Which do you prefer? Our baby girl was born 5 days ago and we are finding it hard to make a decision. Our DD1 is called Molly.

Thea definitely.

Skullnbones Tue 02-Apr-13 19:19:32

Alice definitely. Thea is lovely but becoming very popular

Alice Rose is lovely - go with it or Alice May / Mae (my fav combination)

fussychica Tue 02-Apr-13 19:13:18

Congrats - lovely names but Alice for me - timeless!

Alice, Molly and Alice sounds lovely.

Thanks everyone, really appreciate all your feedback. I still haven't totally decided but I agree that Florence is a bit faddy, which is a shame as it was my grandmother's name. OH likes Thea but I'm not sure it sounds like a proper name - need to mull over it for another day. In any case, if she's Thea, she will be Thea Alice (may register her as Theodora but call her Thea), otherwise Alice Rose. Thank you smile

Alice is lovely with Molly smile

(Biased, as I have one smile

I love Florence, so timeless and really beautiful.
Thea is not my cup of tea.
Alice, as very nice.

Thea for me. Like Alice a lot too though. Florence is a bit faddy at the moment, sorry (though a beautiful name in general)

Molly and Florence
Molly and Thea
Molly and Alice

Have championed both Alice and Florence on these boards but I think in this instance I'd go for Thea.

Congratulations thanks

Alice, timeless.

Oh, unless you live in part of the SE where people pronounce th as f of course. Fee-a doesn't sound as good.

lottiegarbanzo Tue 02-Apr-13 02:17:06

What a lovely set of names! Helpful hmm?

I'd choose Thea, though I'd probably use Theadora. I love Florence but its quite trendy now, so will date. Alice is quite timeless.

Alice. Not big on Thea and Florence is getting very popular.

Theas18 Mon 01-Apr-13 23:43:11

Thea Alice or Florence?

Thea of course lol.

Alice! Lovely name

Florence is a bit over done at the mo. Thea is pretty but I just prefer Alice

I like all of them. I think Alice sounds the best with Molly.

HappyDogRedDogToss Mon 01-Apr-13 20:31:45

I like Alice then Florence.

I don't like Thea because of the Tay-a / Thee-ah / Theay-a thing.
