I strongly felt first DC was a boy and was right and strongly feel this one is a girl.
So we have narrowed down the girls names to the following:
Susie
Leila
Louisa
Charlotte

What peoples thoughts and/or preferences?

Love Susie but with Susannah as a full name. Also love Leila but have an old friend of that name so it's out for me. The others are a tad dull. Sorry

SirBoobAlot Sun 21-Nov-10 20:05:49

Louisa or Charlotte from your list.

Leila just makes me think "and Stitch", and Susie isn't a full name.

Louisa is my favourite, followed by Charlotte. I don't much like Leila, and I'm not too sure about Susie.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 21-Nov-10 20:11:28

Louisa then Susie if it's a nn for Susannah.

I like Louisa a lot.
Charlotte a close second.

Leila much further behind in third position.

Susie failing to make the finishing line.

I like Louisa best, then Charlotte and Susie (if nn for Susan or Susannah).

1 - Susie
2 - Louisa (but only if pn with a soft 's' and not Louiza
3 - Charlotte (love nn's Charlie and Lottie)
4 - Leila

Louisa then Charlotte, have always loved both. Don't like Susie or Leila.

weegiemum Sun 21-Nov-10 20:37:19

I like Susie, as nn for Susan.

But its my name lol!

Bue Sun 21-Nov-10 20:46:04

Definitely Louisa!

NadiaWadia Sun 21-Nov-10 20:54:31

Susie is adorable - as a nickname. Susanna(h) absolutely beautiful as the full name. You can't have a high court judge called Susie!

You other choices are all nice too, although prefer Louise or Luisa to Louisa.

MerryMarigold Sun 21-Nov-10 20:56:56

Charlotte or Leila. My Mum is Leila and I like it, ver pretty. Nice names. Louisa bit old I think...

FanjolinaJolie Sun 21-Nov-10 20:59:24

Louisa

Leila and spelt that way not the Eric clapton way Dd name so might be tad biased wink

occasionally gets shortned to Lei

Dolittlest Sun 21-Nov-10 21:18:29

All nice names. Susannah with Susie as a nn would be lovely.

johnnycomelurky Sun 21-Nov-10 21:38:02

I like Leila and Louisa best.

piscesmoon Sun 21-Nov-10 21:55:40

1.Louisa
2.Susie -but only if short for Susannah
3. Charlotte

Don't like Leila

Hedwig3 Mon 22-Nov-10 10:47:34

Leila wins easily for me.

smother Mon 22-Nov-10 11:47:15

Susie - love, but if a nn for Susannah
Leila - can't get excited about this name (layla, lily, lila.. all merge into one in my mind)
Louisa - my favourite. a great underused classic, beautiful, with lovely nns too (Louie, Loulou etc)
Charlotte - for some irrational reason, this is one of my least favourite girls names.

frakkinup Mon 22-Nov-10 11:53:30

Louisa is my favourite I think.

Susie would be fine as a nn for Suzanne, Susannah etc but not as a full name. I agree with the judge comment!

LilyBolero Mon 22-Nov-10 11:54:13

Leila or Louisa. Or Susannah.

ensure Mon 22-Nov-10 13:27:55

I like Susie and Louisa. But I don't think this thread will help you at all as there seems to be no consensus! Except that most people prefer Susannah to Susie. I, for one, think you could have a judge Susie; she could always be Sue.

thereisalightanditnevergoesout Mon 22-Nov-10 13:38:55

I like Louisa - but then I am biased as it's my name (even though it's a bit dull according to Rockbird wink).

Lpsmum Mon 22-Nov-10 16:13:43

Great thanks all - really appreciate your opinions.
We've decided on either Susanna or Louisa.
I'm actually amazed how quickly and easily we narrowed it down considering how long we've been procrastinating the discussion. Roll on January to meet her (or maybe him)
