I'm only about 7.5 weeks pregnant, but already thinking about names!
I have 2 daughters and think this one will probably be another girl.
I'm looking for names that go well with my 2 DD's names: Madeleine Joan and Eleanor Josephine.

DH and I have 3 on our list, (I had loads more but he vetoed them! grrr).

Rosemary
Charlotte and
Genevieve.

Middle name is possibly Patricia, depending on first name.

I like Rosemary from your list, and Rosemary Patricia is a great match with your other girls' names (which I love btw).

I also like Rosalind and Rosamund if these take your fancy.

None of them are ugly but I ADORE Rosemary.

I like Genevieve and NN Gen, and for similar reasons I also like Imogen and Ginevra.

Conversely, I think Charlotte is pretty but I'm not huge on either Charlie OR Lottie. And its also very very popular compared to the other two. Not an auto-dealbreaker for me but not a plus.

I love Genevieve and Rosemary almost equally, slightly favour Genevieve but only slightly.  Both are fabulous. wub.gif

Charlotte I like but is a lot more commonly used at the moment, so would steer clear of that.  Loads of them at my DDs' school, etc.

Yes, I think Charlotte is only on the list as it's a name we both like... But I dont' think we'd ever use it. In DD's day care there are 2 Charlotte's in each room.
But then again, there is also another Eleanor at her day care too! hehe.

Rosemary is our top pick... I love Genevieve but DH is only liking it. I'm just wondering if I'm brave enough to go with Rosemary or not. I've had some pretty bad reactions to it IRL.

Genevieve is my favourite name ever, I love the nickname Evie from it too.
Not sure if your girls have nicknames but they may be Maddie, Ellie and Evie then?
I also like Rosemary with the nn Rosie. Actually, I really like Rose just on it's own as well.

Other ideas:
Harriet
Samantha
Elisabeth
Penelope
Esther
Celeste
Callista
Adelaide
Leonora

Romy is my absolute favourite nickname for Rosemary, followed by Rory.

DH and I both love Rose, but your surname starts with S and it just runs into our surname.

Yes, the girls are Maddie and Ellie, so this one will have a nickname too, Rosemary would be Rosie. But not really sure about Genevieve...

I vote Rosemary, but there's no bad choice here.

I love Rosemary and Charlotte.

What lovely names you have! I agree there are no bad choices there. My favourites are Rosemary and Genevieve. Other NNs for Genevieve could be Vivi, Vevi, Vivette, Vevette (these are used in France I think).
As Rosemary is uncommon for little ones at the moment I'm sure you would get surprised reactions, but it will certainly grow on people!

#12 Bellefin

If Rose doesn't work how about Rosalie, Rosa or another variant? There is also Gwendolyn or Scarlett as alternatives. Celeste is a nice suggestion.

Not sure what you are asking as you seem set with 3 lovely options that all fit well.

I think I would go for Rosemary as well.   Caroline would fit too.

I would go for Vivi for NN to Genevieve

I was looking for opinions on them and some suggestions for other names as I'm not 100% on any of them. Girls names stump me...
