What do you think?

Surname is long, begins with K.

Will Kate be to common this year?

I like Lucy and Eleanor. Also like Sarah and Jane but would choose one or the other.

Kate is OK, but I think it will be very popular and I'd use a longer name as full name.

Eleanor or Sarah, not Sarah-Jane thoughsmile

Sarah. Without the Jane.

Tuggy Fri 10-Jun-11 21:49:45

Kate, Lucy or Eleanor.

Not Sarah-Jane

Eleanor is lovely! Relatively unusual, but classic, beautiful and strong.

Kate - is a nickname, and will be v common
Sarah-Jane - American
Lucy - Boring
Eleanor - Lovely, lovely, lovely, I would want it for Bump if I didn't already have a niece called Eleanor.

What about Lucy-Jane?

Sarah is lovely.

All fantastic names - but definitely Sarah OR Jane.

Lucy I think but I like them all.

Disagree that Eleanor is unusual though. There are an average of 2-3 Eleanors per year where I work (15-20 girls per year) (mainly shortened to Ellies though so I guess the longer version is more unusual)

Sarah Jane is lovely, but don't hyphenate.

Eleanor is my favourite.
Kate next.
Lucy next-but very common at the moment.
Sarah -Jane my least fave as a bit too twee for me. Ok for a child but doesn't suit an adult.

randomimposter Sun 12-Jun-11 14:34:16

Eleanor my favourite, then Cate.
Not keen on the others, sorry.

sarahloula Sun 12-Jun-11 16:42:20

Eleanor is a lovely name, my favourite by far.

TantePiste Sun 12-Jun-11 16:47:03

I love, love, love Eleanor. My dh vetoed it for dd. sigh.

fedupofnamechanging Sun 12-Jun-11 18:30:53

There are millions of Eleanor's at the moment, so I'd avoid that one. It's a bit ordinary imo.
I quite like Lucy, but again there are a lot of girls with that name, so it depends on whether you mind having a name which is very popular.
I am a 37 year old Sarah (like all the other girls born in the '70's grin). Although there are a lot of us in our 30's, it is an unusual name for a child and I do like it very much.
I also think that Kate is lovely and this was on my shortlist.

All these names are used across all classes and don't date so they are all good choices.

fedupofnamechanging Sun 12-Jun-11 18:34:20

Meant to say that as a Sarah, please don't use either Jane or Louise as a middle name. Your daughter won't thank you for it as it is sooo boring, rather like using May, Grace or Rose as a middle name is today. Each is a lovely name on its own, but has been over used in recent years.

I've probably offended loads of people now. Sorry

Eleanor or Lucy

These are actually lovely together, Eleanor Lucy or Lucy Eleanor

MerryMarigold Sun 12-Jun-11 19:30:59

I don't know ANY Eleanors, except me! (and I am late 30's). Quite a few Ella's though.

Eleanor and Lucy are my favourites but dislike the nn Ellie.
