Thanks to everyone for the feedback. Actually, Margot is traditionally a nickname for Marguerite, and I had suggested that as an option first. My husband (who is English) prefers Margaret, though.

My husband and I recently discovered that we're expecting twin girls. While we've made a firm decision for one of them (Charlotte Victoria), we are having trouble agreeing on a name for the other....

My parents were very traditional when it came to naming their children.
Robert Emmett (after my father)
I also prefer traditional names, but ones...
Sorry, I should have mentioned that our daughter's name is pronounced "HELL-ehn-a", not "Hell-een-a", so would not rhyme with Marina.
Poll: Final Three!
My husband and I are trying to decide which of these three names to pick for our next daughter. I'd really appreciate any feedback. :)

I distinctly remember naming my dolls Heidi, Greta, Genevieve, and Coco when I was around 5 years old. I actually still like Greta (as a nn for Margaret) and Genevieve now.
I agree with stripedsocks. I was born and raised in New York and there is a distinct difference in pronunciation between Erin (Eh-rin) and Aaron (A-rin) there, as in other parts of the Northeastern...
Thanks, Mischa! Marina has always been one of my favourites. My only concern is that, while we pronounce Helena's name "HELL-ehn-a", some people assume that it's pronounced "Hel-EEN-a", and I fear...
Any thoughts on the name Marina Charlotte?

I love Georgiana and Josephine, but prefer Kate as a nickname.

I agree. I'm also one of four. While I loved the chaos growing up, I think it would be very difficult to raise four children today, especially in NYC and Paris (my hometown and where my husband and I...
Congratulations! What a lovely name!
