We're currently considering Sarah...what do you think? Boring or a timeless classic? Other names on the shortlist are Lucy & Hailey. This baby naming malarky is driving me insane!

I'm called Sarah and my little sister is Lucy smile I think you're safe now but the only big drawback of being a Sarah born in the 80s is I meet a LOT of them! Once worked somewhere and there were 4 of us in one team!

Timeless classic, as is Lucy

Emily is a nice name but very popular. I prefer Sarah / Lucy.

I like it but it is becoming more popular, I know two babies recently named it.

I'm a Sarah and I've always loved my name, I was the only Sarah til secondary school when I was one of two- ironically my best friend was called Lucy...ditto the princess meaning...that came up a lot when I was little grin

Cool name

my fav name ever xx

Sarah is a beautiful name, but I love love love Lucy. Our DD is Lucy. There are not that many of them around....well, not here anyway.

HistoryNerd Tue 31-Jul-12 20:33:56

Love the name Sarah, its on my list

wigglesrock Tue 31-Jul-12 20:17:14

Sarah is beautiful, one of my daughters has the middle name Sarah - Sadie after her great granny and sometimes I wish it was her first name grin

Hassled Tue 31-Jul-12 19:54:34

Sarah's definitely in the timeless classic camp - a lovely name.

Lannie33 Tue 31-Jul-12 19:52:41

PS I love Hailey too (with this spelling, but to me spelling doesn't matter that much, it's more about the sound). My order would be Emily, Hailey, Sarah, Lucy.

Lannie33 Tue 31-Jul-12 19:50:59

I love Sarah and Emily...I've always had a special soft spot for Emily though, i love it for some reason. But Sarah is beautiful too. You can't go wrong. Lucy is OK imo. Emily and Sarah both VERY popular in Canada (have both been in top 10 for the last decade), not sure about UK. Lucy is uncommon here (i know one, she's 3 or 4 now).

WanderingOkapi Tue 31-Jul-12 19:40:16

Sarah infinitely more beautiful, unusual and elegant than Emily IMO

patosullivan Tue 31-Jul-12 19:33:15

I know a 3 yr old Emily

Greige Tue 31-Jul-12 19:19:03

Sarah is lovely, and can be 'shortened' to Sally or Sadie so lots of choice for pet names if you want them.

BardOfBarking Tue 31-Jul-12 19:14:48

GAH My 3 children know 11 Emilys between them - oldest 13 youngest 6 weeks.

SilkySmith Tue 31-Jul-12 19:10:23

not keen on Emily, stick to Lucy or Sarah IMO

DessieLou Tue 31-Jul-12 17:17:12

Thanks for your thoughts. The shortlist has changed slightly...Hailey is off the list so we're now choosing between 1)Emily 2)Lucy 3)Sarah. Do you know of many baby Emily's? I think we may just see which one she looks like when she arrives! Thanks again. smile

Sarah, was on our list but had a boy.

I also liked Sara.

Lucy is OK but I prefer Lisa.

Hailey is an odd spelling. I thought it was Hayley. Again OK but not as nice as Sarah.

RunYouBastardRun Sun 29-Jul-12 13:59:17

My dd is called Sarah. We chose between that and Lucy. Lovely names smile

WithACherryOnTop Sun 29-Jul-12 13:55:29

Love it.

patosullivan Sun 29-Jul-12 13:21:16

Timeless classic smile

CillaSlack Sun 29-Jul-12 13:12:33

Love it. Had this as our first choice girl's name but had a boy so never used it sad
