    Need help with deciding on a girl name.

    I am expecting a daughter and need help with deciding on names. I love the name Indie Elizabeth or maybe Indie Josephine but I also like the name Seraphina Hope or another middle name. Do you have any suggestions for names in the same style as these or any thoughts on the names?

    I really like Indie Elizabeth! Seraphina Hope is pretty too but you could also go with Seraphina Wren, Seraphina Grace, or even Seraphina Indie would be beautiful!
    Girls: Blair, Lucia, Aria, Luna
    Boys: Xander, Rafael, Cato, Isaiah

    Welcome to Nameberry, and congratulations on your daughter! I prefer Seraphina over Indie. Indie is a fun sound, but it is too much of a word for me--short for "independent," as in the genre of films and art. I feel like Seraphina would sound best with a middle name that had an "ee" sound in it:

    Seraphina Celine
    Seraphina Bree
    Seraphina Elise
    Seraphina Marie

    You seem to like first names that are playful and dainty. More suggestions:

    Cecilia
    Celine
    Celeste
    Sapphira
    Eppie
    Essie
    Lelah
    Andi
    Leandra
    Roxy

    Good luck!

    Hmm...
    Seraphina isn't my style, I can see the attraction but I'm generally not keen on the name. So I personally wouldn't use Seraphina. I think Indie Elizabeth is cute, but I almost feel Indie (despite being from the UK where nicknames like Evie and Ellie are hot right now) is too much of a nickname. I find Indie unlike nickname choices like Hattie and Maisie the name feels too young and informal. Have you thought of India? India Elizabeth is just as hip and pretty however she has a lot more character and feels far more formal, India would work better for an adult and has the cute nickname of Indie for a child.

    Suggestions:
    Dahlia
    Alexandra
    Orlaith
    Leona
    Maeve
    Theodora
    Elena
    Augusta

    Hope this helped x

    Congratulations and welcome!

    I would suggest making Indie short for something, like Indigo or Indiana or India. I'm a big fan of giving your child some versatility, rather than using a nickname name as a given name. That way as she grows she has options.

    I like Seraphina a lot, but I'm not feeling Seraphina Hope.

    Suggestions:

    India Elizabeth
    India Josephine
    Indigo Elizabeth
    Seraphina Jane
    Seraphina Lily
    Seraphina Ruby

    Other first name suggestions:

    Clementine
    Violet
    Ruby
    Liliana
    Romy
    Ivy
    Olive
    Paloma
    Annabel
    Mrs. H.
    Trying for our first!
    If it's a boy: Josiah Walker "Joe"
    If it's a girl: Clementine Marvel
