Hello, would love peoples opinions on the following names for our daughter due in 3 weeks!

Edie (Edith)

Our surname begins with an A and is 2 syllables. We already have a son called Archie. Thanks

I know a little Edie and she is gorgeous. I think its the nicest of the bunch followed by Agnes.

Love Edie. Not Myrtle.

Agnes is lovely, but there might be too many "a"s (depends on actual cadence). Not keen on Iris, sorry, and Myrtle just says "moaning".

I think Myrtle or Edith fits best with Archie when you say them together. Although they wont be together forever, so don't know if this is an issue for you!
Archie and Edith/Edie is great
Will you let us know which you choose?

I like Edie but not Edith. I'm not a fan of any of the rest of the names. They scream old lady to me and just can't imagine them on a little baby/girl.

Thanks everyone. Think I've gone off Iris a bit overnight!! Still really like the others though.
I prefer Edie to Edith but husband isn't sure whether people will think it's Eddie (as in short for Edward!) He thinks if we went for that we should name her Edith but call her Edie! I don't see the point in that really as Archie is an Archie on his birth certificate not Archibald!

I love Iris, Edith is nice. Agnes and Myrtle - not so keen.

Agnes is hideous.
Edith is lovely.
I don't like Iris.
Myrtle is awful.

Ebb Mon 19-Sep-11 13:38:55

Edie is lovely. I don't like Myrtle or Iris. I can't decide whether I like Agnes or not. I think I do. grin

Iris and Edith, Myrtle is a turtle and Agnes is catarrh sounding.

charlatan Mon 19-Sep-11 14:55:12

That is my one reservation about Myrtle! It rhymes with turtle! I like turtles but you know how cruel kids can be!

mathanxiety Mon 19-Sep-11 15:20:33

Agnes is gorgeous. I like your DH's idea of Edith on the BC and Edie as a nn.

Myrtle and Iris -- meh.

allieballiebee Mon 19-Sep-11 15:51:33

Edie is gorgeous and I think it goes really well with Archie

Absolutely love Iris and Edith (Edie). Agnes is ok; really don't like Myrtle.

minipie Mon 19-Sep-11 18:22:53

Like Edie, dislike Edith.
Like Iris
Dislike Agnes
Dislike Myrtle

pilates Mon 19-Sep-11 20:01:29

Not keen on any of them

susiedaisy Mon 19-Sep-11 20:07:46

Think they are all dreadful tbh sorry,

Duhart Mon 19-Sep-11 20:29:03

Like Edie, Iris and then Agnes. Myrtle just isn't an attractive sound and rhymes with furtle which would put anyone off!

Dexifehatz Wed 21-Sep-11 11:46:02

I like Agatha too.

1234BOYS Wed 21-Sep-11 12:00:31

My friend has just had an Edith - but always known as Edie - I very much like it.

telsa Wed 21-Sep-11 12:30:42

Edie or Edith - very lovely and goes nicely with Archie. Agnes is really sweet - very soft sounding, like Edith. Mrytle is cute. Iris sounds to me much harsher than the other names and I really can't get beyond the eye association and the IRIS Passport recognition system.
