Still can't decide...Baby is 6 days old!

I'm down to two names Freya or Grace.

I was really keen on Freya but I'm worried it's too fashionable.

I more recently started to conside Grace...but is it too popular?

What do you think?

I dislike Freya by an association with an awful child whose mother has no control over her at all.

I'm not keen on Freya, feely awkward on the tongue.

Grace is lovely.

A sort of combination if both - Greta?

I suggest you let your DD wear a name for a few days, then try a different name. Don't tell anyone

I know a Freya Grace!

I'm not a major fan of either, so in a way have an unbiased opinion I guess. I'd go for Grace. Freya is fashionable and has appeared from nowhere, I think it could easily end up as a Tracey-type name which completely dates. It's also actually not a massively nice sounding name really. It also has no good shortening - Frey? Ray?

Although I don't really like Grace it is a genuinely pleasant sound and meaning, Gracie is a sweet nn and it is a classic that won't ever really sound bad, even though it has been really popular these last 10 years or so.

I like both but think Grace just pips Freya.

Are you considering any other names?

Not sure if you are saying that popularity bothers you? If so Gracia is Spanish and super rare?

Iprefer Freya
Grace reminds me ofa girl that I have known that was a spoilt bully!
