Which do people prefer?

Isadora. Lilibet is pretty awful and Tatiana is too much.

Isadora then Tatiana

Isadora reminds me of Wizadora... Lillibet is the Queen's nickname. Tatiana is quite pretty but very Russian.

I prefer Isidora spelled this way

Isadora. I know a 6 year old lilibet and she's lovely, but i really don't like the name!

Isadora - very nice.

Lilibet sounds dated and I can't imagine a Judge Lilibet or a Dr Lilibet xxxx.

Tatiana always reminds me of Barry Taylor's Russian wife, in the newer version of Auf Wiedersehn, Pet, said with a very prononunced brummy accent.

Tatiana
Lilibet was what the Queen called herself when she was very little and couldn't say Elizabeth properly. Absolutely for a nickname but nit as a given name. Your baby is going to grow up into an adult.

I love Isadora, if I was having another it'd be my top girl's name.

Sorry but they're all a bit much for me. If i had to pick, then Isadora but I'd always shorten it to Izzy. Not Lillibet (babyish so wouldn't be great for an adult) and Tatiana, whilst beautiful, is very Russian so wouldn't work unless you are Russian!!

Fannyfannakerpants Sat 22-Oct-16 21:45:08

I really like Isadora but dh and I couldn't agree on a shortened version. It should be Sadie (no idea why). I like isa but really didn't want an Izzy.

RaingodswithZippos Sat 22-Oct-16 21:46:29

Shurely that's who I was thinking of too but didn't think anyone else would remember that!

calzone Sat 22-Oct-16 21:46:30

I wouldn't want to be called any of those names.

Would you?

ChittyBB Sat 22-Oct-16 21:47:15

My paternal grandparents are Russian so there is a link.

Older sister is Nina.

Isadora
The best of a bad bunch
Agree with PP that Lillibet is a mispronunciation that turned into a nickname
And tatiana is a bit meh

Shurelyshomemistake Sat 22-Oct-16 21:51:30

Raingods, I loved that programme. Tati-ooooah-nah...

TooPlain Sat 22-Oct-16 21:53:28

Well Tatiana is too close to Nina in sound. Lillibet was the Queen's childhood nickname, it's a diminutive not a name on its own right like the other two so I would rule that out as being a different type of name altogether. That leaves Isadora which is actually ok but I think Dora would go much better with your other dd's name.

Isadora is gorgeous, do use it!

Lillibet was what what the Queen called herself when a little girl who couldn't pronounce Elizabeth, so I wouldn't use it.
Tatiana is a Russian spiv's girlfriend, so I wouldn't use it.

Pluto30 Sat 22-Oct-16 22:08:21

I like Tatiana in full, but the Tatiana I knew got called Tat and Tati (prn. Tatty) for short, which is pretty awful.

Lillibet isn't a proper name. It's just a nickname for Elizabeth, essentially invented by Queen Elizabeth II.

I don't like Isadora, though I like Dora.

albertcampionscat Sat 22-Oct-16 22:19:53

Elizabeth with Lillibet as nn?

BendydickCuminsnatch Sat 22-Oct-16 22:23:26

I'd probably go for Tatiana out of the 3 - Lillibet incredibly twee and lispy, Isadora is quite dumpy and makes me think of Wizadora and will blend in to all the other Izzies out there. Tatiana is nice but quite princessy.

VivienneWestwoodsKnickers Sat 22-Oct-16 22:26:37

Lillibet is a nickname for Elizabeth.

Tatiana seems very Russian, so does that work with your situation?

Isadora is pretty, but will it be shortened to Izzy? Are you ok with that?

Cockadoodledooo Sat 22-Oct-16 22:29:25

Lillibet is a nickname imo. I think with Russian heritage I'd go for Tatiana.

FunnysInLaJardin Sat 22-Oct-16 22:30:02

I love Lillibet, tis a fab name

livinglooney8 Sat 22-Oct-16 22:30:07

Tatiana is a beautiful name. Knew one shortened to Tatty with friends.
Love Isadora too. Prefer Dora as nn as tons of Izzies here yawn.
Prefer Elizabeth to lillibet.
Unusual beautiful choices and a breath of fresh air from the usual Evies/Isabellas/Islas/ Amelias etc.
