Jemima
Tabitha
Martha
Eliza
Lydia

These are the ones I love. All of them! What do you think?

chinlo Thu 22-Sep-16 14:23:54

I like Eliza.

The rest, not so much. Lydia is okay I guess.

Exactly what chinlo said!

I like Eliza and Martha (my DD's name is similar to this) IMO the others are a bit "horsey" Sorry

BadToTheBone Thu 22-Sep-16 14:28:01

Eliza is lovely, Martha or Lydia at a push, no to the others!

rainbowstardrops Thu 22-Sep-16 14:30:39

I like Eliza. Not so keen on the others I'm afraid.

TheLongRains Thu 22-Sep-16 14:34:02

I love Tabitha, Martha and Lydia, but all of them are nice names smile

I like Eliza, Lydia and Martha best. And Jemima least.

LemonBreeland Thu 22-Sep-16 14:37:22

I love Jemima, Tabitha and Lydia. Have considered all three in the past for my DC.

I really like all of them! We must have similar taste op.

Favourites are Martha and Jemima. Least favourite is Tabitha.

CakeRattleandRoll Thu 22-Sep-16 14:43:33

Love Tabitha. And really like Martha.

Sootica Thu 22-Sep-16 14:43:43

I'm not keen on Martha or Eliza but they are Ok. Edwardian housemaid names!

I like Tabitha and Jemima

Lydia is my very favourite

HandmaidsTail Thu 22-Sep-16 14:44:15

Eliza! Not mad keen on the others.

GoofyTheHero Thu 22-Sep-16 14:47:24

I like them all except Martha.

panad317 Thu 22-Sep-16 14:49:26

Like Martha and Lydia

TroysMammy Thu 22-Sep-16 14:53:08

I don't like Martha or Eliza. I like Tabitha, Jemima and Lydia in that order.

skyyequake Thu 22-Sep-16 15:46:36

Tabitha always sounds like a cats name to me (DM wanted to call me Tabitha but DF refused as he's had a cat with that name! --must thank him for that one day--)

My DSis is a Jemima so I'm biased towards that name grin

I like Eliza and Lydia.

Martha is average.

butteriesplease Thu 22-Sep-16 15:48:07

Jemima Puddleduck. Tabitha Twitchett. did you not read Beatrix Potter?!

I like Martha and Lydia. Lydia is a lovely name.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Thu 22-Sep-16 17:26:58

I only like Eliza.

Jojo13 Thu 22-Sep-16 20:47:20

I love Jemima and the only thing holding me back is I don't like Jem and I bet that would be the most used nn?!
But we do have similar tastes, I also considered Martha and Eliza. Not sure on Tabitha and Lydia is pretty.

Bountybarsyuk Thu 22-Sep-16 20:49:35

I am so old, I think of Jemima from PlaySchool, I just don't think it's a pretty name.

Out of all of these, I would pick Tabitha myself.

Martha- I know one, it's not for me, tbh.

Purplebluebird Thu 22-Sep-16 20:56:31

I really like Lydia, but none of the others I'm afraid!

WhiteHairReally Thu 22-Sep-16 20:59:38

Jemima - rag doll, Puddleduck,
Tabitha - cat/kitten
Martha - the moaner in 'Martha and Mary' story in the Bible.
Eliza - sly
Lydia - Chlymydia

I'm really sorry, they are all actually lovely names but you did ask. I have known girls with all these names and they were all jolly pleasant people.

I don't like Alice either because it rhymes with malice, although I know it's a very nice name and once again I've known nice ones ( although not the horrid Alice at school who challenged me to a fight! But I digress....

SoftBlocks Thu 22-Sep-16 21:04:41

Tabitha is the nicest, I knew a very cool one once and I never think of it as a cat's name.
Don't like the others, I'm afraid, especially Martha.
