Okay I'm being a bit greedy by starting another thread...but Harriet or Verity: go!

What do you reckon? Which is nicer? Or could Harriet Verity be a possibility...

Harriet most definitely.

Harriet. Very pretty. I don't really like names that are also words (Faith/Hope/Charity/Verity or, god forbid, Chastity) - I sort of find them a bit imposing. Don't think Verity is as pretty as Harriet, and doesn't have the nickname options (Harry/Hatty/Hetty, etc).

But both are perfectly good names. Go with your gut smile

Verity - lovely name!

Verity. I don't know any. I know one Harriet and her mum is very annoying and aspirational. Tres off putting.

Not keen on Harriet I'm afraid. Probably to do with one that I know.

Harriet Verity is lovely!

The Harriet I know is a real little live wire,
Verity sounds a bit quieter and more serious,

Both are lovely.

Harriet Verity is lovely as long as you don't mind always being reminded of the name you decided not to go with.

DD2's second name would have been my first choice and somedays I'd love to swap it round.

Both pretty names.

Love Harriet. And Harriet Verity is fine, as long as your surname isn't Harris or Ferrers ir something!

Mylittlepuds Sat 16-Feb-13 08:58:39

Pfft at Harriet is a wank name. Hmm I think a few of my family would agree with you there. Harriet it is though. And maybe Harriet Verity. I don't know why but really like it.

Definitely Harriet, though I may be biased! Ours appears to be a little strong willed though, as does another I met recently.

Harriet is a wank name.

Sorry it you're called Harriet

Mehrida Fri 15-Feb-13 23:11:35

Go Harty! (Or Harry...)

Mylittlepuds Fri 15-Feb-13 10:06:05

Oh course it could always be another DS...

Mylittlepuds Fri 15-Feb-13 10:05:38

Yay well I think it's decided by popular vote! Harriet. Phew. Thought Verity was going to confuse everything! Thanks everyone.

Umlauf Fri 15-Feb-13 09:06:18

My first doll was also a Harriet! Lovely, clever name. Could be Harrie/Hattie as nn.

AmandaCooper Fri 15-Feb-13 06:24:58

Another vote for Harriet. Verity is a nice name but Harriet pips it.

raisah Fri 15-Feb-13 06:06:00

Rebecca Harriet
Lucinda (nn Lucy)

Don't like Harriet Verity..
