, so not like [name]Joanna[/name]. [name]Joanna[/name] would work just fine with your last name, though! I do actually tend to agree with your husband in that [name]Pearl[/name] and [name]Jane[/name] would make better middle names. [name]Camille[/name] and [name]Louisa[/name] could go either way for me. I’d also add [name]Eleanor[/name] and [name]Beatrice[/name] to the middle name pile, personally. So, here are my thoughts on names for you:

[name]Adelaide[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]
[name]Adelaide[/name] [name]Camille[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Jane[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Camille[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] :smiley:

[name]Susannah[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]
[name]Susannah[/name] [name]Jane[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] :smiley:
[name]Susannah[/name] [name]Louise[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]

[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Jane[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Louisa[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Camille[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]

[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Jane[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]

As you can see, I’ve marked my absolute favorites with a :smiley: . Good luck!

[name]Lemon[/name] :slight_smile:

PS [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Inez[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] is a retired female high-jumper and two-time Olympian.

I agree [name]Alice[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] sounds particularly good.

Back to the [name]Elisabeth[/name]/[name]Elizabeth[/name] thing, I think the only reason to change the spelling is nickname opportunity. Using [name]Elisabeth[/name] takes away [name]Eliza[/name], [name]Liz[/name], and [name]Lizzie[/name] opportunities, but opens you up to [name]Elsa[/name], which I think is probably the coolest nickname possible from that name.

As far as [name]Adelaide[/name], [name]Beatrice[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name], and [name]Susannah[/name], why nicknames are you thinking about? Also if you have more daughters those four names fit together extremely well. They’re all the same length and have the same feel to them. That would be an outstanding set of female quads even. Although [name]Alice[/name] sounds lovely with your name, if you’re not super attached to it, it would be easy to eliminate [name]Alice[/name] because she doesn’t fit in as well as [name]Adelaide[/name], [name]Beatrice[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name], and [name]Susannah[/name] fit with each other.

[name]Lemon[/name]-Yeah, definitely not how I was pronouncing [name]Johanna[/name].

[name]Pearl[/name] is the middle name we want. My [name]MIL[/name]'s name is [name]Margaret[/name] (goes by [name]Meg[/name]) and since [name]Margaret[/name] means “pearl”, its rather fitting.

Triceratops-Actually our favorite nn for [name]Elisabeth[/name]/[name]Elizabeth[/name] is [name]Libby[/name].
As far as nns for [name]Adelaide[/name], [name]Beatrice[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name], and [name]Susannah[/name]: We like [name]Adele[/name], [name]Bea[/name], [name]Ellie[/name] or [name]Nora[/name], and [name]Sukie[/name]. You’re right though they do all sound great together. lol glad I’m not having quads, but they would make a nice sibset.
But which one of those names would I pick first?

Well, if I may chime in, I think [name]Pearl[/name] works best as a middle name for [name]Adelaide[/name], [name]Beatrice[/name], and [name]Susannah[/name]. Of those, I like them all equally, honestly. [name]Bea[/name] is my favorite nickname. [name]Adele[/name] for [name]Adelaide[/name] is pretty, but I think I’d use [name]Ada[/name] - [name]Ada[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]. I love that. So, I don’t think you could go wrong with either! If it helps, I think [name]Adelaide[/name] and [name]Susannah[/name] are best for sisters out of your name list…

[name]Lemon[/name] :slight_smile:

My favorite would be [name]Susannah[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] then.

We love [name]Adelaide[/name], [name]Beatrice[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name], and [name]Susannah[/name] equally so we will have to just decide when she or he is born which one fits best.

Thanks for your help!!

I’m posting the boys list shortly if you wouldn’t mind helping me with that one too. :wink:

My vote is with [name]Beatrice[/name] :slight_smile:
