HELP! Philomena, Margeurite, others?
I am having such a hard time choosing a name for this baby girl. Her sister's name is Elodie Wren, and I cannot find anything I like as much.
The names I do like, always seem to end in 'A' and our last name is 'Agresta' so they dont flow (I love Cressida and Freya for example).
I want like most people, different but not too different - & easy to pronounce.
Two names we have been considering are Philomena and Margeurite.
This site is my favorite name site, and people always seem to have such great suggestions.

I vote for Marguerite too. Elodie & Marguerite are lovely together. Does little Elodie usually go by a nn? Do you have any middle names in mind? Do you want another French name? Marguerite fits the bill if you want to keep a French theme.
pp's list include quite a few French names or how about:
Carolyn or Caroline
Emmeline (or do you want to stay away from E names this time?)
I hope this helps!Mommy to John Alexander & 3 furbabies; Maggie the dog, Rex & Bella the wannabe lions

Thanks, I love some of the choices - Noemi for example - love it. Also, Tamsin and Giselle. Wynne would make a great middle name. Elodie, unexpectedly became "Deedee" as a baby, because my son is 3 and everyone's name becomes two syllable ie Grandma = Gigi, Colton - Coco. Now that she is two however, its starting to fade away (thankfully as I a not a fan of it for an older girl!). If you ask her what her name is now, she emphatically says 'El-da-dee'. So, as she gets bigger and goes to school I think she will just be 'Elodie'. People dont seem to want to attach a nickname to it.
