    Narrow down my long girls list!

    We are expecting, and I want a name that complements my other daughters' names, but isn't too "matchy." We are not French, but by chance I picked French names the first two times.

    First daughter is Monet Elisabeth and second is Mirabelle Sylvie. Another decision I'm trying to make is whether the new baby needs to have an M name. I don't want to be like those people who name all their kids Kyle, Kody, Karson, Kylie, etc, but I also don't want the new baby to feel like the odd man out if she's the only one without an M name. Thoughts?

    I like Vivenne, Tatiana, Josephine, Giselle, Natasha, and Molly.

    I don't think your child with feel left out because you didn't use M. In fact, it should make her feel more like an individual, which every child SHOULD be.

    2 in a row with M's and then the 3rd without might be a bit odd. I can see her feeling left out depending on her personality. It depends on how much it bothers you. I like these 2 the best if you decide to go with an M.
    Magritte - this one definitely fits like a glove with your other two, if you go with an M I think it would be hard to find a better fit.
    Marlow - I prefer the spelling without the e, I think this would be a nice way to keep the set from feeling too faux French

    If you decide not to go with an M, I like these the best:
    Dahlia - I think this could work nicely with your set
    Lisette - I think this is a nice option
    Adeline/Aveline - I personally prefer Aveline, but both are pretty
    Beatrice - gaining popularity but I still think it's a nice option
    Delphine - could work
    Helena/Helene - lovely name
    Isadora - pretty, could work

    Liliana - popular and a bit simple, but maybe
    Magnolia - might be a bit too country for your set, but it could maybe work
    Violet - getting very popular
    Flora - may be too simple and not fresh enough
    Zara - maybe
    Seraphina - hmm, maybe


    Cut:
    Matisse - since you already have a painter name, I'd cut this.
    Mireille - too close to Mirabelle, cut it
    Cosette - definitely wouldn't use this, sort of akin to "Baby"


    These just don't have the freshness of your other 2
    Louisa
    Odile
    Natasha
    Valentina
    Josephine
    Isolde
    Luciana
    Alessandra
    Vivienne
    Giselle


    A bit too simple next to Monet and Mirabelle
    Lily
    Elsa
    Mila - could also be a nn for Mirabelle, so I'd cut it
    Ilsa
    Esme


    Far more country-fied than your other two, they'd feel like the odd man out to me
    Talullah
    Wilhelmina
    Raphaela
    Tatiana
    Paloma
    Sasha
    Graciella


    Very nicknamey compared to your other names:
    Rory
    Sadie
    Millie
    Maisie
    Neve
    Molly
    Estee
    Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
    Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin

    If you think you'll have more children, break the "M" pattern. If you can't find an "M" name you love, there's nothing wrong with other letters of the alphabet. I think these names go well with Monet and Mirabelle. My faves are in bold.

    Alessandra - The French Alexandrine is pretty too!
    Cosette - there is also Colette?
    Dahlia - Other exotic flower names are Azalea and Zinnia.
    Isadora - have you considered Isabeau as an option?
    Isolde
    Lisette
    Luciana
    Magnolia
    Natasha
    Odile - Odette is another choice.
    Paloma
    Seraphina - I prefer the French Seraphine. There is also Serafina.
    Talullah
    Tatiana
    Valentina
    Violet - there is also the French spelling Violette.
    Vivienne
