Well Pip and Vivi are twins, so their names are said together more often than one might like! I do think the similarity might not be as big of a deal as I'm worrying it will be since we always call...
I voted for Primrose because I'm not a fan of repeating first initials in a sibset (Sylvie/Spencer). However, I think both Sylvie Rose and Sylvie Eloise flow better as names, so it's a close call for...

I'm unfortunately not as keen on Claudine or Claudette as they feel just a little too frilly for me! I see what you're saying though. So hard to find just the right fit!

Should have mentioned that DD1's name is Vivienne, so the sibset would be Philippa, Vivienne and Claudia. Potential nickname maybe something like Laudie to go with Pippa and Vivi?

Our front runners for dd3 have been Felicity and Georgina, but today Claudia (which I've always loved) came back into the mix. What do you think? Better or worse than the other two names? Felicity is...
Thanks for the thoughts so far! Not super keen on Georgiana, even though it's a beautiful name, just because it feels a little too frilly to me.
Liking the Fey nickname idea!
Yes, my dilemma exactly. I think I actually prefer the name Felicity on its own, but I keep having that niggle about the similarity!
I prefer Sarah; the meaning is lovely and to me it sounds less harsh than Rachel.
Poll: Felicity or Georgina?
Sorry to keep hammering on this, just think we've narrowed it down to these two names and could use help deciding! Other two DDs are Philippa Winter and Vivienne Gray (Pippa/Pip and Vivi). Middle...

We have similar guidelines and have a Philippa and a Vivienne. Names that have been on our list include:
Of all your names I think my favourite is Zara. What about:
Zara Winter (not on your list, but thought Winter might fit your style? We considered this...

I think if we went with Felicity it would end up being Flick or Lissie/Liss.

That's one of the front runners!
I agree that the first names don't seem to really work with the middles. I LOVE your middles, though. And would swap those around for firsts if possible. Georgiana and Lavinia are much more...

Other two dds are Philippa Winter and Vivienne Gray (Pippa and Vivi), so would like something quite strong but with a good nickname. Susan would be in honour of my mother (Gray is in honour of DH's...

Dd3 is a girl, and we're in the process of shortlisting names. We love the nn Rosie but I'm keen to have a longer full name as our other dd's (Philippa and Vivienne) have longer names as well. Not in...
Have had a great uncle Laurence just pass away, and I've taken a fancy to his name for our coming baby... feels a bit more fresh than some of the other classic boys' names floating around. Could we...
Poll: Opinions for baby #3?
Don't find out the gender for another few weeks, so I am probably wading into this naming business again too early, but I can't help it. Older siblings are Philippa Winter and Vivienne Gray...
What do you think of this name? I'm newly pregnant with our third, so am firing up the name lists again. I think I prefer this to Gwyneth (not keen on the Paltrow association), but we would probably...
Found this list and thought there were some really interesting possibilities!
Are there any names here you would use?
April 6th, 2014, 06:27 PM
WOW, this is our exact list, except we'd swap Edmund in for Laurence.

Elsa is adorable, but I imagine that once the Frozen generation comes of age, it'll be wildly popular (ala Isabella).
What about going for the Ailsa instead? Sounds very similar, if not the same...
As someone who actually has a Vivienne (slightly preferred Vivian but -an is still quite masculine here--men actually wear it) and struggled with spelling regret (is that a thing?), I'd go with the...
Ooh, Audie could be cute... or Laudie?
Hmm, Clio is cute... Trying to decide whether or not I like it!
