We're just starting to look at baby names for our new DD who is due in five months. The names I like so far include:

Ellen
Jasmine
Emily

Which do you prefer? I would like a name that is classic and doesn't really say anything about poshness/ lack of!

Emily is lovely...

Ellen.

Emily is lovely but a bit dull and jasmine is a bit on the popular side.

Ellen is dd1s middle name I like it

Jasmine is what dh wanted to call dd1 and I said no, I'm not keen on it.

I love the name Emily.

I wanted my daughters names to be uncommon(ish) and not too out there or posh, they are called Katy, Hannah and Abbie.

Ellen or Emily.

I think Ellen goes best with your kids names xx

I like Jasmine the best. Think the other two are dull, sorry!

I love Emily but it is quite popular where I am. I'm not very keen on Jasmine, but I do like Ellen. It is quite traditional, not so popular. It helps I know a lovely Ellen I think wink

1st. Emily
2nd. Jasmine
3rd. Ellen (not that keen sorry). I do like Helen though which is rarely used these days.

Ellen is the nicest imo. Emily is very popular, Jasmine less so. I think Ellen is timeless and elegant.

Ellen, imo!

Emmeline?

Out of those three, Emily is the best.
Jasmine is not so great - I'm thinking of a disney princess.

Ellen I love it
Jasmine too Aladdin
Emily is nice but more popular

Jasmin and Emily - yes

Ellen - no

I think Jasmine is the least class-/background-neutral of the three. Since that is a consideration I would avoid.

Ellen here too.

I prefer Emily.
