Baby is due thursday, what do people like - elodie, or ottilie? Alice is middle name. One set of in laws prefer elodie, the others ottilie. HELP!
Also nicknames advice please......

The longer this pregnancy goes on the more we change our minds,
worried elodie is too popular, and that ottilie sound too much like utterly so:
So we are looking now at Merryn, Tansy, Julliette, and Serena.

If this baby does hurry up we will be stuck with consuela or marigold!

Merryn and Julliette are lovely! Good luck with birth smile

Not a fan of Tansy or Serena. Any spelling of Juliet is lovely. Merryn feels a bit JR Tolkien to me.

Merryn would be my pick from your other choices - great name. How about Merryn Juliette?

Like that.

Ottile is a gorgeous name. Elodie is also nice.

Congratulations and good luck with the birth smile

Why don't you wait 'til you see her, then look at her little face and decide!

ukfirestorm Thu 30-May-13 12:19:48

good idea. but then she might be niceface cutehead!

calypso2008 Thu 30-May-13 13:24:36

Or, Oh-my-sweet-baby-cutie-blue-eyes! grin

Maybe you should decide before smile

my sister has an elodie, an ottilie and an agatha!

Juliette every time smile ( though she will spend her life spelling it out if she stays in England....Juliet being more "obvious" spelling).
good luck with LO

I love Elodie. If I didn't already have an Eloisa, I'd consider it if we ever had another baby! Good luck!

Ottilie sounds like utterly to me.

Elodie or Juliette.

Good luck with birth

There are three Serenas in DD2's class (and the rest seem to be called Sophia or Megan). Juliette is nice. Tansy is hideous.

Can we ask what you chose? One of your options is my name so more than usually curious!
Hope you and LO happily united now
