Trying to narrow down list for baby #4

Hey all! Due with baby #4- our second girl!- in [name_u]January[/name_u] and we are trying to come up with a list and then narrow it down from there over the coming months. I’d love feedback or suggestions!

All her siblings have honor names with nicknames we use most often:
[name_m]Jeffrey[/name_m] [name_m]Edwin[/name_m] “[name_u]Jay[/name_u]”
[name_f]Virginia[/name_f] [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] “[name_f]Ginny[/name_f]”
[name_m]Mark[/name_m] [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] “[name_m]Mac[/name_m]”

Last name is short and rhymes with [name_f]Hope[/name_f]. Middle name will most likely be [name_f]Elise[/name_f] or [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] though those are still flexible too. Here’s our list so far…

Sylvia “[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f]”
[name_f]Harriet[/name_f] “[name_f]Hattie[/name_f]”
[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] “[name_f]Rosie[/name_f]”
[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] “[name_f]Suki[/name_f]”
[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] “[name_f]Greta[/name_f]”
[name_u]Anne[/name_u] “[name_f]Annie[/name_f]”

I love [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] with your other names, and suki is such a fun nickname

You have so many great options! I love all of the nicknames for each name as well. [name_f]My[/name_f] favorites would be:
•[name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
•[name_f]Harriett[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] (Though I personally prefer [name_f]Henrietta[/name_f])
•[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
•[name_u]Anne[/name_u] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f]

Ginny & [name_f]Hattie[/name_f] is adorable! So is [name_f]Ginny[/name_f] & [name_f]Greta[/name_f]!

I think all of those names are good choices!
In terms of flow, I like:
[name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
[name_u]Anne[/name_u] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]

Sylvia [name_f]Estelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Harriet[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]

I feel like [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] is too close to [name_m]Mark[/name_m], even if they both go by nicknames. [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] feels too close to [name_m]Mac[/name_m]’s middle name, [name_m]Harrison[/name_m], which is a shame as otherwise I think that it would be an excellent choice for you.

Love [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] “[name_f]Suki[/name_f]” [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] with your crew!!

I like [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] best. [name_u]Anne[/name_u] is nice as well

I would say [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] or [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f], they are gorgeous!
[name_f]Ginny[/name_f] & [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] sound so cute together.

My second favorite is [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
In Third: [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] :blush:

What about [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f], [name_u]Anne[/name_u] + [name_f]Elise[/name_f]? And [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] doesn’t sound too bad. I also like [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f]!

Agree with @RubyAlexandria ! [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] and [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] are beautiful! :two_hearts:

Sylvia feels perfect

I actually love [name_f]Margaret[/name_f], but too close to [name_m]Mark[/name_m]. [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_f]Harriet[/name_f]! Though I’m not sure because of [name_m]Mark[/name_m]’s middle name. [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] or [name_u]Anne[/name_u] :slight_smile:

I think [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] and [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] would be perfect, but [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] is too close to [name_m]Mark[/name_m] and [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] is too close to [name_m]Harrison[/name_m]. I like [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] for you. [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f].

Ah yes, we’ve tried to take naming baby-by-baby…without trying to “save” names for the future…I agree with a couple of you that [name_f]Harriet[/name_f]/Margaret are too close to [name_m]Mac[/name_m]’s name! We didn’t even think about our girl list when we chose it.

I’m just having a hard time letting go of those two favorites, hah. This is in all likelihood our last baby, so I am feeling a bit of grief narrowing down our list, tbh. Naming a baby is hard! :crazy_face:

Thank you all for your lovely feedback though, we’ve been reading through them and it’s been helpful! Nice to see some fresh perspective after a few weeks looking at the same list over and over.

Rosalie nn [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] seems like the best fit with her sibling names! [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] is amazing!

The nn [name_f]Suki[/name_f] is definitely my favorite :heart_eyes:

With [name_m]Jeffrey[/name_m], [name_f]Virginia[/name_f] and [name_m]Mark[/name_m] I would go for [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:, but I also like [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] very much! [name_u]Anne[/name_u] and [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] are very cute too, but not as well matched with your children’s names.
