As above really. DD is a few days old now and we are not sure which one to choose.

Any feedback is welcome. I'm pretty sure I like Iris best. DH likes Honor.

I love Saskia but my DH hates it! Iris is next best.

Nell if a nickname, then Honor, Saskia, Iris in that order.

Nell

I love both Nell and Honor.

Saskia - less used than the others.

Which is your and DH's 2nd choices - just to see if you match up at all down the list?

Honor or Nell.
Both very pretty, but not overtly "cute".

lovely names - my favourite is Iris (one i would like to use myself if i have a DD) followed by honor. Let us know what you decide!

Nell. Lush (and my nickname, but legitimately a name in its own right IMHO).

I really love the name Iris!

Iris, I would use this if I had another dd.

squoosh Fri 05-Oct-12 13:22:10

Yes, just Nell, by itself, not short for Helen or anything.

Iris followed by Nell. Not keen on Honor and really dislike Saskia sounds a bit TOWIE to me.

Honor, Honor, Honor, never had a girl, never will and readily sorry I was never able to consider this name.
Iris is fine. I agree that Saskia is bit TOWIE.

Saskia or Iris, both lovely.

Not keen on Honor especially spelled without the u and Nell is too much of a nickname IMO though I do really like it for Eleanor.

Saskia and Nell are both fabulous. Honor is unusual and has a good sonorous ring to it. Iris is ho hum.

squoosh Fri 05-Oct-12 14:26:10

Oh yeah, Saskia is a bit TOWIE isn't it? It's a bit of a 'I'm dead classy me' kind of name.

Poor Saskia.

Yes Saskia is a bit Towie, I had an odd feeling about it and couldn't work out why. I think that must be what it is. Not really sure on my second favourite now though!

DH likes Nell after Honor.

Kelerina Fri 05-Oct-12 14:47:50

My favourite is Nell, then Iris. Really dislike Saskia and Honor

MadBusLady Fri 05-Oct-12 14:55:46

Honor. Beautiful strong, elegant name, and with a bit of crowbarring nickname can be Honey which is cutesy and sweet, so you get both!

Although Rembrandt's wife was a Saskia, she was his model for a number of paintings so it's not all tacky associations.

PropositionJoe Fri 05-Oct-12 15:08:10

Please spell Honour properly if you use it.

squoosh Fri 05-Oct-12 15:09:55

I've only ever seen it spelt Honor when used as a name.

GloriaTechnicolour Fri 05-Oct-12 15:15:51

Honor or Iris. Not very helpful! But I love them both.

CakeBump Fri 05-Oct-12 15:17:57

I read Nell as Neil and though (well obviously not NEIL fgs!!) blush smile

I like Honor the best.

Or Neil, on second thoughts....
