    Default Help with baby girl name!

    Hi all, I am sick of having potential baby names ruined by the opinions of friends and family, so thought I would ask here as I won't take it so personally.
    We have a boys name picked out but unsure for a girl.
    Our daughter is Louella Charlotte and I've struggled to find a girls name this time around as I used my two favourite names on her...
    We have been considering Eloise the last two days and wondering if it is too similar to Louella or if they go nicely (Lulu and Ellie). I want something soft and pretty as well as uncommon.
    This morning we thought of Eloise Quinn, what are others thoughts? Our surname starts with H.
    Our other top names are
    Hannah Bree
    Matilda ? But neither blow me away.

    Due in three weeks....

    I like it - it's a very pretty name.

    I suppose they have similar sounds in them, but I don't think they're too similar to use.

    Oh Thankyou ladies I was thinking about it this morning and said Ellie Quinn and said to hubby it sounds like Eloquent. He told me to stop over thinking it laughing at me lol. I wish babies were like cabbage patch dolls and came out named! Haha

    I like it. I've always loved the name Eloise. I wish I could convince hubby (he doesn't like any names I like, so that's not a reflection on Eloise at all. He just has a different taste 😕)
    Gorgeous name, and works with Louella.

    I desperately wanted a Louella but hubby vetoed it. Gosh it's beautiful though! I would go Hannah as I think it's most complimentary, Eloise is a little too similar. Especially as it could also be shortened to El or Ellie, maybe not by you guys but school friends might - it's where my mind goes. Hannah Quinn sounds like mannequin though 😉. Maybe Hannah Grace or something equally feminine?

    Eloise Quinn is really pretty, and I don't think sounding like eloquent is a bad thing!
