Post subject: Old English Girls names!
Hi All

So I have narrowed my boys names down to two! We had decided but I have now decided that the one I like is too common so have come up with another lol but I cannot think of a girls name I like.

I want something old fashioned as my lo is called Elsie

Names I definately don't want for different reasons ie too common, know people with them orjust don't like them are:

Grace, Lily, Milly, Evie, Ava, Eva, Daisy, Lola, Lottie, Sopia/e Amy and more I;m sure, but have you ladies got any suggestions please?

I quite like Rosie and Darcie. I did like Nellie but it won't go with the surname Very Happy

My mum called me Ailsa because she doesnt like common names. I hate it Laughing nobody can pronounce it and it drives me mad but to be fair its scottish.. english names are alot easier to pronounce.

I do like rosie! Very girly and elegant. I like the name Eve but I doubt its unusual. I want my second daughter to be called that but OH wont let me as we already have a dd with a 3 letter name

I love Emily. It is quite modern, but I think of it as an older name, as my great great auntie was called that. She lived to 106.
