Needs to go with sister Emilia. Any opinions gratefully received as we cannot decide!!

Tabitha. It's one of my favourite girl's names, but dh vetoed it every time.

Evelyn/Eve is too popular for me, and Rose is a bit < meh> perfectly nice, but doesn't grab me.

In order of my preference:

Rose (Rosie)
Evelyn (Evie)
Tabitha (Tabs)

Tabitha is top! Unusual without being outlandish.

Tabitha by a mile

Torn between Tabitha and Rose. On balance I think Rose, with Emilia. No wait, Tabitha!

ha, I am helpful grin

Tabitha. Not keen on others.

I like Rose, then Evelyn and then Tabitha. They are all lovely names.

I think Rose goes the best with Emilia, but I would, as my dd1 is Emilia Rose!

Don't like Evelyn. Sounds like Evil in

Tabitha or what about Rosa?

Adore Tabitha.

Definitely Tabitha - lovely name, and goes really well with Emilia. Rosa/Rosanna would be lovely too.

Love your choices!

I have a Tabitha Evelyn (we say it Ev - lyn not Eve - lyn) and her sister's mn is Rose!

We have an Evelyn (we pronounce it Ev-ah-lyn), so I may be a bit biased. I prefer Rose to Tabitha.

Thanks!! I'm surprised Tabitha gets so many votes, and not one cat mention which was a concern. DH is sold on Evelyn or Rose. I like them but am worried the first is too common with all the Evies and Evas and it doesn't go so well with siblings and agree Rose is a bit 'meh' as a first name but it is lovely and was my grandmothers name. Wish we'd sorted this before the birth and wish one of these felt like 'the' name for both of us.

I prefer Rose, not keen on the other two.

If it helps, the Emilias I know have sisters called Josephine and Martha.
