I like Florence, Amelia and Phoebe of your list. Have you chosen a middle name?

Choccyhobnob Thu 05-Sep-13 13:32:18

I vote Phoebe, it's beautiful, shame we've already used it on our cat grin

ButteryJam Thu 05-Sep-13 13:33:02

I vote phoebe smile

Florence or Matilda for me smile

Tiredemma Thu 05-Sep-13 13:33:45

not decided on middle name- thought we probably use one of those as middle also.

choccy- we actually love 'belle'- but used this on the dog last year!

Definitely Florence.

CharlieAlphaKiloEcho Thu 05-Sep-13 13:36:05

I vote Phoebe.

But I also love Matilda too.

Great list OP

I'd go for Florence

Snap!! I am did Monday too... How are you getting on. I love all those names. Think Esme is beautiful. I love Amelia too.. It is very popular, but that doesn't matter either.

I love Amelia. Phoebe just reminds me of Friends (though that isn't a bad thing!), Matilda of the little French girl, Esme is a fortune teller, and Florence is a Great Aunt of my DP.

Have a family member called phobes and it gets shortened to phoebes and fee. Just thought id add that.

scarletforya Thu 05-Sep-13 13:46:35

Amelia or Phoebe.

thegreylady Thu 05-Sep-13 13:47:33

I love all of them smile
in order:
Matilda [a bit popular nowadays]

LazyMonkeyButler Thu 05-Sep-13 13:48:26

From your list, I'd probably choose Amelia Florence.

Good luck & congratulations! smile

David Cameron has a daughter called Florence - does that put you off?

Amelia is lovely but at or near the top of the most popular girls' names.

Esme is the name of the vampire mum in Twilight.

Think I like Phoebe and Matilda best (probably Phoebe best as I don't know any).

CruCru Thu 05-Sep-13 16:11:10

Sorry, hope I don't sound too negative - they are all lovely names, just I tend to think of the disadvantages first.

Hope all goes well.

1 Amelia
2 Matilda
3 Esme

I like them all! Matilda is my favourite though.

Tiredemma Thu 05-Sep-13 17:15:50

Argh! Was hoping there would be a clear favourite. We have decided to pull a name out of a hat on Monday morning! Will update with outcome!

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Thu 05-Sep-13 19:38:37

Amelia Belle (dog or no dog it's a pretty name)

Phoebe Amelia

Matilda, very regal name. Hate Tilly though, so that would put me off a bit.

1) Matilda
2) Florence

Strong names with great girlie nns.

Don't like Phoebe. Feeble Phoebe. Plus does not sound good in Northern accents imo.

Amelia is lovely but currently the most popular name I think. I know of 2 plus an Amelie born this year in just a small number of baby producing acquaintances.

Esme will date to now due to Twilight.
