Hi all,

Please could you help us narrow down our girls list...we still have a few weeks, but I'm finding it very difficult already! Honest opinions most welcome! smile

Aimee
Alyssa
Amelia
Chelsea
Emily
Emma
Erin
Imogen
Keira
Paige
Peyton
Reese

DH also said this morning that he likes Olivia, and when I mentioned Alice he said that one was nice too. So my list seems to be getting longer, not shorter!

Many thanks for any feedback! smile

I really like Erin and Alice.

I'm not a fan of american sounding names so don't like aimee, alyssa, chelsea, paige, payton or reece.

Imogen, Emma, Emily and Alice get my votes! Erin is also ok but really not keen in the others.

Bowlersarm Thu 26-Dec-13 11:49:18

Emily, Emma, Imogen, Olivia all lovely.

ToffeeJungle Thu 26-Dec-13 11:52:15

Top three - Emma,.Erin, Olivia

Worst three - Payton, Chelsea,.Paige

Not keen on Reese (boys name), the others are ok.

InfiniteJest Thu 26-Dec-13 12:29:52

Emma or Alice, I think. Both very pretty!

secretsofsanta Thu 26-Dec-13 12:32:35

Only like Imogen, Erin, alice and olivia

I like Alyssa, Erin, Imogen,Paige and Olivia.

Coconutty Thu 26-Dec-13 20:13:46

Emily is ok.

Really dislike Reese, Peyton and Chelsea. They seem a bit faddy and the kind of names thaAt don't translate well culturally between US and UK.
Meh about Imogen. I just don't like how the word sounds :p
Like the others a lot, especially Aimee, Alyssa, Emma and Erin.

BonnieWeeJeannieMcCall Thu 26-Dec-13 22:00:41

Peyton and Reese can be boys names; does that matter to you?

Aimee would face a lifetime of spelling out her name; does that matter to you?

Personally, from your list I like Imogen, Emily, Alice and Olivia best. And Aimee, spelled Amy.

IndigoTea Thu 26-Dec-13 22:06:28

Emily smile

Thants Thu 26-Dec-13 22:07:41

Reese is nice. The others are not imo

Hassled Thu 26-Dec-13 22:09:31

Alyssa, Emily, Emma and Imogen are the nicest. I like Emma lots.

tiamariaxxx Thu 26-Dec-13 22:09:43

My fave name of your list is Paige, i know its not everyones cup of tea but i really like it its my youngests middle name. I also really like Aimee.

Aimee Paige sounds really nice in my opinion

Clarabumps Thu 26-Dec-13 22:10:05

Really dislike Paige Peyton Chelsea and Reese. The rest are all nice. Alice or Imogen being the nicest.

Clarabumps Thu 26-Dec-13 22:10:43

Emma is lovely!

TheBuskersDog Thu 26-Dec-13 22:12:30

Agree with others, no to the american sounding names and Amy not Aimee. My favourite is probably Erin, also like Amelia.

PenguinsDontEatStollen Thu 26-Dec-13 22:12:53

Aimee - ok
Alyssa - not keen
Amelia - nice enough, but super popular at the moment, if that matters to you
Chelsea - not keen
Emily - Nice
Emma - Nice
Erin - Ok
Imogen - Really like
Keira - not keen
Paige - really dislike
Peyton- really dislike
Reese - really dislike, and would assume a boy.

Alice and Olivia are nice too.

Obviously all just personal taste though. There is nothing 'wrong' with any of them.

I would say that they are quite different in style though. Amelia, Imogen, Alice, etc are all quite classic, traditional names.

Names like Peyton, Reese, etc are more unusual and 'marmite'. Some people will react really strongly against them. Some will love them.

mumtoone Thu 26-Dec-13 22:13:22

My preferences are...
Imogen, Emily, Emma, Olivia, Alice

I'm really not keen on ...
Payton, Reese, Paige, Keira

AnyFuckerWillDo Thu 26-Dec-13 22:18:32

Love Emma, Classic. No way to Chelsea!!!

Puffykins Thu 26-Dec-13 22:25:31

Imogen.
Or Paige.

Nocomet Thu 26-Dec-13 22:28:58

You have my DD and name of their class 'character' in your list grin

cece Thu 26-Dec-13 22:29:56

Olivia - to go on short list
Alice - short list also
Aimee - no
Alyssa - no
Amelia - short list
Chelsea - definitely no
Emily - short list
Emma - short list
Erin - short list
Imogen - short list
Keira - no
Paige - no
Peyton - definitely no
Reese - definitely no

I always found having a short list of 3 or 4 names to choose from the best approach and then decide once baby arrives.

AmysMummy14 Thu 26-Dec-13 23:28:02

Aimee - If this was spelt properly then YES. This spelling NO.
Alyssa - NMS.
Amelia - I love Amy as a NN for this. - I love this name.
Chelsea/Paige - I find these 2 a little dated.
Emily - I love this name also.
Emma - Cute I like this.
Erin - It's ok. NMS though.
Imogen - I love this name.
Keira - I love this.
Peyton/Reese - NO.
