Hi. I've finally plucked up the courage to post our shortlist on here to get peoples views! Dd is due in September so we have some time for fine-tuning/final selections.

Middle name will be Rose (after my sister/her godmother), surname starts with F.

Romilly (nn Romy)
Abigail (nn Abi)
Georgina (nn Georgie)

Thanks smile

I wouldn't go with Romilly Rose, although it does roll off the tongue quite nicely!

Abigail would be my pick of the three.

Not on your list but I prefer Georgiana to Georgina and Georgina always makes me think of Tim from the Famous Five smile

as as as blush

Abigail or Georgina but not Romilly.

winnybella Thu 30-Jun-11 23:10:56

Abigail or Georgina (although I prefer Georgiana as well).

MsChanandlerBong Thu 30-Jun-11 23:14:01

I think Georgiana will be 'off the table' unfortunately as DH doesn't like "adding random extra syllables into names" confused

Why no to Romilly Rose when it trips off the tongue so nicely - and as middle names are used so rarely in rl? (Ahem, that one might be my favourite!!)

Georgina rose works best. Could also be shortend to gina.

chocoroo Thu 30-Jun-11 23:32:38

I think Abigail/Abi is a little dated and I'm not fond of the "Gail" part.

I like Georgie as a nn but not a fan of Georgina.

Romilly is a fab name, and Romy or Milly good nn's. But then I am a little biased ;)

StarryEyedMama Thu 30-Jun-11 23:35:12

I think Abigail is lovely smile

Clary Thu 30-Jun-11 23:35:45

Abi and Georgie are quite popular. I don't know any children called Romilly so on that basis it gets my vote.

Rather like Romilly Rose actually, my DD (I have just realised!) has alliterative first and second names and I am not a fan of alliteration like that in other ways (eg all DCs' names starting with same letter, first and surname starting with same letter etc)

All a bit 70's really.Roma might be interesting though.

Lonnie Thu 30-Jun-11 23:43:27

then Abigail for me

Is Georgiana pronounced George-jane-a

because if so it's really pretty and you should go for it wink

pinkthechaffinch Fri 01-Jul-11 08:54:13

<<I meant to take out that wink as it wasn't really a winkable comment.

PurpleStrawberry Fri 01-Jul-11 09:13:18

Georgina is my favourite of the three.

pilates Fri 01-Jul-11 09:40:58

Abigail Rose, not keen on others

Quenelle Fri 01-Jul-11 10:25:17

Romilly Rose

It's very pretty.

dangalf Fri 01-Jul-11 11:07:23

I think Romilly Rose is lovely. Not keen on the other two tbh.

NoHunIntended Fri 01-Jul-11 11:10:10

I love alliteration, and have AA initials (first and middle) myself. The first A is Abigail, and I like it, but for you, with Rose as a MN, her initials would be ARF. So I'll vote for Romilly. It's meaning is 'walker' though, which to me is a bit boring, as far as name meanings go. Also agree Abigail is rather popular, depends if that bothers you.

mateysmum Fri 01-Jul-11 11:15:20

I too would be in the GeorgiAna camp. FYI, it's a proper and time honoured spelling (Think that Keira Knightley film The Duchess). The name is probably 2-300yrs old and I think very elegant.

Not sure about Romilly. I wouldn't be sure if it was male or female and sounds a bit surnamey to me - which I'm not fond of. Abigail is nice though and all go well with Rose.

SloganLogan Fri 01-Jul-11 11:28:50

Georgina or Abigail.

GeorgiAna is too fussy compared to Georgina.

MsChanandlerBong Fri 01-Jul-11 11:34:25

Mateysmum... I agree that GeorgiAna is a lovely, proper and traditional name... it is just DH seems to have some sort of 3 syllable rule when it comes to names. Pre-pregnancy I had all sorts of names vetoed on that basis so I have given up on trying!!

Nohun... I'm having a giggle at ARF!! But also GRF is a bit, umm, gruff!! (And RRF ruff!!) TBH as it doesn't spell anything rude or offensive I had decided to let it fly.

spiderlight Fri 01-Jul-11 11:34:43

I live just round the corner from a Romilly Road, so that would put me off a bit! I do like Romilly though.

PastyKensit Fri 01-Jul-11 11:35:29

What about Rose as first name?

MsChanandlerBong Fri 01-Jul-11 11:38:34

Pasty we did contemplate that (or rather Rosie, which is what DSis is really called) but I am hoping that DD and DSis will have a lovely close relationship and I think that might get a bit confusing.

On this basis we also ruled out the name Josie which we loved (Rosie and Josie are going for a walk... sounds a bit Janet and John!!)

Anyway, we prefer the three on our shortlist now smile
