or even if you do, what when she grows up- a name is for life not just for christmas grin

Emily, Helena.

I have a very 'sweet' name, I was the least girly girl in my class at school.

hmm I'd out myself totally if I went into details, but sweet and girly isn't the first thing that comes to mind knowing several of those lists.

My DD1 has a name on this thread, it wasn't chosen to be sweet and pretty, it's a family name we liked. It's a good job really because she isn't exactly a girly type girl at all! (Although she is quite pretty grin)
If there's a tree she's up it, she detests having her hair brushed and hates pamper type parties beyond all measure.
The cute names I could think of are Chalet School/1950's boarding school book type names:

Loveday, Helena, that type of thing.

Oh yes nocomet, I know girls with the OPs suggestions that definitely don't fit in the 'sweet' bracket, along with plenty of the other names posted.

A name is just a name that's all.
You cannot give a child a name hoping it will go with their personality.Many people have given their children names thinking that that is girly feminine or whatever and the child turns out to be someone completly differant.
I know girls with cutsie names who are anything but and vice versa.
It is the same as giving a baby boy what is considered to be a manly name hoping he will be a strong red blooded fearless male and he turns out to be the opposite.

Cutesy... Anything ending in ie or hyphenated with Mae / Belle. But maybe you could go for full name and cute short?

Bear in mind that an adult woman might not what to have a name that makes people think of a sweet pretty little girly girl.

And she may be 6ft tall, 15 stone and be a farrier.

Shallishsnti your totally right!

Reason I was asking is because in my experiance the only Lucy's and Alices I know are beautiful, girly loving people!

My first DD was going to be Lucy right up until the midwife passed her to me and said what's her name and I said I don't know and ndmed her 3 days later, she got a equally pretty name and is a stunning girl is also not a girly girl at all spent the first 5 years of her life naked in only weeklies digging up the garden and clubbing trees!!!!
