Looking for a name for the new baby due next year. Sibling is Sophie and our surname is one syllable 'ell' one.

Would love opinions on my girls list.

Celeste
Camille
Elise
Amelie
Juliet
Cecily
Colette
Claudette
Lucy
Elsie
Elizabeth
Katherine (Katie)

The names I like and that fit well:

Celeste
Camille
Lucy (and would be cute to spell it Lucie to go with Sophie to keep the French thing going)

Elizabeth (with NN Lizzie or Beth) and Katherine (with NN Kitty) would also fit. (Katie has not yet recovered from overuse for me.)

Claudette and Colette are also great names that fit well enough but not as well as the above.

Love Juliet and Cecily but they seem a bit 'big' with Sophie.

Not a fan of Elise, Amelie, Elsie.

I like everything on your list except Elise.

To go with Sophie I narrow it down to

Celeste
Camille
Amelie
Lucy
Elizabeth
Katherine

which is not very narrow, but I agree with Gudrun about Celeste, Camille and Lucie being beautiful fits with Sophie.

Gorgeous names. My fave is Lucy.

Thanks for all the feedback ladies. Hmmm, Celeste is doing well. Now I will have to see if I can get it past DH. I love Beth as a nickname for Elizabeth but as our surname starts with a B, it doesn't really go.

I'm surprised Elsie isn't liked better - I think it's quite nice (perhaps I'm more used to it, as I see it as a Scottish name?)

From your list I love Celeste as a stand alone name but I think Juliet & Elise are lovely & sound better with Sophie.

I have a friend with a Sophie & a Charlotte, I think they sound good together.

OP, I LOVE Elsie!
Our DD was going to be Elsie too until the very last moment when she became Eliza! I also think of Elsie as a Scottish name it's my favourite along with Elizabeth to go with Sophie.

Celeste
Juliet
Elizabeth
Katherine (Katie)

Are my favourites. I don't like Elsie but I do like Elspeth, which feels very Scottish to me? I admit I love Catherine more than Katherine but both are nice really.

Celeste is gorgeous but I think I might put it in the middle as that second syllable emphasis will make it flatter most first names and also Sophie is sss-y and Sophie and Celeste would trip me a little.

I adore Elizabeth (my DD's middle name) and Katherine (Katie).

Given your last name is one sylabelle, ends with "ell", I probably would stay clear of Camille and Elsie - but that is my preference.

My favourites from your list are Celeste and Lucy.

I love Celeste.
But would also suggest Eliza as a similar name to your list that works well with Sophie.

#18 tres-chic

Posted 16 December 2012 - 03:12 PM

I love your list. Favourites with your one syllable LN are:

Amelie
Juliet
Cecily (Cecilia would be number one though)
Elsie
Elizabeth
Katherine (Katie)
