    Names like Scarlett and Ruby

    I'm really stuck looking for girls names! Trying to make a list has been a nightmare!!
    The two names I realy like are Scarlett and Ruby, but bith are becoming too popular in my area! Although I like names that are recognisable, I don't like them too popular.

    I'd love to see what names you can come up with that remind you (in any way) of Scarlett and Ruby.
    If it helps, I think I liked them because they WERE quite uncommon, but not unheard of. Also, I find them both very pretty, feminine names, but not too over the top.
    Brothers names are Felix nn Fox and Leif.

    Thanks everyone!!!

    Re: Names like Scarlett and Ruby

    The two names you like are not as popular as you think (see the stats below). Of course, the national figures are misleading as they don't take into account how popular a name is in a certain area. Perhaps you've seen these names posted a lot here on Nameberry and that has caused you to hesitate. I prefer Ruby to Scarlett but I'm probably in the minority on this website. All the best!
    FYI - Scarlett is No#210 in the US and Ruby is at No# 113.

    Some other names to consider for Felix and Leif's sister...
    Pearl
    Mae
    Greta
    Opal
    Cora
    Eve / Eva
    Annika
    Alice
    Garnet
    Olive
    Harriet
    June / Juniper
    Calla
    Selah
    Nina
    Audrey
    Eliza
    Adeline
    Clover
    Daphne
    Eloise
    Thea
    Mabel
    Ivy
    Cecily
    Phoebe
    Ingrid
    Thora
    Viola / Violet
    Esme
    Iris
    Thalia
    Laurel
    Jessamine
    Dahlia
    Rose / Rosalie / Rosemary
    All the best,

    @alexa400
    I love, but can't use Juliet and Ivy (already taken by family)
    I love Rosalie but I'm not sure if it is too close to a family member's name, Rosalina- she almost exclusivly goes as "Lina", but she is very close, thoough not close enough to name my child after her!

    I also like Valentine (though I'm not sure if I'm brave enough!!) and Lola.

    @mischa
    I am aware that Scarlett and Ruby aren't as popular as they seem. But they are getting very common in my area. I have met several under the age of 5 (especially Ruby) in the past few months.

    From your suggestions I like
    Pearl
    Garnet
    Harriet
    Eloise
    Cecily (though this would be terrible if she had a lisp!!)
    Rose
