1. I dont have strong, must-be-Australian connotations w/ either really. I do think Waltzing Matilda, but I also think Roald Dahl's Matilda.
2. Amelia Primrose by a mile.
3. I think Adelaide, Matilda, and Amelia would be just fine as sisters. Primrose does stick out a little more for me because she doesnt have the A- or the -A...but if those are the names you love, I wouldnt see it as a deal breaker.
June 5th, 2012 02:38 AM #131. My top two names are now Adelaide Juliet (Addie) and Matilda Eve (Tilly). My concern is that both relate to Australia (the former being the capital of a state and the latter featuring in a very famous song "Waltzing Matilda") and I have no connections to Australia that would make that make sense. Is it a very conspicuous association to the country, or would it take someone a little more erudite to notice? Would it be a big deal to have Adelaide and Matilda as sisters even with no ties to Australia? It would take someone a little more erudite [than me, evidently] to notice. Adelaide and Matilda would make a highly compatible clunky-cool vintage sibset. Similarly, Amelia would be best with a sibling named Charlotte; and Primrose with Lavinia or the like.
2. This is a tad more simple, just pick your favorite: Primrose Amelia (Prim/Posy) or Amelia Primrose (Mimi)? If you'd like to suggest other combinations for either as a first name, please do! Primrose Amelia has a spring in her step flow-wise, whereas Amelia Primrose is noticeably dragging.
3. Let's say we have Adelaide, Matilda, and Amelia as sisters. Are the names too similar or just similar enough for a good sib set? Let's say we have Adelaide, Matilda, and Primrose. Does Primrose seem like the odd one out or does she fit in alright?

One: I'm from Australia, and surprisingly don't feel a strong connection between the name Adelaide and the city Adelaide. It certainly hasn't stopped me from putting Adelaide in my top ten! I used to associate Matilda with Australia quite strongly, but now seeing as it's becoming more popular around the world, I think the connection is weakening.
I think Adelaide and Matilda would make a gorgeous sibset! Maybe to others, it would be a bit too much, but I certainly don't think so.
Two: Oh, this is a bit hard to choose...I don't like Amelia, so I'm leaning towards Primrose Amelia, but I think Amelia Primrose flows better...unfortunately I can't think of any suggestions at the moment however.
Three: I adore Adelaide and Matilda as siblings, but I don't like Amelia with them, and not just because I don't like Amelia. There's just something about it. Adelaide, Matilda and Primrose is nice, but Primrose does seem out of place.
Good luck!Renaming myself;
