Alexandra (nn alex)

I have no idea why they all end in 'a', not deliberate! Dd1 has a name ending in 'a' also, must be some unconscious bias.

Julia or Alexandra

MrsZiegler Wed 30-Jul-14 10:42:06

I don't like Tessa at all.
Maria is meh.
Julia & Alexandra are v. nice.
Love Anna.

(imo of course!)

Middleagedmotheroftwo Wed 30-Jul-14 10:44:18

I love Anna too.

Rest are fine, quite nice, but Anna is my fave.

Julia is lovely and pretty, it's due a revival.
Love Anna too.

Bowlersarm Wed 30-Jul-14 10:48:58

Nice list OP.

Not at all keen on Maria.

I really like Tessa or Anna.

Shockingundercrackers Wed 30-Jul-14 10:51:36

Lovely names! Tessa, Anna and Alex are my favourites.

Not so keen on Maria or Julia but they're both good choices, classic but unusual.

ThinkIveBeenHacked Wed 30-Jul-14 10:53:15

Prefer Juliet to Julia.

Love Alex (but would have just alex)

Also like Anna

Anna, Maria and Alexandra are my favourites.

They are all lovely. I love Tessa and Julia the most. Like Maria too. Anna might have a moment after Frozen... I anticipate classes full of Annas and Elsas in a few years!

MrsWinnibago Wed 30-Jul-14 12:07:25

I love Tessa.

Franglais80 Wed 30-Jul-14 12:56:29

Love Anna (though I agree it might have a surge in popularity because of Frozen). Julia is nice too, but not as nice as Anna imo. Anna is more ageless I think. Not keen on Tessa or Maria sorry.

ButterflyOfFreedom Wed 30-Jul-14 13:17:38

Anna is the nicest by far, lovely name!

misog2000 Wed 30-Jul-14 13:25:36

Maria's spend their lives being called Marie despite it being a totally different name - from one who knows smile

wigglesrock Wed 30-Jul-14 13:47:46

I like Anna the best, but I'm biased smile . I prefer Juliet to Julia, I always think Julia's a bit dated. I know lots of female Alex, about 10 and under, it's nice but just nice iykwim. I really like Maria.

I have 3 daughters all their names end in a smile

Sophronia Wed 30-Jul-14 13:55:33

Julia or Maria.

Anna and Alexandra are nice too.

Not keen on Tessa.

BlueChampagne Wed 30-Jul-14 14:10:28

Anna or Julia (though I also prefer Juliet).

Pandora37 Wed 30-Jul-14 15:30:46

Tessa is my favourite but they're all nice. If I had to narrow it down, I'd cross off Julia as it strikes me as being a bit dated still and Anna and Maria as they're the more internationally popular, "plainer" choices. But then again, I like their simplicity and they're not that common amongst young children (completely unhelpful).

Cuppatea14 Wed 30-Jul-14 20:36:07

Thanks for all the feedback, looks like Anna is a general favourite! Don't know if that makes me like it more or worry that it's on the verge of being really popular (my sister had an Ava, really original for about a nanosecond)

Snog Wed 30-Jul-14 20:54:06

Tessa is fab
