Have a delightful [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] ([name_u]Teddy[/name_u]) [name_m]Joseph[/name_m] and [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] as big sibs.

I like: [name_f]Winnie[/name_f], [name_f]Iris[/name_f], [name_f]Mabel[/name_f], [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] ([name_f]Pippa[/name_f], [name_f]Nellie[/name_f], [name_u]Penny[/name_u] as nn), and [name_f]Frances[/name_f] ([name_u]Frannie[/name_u]), [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] ([name_f]Bea[/name_f]), [name_f]Maeve[/name_f].

I like but can’t use: [name_f]Margot[/name_f], [name_u]Josie[/name_u], [name_f]Millie[/name_f], [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f], [name_u]June[/name_u].

Thoughts? ideas? Last name starts with F.

Love [name_f]Frances[/name_f] or iris with your other children’s names.


Your older kiddos have gorgeous names! I think [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] sounds best with them from your list. [name_u]Love[/name_u] @anon68906791’s suggestion of [name_f]Josephine[/name_f].

I love [name_f]Josephine[/name_f], but dad’s name and big bro’s middle name is [name_m]Joseph[/name_m], so a maybe a little too much “[name_u]Jo[/name_u]…” in one family. (Did not plan ahead for girls! :joy:)

Mabel and [name_f]Frances[/name_f] are fantastic with [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] & [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]! I also quite like [name_f]Winnie[/name_f], but it seems a little nickname-y with [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] and [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]. Would you consider a longer form, like [name_f]Winifred[/name_f] or [name_f]Winona[/name_f]?

Other suggestions based on the names you like:
[name_f]Annabel[/name_f] or [name_f]Amabel[/name_f]
[name_f]Polly[/name_f] or [name_f]Molly[/name_f]


Penelope [name_f]Iris[/name_f] or [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Frances[/name_f]!

Hi there.

Teddy & [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] are delightful!

Here are my thoughts on your current list:

Winnie-I love it. It’s absolutely perfect w/your crew. A bit nick-namey on its own though. I think that [name_f]Wilhelmina[/name_f] nn [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] is perfect, but there’s also a bunch of cool Welsh names that work. Maybe [name_f]Anwen[/name_f], [name_f]Arwen[/name_f], [name_f]Branwen[/name_f], [name_f]Ceridwen[/name_f], [name_f]Gwendolen[/name_f] or [name_f]Morwenna[/name_f]. I like [name_f]Morwenna[/name_f] for you too.

Iris-I don’t know. It’s not my favorite ( does it remind of poison ivy or something???). It just sounds screechy to my ears, but I’m in the minority. Others seem to like it. I find it a bit close to [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] either way.

Mabel-Soooo cute. [name_m]Just[/name_m] perfect for you.

Penelope-I like it a lot w/Theodore & [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]. Especially w/the nn [name_f]Nellie[/name_f]. [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_f]Nellie[/name_f]!

Frances-This is smart, classic, not too fussy, & the nn [name_u]Frannie[/name_u] is the sweetest. It’s well known but not over done. Is it okay w/your ln?

Beatrice-This is darling too. Smart, vintage, a little spunky but also kind of book worm-y. Super adorable w/Teddy & [name_f]Eliza[/name_f].

Maeve-I’m clearly no help, because I like this one too. Sleek, simple, not too common, feminine but not fussy. Beautiful choice.

You have a great list, but here are a few more ideas that you may like:


























Hope this helps. :slight_smile:

My favorite is [name_f]Frances[/name_f]. It’s unexpected but very cute. [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] is nice too.

I like [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] with your children’s names, [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] is nice too but I prefer it as a nickname ([name_f]Winifred[/name_f], [name_f]Winona[/name_f], [name_f]Edwina[/name_f] etc). I don’t know the reason why you can’t use [name_f]Millie[/name_f] but have you thought about having it as a nickname? [name_f]Millicent[/name_f], [name_f]Amelia[/name_f], [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] or maybe [name_f]Melissa[/name_f] ? Again, I don’t know the reason so that may not be a good suggestion but [name_f]Leanora[/name_f] instead of [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]?
Not sure what has been suggested already but here are some ideas:
[name_f]Jasmine[/name_f] or [name_f]Jessamine[/name_f]
Angelie or [name_f]Angelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Rose[/name_f] or a variation of [name_f]Rose[/name_f] ([name_f]Rosina[/name_f], [name_f]Roselle[/name_f], [name_f]Rosette[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], [name_f]Rosanna[/name_f], etc)
[name_u]Dove[/name_u] or [name_f]Doveva[/name_f]
[name_u]Ariel[/name_u] or [name_f]Arielle[/name_f]
[name_f]Emerald[/name_f] or another gem name ([name_f]Sapphire[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u], [name_f]Amber[/name_f], [name_f]Opal[/name_f], [name_f]Pearl[/name_f], etc)
[name_f]Bridget[/name_f] or [name_f]Brigette[/name_f] or [name_f]Bridgette[/name_f]
[name_u]Marie[/name_u] or [name_u]Maria[/name_u]
[name_u]Spencer[/name_u] (Not sure about how you feel about unisex names but you can use the nickname [name_u]Penny[/name_u] with [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] and I think it goes well with [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] and [name_f]Eliza[/name_f])
[name_f]Nicole[/name_f] or [name_u]Nicola[/name_u]

I know you haven’t asked but are you going to keep the J middle name theme? If you haven’t got the middle name picked, some suggestions could be:
[name_f]Juno[/name_f] (maybe a bit too close to [name_f]Jane[/name_f]?)
[name_f]Joanne[/name_f] or [name_f]Joanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Juliet[/name_f] or [name_f]Juliette[/name_f]
[name_f]Janet[/name_f] or [name_f]Janice[/name_f]
[name_u]Jean[/name_u] or [name_u]Joan[/name_u]
[name_f]Judith[/name_f] or [name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_f]Hope[/name_f] you find the right name! :heart:

I love the names [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] and [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] together. I personally think that either [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] or [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] would fit in perfectly with your other kiddos names.

Beautiful classic names for the siblings! [name_m]Just[/name_m] love them. Here are my thoughts:

Winnie: cute but sounds like a NN compared to your other two children.
[name_f]Iris[/name_f]: nah; I like [name_f]Ingrid[/name_f] better
[name_f]Mabel[/name_f]/Maeve: OK as middle names
[name_f]Penelope[/name_f]: adorable; love [name_f]Nellie[/name_f] as a NN
[name_f]Frances[/name_f]: cute, I like [name_u]Frannie[/name_u] as a NN; still has an old lady vibe but possibly coming back now

Love all the other names you like and can’t use… to bad!!

To go along with the classic vibes of your two children, I would also consider:


I like [name_f]Fleur[/name_f], [name_f]Faye[/name_f], [name_f]Rose[/name_f], [name_f]Claire[/name_f] as middle names
