Sister for Daphne!

Hello everyone! I’m really struggling to find a name for baby girl #2. [name_f]My[/name_f] oldest is [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Noelle[/name_f]. ([name_f]Daphne[/name_f], because I had a dream where she said her name when I was pregnant, and [name_f]Noelle[/name_f] because she was due between Thanksgiving & [name_u]Christmas[/name_u].)

My short list is: [name_f]Clara[/name_f], [name_f]Fiona[/name_f], [name_f]Chloe[/name_f], [name_f]Bianca[/name_f] & [name_f]Matilda[/name_f]. [name_f]My[/name_f] husband really likes [name_f]Clara[/name_f] & [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f].
We both liked [name_f]Olive[/name_f] but had to veto it because it didn’t sound right with our last name. (Sounds like Oil).

I like [name_f]Clara[/name_f] but I don’t love it. And I don’t want this baby to feel like [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] has the better name. I really don’t like names that are too popular, but I will consider [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] & [name_f]Lillian[/name_f].

I’m due [name_f]April[/name_f] 2021 near [name_f]Easter[/name_f], but most likely will be induced in [name_u]March[/name_u]. If that’s the case, I was thinking [name_f]Clover[/name_f] would be a cute middle name. But that is NOT set in stone.


Clara and [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] are my favorites! But I think [name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_f]Clover[/name_f] would be too much.

Other [name_f]Easter[/name_f] middles:

From your list I really like [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] to go with [name_f]Daphne[/name_f]! I also think [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] goes really well with [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] (not sure if you like that name)!


If not [name_f]Clara[/name_f], would you consider [name_f]Cora[/name_f]? I think [name_f]Cora[/name_f] is a bit punchier and sounds just perfect with [name_f]Daphne[/name_f]!
Or maybe [name_f]Cleo[/name_f]/Clio? That would be a fresh alternative to [name_f]Chloe[/name_f].

Other suggestions:
[name_f]Delia[/name_f] or [name_f]Delilah[/name_f] (if you don’t mind matching initials)

I absolutely LOVE the names [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] and [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] together!! [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] [name_f]Clover[/name_f] does sound a bit repetitive, though. You could go with a different spring themed name like [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] [name_f]April[/name_f] :heart:

Hi there.

Daphne is a lovely name.

Here are my thoughts on your list:

Clara-I like it, but if you don’t love it then scrap it. It’s a bit popular too.

Fiona-That beautiful angel in my profile picture is my [name_f]Fiona[/name_f], so obviously I love it! It works great for a human child too. :grin: It’s just such a great balance of strong, feminine, classic, simple yet not over done & just beautiful. I love it, & it goes well w/Daphne.

Chloe-I like it, & I think that it’s perfect w/Daphne. It’s sweet, light, feminine but not overly fussy. And Greek!

Bianca-This is not my personal favorite for some unknown reason, but it’s a nice name. It’s different yet well known. Smart, feminine, slightly exotic. Very nice fit w/Daphne.

Matilda-I don’t know. Some days I think that this is cute & quirky, & sometimes I think it sounds heavy & clunky. The nn [name_f]Millie[/name_f] is nice though.

Lillian-I think it’s a smart beautiful classic. It’s pretty popular, but maybe not as much as just [name_f]Lily[/name_f]? I could be wrong. [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] & [name_f]Lili[/name_f] as sisters would be darling though.

Rosalie-I like this a lot. It’s vintage, but sounds fresh & sweet. And it comes w/the adorable nn of [name_f]Rosie[/name_f].

Too bad you can’t use [name_f]Olive[/name_f]. I love [name_f]Olive[/name_f] so much!

The idea of [name_f]Clover[/name_f] as a mn is adorable, by the way.

Hope this helps. :slight_smile:

[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] is lovely and [name_f]Clover[/name_f] is a great middle!
I like the suggestions of [name_f]Cleo[/name_f] and [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f]. I just wanted to add [name_f]Esme[/name_f]
[name_f]Esme[/name_f] [name_f]Clover[/name_f] is perfect!

Daphne is lovely! Suggesting…

Daphne and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u]
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] and [name_f]Audra[/name_f]
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] and [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] and [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] and [name_f]Lucille[/name_f]
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] and [name_f]Marguerite[/name_f]

Aaw, that’s too bad. :confused:

Matilda [name_f]Clover[/name_f] would be swoonworthy!!! I love [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] with [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] :heart_eyes:

Daphne and [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] would make a great sister set.

My a favorite combo of mine is [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] and [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f]

I also love the suggestion of [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] and [name_f]Fiona[/name_f]!

Daphne is such a great name and has a lot going for it. It’s fun, beautiful and strong. I like your list but don’t feel that any of them have what [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] has!

Ines/Inez [name_f]Clover[/name_f]
[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] [name_f]Clover[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Clover[/name_f]
[name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] [name_f]Clover[/name_f]
[name_f]Astrid[/name_f] [name_f]Clover[/name_f]
[name_f]Eloise[/name_f] [name_f]Clover[/name_f]
[name_f]Stella[/name_f] [name_f]Clover[/name_f]

Rosalie [name_f]Olive[/name_f] I think. [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] is as nice as [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] and [name_f]Olive[/name_f] is a nice touch.

I really love [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], especially with [name_f]Daphne[/name_f]! I will suggest [name_f]Lucy[/name_f]! I have always loved the combination of [name_f]Lucy[/name_f] [name_f]Bloom[/name_f]. [name_f]Bloom[/name_f] for the imagery of her [name_f]Spring[/name_f] due date.


I quite like [name_f]Clara[/name_f] and [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] but I also love the idea of a spring baby with the middle name [name_f]Clover[/name_f] and [name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_f]Clover[/name_f] is a little too alliterative for me.

How does your partner feel about [name_f]Bianca[/name_f] and [name_f]Matilda[/name_f]? Because both of those from your list i think would be great with [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] as well. Matda [name_f]Clover[/name_f] seems very sweet to me.

If he isn’t felling any of those other names on your list, but you aren’t in love with [name_f]Clara[/name_f], maybe

I think a sister set of [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] and [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] would be way too cute!!!
