Please don't quote me, as my son is probably the only boy in this country to have his name spelled this way.

OK, here are the siblings... Jaksen (Jak), Pippa (Pip) and ...

Boy would be Magnus Pete (Gus), but the girl's name has me stuck:

Clementine (Mem)
Araminta (Minnie)

Middle name options:

Please help me choose a girls name!

BTW, no news... yet.

I like the names in the order that you have listed them.  However Clementine and Sadie are very close for me.  Think they are great names.

Magnus Pete is great.

From your girl's list I love:

Clementine Stella (Mem)

and like:

Araminta Stella (Minnie)

Not keen on the others.

Daphne & Clementine are pretty great!

With the siblings, from your list I think Sadie.

Everything you are considering shows taste OPM original.gif

Not sure if you meant Maude for a MN or FN but I'm a fan too.

My vote goes to Clementine Maude.   NN sibset Jak, Pip and Mem is as good as Jak, Pip and Gus.

Runner-up Sadie Maude.

I'd love to use Maude as a middle name moreso than Stella but it's 1 of my aunty's names and I think my other aunties might feel a bit left out?

Maude! Or Araminta!

Daphne is the best of an NMS lot.

Absolutely love Clementine and Araminta! biggrin.gif

Clementine Stella (Mem)
Sadie Stella
Daphne Stella
Araminta Stella (Minnie)

I like them in the order you have listed them. Clementine and Sadie I love, Daphne & Araminta I like. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the choices.

If Stella was an option for the first name that would shoot to the top of the list.

Not keen on Maude at all. Maeve yes, Maude no. Still in the musty old lady category for me I'm afraid.


Posted 27 February 2013 - 11:32 PM

Jaksen, Pippa and Clementine.

There is not one name I don't like! As a combo, Clementine Stella is probably the best. But I would love Daphne Clementine, Clementine Daphne, Araminta Sadie etc if Stella isn't set in stone.

I prefer Clementine but I think Daphne is a better fit with the sibset.

(Love Magnus BTW)

Sadie Stella my clear favourite.

Love Magnus Pete!

#18 fifi-trixibelle

Sadie Stella is both my favourite and the best fit.

#19 OneProudMum

Posted 28 February 2013 - 07:57 PM

What about Sadie Sue?

#20 lynneyours

Posted 28 February 2013 - 08:04 PM

Sadie Iris.

#21 antigone_

Posted 28 February 2013 - 08:09 PM

PLEASE choose Araminta (Minnie)! Love!

#22 -Samantha-

Posted 28 February 2013 - 08:58 PM

Sadie and Daphne are my favourites from your list! Out of your middle name options I would go with either Stella or Iris. Not a fan of Maude, to me it's still an old lady name.

#23 two+three

Posted 28 February 2013 - 09:20 PM

Clementine Stella

#24 wish*upon*a*star

Posted 28 February 2013 - 09:28 PM

Sadie Maude or Clementine Stella (but I think Sadie is a better sib set fit)

I think Stella Iris goes better as a sibset, but Jak, Pip and Mem go well as nn
