Surname beginning with Z quite a funky one. What do you think?

Elspeth. Love it!

Emmy sounds llke a nickname rather than a full name.

Eliza plus z surname might be too many z' s

DebK2012 Fri 07-Dec-12 18:49:22

Like Esme! grin

I'd say Esme or Elspeth (Emmy does sound nn-ey) I actually prefer Eliza (fab name) but without knowing what your surname is would wonder how it would sound.
Nothing against Martha either.
All lovely names.

I'm an Elspeth and recommend it! I've met a few over the years and they all love being Elspeth too. Other names are lovely too though, good choices!

Esme: would you be putting an accent over the final 'e'?

PurpleTinsel Fri 07-Dec-12 21:01:29

I like Esme and Elspeth best.

Would you be saying Ez-may or Es-mee? Big yes to the latter,big no to the former.

Elspeth is lovely and so unusual!

LimeLeafLizard Fri 07-Dec-12 21:55:25

I vote Elspeth! I used to know one as a child and she was lovely.

Martha, Martha or Martha sounds perfect x

Esme with a z surname good get a bit zzzzy.

Elsapeth is lovely and I think better with a z surname.

Emmy to me is a pet name for a little Emma or Emily.

Martha is by far my favourite and Emmy/Esme my least favourites.

Eliza depends on your surname in case the repeated z is too much, and I love Elspeth but again the 's' and 'th' then 'z' is difficult to judge!

FWIW I also like Esther, might work with your name?

Eliza for me. gorgeous name.

Martha always reminds me of hearth and earth. also hand-maiden cinderella type. much prefer Marta, more elegant.

DeekeyDoo Sun 09-Dec-12 20:44:53

Love them all. How about Elsie as well?

smother Tue 11-Dec-12 13:19:34

All lovely. Also what about Elizabeth? Then could have lots of lovely nns, like Lizzie, Elsie, Beth, Betty?

EssieW Tue 11-Dec-12 13:22:44

All nice. Particularly like elspeth. Also Elsa a nice alternative

EllenParsons Tue 11-Dec-12 23:17:11

Martha! Gorgeous name.

notMarlene Tue 11-Dec-12 23:18:45

Elsapeth or Elspeth.

Mathilda?

notMarlene Tue 11-Dec-12 23:19:42

Nice eclear post there hmm Meaning I'd choose either of the two E names from what's mentioned in the OP and by PPs.

MikeLitorisHasChristmasLights Tue 11-Dec-12 23:20:57

Eliza.

Just because I have one and I love it!

KenDoddsDadsDog Chile Tue 11-Dec-12 23:22:14

Martha or Marta

recall Tue 11-Dec-12 23:22:31

Oh Elspeth please....do it for me, my husband wanted a different name and I lost sad It would have really suited her too.

JiltedJohnsJulie Tue 11-Dec-12 23:31:52

Elspeth or Eliza. Envy is a nickname and I know a few Martha's and esmes.

Eggs Tue 11-Dec-12 23:48:01

What about Esmay?

Hello ladies,

What a mixed bag. Still can't decide but will see what the baby looks like I think. We've also added in Flora just to be more confused. Thanks for your opinions!
