Rosa
Lara
Juliet
Cara
Thea
Louisa
Cleo
Elena

Finding it impossible to chose, but was the same with DS1

Thea, Juliet or Louisa

Definately NOT Lara, Cleo or Elena

Rosa or Cara are ok - but I like the other three best.

By the way - you may want to consider a namechange for yourself. There is a very well known poster called scottishmummy - and she has a very definate personality! grin

Lara and Louisa are my favourites... Thea wouldn't be good round my way as people don't pronounce their th's well....

I love the name Thea.
Of the rest, I like Juliet and Louisa.

Rosa ok, but sounds like a nn
Lara ppl might say Dr Zhivago but I like it
Juliet nice, solid
Cara lovely
Thea don't like this, sounds like a nn
Louisa very traditional, bit boring
Cleo a bit chavvy
Elena I like it but it might cause pronounciation probs

Thanks for all your feedback smile Darle whats nn?

Really liking thea but also like names that can be shortened (eg lulu for louisa) to give a bit more choice as baby grows up.

LOVE Rosa!

BubbaAndBump Sat 04-Dec-10 11:12:13

nn = nickname

how are you pronouncing Elena (is it eh-lay-na or ell-eh-na?)

Really like Thea actually, and Cleo is a bit more unusual.

Not so keen on Juliet

Do they all 'go' with your DS's name? (and have you considered middle names and therefore initials?)

Elena - one of my favourite names

It depends on the surname, really. My partner's surname begins with a 'R', which means that I can't have R-names or anything like Laura, Lara, Clara, Thea, etc. because the speaker trips over the last syllable. This isn't his surname, but for instance: LAU-ruh-RUH-kit.
