Rebecca
Emily
Jessica
Dh and I like traditional 'normal' names that arnt too popular and even tho Emily and Jessica are in the top 10 most popular name lists every year where we are there are hardly any ! We already have a Nathan and Abbie so I thought these names fitted

Emily is nice; Jessica is quite nice; not keen on Rebecca smile

Thank u ! I love Emily tho my cousin has a daughter called Amelia do they sound too similar?

Summ3r Mon 04-Apr-16 14:47:28

And dh likes Rebecca the most lol

DramaAlpaca Mon 04-Apr-16 14:48:15

Emily & Amelia are too similar for sisters, but for cousins they are fine IMO.

Summ3r Mon 04-Apr-16 14:50:27

Thank u ! We don't even see each other either but I was just making sure. Hubby not set on name... Yet lol

Rebecca, it's my name and you don't hear it often. I've never been known by Becky in fact I don't even answer to it. I also like Emily and know several. Not a fan of the name Jessica and that's due to the fact I was picked on at school by a girl of that name.

I think Emily and Amelia is fine smile

BoboBunnyH0p Not found of becky as a mn but like becca. Tho I don't think it needs shortened as its a beautiful name x

BoboBunnyH0p Mon 04-Apr-16 16:41:58

Summ3r I mainly go by Rebecca, very close friends call me Becca and an Aunt calls me Bex. My parents never shortend my name and my DM disliked Becky too.

Rebecca is my favourite. I also like the Rebekah spelling.

Lweji Mon 04-Apr-16 17:29:13

I like the three

daisydalrymple Mon 04-Apr-16 17:30:54

I know lots more little Jessica's and Emily's than I do Rebecca's. But they're all lovely classic names. I know a Nathan, Abigail and Jessica family!

Auto correct put those apostrophes in

Not keen sorry

mrsschu Mon 04-Apr-16 21:29:53

Rebecca and Jessica both sound very dated to me. I'm not keen on either. Personally I think Emily is nice but very, very boring. And I know a lot of them.

SpidersFromMars Mon 04-Apr-16 21:37:11

Love Emily and Rebecca, Jessica is a bit dated I think.

What about Alice?

starkers1 Mon 04-Apr-16 21:48:15

Love Jessica. Still one of the most feminine, springy, pretty without being overly twee/girly/pretentious girls names out there. Jess a lovely, friendly nn too.

Then Rebecca- though a bit "straighter" for me.
