Claudia
Eloise
Harriet
Hester
Elizabeth
Poppy
Tabitha
Tamsin

Love:
Harriet
Poppy

Love but not brave enough to use:
Hester
Tabitha

Dislike:
Tamsin
Claudia
Eloise

I feel indifferent about Elizabeth. It feels like a.middle name to me.

You might have to wait till she is born and see which name suits her best?

I like Claudia best from your list.

BoysBoysBoysAndMe Wed 10-Oct-12 21:33:18

Poppy Eloise

Eloise Harriet

Claudius Eloise

tara0202 Wed 10-Oct-12 21:33:35

Love Claudia - sophisticated name in my opinion.

I like Eloise and Harriet.

Don't like Hester or Tamsin

Tabitha sounds a bit like a cats name to me.

Poppy too popular for my tastes.

tara0202 Wed 10-Oct-12 21:34:35

Forgot to mention Elizabeth - bit boring in my opinion. Some nice nick names from it though, I like Beth.

DisappointedHorse Wed 10-Oct-12 21:35:39

Love Harriet and Hester.

Like Claudia, don't like Eloise or Tamsin. Tabitha and Poppy are nice enough but very popular if that bothers you.

Claudia - a bit hard
Eloise - nice but prefer Louise/a
Harriet - OK
Hester - dislike
Elizabeth - OK
Poppy - like
Tabitha - dislike, too catty
Tamsin - quite nice

I like them all except Poppy and Tabitha. Too cutesey.

I particularly like Hester. It's quite unusual, these days.

I agree about Tabitha sounding a bit cat like. I suppose I just needed people to confirm as I think my friends would be 'yes men' if I asked their opinions. So I think I'll take Tabitha off my list. Please also feel free to suggest any other names you think I may like.

Claudia - quite like it. Very timeless and elegant
Eloise - not keen, it sounds a bit nasal to my ears
Harriet - quite like it but not very exciting
Hester - like it and only know of teenagers with the name, no little ones
Elizabeth - bit meh. It's ok and the ultimate timeless name but not a name I'd ever choose
Poppy - It's ok. Pretty but lacking substance
Tabitha - not keen. too catty
Tamsin - quite like this

I would choose:
Hesther Eloise
Harriet Elizabeth
Claudia Tamsin

Elizabeth, Harriet and Eloise but not the rest.

HiHowAreYou Wed 10-Oct-12 22:24:12

Claudia Elizabeth. Fosho.

amck5700 Wed 10-Oct-12 22:27:33

Like Hester Eloise or Hester Elizabeth best so far.

What about Henrietta (Hetty) with Poppy as a middle name?

HolyAutumnGoldBatman Thu 11-Oct-12 02:10:17

Claudia - I have an irrational hatred of this one, think it's really awful
Eloise - fine, bit bland
Harriet - like
Hester - It makes me think of witches
Elizabeth - love
Poppy - ok
Tabitha - this also makes me think of witches
Tamsin - not keen

I think I'd choose Harriet Elizabeth or Harriet Eloise

Elizabeth is great with heaps of possible nicknames declares bias as mum of Bess

Love love love Tabitha.

Really like Hester, Claudia and Tamsin, too.

Knowmheapsmof little Harriets all of a sudden, and Poppys too.

lycisca Thu 11-Oct-12 09:47:49

Hester and Eloise are my favourites.

Metronomy Thu 11-Oct-12 09:53:45

Claudia Poppy. Lovely!

saffronwblue Thu 11-Oct-12 10:05:48

Hester Eloise

morethanyoubargainfor Thu 11-Oct-12 10:07:36

Hester Elizabeth is my favourite.

RTchoke Thu 11-Oct-12 10:29:25

I love Eloise, Harriet, Tabitha and Hester (although I think Esther is even nicer than Hester).

Elizabeth is classic and I love Beth and Eliza but its just a bit plain.

I personally dislike the sound of the name Claudia. I also think it sounds pretentious. I also really dislike Tamsin which has a very 80s ring to my ears.

Poppy is OK, a bit meh but OK.

baskingseals Thu 11-Oct-12 10:45:31

i really like Tamsin.

also like Elizabeth.
