First girl after 5 boys- need help!

we have 5 boys named: Ben, Isaac, Joshua, Joel and Caleb. 

and we're currently expecting a girl :)


I just need some help with suggestions please. I like biblical names, saints names (I am Catholic) and traditional names, sometimes unique names, but that would most likely be used as a middle. 


Our favorite right now is: 

Naomi Francesca or

Naomi Maeve...


Other thoughts are:

Helena Sloane

Francesca Maeve

Helena Phoebe

Naomi Hazel

Naomi Beatrice

Francesca Claire

Francesca Opal

Francesca Hazel

Some of my favorite names are your middle choices like Hazel, Phoebe, and Maeve. I think all of these qualify as classic names, so I'd consider them as a first name too. I also really like Beatrice.

Naomi, Francesca, and Helena are lovely names but aren't my style so I'd probably go with Francesca because I like the nn options. If nicknames are an issue for you, you may factor that in.

I really like Naomi Maeve for you.  Francesca Claire would be my runner up.  If you don't mind mixing things up a bit, I think Clare Francesca is also pretty.

Though I prefer Maeve to Francesca, I prefer Naomi Francesca as a combination. Among your other choices, I prefer Helena Phoebe and Francesca Claire.

Here are other Biblical names for you to look through: Berenice, Abigail, Miriam, Judith, Deborah, Lea(h), Ruth, Susanna(h), Eve, Lydia, and Martha.

And some saints' names (I put in some Blesseds and left out some of the more "out there" choices): Cecilia, Victoria, Diana, Teresa, Therese, Veronica, Adelaide, C/Katherine, Bernadette, Bridget, Emily, Christina, Jane, Isidora, Claudia, Claudine, Ingrid, Irene, Jeanne, Joanne, Joanna, Juliana, Julie, Juliette, Dorothy, Josephine, Genevieve, Georgia, Marianne, Rose, Laura, Lucy, Madel(e)ine, Margaret, Patricia, Monica, and Marina.

I agree with the first sentence, I love the name Maeve but for some reason like Naomi Francesca for you. It's a name that will stand out amongst her big brothers but will also fit in nicely with their names.

Let us know what you decide!

Naomi Francesca, though I still prefer Naomi Frances over them all. Maeve is a name that I've never been fond of, sorry. Of the others in the list, Naomi Beatrice or Francesca Claire.

Congrats! My favourites from your list are Naomi Francesca and Helena Phoebe.

Helena and Phoebe have similar meanings (translations vary; this site gives them as (light, torch, bright) and (bright one) respectively) which I think is adorable.

i love all the names on your list, though. Your daughter will have a beautiful name whichever one you choose.

Other Saint/Blessed names that I like with your sons' names are (some probably would be mns):

Adeline, Anastasia, Augusta, Ava, Bridget, Camilla, Catherine, Cecilia, Christina, Claudia, Demetria, Diana, Edith, Elizabeth, Endellion, Eva, Flora, Frances, Genevieve, Georgia, Laura, Lydia, Magaret, Mariana, Matilda, Merryn, Natalia, Paula, Priscilla, Regina, Rita, Rosalie, Rose, Seraphina, Sofia, Susanna, Tabitha, Teresa, Theodora, Theresa, Veronica, Victoria, Winifred, Yvette, Zita

(My favourites being Catherine, Edith, Eva, Paula, Susanna and Tabitha.)
