Looking for a classic, feminine name for a little girl!
My husband and I are going to ttc in the next few months and I want to have a short list of names. Right now, we have Caroline, Isabel, Aria and Elizabeth. We love feminine names, aren't really into unisex names but want something that isn't overly common. Please send any and all suggestions my way!!!
Caroline is on my names list and I love it. I'd pair it with a less feminine mn. I'm partial to Elizaneth as it's my name =P My family nn me Beth but I prefer Liz. Caroline Elizabeth is beautiful and I don't think over the top in femininity or oldness haha. Isabel is also on my list with nn Izzy. I also like Georgia. It's a feminine name but if she ends up being a tom boy she can go with Georgie or George for nn
I love the name Celia or Cecelia or in Italian Consiglia :-) Lillian, Mary, Daisy, Diana :-) Kaya, Angelina, Angie, Madeline, Jenna, Have fun keep us posted........
My daughter is Caroline Elizabeth & we love that name. She is 5. & the name suits her w out seeming too old for her.
I'm not sure had I hadn't thought of Anna. It is simple, yet beautiful!
Thank you all for the suggestions.
How does everyone feel about Caroline? A coworker had a nasty response when I mentioned it as a possible name.
Out of all the names you posted... I like
-Charlotte (although it is very popular right now)
-Amelia (also popular)
-Isabel (also popular)
I see you posted Ann, what about Anna? Its still very classic and feminine sounding. I don't hear too often nowadays.
Or what about something like Rose. Very classic and feminine sounding. It's more commonly used as a middle name, so it would definitely stand out in my opinion.
i always suggest my daughters name, Georgia. it's classic feminine and you really dont hear it that often. she's 6 and we've only met three other people with the name, all adult women.
While I'm at it....I'm going to list names we like and maybe you guys can help us with combos?
Daniel (as a possible middle name after
Andrew (again, possible mn for my husband)
Ann (family name)
Elizabeth (preferably middle name)
Ray (dad's middle name, which could be used for male or female mn)
Names that I like are...
Ilaria (ih LAHR ee ah)
Eleanor - I also like Lenora a lot for a mn
Jane - this is my favorite girl name. I love its simplicity and femininity. I don't get why everyone thinks of it as "plain" just because of the "Plain Jane" thing. In my opinion, they are just words that rhyme.
Charlotte - although I know its very popular
Emilia - we have Jane Emilia as a combo right now
I love Elizabeth as a fn, especially with the nn's Effie, Ellie/Ella, Elsa (even though it has infinite other nn's too: Elle, Eliza, Beth, Betty, Betsey, Liz, Lizzie, Liza, Izzy and I know two girls that went by Bissy and Eli [like the boy name] with the fn Elizabeth too)
I've come to love Aria recently but it doesn't match out style at all so I feel like it won't fit for us. :(Caroline is fine but I much prefer the spunkier Coraline nn Cora. Or the name Cora on its own.
I'm not a fan of Isabel(la) because it seems too popular for my taste in the last few years. BUT all the names you have so far are very nice all the same.
