Like most of them, and would like Zara if it weren't also the equivalent of top shop.

my favourite is Saskia.

i also like Zara, Sophia, India and Xanthe.

not so keen on Thea and Isadora.

really don't like Elodie, Freya and Georgia.

Saskia on my short list. Lovely name. Definitely the best on your list.

FelicityWasCold Sun 17-Feb-13 12:14:31

Saskia, India or Sophia for me. All lovely names.

YummyMummyFeelingFunny Sun 17-Feb-13 12:28:34

Love love love Saskia, Thea, India and Xanthe. All currently on my list.

DH is away for work and I wanted to talk names with him so.. I ended up here grin

I love India, Saskia and Thea

DH wants Xanthe, Freya or Sophia

Is Sophia too popular?

Would you ever worry about a child developing a lisp and not being able to say ther own name? Does that rule out Saskia, Sophia, Thea?

India & Saskia are great names. I know cousins called these and they are great girls. Also love Thea & Zara. Hate Freya and no fussed about the others.

baskingseals Sun 17-Feb-13 19:11:04

you are right.

dh is wrong.

stick to your guns grin

DessieLou Sun 17-Feb-13 19:23:27

All nice but Zara gets my vote!

LOVE India - beautiful name but I have to confess I'm biased.

Saskia and Xanthe are also really lovely and Elodie is very pretty.

Not fussed on the others and not at all keen on Isadora or Thea.
Good list though!

Great list of names, think we have similar taste.

My favourites are Thea, Elodie and Isadora. Not sure how to pronounce Xanthe.

Emilythornesbff Mon 18-Feb-13 08:45:38

Thea, Freya, Sophia.
Nice.

Love love LOVE Saskia!! Sounds so lovely and cozy, but very unusual without being at all strange. Elodie and Thea are also gorgeous! And all the others would sound great too!
I love your taste!!

Nice list. My favourite is Thea. Also really like India and Elodie. Xanthe and Isadora are a bit poncey. The only one I really don't like is Georgia.

fortheloveofpinkflamingos Fri 22-Feb-13 19:40:39

Which do you think goes best with DSs Arlo and Fabian?

YummyMummyFeelingFunny Fri 22-Feb-13 20:49:55

I think Saskia or India go best.

wiltingfast Fri 22-Feb-13 23:42:19

Thea is my far out favourte name on that list smile

I also like Elodie.

The others don't move me in comparison.

Zaphiro Sat 23-Feb-13 00:25:44

Elodie and Xanthe are the nicest.

CruCru Sat 23-Feb-13 17:12:33

Would you consider Zahrah? Then people won't think of the shop.

fortheloveofpinkflamingos Sun 24-Feb-13 23:19:08

I think Zahrah would be constantly spelt wrong, although it is pretty

Greensleeves Sun 24-Feb-13 23:26:46

There is a MNer who has a Saskia and a Thea! I like them both.

I also love Xanthe, Isadora, Georgia and Elodie from your list.

My current favourites (not that you asked for them but you might like one!) are Tara, Bonnie, Eileen, Maud, Iolanthe and Roisin.

CruCru Mon 25-Feb-13 09:55:01

I used to know a Zahrah when I was growing up; I think it is an Arabic name.

Phosphene Mon 25-Feb-13 10:40:06

I like Zara and Georgia.
