Here's the shortlist of baby names I'm considering that I generated with Mumsnet's Baby Name Finder. Let me know what you think.

I like Jasmine, Natalie and Zara best. Don't dislike any of the names on your list though.

Thanks guys. I agree that Ava is getting too popular (although I don't actually know any!) which is a shame as I've always loved it. Having said that, myself and OH's names both start with 'A' so probably best avoided!
And I think I'm going off Jasmine (although I may love it tomorrow!). Our current favourite is Natalie which is actually a surprise to me.
Thanks for your thoughts, it's always interesting to get the opinion of others in different areas of the UK. smile
