Erin is lovely

Harriet and I don't think Hattie is inevitable! The others are nice too. Congrats on your new dd

Erin. Definately,beautiful name

Love all of them. My dd is 5 months and called Edie and alot of people comment on how her name has grown on them and how pretty it is x

Harriet could be Etta as a nickname?

I like the others too. Congratulations!

Edie is my favorite on your list
I think it's lovely

Harriet or Isobel. Mia feels a bit played out to me. It was very popular round here in the early 00s. One of my oldest (primary school) friends is named Harriet and nn was never Hattie.

P.S. congratulations!

I like Erin best.

Erin is lovely
I prefer Isabella .
Mia is a nice name but so popular now so I would pick it. I know a few Mias and Mayas or Mya.
Harriet is terrible - sorry.

I like Mia and Edie (although I'd give an Edie a 'proper' name on birth cert e.g. Edith, Edwina)

I dont like Erin. Its one of those cod Irish names that annoys me.

Isobel is nice, but everywhere.

Wishfulmakeupping Mon 12-May-14 18:14:21

Like Harriet the best with Edie a close second if it short for Edith

I don't think that spelling (think it's Scottish) is the most popular spelling and it's my favourite. I would go with Isobel I agree about the cod Irish comment of Erin too. Go for the Scottish spelling of Isobel especially if it's not that popular round your way x

You ask about popularity in Scotland.
Here is link to 2013 top 100 Scottish girls names:
www.gro-scotland.gov.uk/files2/stats/popular-forenames/2013/babiesnames-2013-t2.pdf

Mia = no 17; Erin = no 18; Jessica = no 7

Harriet, Edie and Isobel are not in Scottish top 100 but Isabella = no 42

Thanks everyone, see settled on Isobel, Izzy.

Allalonenow Mon 12-May-14 18:55:46

Jessica or Edith

funnyoldonion Mon 12-May-14 20:00:32

Awwww congrats on Isobel, gorgeous name nearly named my little one Violet Isobel x

What about nn Hettie rather than Hatty?

I love Mia from your list too. Erin is lovely very strong. Isobel/Izzy just personally not a fan of, but I know lots of people love it. Don't worry about taking your time to name her - I always take the full 6 weeks!!! You have to be sure and there's so much getting to know her to be done! Enjoy x
