    sibling for Marigold

    Hi!
    We have a daughter Marigold and are pregnant with no. 2....
    What names do you think go with Marigold?
    We like names along the lines of Agnes, Clementine, Florence, Fanny and Monty(for a boy!)
    Thanks!

    Marigold? How cute! :-)

    Agnes: I'm personally not an Agnes fan, but if I were, I'd still think Marigold's sister needs a more upbeat name (but that's just me)...

    Clementine: I LOVE Clementine, and think it's beyond fantastic with Marigold! :-)

    Florence: I think Florence could work with Marigold, but part of me thinks the "Flor" aspect creates too much of a flower theme. Hmm...The other part of me thinks Flora would be cute.

    Fanny: I'd definitely stay away from Fanny (inevitable teasing with fanny jokes), but I think Frances, nn Franny, is cute.

    Monty: I think Monty is a great nickname for Montgomery.

    Marigold and:

    Amandine
    Beatrix
    Cordelia
    Dahlia (wait...flower theme again..)
    Dorothea
    Esme
    Felicity
    Genevieve
    Hazel
    Henrietta
    Imogen
    Mabel
    Millicent
    Opal
    Penelope
    Priscilla
    Tamsin
    Tallulah
    Viola
    Winifred
    Zelda

    Boys:
    Atticus
    Alfred
    Barnaby
    Baxter
    Chester
    Conrad
    Edmund
    Gulliver
    Jasper
    Leo
    Linus
    Montgomery (for Monty)
    Phineas
    Simon
    Theodore
    Truman
    Wilson

    I love your style! Good luck! :-)

    Agnes - Unless you live in a super cool place like Manhattan or West L.A. and you want to make a bold statement, I think this is too vintage. Its time will come.
    Clementine - love it!
    Florence - love it, too!
    Fanny - great nn for Frances, Francesca, or Francine
    Monty (for a boy!) - love it, agree with Jill - nn for Montgomery.

    Re: sibling for Marigold

    Are you British or American? I ask because in the U.S., Marigold is (as I'm certain you know!) a really unusual name, but a bit less so in the U.K. Therefore, I think her sister or brother's name should be on the same quirky plane. Monty definitely works, but as for the sister names, I think Clementine is much more ordinary in England but would be a good companion in the U.S. Pearl, which another poster suggested, might be fun as it's an equally quirky gem name vs. flower name. How about Agatha instead of Agnes? Calliope? Guinevere?
