What do you reckon? Which is nicer? Or could Harriet Verity be a possibility...

ProlificWillyBreeder Wed 13-Feb-13 16:10:21

Harriet, I just don't like Verity sorry and I know a stunning and annoyingly clever Harriet.

ProlificWillyBreeder Wed 13-Feb-13 16:10:41

Only annoying as I wish I was that clever!

Ooh i'm thinking Harriet Verity just need to drug my husband first

WhichIsBest Wed 13-Feb-13 17:39:43

I prefer Harriet.

I don't like Harriet Verity. It's too 'arri erri'.
Now I have shown myself to be a bit weird there you can safely ignore me.

Both lovely.

Harriet

Allalonenow Thu 14-Feb-13 20:02:48

Verity without a doubt.

MrsWeasley Thu 14-Feb-13 20:06:38

Harriet is a beautiful name

moonblues Thu 14-Feb-13 20:13:51

Harriet & you could have Harry or Hal as a nickname

Mehrida Thu 14-Feb-13 20:16:27

My Grandma was Harriet so I'm biased! SHe was Harty to everyone she knew tho.

Harriet smile

My first dolly was called Harriet. So Harriet.

I do like verity but names like that (faith, hope etc) are potentially setting a child up to fail. What if verity is a compulsive liar?

Emilythornesbff Thu 14-Feb-13 20:25:42

Both lovely.
Harriet wins for me I think but lends on surname.

Verity, I know two Harriet's I dislike and one lovely Verity though, so I'm biased.

I think Harriet Verity is sweet...

MIL is Harriet and hates it! She goes by her mn. I like it and would consider using it for a DD much to MIL chargrin

Another vote for Harriet. Verity is a nice name but Harriet pips it.

Umlauf Fri 15-Feb-13 09:06:18

My first doll was also a Harriet! Lovely, clever name. Could be Harrie/Hattie as nn.

Mylittlepuds Fri 15-Feb-13 10:05:38

Yay well I think it's decided by popular vote! Harriet. Phew. Thought Verity was going to confuse everything! Thanks everyone.

Mylittlepuds Fri 15-Feb-13 10:06:05

Oh course it could always be another DS...

Mehrida Fri 15-Feb-13 23:11:35

Go Harty! (Or Harry...)

EnjoyResponsibly Fri 15-Feb-13 23:16:45

Verity.

Harriet is a wank name.

Sorry it you're called Harriet

EnjoyResponsibly Fri 15-Feb-13 23:17:10

Oops blush

GW297 Fri 15-Feb-13 23:42:28

Harriet

Pimmsbear Sat 16-Feb-13 06:59:01

Definitely Harriet, though I may be biased! Ours appears to be a little strong willed though, as does another I met recently.

Mylittlepuds Sat 16-Feb-13 08:58:39

Pfft at Harriet is a wank name. Hmm I think a few of my family would agree with you there. Harriet it is though. And maybe Harriet Verity. I don't know why but really like it.

MadBusLady Sat 16-Feb-13 09:51:30

Love Harriet. And Harriet Verity is fine, as long as your surname isn't Harris or Ferrers ir something!

kelda Sat 16-Feb-13 09:55:56

Both pretty names.

Startail Sat 16-Feb-13 10:10:17

The Harriet I know is a real little live wire,
Verity sounds a bit quieter and more serious,

Both are lovely.

Harriet Verity is lovely as long as you don't mind always being reminded of the name you decided not to go with.

DD2's second name would have been my first choice and somedays I'd love to swap it round.

GW297 Sat 16-Feb-13 12:05:37

Harriet Verity is lovely!

NorbertDentressangle Sat 16-Feb-13 12:13:28

Verity.

Not keen on Harriet I'm afraid. Probably to do with one that I know.

Stixswhichtwizzle Sat 16-Feb-13 21:28:20

Harriet.

Verity. I don't know any. I know one Harriet and her mum is very annoying and aspirational. Tres off putting.

highlystrung Mon 18-Feb-13 12:31:16

Verity - lovely name!

takethatlady Mon 18-Feb-13 12:45:08

Harriet. Very pretty. I don't really like names that are also words (Faith/Hope/Charity/Verity or, god forbid, Chastity) - I sort of find them a bit imposing. Don't think Verity is as pretty as Harriet, and doesn't have the nickname options (Harry/Hatty/Hetty, etc).

But both are perfectly good names. Go with your gut smile

aufaniae Mon 18-Feb-13 16:10:16

Verity!

everlong Mon 18-Feb-13 16:13:31

Harriet.
My favourite girls name.

Harriet most definitely.
