I think Mary is due a revival.

I like Beatrice and Imogen. Freya is lovely too but very popular around here!

I have a Tabitha, she's 20 - there's not many about. I also like Beatrice or Beartrix.

Not Freya it sounds like cheese.

Imogen-I'm biased though! Your list is very similar to what ours was and we chose Imogen.

I love Imogen. Safiya is unusual and pretty.

I strongly dislike Beatrice, although I know everyone else on here loves it.

DramaAlpaca Sun 03-Jul-16 14:41:17

From your list, Beatrice & Imogen are the most classic and unlikely to date.

Tabitha is lovely. I like all of them except safiya which reminds me of Ab Fab.

Lots of lovely names here your little girl will have a beautiful name.

So so many Imogens around, just beyond bored of it, sorry. Also sounds overly twee/catty.
Freya/ Beatrice for me- pretty and more quirky/individual.

BakingBunty Sun 03-Jul-16 21:53:14

I have a Beatrice, nn Bea. Like that it's a classic but Bea very sweet and contemporary. Also love Tabitha.

Love Freya and Imogen not keen on the others

All lovely except Safiya which I have never heard of and don't like the sound of.

Freya will date as its not as classic as the others.

I would probably go with Beatrice or Beatrix.

Our lists are really similar. Unfortunately my DH hates half of them! Haha.

Beatrice/Beatrix
Florence
Erin
Imogen
Rose
Rowan
Robin
Willow
Tabitha
Jemima
Etta

I know it's popular but DH likes normal names in his words, so think we will go with Imogen. I do love it though and think it's very pretty, even if it is popular. I have loved Florence for years, I can see myself with a little flo or florrie. X
