Annabel. Met a cute little 3 year old on holiday called that. Although I prefer Annabelle.

Love Eliza and Eloise the most.. probably wouldn't go for Ottilie but go for what you love yourself!

Nice shortlist. I like Annabel best (spelt that way), than Matilda, the Ottilie, the Elodie. Not keen on Jemima or Eloise. Indifferent to Eliza.

Jemima. Beautiful, timeless and very under used (or is it underused? My brain is shocking these days) blush

Lebkuchenlover Sun 26-May-13 21:32:16

Love Jemima and Ottilie!

Eliza or Elodie
(But all your choices are nice)

Love them all apart from Elodie and Eloise.

What about Harriet and Martha?

WilmaFingerdoo Sun 26-May-13 21:36:22

Annabel but then I have one so am biased.

Also like Jemima.

Ottilie. Thats an odd one. Sounds like a place name.

Eliza and Jemima - they are all nice but Annabel works better as a middle name whereas none of the others do

Elodie for me smile

Theselittlelightsofmine Sun 26-May-13 21:58:54

Eloise grin

Stupid phone changed it but you can guess which other name I like grin

PaperSeagull Sun 26-May-13 22:02:06

Love Eliza and Matilda.

I could never use Jemima because of the Aunt Jemima associations, but I imagine people in the UK generally don't have these associations.

Happymum22 Sun 26-May-13 22:02:36

Eliza - Don't like
Matilda - Love, popular at the moment if that bothers you
Eloise - OK
Annabel - OK
Jemima - Quite like, knew a Jemima at school and she was a huge teachers pet/goody goody from a very strict family (which puts me off it!!) but without that association, I do like it a lot.
Elodie - Quite like, bit different in a good way
Ottilie - OK

Eliza or Eloise

Whatalotofpiffle Sun 26-May-13 22:13:07

Matilda

GW297 Sun 26-May-13 22:32:12

All nice but especially Eloise and Elodie.

orderinformation Mon 27-May-13 03:51:51

All lovely. Matilda my least favourite.

Love Annabel. Was on my shortlist but had a boy.

I know a young Eloise. Is lovely.

HazleNutt Tue 28-May-13 10:20:38

Eloise or Elodie

Cheerymum Tue 28-May-13 10:22:40

All nice. Can't stop thinking Ottilie Bottilie but that's just me being childish. Annabel is my favourite x

MortifiedAdams Tue 28-May-13 10:28:11

Jemima or Matilda

OrangeFireandGoldashes Fri 31-May-13 07:29:29

Eliza, but I'm biased as it's a family name. Matilda and Jemima also pretty. Eloise is okay, not so keen on the others.

HystericalParoxysm Fri 31-May-13 08:26:18

Love Eliza, and Annabel. Did like Matilda but there are 4 in DS's nursery (out of 30!) so for me it's too popular now.

elsabel Fri 31-May-13 08:39:17

Eliza and Matilda win hands down for me

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 31-May-13 08:40:18

Annabel or Eliza both lovely

Elquota Fri 31-May-13 20:42:52

Annabel or Elodie, by far.

MrsEllsmore Fri 31-May-13 20:46:23

Eliza for me, very pretty and very classy. Does no one else just think of Jemima Puddle Duck from Beatrix Potter?

LemonBreeland Fri 31-May-13 21:00:11

I love Matilda, Annabel and Jemima. We used Annabel as a mn, DH completely vetoed Jemima sad , and Matilda was on our list.

Not so keen on the others.
