What do we think of...

Sister to Edith, known as Edie?

Audrey wonderful

Aurora - Disney Princess and lights
Ophelia - a feel of Ophelia
Cecelia - Suggs cover
Beatrice - like but not as much as Audrey
Beatrix - like but think you will continually correct from Beatrice

I like Audrey but I think it's too similar sounding to Edie

of your list I like Beatrix and Cecelia best

They're all v pretty, good list. Beatrice is my favourite and goes well with Edith/Edie and abbreviated to Bea which also goes well with Edie.

Audrey, I like it a lot. Eldest Dd has a friend with the nameand it has worked when she was a baby/child and now in her twenties.

Not too stuffy (Beatrix, Beatrice, Cecelia) or fluffy (Aurora, Ophelia).

I think Audrey is the most lovely.

Audrey and Edie rolls off the tongue without being samey.

I love Audrey (and Edie) but think they are too similar.

Beatrice goes nicely.

I think Audrey is a fantastic name
Some of the women on my side of the family have it as a first or middle name. Inc me grin

SillyBeardyDaddyman Sun 30-Dec-12 23:24:59

Just makes me think:

"feed me Seymour!"

Oooh I know a lovely Audrey and the other name they had for her was Beatrix, how funny!

Edith and Audrey, that's lovely.

I also liek Cecilia, Beatrice or Beatrix from your list.

I have an Audrey so I'm biased. smile

To be honest though, I don't think it works with Edie as it's too much of a tongue twister. You'll end up shouting Audie and Edrey.

Audrey is head and shoulders above your other choices IMHO. Fabulous name.

jellyrolly Thu 03-Jan-13 22:43:34

I love Audrey.

I have boys but when pregnant said I like Audrey and someone said "I just think of Audrey off Corrie", no better woman wink.

NotjustaMummy Sun 06-Jan-13 06:37:55

Dagnammit! Turns out there is already an Audrey on the other side of the family... I never plan to see them but it would appear there would be ishoos hmm
