Which do you prefer? Our baby girl was born 5 days ago and we are finding it hard to make a decision. Our DD1 is called Molly.

I like Thea best

rootypig Mon 01-Apr-13 12:22:26

Thea is lovely. Alice I also like. Florence I don't (though Flo or Florrie are sweet)

reastie Mon 01-Apr-13 12:22:50

I like all of them, but ALice the most (our DD is an Alice though so I'm biased!)

rootypig Mon 01-Apr-13 12:30:59

ps congratulations!

FingersCrossedLegsNot Mon 01-Apr-13 13:32:04

All lovely but I think I prefer Thea followed very closely by Florence!

LaCucina Mon 01-Apr-13 13:35:18

Congratulations. I love Alice and think it goes really well with Molly.

The others are nice but not in the same league imo.

I think Thea goes well with Molly I love it smile congrats!

Thea is gorgeous (although the others are nice too)

If you call her Alice, she faces a lifetime of idiots saying "who the is Alice?" at her. Shame, it is a lovely name. However I would pick Thea.

Still18atheart Mon 01-Apr-13 14:11:48

All three are nice but prefer Florence or Alice

I like Alice the best and I think that also sounds best with Molly (which is the name I would've called ds had he been a girl). However they are all gorgeous. Congratulations.

Lexiesinclair Mon 01-Apr-13 20:27:49

I love all 3, but Alice is my favourite. If I had a DD2 she would be called Alice. smile

StandbyForNothing Mon 01-Apr-13 20:28:37

Congratulations. Thea is my favourite followed by Florence. Alice really isn't to my taste at all.

HappyDogRedDogToss Mon 01-Apr-13 20:31:45

I like Alice then Florence.

I don't like Thea because of the Tay-a / Thee-ah / Theay-a thing.

I like all of them. I think Alice sounds the best with Molly.

Alice! Lovely name

Florence is a bit over done at the mo. Thea is pretty but I just prefer Alice

Thea Alice or Florence?

Thea of course lol.

Alice. Not big on Thea and Florence is getting very popular.

lottiegarbanzo Tue 02-Apr-13 02:17:06

What a lovely set of names! Helpful hmm?

I'd choose Thea, though I'd probably use Theadora. I love Florence but its quite trendy now, so will date. Alice is quite timeless.

lottiegarbanzo Tue 02-Apr-13 02:18:44

Oh, unless you live in part of the SE where people pronounce th as f of course. Fee-a doesn't sound as good.

Alice, timeless.

Molly and Florence
Molly and Thea
Molly and Alice

Have championed both Alice and Florence on these boards but I think in this instance I'd go for Thea.

Congratulations thanks

birdofthenorth Tue 02-Apr-13 12:09:15

Thea for me. Like Alice a lot too though. Florence is a bit faddy at the moment, sorry (though a beautiful name in general)

Timetoask Tue 02-Apr-13 12:12:52

I love Florence, so timeless and really beautiful.
Thea is not my cup of tea.
Alice, as very nice.

LadyMaryCrawley Tue 02-Apr-13 15:33:10

Alice, definitely!

(Biased, as I have one smile

forgetmenots Tue 02-Apr-13 16:51:33

Alice is lovely with Molly smile

dollybirdy Tue 02-Apr-13 18:01:10

Thanks everyone, really appreciate all your feedback. I still haven't totally decided but I agree that Florence is a bit faddy, which is a shame as it was my grandmother's name. OH likes Thea but I'm not sure it sounds like a proper name - need to mull over it for another day. In any case, if she's Thea, she will be Thea Alice (may register her as Theodora but call her Thea), otherwise Alice Rose. Thank you smile

Alice, Molly and Alice sounds lovely.

fussychica Tue 02-Apr-13 19:13:18

Congrats - lovely names but Alice for me - timeless!

fussychica Tue 02-Apr-13 19:15:10

Alice Rose is lovely - go with it or Alice May / Mae (my fav combination)


Skullnbones Tue 02-Apr-13 19:19:32

Alice definitely. Thea is lovely but becoming very popular

smother Tue 02-Apr-13 19:54:25

Thea definitely.
