We have bub #2 due next month. We have 2 boys names and I'm happy with both of those but I'm having trouble finding/agreeing on a girls name we both really like. It's such a big decision.
Short list at the moment is:
Matilda (nn Tilly)
DD1 is Sienna so something that flows with that. I love Layla but it got a definate no from hubby.
Thanks for any opinions/suggestions.

I like Matilda, love Heidi, but don't think it really goes with Sienna.
How do you pronounce Mieke - is it like Meeka?
Unless you have northern European ancestry it seems a bit over the top as people will struggle with the pronunciation.
What about another Italian name like Lenora, Melita, Renata or Bianca (although that might be too matchy!).

We would pronounce Mieke "Meeka". We have northern European ancestry (including our surname).Surname does have a few pronounciations so it might get on my wick having to correct both first and surname all the time.

Heidi - love it, not sure it goes with Sienna though
Mieke - ok, ? with Sienna

Marieke then. Pronounced with 3 syllables to go with Sienna.
