Girls name opinions

please could you let me know what you think of my potential girls names:

Delilah (been a favourite for a while - probably would have Sophia as a middle name)
Siena (is it chavvy?)

We have a one syllable surname beginning with S so kind of like the illiteration with Siena.

Or any other suggestions? Tend to like strong beautiful names as opposed to flowery girly names.

Love Darcy, not so much the others I'm afraid.

Anyone else?? Struggling to make a decision.....thx

I like Siena.

Delilah is lovely but you have not one but two well known songs to contend with!

Only like Delilah out of those I'm afraid.

I prefer Dhalia to Delilah - too associated with the song for me

Not keen on Siena or Darcy sorry.

Not sure why I have commented - sorry blush

I like them all, but would say I preferred Sienna of the three. Darcy was my favourite before I had DD (DP vetoed) but its very popular so I'm glad I didn't go with it.

Thanks for the feedback. dont be sorry for negative comments - I would like all opinions!
Ive heard that Darcy is becoming popular but ive never met or heard of a single one.
Although nearly went with Ava for DD1 and so glad i didnt as they are everywhere now where i live!

Seina is a lovely name and sounds like it would go really nicely with your surname.

I like Darcy. Delilah is a bit too frilly for me. Siena is ok.

Love Siena smile

I like Delilah, if it's been your favourite name for a while, unless something else grabs you, you will regret not using it. I know several people who were talked out of their favourite name for their first DC then gave it to subsequent DC because they regretted not using a name they loved so much.

However, Delilah Sophia is a bit much, I would say a middle name that doesn't end in a "ah" sound would be better. (Unless it's a name with big family connection and emotional meaning for you, then go for it!)

Be warned however, you'll get a lot of people singing the Tom Jones song at you.

Thanks very much for all your comments.
Dontmind - Sophia doesnt have any special meaning. we just have a very short surname so quite like to have two or three syllables in the first names.
Suggestions appreciated!
Thank you.
