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


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 only like emily, emma, keira and alice from your list. These are all great names.

Vikkijayne2507 Sun 12-Jan-14 23:27:55

imagon Emma are my faves on your list

MummyBeerest Sun 12-Jan-14 23:02:41

Imogen, Alice, Amelia are my picks!

Vijac Sun 12-Jan-14 22:54:15

Amelia, Emma and Imogen are my favourites. Plus Amy, if spelt the regular way. Also like Olivia. Chelsea is awful, as is Paige IMO.

Sammie101 Sun 12-Jan-14 22:47:05

Alice, Imogen, emily or Emma. Not really keen on any of the others tbh

Love Erin! But very biased as just sitting with my beautiful 6 month Erin in my arms at the moment...

DuchessofKirkcaldy Sun 12-Jan-14 10:22:28

I like Erin and Alice best. Imogen is ok.
not keen on Aimee but like Amy.

miffybun73 Sun 12-Jan-14 10:20:08

I really like Emily, Emma, Alice and Olivia. Emily is my favourite (DD's name)

Erin, Amelia and Imogen are quite nice too.

I'm really not keen on:


Britishseamonkey Sun 12-Jan-14 09:54:00

Amelia Olivia and Emily all very popular names at the moment. Doesn't have to be a bad thing per say but might help to rule them out when your list is so long. Erin also gaining popularity

From you list I like Aimée ( of you use it please use the accent!!! Its s french n'aime so do it the french Way lol!) doesn't sound americam to me - amie is American IMO

Also like Emma and Keira

Don't like Payton or Reece at all sorry

Imogen nice but don't like the nns Imo or Immy

I love the name Olivia. If a friend hadn't recently used this name for her little girl I would have used it for ours. It's so beautiful.

Good luck deciding. It's such a big decision isn't it! x

twinklestar2 Sat 11-Jan-14 12:42:44

I like Alyssa and then Erin.

What about Alicia?

HyvaPaiva Sat 11-Jan-14 12:36:24

Erin is beautiful

Lainybug23 Sat 11-Jan-14 12:32:58

Thank you for all the feedback smile it is really appreciated! Will have to give this a lot more thought!

Tibby2 Sun 29-Dec-13 21:03:36

Emily or olivia

Best piece of advice I ever heard when naming girls was to pick a name that suits both a small girl and the woman that girl could grow up to be. Anything too cutesy will sound really silly on a 21 year old trying to be taken seriously in a professional career. Not keen on Aimee/Amy for that reason - a bit of a 'young' name, doesn't sit so well on an adult.

Also not keen on Peyton/Reese - sound a bit naff. (Sorry)

Hate Chelsea (but this is because I used to be a teacher and one of the vilest classroom bullies I ever taught was a Chelsea - has really negative associations for me.)

Alice is lovely - really pretty and classy
Emma and Olivia also nice.

Reese reminds me of the Reeses peanut butter cups

brokenhearted55a Fri 27-Dec-13 18:09:00

Imogen Alice is a nice name.

Peyton is the worst.

Aimee - Not keen.
Alyssa - Like it.
Amelia - Not my style.
Chelsea - Not overly keen.
Paige - It's ok. .
Emily - Don't like it very much.
Emma - Cute.
Erin - Love this one! It's pretty
Imogen - Love it! Wish OH agreed with me on this one grin
Keira - It's ok. Doesn't jump out at me.
Peyton - It's quite nice. I like American names though.
Reese - I actually quite like it but you'd always get "witherspoon?" questions.

JuniorMint Fri 27-Dec-13 10:13:53

Erin and Alice are top of my short list!

NadiaWadia Fri 27-Dec-13 05:17:04

Emily and Imogen are lovely.

Reese is awful - for a girl.

TheZeeTeam Fri 27-Dec-13 03:39:28

Btw, re spelling. Isn't Peyton the masculine spelling? Peyton Manning?!

TheZeeTeam Fri 27-Dec-13 03:36:50

Payton is very unpopular on here. That said, the 17 yo Payton I know is literally the coolest, funniest and kindest girl I've ever met. She is a friend of Ds1 and rocks her name.

So, I choose Payton!

I love Emma and Alice. Top of my girls' names list =)
