We are dead set on Harriet but I just heard this name and thought 'oooh'. What do you think?

I really like it but beware of people calling her Vez <shudder>

I knew a girl called this (when I was a young girl). She was a complete witch but I still thought it a pretty name.

I like them both.

Both names are beautiful.

Verity is lovely. It's a bit like Felicity. Nice.

DH hates it...

haven't heard that name for years and years. I think it's lovely.

It was on my list when I had DS1 and DS2... one of my favourite girl's names that I never got to use.

I love it. My DH also hates it hmm

I love it, wanted it for DC2, then he was a DS so had to swiftly change that idea!

Really like it.

Beautiful.

It's a gorgeous name, I love it!

I love it.

But names beginning with V don't go with our surname, so it can't be on our girls name shortlist sad

I know 2 Veritys (30/40 ish) and neither of them have ever been called Vez! It's a gorgeous name (both veritys i know are lovely too).

I love it and one of my good friends at college was called Verity. But we, and she, all shortened it to Vez, which her parents hated, and she was often called Vezzer the lezzer by the school bullies when she was younger sad

My friend was torn between Verity and Harriet a few years ago and went for Verity in the end. It's a lovely name that suits her daughter down to the ground. I've never heard her being called Vez - she gets 'Vetty' occasionally and my DS called her Betsy and then Berity for ages before learning to pronounce it, though!

I love it, but live in the east end of London and my dd came home a while ago and told me all about her new friend Ferrety...so probably wouldn't use it here!

Ha at Vezza The Lezzer - kids are so original.

Oh I LOVE Verity but couldn't use it. We also considered Harriet but of the two I prefer Verity and think it's less prim than Harriet. Verity is pretty without being girly and would suit any age, go for it!

Love it. X

Pretty! Though not if you live up north, ask a northern friend to say it :S
