I have done so many posts on names but we are now at the end and due date is tomorrow. We have it down to these two names we like them both although I prefer Jemima and dp prefers Eliza however we have both agreed that we are happy to have either. Bit of background we have a french sounding surname, and she will have 4 big brothers who have classic/ royal names.

Eliza (or Elise might go well, as you have a French-sounding surname)

Definately Eliza, especially with 'royal' sibling names and a french csounding surname. Jemima is far from royal, very far.

Jemima has more nickname possibilities, but they are both lovely. [unhelpful post]

I don't think you can have one as middle name either, too many A sounds.

Definitely Eliza - Jemima makes me think puddleduck and playschool doll! Eliza also good with royal siblings.

NigeltheFuckwit Thu 30-Jun-11 20:27:48

Eliza is lovely.

Well it's d day today not that she is showing any signs of arrival. Still unsure which name to go with although I think it is looking most likely we will go with Eliza.
