These are the current short list. Big brother has an Old Testament name which is relatively popular at the moment.

Thanks in advance!

I like them all, especially Thea and Esme.

Juliet Esme sounds good. I like Sylvie too.

NormanTheForeman Sun 23-Jun-13 23:09:24

Juliet. One of my favourite names.

Elquota Sun 23-Jun-13 23:12:28

Juliet, by a long way.

I have a Juliette in my class. Pretty name.
And I know a nice (but slightly loopy) adult named Esme. (Reminds me of the witches in Terry Pratchett though).

Sylvie strikes me as old fashioned, but in a way that would be easy to get used to as the name of a little one.

Juliet is lovely My second preference would be Thea.

All gorgeous!

Thea or Sylvie.

How are you pronouncing Thea by the way? I like the Scandinavian pronunciation, Taya smile

Spanishomelette Mon 24-Jun-13 09:30:41

Thanks everyone who has posted so far. It's looking like a tie between Thea and Juliet at the moment.

I would pronounce Thea as Thee-ya, haven't really considered the Taya pronunciation to be honest.

Juliet or Esme for me :D

Turniptwirl Mon 24-Jun-13 21:35:29

Love Thea

I love your list! They're all beautiful names, but Esme is probably my favourite.

lastnightidreamt Mon 24-Jun-13 21:42:16

I love your choice of names!

In order of preference; Thea, Juliet, Sylvie, Esme.

They are all lovely though - unhelpful!!

Love Juliet and Sylvie, Juliet probably wins by a whisker as it's a bit stronger.
Don't like the others.
