Thoughts please on the names

Callie
Alexis
Willow
Cassidy

Thank you!

I don't like Cassidy. I know a teen Cassidy and have never been able to treat her name as a normal name. Like calling her 'Bloke' or 'Stick', a weird sort of name.

I like Alexis.

I think Callie should be short for something.

I really like Willow (although prefer Willa)

I like Willow best, not a fan of the others.

HelenaJustina Wed 21-Sep-16 20:36:07

Callie if it's short for something

HelenaJustina Wed 21-Sep-16 20:36:19

Can't think what!

Marmite27 Wed 21-Sep-16 20:37:16

Short for Calliope usually

Willow is my favourite of those. Callie short for Caroline or Calista is also nice. Cassidy is too surnamey and Alexis reminds me of Dallas.

I love Cassidy if it flows well with your surname, next favourite is Willow & not keen on the other 2 at all.

Willow is gorgeous
Callie. I blow hot and cold on this name. ATM I'm cold.
I'm not thrilled about Cassidy. I like Cassie, though.
Alexis IMO is one of if not the most horrible girls names out there. Very harsh
I love Alexia though

I love Alexis and Willow. The other two not so much.

Thanks for your thoughts everyone!

Callie - as a nn (Calliope is sweet!)
Alexis - I like this, but I do see the echo of Dallas when I hear it
Willow - Buffy
Cassidy - American 1980s sound

Of those I like Calliope (nn Callie) or Alexis.

Rachcakes Thu 22-Sep-16 07:24:36

I prefer Alexa to Alexis. Actually I prefer Alexandra, shortened, but that's my style.

Willow is nice too.

Not keen on the other two.

I like Callie, have heard Callia used a couple of times recently?

Whoooodat Thu 22-Sep-16 07:37:31

I have a friend with a little Callie and I avoided saying her name for a long time as I just kept forgetting it. Other friends had a Halle, Malli, Ellie, Mari, and I would get them all mixed up.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Thu 22-Sep-16 07:39:50

My favourite is Cassidy, also like Cassia.
Willow is nice too.
Don't like Alexis, or Callie, but do like Calla.

ButterflyOfFreedom Thu 22-Sep-16 08:46:15

My order of preference:

Alexis (prefer Alexa)
Willow
Callie
Cassidy (I know a Cassia which is slightly better)

PartiallyStars Thu 22-Sep-16 08:52:17

Alexis does make me think of the Dynasty character so I see it as a hard name, but young people won't have that association.
I love Callie, short for Caroline or Calista, I like Cassidy, I am not a massive fan of Willow as a name even though I'm a Buffy fan but it is not horrible!

MotherDuckSaid Thu 22-Sep-16 20:09:03

Reading the names together immediately made me imagine a clique group of bitchy American type bully girls lol
Sorry

GoNorthDarren Thu 22-Sep-16 21:21:29

I really like Willow but none of the rest really. Willow is lovely though.

Nonameyet1 Fri 23-Sep-16 11:31:42

Not Cassidy for me.

Love Callie on its own.
Alexis - like but know boys called this.
Willow is lovely too.

chinlo Fri 23-Sep-16 11:40:04

Callie is okay. Does sound like it's short for something though.
Alexis to me is a boy's name.
Willow is great. Love this name.
Cassidy I really don't like. Sounds too American. Makes me think of Butch.

Love Callie..I am biased because DD is Celyn nn Callie (easier than trying to get my English family to learn that it's Kellin, not ceiling). Lots of compliments on it!

OvariesForgotHerPassword Fri 23-Sep-16 15:07:11

I think Callie works well on its own though tbh.
Also love Cassidy, Willow and Alexis! Willow and Alexis were both on our list for DD.

Alessia is the Italian version of alexa- might be another option!
