Baby due in 2 months and I know it's a girl. What do you think of these and which will 'age' best?
Elizabeth (Betty or Eliza). Really not keen on the nickname Liz though and dh wants the full name. Olive Clara Florence - a family name that I always intended to use as a first/middle name. Heard it's overpopular now though so I'm confused. Should I stick with it? Ivy Lucille
Elizabeth is a classic and very versatile - Beth, Buffy, Betty, Lizzie etc Olive & Clara a bit more unusual. Seem a bit more mature. I love Ivy and Lucille. Florence is nice, but it's also a boys name.
I think that Ivy and Florance will age and possibly Clara. They are lovely names though not so keen on Lucille and prefer Lucy. Also find Olive a bit too old fashioned and I think people will confuse it with Olivia. Other classic girls names
Rachel Charlotte Constance Alice Mary Catherine Louise(a) Emily
There are children at DD's nursery called Florence and Ivy, but I think the rest are less popular. I think Elizabeth is classic and will age well, as isn't over popular. I love the names Olive and Clara (although I am biased as they are my grandmas!).
I love all the names on your list. Elizabeth is lovely but obviously more common than the others so if you wanted something a little more unusual I would go with one of the other names. Florence is also becoming more popular.
My favourites would be Olive and Ivy but Clara and Lucille are also lovely.
Honestly, you couldn't go wrong with any of those names.
The boys' version is Florent. Just like Laurence (girl) and Laurent (boy).
I think Elizabeth is the most classic one, Lucille is lovely and underused. I think Florence and Clara are very 'trendy' and will probaly date more as they fall out of fashion after a few years (of overuse).
