Wwyd if you knew you were having a girl but loved the name Eric for a boy and wanted to call a future son that but you also like Erica do you use Erica ? Even though you like Eric better but you may never have a son then not be able to use either if you don't use Erica?

Thomasina.

I prefer Erica to Eric myself.

What about Georgia, closer to George than Georgina in my opinion.

As in Lady Colin Campbell?

And Nursey, obviously!

Yes, she's only lost the chance to use either version if unexpectedly this is her last child. If she plans another child, I would save the name and use it for the last planned child whatever the gender.

She had decided not to use Erica this time and as they are planning for at least one more will wait till then.
She quite likes alexis but is not sure it will go with Eric or Erica and is to matchy sounding.
Also likes a few more girlies names:
Violet
Stella

I think Stella/Erica
And Stella/Eric
Goes well

I don't like boys' names as girls' names myself (Nigella, Erica, Daniella, etc) .

I also don't like unisex names (I have one, hah! it's in this thread!) tho that's a different issue.

You really couldn't have Eric and Erica IMO, tho of course you may never have a son.

Some "stronger" sounding names I would bracket with Eric:

Agnes, Maud, Sarah, Edith

LOL @ seeker
