Girls name needed urgently!

I am due any day now (EDD was yesterday!) and we still don't have a girls name. I love Pippa but DH doesn't think it is a proper name and we're not keen on Phillippa. Other names we like are:

Alice
Abigail
Beatrice
Matilda
Felicity
Thea
Alexandra
Tabitha (DH doesn't like)

If you can think of any other names or give thoughts on names above that would be great!

Thanks

Alexandra my favourite from your list, classic, timeless and classy! Could also easily shorten to Alex or Lexi.. How about Elizabeth, Cleo I love, Genevieve? smile

Rebecca, Cleo, Thea (Theodora), Madeleine, Talulah/Tallulah...sometimes the name just comes to you when you finally meet her. Good luck!

I would choose Alice from your list. Also like Pippa but was put off after reading on here that it doesn't translate well in lots of languages...I'll leave it at that.

Alice is very pretty.

Funny, I think Tabitha is one of those names women love and men hate. Like Gabriel.

I like Abigail, Beatrice and Alexandra best of those. Felicity is OK but I don't like its nicknames.

Thanks for your help everyone. I think we've narrowed it down to the following:

Abigail (NN Bee or Abi)
Alice
Beatrice (NN Bea or Trixie)
Thea

Might just have to wait and see what she looks like (if she turns out to be a she at all!)

I love Alice, Thea and Beatrice.
