Please tell me your top two:

Alissia (specifically spelt that way to avoid being pronounced "al-eesha"

Caitlin and Lexi

Although, I do prefer Alexa and Lexi as a nn

I think we have similar taste smile I love most of those, the only one I'm not keen on is Lexi (but I like Alexandra). My favourite would have to be Caitlin, followed by Lydia and Annalise.

RickGhastley Sat 06-Aug-11 17:16:06


Sorry the others are not my taste at all.

Talia and Lexi

That's quite a mixed list.

Lydia is a good solid name.

Don't like Alissia or Alessia or Talia or Annalise or Lexi, sorry.

I like Alessia and Talia

Italiangreyhound Sat 06-Aug-11 20:59:40

Talia and Annalise are my favourites.

Lydia is great.

Alissia - she'll be always spelliing it which is probably a pain.

Alissia (though i like the Alissa spelling and Elissa too )
Talia is nice too

cantsleepwontsleepever Sat 06-Aug-11 22:47:51

Lydia is the only decent name here.

startail Sat 06-Aug-11 22:54:27

Annalise, my flat mate married a lovely American exchange student called Annalise and I've always thought it was lovely.
Catlin is nice too.
Can't cope with Lydia, I just hear the first syllable and think of jar tops sorry.

Thalia and Lydia

Thalia with a h is actually of totally different origins to Talia even though they sound exactly the same (taa-lee-ah). If it ends up on your shortlist you might want to check out both before deciding.

Lydia is the best, followed by Annaliese.
Not keen on Talia or Lexi - they feel to me a bit too nick-namey for a first name.
Indifferent about Caitlin.
Alissia/Alessia etc - I tend to think that however you spell them your daughter will always be spelling it and correcting people. It's almost like people see the A L and S and think oh yeah, that's Al-ee-sha or summat like it!

casperella Sun 07-Aug-11 11:54:50

Lydia teapot anyone? (Needs Scottish accent)

Sorry OP can't be of more help...

Alissia and talia.
