Sister for Eliza Quinn ....Gemma or Chloe?

We are due in 3 weeks and can’t decide on a name for our second girl. Our top picks are [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] and [name_f]Chloe[/name_f]. Our worry is that [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] is too uncommon (we have received some very mixed reactions from friends) and [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] is too common. We loved the name [name_f]Isla[/name_f], but feel it’s too close to [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]. Other names we like but have ruled out include [name_f]Audrey[/name_f], [name_f]Gwen[/name_f], [name_f]Iris[/name_f] and [name_f]Adeline[/name_f].

I would love thoughts on [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] and [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] or other suggestions!

I love [name_f]Gemma[/name_f]! I have heard it only once before and i think its really beautiful. While [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] is also a pretty name i agree it is far more common. [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] do both end in an A sound but thats not necessarily a bad thing while [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] dont really share any sounds. Id opt for [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] personally but they are both lovely and would fit well with big sisters name.

I love both [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] and [name_f]Chloe[/name_f], both goes well with [name_f]Eliza[/name_f].
Like you said [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] is more common than [name_f]Gemma[/name_f], is that a bad thing not necessarily.
Have you decided on a middle name yet?

Her are some other suggestions:


[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] is one of my most favorite names! I like both [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] and [name_f]Chloe[/name_f]. I really love [name_f]Iris[/name_f] and [name_f]Audrey[/name_f]! Have you considered [name_f]Clara[/name_f]? I think it’s a perfect fit.

[name_f]Gemma[/name_f] and [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] are great together. [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] is a pretty name, it just doesn’t go as nicely with [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] (and I overall prefer [name_f]Gemma[/name_f]).

Go for [name_f]Gemma[/name_f]. Your friends will get used to it!

[name_f]Gemma[/name_f] is perfect. I have always loved this name.

Thank you for the suggestions! I especially like [name_f]Clara[/name_f] and [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f]. Middle names we like are [name_u]June[/name_u], [name_f]Mae[/name_f], [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and [name_f]Kate[/name_f].

With [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_u]Quinn[/name_u], I love [name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u], [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u] or [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f]. I like [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] better with [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] than [name_f]Gemma[/name_f].

[name_f]Chloe[/name_f] is more cute-sy and [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] seems more elegant and in-line with [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]. [name_f]Clara[/name_f] has the same vibe to me. [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f], [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f], or [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] or [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u] or [name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] (or maybe [name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]-- I like this middle better with [name_f]Clara[/name_f]) all work well.

[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_u]Quinn[/name_u] and [name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u], [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] or [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f]! :slight_smile:

I love [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_u]Quinn[/name_u], first iff :slight_smile: but I think [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] goes beautifully with it.

[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_u]Quinn[/name_u] is beautiful and spunky I love it! My favorites from your list with [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] are [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] and [name_f]Gwen[/name_f]. I don’t think [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] goes well with [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] at all.

[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] is such a delightful name really feminine but still simple and sweet, which both [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] and [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] have that feel. [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] maybe sounds more contemporary to my ear.
I prefer [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] vs [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] - I don’t know any girls called [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] and I don’t find it is very common.
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] is lovely.
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Esther[/name_f] (means star).
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Maisie[/name_f]
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] and [name_f]Ivy[/name_f]
Because [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] is a lovely vintage sounding name I love it with those other older names.

I really like [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] :slight_smile:
