I've just found out I'm going to have a little girl, so this is my shortlist:


I'm in Scotland if that changes the popularity of names smile, so what do you all think?

Lily, it's one of my favourites and what DP and I plan on calling one of our kids. I also love Sophia, it's my mums middle name and works well as a middle name too IMO smile

Greensleeves grin

I insisted for years that if I ever had any siblings and one was a sister she should be called Sorsha blush. Ended up with a brother lucky for him

I like Willow!

The dwarf in the film Willow and Willow from Buffy are equally tied in my mind when I think "what does that remind me of?".

Both are great characters so it's not a negative link. Though I do perhaps err more to seeing Willow as unisex because of the film whereas most people don't! smile

I would go for Willow, there are so many Sophias and Lilys around.

Love the name Sophia.

I'm too old (or female, I remember some guys watching at uni) for Buffy!

It is a cool film, that was the first time I became aware of my burning need to shag Val Kilmer

but Willow reminds me more of the one in Buffy!

GingerJulep Sun 30-Dec-12 23:25:20

Only because it is the one I think of... I liked the film a lot :-) And it is the title character.

But means I think of it as a boy's name.

Personally I prefer Sophia for a girl and I thought these threads were about seeking a range of opinions?

Greensleeves Sun 30-Dec-12 23:22:49

Willow is the name of LOTS of tv and movie characters. Why flag up that one? hmm

I like Willow.

GingerJulep Sun 30-Dec-12 23:20:38

Erm, isn't Willow the name of a (male) dwarf in the film of the same name?

I guess it probably has some more recent popular culture references.. but ot me it brings to mind the chap in the link above.

Thanks everyone. It's still a close choice between Sophia and Willow but I think we're going to go with Willow.

Willow, no contest. Great nns - Lolly, Lolo, Will, Billie - love it!

I like feisty girls names so probably not Willow for me..

Karbea Sat 29-Dec-12 20:06:58

Sophia, my kitten is called Willow (pussy).

Willow and Sophia are my two favourites but I can't decide between them both, I was thinking of maybe having Lily or Lucy as a middle name.
