Hi, me and my partner both have names we're pretty sure of problem is neither of us agree on the others choices!!! So any opinions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!! We already have a daughter, Lola and are expecting another girl.....


Not thought too much about spellings yet and definitely no middle name.
Thanks smile

I like Lexi and Ruby best.

MrsCarriePooter Tue 26-Jul-11 13:58:21

Ruby or Ava.

TimeWasting Tue 26-Jul-11 13:59:04

Ruby or Ava. Don't like others at all sorry.

Cattleprod Tue 26-Jul-11 13:59:23

I'd avoid another 'L' name.

Ruby is the nicest, although quite popular.

MrsCarriePooter Tue 26-Jul-11 14:00:13

I prefer Lexie with an e on the end if you do go for that though. I recently read The Hand That First Held Mine (by Maggie O'Farrell) and the lead character is called Lexie, short for Alexandra.

I like Ruby or Ava best (although both becoming quite popular now), followed by Lexi

EdithWeston Tue 26-Jul-11 14:06:43

I would go for Alexandra, with Lexie as a nn.

Ruby and Ava are OK, but I don't like the others (sorry).

InstantAtom Tue 26-Jul-11 14:48:40

Ruby, then Ava.

lchodge Tue 26-Jul-11 14:52:22

I really dont like Alexandra and don't want a name with a nn.
I dont know anyone using Ava or Ruby but people always say their very popular?!
Not many girls names I like even the ones on my list I think are just so-so. Lol poor baby!!!

You don't know anybody with a child under 12 called Ruby? REALLY? Where do you live?

I suggest not another L name (I don't like themes, generally). And Ava maybe also too similar to Lola, too (in a 2 child family).

I know at least one child under 10 with each of those names, except Lacey. Spelling on Kacey/Casey varies widely; KC probably my fave from your list.

lchodge Tue 26-Jul-11 15:11:15

I'm in Glasgow. I know 1 Ruby who is 79yo! Always dismissed it as old fashioned. Same with Ava. There just isn't enough names! Think its back to the drawing board so far.....
Still like Lacey though my partner really doesnt sad

Moanna Tue 26-Jul-11 15:23:44

I love Ava, ruby is my next favourite. I do think it depends on where you live as to the more popular names.

lchodge Tue 26-Jul-11 15:25:58

I definitely agree Moanna, region does seem to play a massive part in popularity.

CaptainNancy Tue 26-Jul-11 15:29:42

Isla (unless your surname's Harris wink)

lchodge Tue 26-Jul-11 15:31:25

Sorry I really dont like any of those names not to my taste at all!!

CaptainNancy Tue 26-Jul-11 15:32:11


EvenLessNarkyPuffin Tue 26-Jul-11 15:36:21

Not loving any of them, but like Ava. I'm really with your DP on Lacey.

wigglesrock Tue 26-Jul-11 15:37:33

Lacey and Kacey are my least favourites. Ichlodge I'm in Northern Ireland and I don't know any baby Rubys either, know quite a few Granny Rubys grin. Out of your list I like Ava and Ruby the best.

2blessed2bstressed Tue 26-Jul-11 15:38:44

I don't really like Lacey or in Scotland too and I know a couple of little Rubys. And an Ava.

superjobee Tue 26-Jul-11 15:41:16

lexi for definate smile it rolls better off the toungue with lola especially in a weegie accent grin

EvenLessNarkyPuffin Tue 26-Jul-11 15:43:16


lchodge Tue 26-Jul-11 15:44:58

Wigglesrock all the Rubys I know are Granny's too!! Lol smile

2blessed they names arent really up my street at all, sorry!

I'm really not too fussed about popularity. Unless you go for something really out there or made up then theres bound to be other kids with the same name somewhere!

Still looking.....

cece Tue 26-Jul-11 15:47:04

Not keen on any from your list - sorry

How about


CaptainNancy Tue 26-Jul-11 15:48:02

Lexie's your best, but Lola and Lexie is too many 'l's I think...


Ruby and Ava are really popular now, at least in England, so I don't think people will consider them old fashioned names at all.
