Baby names

I think we have a boys name sorted but still struggling for a girl. Preference is for something traditional but not too popular...

Any ideas?

 

Adela

Beatrice

Cora

Dulcie

Edith

Evelyn

 

Flora 

 

Geraldine

Ginevra

 

Lettice

Maud

Millicent

Rowena

Salome

Selina

Thora

Ursula

Verity

 

I like Ophelia, our boy’s name is also Shakespearean, but it’s a bit tragic. 

Helen, although Clubbers might marry her so you have to weigh up how you feel about his being your son-in-law.

I like Salome but the history is too full on perhaps  

 

Great list Judo. I like Evelyn a lot but can’t get it across the line with my partner.  Ursula is also solid. 

I like Evelyn too.

When Evelyn Waugh was married to Evelyn Gardner, the Mitfords used to call them girl Evelyn and boy Evelyn.

Love Viola but my brother just named his daughter Violet after our great grandmother...

It's a fine Shakesperean name and the 80s is now 30 years ago!

 

Lily is very popular at the moment. 

As is Emily, which is a shame. 

I like Imogen.

I love Hero.  I wish we had been brave enough to use it.  

Elodie?

Verity?

Lara?

 

"It's a fine Shakespearen name"

 

I thought it came from John Lennon's solo work

Love Genevieve but don’t want her to be a Jen. 

Audrey is quite popular but Aubrey is a slightly less common variation that I was toying with. 

I never knew Hero was a name, except for the  Japanese name. 

Salome would be Salami here in Australia, 100%

My other half has just pointed out that “Imogen” is not massively attractive when pronounced with a kiwi accent  ... it’s a fair point. 

Have you tried the app where you both tick yes to names you like and it tells you when you match?

If you like Shakespearean names, how about Miranda, Helena, Nerissa, Emilia, Beatrice, Celia or Eleanor?

Love Eleanor but I have a niece called Elena. 

Helena possibly also out for similar reasons and also close to my sons name. 

Not quite Celia but we were thinking possibly Celeste. 

Not sure why but the name Apolline springs to mind.

You should download the BabyName app.

You and your partner each download it and you swipe left for no and right for yes like one of those dating apps. You then sync them and it lets you know the names you both said yes to.

Apart from anything some of the "names" are hilarious.

I like Salome but the history is too full on perhaps  

That and when she goes to school and gets called Salami

Thanks Diablo. Sounds like the Kinder app but may have a bit more to choose from. 

Don't let popularity worry you. Names wax and wane, it just doesn't matter 

in the 80s everyone was called Sarah, Claire or Louise

The whole baby name app thing: htf does anyone not know enough names to fucking choose one.  people have managed for a very long time without.  

Oh I met a Sylvia recently and thought that's a name that needs to come back.

Ariadne

Atigone

Euphemia

Calliope

Odette

Ophelia

Phoebe

Juliet

Aubrey is a mans name, non?

Sylvie is a good name.

Saoirse... ...which means freedom. 

Then she goes to school and gets called 'Sore Arse'. Do none of you people think?

Taramasalata?

Esfinkta?

Angora?

Jayn?

YoggShogloth?

Gorgonzola?

Yeah, every time I see Saoirse, I think "sore arse", too, and I'm 43, ffs.

"The whole baby name app thing: htf does anyone not know enough names to fucking choose one.  people have managed for a very long time without. "

Its largely a gimmick but provides a quick way of finding mutually acceptable names which you may not have both thought of. Largely it is just for fun.

Yeah but you’re also you, Badders....
