All through my pregnancy (now 31w) our baby girl was going to be called Flora. Now I have been given a section date for 36w and am just not sure any more!!
Would love some feedback on the following names:
Flora
Martha
Petra
Anya
Middle name to be Mary.

If it helps at all my other children are called:
James
Erica
Samuel

Many thanks to anyone who takes the time to reply grin

I love Flora smile

I also really like Martha,I think either will be fine with your other DC names.

Agree - I like Martha and Flora. However I wouldnt have Martha Mary...

Lol at Martha Mary, would have to opt for may if Martha!!

Love Petra, but think Flora sounds really good with your other children's names. Wouldn't have Martha Mary.

I love flora! Also really like Anya from your list. Agree with other posters, Martha Mary is a bit too much!

I love love love martha! Really not keen on flora, its just butter isnt it!

do you really want 2 girls names ending in " a"

Practice saying " Well my daughters "Erica and xxxa are in the show/over there/visiting later"

For instance Erica and Anya is a tricky combo with all the a's . Erica and Flora is nicer but a bit "matchy" whereas your boys names are a lovely combo but both individual.

They are all real names though and properly spelled so ultimately go for what you love. Practice saying them out loud though-you'll do it a lot!

It does appear that I have a thing for 'a' ending names grin

Martha stands out as really fitting in well with your other children's names. It's very sweet. I see Martha as dark haired, whilst Flora has lighter coloured hair, so perhaps wait and see what she looks like!

I have 2 DDs with 'a' endings and it sounds fine, so don't let that put you off. I do like Flora and it doesn't scream butter at me in the slightest. I like all your options in fact. Congrats and all the best for the birth!

We have chosen Martha Elizabeth as our name (that could all change)

I love Flora, but we have friends with a little girl named Flora and they did get a couple of hmm faces when they announced it.

I do think all your names are lovely Anya Mary works well

Good Luck

LOVE Flora & prefer it to your other options.

I always thought the song was Mother Mary comes to me, is it really Martha?!

I like the name Martha best or even Marsha.

Sleepyfergus Wed 07-Aug-13 12:46:43

And if do go for Martha, you need to get this book. It's adorable!!

Was dd1s fave book for bloody ages a while.

Coconutty grin it is Mother Mary. But Martha Mary sounds very very close to it.

Razzdazz Wed 07-Aug-13 13:38:24

Flora seems to be coming out on top grin

Coconutty Wed 07-Aug-13 13:43:55

I've just sung it and see what you mean! blush

Petra. 'rose-red city half as old as time'

Saffyz Wed 07-Aug-13 18:24:55

Anya

Rhubarbgarden Wed 07-Aug-13 19:35:00

Flora! I love it. Knocks spots off the others.

Flora or Matha are both lovely. Petra is a dog and Anya sounds like a medical condition grin

PinkGlove Wed 07-Aug-13 20:26:02

LOVE Martha, but then I'm bias - it's my nieces name. Love Flora too.
