Hi, my DH & I are having lots of trouble deciding on a name for our DD who is due in March. We generally like more traditional names but don't want anything that has become really popular - and it has to flow with a very unusual surname that sounds Latin/Greek. We have a DS named Karl - for those who are skilled at making sure we avoid a 'Sam and Ella' situation.
So far we have:
Sophie (probably more as a middle name since it is so popular now)
I need more! I haven't been sleeping well and don't want to trust my sleep deprived state. Only a few days ago I actually said "Jelly is a nice name... if it didn't mean jelly..." while staring into space.
Please help, so my daughter doesn't end up being named after a dessert.

I really like the names you have on your list.
My fave girl names are:

Charlotte Sophie sounds nice
Posted 26 January 2013 - 09:30 PM
Some nice names there.
Charlotte and Karl are variants of same name, so I'd take that one off the list. (Charlotte also is probably too popular for you, as is Sophie).
I love Alexandra : Alexandra Charlotte or Alexandra Sophie are good.
Claudia is ok but maybe a bit clunky with Karl?

DD's name is Claudia so of course I love that! Claudia Sophie flows really well.
Charlotte is probably matching Sophie in popularity - it's been top ten for years - but it's also lovely. In saying that though, I don't think Karl and charlotte make a nice sibset given that they have basically the same few sounds at the start of the names.
I also love Alexandra - you can't go wrong with any of the names.

I have a DD named Lucia, and i think Lucia Sophia sounds beautiful....

From your list I like Charlotte - however it has become quite popular!
Top three other names that I sprang to mind for me were:
Karl and Hannah
Karl and Alyssa
Karl and Lauren

I love all the names on your list and that doesn't happen very often.
Other favourites are:
Posted 26 January 2013 - 10:29 PM
Alexandra - ok
Sophie - love it, I don't know of any Sophie/Sophia's
Claudia - is ok, but I don't like the meaning what about Clara
Charlotte - nice but very popular

I would pick Claudia from your list. I second the suggestions of Adele, Monika, Celia, Helena, Josephine, Thea and Lydia. And adding:

I think Claudia is the best fit - I agree with PP that Claudia Sophie makes a good combo.
Posted 27 January 2013 - 11:16 AM
You've got a beautiful list. Sophie is obviously my favourite but if you're worried about popular names I would avoid Charlotte as a first name just as much, if not more so.
I think Alexandra would be the best choice with Karl.
A few suggestions...
Karl and Emma
Karl and Freya
Karl and Eloise
Karl and Genevieve
Karl and Alice
Karl and Eve/Eva
Karl and Erica
Karl and Fiona
Karl and Elise
Karl and Lillian
Karl and Stephanie
Karl and Amy
Karl and Jemima
Karl and Miranda
Karl and Lydia
Karl and Georgia

Thanks so much for all the replies, DH has now nixed Charlotte because he doesn't like spiders (you can see why this process is driving me bonkers) but at least now I have some new ideas to think about.
