    having a bit of a panic

    Hi All,
    We will hopefully find out the gender of our second baby in about 2.5 weeks. I promised myself that i wouldn't freak out about names until we knew what we're having, but i can't help it- i'm freaking out because we have no girls names that feel right.

    What we do know is this:
    1. The middle name is definitely going tobe Susannah.
    2. We want the name to sound right with big sister Juniper, but we don't want anything themed, so no botanical, nature, word or food names ( Juniper is mainly thought of as a spice in the Uk). This rules out a lot of lovely names, but its just what we feel comfortable with.
    3. Our last name starts with Or, so lovely names with a prominent Or sound (eg Cora, Coralie, Aurora, Oriana etc) are a mouthful and it doesn't work
    :-(. It also ends in an EE sound so sounds funny with a first name ending in -ie or-y
    4. We like nicknames
    5. We want something in the sweet spot between popular and obscure, unusual but familiar.

    We have considered but crossed off the following:
    Rosalie
    Clementine
    Mirabelle
    Coralie
    Cecily
    Ione

    These are the two left standing:
    Celeste- but i can tell DH isn't feeling it and it isn't great with Susannah
    Beatrice- we both like it. I'm not sure if i really love it but am open to persuation.

    Can you help me??I'm really starting to worry! Thank you so much for reading :-)

    If you're not loving Beatrice, I would suggest Beatrix. Beatrix is just a bit spunkier, and sounds incredible with Juniper. Beatrix Susannah is beautiful! (Nns Bee, Trixie, Beatie).
    Other options:
    Philippa Susannah nn Pippa
    Eleanor Susannah nn Ellie, Nellie, Nora
    Tabitha Susannah nn Tabby
    Matilda Susannah nn Tilly, Milly
    Eloise Susannah nn Ellie
    Penelope Susannah nn Penny, Poppy, Nellie
    Hermione Susannah nn Minnie, Hera
    Phoebe Susannah
    Luna Susannah
    Margot Susannah
    Ginevra Susannah nn Ginny
    Juliet Susannah nn Jules, Jewel, Lettie
    Genevieve Susannah nn Ginny, Eve, Neve
    Scarlett Susannah (I actually love this alliteration!) nn Lettie, Carlie
    Delilah Susannah nn Lilah
    Vivienne Susannah nn Vivi
    Emmeline Susannah nn Emme, Millie
    Verity Susannah nn V

    Best of luck! I hope you like some of these. I looove the name Juniper!
    I'm twenty with a furbaby named Frederick

    * Beatrix * Clementine * Penelope * Cecilia * Margo *

    With Juniper I think I prefer Beatrix to Beatrice. I know the Beatrix/Beatrice debate is a heated one, so sorry if you hated it, but it's a bit more quirky/playful with her sister's name.

    What about...
    Delilah/Delia
    Philippa/Pippa
    Marbella/Maybelle/Mabel
    Saskia
    Ottoline/Ottilie
    Jemima
    Tabitha/Talitha
    Ramona
    Arabella
    Agatha
    Daphne
    Penelope
    Guinevere
    Sybilla/Sybella
