We've got 8 weeks and still completely undecided. I think it's down to these three but any similar suggestions much is Arthur. Surname is very tricky and ugly and starts with a U (pronounced you if that makes sense!)

I think I like Margot best. Pretty, classic and classy.

Not Delphi. Cecily and Margot are both nice though.

A vote for Delphi here, but then I would, wouldn't I ;)

Actually really like Cecily too.

I'm not keen on any but I do like Delphine rather than Delphi.

Delphine surely? unless she's a place. With an oracle.

I love Cecily, or Cecilia.

But I think Cecilia Yewtree sounds better than Cecily Yewtree. ( inventing surname).

I like Margot ( and puhlease not Margaux) tho less than Cecily or Cecilia. Imv it sounds better with Yewtree than Cecily but not so good as Cecilia

I don't like Delphi. Sounds as though you can't decide between a place with a sybil or a plant.

But how about these

Sybil, or Sibilla
Jennifer, which is another version of Guinevere, to go with Arthur, it Gwen
Morgana, again an Arthurian name
Ursula, meaning little bear, as Arthur means bear. Ursula Yewtree looks unusual but sounds nice. Ursula Cecily Yewtree sounds lovely.

Oh I wish I had had more children.

I like Margot but eg

Whoops ignore final sentence.

Felicity or Felicia
Letitia, Letty or Lettice
Veronica or Verena or Verity
Hetty, for Henrietta
Isolde or Ghislaine , both Arthurian names

Wild card, Berenice

Delphi but only if it's short for Delphine or Delphina.

Cecily is my favourite, not keen on Margot, quite like Delphine but not Delphi.

love Margot!

I'm not keen on Cecily (The Importance of Being Ernest -?) but love Cecelia/Cece.

I like Margot.

Love Cecily, like Margot, dislike Delphi.

burgatroyd Fri 14-Nov-14 07:52:05

Cecily, Cecelia, etc, sounds lovely but don't like the meaning.

Delphine, with Delphi or Della as a nn is my fave.

How about Elaine? Very Arthurian and a lovely sound.

tilbatilba Fri 14-Nov-14 07:57:13

Delphi without hesitation and I work with children - utterly utterly beautiful and so underused - go well xxxx

tammytoby Fri 14-Nov-14 08:40:14

Delphine or Delphi! Lovely.

The pronunciation confusion of Mar-gaux vs Mar-gott and the meaning of Cecile would put me off.

Spirael Fri 14-Nov-14 09:14:20

There is a computer programming language called Delphi and that's what my mind immediately jumps to. However, that may not be a problem for non-geeks!

Never heard of Delphi as a name. Cecily and Margot are lovely. What about Celia?

MargotLovedTom Fri 14-Nov-14 10:27:15

I have never heard Margot pronounced Mar-gott before.

Only1scoop Fri 14-Nov-14 10:28:07

Delphi or Margo

Only1scoop Fri 14-Nov-14 10:28:48

How about Celeste?

TheBiggestDinosaur Fri 14-Nov-14 10:47:35

Not Delphi

I like Cecily and Margot. Also like Cicely, I think it looks nicer written down than Cecily and could still have the same nickname, but it avoids the possibility of people using "Cecil" as the nickname instead.
