What's your favorite girls' name to go with Cordelia and Persephone?

We have a nine-year-old [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] and an almost-six-year old [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f]. [name_m]Just[/name_m] found today that we’re having another girl! We’ve thought of [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f], and [name_f]Theodora[/name_f], amongst others. What are your favorites to go with [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Persephone[/name_f]?

I love [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Persephone[/name_f]! Of the names you mentioned, [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] is my favorite with your other names.

Other suggestions you might like:
[name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Imogen[/name_f]
[name_f]Katherina[/name_f]

I’d love another four syllable name to go with [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Persephone[/name_f]. [name_m]How[/name_m] about [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]? I think they sound beautiful together.

[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f], [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] and [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]

I love [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] and [name_f]Theodora[/name_f].
[name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] is another great suggestion.
Maybe [name_f]Arabella[/name_f]?

First of all, [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] the names [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] - they’re absolutely beautiful! [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] is lovely, but perhaps it strikes too similar a chord with your soon-to-be middle child’s middle name?

Here are some names I quite like:

  • [name_f]Emmaline[/name_f]/[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] (I pronounce it “[name_f]EM[/name_f]-uh-leen” but you could also do “[name_f]EM[/name_f]-uh-line”)
  • [name_f]Lilian[/name_f]/[name_f]Lilianne[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]/[name_f]Aurelie[/name_f]/[name_f]Aurora[/name_f] (I’m thinking more the ballet than the Disney film for that last name, but both work!)
  • Olivie (pronounced “OH-li-vee”)
  • [name_f]Odette[/name_f] (from [name_f]Swan[/name_f] [name_u]Lake[/name_u])
  • [name_f]Georgiana[/name_f]

Here are some [name_m]Shakespeare[/name_m] ideas, because your “[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f]”, “[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]”, and “[name_f]Rosalind[/name_f]” shouts [name_m]Shakespeare[/name_m] loud and clear to me :slight_smile:

  • [name_f]Cassandra[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Diana[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Emilia[/name_f]
  • [name_m]Isidore[/name_m]
  • [name_f]Katharine[/name_f]/[name_f]Katherine[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Lavinia[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Luciana[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Valeria[/name_f]/[name_f]Valerie[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Viola[/name_f]

Congrats on your baby girl!!

[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f], [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] & [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] is lovely!

[name_f]Saoirse[/name_f]
[name_f]Seraphina[/name_f]

I like all the names you are considering, but I think [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] sounds the best with [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Persephone[/name_f].

Elsinore ([name_m]Hamlet[/name_m]'s castle)
[name_f]Imogen[/name_f]

I love [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f], [name_f]Theodora[/name_f], and [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] with [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Persephone[/name_f], both gorgeous names by the way!

[name_f]Isadora[/name_f]

[name_f]Eleanora[/name_f]
[name_f]Leonora[/name_f]

I really like [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] and [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] but immediately thought of [name_f]Miranda[/name_f]. Perhaps because of the Shakespearean connection.

I love [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] with [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Persephone[/name_f].

Lots of other lovely names have already been suggested, so just wanted to add [name_f]Amaryllis[/name_f] and [name_f]Arianwen[/name_f].

Since [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] evokes Greek mythology and [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] evokes [name_m]Shakespeare[/name_m], other literary names I like for you are:
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]
[name_f]Guinevere[/name_f]
[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f]
[name_f]Helen[/name_f]
[name_f]Isolde[/name_f]
[name_f]Cressida[/name_f]
[name_f]Amoret[/name_f]
[name_f]Una[/name_f]
Clarissa
Estella

I love [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] with sisters [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Persephone[/name_f].

My favorite of your choices is [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f].

I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] your daughters’ names! I think [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f], [name_f]Persephone[/name_f], and [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] are my favorites from your list [name_f]Theodora[/name_f] would be my second pick. I love the idea of all the sisters having an “o” in their name.

My top suggestion for you is [name_f]Isadora[/name_f]! [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f], [name_f]Persephone[/name_f], and [name_f]Isadora[/name_f] would make me swoon!

[name_f]Do[/name_f] you already have a middle picked out? [name_m]Will[/name_m] you be going for another one syllable traditional middle to match her sisters? I think another middle ending in -e would be awesome…

[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f], [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f], and [name_f]Isadora[/name_f] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] would be so lovely!

I hope that helps (:
