Hi all

I am looking for a short, punchy girls name, preferably with a vintage feel.

What do you think of the above, and have you any suggestions?

Like Audrey too, I should say, any comments on that welcome too. Was Keenan Mabel but think I am chickening out of that one!

birdofthenorth Wed 31-Oct-12 14:28:01

keen on Mabel, that should say!

I like Audrey. Lois is nice, but doesn't say vintage to me.
Don't like Nina, but like Sylvie/Sylvia.
Mabel says old lady to me.

I absolutely love Sylvia. Beautiful. Maybe Pearl is something else you'd consider?

Love Nina.

Lois...though biased
I have a Lois smile

But we call her Lolly <unhelpful>

Not Sylvie, unless you're French!
Not keen on Lois - would make me think of Superman every time I heard it.

Sylvia is such a beautiful name.

I have decided that is what your daughter will be called. You may erase the other names from your list.

Kind regards,

DD is Nina (yahboosucks to Solo). I only know excellent Ninas.

All your other names (apart from Mabel) were on our list of possibles. I think Lois rocks.

I love the name Nina!

nina's cool grin

Alisvolatpropiis Wed 31-Oct-12 23:57:57

I like Nina!

And love Audrey,always makes me think of Audrey Hepburn.

Nina is lovely. Is it meant to be short for anything?

Nina or Mabel are fab names and my faves from your list!

I love Sylvie, it is so pretty. If ds had been a girl, he would have been Sylvie.

jaggythistle Thu 01-Nov-12 06:32:01

i think they're all nice, but Lois is my favourite. smile

jaggythistle Thu 01-Nov-12 06:34:13

actually not so keen on Hope and prefer Sylvia to Sylvie.

I really wanted nina for dd but dh vetoed it. Also loved Lola which isn't on your list.

SoulTrain Thu 01-Nov-12 06:47:18

Nina is lovely!

Dontbesodramatic Thu 01-Nov-12 06:59:18

I have a Ninagrin

mummabug Thu 01-Nov-12 07:20:08

Lois smile

BoerWarKids Thu 01-Nov-12 07:22:23

I really like all of them except Hope. Just makes me think of prem babies sad

RTchoke Thu 01-Nov-12 07:25:26

I like them all except Sylvia. They are all punchy and retro. My order would be:

Hope (I also like Faith)

Ooh, a mixed bag of responses! Thanks all. More love for Nina than I thought. I really like it but DH is on the fence. Zilly I think on the continent it is often short for any name ending in Eena- Katerina, Marina etc. But I like it alone I think.

Molotov I adore Pearl but my awful DH says he can't get past the "pearl necklace" double entendre which has slightly spoilt it for me!!
