My third daughter is due in four weeks and DH is not being very co-operative when it comes to discussing names. So I'm going to narrow it down to three and hopefully he will make a choice.

I prefer non top ten names, my other two daughters aren't even in the top 100. I don't want anything too pretentious, but nothing too westy either.  We tend to use nick names a lot.

Here's my list so far... would love to have some input seeing as DH isn't helping!

Piper (like this for a little one and teen, but not sure if it would be a bit harsh on a 50-year-old)
Sasha (Probably the front runner at this stage)
Emmeline
Remy
Mae
Emerson
Quinn
Mila
Geneva
Emery
Darcy
Violet
Cleo (Hubby doesn't like)
Other suggestions?

Thanks in advance...

You have quite a variety of styles there. If your daughters' names are of a similar style to each other I would be looking at choosing another similar in style to them.   Otherwise I suppose different from both but it all depends on the names and also the surname of course.


I would shortlist to:

Sasha
Emmeline
Mila


I quite like Quin/n even though it's not my personal style and I'd include Ginevra rather than Geneva.

I'm not keen on the remaining names.

Emmeline - pretty,  Adeline is nice too
Remy - prefer for a boy
Mae - good,  Maeve is nicer
Emerson - prefer for a boy

My daughter's names are very different styles. One is a very feminine name, one is more a boy's name. Both contain plenty of e's and l's, I'm not too concerned about having matching names, just probably don't want another Elle-type name.

Piper- ok, and there will probably be plenty of 50 year old Pipers around when she's 50 as it seems to get used a lot lately
Sasha- nice, but I'd love it as a Sascha
Emmeline- lovely
Remy- ok, but not too keen
Mae- ok
Emerson- really dislike
Quinn- lovely, for a boy only
Mila- nice
Geneva- nice
Emery- board?
Darcy- like Quinn, it's lovely, for a boy only
Violet- nice
Cleo- nice, but I prefer it as a nickname

Emmeline would be my pick.

Thanks for the input so far. Emmeline seems to be the top pick, however I do have a daughter who gets the nickname Ellie (which I don't particularly love, but none the less that's what everyone calls her), and figure Emmeline would get Emmy... is Ellie and Emmy too much?

#14 B.feral3

If I had to pick one from your list it would be Mae, but I would spell it May only.

The rest I dislike quite a bit.

What does not too 'westy' mean? I've never heard of westy. Is that like bogan?

For me it would depend if Ellie's full name also begins with E. If it does, then I wouldn't consider Emmeline as a first name at all because Ellie (Eleanor, Eleanora etc) and Emmeline is worse than Ellie and Emmy as nicknames only for me.

ETA I'm not sure if what I wrote makes sense, I've tried to reword it but it's probably no better lol. If Ellie doesn't have an E first name then I probably would still consider Emmeline.

I quite like Piper, and also Quinn. I think Quinn sounds more girly than boy.
Not a fan of the others in your list, but i do like that they aren't common names.
Congrats on a third little girl, and good luck with picking a name. I suspect im having a third boy, and im dreading picking a name. My partner didn't agree with anything last time, and it was a struggle......sigh

Ooo love your names! Violet or Quinn would be my top picks from your list (imagine having a gorgeous little quinnie-doll!!)
Alteady having an Ellie nickname & adding an emmeline into the mix would be a bit much for me personally.
I'm loving Sylvie at the moment... Sylvie Violet?
