Philippa

I think they're all lovely - you have great taste!

I'd probably go for Louisa as the nicest of all.

I never cared for Philippa but the rest are beautiful

All lovely - I adore Flora but am aware that it was used as an insult towards girls when I was at school - spreads easily.
Since that ad campaign ended forever ago I don't think it will be an issue anymore.

Harriet and Louisa go nicely together smile

Elizabeth is lovely, Louisa is fine, Phillippa is okay, don't like Carlotta or Flora.

Louisa - I love it, elegant and feminine.
Elizabeth - beautiful, regal, lots of abbreviations, Liz, Lizzie, it's fun you can play around with it.
Phillippa - Pippa - pretty and girly.
Prefer Carla to Carlotta
Flora - Don't like it.

Louisa or Philippa smile

Louisa - don't like it personally
Elizabeth - It's ok but a bit stuffy perhaps, especially on a tiny.
Phillippa - I like 'Pippa'
Carlotta - Love it
Flora - Very sweet, I like it.

RugbyWidow7 Sun 12-Jun-11 19:18:15

Louisa - very pretty
Elizabeth - Classic with lovely abbreviations
Phillippa - Don't like it
Carlotta - really don't like it - sounds like a Car lot
Flora - Very sweet, but wouldn't use because of the previously mentioned connotations

Elizabeth and Louisa are my favourites, don't like the others.

WhipMeIndiana Sun 12-Jun-11 20:31:56

Flora or Carlotta all the rest are dullsville

TidyDancer Sun 12-Jun-11 20:35:00

All lovely, apart from Carlotta. I don't really like the way it looks. Prefer Charlotte.

ballstoit Sun 12-Jun-11 20:38:25

I like Louisa or Carlotta.
Flora - the spread is not going to disappear even if the ads change.
Elizabeth - I think is boring although it has a lot of shortenings/nicknames, which I like.
Philippa - I think will become popular because of the 'Middleton' factor. I don't like it.

I also like Charlotta.

superjobeespecs Sun 12-Jun-11 20:43:38

eliza would be nice i like the sound of it with your DD1s name smile

cece Sun 12-Jun-11 20:45:01

Flora spreads easily otherwise the rest are all fine.

I would choose Elizabeth from your list as it has such a good range of nn.

Hulababy Sun 12-Jun-11 21:45:00

Louisa - quite nice,
Elizabeth - classic, like Beth as nn
Flora - don' like; Florence is similar and I love that
Carlotta (Lottie) - don't like; prefer Charlotte
Philippa - not keen
