Third baby, vintage and feminine?

What girl’s name would you choose to go with [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] (NN [name_f]Della[/name_f]) and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_u]Jude[/name_u] (NN [name_u]Teddy[/name_u])? I’m looking for something with the same old-world charm as her siblings, with a cute nickname. Some of my ideas so far include:

[name_f]Audrey[/name_f]
[name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u]
[name_f]Harriet[/name_f]
[name_f]Jemima[/name_f]
[name_f]Lilia[/name_f]
[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f]
[name_f]Tabitha[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f]
[name_f]Winifred[/name_f]

Any ideas? Thank you! xxx

Some of my favorite vintage names:

[name_f]Essie[/name_f]
[name_f]Beryl[/name_f]
[name_f]Marjorie[/name_f]
[name_f]Judith[/name_f]
[name_f]Gilda[/name_f]
[name_f]Greta[/name_f]
[name_f]Polly[/name_f]
[name_f]Naomi[/name_f]
[name_f]Dottie[/name_f]

My favorite names on your list are [name_f]Winifred[/name_f] (especially if you used the NN [name_f]Winnie[/name_f]) and [name_f]Colette[/name_f] (although I can’t think of a cute NN for this one- [name_u]Coley[/name_u] or [name_f]Lettie[/name_f], I suppose). Here are a few suggestions.

[name_u]Eden[/name_u] (NN [name_f]Edie[/name_f])
[name_u]Evelyn[/name_u] (NN [name_f]Evie[/name_f]) - Full name is a bit of a mouthful with [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] unfortunately
[name_f]Florence[/name_f] (NN [name_f]Florrie[/name_f])
[name_f]Coraline[/name_f]/[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] (NN [name_f]Cora[/name_f])
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] (NN [name_f]Lissie[/name_f])
[name_f]Loretta[/name_f] (NN [name_f]Etta[/name_f]) - Maybe you could even use [name_f]Etta[/name_f] as a NN for [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] (NN Cici)
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] (NN [name_f]Bea[/name_f])
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] (NN [name_f]Gigi[/name_f] or [name_f]Ginny[/name_f]) - Has 3 syllables like [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] which is kind of fun :)[name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] (NN [name_f]Nora[/name_f])
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] (NN [name_u]Josie[/name_u])
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] (NN [name_f]Char[/name_f] or [name_u]Charlie[/name_u])

Let me know what you think!

My favorites are [name_f]Colette[/name_f], [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] (What about [name_f]Elise[/name_f] or [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]?) [name_f]Harriet[/name_f], [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] and [name_f]Winifred[/name_f].
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] seems too similar to [name_f]Adeline[/name_f].
What about:
[name_f]Margaret[/name_f]
[name_f]Priscilla[/name_f]
[name_f]Caraline[/name_f]
[name_f]Catherine[/name_f]
I really like your first two’s names!

I think [name_f]Violet[/name_f] nn [name_f]Lettie[/name_f]/[name_f]Lottie[/name_f] would be the perfect fit with [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]!

[name_u]Love[/name_u] your taste in names and congrats on baby 3 :slight_smile:

Out of your list my favourites are -
[name_f]Harriet[/name_f] - [name_f]Hattie[/name_f], [name_f]Etta[/name_f]
[name_f]Jemima[/name_f] - [name_u]Jem[/name_u], [name_f]Mimi[/name_f], [name_f]Mia[/name_f]
[name_f]Tabitha[/name_f] - [name_f]Tabby[/name_f], Beti
[name_f]Winifred[/name_f] - Wini

As someone else mentioned, it would be lovely to stick with another 3 syllable name x

Sorry for any repeats!
[name_f]Adeline[/name_f], [name_m]Theodore[/name_m], and…
[name_f]Louisa[/name_f]/[name_f]Louise[/name_f] (nn [name_u]Lou[/name_u], [name_f]Lulu[/name_f], [name_f]Lucy[/name_f])
[name_f]Mae[/name_f]
[name_f]Mayella[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f]
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Eve[/name_f], [name_f]Lina[/name_f])
[name_f]Philippa[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Pippa[/name_f])
[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f]/[name_f]Rosemarie[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Rosie[/name_f], [name_f]Ro[/name_f], [name_u]Romy[/name_u], [name_f]Mari[/name_f])
[name_f]Johanna[/name_f] (nn [name_u]Jo[/name_u], [name_u]Jojo[/name_u], [name_f]Hanna[/name_f])
[name_f]Clarissa[/name_f]/[name_f]Clarice[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Claire[/name_f], Clairie)
[name_f]Lillian[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Lila[/name_f], [name_f]Lily[/name_f])
[name_f]Molly[/name_f]
[name_f]Opal[/name_f]
[name_f]Posey[/name_f]
[name_f]Catherine[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Cate[/name_f], Caty, [name_f]Cat[/name_f], [name_f]Kitty[/name_f])

Yes, I was thinking [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] for [name_f]Winifred[/name_f] and [name_f]Lettie[/name_f] or [name_f]Coco[/name_f] for [name_f]Colette[/name_f]. [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] is so beautiful! I’d probably call her [name_f]Ginny[/name_f] or [name_f]Gigi[/name_f], too. I’ll definitely be adding [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] to my list. She seems like a perfect fit with [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] and I think [name_f]Nora[/name_f] is such a sweet NN. Thanks heaps!

Wow! [name_m]How[/name_m] helpful! Thank you for all your suggestions! I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_f]Florence[/name_f], but unfortunately my sister-in-law and my best friend have used this name. [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] (NN [name_f]Bea[/name_f]) is also very sweet :slight_smile:

Thank you :slight_smile: Yes, we do seem drawn to 3-syllable names so I think we will try to continue that pattern. But, if something else comes around that we love that isn’t three, we’re not opposed. Both children also have single-syllable middle names ([name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]) so I think we’ll try to find a nice, short MN too. [name_m]Just[/name_m] need to find a first name, first :wink:

I have always loved [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u] ([name_f]Evie[/name_f]) and [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] ([name_f]Ellie[/name_f]).

[name_f]Vera[/name_f]
[name_f]Ivy[/name_f]
[name_f]Olive[/name_f]

From your list, my favourite is [name_f]Jemima[/name_f]. [name_u]Love[/name_u] it! But I think [name_f]Winifred[/name_f] or [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] would go best with your kids’ names.

I know! [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] is so cute. I met a little [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] at the park recently and she was divine. [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] has always been a front runner for us. I especially love the nickname [name_f]Hattie[/name_f] and even the boyish [name_u]Harri[/name_u], too adorable.

Getting ahead of myself, but [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] might be a nice one syllable middle name for you :slight_smile:

[name_f]Adeline[/name_f], [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] and [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] / [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]

[name_f]Daisy[/name_f]
[name_f]Delilah[/name_f]
[name_f]Fiona[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f]
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f]
[name_f]Irene[/name_f]
[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f]
[name_u]Meredith[/name_u]
[name_f]Priscilla[/name_f]
[name_f]Rebecca[/name_f]
[name_f]Sabrina[/name_f]
[name_f]Sandra[/name_f]
[name_f]Valerie[/name_f]

Middle name [name_f]Mae[/name_f] would be sweet.
