I know these are very 'usual' names, but which do you like most? I prefer Lauren, but DH isn't sure confused. Are they very popular names - are classes filled with them at the moment?

They are popular but pretty. I can see why you like them. I like Ellie or Lauren.

There are 9 Ellie's, 1 Emily and 1 Lauren in my DC's school of 180 children.

Prefer Emily, then Ellie. My impression is that Lauren is a name from 12 years ago, although I like it very much.

Emily, Lauren had a very brief popularity spike and 12 and under we have loads of Ellie's

I know a few Ellie's and Emily's under the age of 4, no Lauren's. But popular names are popular for a good reason! All lovely names.

Am secondary school teacher and they are very popular there among older kids, not so much with younger ones.

Sorry - like Eleanor best but not keen on Ellie. Nell is a beautiful short form though, IMO.

Lauren , I have a beautiful 8 year old one smile

Emily. But I'm biased because DD is one grin. Even though she is one of four at her playgroup.

Lauren reminds me of Miss Goodger from TOWIE.

Think Lauren is just awful.

The others are lovely, especially Emily - best girls' name ever (my DD)

DD is 3. She knows 2 Ellies, 1 Emily and no Laurens. Names in classes now aren't necessarily indicative of names in classes when your DD will start school in 4-5 years.

By comparison, we know 6 (that I can easily think of off the top of my head) Bellas, 3 each of Evie, Mia and Amelia, 2 each of Alice, Lucy, Seren, Elsa, Ava. I know none of these are on your list, but it's just something to consider if popularity is an issue for you, as the names you like aren't as popular as some of the names here.

And as for the name I like most. Emily, then Lauren.
