We don't know baby's gender so need two sets of names. I am in love with 3 boy names and have others in reserve...
Girls names I'm struggling with and I'm someone who likes to have a plan (for everything) so having a few names is lovely for me and stops my mind racing at 3am when I should be sleeping, lol.
We had a shortlist as follows:
Evelyn, Olivia & Bess. But I'm going off them and LOVE the name Roberta. Only hubby doesn't. I love old and very old names.
Are there any names of a similar style/era to Roberta that you love and could recommend? :)

Do you mean boys names made feminine? Andrewina, Thomasina, Williamina.

I like Theodora! And Mary, but not enough.
CK, not sure it's just masculine names for a girl. I like robust names as opposed to delicate...
Going to look at that link AR

Ooh, love Clara. Hubby says No. And No from him on Ottilie. And Josephine.

Ducky, I don't like Rowan but like Rowena. Hubby says No. I like Regan. Hubby says No.
Quite a pattern here! Yet we have identical taste in boy names

I know a Roberta and she gets called Bobbie by everyone. She hates her name! I suppose you have to think what it can be shortened to as well.
Claudia and Edith are great names. Evelyn and Olivia are beautiful.

Little PixieWhat suggestions does hubby have?
He'a happy with the shortlist we had and doesn't understand why I've gone off them!! :D

LD, I like Bobbie for Roberta, was that a Railway Children character? Ours couldn't be a Bobbie, hubby has 2 nephews and one is called Bobby! Probably can't work then.... I'm an idiot!

Oooo Tess is a lovely name! Other strong, old school names...Eleanor, Katherine, Elizabeth (could be a bess!), our neighbour is called Mairead which I love, Dorothea (Thea?), peggi, and my favourite - Florence (in Scotland you'd be Flossie for short!)

I teach a Keitha and then there is always Ursula...

I've stumbled across Dinah, a name I'd forgotten and like. I like the various shortenings of Katherine and Elizabeth, but hubby doesn't. He likes Florence but I don't like Flo/Flossie.
Not sure i like Tessa just as it is.
I like Mabel. And Agnes. Ah well, ages to decide :D
