Nina is simply lovely.

strawberryswing Wed 14-Nov-12 12:02:15

Think nina is beautiful. I like Georgina too, and the nn Georgie (i use it for my daughter smile)

Dontbesodramatic Wed 14-Nov-12 12:12:25

I have a Ninasmile

FriggFRIGG Wed 14-Nov-12 12:39:44

I like Elsa and Iris best smile

JaxTellerIsMyFriend Wed 14-Nov-12 12:40:42

I like Elizabeth, Georgina, Elsa and Nina.

SurreyWithAFringeOnTop Wed 14-Nov-12 13:12:49

Iris by a long way

Elsa also lovely

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Wed 14-Nov-12 13:17:03

I like Elizabeth and Maggie best (but would go with Margaret on the bc). Meg is even lovelier than Maggie imho. Don't like Georgina but love Georgiana - think it must be the Darcy connection!

Maggie : Really lovely. Would keep at as Maggie as Margaret feels more dowdy.
Iris: I like that one too. Elegant and sparkling.
Nina: that one get my vote. Simple, but very chic.
Elsa: Yes, it's nice, less "sophisticated" than the Iris and Nina, but nice enough.
Elizabeth : I like it, but I am not keen on Libby.
Georgina : I'd prefer Georgia with Georgie, Georgina is too "frilly" for me.

CPtart Wed 14-Nov-12 13:49:03

Nina is nice.
Elizabeth (known as Elizabeth) is nicer!

bigkidsdidit Wed 14-Nov-12 14:52:41

Iris and nina are lovely smile

Maggie is a sweet name but it is still 'thatcher' only to me

BonaDea Wed 14-Nov-12 14:59:37

Maggie - my dad's dog's name (sorry!), cute for a child, but not so keen for an adult
Iris - lovely
Nina - nice
Elsa - not so keen
Elizabeth (but known as Libby) - on my list (known as Lizzy or Libby)
Georgina (known as Georgie) - lovely

flossy101 Wed 14-Nov-12 15:01:13

I LOVE Iris smile

FeuDeRussie Wed 14-Nov-12 15:07:56

Maggie - lovely, though everyone will assume her 'real' name is Margaret (fine if that's what you would put on the bc, or if you don't care what people think grin)
Iris - gorgeous
Nina - not a fan
Elsa - nice
Elizabeth (but known as Libby) - LOVE Elizabeth but not Libby. Prefer Lizzie and Beth as nn's.
Georgina (known as Georgie) - love it, though not quite as much as Iris. Love Georgie and George as nn's.

I like Iris best. Elsa is pretty - and so is Nina but it doesn't seem a strong name to me somehow.

Not keen on Maggie, it's too much of a nickname and a bit of an old-fashioned and frumpy one at that.

The others are OK. Elizabeth and Georgina are classic names so technically you can't go wrong, but just a bit ordinary and unimaginative to me.

Maggie - love my favourite
Iris - dislike it, very harsh
Nina - lovely but girlier than Maggie
Elsa - lovely but very now. Lots of names a bit similar. Ella, Eliza
Elizabeth (but known as Libby) - I like this
Georgina (known as Georgie). - ok I guess

georgee Wed 14-Nov-12 19:12:12

Thanks everyone, lots of food for thought there!

telsa Wed 14-Nov-12 23:42:45

Maggie is a bit casual. Iris is too abrasive, clinical. Nina is so cool, really compact but sassy and shiny. Georgina is my other favourite from your list. Lots of potential for shortening, Georgy, George, Gina.

louisianablue2000 Wed 14-Nov-12 23:49:32

Love Iris, DD2 was almost Elsa so like that (you know that's a short form of Elizabeth, nicer than Libby IMHO). Elizabeth and Georgina both good names as well.

HolyBrrrrrrBatman Thu 15-Nov-12 00:19:42

Maggie - not keen on this, makes me think of The Simpsons.
Iris - don't like this either
Nina - lovely, it's on my list for a future dd
Elsa - it's fine, but nothing special imo
Elizabeth (but known as Libby) - love, also on my list, not sure about Libby, quite sweet for a baby I suppose
Georgina (known as Georgie). - I like Georgie as a nn, but much prefer Georgia than Georgina as a BC name.

emmyloo2 Thu 15-Nov-12 06:45:30

I adore most of these names. Good taste!

Maggie - love this but would have Margaret on BC and I would go with Meg as nn. This is currently on my list
Iris - love this although it is probably a little more "now" with all the flower names and old-fashioned names. Lovely though.
Nina - adore this. Absolutely lovely and is on my list
Elsa - I like this but it is my least favourite as it sort of blends with the Ella, Lila, Lola, Eva type names for me
Elizabeth (but known as Libby) - classic but perhaps a little boring? I love Libby and also Beth
Georgina (known as Georgie). - I do love this.

So my favourites would be Nina and Maggie I think.

pumpkinsweetie Thu 15-Nov-12 06:47:24

Nina is the nicest smile

FuckingWonderwoman Thu 15-Nov-12 07:28:03

All fine, except Maggie. I've never met one I've liked - one I knew was small and sour and known as Slaggy Maggie to her work colleagues. Another was Baggy Maggie as she got a bit graphic regarding her vagina post childbirth.

georgee Thu 15-Nov-12 09:06:57

grin wonderwoman - Maggie's actually my sister's name (born Margaret) but I'm sure she wouldn't take offence at that! (I won't tell her!)

One more question everyone then as Nina seems to be quite a popular one - my other DD is Anna - does Anna and Nina sound ridiculous as a set of sisters or OK? I can't decide!
