Imogen - like it
Claudia - not so keen
Emilia - like it (We have a number of Emily's round here but no Emilia's)
Isla - I think it is a tiny bit faddy, but a nice name. But my daughter has a 'faddy' name, so don't let that stop you if you love it smile
Georgia - not so keen

Other suggestions:

Sara
Laura
Lauren
Laurel (only because I LOVE this one)

Claudia - love it.
Imogen - next best.
Lauren - hear it a lot.
Louise or Louisa - hadn't seen these for ages but definitely starting to re-emerge.

Was also thinking of Eloise, Victoria, Dorothy.

Imogen - like alot but fairly popular amongv my DDs peer groups(mine are 12 and 14yo)

Claudia - Love.

Emilia - Lovely but so popular atm.

Isla - Love. I wanted this but DH said no. Weirdly my 12yo currently has 2 in her class but we move around alot and its the first time we have ever met any Islas.

Georgia - nice but does not jump out at me.

How about Freya?

Violet? Iona? Clara?

I like Claudia best form your list.

Isla is lovely - are you having middle names?

mrsnobby Wed 30-Jan-13 21:42:40

Thank you ladies.
Like Emma.
Love Freya but another one we can't use am afraid.
Middle names would be Selina Rose or Rose Selina- both family names

Like all your names but they're v popular if you care about such things. Georgia my favourite - good mix of popular and traditional.

I like Claudia and Imogen. I know many will say all your names are popular but I'm a teacher and I have never taught any girls by any of the names on your list and I've been teaching for too long smile

I like Georgia from your list. LOVE Selina Rose! (could this not be full name?). I heard of a Selina Rose the other day and it struck me as a really pretty name combo.
How about Hannah, Hayley, Elena, Helena, Alice, Lucy?

Love Imogen and Emilia. Claudia always reminds me of the Babysitter Club books!
