Need to decide on a girls name, love either Pippa or Charlotte however cant decide between then, swaying towards Pippa I think (although OH isnt hugely keen). Middle name will be Elizabeth. Have two boys already - Henry & George.

Charlotte for me!

Charlotte is beautiful! Pippa, no.

Thanks squoosh. So many "Pippa" threads, I can't cover them all solo!

<listens to bubbles bursting>

I love Charlotte!

Pippa definitely. Charlotte is so boring. If you worried what the translation might be in Sweden or wherever then put Philippa on the bc.

I'm afraid it's true, Pippa is a trans continental term for all kinds of filth

Or are you winding us up, squoosh?

NadiaWadia Sun 12-May-13 02:25:46

But how can it be 'shag' in Sweden, the home of Pippi Longstocking??? (Genuine question)

Or is it wank in Italian and blow job in Greek?

Either way........

squoosh Sat 11-May-13 23:19:36

Allow me Poppy, I feel it's my duty!

Swedish - shag
Greek - wank
Italian - blow job

<ponders if this is another thread where I have to point out what Pippa means in Italian and Greek>

KittenofDoom Sat 11-May-13 23:17:15

Charlotte, no contest at all.

Really don't like Pippa and it has all those dodgy meanings in other languages.

Would Charlotte be shortened to Charlie or Lottie?

I like Pippa shortened for Philippa, not as a name on its own, Charlotte and Lottie but not so keen on Charlie for a girl.

NadiaWadia Sat 11-May-13 18:22:49

Pippa is OK but a bit nicknamey and (I think) a bit of a current fad (Middleton, etc) Philippa is better, for the full name.

Charlotte has a beautiful sound, and is a lot more classic, and I would go for that every time. Of course there are a lot of Charlottes around! (if that puts you off).

I love the name Charlotte smile

farmersdaughter Sat 11-May-13 18:02:33

Pippa but only is you have Philippa as a full name.

Love Charlotte too

Philippa Charlotte is very pretty smile

OkayHazel Sat 11-May-13 17:45:48

Charlotte is classic.

I like Pippa best. Know loads of Charlottes, but only ever met 2 Pippas (one was just Pippa, one was Philippa).

Fuckwittery Sat 11-May-13 17:40:42

love both
would you mind charlotte being called charlie/lottie etc though?

Charlotte is my favourite, although I am also biased.

Charlotte is more popular than Pippa though, that puts some people off.

Foosyerdoos Sat 11-May-13 17:38:06

Charlotte is my favourite (biased).
