We are due a baby girl in the summer and, having been convinced it was a boy, are now trying to think about girls names. I love Sophia, Claudia and Rosa, but would love some other suggestions to add into the mix. Let me know what you think!

Ooh, thank you. I like Clara, Flora and Celia (or Cecilia). Slightly concerned about the Flora margarine connection though...

I have 3 daughters - one a Sofia, one an Anna and the other the ever popular Olivia wink

We had also thought of Claudia ( this is my husbands favourite), Nina and Juliet.

Beware of 'spreads easily' jokes with Flora.

Thanks so much for all the suggestions and sorry for not replying sooner - RL took over a bit then computer not working! There are some great suggestions here (including one very similar to my own name, and some that are the same as my friends' names so I couldn't use those) - I definitely seem to have a thing for girls' names ending in A. I especially like Alexa, which doesn't seem to be too common at the moment. Still leaning towards Rosa or Claudia the most I think - we basically want something beautiful that isn't super, super popular and won't date too badly. I knew a few Claudias around my age (not actually friends, but friends of friends or acquaintances) (all beautiful which is maybe why I like the name!) so thinking it's the sort of name that's always been reasonably well used but never 'in fashion'. I know about the meaning and don't think it bothers me. Obviously it would be nice if it meant something pretty but actually I don't think most people care especially about the meaning of their name - I don't even know what mine means!
