Do you prefer Rebecca or Amelia?

Ok I'm expecting my third (and last!!) baby in May, but my husband and I are struggling to decide on a final girls' name.

I have a son named Joseph Thomas (Henderson) and a daughter named Sophia Grace (Henderson) so we need the name to sound good with Joseph and Sophia. We've decided on William James for a boy, and either:

Rebecca May (Becka)


Amelia Rose (Milly or Mia)

for a girl. Which sounds better as a sibset? Which is a more classic name?

    My first answer to your headline question is: I prefer Rebecca over Amelia, but...

    when I read that you had a son already named Joseph I wanted to point out if I may that in the Bible the name Rebecca was Joseph's grandmother. Not many people care about this, but if you do I think someone should tell you so you can go about making your decision ;)

    Since Rebecca existed before Amelia, Rebecca would be a more classic name.

    Good luck and congrats! I just had my daughter and motherhood is wonderful, isn't it? ;)

    Amelia Rose is beautiful.

    Joseph, Sophia and Mia sound lovely as a sib-set.

    Good luck :)

    I'd prefer Rebekah Mae

    but spelled Rebecca I dislike, so I am going to choose Amelia Rose

    Good luck

    i like Rebecca May better, but hate the nickname Becka...yuck.

    Rebecca is a biblical name, definitely more classical

    but Amelia Rose is so romantic

    why do you need to give her a nickname? those names are beautiful alone.

    I have never been a fan of the name Amelia. Rebecca is a nice name though and is becoming rare.

    I absolutely love Amelia Rose, going by Milly (:

    They are both very classic, but I prefer Amelia, because Rebecca seems a little dated. But it is still classic.
