Ok I've never posted on this board before, so here goes. These are the 3 names me and dh are considering for dd2 and I'd like to know which one everyone likes best.

We'd likely shorten Abigail to Abby from the get go as we both prefer Abby but want to give out DD the option of the longform. I'm not sure about Phoebe but my dh loves this name, he wanted it for our first!

They are all nice names, but I like Alice the best, it's beautiful.

I like Abigail and Alice, but not keen on Phoebe.

Love Alice, like phoebe, not keen on Abigail.

Maybe also consider Anna, Annabelle, Jessica, Victoria.

I have a 26 year old sister called Phoebe - mum would never have chosen it now because of the popularity, but I think it is gorgeous.

Love Phoebe. Alice next, then Abigail.

Adore Alice. Timeless.

Alice! Love it.
Have an irrational hatred of Phoebe.

Hmm. Thanks all. Am leaning towards Alice I think plus it goes well with our surname and dd's name.

Love Alice! Not so keen on the others.

Abigail, with Alice as the middle name.

I'm biased towards Abigail wink

Then Alice.

CoodleMoodle Tue 30-Jun-15 20:36:45

Alice, but I'm biased as it's DD's middle name smile

Not keen on Abigail, like the other 2 particularly Alice.

Abigail and Phoebe are ok.

Alice is 'A Lice' I can't get over this so really dislike it.

But the singular of "lice" is "louse", and the " i" is soft in Alice and hard in Lice.

Don't get me wrong I LOVE Alice but is it just a NI thing to hear the "unofficial" additional Smokie lyric........"Alice? Who the f**k is Alice?"

Abigail is fabulous, was out top runner but we had a DS.

Not keen on Alice.

Phoebe is okay.

Mehitabel6 Fri 03-Jul-15 05:12:53

All lovely.
Abigail and Alice joint first and Phoebe third.

BikeRunSki Fri 03-Jul-15 08:01:12

I'm called Alice. The "WTF is Alice...." Lyrics are mildly annoying and come up very infrequently.
