I think the choice is ultimately up to you and your husband. When I think of names, I try to think of a name I would like to have. I have never heard the name Persis so maybe that’s why it isn’t appealing to me. Is it popular in the UK?

I really like the name Vivien Gray but I love the name Zara. Thoughts on using those to?

How about having a list of your top 2 or 3 and just waiting to meet your little girl and see which ones feels right?

Wait until you see their faces.  I still love Vivienne but I would worry that Philippa might be too trendy at the moment.  Not a fan of Persis but if it has special meaning for you then do it.

I echo the comments about waiting until you meet your little ones to name them.  Who knows maybe none of the names will work once you meet those little girls

love the name Vivienne Gray, it is by far the classiest name on the planet 🙂

I also really like all your other names and agree to waiting until you meet them. You have many great names, I’m sure one of them will jump out at you as being the right name for each of your little girls 🙂

@UK Bride:  I like it. I think it’s hard to find a name to stand up to Vivienne to be honest. 

What about Isobel or Isolde Winter or Estella Winter?

@UK Bride:  Well, I love the names you had chosen, but I’m also a major fan of the name Felicity…Felicity Winter sounds like a pretty damn awesome name if you ask me

(But I don’t think Flic as a nn…more like Lissy or Cici)
