Which name do you prefer? Or any suggestions?
Hazel (my nans name but apparently is getting popular?!)
Quincy - love Quin for short
Paisley - have always loved it
Also love Meadow but not sure if I would use it

My sons names are Lennox and Oakley so a name that flowed well would be nice. :-) Thankyou

Hazel by a very very very big lead! I haven't met one baby Hazel yet. I do know one grown up Hazel and love the name.

I quite like Meadow but not sure  I would do it with Oakley - Oak Meadow sounds bit silly together - bit like Pine Fields..


Hazel is ok.

Dont like Quincy

Paisley - unusual but quite like it

My pick is Paisley. It's an old favourite and goes well.   I don't like Quincy for a girl though I quite like Quin.  Meadow would be my second choice though I can see 4kidlets' point.

Not a fan of Hazel and it may have the oak problems as well but being your Nan's name gives it points.

Others:

Ainsley
Airlie
Amity
Bridie
Bryony
Dimity
Fairlie
Pippin
Tully
Shelby
Serenity
Sorrell
Tansy

Good point about Oak and Meadow :-) Lennox means 'from the elm tree's' so I must be drawn to the nature inspired names! (unintentionally) original.gif

I like Hazel. But going by the names of your other children Quincy would fit, even though it's not a name I like, it seems as though you like slightly more unusual names so Quincy might be best for your family. Quinn for short is nice. Paisley and Medow seem a bit hippy compared to the names of your other children.

I like Quinn but not Quincy, and think it makes a fantastic stand-alone name. I don't mind Hazel.

Meadow is a little out there for me, and Paisley reminds me of 1970s wallpaper (not that it's a bad thing, but that's all I think of).

I love Hazel and quite like Paisley, love the sound of Meadow but don't think I'd have the guts to use it.

I quite like Quincy but prefer Quinleigh. original.gif

Sorry OP, I don't like any of them. But then I'm not a fan of the old fashioned names making a come back.

#15 la di dah

I love Hazel. A lot. It's on my own list, and I have no grandmothers named it for a reason.

Quin(n) is getting pretty popular for girls, at least in the US, but its okay. Prefer Quintana or Quintina as a long form.

I don't really resonate with Meadow but I like Magnolia and Marigold so I'm not one to judge, though I think those do have more of a range of nicknames. Morwenna/Morgana is also really pretty but rather old-fashioned.

I don't like Paisley but I like Phoebe, Petra, and Penelope. I'd call a Penelope either Penny or Pepper.

Quincy will always be a cantankerous old medical examiner to me.

Really like Hazel.

I like Meadow too but a nn 'Meddy' would put me off.

How about:

Fern
Dawn
Wren
Tessa

I love Paisley and Quincy, like Meadow - but agree it's kind of hard to use, and not with Oakley. Not so keen on Hazel, though I don't think it's particularly popular.

I definitely don't like the name Hazel. It's ugly, old fashioned (but not in a "comeback" kind of way), and feel sorry for any child who's landed with it.
Love Quincy and Paisley though.......love Quinn and Peyton too.

Gorgeous name!
