I know one Victoria that's about 2, and 1 Rebecca and 1 Elizabeth but they are both a little older and go by nicknames, does that count?

I wish we had called dd Rebecca now. Such a beautiful name. It is her middle name though.

I know and Elizabeth and a Rebecca. Both lovely names with good nn too.

Oh and I know several young Elizabeths, but not a single Victoria.

I know two 8 year old Rebeccas (it has always been slightly more popular in Wales than England, although one of the ones I know is English) And one 13 year old Libby.

I don't know any babies with those names, but they are lovely names. One of them is my daughter's middle name, one is the name of one of her friends and one is the name of a controlling bully at her school.

I don't get this MN obsession with nicknames though.

I know of a toddler Elizabeth.

I know of one Rebecca who is 2. I know quite a few baby Elizabeths and my own 5 month old is Victoria. We were really torn between Elizabeth and Victoria at one point and went with Victoria because I didn't know any young Victorias whereas I know quite a few Elizabeths under 2.

I do love Elizabeth though.

I know a few Elizabeths too. Mostly go by a nickname (Lizzie, Beth). None of the other two.

I too know 2 little Elisabeths so it seems fairly common.
I only know a 5 year old Rebecca.
Love Victoria and don't know any little ones.
The best objective measure of popularity is the government ons list of the past years girls names.

I know children under the age of five with all those names but they are not especially common.

I know a few Elizabeths.

noodlebum Fri 25-Oct-13 09:18:23

I don't know any below the age of 21!

Mim78 Fri 25-Oct-13 09:25:28

I know a baby Elizabeth known as Betsie. It is a lovely name IMO.

They are all nice classy names. I know a little Charlotte too and it really stands out as a classic name and not one of the Tilly, Lilly, Milly brigade.

I know a three year old Victoria but she's Polish and I think the spelling f is different.

I know lots with Elizabeth as their middle name, usually where it was the mother's mn too.

The youngest Rebecca I know is 8.

i know 3 sisters called this, but not babies.

Victoria is a well loved family name. Several relatives young and old have the name.
