Have included the NN we would likely use in each case:

Jessica (Jessie/Jess)
Josephine (Josey/Jo)
Madeline (Maddie)

I actually really like them all!

Jessica or Madeline (but Maddie is quite a popular name)

MrsBungle Sun 15-Jun-14 22:26:59

Madeleine is my favourite name but I don't like maddie.

I do like Josephine/Josie

I quite like Josephine, haven't heard that for a while. The other two I've heard a bit more.

Josephine/Josie is lovely and classic.

Jessica sounds a little bit dated as it was so popular in the 80s/90s, and Madeleine is pretty but makes me think of McCann and cakes.

Definitely Josephine! The other two are a bit overdone. I like Josie as a nickname.

I think I'm leaning towards Jessica with Madeleine being a close second x

BlueStarsAtNight Sun 15-Jun-14 22:43:24

Jessica (tho popularity does slightly put me off ), then Josephine, then Madeleine.

I do really like them all though!

I like Madeline (and Maddie). I think it's really pretty..
But unfortunately it has a sad association, so I wouldn't choose it.
Jessica is a bit overused these days, but also a pretty name.

Devora Sun 15-Jun-14 22:45:49

Jessica or Josephine. I like Josie.

I don't know any little Jessicas - is it really that popular?

BikeRunSki Sun 15-Jun-14 22:48:23

Josephine is one of my favourite names ever

hashtagwhatever Sun 15-Jun-14 22:50:09

Not keen on Jessica. Think it is just a bit bore.

I like Josephine the most.

FreeLikeABird Sun 15-Jun-14 22:51:29

Jessica love Jess for shortened too.

Bellyrub1980 Sun 15-Jun-14 22:51:49

Thank you!

Options of Jo, Josie, Posy.

manicinsomniac Sun 15-Jun-14 22:58:12

I have a 7 year old Jessica so I'm biased. I know it's supposed to be really popular (top 20 maybe?) but I only know of 5 (including dd) between the ages of 4 and 16.

I also love Madeleine and quite like Josephine.

We've had lots of people remind us of the missing Madeline. We hadn't ever thought of that previously.
