    Girl List - Arrietty, Violet, Artemis, Aurelia, Maeve Ada & Guinevere... any missing?

    Our baby is due in August and I am really having trouble finding girl's names I really *love*. I have asked about a few names on here and am just trying to get a 'final' list together. My daughter's name is Iris Ophelia and my stepson is Orrin, we are Sorrel & Oscar. We are set on Peregrine Morrissey "Penn" for a boy. Surname is Forman.

    I think ultimately I would love a longer unusual first name with a a cute nn and simpler middle, but that being said with Iris we did the opposite ...I just met a little Arianwen at a birthday party the other day and I just loved the unusualness and long sound and I really want that 'Wow what a beautiful name!' reaction like we got with Iris' name for this one if it is a girl..

    First Names:

    Arrietty - love the Borrowers literary connection, unusualness, nn Etty/Etta ( also lit ref from Big Stone Gap Trilogy)
    Violet(ta) - I love this and the nn Etty/Etta, but the flower theme feels a bit forced and and I don't really like the Charlie & the Chocolate Factory ref. or violent/violate similarities
    Artemis - love the mythology connection to big sister Iris, nns Missy or Artie and rareness, just don't want people to think she's a boy or call her Artyfarty
    Aurelia - Like the sound and rareness but it just doesn't have a symbolic or personal meaning to me like some of the others same, and no nns we like
    Ada - Love this but feels too short, nickname for something maybe but don't like any usual Ad - names... Would like to find a longer unusual name with cute nickname preferably, or have a longer interesting middle minimum
    Maeve - Ditto above but growing on me
    Guinevere - like the King Arthur connection (my sister's mn is Ygraine) and the meaning, and that she could go by Gwen, Neve, Eve and Vera but have a more unusual full name

    Middles -the above plus:

    Names we love but can't use:

    Our boy name is still Peregrine Morrissey "Penn"...

    Is there anything missing? Let me know what you think

    Minerva? Longer, plus the mythology connection, and no one will think she is a boy.

    Minerva Seraphine is my fav combo

    Iris Ophelia is so cute!

    My favorite off your list is Arrietty! I find it really cute, pretty, and whimsical. I also love Violetta! I think both would fit well with Iris & Orrin. I agree, Violetta Eve is beautiful! What about Arrietty Fleur?
    nineteen & renaming myself soon
