Obviously this is just for fun as we're finished having kids.  It doesn't stop me from naming a sister to Madeline (long i, remember).  Here is my small list, wdyt?

Iris

Juniper

Camilla "Milly"

Eliza

Coral

Olive

Dalia

Annabelle

Feel free to play and add onto my list!

Hey, Terra! Sooo, the boys all have names that end in "an", now, would it work for the girls to all have names starting with "M"?? This would be my plan to get Mallory in there somewhere, haha :smileyhappy: Anyway, beyond that plan:

Iris- I should like this more than I do...it's just not as nice as Madeline.

Juniper- This is a fun name, but doesn't have the classic or stately feel of Madeline.

Camilla "Milly"- Now your talking. This is great with Madeline!

Eliza- I think this is very complimentary with Madeline sound and style-wise.

Coral- This is like Juniper in that it seems lacking in comparison, even though it's nice-it's just not strong enough to keep up.

Olive- This is a great name. It allows for a bit of whimsy, but is solid enough to be taken seriously. It may be a good option for you in expressing personality, and "keeping it real".

Dalia- Hmmm, I'm not sure about this one. I'm on the fence. I do like it, but you have set the bar pretty high with Madeline.

Annabelle- I think it's very nice. It's a good fit with Madeline.

I hope everything is going well with you!! Madeline is such a cutie!

Hey, things are well here!  Kids growing like weeds.  Ethan just turned 13, I have a teenager!  How about with you?
I do think of Mallory from time to time.  I forgot one - Harriet, one of Madeline's doll is named this and I love using it on a daily basis and could totally see us with one.  Dh vetoed it when naming Madeline but he doesn't get to play now. :smileywink:  If you want to keep up with me you can check me out on Facebook - Terra Kouwenberg.

It's crazy how fast they grow!  Harriet is just perfect-I love it on it's own, and as a sister to Madeline. It strikes the right balance of classic, intelligent, whimsy,literary, and cute. Facebook friend request sent :smileyhappy:

I have to agree about Harriet, just love it!  Lastnight I bought Madeline a Cabbage Patch Doll for Christmas with the name Madeline Chloe, I couldn't pass it up!

Perfect!  She will love it, I'm sure. The people who get paid to name dolls have a pretty sweet job in my book, haha!
