Baby Name Needed – Girl Name for Edie’s Sister

A reader named Andrea is expecting her second daughter in May and she’d appreciate some name suggestions. Here’s what she writes:

My husband and I love unusual names that have a little bit of a retro feel (my first daughter is Edie). We’ve been trying to think of something fun and different but still feminine. A few we like: Camilla, Lina, Romi, Gia, Neve and Leigh.

Here are some other names I think they might like:

Beatrix
Bettina
Blythe
Celia
Colette
Cora
Daphne
Della
Fern
Flora
Gemma
Hazel
Iola
Iris
Isla
Jill
Kate
Lida
Livia
Louise
Lucy
Mabel

Mona
Nelle
Nessa
Nina
Odette
Pearl
Pia
Rita
Rose
Ruby
Sabina
Sally
Stella
Sylvie

Which of the above do you like best with Edie? What other names would you suggest to Andrea?


Baby Name Needed – Girl Name for Emmett’s Baby Sister

A reader named Teresa wrote:

We are having a hard time choosing a name for our baby girl. She will have a big brother named Emmett Quinn. Our last names starts with K and ends with -ER. We like names that are different, but not weird. We also tend toward 2-syllable names.

Here are a few ideas:

Alice
Audra
Beatrix
Corinne
Daisy
Daphne
Della
Gemma
Georgia
Greta
Hazel
Helen
Iris
Lila
Lucia
Martha
Mona
Myra
Nella
Olive
Petra
Polly
Rhea
Roma
Ruby
Shirley
Stella
Sylvie
Tilda
Willa

The name Emmett was most popular around the turn of the (last) century, so I found many of these by scanning the Social Security Administration’s lists of popular baby names from random years in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Do you like any of the above with Emmett? What other names would you suggest to Teresa?
