Would love your opinions on these names please. Surname begins with "F" if that makes any difference.

I think I am leaning towards Eve, but I am so indecisive!

Thanks for your help smile

Alice every time - love it!

But like the other two names too.

The other two aren't bad, but have become too faddy. Eve would almost certainly be shortened to Evie <shudders>

Alice is lovely, timeless and elegant.

woohoo I love Alice, but DH not sure, will show him this thread!

More opinions greatly appreciated!

I love Eve, it would be on my list but my surname begins with a V so it would sound like we called her Ee grin I don't like the nn Evie though.

Alice is lovely too, it's a classic that won't date.

Not keen on Amelia, there are thousands where I live. Very 'now'.

I love the name Alice but the 3 babies I have known born in the last year are all called Alice.

Love Alice
Like Amelia
Dislike Eve

I like all 3 but Alice is my favourite

Amelia is my favourite of your list, then Eve. However if your surname begins with F I wouldn't go for Eve as the two names would run together. Not keen on Alice.

I think Alice will date less than the other two. Having said that they are all lovely names and I much prefer Eve than Evie as a full name.

I have an Alice (2) so obviously love the name. I think Amelia and Eve are alos lovely but definitley a little more 'faddy' and less timeless

Deffo Alice, tis beautiful!

NannyState Mon 10-Jan-11 16:44:45

I love Eve, but there are Evies everywhere. Does that bother you?

Alice is lovely.

Deciduousblonde Mon 10-Jan-11 16:45:27

I have both an Evie (15) and am expecting an Amelia, so I will be biased grin

Evie wasn't popular when I named my teenager and everyone thought it was wonderfully unusual at the time..see what I mean, it bites you on the ass!

Alice is lovely too, and was on my shortlist when I had my other daughter. Sorry, I'm not helping much am I?!

suzym1984 Mon 10-Jan-11 16:48:47

Thanks everyone, you are being very helpful smile

It does bother me slightly that Evie is becoming so popular, altho we would call the baby Eve.

Alice is quite unusual around here (I am a teacher and have never encountered an Alice) which it more appealing!

Like all the names, Eve is possibly my favourite, then Alice, and finally Amelia.

All lovely names though

flopsy1974 Mon 10-Jan-11 17:24:48

Definately Alice.

Alice, not amny around unlike Eve which seems very opoular at the moment.

pinkgirlythoughts Mon 10-Jan-11 19:23:08

I have Eve/Ava and Amelia on my list, and also a LN that starts with F. I've been hesitant about Eve because with our surname it sounds like the two names run together, as if I'm just saying E. Lastname instead of Eve Lastname. That might depend somewhat on accent though.

I know of a baby Amelia, which again makes me a bit more hesitant about using it, knowing that it will be popular! It's lovely, though!

JojoMags Mon 10-Jan-11 20:42:15

Alice, Eve, Amelia, in that orde, with Amelia some way behind!

Mousesmummy Mon 10-Jan-11 20:47:52

Alice without a doubt!!!
Eve is nice as is Amelia but Alice is just gorgeous!!!

smother Mon 10-Jan-11 23:33:00

Alice - no contest
