Hi,


I posted a few weeks back but my DH and I can still not make a decesion on DD2 name, due in a few weeks!

DD1 is called Emma, so we would like something that complements this, and is a classic, pretty name.  I also would like to avoid the top ten names.


Our list which we have so far is (Middle name will be Rose):


- Mya (love this name, but concerned it sounds too much like the store- Myers???)

- Madeleine (Like this name too, but not sure about overused nm Maddie??)

- Molly (Cute little girl's name, but ? good adult name)

- Eva (have laways loved this name, but think it could be too matchy-matchy with Emma??)

- Georgia (DH's favourite, not sure if I am keen on the nm Georgie though- do you think she would be called this?)


Haha as you can see I am very undecided- any input, advice would be much appreciated.  It is doing my head in!!

I love Emma and Georgia or Emma and Madeline.

What about Alice?

I think any of the names you have mentioned are fine and go nicely with Emma, the only ones I'm not loving are Mya and Molly.

All are very pretty, though Molly is not really suited to an older adult (just imagining "Prime Minister Molly XX" ummm, no)...don't understand why Georgia would be given the nn Georgie - just as many syllables?!

What about Kate?

Catherine Rose..... NN Kate.

I know twins... Kate & Emma

So they go together for me.

Georgia Rose is beautiful!!!!
Also really like Madeleine Rose
and both go well with Emma

I wouldnt worry too much about the NN's but if you can think of something different as a NN for either of those names start her on that young then most everyone will usually just use your NN's. Personally I think either of the nicknames for those names is nice anyways.

The other names are not as nice imo

- Mya  - I really like this name but I dont think it is as Classic as Emma

- Madeleine - I dont like this so much. Mostly because of the nn Maddie.

- Molly - LOVE this!

- Eva  - yes I think it is too matcy with Emma. Also it is pretty popular.

- Georgia  - yes I think a Georgia would be called Georgie

other suggestions:

Lydia
Matilda (nn Tilly)
Harriett

I like all the names on your list, I think my pick with Emma would be Madeleine Rose.

LOVE the suggestion of Alice.

Other suggestions-
Josephine nn Josie

Imogen
Violet

Mya  - prefer Maya or Maia
Molly - nice and goes with Emma
Madeleine - nice and goes with Emma. what about Leni or Lena for nn's?
Eva - too close to Emma
Georgia - love this, goes with Emma - I would do nn Gigi

I think any of Molly, Madeleine or Georgia would work fine, and there are other nn's as suggested which you could introduce early if you wanted to avoid Maddie or Georgie.

Georgia would be my pick.

#10 Gudrun

With Emma my pick from your list is Eva.  Lovely!

Second pick Molly.

So they go together for me.


This is what I came to suggest (except I don't know twins).  Emma and Kate go really well together.
Also like Claire and Louise with Emma.

Thank you for all your suggestions! I actually love the name Alice too- but DH is unfortunately not a fan sad.gif !


I also like the suggestion for Gigi as a nm for Georgia!


I think my top three are Madeleine, Georgia, and Molly. Will have to talk over with DH and hopefully come to a decision- might need to see this little one before making the final decision!


Please keep any other opinions/suggestions coming!

Mya- this would be fine spelt Maia but I think it's a bit of a mouthful to say with Emma

Madeleine- gorgeous

Molly- ok

Eva- gorgeous, but not with Emma

Georgia- lovely, but I wouldn't use it if you don't like Georgie



I'd go with Madeleine.


Other suggestions:
Emma and Lara
Emma and Claire
Emma and Charlotte
Emma and Alexandra
Emma and Isabelle/Isabella
Emma and Olivia
Emma and Claudia
Emma and Jessica
Emma and Harriet
Emma and Natalia
Emma and Maisie
Emma and Holly

Emma and Louisa

I know an adult Georgia and a seven year old - I've never, ever heard either of them referred to as Georgie. The only Georgies I've met are really Georginas.
I think Georgia is a great name - a classic.



#16 ~THE~MAGICIAN~

Posted 07 February 2013 - 06:37 PM

I love classical names.

I like Eva from your list, but wouldn't use it with Emma.

Some I love are:

Emma and Felicity
Emma and Charlotte
Emma and Bridget
Emma and Kate
Emma and Juliet
Emma and Ruby

Some other favourites I love but wouldn't use with Emma are:

Annabel
Zara
Laura
Ella
Hannah

#18 pinkelephant

Posted 07 February 2013 - 07:34 PM

If I had 2 girls they would be Emma and Heidi.

#19 Hannah Henrietta

Posted 07 February 2013 - 07:34 PM

As per PP - Catherine Rose..... NN Kate - came to my mind.

From your list I most like Georgia.

I think any name from a Jane Austen novel would go beautifully with Emma - which is absolutely gorgeous btw.

All the best.

Posted 07 February 2013 - 07:58 PM

I vote for Molly or Georgia - I have known several Georgia's , sometimes shortened to George, but havent heard any called Georgie.


I like Eva too but I think it is too similar to Emma.



Fiona ia a bit out of left field, you dont hear that name for babies much any more - although I do know of one who is about 2 years old.

I prefer Molly or Georgia but yes Fiona Rose works well and Fiona is fine with Emma.

#23 Peppery

Posted 07 February 2013 - 08:07 PM

Another who knows siblings - Emma and Kate

I have quite a few Molly's in my family tree. All given the first name Mary but all known as Molly wacko.gif . I don't think of it as a little girls name

From your list, I would select Madeleine
