Classic Girl Names
We're pregnant with baby #2 and we're stuck on what to name her. Her big brothers name is Samuel Elliot. We were going to go with Paisley Elizabeth or Paisley June but got feedback saying we should go with something more classic like Samuel for her. The problem is we can't come up with anything we like. I like Catherine Grace nn Catie/Katie but I don't love it and it doesn't seem like "the one". Sam's name was easy...this one isn't. Please help with suggestions for classic girl names.
I love the name Paisley Elizabeth. Paisley June is cute too PJ for short. - If you like then go for it just because Samuel is a classic name doesn't mean the others have to match, a friend has 2 boys with unisex names and her latest edition has a very 80's or 90's name but it's not that uncommon nowadays. If you like it so much why not have it as a middle name.
I know a Presley Willow Olive Dorothy.
Paisley Evelyn - would be lovely.
I love the suggestion of Isabel. It's more similar in style to Paisley while still being a classic. It also goes well with Samuel. I also really, really like Grace with Samuel!
Some other suggestions, a few are repeats:
I like a well coordinated sibset as much as anybody, but I don't think you should necessarily ditch Paisley if it's the name you like the most. As an adult, most people don't even know the names of my sisters. I'd only pick another name if it's definitely something you want to do. But here are some additional ideas for you:
So I looked over this list http://nameberry.com/blog/classic-gi...truly-timeless and pulled out some that seemed to have some of the spunk of Paisley June but with a bit more history of use.
Phoebe and Philippa aren't on the list but I think they are great suggestions.
So far I like the suggestions Eleanor, Eloise, Josephine, Julia, and Felicity. I'm still hooked on Paisley though...but I like Mackenzie and I love the way it flows with Samuel. I'm not sure it's "classic" though. What do you guys think?
If you love Paisley, you shouldn't discount it based on other people's opinions. As others have said on these forums many times, your kids are individuals and as they grow up no one will really care whether their names "match."
@lo thanks so much for that link!! It's very helpful with different names that are classic in different ways. The name Lydia jumped out at me and I never would have thought of it has a classic name.
