sister for Finn

I am having a baby girl in a week. I cannot decide on a name. I have a son called [name]Finnegan[/name] [name]Scott[/name], but always goes by [name]Finn[/name]. I’d like a girls name that is old, but coming back into fashion and can be shortened to a cute nickname. I don’t want the name to start with an F. It also doesn’t have to be an Irish name. Thanks for your help.


Thanks for the suggestions. I forgot to mention that I’d like her to have my middle name, [name]Jane[/name], as my son has his father’s middle name.

[name]Adeline[/name] [name]Jane[/name] “[name]Addie[/name]”
[name]Camilla[/name] [name]Jane[/name] “[name]Millie[/name]”
[name]Emmeline[/name] [name]Jane[/name] “[name]Emmy[/name]”
[name]Gwendolen[/name] [name]Jane[/name] “[name]Gwen[/name]”
[name]Harriet[/name] [name]Jane[/name] “[name]Hattie[/name]”
[name]Katharine[/name] [name]Jane[/name] “[name]Kit[/name]”
[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Jane[/name] “Lyddie”
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Jane[/name] “[name]Mattie[/name]”
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Jane[/name] “[name]Romy[/name]”
[name]Tallulah[/name] [name]Jane[/name] “[name]Tula[/name]”
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Jane[/name] “[name]Vivi[/name]”

[name]Lemon[/name] :slight_smile:


I was going to suggest [name]Gemma[/name] but [name]Jane[/name] might make it sound a bit parochial.

[name]Finn[/name] is a great name, if my last name was longer I’d vote for that for our next one. [name]Finn[/name] and [name]Hattie[/name] sounds nice. [name]Annabel[/name], [name]Beatrice[/name] (not with an X) also have a good sound to them.

Good luck, you have a great starting point.

irisrose has great name taste!

[name]Cordelia[/name] nn [name]Cora[/name]

Also, [name]Clementine[/name] nn [name]Clio[/name] and [name]Penelope[/name] nn’s [name]Penny[/name]/[name]Nell[/name]

Seraphia [name]Jane[/name] - nn [name]Sera[/name], or [name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Jane[/name]- [name]Cora[/name].

Of all the suggestions given, I love love love:

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Jane[/name] (I met a [name]Ramona[/name] today and I think its the first time I’ve actually met a [name]Ramona[/name] of any age! Its such a pretty name!)
[name]Gwendolen[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Clementine[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Celia[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Arabella[/name] [name]Jane[/name] (but mostly because I named my daughter [name]Arabella[/name] and really wanted to name my upcoming boy [name]Finn[/name] :smiley: )
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

Of those, I’m in love with [name]Gwendolen[/name] the most. Only thing is [name]Finn[/name] and [name]Gwen[/name] is a little matchy-matchy. My next pick would be [name]Alice[/name] or [name]Violet[/name]. Btw, I also think [name]Jane[/name] is a wonderful mn. It sounds great with so much!

Ha ha ha ha. I have a 3 year old [name]Gwen[/name] and we just had a boy and named him [name]Finnegan[/name]. Of course I love them both. Go for it! :slight_smile: I don’t think they are too matchy matchy myself.
