My husband and I are expecting baby 2 soon and we are already settled on a boys name but are still undecided on a girls name.

We want to use these two middle names, so will need a first name that is not too long and sounds nice with these... Adelaide Matilda.

My short list so far to give you an idea of my style is...

Ivy Adelaide Matilda
Beatrice Adelaide Matilda
Maeve Adelaide Matilda

My husband doesn't like any of these so they probably won't get used.

We would like a name that compliments our daughter's - Fleur.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing everyone's suggestions! Xo

Hi there,

Fleur is a little unusual but pretty so the first name that came to mind is Paisley.

Paisley Adelaide Matilda

Good luck finding something you love!

Yes I should have added that we don't really want anything too popular. We both have names that were in the top 10/20 for most of the 70's, 80's so are scarred for life when it comes to going to school/work and turning around every time you hear your name!

,When I was little I knes some twins named Fleur and Yvette so to me those two always go well together.

I also like Cecily

It's funny isn't it, DH and I have unusual names and were always the only one with our names, had to spell them etc so we've given out kids top 20 names on purpose biggrin.gif

Genevieve

The list of pretty girls names that match are endless. I was looking at French names as they go with Fleur.

I love Camille too. It was top of my list until DH said no! Same with Celeste, I think that's a fabulous name!

We were in Europe for a few weeks recently. It's funny to frequently hear names we don't think are popular in Australia. We heard Camille quite a lot, it sounds very pretty. One night we were at a restaurant and there were 3 Fleur's including our daughter. Yet we've not heard it here!

Simone is nice, uncommon these days but not unheard of.

Haha! I wish I could!

My husbands biggest concern was pronunciation. In your experience do people struggle with it?
We have heard it pronounced as Kah-mill and Kah-mee.

Before I even opened the page I immediately thought 'Maeve' and as its also one of your own suggestions and a totally stunning name, I'm not going to suggest anything else Tounge1.gif

Oh thanks so much! I like it and probably the one that DH likes best too.

So I think I will definitely put these ones back to him and see what he says...

Maeve Adelaide Matilda
Camille Adelaide Matilda
Celeste Adelaide Matilda

At this rate we had better hope its a boy - as we've got a boys name all sorted! Haha!
