Hoto Tue 30-Aug-11 19:48:08

herhonesty Tue 30-Aug-11 19:48:42

And the others?

I almost said Thomasina on that 'names that will never come back in to fashion' post earlier today but changed my choices to Roger and Mildred.

I really like your other 3 names. we considered 2 of them when we were expected DD.

Martha and Jemima would be ok-ish. Not Scarlett (too tarty). Thomasina is positively nice.

TinkerTailorSoldierLibrarian Tue 30-Aug-11 19:51:11

Thomasina's blooming lovely.

The others are a bit meh.

Lovely name , am watching her now on telly , lisping away and cooking bananas.

I love Scarlett and Jemima

RueyBoey Tue 30-Aug-11 20:19:56

Thomasina is a mouse (Tamsin is just about okay)
Jemima is a duck

Martha is the best I think. Scarlett comes across as a bit faddy.

In order of preference...

Scarlett
Martha
Thomasina
Jemima

Thomasina was my cats name.

limetrees Tue 30-Aug-11 20:31:41

Thomasina is a ridiculous name IMO.

The rest are fine.

Haberdashery Tue 30-Aug-11 20:39:31

I love Thomasina and Jemima but think Martha is a bit dull and Scarlett has had its day.

rachel234 Tue 30-Aug-11 20:42:15

I love Thomasina and Martha. Don't like Scarlett (little scar) or Jemima (pancakes).

Alliwantisaroomsomewhere Tue 30-Aug-11 20:43:48

Thomasina - cat
Jemima - puddle duck
Scarlett - harlot

Martha - bit bleh but better than the rest

<wonder if i will get such brutal treatment when my name selection starts grin>

Tis a bit Nigel / Nigella

Funny you should say that, Nigella Lawson had a sister called Thomasina.

rimmerfleadick Wed 31-Aug-11 02:04:33

Just makes me think of this.

What about Tamasin rather than Thomasina? Although I really like it.

MugglesandLuna Wed 31-Aug-11 13:14:17

It makes me think of my favourite film as a child, about a ginger cat called Thomasina.

love it

greenzebra Wed 31-Aug-11 13:25:43

I like all your names except for Martha ( its too old fashioned for me and not strong or pretty sounding to my ears)

Thomasina is a pretty classic under used choice.

Love Jemima, also has pretty nn mimi and jem.

Scarlet I love, thought about this for our DD1.

Out of all your suggestions I like Jemima the best.

FannyBrawne Wed 31-Aug-11 13:32:56

Love Thomasina (reminds me of Thomasina Miers as in Master Chef, Wahaca etc)

Go for it

MorallyBankrupt Wed 31-Aug-11 16:08:01

I always tell Dh if he dies and I was pg I'd called the baby Thomasina. He thought I had made the name up in my head though grin

I really like it. It seems elegant.

jordanna79 Wed 31-Aug-11 16:21:35

I love Tommasina - it's Italian...as am I. So I can assure you you haven't made it up! It was on my shortlist (I'm having a boy) but I would have slight doubts thinking it's a bit Jolly Hockeysticks! :-)
