I have 3 DD's named Tia Jade, Evie Rose and Isla Ruby, I am currently 15 weeks pregnant so starting to think of possible names.
I know none of our names are adventurous but I wouldn't rule those types of names out, We want a short name and something quite girly. We are also considering Poppy as a middle name after my dad.

Cleo is a name that I can't get out of my head at the moment but not really sure if it flows with the other names.

Thanks ladies  biggrin.gif

Cleo is really nice and Poppy goes perfectly with your other girls middle names even though you said it would be after your dad (Jade & Ruby + Rose & Poppy).

I like Jayda too as pp have said but I think Cleo Poppy flows better.

I'm going to go against the grain and say that although I like Poppy and Cleo, I don't think they go together very well.

I think Cleo would go better with a single syllable name...... Feel free to disagree, but just thought I would share!!

I agree - Cleo Poppy doesn't work for me either.  I like them separately though

Thank you for your replies so far, none of the suggestions are jumping out at me right now. It would appear a 4th girls name is harder than I first thought.

Should have another e sounding  ending name to match Evie-  and 3 letters


or you could go 5 letters


or others


sorry I dont like Cleo,  
Poppy, Daisy,  Lily or Ivy would be good as a middle to match the others

What about Poppy Cleo?

#19 elle-M

Posted 22 November 2012 - 12:59 PM

Yes what about Poppy as a first name? I like it, it's feminine and simple.

Tia, Evie, Isla and Poppy.

Gorgeous names by the way!

Thank you for more ideas  original.gif

I think it would get confusing if we called her Poppy and my dad poppy. although the girls have started to call him pops now. Its a shame we call him poppy really because I do like the name.

I think Cleo Poppy is lovely and goes well with your other names. Although some good names have been suggested I still like this heaps!
