    Monet, Mirabelle, and ?????

    I almost feel like I painted myself into a corner naming my first two Monet and Mirabelle, because now I have to find a name that is complementary, yet not too matchy, and I have to struggle with the issue of using an M name or not for the third. We want a name that is accessible and pronounceable in America. Obviously I don't mind unusual names, but I prefer them to be "familiar," in that someone would at least have heard of it before, even if they don't know anyone else with that name.

    Some names we've considered so far:


    Alessandra
    Anneliese
    Aurora
    Aveline
    Beatrice
    Celia
    Cora
    Coralie
    Cosette
    Dahlia
    Dorothea
    Elinor
    Eloisa
    Eloise
    Elsa
    Esme
    Flora
    Georgina
    Giselle
    Helena
    Helene
    Isadora
    Isolde
    Lisette
    Louisa
    Magnolia
    Maisie
    Margaux
    Marlow
    Marlowe
    Natasha
    Paloma
    Sabine
    Sasha
    Tatiana


    Thoughts on these names or other suggestions?? Thanks!

    If you plan on having other children, I don't think you have to choose an "M" name. If you don't think you'll have anymore children, then it would be ok to have the same initial as long as the names are different enough. However, if you really can't find an "M" name you LOVE, then break the pattern! No one is going to arrest you!

    I like these from your list (faves are bolded).

    Anneliese
    Aveline
    Coralie
    Cosette
    Dahlia
    Eloise
    Flora
    Isolde
    Lisette
    Magnolia
    Margaux
    Marlowe
    Sabine

    I think you should stick with a M name - personally it bugs me when themes or letters aren't applied to all the names in a sibset. All the M names on your list are great, because they all have a 'Mah', 'May' or 'Mag' sound which means that all your children will have names that sound quite different. I like Margaux or Marlowe the best, but I do like all the M names on your list!

    Bes tof luck!
