This is interesting already actually, because when I see people mention certain names I am more pleased than when I see others, and I didn't realise before that the first set were my favourites!
If that makes sense.

Oops, autocorrect at work there, MARNIE of course.

I like Katie and Harriet.

Not keen on any of the others.

EIizaDay Wed 28-Nov-12 13:48:01

Why would you ever think of calling a baby, Dorothy? Are you bonkers?

messtins Wed 28-Nov-12 13:48:49

Seren, Katie, Cerys/Carys, Clara.

I like Miriam but it means "bitter" and for that reason is struck off my list of potential DD names (not that I have a DD...)

Alisvolatpropiis Wed 28-Nov-12 13:48:53

Seren
Cerys
Hayley
Nina
Clara

One of the above is my name and therefore lovely grin
