Elsie. Dislike Matilda.
Elsie Charlotte or something long - Scarlett?
If you want an uncommon name, I read the other day that Matilda was about 20th most popular in Australia last year so there may be more of them around than you think.
I like Elsie, but I think Elsa may be better when they're older.
As far as middle names go, if one of your family has a name that sounds good with it, I would pick that.
Failing that I like
From a brief Google, Elsa means truth, so another avenue to explore is names that also mean something significant to you.

ah thanks, but am now a bit confused whether to go elsa or elsie - i do prefer elsie but agree elsa is more suitable for when she is older. my DD1 is clara so would it be too matchy to go clara and elsa?
I do like
do you think a 3 syllable middle name or just one, problem with one is they all seem like generic filler names eg rose, may, june, anne,
I like the sound of elsie May.
dont really have other suitable family names - used one up for dd1.
getting confused and only couple weeks to go.... the help is really appreciated though, as i keep second guessing myself.
I don't really like the sound of Elsa and Clara together for sibling names however I think Elsie Charlotte sounds really lovely and Elsie May has a nice sound to it too x
Gorgeous names! I had Elsie and Matilda on my list for belly babe, but Matilda got crossed off when I did a prac in a childcare centre and there were so many Matilda/Tillys. I'm not much good with middle names, I used my Pop's for DS and DD is getting my Nan's, but I would go with Elsie. I think it is fine for an adult as well as a little one
Thank you - i think i will stick with Elsie as i just dont think clara and elsa go so great together and i think elsie should be fine when she is older - there will be so many other similar girlie names like evie, lily, daisy, ellie, poppy etc of that generation that i dont think it should be out of place.
okay so for middle names - our last name is two syllable
so of the suggestions
nothing is 100% grabbing me so any suggestions welcome or do you love any of above?
