Sorry!! Totally missed your post - congratulations!

What about nn Hettie rather than Hatty?

I love Mia from your list too. Erin is lovely very strong. Isobel/Izzy just personally not a fan of, but I know lots of people love it. Don't worry about taking your time to name her - I always take the full 6 weeks!!! You have to be sure and there's so much getting to know her to be done! Enjoy x

You ask about popularity in Scotland.
Here is link to 2013 top 100 Scottish girls names:

Mia = no 17; Erin = no 18; Jessica = no 7

Harriet, Edie and Isobel are not in Scottish top 100 but Isabella = no 42

I don't think that spelling (think it's Scottish) is the most popular spelling and it's my favourite. I would go with Isobel I agree about the cod Irish comment of Erin too. Go for the Scottish spelling of Isobel especially if it's not that popular round your way x

Like Harriet the best with Edie a close second if it short for Edith

I like Mia and Edie (although I'd give an Edie a 'proper' name on birth cert e.g. Edith, Edwina)

I dont like Erin. Its one of those cod Irish names that annoys me.

Isobel is nice, but everywhere.

Erin is lovely
I prefer Isabella .
Mia is a nice name but so popular now so I would pick it. I know a few Mias and Mayas or Mya.
Harriet is terrible - sorry.

I like Erin best.

P.S. congratulations!

Harriet or Isobel. Mia feels a bit played out to me. It was very popular round here in the early 00s. One of my oldest (primary school) friends is named Harriet and nn was never Hattie.

Busymumto3dc Sun 11-May-14 07:14:40

Edie is my favorite on your list
I think it's lovely

DharmaBumpkin Sun 11-May-14 07:10:15

Harriet could be Etta as a nickname?

I like the others too. Congratulations!

puddeycat Sun 11-May-14 06:02:49

Love all of them. My dd is 5 months and called Edie and alot of people comment on how her name has grown on them and how pretty it is x

Waimaz Sun 11-May-14 04:56:54

Erin. Definately,beautiful name

ThingsThatShine Sun 11-May-14 02:40:19

Harriet and I don't think Hattie is inevitable! The others are nice too. Congrats on your new dd

Erin is lovely

Harriet or Isobel

herdawness Sat 10-May-14 21:57:02

Another day of baby girl no name, we are leaning towards Erin.. Isobel/Izzy a close second and Harriet holding on..just DH doesn't like Hattie as a nickname which seems inevitable..

We are conscious of Isobel/Izzy's popularity.. though we are in Scotland so not sure if it's so common? We only know one and she's 28..

Any Scottish members with insight into the popularity of these names?

Isobel-too popular and multiple spellings
Erin-a maybe but it feels like a made up name to me, sort of US fake Irish like Colleen
Mia-a short form of other names and trendy will date
Jess-not on its own but Jessica is fine or at a push Jessamine
Edie-better as Edith, I love Edith but Edie on its own not so much

emsyj Sat 10-May-14 17:12:11

Mia is my least favourite name - the others are all nice, but I wouldn't use Isobel myself as it is so so so popular round here - I grew up being one of four in my class at school and wouldn't want the same for my DCs. Every other little girl I meet is called Isobel.
