Kate Moss's bridesmaids! Some lovely names.

I thought the same. I love Elfie (what's it short for?)

It's a sleb wedding Elfie is probably just named after elves.

I really like Mercy

Suits both a child and a grown woman, a name for all ages. It's traditional in the style of Grace but hasn't caught on in the same way - yet.

Is it not short for Mercedes like her off Hollyoaks?

PercyFilth Thu 18-Aug-11 17:07:21

It can be - isn't Mercedes the plural of mercy in Spanish? But Mercy is the English version of the name and is complete in itself.

I loved Mercy, too. DH just said "Mercy, mercy" in a silly voice every time I mentioned it, and wouldn't have considered it sad

I love poppy.

Could be Eleftheria or Elpheba maybe?

Mercy - lovely! Used lots in Africa, not really here. Definitely a no-go with our surname sadly

Love Blythe. Elfie can stand on it's own I think. Not sure about Bliss. There was a bar in my hometown called Bliss. It wasn't somewhere you would take your mother IYKWIM wink

I like Elfine - slightly different from the above and a character in Cold Comfort Farm.

Elfine? Love it and Bliss, shortening for Elizabeth?

Charlotte aka Lottie is Kate Moss younger sister.....she's only 13 but stunning no doubt we'll see her on the catwalk before too long!
