Our DD2 is arriving in 4 weeks and we have a few names we like. DD1 is Payton.
The names we like are:


What do you think? I think they all go with Payton. The surname is 4 syllables and the last one sounds like eee. IYKWIM.
Or does anyone have suggestions of similar names?

I love Paige original.gif It was up there on my list, until I realised it didnt go with our surname (Read)

I like Harper the best. Paige and Payton sound very alike. Someone put forward a name recently I'd never heard of and really liked. Atley. It would sound great with Payton.

I love Paige!
Although u have to consider do u want both 'P' names?
And if u will be having a third baby, would that be a 'P' name also (u know how some people like to do that?).

Or Paisley?

Good luck!

I really love Paige :wuv:

Harper and Hadley sound way too masculine for a girl!

My eldist is Paige...I love her name obviously!
Harper was my absolute fav name for years..before it got popular...but it never went with our surname.

I like Paige, but as others said, are you ok with 2 pay...sounding names?
I also like Hadley, but not a fan of Harper. It has become quite over-used, and I think this style of names particularly works well when they are more unusual.

other suggestions:

I loved Harper until the beckhams used it. I would have used it for a boy or girl......

I probably wouldn't do Paige and Payton, and Harper and Hadley are OK (prefer Harper)

Paige is nice but not great with Payton. Other options for that smooth streamlined-yet-femme sound could be Jade, Rain, Claire, Maeve, Mae, Eve, or under-appreciated Jane? I admit with a 4 syllable last name a 1 syllable first would be tempting.

As far as Hadley, all -ley names tend to annoy me but I am a curmudgeon.

Not a big fan of Harper. A few of my favourite -er sound names for girls are probably: Hesper, Vesper, Briar, Winter, Demeter (Demeter NN Demi is either really cute, or I'm insane, or both). I left out the ones that EB has really always hated. There's also Asha which I like but always forget to put in this category.

I like Paige but I think it's too similar to Payton.

I dislike-
Hadley. I think if it as a boys name.
Harper. So over used.

I really like all your choices.  Paige is similar but I don't think it is a big issue..  If your surname ends in an eee sound maybe Hadley is not the best fit .  Congrats on the soon to be new arrival! I'm due the same time  original.gif

Paige goes best
I dont think Hadley would be a good fit with your surname

Harper would go well too
