So DH and I are trying for bub #4 and we have already had a boys name picked since having DS but we are thinking of girls names.
We are thinking along the lines of
Scarlett (although this probably won't work with our surname)
Indigo (we love this but we know its always going to be shortened to Indi which we love but too close to our DD2 names)
So our fav 3 are the 3 with the starts next to them. Middle name will most likely be Elle
Would love to hear others thoughts
Please if you know me don't mention this post to others as we prefer to keep the names to oursleves outside of Essential Baby, Thanks

*Matilda - ok, prefer Miranda, Tessa
*Charli - sorry don't like for a girl, Charlotte, Charlene, Charlize are ok though
Imogen - love it
*Taylah - ok, prefer Tayla spelling Kayla is prettier
Scarlett - sorry don't like
Indigo - sorry don't like
what are your other childrens names

If you love Indigo, use it and don't worry what other people "might" shorten it to. Doesn't mean you have to.
My oldest daughter has a 3 syllable name that can be shortened (which makes it into a completely different, but still very nice name).
I have never called her by her shortened name, although most of her friends do. Funnily enough, when they are speaking to me about her, they call her by the full version. Our family and extended family also call her the full version, although sometimes when speaking directly to her, will use the shortened version.
Her name, as far as I'm concerned, is the name I gave her at birth and the name I call her every day. The other name is just what her friends call her and is just a nickname.

*Matilda - I LOVE this and I love the short version 'Tilly"
*Charli - dislike
Imogen - this is ok
*Taylah - dislike
Scarlett - ok
Indigo - I really like this.

Scarlett, Imogen, Indigo and Matilda are all good but it's hard for me to know whether they're too similar to your other kids names without knowing their names because for me if Indi is too close to anothers name, Indigo and Imogen could be too.

We probably haven't got the same taste in names. However I do like Scarlett and Imogen.
Of the two Scarlett works better with MN Elle.
I actually don't think any of the other names work with Elle.
Clear pick is Scarlett.

I only like Imogen from your list. Charli is okay as a NN to Charlotte or Carlotta but I'm not a fan of it in its own right.
I really dislike both Matilda and Taylah.

Charli- I'd prefer Charlie, as Charli seems unfinished to me.
Imogen- love it
Taylah- I prefer the original spelling of Taylor
Scarlett- I'm not a fan of this
Indigo- love it. She might get Indi from others, but you could use a different nn within your family.

some other names
Charli - sorry don't like for a girl, Charlotte, Charlene, Charlize
I'd probably stick with another 2 syllable name and not the same starting/ending letter as any of your other kids
Posted 12 February 2013 - 09:45 PM
Matilda - no, just no...
Charli - is this really a name suitable for an adult?
Imogen - Overdone
Taylah - awful, even more awful with this spelling
Scarlett - same as Charli
Indigo - this is a name?
Icing on the cake: Elle is a really difficult name to match up with other names (try saying Taylah Elle out loud or Imogen Elle - sounds like Imma Janelle)
...but what would I know? If you like the names use them and don't rely on the opinions of a bunch of opinionated know-alls like me.

Wow can't believe the reaction from these names.
I think they all match my other kiddies names quite well but hey maybe thats just our taste.
Elle is after me and is my NN
I won't even mention our boys name we have picked as I REALLY don't think anyone would like it.
We are not at all after trendy names or even spelling. These names are just how we have seen and think look nice.
Each to their own I guess
Did anyone see my other kiddies names before I deleted them just as reference to each other?
If anyone has any other name suggestions we are definately open to hear new ones
Posted 13 February 2013 - 09:46 AM
yes I saw the names before they were deleted, I have to go out now but will think of some others when I get back
Posted 13 February 2013 - 09:57 AM
I like Imogen and Scarlett. I like Indigo, but not a fan of Indie. I didn't see your other kids names sorry.
Freya or Freja

I'm struggling to think of names that go with Elle as a MN. Maybe your full first name would be easier as MN?
Names that incorporate Elle would work with your kids' names but then would be too close to yours in daily life. Like Giselle, Marcelle, Ella...
Anyway, names that I think go with your kids' names but not taking 'Elle' into account. All 2 syllables to go with the others:

some names containing Elle
Posted 13 February 2013 - 03:16 PM
i like imogen. charli is ok but is a derivative of my MIL's name, which is why i didnt go for charlotte for dd ( with charlie as a nn).all the best!
Posted 13 February 2013 - 08:42 PM

*Charli- hate this for a girl...
Imogen- love this, all the Imogens I know are gorgeous
*Taylah- not a fan of Taylah not sure why tho
Scarlett- this is pretty but not sure about it with the mn Elle
Indigo- this isn't my style but it's still cute... even if Indi is close to your DD2
