What are your opinions on these names? X

I love Elizabeth & the name can mature with your DD if she wants - Ellie might choose to be a Beth when she's older etc.
Emily is lovely but a bit meh.
All names ending in 'a' are a no-no for me - living so close to Birmingham they come out with a harsh 'ya' at the end not 'a' <shudder>

Definitely Elizabeth for me. Emily is a bit too wishy washy and Sophia, although a beautiful name, is far too popular at the moment. Also agree that Elizabeth has fab nickname potential, my personal favourite is Libby.

I have a Sofia, she gets Fia as a nickname, I know quite a lot of Emilys and prefer Emma. Elizabeth is nice, but just nice, I don't love it.

Sophia is lovely.
Elizabeth is ok.
Emily is dullsville, sorry.

All lovely- Elizabeth my favourite.

Why choose names that loads of other little girls will have? Elizabeth best of the bunch but the Queen is nearly 90 so Elizabeth has a very old and staid image. Emily is everywhere and non individual and Sophia is Italian, as in Sophia Coppola or Sophia Loren. Not too bad but Sophie is common.

Emma
Emily
Sophie

They are all classic names- the age of the Queen has nothing to do with it.
I like them all- the order you have is fine.

Isabella - see under Sophie and Sophia only with Isabel

Emma - due a revival, IMO

I think Sophia is a beautiful name - the best by far. I'm not a huge fan of Elizabeth for a baby, I think it's too grown up. I think Emily is perfectly pleasant but maybe a little bland.
