    first daughter


    found this site via the guardian- am an avid reader of the british telegraph birth announcements but this (in terms of exciting choices) seems even more fruitful a place

    we're expecting a daughter and have found ourselves at a bit of a stalemate.
    our boys are Caius and Otto.

    My partner's choice for a daughter is either Polly or Estelle. I'm not sold on either.
    First pregnancy we picked out Romy for a girl but now I'm not 100% on it.
    Looking for something a little offbeat- whilst I like both, Polly/Estelle are a little cutesy for me.
    I love Sorcha (more anglicised version of Saoirse), but really any suggestions would be great!

    Looking forward to any replies..

    I think Estella would be nicer than Estelle with your boys names.

    How about Lucia, Cora, or Sephira.

    I like Saoirse, but with the original spelling.
    Just a name lover.

    I should have been a bit clearer- Sorcha isn't actually an Anglicised derivation of Saoirse, it's just easier to pronounce. It's a separate name, also Gaelic, prn Sor-ka.
    I have just seen how often people mispronounce Saoirse as Sor-sha.

    I love Isla and Cora (LOVE) but both are just so popular!

    Names we've been considering other than Romy and Sorcha are (my choices) Minerva, Nola, Pallas (I adore this name).
    Something unusual, but not unpronounceable.
    we also both like Sosie but can't think of a more formal name for it, plus aren't sure how it suits our boys' names!
