I mean fave girls name!

Ursula is awful, as is Ophelia. You will have to stump up for the therapy bills.

I like Marissa best.

Don't like Ursula at all.

I only like Ursula! Marissa at a push.

Ursula to me is the seawitch from the Little Mermaid!

Ophelia is lovely as is Octavia imho

Amelia is pretty and I do not know any!

Marissa sounds made up

Ophelia. By a mile.

I really really dislike Amelia.

Marissa - lovely

stripeybump Sat 03-Sep-11 23:53:22

Marissa - lovely and unusual

Ursula - hmm I'm Scottish and don't like it with a posh English accent and no 'r' sound but hey ho! She might get called 'Arseula' too.

Ophelia - lovely, but 'I feel ya'

Amelia - my fave but quite common now, whether that bothers you or not.

Ursula is fab.

Marissa is too frilly.
Ophelia lends itself to all sort of 'jokes' based on 'feel ya'.
Amelia is very popular and has the sound 'mealy' in the middle.

I like Ursula by far the best as it reminds me of Ursula le Guin, whose books I loved as a child. It means little bear, I think. Pretty and not over-used.

Ophelia has a very sad end in Shakespeare (and I assume your surname isn't Cox).
There seem to be lots of nn Millies about, and the other 2 names don't appeal to me in their full form.

I have a Marissa and we love it. Only anoying thing is that some people think we've called her Melissa, or try to spell it with one s. Also like Amelia from your list.

Definitely Ursula for me.

Marissa is a bitch
Ophelia is shakespeare
and Ursula is Andress

Now I probably should have read the thread first

but everyone gets connotations of names by their personal experiences - I found it far more difficult to name my daughter than any of my sons because every name reminded me of someone

Ophelia, its the name of my DD1. Its beautiful and we call her Fi for short.

randomimposter Sun 04-Sep-11 09:51:56

Marissa probably, though much prefer Melissa
Emilia much nicer IMO than Amelia

Marissa or Amelia for me. Ursula is such an ugly sounding name and I dont much like Ophelia.

Although be prepared for 'hilarious' people (like my DP hmm) to go "Ophelia bosom, har har har" when you introduce her!

pommedechocolat Sun 04-Sep-11 11:45:02

Marissa I guess. I think I prefer Melissa though.

Amelia is just so popular.
