We've had a boy's name picked out for ages - Henry James but we're having another girl :-) DD is Sophie Clare and we need a name for her little sister.
So far I've got:
Which one sounds best? And any other ideas?
Posted 14 January 2013 - 07:47 PM
They are all nice but I love Poppy Mae
Posted 14 January 2013 - 07:49 PM
I like all of them, but Molly is my favourite
Posted 14 January 2013 - 07:54 PM
I think with a Sophie already I'd be going for something that does not have an "ee" sound on the end.
So from your list, that leaves Matilda.
BTW I know that it's not often you use first and middle names without last name, but Henry James would have me thinking constantly of "The Turn of the Screw"!

I can't pick!! All three names are just gorgeous!
Posted 14 January 2013 - 08:04 PM
I like Molly best but like a PP, I'd also go with something that doesn't have an 'ee' ending but I'm not that fond of Matilda.
Sophie and Sabine.

Matilda Poppy would be gorgeous but of the combos as is Matilda Mae would be my choice.
Love your DDs name

The others are too cutesy for me and wouldn't suit a grown woman.
I love Sophie Clare!

I've always loved Penelope so that gets my vote.
So are you Henry James fans?
Posted 14 January 2013 - 08:33 PM
I love the name Henry and James is a family name on DH's side. Having said that, I really enjoyed "The Portrait of a Lady" :-)

Poppy is ok. Not fussed on Matilda or Molly at all. I really don't like Olive or Mae as middle names.
Posted 14 January 2013 - 09:06 PM
I don't like Poppy as a name, as most kids I know have a grandfather they call 'poppy'.
I like Matilda the best fom your list or three other suggestions:
Sophie and Hannah
Sophie and Aleah
Sophie and Violet
Posted 14 January 2013 - 11:49 PM
Sophie Clare and we need a name for her little sister.
Molly Penelope - ok
Posted 15 January 2013 - 12:47 AM
From ur list I prefer Matilda Mae. I like olive and Penelope as first names.
Posted 15 January 2013 - 12:56 AM
I like Matilda Olive (Matilda Mae is a little too alliterative for me)
Or maybe Matilda Penelope?
Posted 15 January 2013 - 01:18 AM
I like Poppy and Molly from your options, particularly Poppy. Not keen on any of the others.
I like the idea of keeping the rhythm of Sophie Clare:
Mix and match MNs.
Posted 15 January 2013 - 01:24 AM
Sophie Claire and Matilda Mae
Posted 15 January 2013 - 06:36 AM
They are all nice but I love Poppy Mae
Me too, and I love your kids names and Henry James.
The only name of those suggested that I don't like (at all!) is Olive.
Posted 15 January 2013 - 04:22 PM
I also like them all except Olive, which I really dislike.
Poppy and Molly are my favourites for first names.
I love the suggestion of Maisie!
Posted 15 January 2013 - 04:31 PM
My niece is Matilda May, its pretty darn cute and so is she.
Posted 16 January 2013 - 04:11 PM
Penelope Mae nn Poppy?
