    Question British names?

    Hey there, I'm meg. My husband and I are moving to England in a few weeks, and our daughter will be born there. We're looking for a lovely British name for her. We've found these, but would love some more suggestions:
    Violet
    Charlotte
    Lillie
    Claire
    Sophia
    Clara
    Ava

    And I personally really like the double middle name idea as well, I've noticed that is quite popular in Britain.
    Thanks,
    Meg

    Double middle names aren't really popular here.

    Thanks so much. We were thinking of Lillie Isabelle Francesca and Amelia Beatrix. I also love the name Hazel, as in Hazel Florence or Hazel Cordelia Rose.
