Help, I can't decide. Any views?

The other two are a bit frill-tastic.

Imogen. It's a gorgeous name (biased.....dd's name grin)

All lovely, I realise that's no help at all but thought it might put your mind at rest that they are all great names grin

Annabel without the Beauty and the Beast ending

Matilda. Beautiful name

Without doubt. But with that spelling.

Imogen- underused

Annabel, fresh, pretty and also underused. I also know a lovely lovely Annabel.

I like them all. If I had to choose it would be Imogen, then Annabelle.

I'm not going to be much help as I like them all.

But I'd go for the Annabel spelling as I find Annabelle too frilly.

Agree with everyone else - lose the Disney spelling of Annabel.

I like Imogen and Matilda. Not so much Annabelle, it's a bit frou-frou for me!

Love them all, I would rank them:
Anabelle (that's the spelling we would have used for DD if we hadn't gone for another name)

Imogen. Lovely name although hard to nicknameify which is why I didn't go for it for my DD (any name I will turn into a nickname whether I intend to or not). I knew an Imogen called Imo and it didn't really work as a nn.

My DP loves Imogen. I think it sounds like a 50 year old librarian.

I like Annabelle out of your options

Not Annabelle/Annabel.

Lots of little Imogen's running around my area.

Matilda is nice but a bit...clunky.

Imogen (nn Immi or Genny)

I have an Imogen and haven't regretted it for a moment. Everywhere we go, people love it. We abbreviate to Ima and it works! She calls herself Ima. Also Ginny.

Pandora37 Thu 30-Oct-14 20:10:56

Annabel, but only with this spelling. I agree that Annabelle is too frou frou (although I don't feel the same about Isabelle. Don't know why). I like Matilda and Imogen as well though.
