Congratulations on your little girl!
I am with the others I am afraid, please don't call her Bunny. Particularly with Beatrix,
Bunny Beatrix just makes me think of Beatrix Potter and Peter...

Like the others, I think Gemma has a dated image here . I went to school and uni in Scotland with a number of Gemma's and would be surprised to meet a young Gemma now.
The first alternatives...

Hi! It has been a while since I was on here, but we are ttc again so back on the name hunt!
We already have a young daughter, Hazel. Any suggestions for sibling names to go with Hazel please? We...

Some lovely alternatives here, thank you!
Regarding Claire, I don't know why, but it just isn't a name I like. It is perfectly lovely, now underused and my husband loves it but it doesn't work for...

Anneliese or Annaliese are lovely actually, that is one we haven't looked at that may be a good possibility, thank you!
I also like Rose, if I can persuade him to go for Rosa :). Maeve and Grace...

Trysaratops, great minds think alike :). If I had my way, Clara would be our choice without any debates, but my husband hates it for some reason. I really don't get why!
Eliza is a good...

I am hoping you might have some suggestions that we have missed so far. We are expecting out first baby in Nov, the gender is a surprise. We are struggling to find girls' names that...

Thank you for the replies. It has reassured me that Alice may be usable :). The middle name is already decided, or Alice would have been a lovely option for that.

We are on the hunt for a name for our first baby due in November, we don't know what the sex is.
We both love the name Alice for a girl, but my husband's name is Alastair so they...

Harriet and Emily.
I hope to use Harriet at some point. Although I love Emily, it is one of my favourite names, it is not a name I would use as my Grandmother refused to have anything to do with...
No, I don't think they are too close. They have a similar style, but are a completely different sound in my head. Isla is just lovely! If you do feel it is too close, what about Iona?

Thanks everyone! The main thought seems to be that it is ok to go with Anna as a possibility. The middle name will be Caroline, whatever first name we go with as that is the other Granny. Given that...

I would say it depends how far you are away from family and friends, and how you settle into where ever you move to.
We live in a small seaside village in the Scottish Highlands. It's beautiful,...

That's what makes more sense to me. Yet I keep finding things like this - Also a variant of Evan, and hence, also a version of John.
But it doesn't sound like it can be to me! I am still hopeful!
June 12th, 2013, 03:23 PM
For a girl's name, we would like a variant of Anne (one of the baby's grandmothers). Our favourite option is Anna, but I am concerned it is simple too close to Anne for daily use....

We are on the hunt for a boy's name which is a variant of John. We want to use it in honour of my husband's grandfather, who was John, known as Jack but I don't want to use John or...

Amara Genevieve is absolutely gorgeous, I love the combination. It seems like a lovely way to honour both family members whilst giving your little one her own name.
I know what you mean about...

What do you think of Alina? How would you pronounce it? Any thoughts on alternative spellings which may appear?
Middle name would be Joanne.
I came across this at work the other day, a...

Luke always sounds like look to me when said in the local accent where I live. It drives me mad because Luke is one of my favourite boys names, but I just won't consider it for that reason.

My Mom is friends with a Lesley, married to a Leslie. Both him & her go by Les. I find it completely confusing!
I wouldn't consider a unisex name for that and many other reasons, for either a boy...

Both names are fabulous, but Susannah Frances leads for miles for me - it is such a classic combination and Pheobe and Imogen are getting rather popular (in the UK where I am anyway).

AlexP, yes, Dh's grandfather was John but known as Jack his entire life. I very much prefer the name John to Jack, Jack is just a name which doesn't work for me but DH is adamant he would rather it...

Thats a good point Misha, thanks. with Thomas, I imagine he will end up being called Tom, which raises the question of Tom M again... Our surname starts with Mc, so the M sound isn't very strong...

Thanks! I love, love, love Oliver, that is currently my favourite boys name - but it is so popular in the UK at the moment & we live in Scotland, so I am wary of using it. Oliver is the No1 name, and...
