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:

Poppy Olive
Molly Penelope
Matilda Mae

Which one sounds best? And any other ideas?

They are all nice but I love Poppy Mae original.gif

#3 eachschoolholidays

Posted 14 January 2013 - 07:49 PM

I like all of them, but Molly is my favourite

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.
Otherwise...Sophie and
Edwina
Philippa
Gemma
Annabel

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 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.  wub.gif

I love Olive.

The others are too cutesy for me and wouldn't suit a grown woman.

I love Sophie Clare!

What about:

Sophie and Bridget
Sophie and Hannah
Sophie and Ella
Sophie and Zara
Sophie and Laura
Sophie and Annabel
Sophie and Kate
Sophie and Juliet
Sophie and Lillian

I've always loved Penelope so that gets my vote.

So are you Henry James fans?

#13 Just green apples

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.

#16 Harmonica

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

#17 kerilyntaryn

Posted 14 January 2013 - 11:49 PM

Sophie Clare and we need a name for her little sister.


Poppy Olive

Amy
Emily
Phoebe
Penelope


#18 José

From ur list I prefer Matilda Mae. I like olive and Penelope as first names.

#19 Magnus

Posted 15 January 2013 - 12:56 AM

I like Matilda Olive (Matilda Mae is a little too alliterative for me)

Or maybe Matilda Penelope?

#20 Gudrun

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:

Bridie Jean
Lottie Joy
Poppy Ruth
Romy Dawn
Molly Sian
Tilly/Tillie Maeve
Maisie Ruth


Mix and match MNs.

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.



#23 Plaxy

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!
