I've got a matter of weeks to go until we have DD#2. I'm really struggling with names this time around - DH and I can't seem to agree on anything!
Please can you rank my current shortlst - none are completely standing out for me at the moment and I'm worried I won't like them in the future. I'd also be keen for your own favourite which would go with mt DD's name ( Amelia /Millie)
Thanks in advance

Annabel - Love. It is another A name if that's a problem though.
Chloe - Love this, as long as the popularity doesn't bother you.
Sophie - Cute, I do think I like Sophia just that touch more but I'm like that.
Jasmine - I like Jessamine more though.
Amelia & Phoebe
Amelia & Violet
Amelia & Penelope (Milly & Penny)
Amelia & Catherine
Amelia & Elizabeth

Jasmine, Sophie and Chloe go best with Amelia I think. I like Sophie the best out of those three, but would go with Jasmine if you're looking for something less common.

I like Sienna, Sophie and Annabel the best, then Jasmine, Jemima and Chloe.

From your list I really like
Annabel (not sure if you're fussed about having two children with the same initial, but it doesn't worry me)
Sophie (but really love Sophia)
Jemima - I like this one, but the two girls I've known get Mimi. Millie and Mimi are a bit of a mouthful!

I like Sienna and Jasmine the best. Sophie is nice too.
Ciara / Kiara

I love these three names in this order:
If I had to pick one other name for you to consider I'd go for Amelia and Zoe.

Amelia is lovely, I think Sophie goes best with it. Both lovely and feminine.

I love Annabel, but I really don't think you could go past Jemima. It's not common and so refreshing to hear, classic too.
I definitely don't like, Jasmine, Chloe and Sienna.

I really like Annabel and Jemima a lot. Millie and Annie or Millie and Jem are both gorgeous sibsets.

Jasmine - Nice but I know a lot of them
Sienna - As above but more so
Annabel - Good
Sophie - Nice
Chloe - Not bad
Jemima - Love it!!! Cute, different but not odd. Nice as a baby name and as an adult name.
