    I have name fatigue!

    I'm all named out! I'm expecting baby #4 in August and I'm finding it really tough to decide on her name, I've read lists and lists of names, and am left feeling a bit 'meh' over nearly all of them. I've lost my excitement for it really, because finding the perfect name seems impossible!

    There is one name that I love - Primrose. But H doesn't like it. He likes Amelia or Jemima, neither particularly grab me.

    I like old-fashioned, slightly off the radar names. Nothing modern, or made up, no creative spellings, no 'lyn' endings or nicknames.

    We live in London, and I've been scouring the Telegraph birth announcements as many seem to be the closest to my style.

    How do I get my naming mojo back?

    And, of course, any suggestions?

    Siblings are Madeleine Rose, Gabriel James and Nathaniel Ray, her middle name will probably be Sadie.

    Names I like, but don't love are Florence, Matilda, Persephone, Mallory & Aurelia.

    Your children have lovely names so I think this will turn out okay-- maybe just take a break for a bit and see what names come to you when you aren't trying so hard to find "the one." With your sibset, I would definitely look at 3-4 syllable fns. There are some great suggestions above too that work really well for your sibset.

    Similar to Amelia and Jemima and some of the other names you like:

    Jessamine
    Anastasia
    Araminta
    Athena
    Alexandria
    Aspasia
    Caroline/Carolina
    Cassandra
    Cordelia
    Cecilia
    Clementine
    Millicent
    Minerva
    Evangeline
    Josephine
    Octavia
    Theodora
    Theodosia
    Dorothea
    Eugenia
    Georgina/Georgiana
    Phyllida
    Ottilie
    Lavinia
    Leticia
    Helena

    Some other possibilities:

    Genevieve
    Honora
    Juliana
    Juliet
    Louisa
    Lucinda
    Lucretia
    Sybilla
    Viveca
