Hi name gurus,

We are due to have our DD2 in 5 weeks and finding a name this time round is proving to be so much harder.

Our DD1 is Asha Willow.

Our top 4 at the moment consists of:

Ruby
Ella
Ellie
Madison

Other names we agree on are:

Taylor
Lucy
Zoe
Samara
Perry (prob wont use as its a bit out there)

Names that I love that DH has vetoed are:

Milla
Matilda
Scarlett

Im just finding it hard as I love DD1's name. The names we have on our list are nice but I dont love them (yet).  And they are quite common (although at this stage i really dont care about them being common or not as I just want a nice name)

So can you offer any other ideas or opinions on our list?

Our top 4 at the moment consists of:
Ruby- lovely
Ella- lovely
Ellie- this is fine as a nickname only
Madison- really, really dislike

Other names we agree on are:
Taylor- ok
Lucy- nice, but I definitely prefer it as a nickname only to Lucia, Lucille, Lucinda eta
Zoe- lovely
Samara- lovely
Perry- not keen on this

Names that I love that DH has vetoed are:
Milla- lovely
Matilda- lovely
Scarlett- lovely

Of you top names/names you agree on I would probably go with Samara if you want something a little different but otherwise Zoe.

Some suggestions:
Asha and Summer
Asha and Madeleine
Asha and Serena
Asha and Holly
Asha and Estelle/Estella
Asha and Stella
Asha and Eloise
Asha and Celeste
Asha and Mila
Asha and Leila
Asha and Jemima
Asha and Lara
Asha and Zara
Asha and Clara
Asha and Xanthe/Xanthia
Asha and Tess/Tessa
Asha and Elise
Asha and Imogen
Asha and Ivy
Asha and Eve/Eva
Asha and Elke
Asha and Maisie
Asha and Maeve

Ruby (really popular, but I think it's a great name)
Ella (I'm not a fan of it personally, but I don't think it's a bad name)
Ellie ( I think this name is sweet)
Madison (not my style. I think Madison might have peaked a few years ago and be in decline now?)

Other names we agree on are:

Taylor (I don't mind it)
Lucy (I really like Lucy)
Zoe (Not my style, but goes well with Asha)
Samara (Beautiful name)
Perry (not my style- but I don't find it too out there at all)

It's great that you have so many names you can both agree on!

I love Asha and Samara. Personally, I really don't think Ellie, Ella, Ruby or Madison are unique enough to pair with Asha, which is much more uncommon. I love the name Asha and I love the name Samara. Do that original.gif

Samara all the way original.gif

Lucy and Samara are the best picks. I am not fond of any of the others.

Posted 19 January 2013 - 08:13 PM

Samara and Perry get my vote. Love Asha, and it is not overused. Ruby and Ella are two of the most common names around, as beautiful as they are, I'd go for something unique like you did the first time around.

#10 Little.One

Posted 19 January 2013 - 08:40 PM

Ellie
Ruby
Scarlett

Love them all! original.gif

#11 Ianthe

Posted 19 January 2013 - 08:47 PM

I would steer clear of your top 4 simply because Asha is unusual and those names are everywhere. I love Samara. What about Sabine/Sabina?

#12 middle

Posted 19 January 2013 - 09:19 PM

samara would be my fav but its my 3rd daughters name so i would naturally chose it

#13 nicknick

Posted 19 January 2013 - 09:50 PM

Given you have Ella & Ellie on your list I thought about my DD's name - Elin. We pronounce it E-Lin and love it. Just a thought  original.gif

#14 ~THE~MAGICIAN~

Posted 19 January 2013 - 09:52 PM

I love Ruby & Ella from your list, but seeing as you already have an Asha, I wouldn't use Ella.

So Asha and Ruby.

I think the nicest names there are Perry and Zoe.

A name which combines a few elements from other names you like, which you may wish to consider, is Millie.


#16 Raley

Posted 19 January 2013 - 09:58 PM

wow, thanks for all the replies.

Samara seems to be a popular choice! and its the only name that i consider slightly different that DH has considered.

I love Callie but DH gave that one a big NO.  Sabine/Sabina is nice but I doubt DH will clear that (i will check though).  He is the fussiest guy in the world.

I will sit DH down and run through all the suggestions.

Thanks!

Our top 4 at the moment consists of:

Ruby- love even though it's popular, but not sure it goes with Asha
Ella- asha and ella doesn't sound right
Ellie- like a lot
Madison- nope

Other names we agree on are:

Taylor
Lucy- love even though it's popular, but not sure it goes with Asha
Zoe- love even though it's popular, but not sure it goes with Asha
Samara- wub.gif Samara was on my list if DS2 had have been a girl. asha and samara doesn't sound right though
Perry (prob wont use as its a bit out there) like for a boy!

Names that I love that DH has vetoed are:

Milla- asha and milla doesn't sound right
Matilda- doesn't go with asha
Scarlett- doesn'tgo with asha


Both Asha and Mari mean wish or much wished for child

1. Zoe
2. Lucy

all the others - nt doing anything for me.

#21 ~Peaches~

Posted 20 January 2013 - 12:50 PM

Ruby or Samara would be my picks original.gif

#22 Raley

Posted 20 January 2013 - 03:37 PM

well i ran all the suggestions past DH and he said No to each and every one of them.  No surprises there.

Im thinking my top 4 is now:

Ruby, Lucy, Zoe and Samara

now I just need to start negotiating with DH.

Thanks again

#23 kerilyntaryn

Posted 20 January 2013 - 08:43 PM

Evie or Zoe - have the same meaning as Asha

#24 la di dah

Posted 20 January 2013 - 09:39 PM

I like Zoe. Zoe and Asha would be gorgeous together. Admittedly I like a lot of names like Zoe, including Zara,  Xanthe, Phoebe, Ione, and Zelda.

I like Sam- but prefer Samuela or Samantha to Samara.

I prefer just Rue or Ruth to Ruby but I think most people prefer Ruby and its a pretty enough choice. I think other gemstone names are more striking and uncommon though if there are any you like. I have Opal and Emerald on my own list, and have known Sapphires.

I have an Asha. Her middle name is Mackenzie and am wishing I didn't use it as I would it for this baby if its a DD.
I love Milla, Perri, Elise, Lainie and Xanthe and think they go go well with Asha.
Ruby is getting too popular for my list but does go nicely as well...
Lucy is my DDs best friend so goes great in my head as I yell it all the time!!!

Good luck, will be keen to know what you go with
