PG with dd3. Due in three weeks. Honest opinions wanted!

Charlotte - Long term front runner, maybe going off now slightly

Naomi - Has been in the running with both dd1 and dd2 but always dismissed at the last minute.

Florence - I LOVE. dh is a bit meh. Not sure if it would be considered 'weird' in our local area where made up names seem prevalent and old fashioned names not so much.

Elsa - New front runner. Discovered this the other day. Dh loves. I really like. But dd1 has a 3 letter first name also beginning with an E (think Adams wife with an A) so could be a problem?

All the names I lovely, I like Charlotte best

iheartshoes Fri 25-Oct-13 10:15:09

All pretty but I really love Charlotte

The others are ok but nothing special.

DSJamesHathaway Fri 25-Oct-13 10:46:38

Florence is my favourite but they're all nice

I like them all, Charlotte has more potential for varied nicknames and is timeless.

TheNumberfaker Fri 25-Oct-13 11:33:33

All fine and lovely. Florence would probably pass yhe Katie Hopkins test as it's Firenze in Italian wink

brightnearly Fri 25-Oct-13 11:46:12

I like them all, particularly Naomi!

comeandgo Fri 25-Oct-13 12:13:06

Glad most of you like them all but no consensus!

comeandgo Fri 25-Oct-13 12:53:12

An unsubtle bump for more opinions!

Littlecherublegs Fri 25-Oct-13 12:55:50

I like Charlotte the best.
Elsa is lovely too though I think it would clash with your other DD's name.
Naomi is ok.
Dislike Florence.

in that order

Purplerain80 Fri 25-Oct-13 13:21:52

Love Charlotte and the nn too, Naomi also love but a bit meh on the others,if that helps smile

peanutMD Fri 25-Oct-13 13:26:24

I'm not keen on any of them tbh.

Charlotte is massively popular in my area.
Naomi is a bit meh.
Florence just sounds pretentious and poncy.
Elsa is old fashioned.

If i had to choose one it'd be Naomi byt of course its not up to me and go by your instinct and pick the nane you love smile

Grumblelion Fri 25-Oct-13 13:33:18

In order of preference
Elsa - think it is possibly a bit too similar to your other DDFlorence - just not keen sorry

jemimastar Fri 25-Oct-13 15:11:14

Elsa is stunning- different, quirky, feminine.

Charlotte is pretty standard and very over used now IMO.

NotYoMomma Fri 25-Oct-13 16:01:53

I think Florence is very 2000/201X and will date sorry

Charlotte I love

CordeliaRose Fri 25-Oct-13 16:17:47

My favourite from your list is Naomi: I love it. I've only met one: she is in her twenties, and gorgeous smile

Charlotte was on our list if DS had been a girl. Still like it but not as much now!

Florence is nice, but I prefer Flora.

I agree that Elsa is too close to your other DD's name.

comeandgo Fri 25-Oct-13 16:31:11

Its a shame about Elsa being too much like dd1's.

We have a PITA surname which has ruled out a lot of names so finding another girls name we both love and will be usable with our surname is ao difficult.

Elsa fitted all the criteria until I realised the problem with dd1's name sad

UriGHOULer Fri 25-Oct-13 16:37:17

So you'll potentially have E*e, Elsa and....?

I think the two E names sound great together and the only problem is if your other dd has a big long flowery name that won't fit. Even then it probably won't bother her.

I say go for Elsa. It's gorgeous.

comeandgo Fri 25-Oct-13 16:40:49

For dd3 think '.. of the d'ubrrvilles'

comeandgo Fri 25-Oct-13 16:41:40

Excuse the typo!

comeandgo Fri 25-Oct-13 16:43:16

Its not Eve its the version with an A at the end

comeandgo Fri 25-Oct-13 19:00:59


NadiaWadia Fri 25-Oct-13 19:17:25

They are all nice except Florence. My favourite is Elsa, but I can see possibly it might cause confusion with your other DD's name. Or maybe not.
