Esmé Scarlett
Or
Felicity Rose

SoftSheen Mon 27-May-13 22:05:08

Felicity Rose.

Esme is nice but very popular at the moment.

SingleBelle Mon 27-May-13 22:08:41

Esme Rose

:-p

ditsydoll Mon 27-May-13 22:12:21

I don't mind popular really.. I think popular names are popular for a reason, dds name is popular now but I still love it and it suits her so much.

Esmé Rose is pretty smile

MoonHare Mon 27-May-13 22:46:52

I would go for Esme (with the accent over last e, which I can't seem to work out how to type) Rose.

Just wait til she's here and then decide. There's no real rush.

Esme isn't what I would call 'popular' to me that's top 20 and it's still far from being that.

Esme Rose is beautiful.

ImaginaryHat Mon 27-May-13 22:53:41

Theyre both lovely. As MoonHare said, just wait til she arrives and see which suits her best.

Felicity Rose - beautiful meaning (and I know a few too many baby Esme's recently)

noxius Mon 27-May-13 23:22:57

Felicity. Esmé is ok, but very popular, and then there's the whole pronunciation issue.

forgetmenots Mon 27-May-13 23:27:56

Felicity Rose. I'm really not keen on Esme (either spelling/pronunciation), it doesn't sound nice to me. Felicity is classic.

AlfalfaMum Mon 27-May-13 23:34:57

All lovely names. Wait and see what suits her smile

LifeIsBetterInFlipFlops Mon 27-May-13 23:51:57

Rose is lovely.

Felicity Scarlett!

JojoMags Tue 28-May-13 10:07:11

Don't like Scarlett, so Felicity Rose, or Esme Rose. Esme Rose, if it was up to me (and would pn it Ez-may).

seeker Tue 28-May-13 10:08:00

Felicity Rose.

ditsydoll Tue 28-May-13 10:27:16

What nn would I use for felicity?

NeedSomeSun142 Tue 28-May-13 10:29:48

fliss? I like felicity rose personally

PicardyThird Tue 28-May-13 10:35:30

Definitely go for Felicity Rose - a lot prettier and more classic than Esme Scarlett.

Felicity could be Fliss, Lissy, whatever you wanted really.

seeker Tue 28-May-13 10:35:32

Wait and see what nickname arises. I know a Liss- she made it up herself when she was about 5.

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Tue 28-May-13 10:40:02

Fliss, Flick and recently, Fizz.

Snazzywaitingforsummer Tue 28-May-13 10:40:17

Felicity is nice. NN Flick gets used quite a bit.

Littleolivetree Tue 28-May-13 10:46:42

Esme would be too fashionable for me. Really like felicity though. It sounds like you want us to say esme. I would go with your heart over advice from MN!

Alisvolatpropiis Tue 28-May-13 11:54:33

Felicity Rose is lovely.

As would Esme Rose be. How are you planning to pronounce Esme?

ditsydoll Tue 28-May-13 16:54:43

I'm really torn as Dh vetoed felicity early on but has decided he now loves it and still loves esmé so is leaving it up to me to choose.

If I chose Esmé i would pronounce it Es-may x
