due in a week still deliberating over names would love some opinions on the following



JiltedJohnsJulie Fri 27-May-11 13:32:44

Christina - ok but don't like Chris or Chrissie
Anita - not keen
Emily - classic but way too popular for me
Rachel - not keen, just makes me think of friends
Marianne - ok, probably my favourite from your list
Naomi - not keen again sorry.

I like Anita and Naomi.
Marianne and Emily are OK.
Really dislike Rachel and Christina.

My favourite name on your list is Rachel. This was on my list during my last pregnancy.

I don't like Christina, Anita or Marianne

Emily is a pretty name but very popular, although that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Whenever I hear Naomi all I can think of is that it's I Moan spelt backwards! Also I think it's easily mispronounced - nigh-oh-me or nay-oh-me which can probably be annoying.

Christina - love
Anita - okay
Emily - like
Rachel - like
Marianne - love
Naomi - like

I only like Emily and Marianne from your list, with a preference for Emily.

A week! How exciting for you.

Christina - I quite like it. It's coming back into fashion after a rest. Christie would be lovely. I also like Christabel.
Anita - no!!! why do I keep seeing this on people's lists. It's so down trodden sounding.
Emily - Lovely but too many out there.
Rachel - beautiful
Marianne beautiful
Naomi lovely

I would go for Rachel or Marianne, but I also really like Naomi.

Anita is the only one that makes me say meh.

Marianne is a lovely name I think.

I suggest several of these a lot on babynames


Love all those

Rachel is nice too

squeak2392 Fri 27-May-11 19:27:55

Christina, Rachel or Marianne.

Rachel is a great under used name
Naomi and Emily very common here
Marianne, Christina are all a bit "my mum's name" from my generation (1970's baby)

Speaking as a 'Rachel', I think my parents did really well actually, as I'm 32 and it's a name I still like, it never became incredibly popular, so I never felt like my name was very common, but not unheard of either. I think it's quite original today, as I've not heard of any other babies being called Rachel recently.

Only like Emily out of your choice of names

Marianne is gorgeous.

Adore Emily, its popular for a reason. Great name.

BabesandJugs Sat 28-May-11 10:57:06

Emily is a timeless classic name - although some people say it's very popular, and it may be in some areas it certainly isn't around where i am. Em, Emz, Emmy for short are of the general nn's?

I love Christina - nn's though are usually Chrissie, Chris, Tina - but Christie is fab!

Marianne - not sure

Rachel is fine too (although will most probably get Rach for short - which is a shame!)

Naomi - depends on the way it's pronounced - my cousin is Naomi (nay-oh-me) and she's never met another one!

I know a Marianna (pretty version of Marianne) and she is known as Mari.
Just a suggestion... smile
