  1. Hello!

    I\'m looking for some honest name advice...I can't take any more from friends/relatives

    My 2 year old daughter's name is Ruby...I am expecting another girl next month and am looking for another name that is somewhat complimentary...but not too matchy.

    Here are my current ideas:

    1. Scarlett

    2. Pearl

    3. Maisie (Maisy)

    TIA for any advice!

  2. My sister has a DD named Ruby. Her oldest DD's name is Caitlin. They don't really match. I think I like Maisy best for you.

  3. Honestly, I think Scarlett and Pearl are cute but very matchy. I like Maisy.

  4. I have twin cousins-Ruby and Lillian, They sound good together to me, but then again my cousins are 30 and I've been hearing them together forever.

  5. thanks for the thoughts everyone. I think Maisy/Maisie is my fav too. The only thing I worry about is it not being "grown up" enough as she gets older...not sure.

  6. My niece is named Maisie and she just turned 21... I really love that name and her sister is named Sadie...

  7. My niece spells her name "Mazy" and I really like it.

  8. I think Pearl is cute but it is kind of cheesy with Ruby (ditto for Scarlett). I like Maisy/Maisie and I could see that fitting with Ruby, but I agree with the worry that it sounds a bit childlike. It depends on how you feel about that in the end.

    Other names I really like with Ruby:
    Mae
    Nellie
    Lucy
    Sadie
    Molly
    Hazel
    Rose/Rosie
    Iris

    Good luck to you! Girl names are difficult b/c there are so many choices. I love the name Ruby!

  9. I absolutely LOVE Pearl with Ruby. It would be a perfect choice.
    Some other names that I like with Ruby (a terrific name!) are:
    Iris
    Ivy
    Stella
    Poppy
    Hazel - also love this with Ruby
    Daisy
    Edna
    Opal
    Violet
    Sage
    Flora
    Willa

    Scarlett is too matchy, and too trendy. Maisie is nicknameish but it is a really cute nn for Margaret.

    Good luck next month!

  10. what about Macy instead of Maisie/Maisy?

    i think Macy would age well

    (or spelled Macey)

    i like Scarlett a lot...but it does seem matchy with Ruby

  11. Some other ideas:

    Clara

    Eliza

    Lucy

  12. thank you for the advice/suggestions...

    so far we are leaning towards Maisy Pearl (middle name)

  13. hmmmm...

    Hazel...I like that one, hadn't thought of it. I don't know what I'd o for middle name though.

  14. I don't have any suggestions. I just wanted to say that there's a good song called "Ruby " by the Kaiser Chiefs. They're a British band. Have you ever heard it ? Maybe your daughter would like the song. It's at youtube.

  15. I think Pearl would be cute with Ruby. I also think Rose would go well with Ruby. Scarlett would remind me of the woman in the book Scarlet Letter.

  16. hmmmm...Hazel...I like that one, hadn't thought of it. I don't know what I'd o for middle name though.

    I personally LOVE the name Hazel. Do you have any family names you could use with it?

  17. I know someone whose first daughter's name is Ruby and whose second daughter's name is Stella.

  18. Hi. I have twin girls named Ruby Elaine and Lila Jacqueline (MN's are after our mothers). Everyone we come into contact with says they love the names "Ruby and Lila" (the "I" is pronounced long). Other names I like with Ruby are:

    Audrey
    Marilyn
    Sadie
    Marlena
    Iris
    Harper
    Hadley
    Harlow
    Phoebe (I LOVE this name, but, Dh didn't )

    Good luck!

    For what it's worth, I wanted to add that I really like "Hazel" . I'm just not crazy about 2 "color" names which is why I didn't use my favorite combo - Ruby and Violet.
