We have our boy's name chosen but we are struggling to agree on a girl's.

Please tell me your favourite:

But it should be YOUR favourite, not ours smile!

Personally I like Zara, Alexandra and Juliane, but you and your dh should like the name. It should also sound nice with your surname imo.

I quite like Harriet and Julianne

Is Alessandra a popular name? I've never heard it and would think you had difficulty saying Alexandra properly if I heard it.

I like Zara and Harriet smile

Harriet gets my vote smile

Love Harriet so much I got one myself!

All good - probably Harriet and Alexandra but my favourite would probably depend on which goes best with your surname.

Agree that you should love the name (unless you're looking to avoid the popular/loved ones), but my favourites are Zara and Alexandra/Alessandra.

Alessandra is really pretty and gentle-sounding. I also love the name Alysse (ah-leece) but would worry about spelling/pronounciation. What about Elise?

Harriet (I love Hattie as nn), Zara or Alexandra - but Lebkuchenlover is quite right, it's whichever name you love and goes well with your surname.

All lovely but I'm also a Harriet fan.
I'd be worried 'Annelie' would sound too similar to 'analy'. Sorry!

I love Anneliese! It was on my shortlist but DH vetoed it sad

I like Anneliese and Julianne. Good Luck!

You've got my name and my dd's name on your list.

I think they are all lovely names, choose your favourite.

I love Anneliese although having a cousin of that name I might be a little biased.

MsAkimbo Fri 26-Apr-13 07:29:03

I agree you should choose whichever one you love. But since you asked wink...

Alexandra is my favourite.

Love Alessandra, i agree it sounds very soft and pretty.
