Already have a thread going on DH's BS names..so for good measure I'm throwing in the girls too...!

Sophie
Olivia
Emily
Lucy
Emma
Erin - ERRRRRRR dislike..!
Hannah
Charlotte
Anna
Sarah - I think this might come back into fashion
Iona
Elizabeth
Alice
Alexandra

DH gave me 4 BS names..but clearly not so stuck with girls..our 2 top runners aren't on here as this list was taken from 2009/10 top 100 girls names...

What do you think???

BicNoddyHolder Thu 30-Dec-10 17:44:24

I think they're all nice...

...my favourites are Lucy, Sarah and Elizabeth.

Just saw your boys name thread.

Sarah is lovely, as is Elizabeth (DD's middle name), Anna and Emma.

I always liked Iona until DH pointed out 'I own her' and it's never been the same since.

What are your top 2? <nosey>

JiltedJohnsJulie Thu 30-Dec-10 18:55:51

My favourites are probably Hannah, Alice, Lucy, Elizabeth, Alexandra and Sarah.

Don't like Iona for the same reason as NineLadies.

Which ones do you like best Highlandgirl?

And would love to know your top 2 too smile

Sophie -- nice if a bit meh
Olivia -- lovely; uber popular but easy to see why imo
Emily -- meh. I know so many of them all aged about 16-18
Lucy -- lovely, classic
Emma -- lovely, classic
Erin -- really dislike this one too smile
Hannah -- same as Emily where I live
Charlotte -- lovely, classic
Anna -- lovely, classic, never met an Anna I didn't like
Sarah -- classic and lovely
Iona -- fab
Elizabeth -- classic
Alice -- my favourite of your list
Alexandra -- lovely

I'd choose Alice or Iona but I'd consider Lucy, Emma and Anna too. Some really nice names here.

I like Emily, Emma, Charlotte, Elizabeth and Alice a lot. Not fond of Iona and hate Alexandra.

tummytickler Thu 30-Dec-10 19:12:18

I only like Elizabeth (love Bess for a nn) and Alice. Love Anne, but not Anna so much. Lucy is ok.

cece Thu 30-Dec-10 19:15:30

I think they are all good but would have either Anna or Sarah at the top of the list. Not so keen on Iona or Lucy, so they would be at the bottom.

Lonnie Thu 30-Dec-10 20:53:52

Ive always moved Iona it was one of our girls names for ds (and Ilona) by far my favourite

Highlandgirl Thu 30-Dec-10 23:58:21

I like quite a number of them....which is a surprise!

Sophie - Sounds brilliant with our surname - but it's just so 'well used' classic no the less.
Olivia - Not so keen.
Emily - Again don't dislike, but not doing it for me.
Lucy - No
Emma - Like, but hated a girl at school called Emma total bitch..need to get over it..!
Erin - ERRRRRRR dislike..!
Hannah - If DH was a girl he would of been Hannah..quite like.
Charlotte - LOVE.
Anna - My god daughter's name...booooo!
Sarah - I think this might come back into fashion, really like it.
Iona - I'm Scottish...need I say moregrin
Elizabeth - Love for the NN's
Alice - LOVE
Alexandra - Like but maybe as a middle name...

For those of you being nosey.... grin Top of the list is....Honor and Beatrice / Beatrix nn Bibi.

sad sadQuite sad as Beatrice / x has become so popular within the last year or so, I've always loved it..!

cece Fri 31-Dec-10 00:01:57

Honor is fab! Definitely goes straight to the top of the list. LOve it.

Highlandgirl Fri 31-Dec-10 00:07:49

Plonker Fri 31-Dec-10 00:12:25

What lovely names!

My favourites from your list are Lucy, Elizabeth and Sarah

The only one that I don't like is Iona.

Highlandgirl Fri 31-Dec-10 15:31:13

I think Sarah might make a come back...the only Sarah's I know are my age..!

Eglu Fri 31-Dec-10 15:33:22

Beatrix is lovely.

Highlandgirl Fri 31-Dec-10 15:34:50

Eglu on the rise maybe....?????

My gran was a Beatrice. Known as BB because those were her initials She hated it, however, which clouds it for me so I used her middle name as one of DDs instead.

Everything on your list is fine.

minipie Fri 31-Dec-10 15:48:41

Of your options, I like

Honor
Emma
Sara (not Sarah)
Erin
Iona
Elizabeth

BarbieLovesKen Fri 31-Dec-10 17:14:35

All lovely but very very popular these days.

Honor is absolutely stunning.

Sorry, I think Beatice is a really awful name, actually it was one of those "ridiculous" names we used to giggle about as kids. Its just very ugly imo.

APixieInMyMulledWine Fri 31-Dec-10 18:51:42

How strange that I'm the only one that like's Erin

I'm not keen on the rest. All a bit, ermmm, Plain, for me.

Sorry I should have said that they're all perfectly nice names, just not anything I would choose.

I'm pretty sure my choice of girls names wouldn't go down to well on here so I'm not the right person to reply really. Lol.

jacksgrannie Fri 31-Dec-10 19:02:03

All beautiful (save perhaps Erin and Iona - not keen on place names; reminds me of Brooklyn!)

Olivia and Elizabeth are absolutely gorgeous.
