Hey gals,

Having last minute jitters for my little daughter due this week!

I already have Genevieve Lily and the name we have "chosen" is Estelle Valerie (Valerie after my mm).

Although no other names seem to knock this one off I'm having that last minute panic.

What do you think or any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Estelle Valerie is so lovely I can't imagine anything else knocking it off either! You can take some time afte she is born to see if the name 'settles' and don't have to rush it!

That is a beautiful name. I'd be tempted to steal it except my DD1s name already sounds like Estelle. Estelle lends itself to so many nicknames, plus it is a lovely full name for any age. Great choice, don't second guess it.

Love both your daughters names.

I got the jitters with DS1 but decided I loved the name for a reason and jumped and order all personalised betting and nappy bag and toys etc, so I locked myself into it original.gif

I remember feel the jitters when it was approaching time to name my daughter.  But I am glad I stick to the original plan and now i love it more.  

I think stick with the name otherwise you will regret it.

Beautiful sibset, I personally prefer Stella but Estelle is lovely too. I have been getting the jitters too but at 37 weeks have started to talk to baby by her name and I love it. You don't need to change it.
