So our very much planned 4th and probably last baby is due to arrive in June.

We have got a boy's name pretty much set in stone (and it's not Declan Alexander) but are finding girl's names a bit harder this time, probably because I love so many and this is probably the last baby I'll get to name.

For a girl our favourites for first names are currently the following, in no real order:
Eva
Tessa
Lucia (Loo-see-ah)
Arabella
Emily
Estella
Harriet
Liliana
Isabella
Annika
Imogen

Haven't got as far as middle names yet.

Comments, suggestions, everything welcome! original.gif

I love Eva and Emily from your lists, but I'm pretty fussy and wouldn't use Eva when I had a Zara, or Emily if I had a Sophie.

I know, strange right!

Welcome back Fifi and congratulations biggrin.gif. Looks like your names have changed a little in the last couple of years!

Taking into account the other kids' names, I'm liking Imogen. Imogen Tessa?

I have always loved Eva so that's my other vote. Don't think I like any of the others on your list as a middle name for Eva though, have you got any other middle name possibilities?

From you list:

LOVE:
Annika
Lucia (but I pronounce it Lou-Chi-Ah because my Italian friend called Lucia pronounces it like this)


the rest are all ok to me

Welcome back Fifi and congratulations!   I think Tessa is the pick.  Lovely name and fits very nicely with the sibs.  I would stick with two syllables consistent with your other children's names.

I don't think that's too strange, I've got a lot of names I won't use because I think they're too close to my other kids names but if I crossed them all off I'd probably have nothing left lol.

Thanks original.gif.

Yes, we've got a couple of new ones this time, I guess I'm trying to put anything I love out there in case it's the one. I think our boy's choice is probably more different though. Hubby has almost gone completely off Declan so the name we've got it more his suggestion but the more I say it the more I do love it too.

We did strongly considered Eva Lucille for a while when having Zara, so that could still be a possibility.

From your list I like Eva, Harriet & Liliana - although I probably like Lilia, Lillian and Lilith more original.gif

Phoebe was also my first thought when I read your list. Phoebe Arabella would work well.

Welcome back Fifi original.gif

With your kids names I'd go Eva, Emily or Isabella.

Although my favourites from your list are Annika or Tessa.

Would absolutely love Estelle over Estella and adore Lucia but only pronounced loo-chee-ah.

Congratulations! original.gif

Welcome back! And congratulations! wub.gif

I like Harriet, Lucia & Estella from your list.

ETA, oh and I like Tess too, of course. I'm not a fan of Tessa though.

I love lucia. I'm having a boy but if it were a girl that's what we had planned.
I prefer saying it loo see ah

#12 Dylan's Mummy

Posted 09 January 2013 - 11:09 AM

I like Liliana, I worked with one and it was the first time I had heard the name, it's really pretty.

#13 Kikki-B

Posted 09 January 2013 - 11:12 AM

I love Imogen and think it matches your other children's names beautifully. I also like Annika from your list.

Not really loving any of the rest. Some sound a bit frilly while others are a bit plain.

Think they are all lovely. Particularly like liliana and lucia but only pronounced the way you pronounce it, for some strange reason I don't particularly like the pronunciation loo-chi-a, even though they are both legitimate pronunciations

#15 ~Peaches~

Posted 09 January 2013 - 02:02 PM

Congratulations! I love nearly all the names on your list, with Eva and Imogen being my favorites original.gif

#16 PixieVee

Posted 09 January 2013 - 02:11 PM

Harriet is far and away my favourite! I adore ADORE that name original.gif

#17 fifi-trixibelle

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:38 PM

Thinking maybe something like Celeste might make a good middle name for a few of them?

#18 Gudrun

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:42 PM

I like Harriet for a MN, 3 syllables like the MNs of the sisters.

Tessa Harriet  original.gif

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:43 PM

Congrats Fifi, welcome back!

Harriet is probably my favourite from your list. original.gif


#20 fifi-trixibelle

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:43 PM

Harriet does go well too. I suppose I didn't realise my girl's names really had a theme untl now.

#21 little lion

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:52 PM

Nice list. Hmm I like Alice or Elspeth.

#22 Elemenopee

Firstly, I love Declan Alexander, so hope the boys name you have picked out it equally as awesome.
I love Emily and also Tessa/Tess. Have you considered Pippa?

#23 Astrocyte

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:55 PM
